I started smoking beginning when I was 16, even though I was raised in a non smoking house. I kept telling myself for the next few years I’m not addicted I just smoke a few cigarettes a day, it’s no big deal. Turns out I was lying to myself and I was hooked I became a heavier and heavier smoker, up to a pack and a half a day. I had tried to quit several times, all the different methods and I did quit, for a time. Unfortunately after every method I would go crawling back to ciggarettes. By this time I’m 21 years old and I’m about to have my first child, stressed out beyond belief. I spend more time outside the hospital smoking than I did in the delivery room. It was after I realized I didn’t want to bring my son up around this, I didn’t want him to turn out the same and be doomed to my fate. It was after a lot of reasearch I found e-cig’s and vaping and decided to give it a try. I started out on a cig-a-like device with a tobacco flavored eliquid that eased my transition. I won’t go into my whole entire vaping journey since but, I will tell you this I have not touched a ciggarette for almost 3 years since I have made the change to vaping. I truely believe it is a life saver and I will defend that!
