I started smoking at 16 because it was cool and made me all grown up .Even though I had the head spins in the beginning it did not deter me. Both my parents smoked Hallmark so they were easily accessible. I sneakily took them as a teenager for me and shared with my friends. When I started working I became a packet a day smoker. My husband was also a smoker he gave up cold turkey, I kept smoking. It did not matter who told me I should quit and why I was well and truly hooked. I did attempt throughout the years to quit but nothing worked and I gave up. My son was diagnosed with cancer at 14, doing great now! he begged me to quit he was worried I would get sick that makes me anxious even typing it. Unfortunately then smoking and I went hand in hand .I just could not stop, I did not stop. Even then. Anyway to cut a long story short I tried all methods to give up. Champix ,wow my mental health went from 100 to zero ,hypnotherapy, cold turkey (that was 1 day maybe tops) patches and it was suggested by my hypnotist I bury my smokes in the garden very symbolic Lol I dug them up resurrected later that day. I met a friend for coffee he had a vape pen. Laughed it looked funny I felt the whole concept was very weird but what the heck I will give it a go. So I stumbled into vaping by accident. My first vape pen was delivered and my friend gave me e liquid with nicotine until I ordered my own and from my very first vape success! Still can't believe a die hard smoker like me quit with an ecig after 36 yrs finally smoke free. I think it is some sort of miracle. Hail to the ecig. For over 4 yrs I have not smoked and have no desire to smoke. The best thing about vaping. No cough ,no flem, chest infections none. The smell , the cost gone and guys you know the rest of the benefit's of vaping. . The best thing for me was my mum hated me smoking it worried her a lot. Before she passed away last year she knew me as a non smoker and that was the best thing ever. My son also vapes now second best thing. When mum passed away I went through a dark time she was my best friend and I had some mental health which issues were triggered .I decided to stay home and care for my 3 yr old grandson. Best job ever ! but then I felt like I really need to do something as my mental health was back on an even keel. So yes why not sell ecigs not sure it was the brightest idea yet but I do know its what I love. Reading other forum member's journeys brought me back to mine and I am very proud to vape. Please excuse grammar or spelling guys I have not written much since what was it H.S.C back in the 70's. I still use a vape pen with my variable voltage battery simple but it's effective for me. I leave the big cloud's of vapor for my son.
