1. Welcome to Thailand Vapers, an English language forum for members in Thailand and the rest of Asia to talk about vaping.
    Commonly referred to as e-cigarettes, vaping is really about the use of personal vaporizers (mods) and atomizers (tanks, clearos, RBAs, RDAs, RTAs) filled with e-liquid.
    Are you looking to get started or an old hand at vaping? Everyone is welcome here so sign up today and talk vaping with us!

    So this coming month is going to be 9 years of me vaping, this Forum being born and what a wild 9 years it's been.
    I had a go not so long back in stopping vaping but that didn't last long.
    Vaping is just the norm for me now, my one device, one tank and one vape juice does what I need it to do and that's that.

    Still very happy I started this Forum those 9 years ago, as it helped so much in the early years and also made some great online friends and also friends I met in real life at the meet ups we once used to do.
    Anyway, glad to see who ever still checks in on the Forum are still here.

    Congrats mate. I think about giving it up from time-to-time but I like the flavors too much! I hit 8 years in December...best thing I ever did. I'm sure I'd be dead by now if I hadn't quit smoking!

    Let's hope cooler heads eventually prevail and vaping becomes legal here again. ;)

    That's too bad...we'll have to organize new ones if vaping ever becomes legal here! :D

    @Tibo - are you listening? ;)

    I forgot how long I have been vaping, 7, 8, 9, 10 years ?
    What I remember is that it helped me quit smoking very quickly and by doing so changed my life as I became more aware of taking care of myself. I became less and less interested in what I did for more than 20 years and it changed my daily routine.
    Thanks for creating this forum it has been very useful and interesting.

    Just checked when i became member here in this forum and it was Apr. 2013 so that's the time i started vaping. Like V mentioned in our day's i have one device, one tank and one juice i mix myself and that's it. I do still have a RTD but can't be bothered to use it.
    Still have the shirt too:) but it seems like i missed the hat since this is the first time i hear about it. Would for sure have gotten one.
    How about a hat for the 10 years anniversary so due of this still fine forum with it's fewer but still fine people?

    5 years ago I was diagnosed with throat cancer but was on time and could be lasered away. I was a very heavy smoker and then switched to vaping right away. Still alive and vaping saved my life or I would have started smoking again. Coming to live in Thailand in November 2021 and still have to find my way in vape country a bit. Made my own liquid and have yet to find all the ingredients. Very happy with this forum.

    Think it was 7 years for me last August.
    Been vaping the same tank and juice for about 3 years now. Buy a new mini mod replacement once a year. Vape around 2ml a day.

    Bought a Dicodes and charger for my birthday in October- haven't even used it

    Take care, all.
    **Updated**
    Must have mine still too in Thailand. Packed a suitcase expecting to return in a few months- 2.5 years ago
