VAPING – the act of using a vapor product (or an electronic cigarette).
A tobacco cigarette is lit on fire by the user, who inhales the resulting smoke into their lungs. Use of vapor products involves no combustion — no fire, no ash, no smoke. Therefore, early adopters of the technology began to call this “vaping.”
Instead of relying on combustion, vapor products utilize a battery-powered atomizer. The low heat generated by the battery allows for the vaporization of the “e-liquid” that is used in the product. E-liquid generally contains only four or five base ingredients — propylene glycol and/or vegetable glycerin for a base, as well as flavorings, distilled water, and optional nicotine.
To vape, the user will pull from a mouth piece at the top of a vapor product. Once the battery is activated, the battery sends power to the atomizer located on top of the battery. The atomizer then heats up the e-liquid solution and turns it into a vapor.
What can vaping do for smokers?
Millions of smokers have switched to vaping and been delighted with the results. Here’s what some of them have to say.
Ex Smoker since 2008 thanks to Vaping
I quit a 20 year habit of smoking tobacco cigarettes the day my first quality starter kit arrived. I was already feeling better within the first week and things have just kept getting better and better for me.
42-year Smoker, 3-week Vaper
Started when I was 13 years old, now 55. Tried to quit many times, nicotine patches, gum, cold turkey, never managed more then a few days. It’s only been 3 weeks since I started vaping but I have not had a cigarette since.
Finally Smoke Free thanks to VAPING
25 years smoking, being diagnosed with COPD and a friend turned me onto Vaping. 18 days without a need or want for a cig! To me that’s a huge win!
Vaping saved my life, which in turned saved 4+ others!
I smoked for over 16 year, one pack a day if not more. Just in September 2015 I walked into a vape shop and asked what was the best device to help me to quit the cigarettes. From that day on, I haven’t touched one.
I was a smoker for 27 years
I was a smoker for 27 years. I made many attempts to quit during that time. I used the nicotine patch, the nicotine gum, the nicotine lozenge, hypnosis and will power. On December 17, 2010 I purchased an electronic cigarette and I have been a non smoker since that very first puff.
Brilliant alternative to cigarette smoking
When you consider that almost 450,000 people die every year from cigarette smoking diseases, and so far no national health service has noted any significant cases of people hospitalised cases from vaping, that should tell you something.
4+ years vaping
I stopped smoking the day after I started vaping and never missed cigarettes! I have no complications from vaping, like I did from smoking, and I don’t stink like an ashtray!
Thank you, Son.
One day my son Carlos arrived home with a Mechanical Mod. I tried the device, the flavor the vapor and the beauty of the device got my attention. Thanks to my son, I have a new hobby and have been smoke free for over five months.
El vapeo si funciona!!!
Vaping works and works well! The body does not lie. I feel much better physically and emotionally.
I started dipping at 14 I’m now 49. Vaping got me off of dipping. I’ve been vaping for two years. I feel better and I don’t crave the tobacco. I think vaping is the best thing that’s happened and I know a lot people it has helped stop smoking and dipping.
The hardest thing I’ve ever done
After about a week I’ve not had any urge to smoke cigarettes, in fact, when someone walks by me and smells like cigarettes it makes me sick. I can breathe better, smell better, and do a lot of things that I haven’t been able to do for years like run for 4 miles.
30+ Years of smoking ended 2 months ago
I have quit smoking about 3 times and it was the hardest thing I ever did. My husband never tried to quit and never wanted to. Two months ago, my husband and I walked into our first vapor store. Anyone that switches to these can quit: just ask my husband.
Amazing. That’s all I can say.
By the time I am 45, I will be healthy. Vaping probably is going to save my life. And it tastes better than cigarettes. I can’t see how the benefits (to a smoker) couldn’t outweigh the measly risks of vaping.
Smoked for 16 years
It’s only two weeks but all bad things is gone. E-cigarettes saved my life, my marriage and my self respect….I will never go back to tobacco products ever again.
DONE 12:01 a.m. New Year’s Day 2015
I feel great and have no need to go back to cigarettes. No withdrawals and best part the flavors I’m vaping are wonderful. I feel it’s worth a try after smoking for over 23 years.
I never thought I’d be able to say I’m a non smoker!!!! So vape on and change your life forever. It’s exhilarating to be a non smoker and be able to take a deep breath and no longer be a slave to cigarettes!
What’s that smell?
