Switch To A Smoke-Free Life
I started smoking in 1990 and through the years I had tried nicotine gum, patches, and even Chantix. I made it to week 3 of 4 and I could not believe all the side effects I was experiencing from taking this prescription. It made me completely unaware and out of touch. I felt that I couldn't make any decisions and felt worthless.
Fast forward to December of 2014, It was Christmas Eve and I was spending it with my family at my brother's in laws house. Their next door neighbor stopped by to wish everyone a Merry Christmas. I went outside to have a cigarette and the next thing I see is her joint me, except, she was using an Evod. She told me about her struggles of trying to quit cigarettes after 50 years of smoking and wanted to share the device that helped her quit cigarettes.
She actually had 2 devices, both similar, and asked me if I would I would like to try one. The draw was right along with what I was used to with cigarettes and started to really make me think about making a switch an ENDS device.
So, 25 days later on January 29th, 2015 I walked into a local B&M and told the owners that I wanted to make the switch to start a smoke-free life.
I still had half a pack of cigarettes left, after 45 minutes of being educated on the mechanics and liquids of my new device I went home, stepped on my left over cigarettes, and threw them in the trash.
Over the next 3 years and 161 days I continued to educate myself more and more about the vape industry and its products.
In the beginning I only used 1 flavor, tobacco menthol, and now I have an expanded variety of flavors as well as devices and tanks/ RTAs/RDAs, in even started making my own coils.
I became a member of several groups and eventually was approached by several manufacturers to start testing/reviewing vaping products.
Currently, I help to educate others who are wanting to make a switch to a smoke-free life as I did. And since I received products in the past, way too many to keep track, this has given me the opportunity to help those to start out and for those vapers that have fallen on difficult times, broken devices, lost jobs, etc.
I feel that I was blessed by being introduced to one person that would start my journey to a much healthier life which I turn is giving me the opportunity to pass along those same blessings to those who also want to switch to a smoke-free life.
Thank you for taking the time to read my story,
