Hi there, My name is Mark Christopher Reutens. I am 37 years of age and am from Malaysia. I started tobacco smoking since I was 18 years of age, my daily average was about 40-50 sticks. My main reason for trying out e-cigarettes is because I want to quit tobacco smoking completely and maintain a healthy life. I started using e-cigarettes on July 4th, 2013 and haven’t smoked a tobacco cigarette at all since then. When I started, I was on 12mg Nicotine. I vaped these e-juices for about 10 days. During these duration, my taste buds improved tremendously, my sense of smell was so sensitive that tobacco smoke stinks to me. I also noticed a slight weight loss but surprisingly my appetite increased, my guess is that I could taste much better. About 10 days into vaping, I realized that my body could not take the 12mg e-juices, so I went down to 9mg Nicotine e-juices. Surprisingly again, another 10 days went by and 9mg was too much for me to handle. I am currently on 6mg Nicotine. Hopefully it will go down till zero, then I can quit completely. When I started I was using the Sentinel mods with and iGo-L dripper tank, I still use it occasionally. Now I am using the iTaste SVD with the iClear 30 clearomizers. I stopped purchasing e-juices as I am doing it myself. It is much safer that way as I know how much exactly of the ingredients I put in. My lifestyle have changed completely since vaping and I don’t ever think I will ever go back to tobacco smoking. I have managed to persuade and encourage some of my smoker friends to try vaping and they too have not had a tobacco cigarette since. There has been only one negative impact on me which I think is to my own fault as I am feeling dry at the mouth most of the time but I guess that is simply because I don’t drink a lot of water. On a personal note, I think all countries governments should give these vaping a chance as it has the possibilities to save lives, instead of thinking about revenues from tobacco cigarettes.
