    I buddy of mine told me about it and I thought it would be a better alternative to smoking. I like smoking and had a hard time trying to give it up. Now, I'm loving all of the great flavors and not having to deal with the smoker's cough, the smell and everything else that goes along with analogs. Since I've started (beginning of April), I have gotten my mom, her friend, and several others vaping.

    I started vaping for health reasons. Dying from lung problems isn't my cup of tea. I knew I couldn't stop smoking so this was the safer alternative and I'm glad I did it. Quitting smoking never tasted so good....a quote from a vendor.

    Loved to smoke, just couldn't afford it anymore, so I went to the next best thing...glad I did. Vaping is sooooo much better on all levels, I have a new love, just hope i don't have to quit this one, the next best thing would be smoking, and we all know I can't afford it.

    I started vaping for breathing reasons, I could not continue to smoke but am addicted to cigarettes. I have a nervous chew my fingers thing I always have even as a child so it helps keep my hands occupied. I could not quit smoking it was the hand to mouth thing. I also needed to quit smoking in the house. I would have checked all boxes except, other nic and chewing tobacco.

    I was sick of smoking after 26 years or so and I have had my 9 year old son who has been riding my ..... to quit so I don't die. He loves me and is my inspiration and motivation!

    A few years ago my best friends brother who was 8 or 9 at the time said to me "you're gonna die 7 years before other people will" i asked why and he told me "because you smoke cigarettes". I almost cried. So whenever i would try to quit smoking that's the thought that kept me going for the first couple days but i always started back up. Once i heard about vaping i figure it'd be a way to still be able to smoke, which i love, but be healthy about it. The extra money is great and the flavors are even better.

    That hand to mouth thing is pretty strong, but mostly I quit smoking and began vaping to live longer/healthier for my daughter.
