I started smoking about 11/14 years ago, id buy a pack of smokes for some friends and also smoke a few, put it down for a few weeks, and pick another cigarette up. When I turned 18 I had a job and was never out of smoke’s. I felt my health diminish, and became obsessed with a culture based on antisocial behaviour. As soon as 2008 was over, I had lost my job, and was kicked out of my home. I quickly became homeless. Mistake after mistake was made and I was sleeping under a bridge. You’ve seen it before, if you smoke youve probably had a homeless individual ask you for a smoke, and if your answers no, see them rummage in a butt can. That was me for the last 5 years of my life. I’ve tried quitting about 7 times. I hated smoking, but thought so low of myself it didn’t matter. I could hardly breathe, I was sick on numerous occasions in a year, many more than normal. In my sporadic doctors appointments I was told to quit smoking all the time, because that’s why I was getting so sick. I was about 23 when I had my first e-cig given to me, I’ve decreased my nicotene intake, I’m no longer homeless and surrounded by chaos. I can breathe better than I can remember, and I’m employable. These aren’t direct results of my vaping experience, its what comes with the hard work and dedication I’ve strived to learn about everything with. It made me realize it was easy to Quit negative things, so I haven’t had a drink or toke in a year and a half.over all my life has significantly improved, I generally enjoy all well crafted liquids. The variety I think helped and is a good reason why I quit. Thanks to the industry, I’m no longer dependant on nicotene.
