I started smoking when I was 16 years old, and within a few months I had quickly started a pack a day habit. Luckily (or unfortunately) I had a job and a person willing to supply me with smokes. This carried on until May of this year (2013 I’m now 19) when I heard from a friend about a vape shop in the city. I went there and quickly got set up with a battery, atomizer, and some 24mg E-liquid. From the day I got it I resolved not to smoke again and try to completely switch, so I threw out the last pack of cigarettes I had. For the first week I still wanted a cigarette, but after that I didn’t feel the need to have one again and managed to completely cut out tobacco use very quickly. I used to wake up and my chest would hurt a little until I had my first drag, and I don’t have that feeling anymore. For some reason I can now also go much longer before withdrawals set in (6-8 hours) and when they do set in they are nowhere near as intense as when I was smoking when they set in every 2 hours or so. Overall I just feel so much better now that I’ve switched, I don’t stink, I breathe like I did before I smoked, and my teeth are white again.
