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 Pack of Cigarettes found there way back into my pocket. After another year or so, I came across an Ego style tank kit. It started off as a crutch, But once I learned about the upgrades I could make it became my long sought after, way out!! I upgraded my tank and found myself without a cigarette since. Without my vaporizer and the broad availability to customize my experience there is Absolutely NO WAY, I would have been able to give up Cigarettes. I have been able to reduce my nicotine intake from 26mg to virtually nothing,(between 2-6mg). I can breathe again, smell again, taste again. Vaping has forever changed my life in a positive way!!
