I began smoking when I was 13 years old, sneaking them out from my dad’s packs. When I was 21 I decided to try to quit “cold turkey”. After gaining 50 lbs, I started right back up again. I then tried the patches, the gum, and Chantix to quit, all without success. At 24, vaping came to my area. On June 11th, 2012, I quit smoking. I started vaping. I instantly noticed a change in my health, I could BREATHE and not get winded during normal daily activities. I could smell things so much more intensely. Food tasted better (which for a foodie may or may not be a good thing). I used to get sick with bronchitis every year, and since I switched to vaping, I haven’t gotten sick. I haven’t had a traditional tobacco cigarette in over 3 years, and it feels like my whole life has changed because of it. I enjoy vaping the savory flavors, like gingerbread and vanillas and banana nut breads. I also like to vape the candy and sweet flavors during the summer. With vaping, I have been able to dial down my nicotine use, and am now using a low milligram compared to that of a cigarette. I will never go back to smoking, I am a vaper for life. Now, my entire family vapes, and we are all grateful for this product that changed our lives.
