July of 2012 my wife approached me with her desire to stop smoking. My wife asked me to do it with her for support and I agreed. A target date to start Chantix was set for September 1st. I’ve tried countless times and thought this was only a good idea. Mid August I made a doctors appointment to get my prescription for Chantix. I came home from the appointment and started Chantix right away. I had to stop Chantix 2 1/2 days later. It made me sick and very depressed. I repeatedly heard a radio commercial advertising e-cigs (very bad name which I feel makes the personal vaporizer guilty by name association to traditional cigarettes) and decided I was going to stop in their store. I had experimented in the past with personal vaporizer. I purchased a variable volt Lava Tube from Volcano but due to a lack of knowledge on how to use it, it was ineffective. I did not know how to fill the cartomizer correctly and it leaked and so on. The week before taking Chantix I was in Florida and I bought a disposable vaporizer for the car ride home. (Four kids in the car) It helped my craving for nicotine on the drive for a while. Disposables don’t last very long. My first visit to the local vape shop was an educational stop. The owner demonstrated how to use vaporizers. I purchased an Ego kit and dual coil tanks. Little did I know, I was given the freedom from traditional cigarettes. Over the course of 2-3 weeks I experimented with flavors, cartomizers, atomizers and every other little gadget. I thought it was so cool. I own a bar and didn’t have to go outside anymore. Late September 2012, I was outside my home smoking a cigarette when I looked at the cigarette and thought to myself, why the hell am I smoking this? It taste terrible and it’s going to kill me and after vaping inside prior, I didn’t need the cigarette. I didn’t quit overnight but I did it finally! With the instructions I was given at the vape shop and experimenting , I did it! 28 years of smoking and I finally did it. Even looking back now I am amazed that I moved away from cigarettes. Back then I was so amazed I began researching how to purchase electronic cigarettes wholesale to sell them out of my pub. What a journey it has brought me on. I am doing work for one of the manufactures. Proof reading instruction manuals, testing and naming products and I am now filming instruction videos which are going to be used in the manuals via QR codes and web links. I have introduced countless people to electronic vaporizers. I have a number of friends and family which have kicked the habit of smoking. While selling the vaporizers at my pub I have come across scores of people which successfully stopped smoking using vaporizers. As a retailer I am not suppose to tell people electronic vaporizers help people quit. From my personal experience I tell people they do and I tell them my story. I tell them the story of a little frail elderly lady customer I have and how she has lost one lung to smoking and how she plans on keeping her other lung while still using vaporizers.
