    I went back to college, first day I had to stop twice to catch my breath just crossing campus! It was killing me to do all the walking, I just wasn't able to breath. A fellow student came out to the break area with this new gadget and told us it was an electronic cigarette. Well bring a new gadget to a bunch of old geeks and you'll have a captive audience. Within the week all of us had one, and by the end of the first semester we were all able to cross the campus several times without having to stop and "catch our breath".

    Basically because it was the only method I could "grasp" as actually working.

    As long as I feel TH, I am happy.

    I actually thought vaping was a probably scam ...but figured what the heck, I'd try it. Thought that best case was that maybe it would help me cut down on smoking and save a bit of money, but didn't really expect it to work Yet, it worked beyond my wildest expectations. I haven't smoked for more than 18th months.

    I started vaping because:
    I'm nic addict.
    gums, lozanges, patches DID NOT work at all.
    I could not run from terminal A to terminal B to get a flight connection anymore
    I was "burning" $300 a month.

    By accident, by design (grand, not mine) I was in a bad place and hating cancer...happened upon here and ordered a kit, somehow it worked...
    And I am still happily surprised to have no desire to smoke!

    Sort of a combo for me, I was addicted to cigarettes and had a hard time quitting because of the hand to mouth motion. I really really wanted to get off of analogs, but the few times I had tried to quit before I bordered on becoming an axe murderer from the withdrawls (seriously, non-smoking friends of mine carried cigarettes just in case I got too bad) Vaping was a great way to solve all of those problems, plus you get the tasty bonus of alll the fun flavor options!

    I had been diagnosed with COPD and was told I had to quit..but what really did it was taking my grandkids on vacation a few years ago and being short of breath the whole trip......our last vacation I walked for miles and never even got tired.

    I could give up nicotine far easier than the physical act of smoking.
