In the past, whenever I would begin an attempt to quit smoking, I felt an overwhelming sense of saddness and fear. Yesterday, I went to a vape shop and tried various flavors. I settled on two with nicotene. I went to my car, took a few puffs, and knew immediately that I would never smoke another tobacco product again in my life. I’ve never felt so sure. I threw out a half-pack of marlboro lights. I’m so grateful for this alternative. I know that 95% of my smoking habit has been the ritual of smoking – not the addition to the chemicals in cigs. I love to take smoke breaks, inhale, relax…..finally, I can still enjoy the ritualistic aspects of smoking without the horrible side effects.
