I’m 30, and I’ve been a smoker for 15 years. A student of mine was smoking a vaporizer each time I would have to stop to take a break and have a cigarette. The fact that he could stand there and not freak out because I was having a cigarette with him sold me on the idea that I too could quit. I purchased my e-Go T on August 1st 2013 and haven’t looked back since. I smoked the rest of the pack I had left for the next 3 days, and others had given me one or two cigarettes. However, I haven’t purchased a single cigarette since I started vaping. I’ve been vaping everywhere I can and talking to other smokers about it as well. I went to a Vikings game and stood outside with the smokers and didn’t have a craving. In fact, I had a few people ask me about the vaporizer and one even say that I should do that inside. Today was my first negative attention while in a Spencers in the Rosedale center. A manager came up and said We ask that you don’t smoke those in here. I obliged, but am putting together a better way of finding out just where I can and can’t vape. I’ve tried weening myself off of cigarettes and quitting cold turkey. Yet even when I quit for a while I always wanted to have a cigarette when around others that smoked. 3 days after I started vaping I couldn’t stand to be in my own vehicle. I had to completely clean it out and spray it with good smelling stuff. If anyone should like to know more about my story and how I started smoking, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
