I was a smoker for 4 years (I’m 21 now, I started when I was 17) until I bought a vape at the local shop last August. I enjoyed it much more than I thought I would, so when the time came for me to upgrade to a bigger, higher wattage kit, I decided to give my first kit to my dad. My father was a 30-35+ year, 2 pack a day smoker, and being a retired prison guard, he was very stubborn and hard headed. So when I got home, I walked up to him, slapped the little Gemini kit into his hand and I said “This is yours. It’s time to quit.” See this was more about my father than me. While I noticed the typical changes that most people experience when they quit (better breathing, sense of smell and taste returning, general health improvements, etc.), it was like night and day with my father. He was stubborn at first, but once he realized that he could vape inside when it was cold out, he started vaping like crazy. He vaped that Gemini kit until the battery nearly burnt out! (we ended up getting him an iTazte VTR after that) Now I come visit my parents and he’s talking to people without coughing, the shortness of breath was gone, he could actually taste his meals, even his demeanor was better. I’ve seen him happier than I have ever seen him in my entire life. The thing that makes his switch the most worthwhile is when I’m sitting on the couch late at night, and for two hours there’s nothing but the sound of the T.V. There’s no coughing, wheezing, he isn’t getting up to go out for a smoke. After 21 years of being used to my father being a smoker, now I have to become used to him being a non-smoker.
