I’ve smoked for 29 years and decided to try one of these “ecigs” a little over 2 years ago. My main reason was purely for convenience so I could use it in my home office. My home office is loaded with lots of expensive computer equipment that I don’t smoke around because it really limits the lifespan of the hardware and going down the stairs, out the door, got to be a bit of a drag. And on days when it was cold or rainy, which aren’t that many but still we get them, it was annoying. After being a dual use smoker/vaper for a few months I met someone who had an eGo battery and I decided to “upgrade”. It worked so much better than those cig-alikes and for some reason I stopped being a dual use smoker/vaper within a week or two. At some point I went out for a regular smoke and was disgusted by the smell and taste. Wondered how on earth I ever did that for 29 years and getting to understand what my wife meant with “it stinks”. Haven’t looked back since. Upgraded some more and really got into the hobby and activism side of vaping as a result but I feel much better and everyone else notices that too. Within a few months of vaping and not smoking I managed to walk uphill for 15 minutes without a problem, something I had not been able to do in the decades prior.
