I started smoking at about 14 years old. My mom died when I was 12, and I had been going through a hard time and fell into a different crowd of people, all of which smoked, drank and did drugs. Peer pressure got the best of me, since my confidence had plummeted to an all time low. I smoked for 9 years, anywhere from half to a full pack a day on most days. I loved smoking. I had no intentions of quitting at all. I enjoyed how it was social, I liked the motion of it, I liked doing it. Just obviously not what came with it. I was Christmas shopping for my hubby one day surfing the Web for ideas and I came across vape pens and they peeked my interest. I did some research and looked at reviews, looked into flavors and nicotine strengths etc. I decided to give it a try so I ordered my first kit. When i started using my vape, was the last day I ever touched a cigarette. It was the easiest, most stress free transition. It was unbelievably easy for me. It’s been over a year and a half and I’m still vaping, but iv gotten down to 3mg of nicotine! All iv noticed is positives by making the switch. I don’t have a smokers cough anymore and I don’t get winded as easily. My sense of smell and taste have improved. I just feel better overall. I’m so thrilled with how well they work iv become very passionate towards the industry and now work in a vape shop helping others to switch and quit smoking, and it’s been successful for so many others!
