I started smoking cigarettes when I was around 16 years old. My grandpa had passed away and I had other things that were causing stress in my life so I turned to tobacco products. I got myself up to about a pack a day at 18. I began noticing it was getting hard to breathe when I was working out and when I turned 19 I decided to try the ecig/vaping route. It worked immediately. I was able to quit smoking just one month after vaping. I just hit my one year mark analog free and I couldn’t be happier. My taste has returned. My terrible cough that I had in the morning is gone. And I can breathe so much easier. Vaping saved my life. I wasn’t a smoker for very long, but I know that if I hadn’t made the switch, my life would be completely different.
