I’ve smoked since I was 18, about a pack a day. I had tried quitting a few times..one was a bet, which I paid in 2 weeks after gaining 10 lbs. The second true attempt was cold turkey. I managed it for 3 months, but my husband smoked; and it was either start smoking again, or divorce. I heard about e-cigarettes and tried one of the first that came out. It did nothing for me. I didn’t like something that tasted like tobacco…I might as well have been smoking. Someone at work told me about a kit they had purchased with flavors. On my way home, I was talking to my husband and said I’m tired of paying outrageous prices to smoke and having to deal with the other effects that cigarettes have. That day, we went to a smoke shop he knew about and we got our first e-cigarettes with disposable cartridges. Within a week…we realized we didn’t need cigarettes. I found smoking peaceful. Now, I can get the nicotine and go through those peaceful motions of inhaling and blowing vapor. Sounds crazy, but I work in a very stressful job…it helps. My husband is a gadget-junkie and found different products that allowed more vapor and more flavor. Our house doesn’t smell like burnt tobacco, my car smells better, our sense of smell and taste is better. I can smell a burning cigarette now from 20 yards when I never noticed it before. My husband and I are very happy to vape.
