I was smoking traditional tobacco cigarettes for 6 years one pack a day of Newport 100s before I discovered a smoking alternative. It was not until my older siste r had her first child I seriously thought about quitting. She did not want me to wreak of cigarettes around my niece or in her house, her husband pointed me to into electronic cigarettes. I was very skeptical at first thinking it was only a blu or something similar. Well when I finally decided to fly down to Dallas to see them he took me to a local vapor shop. It was incredible! In Milwaukee we had nothing like it yet. But it was basically a lounge/bar. There juices everywhere to sample. This was when I bought my first ecig’ the ego c twist, and I loved it, granted he charged us 100$ for just 2 twist batteries which I now know was waaaaY over priced but I should have done more research. Anyways I finished the pack I had with me, and spent the next two weeks smoke free. Unfortunatelky when I came back to Milwaukee I did smoke and use the alternative at the same time. But literally only two cigs a day, until I heard that an uncle of mine, who was smoking two+ packs a day, has not had a CIG for 2 months. I couldn’t believe it . That was 4 months ago, and I havnot touched a traditional tobacco cigarettes since. I have that same ego twist and it still works great.
