I started smoking Newports at 15 years old. It was the cool thing to do. I never bought a pack then, just had one socially here and there. That turned into buying packs and before I know it, I smoked a pack a day. That was in 1995. Fast forward to Oct of 2013. I had had enough enough of cigarettes but had no idea how to stop. I tried all the things my home state (NYS) had to offer. The patch, the gum, hypnosis, you name it I tried it. I tried an ecig and I wasn’t really sold on the taste at first but it kept the cravings at bay. It is now April 2014 and I haven’t had a cigarette since that day in Oct and I have no desire to go back. The ecig has not only helped me kill my 20 year expensive cigarette habit but I take in considerably less nicotine than before. I started ecigs using ejuice that was 24mg nicotine per ml. I am now using juice that is only 6mg/ml. That is a considerable drop and I play to kill the nic altogether. To say that vaping has changed my life would be an understatement.
