Hello, I'm F1r3b1rd here on vaping underground, my friends call me Tony. I never intended to vape full time or get so deep into it that I would become a fixture on a forum. It was an interesting road. I started vaping at first in October of 2013 as a lazy way to grab a cig at night when I didn't want to go outside. I had bought a an Ego/evod and an eroll cigaike kit. After that, the cigalike laughed at me and the ego fell apart. I then picked up an MVP2.0 and a CE4. I was happy using both until march; when, I was going into the hospital for a surgery with an extended stay. I went and bought some high nic juice and braced myself for withdrawals. Withdrawals didn't come. I was perfectly content that week in the hospital with my MVP and no cigarette. So content in fact, that when I got out, I rewarded myself with a provari and kayfun. After that, I was hooked on a new habit- vaping! But never smoked another cigarette. I then found the online community that most of us came from and later found Joe's blog. That blog is responsible for me spending so much money to save money. That I should really thank Joe by asking for a refund.(or pizza) Since that provari purchase alot of gear has come and gone, my nic level has dropped to zero, I have taught myself diy and I've made a ton of friends that I've never met in real life. I've been on vu for a while, and enjoy helping noobs quit the cigs when I get the chance.I also enjoy sharing the knowledge I've gained and learning from the others.
