I grew up in house where both my parents smoked. I hated it, my clothes always smelled, and it was embarrassing to have friends over. When I was little I vowed I’d never smoke, but I ended up being a smoker despite that vow. I began smoking in the 8th grade, I started smoking heavily at age 16. I’ve quit more times than I can remember, but I always went back. I started vaping in November 5th 2013. I have been cigarette free since November 12th 2013. Vaping has saved my life, and had allowed me to spend more time with my family. My husband is thrilled that I have finally quit cigarettes, and I no longer need to worry about the smell on my hands and clothes. I no longer have to worry about when I’ll get my next cigarette. I have converted my parents to vaping, and it has greatly improved their lives as well.
