I started smoking over 20 years ago, until recently up to three packs a day. I have tried to quit smoking by using patches, gum, and Wellbutrin on many different occasions but found myself always thinking about my next pack of cigarettes and shortly thereafter going back to the real deal. The habit of smoking had such a grip on me I accepted that it would take a heart attack to break me from cigarette use, but even then I was not sure if I would stop smoking. I tried my first e-cig 4 or 5 years ago but it was just a novelty to me back then. A few months ago I stopped in at my usual cigarette retailer and was shown a new e-cig tank system by a cashier who had started vapeing and successfully quit smoking. She told me where she bought hers and I decided to try them again. After purchasing my new vape unit I still smoked for a couple of weeks but was using far fewer cigarettess. I researched a ton of info on vaping and decided to try some more advanced systems. I am now smoke free. I found that vapeing has satisfied and replaced my habitual routine of stopping by the cigarette retailer that was always on my mind before I started vaping, and I have reduced my nicotine levels, sometimes vapeing with a zero nicotine e-liquid. I feel better than I have in a long time, I can breathe easier, my chest feels relaxed and I don’t have my morning ritual of coughing and hacking when I was a smoking. I accept that Vapeing may or may not be a healthier alternative to other nicotine replacement products, but it is the only one that has worked for me and I have been able to quit smoking cigarettes which I have known to be deadly, now my family is second hand smoke free.
