I have been a smoker since I was 17 years old (now 58). Went to small flavored cigars 3 years ago due to cost in tobacco. I started out trying the electronic cigs a few years ago that actually looked like a real cigarette and they were awful. The batteries didn’t last and I truly got no satisfaction. There were flavors but the flavors didn’t come through. The entire kit cost me almost $75.00 and it lasted maybe a month before it gave up the ghost. I was not happy. I didn’t wish to go to patches, gum or Chantix for a few people told me that it gave them very odd dreams plus, they couldn’t sleep. I got back in touch with a friend of mine who smoked too. She had started vaping a few months prior and had successfully stopped smoking. I tried her battery and liquid and thought – now I like this! So, I came in to the world of vaping. Purchased my first kit with 2 batteries, 2 cartomizers and 1 liquid. That ran me over $100 but I liked it! Unfortunately I put it down a couple of months into vaping for I was bored with the flavor. So my friend turned me on to a vapor shop online for liquids and other accessories. I ordered 3 flavors, new clearmizers and I was off and running again. I’ve been vaping for 8 months now and love it. I don’t vape unless it is 100% VG (no PG) and still have 18 nicotine. I have 7 batteries and countless numbers of clearmizers and liquids. You might say I really got in to it! LOL It helps that a new Vapor shop opened up right around the corner from where I live. I now purchase all of my liquids, batteries and clearmizers from this shop. Of course – I do their books too which truly helps. All of their liquids are 100% organic flavors, the nicotine is organic and they will custom make their flavors. Nothing is pre-made and they do have some unique flavors. My smoking is dramatically cut down (less then 1/2 pack per day) for I love the flavors in vaping so much. I still haven’t made the final cut but I am working on it. I do think there must be something else in cigs that is addicting beyond Nicotine. Another friend of mine – I turned her on to the world of vaping too and she agrees with that statement. Some people can come totally clean from smoking cigs to cutting down dramatically with vaping. I don’t cough like I used to. I can taste better, can smell better and don’t have to worry about where and when I vape. I vape at my desk (have an air cleaner on my desk though to please my boss)and have been able to vape in restaurants, movie theaters and other non-smoking areas. People don’t even realize what you are doing and your exhale contains nothing but vapor. With 100% PG and organic flavors, you have nothing harmful in your vapor. I pray that there will not be a negative outcome for vapors in the law. It is giving me my life back. I don’t stink of smoke anymore. I feel better. I love the flavor of it. I think what the bad part is, people who don’t smoke, have never smoked AND the government, they don’t truly know what it is and they are scared of it because of what the large tobacco companies did with cigarettes many eons ago. To me, vaping is a healthier lifestyle without using prescriptions drugs or patches/gum etc to stop smoking. Those alternatives are very expensive and vaping can be too but, it is fun and I enjoy it. I do not feel like I am harming my body anymore. I’ve talked to too many people who have very good outcomes when stopping smoking. Some have even weaned themselves off the nicotine in the liquids and vape for pleasure now. It is a new frontier out there…please don’t take it away from us.
