I bought my first e-cigarette over three years ago. I had no intention of quitting smoking or even smoking less. I just wanted to try an e-cigarette. Over the course of two months, I grew to enjoy the experience of using my e-cigarette more so than smoking tobacco and my e-cigarette didn’t even work well or consistently. Once I figured out I preferred vapor over smoke, I bought a better performing device and I quit smoking. It was a painless transition. My health has improved dramatically since I quit smoking and started vaping. I haven’t smoked tobacco since January 7, 2011.
