Hi all well I am 55 nearly 56 years of age and I have been smoking the stinkies since me and a mate stole two of his old mans fags and had a puff at the back of his shed when we were about 12 .I was a 30 a day smoker for nearly all my time but as we all know time has a habit of catching up with you and your wicked ways . I have tried many times to get of the smokes from hypnotherapy to acupuncture and for me none worked ,I tried those magic tablets that screw with your head and after reading about suicdes I stopped taking them I figured smoking was better than taking my life if they affected me the wrong way and as it was my whole personality changed when I was taking them . At a recent point about 12 months ago I was a sick as a dog I was coughing all the time could walk only a short distance before being out of breath, stairs were a nightmare ,I was thinking about trying to have another fruitless attempt at giving them away and had packets of patches from my last attempt in 2006 still sitting in my bathroom cupboard along with those disgusting lozengers in different milligrams they say help you I think it is all bunkem myself they just gave me cronic indigestion. Anyway I saw a program or advert for an electric cigarette ,and I found out a coule of gusy were using them where I was working but undercover as you know what people are like "oh whats that stupid thing your puffing on " you know what I mean I'm sure ,I asked a couple of them where they got there e cigalikes form and went out and purchased one myself . I found the cost of refill cartridges very taxing as I had to drive about 30km to get replacements and that is if the guys shop was open which was hit or miss so I started to refill them with e juice and this was ok but I was being slugged 18 dollars for hangsen liquid .After a while I got tired of refilling these things as some would be good and some were woefull so I did a bit more searching and came upon A.V.F and signed on . The people there are very helpfull to newbies and pointed me in the right direction ,id been vaping for a while but still had a few ciggies as well which wasn't to good but at least I had cut down ,then I went to Thailand for a holiday for a month ,got to Singapore saw a carton of ciggis for 20.00 and yum yum I was like in a candy store cheap smokes yeahhhh. and that's when I fell of the wagon even though I had taken all my vaping gear with me by this time I had invested in eleaf I sticks and the like so I was doing ok . What an idiot all the time I spent trying to wean myself of the smokes gone ,I was back to smoking a packet a day and because they were so cheap who cares ,around 2.50 a packet some a bit more , my girl was not happy at all and I was banished out of her room to the end of the balcony to have my stinkies and was always told about how I smell of smoke but she didn't make a big fuss about it but I know she wanted me to stop as her brother and father both died from smoking related cancer . Anyway came home and was back to buying 3 packs of rollies a week and puffing my head off and then I started to weaze and cough and although I had the pain in my leg before going overseas but never saw anyone about it .When I go home one night from walking my dog I decided to go see the doc about this pain in the leg ,he sent me for blood tests and an ultrasound and discovered a 70% blockage in my left arterie .The first thing he said was you have to stop smoking or they will not operate on you and you will lose your leg in the end . Well that was enough for me ,thankfully I had some juice from my trip somewhat old but it will do until I can get some fresh stuff ,so I broke out the eleaf and my nautiluss and away I went ,then I ran out of coils so was using old burnt ones until I could get some new ones .Now I am set up very well and today I received my new smok treebox what a lovely looking piece of kit and haven't had a stinkie since I saw the doc .I see people smoking and want to tell them to stop and tell them about my story but I don't as that wouldn't be right to do each has to follow there own path like I did . Well that's about all for now but why do you call yourself the crispernator ? A long story short I am a fairly easy going person but one day an apprentice stuffed up a job and didn't give a stuff about what he had done wrong ,I served 12 years in the army and have what sometimes is called a sergeant majors voice somewhat loud and booming when I get upset .Anyway I snapped and the whole joinery stopped as they could not believe what was happening ,afterwards a mate walked up and said you are now known as the crispernator as it was crispy originally and it stuck for 4 years until I was made redundant Sorry if its a bit longwinded but that is my story chris.
