    In 2011 with my Vapor brothers ripoff, Easy Vape. I liked it but was really into joints at the time.

    Back in, I think 03 or 04, my brother bought a vapor brothers box for $150 or something. I for some reason never jumped on the vape train at that time, but that was my first experience trying it. Really dug it, wanted to get my own box, but at the time, I was too busy spending every spare dime on $50 eighths to save up. He ended up sending the unit out to a family member with emphysema, and that box is still a daily driver for the guy well over a decade later. Those vapor bros. boxes are/were tanks! Amazing to see how much the industry has taken off since then as well!

    In Easy Times coffee shop Amsterdam around 2 years ago, I was 19/20.

    It has a Volcano digital customers can use, me and a friend probably put near on a G in there and we didn't stop till the bag was gone. Wow that got us high. Didn't get me at all into vaping though, that was a fair bit later.

    My first vape experience was in 2011 with something kind of like this...it was kind of, well it was, rubbish, and I only used it a couple times. Made me cough a lot, but didn't seem to produce a lot of vapour...Got an MFLB a year later(which I use at home with a PA attached to a homemade mason jar bubbler). But I have just purchased an Underdog, which I am looking forward to arriving :)

    Mine was on a volcano classic, I had a really nice session with a friend, didn't reach for tobacco all night long, it took a while to get my own but I've had it nearly a year now, I ditched tobacco just over a month ago and switched to vaping completely :)

    First vape technically I guess hot knives on an electric range with hashish? 2 dozen years ago or more. Fast forward and it was a PAX that I saw a guy had at a party. Loved the form factor and did some reading. Bought a PAX and the vape obsession began.

    My friend bought a Volcano many years ago, so myself and a few friends tried it out and it was pretty cool, but I remember there not being a whole lot of visible vapour and I found it confusing to not have any visible feedback.

    My first personal time was with the Herbalaire 2.2 and I was pretty impressed, it wasn't such a heavy high and it felt so much better.

    I lost my "vapinity" to a gorgeous blonde MFLB in my bedroom 3 years ago. Yes I admit, I did pay for her; but I don't feel guilty as she gave me great pleasure and still does to this day.

    I bought a vape that looked like a gumball machine, with a dish that came up inside. The cost was somewhere around 80-120, can't remember for sure. It tasted totally disgusting, I'm pretty sure it was combusting, and it was very inefficient with the weed compared to smoking. It was super flimsy, huge and cumbersome. Turned me off of vapes for several years.

    Mine was with a Solo. It was brand new and I was too scared to push the stem in as it was incredibly tight even when warm. So I thought you were supposed to just kinda hold the stem up to the oven area. :) Next day I figured it out. I still loved the heck out of it though even using it incorrectly, tasted SO good.

    Oh, actually first time with a vape was with a vapor bros at a friends house. I loved that as well. But the time with my Solo was my first time with my own vape.

    My frind bought two vapir things looked like stick blenders. We hit it and thought it didn't get you stoned so forgot about them. We were so heavily addicted to nicotine that we 'couldn't get high' from vapes. Haha how foolish we were

    I got an Ascent at a local vaporizer shop based on the salesclerk's recommendation in March, 2014. An on-line Florida friend in another (private) forum had mentioned using/liking a desktop model vaporizer (forget which one). I was intimidated by desktop models so got a portable. Loaded and began using it immediately. It didn't work very well for me even after modifications and has been in the closet since my herbalAire H2.2 arrived in August, 2014. Had a 2nd, wonderful "1st experience" with that. It was recommended by someone here. :)

    First experience was finding this site in 2011/2012, and buying a vapolution 1.0, then a vriptech 1.0 after that. The folks at the dispensary I frequented didn't even know what vaping was back then. A lot has changed since then. But I owe it all to the cool folks at FC!

    I bought da Buddha vaporizer, black, and sat down with then girl friend and did what the people in the videos from the innerwebs told me to do.

    We were connecting that we couldn't really feel anything, and I only noticed a thin wispy stream of light bluish smoke down the length of the hosr.
    While discussing not feeling high, we rambled on and on while I held the wand forever. We only took a couple tokes each. I'm sure I loaded the bowl like you would for smoking, too. Huge amount of weed.

    To this day a friend says vaping doesn't work for him. Lol

    I heard about vaporizing and decided to quit combustion in 2011. I first bought a vaporgenie and I was a bit disappointed because I wasn't as high as when smoking (certainly because of nicotine). Then I bought an arizer extreme Q but I didn't entirely quit smoking. I started to grow my own weed and my girlfriend who did not smoke asked me to try vaporizing and that motivated me to definitively quit smoking. It was two years ago and since then I did not smoke again and I really enjoy vaporizing.

    I'm really trying to pinpoint it down. I think my buddy told me about the MFLB, and then I did some research. Ended up getting an Arizer EQ like two months after I started smoking. I joined FC shortly thereafter, and have been here, going through devices, ever since.

    Around 2007 a friend of mine had a Volcano. The trouble is, every time I used it I had already been hitting blunts, pipes etc just minutes before that, I was already high, so I never got a feel for REAL vaping. Then I fell out of touch with the guy and continued smoking out of glass for the next 9 years. It wasn't until summer 2016 that I finally vaped in the right context: from true sobriety, with a commitment to quitting smoking. I did it with an Alfa, my first vape, and I haven't looked back since. Every day this thing amazes me. I guess that's what happens when you smoke for 15 years and suddenly give it up cold turkey and start vaping exclusively. I'm never going back to combusting unless I'm forced to (i.e. the apocalypse hits and there's no more power grid to charge a vaporizer with). My cousin got a Volcano recently and I tried it out in the right context this time, and now I don't ever want to smoke again.

    I first used my MFLB about 7 or 8 years ago. I never quite got the hang of it, but stuck with it until I got my Vapor Brothers and I started to catch on. I eventually threw out the obnoxiously multicolored swirly, glass bong my ex girlfriend left behind.

    Tried a Chinese "Vapor Brothers" style whip/box in June 09 at senior beach week, like it alot.

    Bought a Chinese Vapor Brothers style whip/box from Ebay in November of that year for my college dorm. It worked decent enough, horrible temp gauge and glass super fragile. Wand broke, heater glass broke, just pitched it moving out of dorm. $50 I think it was.

    Bought a MFLB in June 10 and used it a ton throughout the year. By June 11, the batteries were pretty kicked and cashed on them and I did not use it.

    Than I got a Firefly in November 14 and been smoke free since.
