So just over a year ago my mother passed away from cancer. I had smoked since I was around 13 or 14 on a regular basis. I smoked a pack to a pack and a half a day, I didn’t notice it but I smelled of awful smoke and chemicals daily. I couldn’t smell or taste hardly anything. The walls of my house are stained from tar. I had to throw away clothes and other things stained from tar. After seeing my mother go from working 40+ hours a week to being in an uber fragile day to day state in a matter of literally only 3 months, then passing. I decided I would do the same, I would give the money I work hard for to big tobacco in return to kill myself as well as others around me. I would not stink anymore, I would not absolutely destroy my lungs, my house, my possessions for this evil. I bought a Blu ecig, which as we all k m ow isn’t so great. I still smoked cigarettes, then I noticed a bottle of juice at a gas station but wasn’t sure and didn’t want to ask and sound dumb. Then one day at a friends house he pulls out a vision spinner. I was enthralled from the moment I saw it. A week later he upgraded and gave me the spinner. That was the last day I smoked a cigarette. Like I said in the beginning, that was just over a year ago. Now I have a sigeli 150 tc as well as some unregulated mods. Various tanks and rdas, just got a rta today and it’s on its way. As we speak I’m looking for a new mod. It’s easy to afford those things when you are not a slave to tobacco. It’s not just a healthier alternative for me anymore it’s a passion and I’m very very thankful for it. I just wish ppl would put money out if the equation for once and look at the good vaping does for so many ppl. The staggering amount of lives it has, and will continue to save if not destroyed by a few greedy mongers. Thank you.
