I started smoking when I was twelve years old. At the height of my smoking I was smoking almost 2 packs a day. I always told myself I would quit when I was 40. I tried many times starting in my 30s. I did manage to get down to a pack a day habit but I was still unhappy. My son became a smoker. My daughter is not but hated living with me due to the smell. When I turned 53 I decided I had to do something. I bought a popular cig a like kit from a local drug store, discovered that their Cherry flavor was very satisfying. That led me to a liitle bigger equipment and a variety of flavors from tobacco like flavors to candy flavors to popular drink flavors. I love it. I have not used a cigarette since I started and I am now going on a year and a half without tobacco. Smells are wonderful. Things smell great. My blood pressure went down as well as my actual nicotine use. I definitely credit vaping with all that. I’ve tried pills, patches, hypnotism, lozenges, and cessation classes in the past and this is the only one that works, works well and works without guilt. I am happy and I’m sure I will continue to be a happy vaper even if I drop all the way down to zero nicotine which is just a personal goal. Vaping is the best alternative to lighting up a cigarette that could have come along. I believe it is on the way to saving millions of lives. I believe it has saved mine.
