My name is Jennifer Marques, and I am a vaper. I smoked for 10 years before I found vaping, I started vaping on February 10, 2011. My journey in vaping has been a rough but successful road. I started vaping with a 510 stick battery and thought at first that this was never going to work for me because of the urges for a cigarette had over powered my will to use the ecig. I moved up to a ego kit and found that I had less and less urges for a cigarette. When I smoked a cigarette after 2 days of using my ego, I was disgusted by the taste and the smell of it, to the point that it actually made my stomach churn. In the process of making the transition from smoking to vaping, I still smoked for about 2 weeks before I actually forced myself not to buy anymore cigarettes, because I knew if I had them I would smoke them instead of using my ecig. After I made the full transition, I found over the course of a few weeks that I was feeling better, I noticed that I wasn’t getting sick from Bronchitis, and other respiratory illnesses that had plagued me in the past, and I fully believe that I have vaping to thank for that. I used to get Bronchitis and Pneumonia faithfully like clockwork twice a year when I was smoking. I haven’t had either in 2 years! Before I found the world of vaping I tried Chantix to help me quit smoking and while it worked I was bothered by sleepless nights, horrible dreams when I did manage to sleep and very disturbing hallucinations during the days while I was at work or driving. I used Chantix for 2 months and decided that was enough, the side effects of that drug were to me worse than the carcinogens that were in the cigarettes, and I went back to smoking for another 3 years. I am proud to say that I have been analog free for 2 years 6 months, and 10 days, and I have never felt better. My breathing is better, I can walk up the stairs in my house now and not be gasping for breath when I get to the top. My house and my clothes no longer smell, I have no respiratory problems, I no longer have to rely on my inhaler to make sure I can take my next breath with no problems, I have barely had to use my inhaler since I began vaping 2 years ago. I no longer have to dish out hundreds of dollars to doctors and emergency rooms because I needed a certain medicine to open my airways. I see no negative effects that vaping can bring. I am very happy with the choice I made to throw away my cigarettes and pick up my ecig. I believe with all my being that it is one of the best choices I have ever made. I look forward to continuing my journey with vaping, and living a healthier life.
