I was a smoker for 18 years, I started when I was 18. I tried to quit smoking on several occasions, without luck. The longest time frame I was able to quit was a few months. I had a friend introduce me to E-cigarettes, I enjoyed his and the different flavors he was able to vape. I eventually went to my local vapor store to find out more information. I found out that using an E-cigarette is somewhat a healthier alternative to smoking, that it was cheaper to use E-cigarettes after the initial investment, and the different flavors available made it more appealing for me to switch. I made the switch and I love it. My mother has also switched to E-cigarettes, and she was a two pack a day smoker for over forty years.
