Hello, I was a pack a day smoker for over 13 years, I started at a very young age and was never able to kick it. My health was declining, I could no longer play with my daughter for long periods of time. I had enough. A few years ago, I made use of Health Canada’s Stop smoking program, they sent me patches, gun and a nicotine inhaler. Patches gave me rashes and nausea, so I had to stop those. Gum is not suitable for me, just did not work. The inhaler was so vile, it almost made me quit just using it. Same side effects as the patch. I Went back to smoking for another 3 years. Three years later, I put into google search for any new stop smoking methods. In the google ads sidebar, I found a company that sold electronic cigarettes and was intrigued. Ordered a starter kit and it arrived 4 days later with everything I needed. I picked up vaping to see what it was all about and if I experienced any side effects. The only side effect I noticed is that I no longer wanted to smoke a cigarette. I am not going to lie and say the next day I did not want one, I did, they have a hold on you. I fought myself for a week to stick with vaping, it helped keep me occupied and gave me the small amount of nicotine my mind said I required. It worked for me. I am now 2 months, 3 days and 15 hours without a cigarette. I can taste my food again, smell better, and most importantly; can play with my daughter until she gets tuckered out and not the other way around. I probably would still be smoking today if it was not for vaping, and the vaping community. There is no amount of money that would compare to the support of the community and the effect vaping has done on mine and my family’s lives. Thank you!
