Hello, I started smoking when I was 16. It was only a few a week, but once I reached 18 I was smoking 3-4 packs a day. I was addicted to smoking and it was very difficult to even attempt to stop. I smoked up to the age of 27 and only stopped because I went to basic training. After my training I went right back to smoking. I ended up having a tonsillectomy when I was 30 because I was getting strep throat at least once a month. All due to smoking, but that did not stop me there. I continued smoking until the age of 33 when I decided I had to stop. I gained weight and found a new habit…chewing. I substituted smoking 2-3 packs a day for 12 cans of chew a week. I continued to chew even though I was having issues with soreness of gums, bleeding gums, and blisters. My wife brought me a e-cig home one day to try. I done some research behind e-cigs and decided I would try it. I used the e-cig for two days and I threw the rest of my chew in the trash. Since I went to vaping my teeth and gums have gotten better. The spit bottles are no longer laying around which makes the wife a lot happier. I do feel it was only a matter of time before I went back to smoking but the vape has kept me from wanting any. I feel no cravings and do not feel the need to chew. Now, with my family history of cancer and high blood pressure I was going to be doomed if I kept smoking, but now I do not have to worry about that. Vaping saved my life, and while it is no great story, I do believe vaping saved me. I am a strong activist for vapors! Vape on my friends and keep fighting a good fight!
