I started smoking when I was 18 years old and continued to do so for the next almost 50 years. Over the years, I attempted to quit several times but eventually went back. I the summer of 2013, I was smoking 2 PAD and was becoming more and more concerned about my cigarette intake. I was worried that damage had already been done and this weighed heavily on my mind. And then, I discovered vaping. To make a long story short, within a few days of beginning to vape, my cig intake had dropped from 40 cigs a day to 2/day. And then one morning, I forgot to pick up my after breakfast cig. That was September 9, 2913 and I haven’t had a cigarette since. Nor do I want one! Unquestionably, vaping has changed my life for the better. Not only has it effectively eliminated my dependence on cigarettes it has also introduced me to a world I never new existed. For both reasons, I am grateful. I would urge anyone trying to give up cigarettes to give vaping an honest try. It has worked for thousands of people, me included, and it could work for you. NEVER take my new lease on life away!
