I was a 2+ pack a day smoker for 23 years & really wasn’t thinking too much about quitting at the time (I’ve quit at least 15 times before – once for 4 1/2 years, another time for 2 years & the rest was a couple of months or a couple of days here & there). I have some health issues & it was imperative that I quit smoking, but I just enjoyed it too much! There are several people at work that recently started vaping & the idea intrigued me a little. I figured if I was taking care of the oral fixation thing, I just might be able to stay away from the smokes. I started asking some questions & doing some research online (reading reviews on different products, etc). I decided to order an e cigarette kit online which included 2 1000mAh E-Go C Twists and 2 3.5ml Vivi Nova tanks (based on the reviews). The kit also came with a charger, so it was everything I needed to get started except juice. The idea of tobacco flavored juice did not appeal to me, so I ordered a variety of fruity flavors to start. I liked some & others I did not. I had bought what I said would be my last carton of cigarettes the day I placed the order for my kit. I ended up quitting the analogs completely only 2 days after starting to vape! I gave 4 packs away to a guy at work out of that carton. I did start with 36mg of nic, but within 2 weeks was down to 12mg. The first few days was tough, but honestly I do not miss them at all now. My last cig was June 17th, 2013. I do vape pretty heavily & I’ve bought several different types of batteries, tanks, tips, juices, etc. since then. I have settled in now with equipment and flavors that I really like & am very happy about it. I really feel so much better now. I can breathe better, my smokers cough is gone, I have more energy and my voice is back (I used to sing in a few bands & haven’t been able to do that in years)! The e cig alternative to smoking has been an amazing transformation for me & I am so glad that I’ve made this positive life choice!
