As a smoker of 2 packs a day for 35+ yrs, I knew I HAD to stop! I’d had 2 heart attacks and lost my Father when he was 53 to a massive heart attack (3pk a day), my Sister when she was 58 (2 pk a day) and other close family members to smoking related illnesses. Like most people, I had tried the nicotine gum, patches, cold turkey etc., etc. to no avail. My wife told me about some of the women at work who had started vaping. I thought, this will never work for me, they probably only smoke a few cigs a day. Surely it couldn’t work for a 2pk a day smoker like myself! A few days later I stopped by a local vapor shop to check it out. The fellow was very friendly and patiently listened to my story. He answered all my questions and set me up with a Starter Kit and some juice. Still skeptical, I used my new device the rest of the day without another cigarette. Long story short, I have been tobacco free since that day in October 2012! My breathing, sense of smell and taste have been improved dramatically! Thank you AVA for all your efforts to keep Vaping a safe, legal and affordable option!
