I smoked cigarettes for 35 years before switching. I had tried all the other methods to quit but kept falling back to cigarettes, vaping was the only way that stuck. I started at 18mg and have dropped it to roughly 1.5mg of nicotine now. I have also always used fruit and dessert flavors as tobacco flavors were just not enjoyable for me. I am now 52 years old and am in better health than at any other time in my adult life. There is zero doubt in my mind that had I not found vaping that I would still be smoking and more than likely, in terrible health. The same goes for my wife who switched as well.
