I started smoking when I was 14. I enjoyed smoking. I tried many times to quit, but was always unsuccessful. The alternative methods like the gum, nicotine inhalers, patches, or prescriptions, never tackled the enjoyment I got from smoking. For me, I needed something that would…replace…my habit with something less harmful, and to me that is where all the other methods fell short. With the patch I had bad dreams. With the gum I wound up spitting it out because of the taste. I would always come full circle and buy another pack. 30. That’s how many cigarettes I put out per day. Even when the price went up. Even when my daughter was born. It did not matter. I still enjoyed it. But then… I tried my first e-cig. Man what a piece of junk. But I tell you it got the gears turning. I started looking them up. Found some great people in the community. Read a lot. And finally settled on my first mod. A variable voltage/variable wattage device with a good cartomizer tank on top. That was it. I had found the one thing that could get me to stop smoking. I now have a mechanical mod with a rebuildable atomizer. My wife is vaping on another mod that I picked up. And I have given my first good mod to a friend. At first the guys at work would laugh at me. But since I started, the one that laughed the most, is now a vaper himself, as well as four others. The health benefits that have occurred are pretty big ones. I have been asthmatic for most of my adult life, until now. I do not wheeze or get short of breath. I have not had an asthma attack since I stopped smoking. I have more energy and can sustain longer periods of exercise. I. Don’t. Stink. Ok, I know that last one was not a health benefit, but whatever. I like it. It doesn’t stink in my car anymore. It is fun to catch up on the latest things to try, and then experiment yourself, with different builds on your mods. Even mixing your own juice responsibly is fun. The thing is, this is something that you can tailor to your own personal preference. If you have questions ask someone. Check out YouTube. We are here to help. Keep calm and vape on!
