    My daughter in tears crying over my smoking and not "wanting me to die". It was time.

    I started vaping because I was addicted to filtered cigars. My friend suddenly handed me disposables and was like "I got these free samples for you" and I gave em a shot, and OH MY GEE it's so fun being able to "smoke" inside! No more cold weather man XD And what's better is that it isn't smoking, it's vaping, it's odorless and doesn't stain your teeth or all the other terrible things those filtered cigars were doing to me.

    I am addicted to Nicotine, or at least I was. But that's not why I started vaping. I started vaping purely out of curiosity. I was a smoker who enjoyed smoking but wanted to see what all the fuss was about. I feel in love immediately and never smoked another analog.

    This is me to a T. I also started vaping for all those reasons, I so have to keep my hands busy. Vaping is such a great improvement over analogs. Also it is nicer that I have gotten a few people to start vaping instead of smoking and they have both gotten a few people to quite smoking also. The cycle continues

    I started vaping one month ago. It was curiosity mostly. One day after I started my 10 Backwoods grape flavor cigars a day started to taste bad. I have not smoked since then and do not feel any craving for those cigars, quite opposite in fact. The $$ saved is also important.

    I'm more addicted to the hand to mouth--- combined with the slow deep breathing. Have a High Stress Job, and when I thought about it, the deep slow breathing that smoking, and now vaping, provides ... it harkens back to the years I spent in sports where we used deep slow breathing to calm ourself down during stressful situations.

    I started vaping for many reasons
    1.) Cancer runs in my family - my sister lost her larynx to smoking at the age of 38. My grandfather also lost his larynx to smoking and died of cancer in his 70's.
    2.) I'm a singer - nuff said.
    3.) I wanted to be a better role model for my 6 yr old son.
    4.) My hubby of 12 years never smoked and hated the smell of smoke on my clothes/breath/hair.
    5.) I was beginning to develop breathing problems and asthma.
