I had been a heavy smoker. I started early 13ish! I had tried on numerous occasions to quit but never made it much past the four week mark! My health was suffering as was my bank book.Then a friend introduced me to an electronic cigarette- that was almost three years ago now and I have never looked back. I can breathe again taste & smell, and have loads more energy. Vaping can be quite in-expensive, all depends on you and what you want. I love vaping It helps me relax and no more smelly ashtrays smelly clothes bad breath and all that nasty stuff from the dreaded weed that is tobacco! I urge smokers to at the very least try an e-cig- it could save them money- it could save their lives!
