Hi, I started smoking when I was five years old. My mother gave me one thinking it would choke me and so on but it felt really GOOD to me. So from then on I was swiping smokes from folks until I was about ten. Then I graduated to stealing money to buy cartons for my Mom and I was seriously smoking at least 15 a day. At the ripe old age of 13 I was doing a solid pack a day or more and really only did not smoke more because of all the school and family stuff that got in the way. By the time I was 16 I was smoking 1 1/2 packs a day and had no qualms about letting anybody know that I was doing so including my parents because I was also working part time and using my own money to pay for my own addiction. When I got married at 23 years old I was smoking 2 packs a day and have ever since. Nice and steady. We had four children and I continued to smoke. My mother got cancer and had a long ugly fight with it before finally dying and I continued to smoke. I had a heart attack and several surgeries and I continued to smoke. A couple years ago I had a triple bypass and I smoked in the hospital in the bathroom because the bastards don’t let you smoke even in a private room. That is just wrong. Over the years I had tried patches and gum and support groups and all of that and just smoked the same two packs a day even while chewing the gum at a support group you know? And every time I quit I gained weight that then never left. Bad business that. So one day my son in law gets me a rebuildable e-cig and some juice as a present for my birthday. Pretty cool but it didn’t take as it irritated me and it didn’t satisfy me. It was because there wasn’t enough Vapor and because the juice was eating the plastic of the tank and actually hurting my/us. They should never have sold it to him knowing the tank was plastic. A bit later my own son who took the unit I didn’t want improved on it by getting a much better tank. Now when I tried that it was so much like smoking in everything but the flavor that I thought I would give that a try. So I did. But I also made sure I had a good amount of nicotine in the juice to satisfy that as well as the other smoking aspects of my addiction. I also bought like 15 different flavors including cigarette flavor which I hated and still haven’t used. I have not had a cigarette since Xmas of 2012! 🙂 I mean that all by itself is too cool and unbelievable. Yes at times it was very hard to say no to smoking but most of the time it wasn’t too bad. And on top of that I have been reducing the nicotine in my E-juice month by month until I am now down to between 0mg and 8mg working my way to ZERO all of the time. As the nicotine addiction is being reduced so are the times that I get these weird very strong urges to just have one and so forth. Smokers know what I am talking about. I believe I will be an actual ADDICT to cigarettes for the rest of my life. But now I know I have a way to support staying off them, a crutch if you will, to help me limp through. I also suspect based on my daily use of the Vapor that eventually I will stop using e-cigs too. But I will keep them around for sure, ready to go for a good long while just in case. I want you all to understand that I have not even mentioned the benefit of e-cigs as to how much cheaper it is. I got to where I can heavily Vape for a year for less that $400 which is less that one tenth of what smoking cost me. But to me what really matters is I have not coughed since a week after taking up e-cigs. Best and CHEERS! Gerard
