    To quite smoking. My husband has to quit, and I thought it's only fair to him I do as well.
    We never really grow up, we only learn how to act in public

    Started so I could smoke inside and because I just wanted to try it. Gave it up because I never tried any good juices and only had ....ty chinese stuff. Came back to it a couple months ago and ended up quitting smoking unintentionally which is kind of amazing.

    I started vaping because I always Enjoyed Smoking and had no intentions to quit but was hating the side effects notorious to smoking,Coughing,Sinus problems,taste etc.i do not consider my self a Nic junkie as i can go extended periods without and not really bother me it was the hand to mouth motion holding something in my hand that i found Comfort in and Relaxing.So i found Ecigs and they Provide me with the same Comfort and i can choose what level nic i want and i do not get Any side effects except occasional Dry /Sore throat easily cured by drinking more water.

    I originally started vaping as a way to cut back my cigarette consumption. Mine is an "accidental" quit-after less than a week, cigarette smoke tasted so putrid that I couldn't stand it any more-taste or smell. So I happily embraced what I call my "puffer". I took the fact that I had completely stopped smoking cigarettes and ran with it.

    Health & money.

    after 44 years @ 2 ppd:
    - My lungs don't sound like a box if Rice Krispies.
    - I can taste & smell stuff that I didn't know tasted or smelled (not all good, but mostly).
    - My circulation has improved.
    - I can walk (even run, occasionally) a lot further & faster than I could 20 months ago.

    - In 20 months of vaping I have spent almost $3000. Sounds like a lot, but I have saved nearly $6000 compared to what I would have spent on tobacco cigarettes.

    I quit because I can't afford smoking anymore and I'd like to live to see my kids grow up.
