    How did you come across ecigs for the first time

    As the title says ..

    I came across it on the WP forum by accident while at work.
    I am curious as to how much effect the loss of the WP forum may affect take up.

    maybe I am a rarity ..

    I first discovered it mid-late 2009 with my discovery of them on DX. Ordered in a unit, it was shit and forgot about it again until about January 2010.

    I am a poster on SomethingAwful.com and they have an ecig thread in the gadgets section I came across, it was at that time I realised there were more to
    ecigs then this DX shit, I went from reading the entire SA thread and WP thread and placing orders for decent hardware.

    I first saw something on the news then somehow I came across the katherine heigl on David letterman video on youtube. After lots of researching I came across this site and was more than happy with the advice I got here. I dont bother with any other ecig forums now.

    In 2009 an American friend sent me a link to the "super-sexy" blu-cig ads (everything starts with the porn industry!). We made fun of it, thought it was stupid, who on earth would want to smoke electronically?! A few months later I was talking to another friend about wanting to quit and he mentioned ecigs as well. We both trawled ECF and ended up with 410's and 510's and they worked for a while. I did go back to smoking after numerous problems with my 510 setup, but I'm happy to say that this time around the ego is working out VERY well for me.

    So yeah, I think I found out through word of mouth... and maybe youtube for the blu-cig lolz.
    MoD for short.

    Word of mouth...

    I actually came across it on whirlpool too. I often read the gadgets section to look for new toys and found the thread there. A few google searches later and I ended up at HC.

    Was searching isohunt.com for a torrent and one of those annoying ads for an overpriced 510 type caught my eye. Couldn't believe I'd never heard of them before especially as my body was telling me to get away from the smoke again. Lots of research later and reading this forum and the rest is history. Feel much, much better and haven't looked back!
    Cheers.... Pete.

    Bought one in a night market in malaysia. It was a piece of crap but got me interested enough to do some research whereupon I found WP and this forum.
