    Hey! I’ve no real story to tell for now. I’ve been interested in vaping for a while and wanted to see what the community here is like. Plus gather information from experienced capers before truly taking the plunge. Been lurking for a bit, but I want to join the conversation and ask questions. This place seems great and I’m glad to be here!

    Thank you all for your warm welcome! I do love the open and honest atmosphere here.

    To be honest, might as well since I’m a stranger on the internet (wink), I became interested in vaping when a friend of mine mentioned that she smoked (she has vaped too, I think) as a way to slow down and relax. Now, from what I’ve seen and heard being a non-smoker interested in vaping is not usually welcomed. But such as it is, I am. But I am NOT interested in picking up an addiction to nicotine. (My interest peaked when I heard zero nicotine e-juice.) I am, however, interested in having something that assists me in taking a moment for myself. Something that requires steadying myself and breathing. Something that lets me focus on the moment and connect with myself.

    There are some that go bat-shit crazy over the idea of a nonsmoker vaping, but I am not one of them :)

    I used to be normal but then that vaping nicotine destroyed my pre-frontal cortex.

    Ha!! You really made me laugh! Thanks for that. I’m all for normal being relative, it’s good to be different I say. Even if that puts us on the “crazy” side of things. You’re from the US? Are most people on the forum from the States?

    What @JuicyLucy said is true, with some narrow-minded folk who think you need to be a member of the idiot club (smokers) before you're "entitled" to vape... but I think there are a lot more of those morons over at ECF, than around here.

    It's ENTIRELY possible to vape without nicotine -- even some former smokers eventually get to that point, but it does seem to be mostly never-smokers or maybe those who quit smoking a real long time ago, who prefer to vape 0mg.

    I was a 39 yr member of the idiot club myself, but I welcome anyone to vaping who is interested in it -- even young folks, since vaping can PREVENT smoking as much as it can help one quit smoking. After over 4 yrs without smoking, the prevention is the main reason I still vape and have no plans to ever stop, and I think that goes for a lot of us around here.

    Welcome to the GROWNUP, non-fascist forum -- nice to meetcha! :wave:

    Yea it’s a free country (kinda) and your an adult (assuming) so who am I to tell you not to vape unless you are trying to quit smoking. Personally I don’t think vaping nicotine is anywhere near as addictive as cigarettes and not really that bad for you, based on my personal experience. Hell in moderation nicotine has many health benefits and shows promise in slowing/preventing Alzheimer’s disease: it also keeps my ticker pumping blood throughout my body at a nice pace. It’s like calisthenics for your heart. Hey if people can get past, can they also get future??? Sorry got sidetracked but yea based on my scientific research that compares the effects of smoking to vaping, not only does your health stop deteriorating when you stop smoking and start vaping. It actually improves, at least that’s what the research I’ve conducted on myself has shown after 5+ years. So in short, vape on, vaper and if you ever get confronted in a hostile manner by someone asking you “WHERE DID YOU LEARN TO DO THIS!!!!”, Tell them “Vaping Underground, that’s where. Jerk!!, now push on....I SAID PUSH ON!!!”.

    I still think my disorientation on quantum metaphysics in the digital age should have counted toward the doctorate degree. Not my fault all those that could understand it are either dead or done moved into the 11th dimension for tax breaks. Still miss that Cornelius Agrippa fellow, he at the least could hold four thoughts independently in his mind even they were all opposing each other.

    But no, the high council of the Invisible University of Magic banned the work from peer review due to a slip up. I forgot to remove some spells and talisman images. So, *cough* my paper became a weapon. Not altogether my fault either, I had to run around doing blacksmith quests & chasing wild geese for little miss Muffet. Hm, still not sure how she was involved but at any rate, ... *continues muttering on a bit, looks up* And by the way new person, we crazies run this asylum. :) *ambles on along and mutters about needing to find a sprocket for the socket, sighs ...*

    Ah, um ... not sure there's an Adderall ejuice sold or made, although would imagine you could find anything if you looked under the wrong rocks. If I'm misreading what you might be looking for in your statement, I humbly apologize. Try not to mind me, even I don't mind me. *chuckles* I just get lost everywhere and nowhere.

    This is one those times when my question is simple, ... does it matter? *grin* I think it's all in the spirit of it that matters. Oh poop, got to looking one way and pixies grabbed my lighter and ran the other way. *goes to follow and get his lighter back, cues some tunes*
