After trying a variety of products to try and quit smoking- including nicotine gum and patches, I decided to try vaping. At that point it was more just to try and cut down the amount I was smoking, but I found the hobby aspect of it extremely enjoyable. As time went on I smoked less and less, and eventually stopped buying cigarettes. I have now been vaping exclusively for 2 months, and been a mixed user for 3 months before that. I was a smoker for almost 8 years, and am now very happy to be smoke free.
