I started smoking at about 12. I started vaping with inappropriate equipment and the wrong strength of e-juice, so it took me about ten days to quit. It has been four years since I had a cigarette. I started with 18mg of nicotine. I am now down to 6mg with hopes of some day quitting entirely. I am not rushing myself though. I have not gained any weight. I can smell better, breath better. I don’t stink like cigarettes anymore. I can be around people who smoke and the cigarettes just stink to me, I do not want one. E-cigarettes have been a blessing to me.
