    Greetings everyone. I'm new to vaping and only received my starting kit a week ago. My kids had been suggesting that I vape for a while now, however I really didn't know where to start. As luck would have it my boss' wife (who also works with us) is pretty determined to quit smoking. She did the research and ordered her first kit from the U.S. Being pleased with the results of her first vaping experiment, she was determined to get both myself and her husband (the boss) vaping as well and ordered kits for us both. When the kit arrived she refused to be reimbursed for the cost and told me it was an early Christmas present from the firm. How good is that! As an aside, we're Posties so we deliver the vaping orders that everyone eagerly awaits.

    Thanks RC. We're contractors on an island and as drivers we deliver both the mail and parcels. It's always really satisfying to make someone's day by delivering exactly what they've been waiting for.

    Ha, I dragged my Parcel Postie in the other day as he asked me for a glass of water.

    I gave him some of my cold drip coffee and a bottle of water to take with him.

    He seemed a bit edgy about coming in at first, I mean I am not that scary, I don't think.

    Gotta take care of our Posties.

    I'm glad that you're kind to your Parcel Postie. Almost without exception the people we deliver to are charming and because we're a small community we get to know everyone. It's great at Christmas time as we invariably get showered with gifts, particularly wine.

    Welcome to VCA Twistie, I bet you get stalked all the time LOL
    Vapers often can be seen stalking the postie!
    :rofl:

    So what type of kit do you have?

    Thanks Emu. I'm on Russell, which is between Straddie and the mainland. I get to take in fab water views to Straddie every day at work. As my supervisor said to me on the first day of training, "if this is being poor, I'll take it every day" :sillygrin:

    Thanks Noe. I'm frequently being stalked which is fine by me. In fact, if I see one of my customers before I get to their place I usually stop and make the delivery there and then. It's the sort of customer service that they appreciate.

    I'm using a vaporfi Rocket at the moment although I'm keen on getting a pipe. I've posted a thread on it asking for advice.

    Welcome Twistie.

    Inevitably I have a picture of a packet of chips by the same name in my head but there again I'm a weirdo!

    Actually glad to hear that the old fashioned act of giving and receiving gifts at Christmas time is still alive as from what I've seen it's deemed inappropriate now.

    Welcome to vaping.
    It's shed loads more enjoyable than smoking but can turn into a hobby as well.

    I hasten to add one that I will forever be grateful for finding.

    My handle comes from the name of a dog I once had (not the one pictured) although I must admit that when I hear of Twisties I often think of the old Skyhooks' song, "Smut". I guess that just shows how old I am LOL :cheeky:

    Welcome to the cafe Twistie. Wish you were my parcel postie, I can order anything and everything without being worried about my parcel not arriving or being left in the open for lurking eyes. My postie isn't friendly at all :( and doesn't like to say hi back when he's greeted. Oh well. At least some lucky people up in QLD got you as their postie.

    Enjoy your time here and ask away with any questions :)

    Now when I see the word smut I think of something completely different which I won't elaborate on.

    Great minds think alike.

    I was considering asking him to move to Perth but by the sound of it he's far better off where he is.
