My finally quitting for good happened May 2, 2013. I was a 20 year, pack and a half a day, Marlboro smoker. I never thought I’d quit.. I never even intended to quit.. A couple of months prior, a lady I work with came out to the smoking area with her setup and I asked her about it.. she explained about the water vapor and that she was forced to do something because money was tight.. and that she had come to love it. She let me try it (pina colada)… The flavor was wonderful! A Brick and Mortar vaping store opened up around the corner from my place of work, and she told me that’s where she got her ecig. I drove by that ecig shop sign every day.. that stupid sign.. That sign that made me start thinking of quitting (I know.. odd that I was so stubborn about it!). That sign that said to me.. ok girl.. here is your way out.. I smile now when i see the sign. I thank the lady who let me try her ecig. I hug my boyfriend for not berating me for still smoking when he quit. And I breathe.. I breathe deep breaths because for the first time in a very long time.. it doesn’t hurt. 🙂 The Electronic Cigarette saved my life.