I was smoking a pack of Camel Lights each day – sometimes more. Nothing worked to quit – the gum, the patch… and especially cold turkey. I would run out of breath just crawling in to my bed. Walking up the 4 steps to my home. Playing with the dog outside. Not any more! Since […]
Fifty years a smoker. Held my sister as she died from lung cancer. Even that didn’t make me quit. I tried hypnosis, the gum, the patch and every other quackery out there. Vaping did it. I was introduced to vaping last May and by October I was cigarette and nicotine free. I love the taste […]
Helped me quit even when I didn’t want to.
My dad quit smoking over a decade ago and HATED my smoking. He was up visiting me for Christmas and without telling me he looked up some of the vape shops in the area. He kept hinting at me visiting me one of them. We went to a really cool shop and I picked out […]
Vaping Saved My Life !
I am a consumer of electronic cigarettes aka vaper, a primary stakeholder in this process. Regulations have advantages and then the negatives. These particular regulations will cause me actual financial, physical and personal harm. Physically in 1998 I was diagnosed with COPD I tried every available method to quit smoking. Not one worked I still […]
I was to the point I couldn’t sleep for more than a couple of hours and would wake up gasping for air. I come from a long line of smokers and I really didn’t think I could quit without becoming socially nasty and gaining a bunch of weight. I started vaping 8 months ago and […]
People in the Vape industry!
I have been helping people in the Vape industry in all aspects including purchasing their bulk inventory and bringing more people into their stores. I’ve also helped with the financing of clean rooms so they can get into the juice making game! I would like to offer my services to everyone here who feels they […]
Please don’t take yet another damper on smokers. We have already lost our rights to smoke in public places. I think that in the privacy of your own home you should be allowed to drink and smoke as much as you want. Have switched to cigs after almost 50 years as a 2 pack a […]
My Life is Forever Changed for The Better!
I am a 49 year old female who was a 2 pack a day smoker for 35 years. I thought I would die of lung cancer like my dad-I was addicted to cigarettes. My son introduced me to vaping right before Christmas 2014. Vaping helped me wean myself off nicotine and I no longer smoke […]
Vaping Helped Me Quit.
This turned into a bit of a novel after reading back through it. For that I apologize, but I hope you enjoy. I’m 24 years old, and being that even before I was old enough to buy a pack of cigarettes (16-17 years old) I was smoking, I was on the road a lot, after […]
Vaping is the only nicotine alternative out there that helped me quit smoking
I smoked for 24 years. I’ve tried nicotine patches (actually had a nicotine overdose using those and DID NOT SMOKE while using them), nicotine gum, cold turkey…nothing worked for me. Vaping has. I’ve been smoke free for two months and have no desire to go back to smoking. I started out on 18mg ejuice and […]
My vaping testimonial
Vaping saved my life from tobacco. I was burning through nearly 2 pack a day at one point and after about 10 years of poisoning myself I decided it was time to quite. Closed-system devices didn’t cut it for me. It was when I picked up an open-system device and some e-liquid that I finally […]
I made the switch!
In 2010 I was smoking 3 packs a day plus 3-10 cigars on any given day. I had severe uncontrolled Asthma, had just been diagnosed with having COPD and was pretty much unable to walk my dog or go up stairs without gasping for air. I had been smoking for 37 years. Wanted to stop […]
Vaping worked for me when NOTHING else did…
My Name is Marcus Gunn, I am 43 years old and I started smoking when I was 12 years old. I was raised in a household where my Father, Grandfather, grandmother, uncles and aunt’s all smoked. Never really gave it a second thought as far as my health was concerned. As I became older and […]
I smoked 2 packs a day for 8 years. I was so addicted to everything about it and I loved smoking. I wasnt even able to quit during my pregnancies, I did cut back a significant amount but I could never fully quit. After trying everything from medication to the patch, I looked into vaping. […]
Why BigMoose vapes
I started raping a little over five and half years ago, how I got started it was a Sunday evening and I ran out of my inhalers for my asthma. Not one to go to the emergency room for the third time that week, my wife could started raping about two weeks prior using a […]
After 35 years, I have quit.
I began smoking at age 14. I started trying to quit at 25. I am now 56. I tried gum, patches, snuff, various pills, cold turkey, and other methods. Nothing worked. In 2009, six years ago this May, I got my first ecig. I threw away my cigarettes the next day, and never bought another. […]

