I had smoked for about 17yrs and after about the first 8 yrs I have wanted to quit the cancer sticks (aka Gov't Crack). Quit, cold turkey (I don't get that term?) for a little over a year in 2005 and unfortunately started back up. I have tried to quit many times since to no avail. During that time I figured I was more addicted to the action of smoking more so than all the chemicals and whatnot that are in the cig's.
My wife had mentioned the e-cig's to me about 6months ago and I told her that I will again try to quit cold turkey and if I didn't I would then in fact look into the PV's more intently. Needless to say I failed at cold turkey, in 2 days, found this forum and did a lot of research and decided on the ego. I then found a shop in town where I can physically see this stuff and they set me up with a couple ego 650mah batt's and couple of DCT (dual coil tank) setups. Glad they did cause that setup has been convenient, east to use, and replicated smoking well enough for me. I smoked about 1 cig a day my first 4 days of vaping and that last cigarette literally left a bad taste in my mouth, seriously I took 3 drags and had to toss it. That was just over 4-5 weeks go. Maybe I will quit vaping one day maybe not (I will say it's not so much of a need anymore), but I thank my family for constantly being on my case about smoking.
