    For newbies and those contemplating the switch to vaping

    After 45 years of smoking, the last 40 years at a carton a week, I looked at vaping as my last best chance of quitting smoking. I had tried most of the 'approved' quit smoking aids with little to no improvement of 'will power'. The black speckled phlegm I was coughing up and shortness of breath was an indication that it was seriously time to try quitting again.

    I saw a guy vaping a cigalike and asked a few questions that had me doing some more internet searching when I got home. I unfortunately believed a YouTuber proclaiming how great a particular brand of cigalike was and bought the overpriced under performing kit. I puffed like I was insane but I didn't light a smoke. It wasn't a 'free pass' to quitting but it sure made quitting tobacco a lot easier and it kept getting easier by just a little bit every day. After the first week tobacco free, deep down I knew I was going to make it without tobacco and as mentioned every day the cravings became that little bit easier to deal with.

    Fast forward, today I have a pack of cigarettes that I bought 3 years and 2 days ago. It is still wrapped in the factory cellophane. I keep that pack as a reminder of who is the boss now after escaping 45 years of tobacco slavery. Today I don't even miss tobacco and believe I would feel pretty ill if I was silly enough to smoke a single cigarette.

    Having watched several friends I have encouraged to switch to vaping you can see who is trying this 'novelty item' and who is seriously trying to get tobacco out of their life. I sincerely hope that anyone who reads this is the latter.

    You will be very hard pressed to find a friendlier more helpful group of people than you have found on this forum. If you don't know something vape related, just ask and prepare for the flood of answers. I have been using 2 year old technology for the last year and a half and many people on this forum think it's an OK starter setup but it still works for me as Nicotine Replacement Therapy.

    I'm happy I don't smoke anymore. My lungs feel a hell of a lot better now too. I sincerely wish for you to enjoy all of the positive changes in your life that come with vaping compared to tobacco. With that, I'll just get off my soap box now.

    I echo Wolffy's comments.
    After four and a half years smoke free, I can say that vaping has saved my life and a lot of money. A pack a day adds up very fast...
    The best piece of advice I can give is to not get caught up in the chase for the latest and greatest hardware. Find something that works well and stick to it. Get off smoking first and then look at vaping as a hobby.
