43 year long, smelly, nasty death-wish love/hate affair with tobacco cigarettes is finally over! Started at 13 and loved / hated every moment. Never really tried to quit and resigned to a life-long (as shortened as it was going to be) habit. Bought my first kit (2 batteries & clearo’ tanks) for 2 reasons: 1) curiosity and, 2) expecting to save some money. Notice I don’t say anything about hoping to quit – that was never a part of my ‘plan’ (a word I don’t like to often use!). Just curious & a tightwad. Over the course of the next week I realized I was reaching for the vapor more & more. Reason: the flavor! One day I mentioned to the guy who sings baritone in my barbershop quartet (fellow smoker) that I’d only had 1/2 a cigarette that day. His response was simple: “why bother?” That was it – I was done!!! The simple question helped me realize I was continuing with those 1/2 – 2 tobacco-burners (t-burners) a day for no real reason. What came next was my self-identification changed… I now saw myself as an EX-smoker. Withdrawal symptoms? No cravings, no impulse to take just a quick hit, never got cranky (at least that *I* noticed)… nothing! I kept thinking I must be *cheating* somehow – it’s a universal RULE that quitting smoking has to be painful, mentally torturous, a life-altering experience burned deeply into the victim’s brain. Was it possible to quit smoking by “accident” and with no intent or effort? YES YES & YES!!! 99% safer for me, and the worst thing I can do to a bystander is make them hungry for cinnamon rolls & caramel coffee with the flavors I vape. My family & loved ones are ecstatic for my success & the prospect of me being around for a whole lot longer than had vaping / e-cigarettes been banned by the FDA & intrusive government regulation that would have kept these life-savers away from me. Oh yeah, and the quartet is a lot happier – I can hit a high F without 3 hours of warm-up! My life, my choice, and I will NEVER let the governments, American Lung Assc, American Cancer Society, or ANYONE take away my NEW LIFE!!!!
