I joined the Navy in 1986. Two years before that I began to smoke cigarettes. It was very hard to quit smoking after long nights and days especially in a submarine. I tried all the pills and patches that our great Navy gave to me. I always said that people will know when I quit smoking because I didn’t want to advertise it. 20 years later after my retirement it was very hard for me to quit. Over 30 years had passed and I was in the same boat, smoking a pack a day and sometimes more.
One day my son Carlos arrived home with a Mechanical Mod. I tried the device, the flavor the vapor and the beauty of the device got my attention. I started researching everything about vaping. Wow! A lot of good information out there; I also researched any side effects and so far nothing solid comparing.
Well, my friends, thanks to my son who introduced me into Vaping, I have a new hobby and have been smoke free for over five months. I can Vape in my car; I can Vape around my friend without the nasty smell of combustion cigarettes. I’m running 6 to 10 miles a day. I used to sleep 3 to 4 hours after working 18, now I’m sleeping 6 and 7, no more chest pain or out of breath. Vaping is the future and the future is Now. Love that phrase from RiP Tripper and he is completely right. V/R Carlos Rivera-Maldonado U.S.Navy (RET)
