Smoked for 35 years. I’d given up for a few weeks several years ago, but really I just missed smoking to much. Apart from the little matter of killing you and making you ill and the expense, its a great hobby. I was out shopping, passed a stall selling VIP ecigs and letting people try them, tried one, thought ‘Thats not too bad’, bought a starter kit. Smoked 3 fags that weekend, none since. Been off fags for 90 days now. Feel much healthier, don’t cough, can ride my bike faster, snore less, don’t wake up feeling terrible. Yes I’m vaping up a storm. still addicted to nicotine, but I’m also addicted to caffeine and riding my bike up hills as fast as I can, but they don’t bother me, and neither does being a nicotine user. The ecigs are just nicer than stinkies, you don’t smell, cough or wake up feeling awful. You still get the little time out, the ritual, the chance to hang out with the smokers at work and the little kick of nicotine. After I few weeks I upgraded to an eRoll from Joyetech. Its one of the ones that you fill with juice, but its still as small as a real cig. Cheaper to run and you can get juices in different flavors, much better hit, more vapor and better taste.
