Hi everyone! I’m Huckleberried, this is a little about me.

I started smoking when I was 15 years old, which at this very moment, looks horrifying! Oh gosh, that’s so sad! Have you ever typed that out? :(

Fast forward 30 years! (even more horrifying)…

I really had no desire to stop smoking. I had tried a couple of times with most things people try, nothing worked, so why try again? It was my best friend with coffee in the morning, went with me everywhere, hung out with me when I was stressed, happy, sad, “normal”. We were together through everything. Because quitting hadn’t worked out for me, the thought of trying again just scared me.

One day I came home from work and my boyfriend had gotten an eGo kit in the mail. He had mentioned it, having seen his nephew using one, but I didn’t realize he had ordered one. He said he liked it, had been using it all day and hadn’t had a cigarette since. WHAT?! He handed it to me to try. I coughed, like most do, then I guess I made a face, because he started laughing. I didn’t know what to expect, but it was not that flavor! Flavor?? LOL He suggested I try to find something menthol around town, his kit came with 2 of everything, so why not? The next day I ended up at a Smoker’s Outlet, LOL. They carried about 10 flavors, I got a menthol one, drove home, and had him show me how to do it. At the time, I thought it wasn’t bad, so decided to give it a try.

I started researching “electronic cigarette” online. I was stunned with all the links that came up. One link I kept running across was ECF, so I did more reading there. I eventually joined and I did learn quite a bit. It was enough to get me going in the right direction. It took me 3 weeks to finally put down cigarettes. My last cigarette was July 28, 2013.

I stumbled into a group of THE BEST people, and continued to chat with them daily (still do, but here!). I learned about better vaping devices, how to rebuild coils, where to buy better juices and, eventually, make my own! My stay there was about 9 months, until their mods, doing what they do best, decided one of our pals couldn’t play anymore. This lead to all of us abandoning ship for our brave New World: The Underground.

I’ve been a member here since July 3, 2014, a different kind of independence for me. I’ve had a wonderful time here with my pals, and I’ve been amazed at how much VU has grown since I joined. I see many, many new faces, and many old friends, too. It’s really a beautiful thing.

Vapers are some of the best, most genuine, caring and generous people I've ever come across. I'm having the time of my life! All because I found vaping and quit smoking. Amazing. Still blows me away.



(On an odd note, there’s a commercial about quitting smoking on TV right now. Thanks, but I’m covered. ;) )

Beat a 30 year habit! Yea! Congratulations. Why can't all the groups trying to shut down this industry, just wake up.

Yep, the old thread was what lead me here. This is the place to be, but I urge all aspiring DIYers to read that thread and "Inawera, a few reviews" so they can become competent in no time.
