I was a smoker for 17 years, My first eCig was in Dec 2012 and once i took my first puff on it, i never smoked a cigarette again. I have been a ‘vaper’ ever since. I started using an eGo style battery with 24mg nicotine. I have tried and enjoyed many different flavors of ‘eLiquid’. Starting with menthol and tobacco, as i tried other flavors, i quickly learned that I do not even enjoy the cigarette flavors. Iv used Desert ones like cakes and cookies, but have settled on Fruits. I have been lowering my nic since I started, and am now around 9mg. Iv used many different devices that all do the same basic thing, with differences in the pull (tight or open draw), and the heat (warm or cooler). Now I do not use ‘eGo’ size devices any longer, I enjoy things that fit in my hand better, Things that are closer to a mid sized flash light. And while I have tried devices that look like a cigarette, i do not enjoy them, and i do not want people to look at me, and think I’m SMOKING, because Im not. I noticed in just a few weeks of quitting smoking and starting vaping that my health has gotten better, I can breath easier, my nails had permeant browning (my understanding is lack of oxygen) and that has since cleared up. I smell better, and I realize how nasty smoke smells now. There is not one negative effect that has happened since my switch to a smoke-free alternative. Iv tried quitting smoking many since i had started. ‘Cold Turkey’, Patches, Gum, And I had even went the extra step and tried the drug Chantix. Nothing had helped more then a couple of day, patches made my itchy, gum gave me a headache, and Chantix was the worse.