I am a registered voter and a supporter of the Anti-Smoking Alliance and the Pink Lung Brigade. I was a smoker for over 30 years and at 45 years old after trying everything from willpower to all of the patches and pills I finally quit smoking. For the last 5 or 6 years I was […]
I quit smoking and I’m happy I did
I started smoking at 12 years old. I smoked for 21 years everyday 7 to 10 cigs. With the usage of E-cigs I was able to quit smoking in just two weeks. While I never tried anything else but cold turkey, I can tell you this was more effective than any other attempt that I […]

41 years of smoking and trying all the drugs and methods to stop smoking. Nothing worked until vaping came along. Coming up on 2 years of being smoke free now. I strongly believe we each need to tell others about success of vaping in our life in order that others will know, they too can […]

One year and counting
I have been vaping since October 2013 and not had or wanted a tobacco product since. I have found that there is much ignorance about ‘E-Cigs’, too many people believe that the vapor is smoke. I have been banned from vaping at work because the president of the company classifies E-Cigs as being the same […]
My name is William. I will be 47 years old in January 2015. I smoked 2 packs of cigarettes a day for 20+ years. I tried to quit 3 times using the patch. It never lasted more than 6 weeks. I would start getting stressed and soon had a smoke in my hand again. The […]
I quit smoking in 1997, my husband didn’t. As the years went by the smoke from his cigarettes really started bothering me, to the point that we could no longer spend much time together in the same room. My husband recently purchased a vaping system, and it has changed our lives. The vapor doesn’t bother […]
No more Big Tobacco

48 Years of smoking, 18 years of failed attempts to quit, quit first day with e-cig. Started smoking at age 12, daily smoker by age 16. After my second child I started trying to quit in earnest using most all of the “approved” methods. Cold turkey, gums, lozenges, Wellbutrin (Zyban), patches, all failed past one […]
Vaping now for 4 years. Semi-professional singer and voice-overs, my voice has improved tremendously! Additionally, I’m tobacco free, my lungs are clean, not out of breath, and started mixing my own juice. Huge advocate, having “converted” several people to vaping.

I quit and got my husband to quit, too!!!
I smoked ‘combustibles’ for 23 years as of March 2014, and though I had tried smoke-alikes–both the rechargeables and disposables–but the flavors were terrible and I wasn’t getting enough nicotine to feed the addiction. A friend took me to visit a vape shop and I purchased a bottle of liquid and some other goodies. That […]
Ecigs changed my life
I smoked KOOL’s for almost 40 years and had attempted quitting numerous times by various means. Only when I found Joye ego ecigs was I finally able to kick the cigarette habit. That was almost 4 years ago. I still vape all day every day but now I make my own juice with NO nicotine. […]
Freedom to Choose
Up to seven days ago, I was not free. I was a slave to my cigarette addiction. For over 30 years, I have fed this addiction with one brand of cigarettes, a pack a day. Seven days ago, I tried E cigarettes and within that first day, I smoked 80% fewer cigarettes. On day six, […]
Center of the Universe
I started swiping smokes from my elders at age 10 to “be cool like the grown-ups.” I had picked up the habit fully by fifteen. After forty years of smoking EVERYTHING, cigs, cigars, and pipes, I was wheedled by my sweetie to try vaping (her kid brother had made the trade from cigarettes to vaporizer […]
28 years smoking, vaping helped me quit in 1 month
I started smoking cigarettes when I was 14 years old. Tried to quit many times and was never successful. It wasnt the tobacco or nicotine that was neccessarily a problem, it was all the chemicals put in by cigarette companies to absorb and keep you hooked. I have now been vaping for 1 month and […]

