I have been a smoker for most of my life. Started in high school i am 49 now and a pack a day for most of those years, Started vaping three months ago without one cig since then, started out at high nic lvl 24mg at first but am down to 6mg in 3 months. I have done many other alternatives the patch, gum, cold turkey, lozenges, none lasted for me, Vaping has done what none of the others have !!!! I could go on and on about how much better i feel, but i think everyone here knows that already.
