FREE eCig Raffle!

Hello Members!

I wanted to tell you guys about a raffle for a V2 Ultimate eCig starter kit. Actually, several of them valued at $180 (retail) will be raffled off every Friday through 8/16/2013. There is NO cost or obligation to buy anything so the admin here gave me permission to post about it. THANKS! Smile

For anyone looking for a system similar to a cigarette, this is a great kit with everything you could ever need. It would even make a nice gift for a friend if you don’t really need one yourself.…eaway.html


Re: come tell us about yourself – by: Mrs. G

I see this thread hasn’t had much activity on it in a while but I’ll post anyway. So Hi everybody, my name is Sharon.
I’ve been smoking for 25 years and have toyed with quitting off and on. Recently I decided that I really, REALLY needed to quit. The problem is that I have a disease that stress causes to flare up at times (CRPS). The flares are incredibly painful and I spend much time in hospital when they happen. So, the stress of quitting cold turkey was not an option. Cutting back on regular smokes was just not going to happen. When I "discovered" vaping it seemed like just what I needed. I can step down the level of nicotine and still get the physical and psychological "fix" that smoking gave me. This has been a life saver. I won’t ever stop vaping. I just won’t have the nicotine in my body. I’m one enough medications as it is and the extra chemical isn’t helping. I’m so thrilled to have found this community on line.
My condition has already banished me to a wheelchair and that is isolating in itself. Smoking isolates you further and makes you smell like an ashtray. Vaping….I retain the social aspect, meet others with the same interest, and don’t smell like I crawled out from the bottom of a communal ash tray! Looking forward to learning all I can about my new found hobby!

Another ECF refugee – by: lksquirrel

Hi nice people. 🙂

At ECF I’m a supplier associate. Because of their extensive rules and ridiculous attitudes I am not allowed to participate as part of the vaping community. I do NOT want to be a vendor here. I do not own the company. I answer the phone and take care of the stupid, useless forum at ECF. My company does not and will never advertise here. We do not sell anything 99% of you would even want. Trust me on that. If anyone wants more specific information I am happy to give it. But all I want is a place I can talk about vaping, show off my new toys and the stuff I make for them and possibly be of service to newbies or anyone else. I will not talk about the company I work for unless someone has a private question. i will not display links in my signature or anywhere else that point to my company. But I don’t want to have to pretend to be someone else and I’ve been on ECF for several years so it’s likely that someone here will recognize me. I figured it is better to be up front and honest at the beginning. I am basically a shameless hussy with no brand loyalty …I buy just about anything from anyone…LOL. I want to be able to share the cool things that I find …or the great prices…..or that special out of stock item that just came back in stock….without being accused of….well….I really don’t know WTF they think I’m trying to do when I post about those things. It can’t possibly benefit me or my company to give links and kind words about other vendors. But the attitude of distrust is so pervasive there seems no way to overcome it. I just want a nice, friendly place where I can be part of the gang. Can I do that here?

Whoa! I found a safe space! – by: Mrs. G

Hello everybody!
I’m so glad to have found this forum. It’s hard enough being accepted when I live a "vintage lifestyle" let alone the use of e-cigs. I’m totally new to the vape community and I started to help me kick the nicotine habit. I hate the nicotine but I love the act of smoking. What really does it for me is that once I kick the nicotine, I can still vape. It calms me. I suffer from a condition called CRPS and along with the mind blowing pain comes panic attacks. Smoking often helped with that. This disease has no known cure so I know I will always have the urge to smoke when the flares hit. I’m thrilled to have found vaping. This will keep the nicotine out and still give me the same "cues" that trigger calming when the attacks hit. Loving it! Loving that there are others I can compare notes on and learn from.