I have no doubt that vaping saved my life
I’m 40 yrs old. I started experimenting with cigarettes when I was 12 or 13 yrs old. By the time I was 16 I had a pack and a half to two pack a day habit. I spent the next 20 plus yrs battleing chronic bronchitis, asthma, and regular bouts of pneumonia that led to […]

This is incredible
I will be 49 next week and have smoked since I was 19. (Minus 2 years pregnant) It started with studying late nights in college, then just “socially.” We all know where that ends up. A pack or more a day. I have wanted to quit for some time and tried Nicorette and cold turkey […]

On a Whim
As a smoker of 30+ years I had been noticing people with e-cigarettes and vaporizers. My local convinience store had n-joy throw away e-cigarettes on a special buy-one-get-one free special. On a whim I bought them in place of my regular, daily, pack of cigarettes. With in a day and a half I found I […]
20+ years of cigarettes, until I found My Vaporizer
I started smoking cigarettes daily at age 14. I was a one, to one and a half, pack a day smoker. After many failed attempts at quitting i found myself desperate. I tried the look alike ecigs for a short while, they tasted horrific and looked just like a cigarette. Not long after a new […]
an unexpected journey
I started vaping 4 yrs ago in july. Stuck with my ego style ecig for 3 years. It took me a couple of years to totally quit smoking, but I did it. I smoked 3 packs of marlboro a day, sometimes more, and I really didn’t quit for my health. Just couldn’t afford it. In […]
I’m a 30 year smoker of over a pack a day. I started stealing my parents cigarettes back in elementary school, and became daily smoker by the age of 15. Both my parents were heavy smokers and I watched them both pass away from smoking related illness (cancer), only a few short years apart from […]
I’m 23 years, and almost 4 years sober. Throughout my life, chemicals have been a REAL problem. For the last few years, my life has been greatly improved with the absence of drugs and alcohol, and the last lingering vestige of my struggle was my inability to quit smoking cigarettes. My dad, my grandpa, and […]
Hello all you folks over the pond. Don’t know if there is a British Vaping Association but there bloody well should be. I began smoking at 14 and at my tobacco addicted height, was chugging back 1.5 packs a day or 30 cigs a day. I smelt bad, could not taste a thing and had […]
Director of Shared Servies
I was a pack and a half a day smoker for 44 years. For twenty years I wanted desperately to quit and tried most every smoking secession method available. I tried nicotine patches and gum, hypnotism, non-invasive acupuncture, Zyban and Chantix without success. On March 8th of this year I bought my first electronic cigarette […]
Its a true Miracle
I’ve been smoking heavily for years and tried quitting so many times. Smoking made me depressed. Just the thought of waking up each day and inhaling something all day long that makes me ill and will likely cause my death really got to me. I was one of the first to try a e-cig back […]
42 1/2 yr. HEAVY smoker, who can no longer stand the taste of cigarettes.
When I bought my 1st e-cig, I did so for ONE reason; and, that reason ONLY: I’d gotten stuck in Wal-Mart one time too many, around “19 million screaching rug-rats, not a one of who’s parents was doing ANYTHING to even TRY to control them…” I had several sets of tubes in my ears as […]
Laughing again…all the way to the bank
Today marks 108 days without a cigarette (3,240 unsmoked tobacco cigs) for me. I had a horrible smokers cough that developed after my 30+ yr “social smoker” habit became a 1 1/2 pk a day habit. It kept me up at night and I got to where I couldn’t even laugh without feeling like I […]
quit smoking in one day
I was a smoker for 20 years, and never smoked a “light” cigarette. I just happened to wander into a Vapor store in my home town that was beside a mattress store my wife and I were at one night. I went in a got somewhat educated on what I should start with and walked […]
I subsidized Big Tobacco for 36 years. Like so many smokers (and I find this ironic in the present) I started as a child, with Marlboro 100s for the first 13 years, then rolling Top Tobacco (single mom here) for the last 23. I had no other health issues at my full check up in […]
A more than adequate alternative
When I first discovered e-cigarettes back in 2009 it was never about quitting, and to be honest I knew very little about the concept of harm reduction. It was the fact that here’s a gadget that makes what looks and feels like smoke, yet not being smoke. There was a WOW!! factor. Over time I […]
Been a real change for me
Hi. I still smoke, but the amount by which I do and my attitude towards cigarettes has changed enormously. I find I still smoke socially when offered but find myself vaping when my device is with me. Not a huge/smoker or vapour but it makes a massive difference to me that when I do have […]
Vaping Helped My family Kick the Habit!
I started smoking at age 15. I couldn’t go 5 minutes without one.

