I smoked since I was 15 and am now 51. I did however have a few years in between where I would quit but then kept returning to cigarettes. I smoked Marlboro Reds and later Kool FK’s.
I started vaping a month ago and have not had a cigarette at all. I vape a 70vg/30pg mix at 6mg, then switched to 3mg and now ordered 0mg to mix. I was worrying about over vaping but I vape a eLeaf Pico Dual at 30 Watts, lowest setting for my atomizer of .05ohms and .03ohms respectively. I go through 10-12mls of juice a day but I have to say I feel great! I no longer stink and have to go outside to smoke. My wife love’s it, I have more energy and can breath better than ever before. I even stopped smoking marijuana because of the smoke. I no longer have a tight chest and cough my lungs out like I did from the cigarettes. Vaping may not be 100% as living is not either. I am more worried about the ingredients in food killing me than I am vaping. I am so thankful I took up the switch to vaping because I can now enjoy myself and watch a movie in my living room with my wife without going outside to smoke 3-4 times during the movie and telling her to pause it ! The after sex cigarette is now replaced by vaping without ever leaving our bedroom. I never have to wash my hands and rinse my mouth with mouthwash after vaping like I did with smoking because I stunk all the time. My clothes smell better, my walls are not yellow !! The list goes on and on….. I will never inhale smoke intentionally ever again ! I know that vaping is way better than smoking and I am living proof.
I get great pleasure hearing my fellow vapers sharing their stories and it encourages me that I am doing the right thing. I know I am doing the right thing; and no amount of scare tactics, the cries of big tobacco or the scare of the media or people who are mis-informed will ever change my mind. Vaping has literally extended my life in regards to the 7000 volatile cocktail that cigarettes afforded me. I am a vapor and I am proud to be a vapor.
