I started smoking when I was 12yrs. old and I smoked for 23 yrs. I tried to quit smoking cold turkey but that did not work and I continued to smoke. At the end 2012 I tried the patches to help me quit but that lasted one day cause I still wanted a cigarette so that was a fail and then March 3,2013 I went and bought a mini vivi nova e cigarette and strawberry 24mg e liquid to try and I never smoked a regular cigarette since. My 16 yr. old daughter begged me to quit smoking for yrs. and when I started the e cigarette she told me after 3 days that she was proud of me and it made my choice worth it all. I feel better since I chose the e cigarette, I don’t cough like crazy, I don’t smell like a ash tray, and most of all my family isn’t around the second hand smoke. I was paying around $124 a month for cigarettes and now I pay around $30 a month for my wicks and e liquid for my e cigarette. Vaping is the best and the healthiest choice I have made. When I get tired one flavor I can change to another where with cigarettes you cant it’s regular, lights or menthol and that’s your choices. I sure hope my story helps another person give up the cigarettes. Thank you for reading my story.