I spent roughly $100 a week on tobacco. I panicked when my […]

I am 51 years old and been smoking since I was 16. I was up to smoking 3 packs a day with COPD and using an inhaler 4 times a day. After 1 month of vaping no cigarettes and doctor says my lungs are the clearest they have been in 10 years.
Vaping changed my life
I was a pack a day smoker for 10 years, on and off for 15. My first cigarette was at 12 years old. I loved smoking, but not as much as I love vaping. I always knew the negative side effects of smoking, but I ignored them until I no longer could. My smokers cough, […]

Didn’t even use vaping as an atlernative and I still quit
I know my time intervals aren’t going to sound as amazing as most. But I’ve been smoking a pack to a pack and a half a day since I was 13, that’s 7 years. I tried e cigs before the term vaping was coined and it helped for a little while, but never helped me […]
3 years No Tobacco
I was a 30 year smoker of a pack a day until July 2011. I tried quitting 5 times through the use of Nicotine Gum, Nicotine Patch, Chantix, and cold turkey.

I tried a friend’s vapor & liked it. After that I started buying the disposable flavored ecigs with 700 puffs at the gas station in Aug 2013. I bought five different flavors & decided at $8 a pop I should get an electric vapor with refillable ejuice. I haven’t smoked tobacco since I bought my […]

I switched to vaping three years ago after smoking for 18 years. I had no business smoking, I broke my neck 15 years ago in a diving accident and received lung damage by inhaling polluted river water. When I smoked I was quick to lose breath and my lung volume was low. Every doctor I’ve […]

I started smoking cigarettes in an era when it was a social activity, then endured the many evolutions that turned smokers into pariahs. After trying almost every method to quit during over 40 years of smoking tobacco, I transitioned to electronic cigarettes three years ago. Vaping eliminated almost every negative aspect of smoking, while retaining […]
I wanted to take a minute and give my story; I was a smoker for over 25 years; 1.5 to 2 packs a day. I have tried everything to quit; numerous times; patch, gum, prescription drugs, support groups, and just plain old “cold turkey”; nothing worked. I tried a small vaporizer and it was OK; […]

Vaping has changed my life for the better. I started vaping one year ago. I decided to quit smoking regular cigarettes because it effected me playing basketball and trainning/boxing workout. Smoking regular cigarettes ruined my life. I gained more weight then I wanted too. I wasn’t motivated to do anything because I didnot have the […]
Sub-Ohm Vaping to Get Off of a Pipe
I smoked for about 5 years, cigarettes a good bit and a pipe almost daily by the time I quit. I had tried to quit a few times, but with no success, mainly because I enjoyed smoking. I knew it was bad for me, but I enjoyed it too much to want to just give […]
We the People!
I have been a smoker for 12 years, and have a minor prenatal heart disease. This combo is dangerous and has left me to try many alternatives to smoking. Nothing on the market has worked for me – I.e gum, patches, inhalers. One year ago I started using e-cigs it has helped me to lower […]

My family is why i started vaping
I started smoking when I was 14 (1998). And finally kicked the habit April 2, 2013. In that 15 year time span I tried: dropping down to ultra light cigs, giving myself only a certain number of cigs a day, chantix (scary stuff, stay away from this) nicotine gum and lozenges, and just going cold […]

I have been a long time tobacco user for twenty years. I had always enjoyed different products and learning about the history of tobacco and being exposed to tobacco culture. As a younger guy I never gave much thought to what dangers I was exposing myself to or what harm I may be doing to […]
Finally something that has helped me quit *all* of my tobacco use
I smoked half-a-pack to a pack a day for almost 14 years. I had attempted to quit on several occasions, but even when I had “quit” I would still sneak a cigarette or two every couple of days, or I would smoke a bowl of shisha in my hookah. After conversations with a few co-workers […]

two of my grandparents were stolen from me thanks to cigarettes.

