I’ve been smoking cigarettes since i was 12 years old back when I was still in Indonesia. there was no type of law for underage smoking over there. at the age of 14 I started to get really addicted to cigarettes. cigarettes has been a big part of my life before. I would buy 2-3 packs a day for my dad and I. at the age of 16 (I came back to America) I was still addicted to cigarettes.At night when my aunt and uncle went to sleep i would dig in their ashtrays and light up a cigarette even doe if its already really short,i would need a cigarette every 30 minutes. I started to breath heavily, I couldn’t as fast as before and my chest would really hurt if i fall. 3 months later, my cousin brought this smoking device and it was called a vape. She said that she is trying to stop smoking cigarettes with that device, so i asked her if i could borrow it too (I know it was wrong to be vaping underage but I vapid for a purpose not to look cool, and I could not even buy it because it is not marketed to minors). Believe it or not, after 4 months of borrowing her vape, I was not addicted to cigarettes again.I have been vaping for almost 2 years and I am proud. Now that I am 18, I want to share all my love to the vape community. Only a little note, for those minors that are vaping only to look cool and do these smoke tricks, please stop and wait because we all vapers cape for a reason, an important reason.