my switch from smoking to vaping
I started smoking at the age of 10 years old and wasn’t without a pack by the age of 12. 25 years later i learned of whats called a personal vaporizer and tried it. It gave me everything a cigerette did except for the extra 3000+ chemicals that come with analogs. I now have not […]
Vaping has Changed My Life
First off, electronic cigarettes ARE NOT tobacco products. So to classify them as such is ridiculous. Not all e-liquid has nicotine. You can choose your nicotine level. And this ridiculous argument about appealing to kids, adults have tastebuds too. We like things that taste good. That is an extremely weak and ridiculous attack. If youre […]
My thoughts on vaping.
I’m the kind of guy that knows if I do enough work, have an interest or love, carefully think through and research it, any challenge life throws at me lends the possibility of learning to overcome the difficulties while basking in the rewards. It was that way in my professional life and various achievements and […]
Pack and a half smoker now quit
I’ve been a half and a pack smoker for around 14 years. Electronic cigarettes have let me quit. I am now able to breathe, smell, and taste things better. I started out with a non-tobacco flavor and have never decided to switch back to that awful taste.
E-Cigarettes DO Work!
I started smoking in 1975, at the tender age of not-quite-14. Throughout the last 39 years, I tried 4 times to quit smoking, with very little success: in 1984, a cold-turkey attempt lasted 3 months, before I could not stand the suffering another minute and started smoking again; in 1987, I became pregnant with my […]

My Vaping Experience
My experience is more rare than most. My interest lies with my career and job creation, more than vaping itself. I graduated from college in 2010. I started vaping in December 2009. After graduating, I moved from New York to North Carolina to pursue a career. I was unemployed for almost 6 months, searching 10 […]
Vaping saved my life
I smoked for 14 years. I tried so many different ways to quit over the past 5 years. Nothing worked, until I picked up my first eGo style kit. Im far more advanced into mechanical mods now, but I am also down to almost no nicotine and I don’t miss real cigarettes even a little
Vaping has saved my life
I grew up in house where both my parents smoked. I hated it, my clothes always smelled, and it was embarrassing to have friends over. When I was little I vowed I’d never smoke, but I ended up being a smoker despite that vow. I began smoking in the 8th grade, I started smoking heavily […]
I started smoking Newports at 15 years old. It was the cool thing to do. I never bought a pack then, just had one socially here and there. That turned into buying packs and before I know it, I smoked a pack a day. That was in 1995. Fast forward to Oct of 2013. I […]

Great alternative to traditional smoking
Vaping has been a great experience. The benefits compared to smoking are substantial and numerous. I can’t imagine switching back to smoking.
I started smoking at 18. Although I tried to quit on multiple occasions, by the time I was 30 I was up to 2 packs a day. I started vaping on April 2, 2011. That was the same day I put down cigarettes for good. E-cigarettes have saved my life & my health. Both my […]
Vaping saved me and my dads life.

Smoke free for 5 months
Just wanted to say that by regulating devices and allowing flavors, it should be apparent to everyone that this is a result of big tobacco lobbying efforts. It allows them to buy out manufacturers while still keeping what’s unique and marketable once they have control.
50 years of smoking 2 packs a day… multiple “cut back” attempts with nicotine gum and patch were unsuccessful. I never intended to totally quit smoking. Intended to continue smoking all my life, but just cut back somewhat. Then I did research on “e-cigarettes”, mainly through reading the E-cigarette Forum online. I skipped trying “cig-alikes” […]

Harassment or Public Health? Please understand that vaping is an amazing utilization of Harm Control. It appears the FDA would prefer an imposition of Abstinence, as opposed to Harm Control, by creating an application process so laborious that most small business will be force to close up shop. The FDA has presented no evidence that […]
No more cigarettes for me
I started smoking when I was right around 15 years old, 40 years later I was still smoking, nothing but nothing would help me quit. I tryed every single of the NRTs on the market, going back to smoking each time, I tryed cold turkey a few times over the years but went back to […]
