Vaping sucks so far? You didn't try hard enough!

Nobody EVER smoked their first cigarette and exclaimed, "Oooooh, that's DEE-LICIOUS!"

I'm willing to bet that most of us had a first experience smoking cigarettes that was quite the same...lots of coughing, wincing, and wondering why the heck we wanted anything to do with it.

The truth is, who knows why any of us started? But we did...and for whatever reason we toughed through it. We persevered to finally gain a tolerance for something that tasted horribly bad, that we forced ourselves to proclaim an enjoyment for, and that we knew was terrible for our health.

It's important to remember that the reasons to stick with vaping far outweigh (in importance) our reasons for having been so tenacious regarding becoming a smoker. Not liking it from jump is irrelevant. There are a myriad of devices, accessories, and juices that might end up delighting a person well beyond the point that a cigarette ever did.

Once a person decides that tobacco is just too foolishly dangerous to continue smoking, but still can't beat the nicotine addiction, one tends to suddenly care more about what alternatives one chooses.

The best parts of the vaping alternative is that it offers so much of what we come to want or need from smoking without a great deal of the evils. I'm certainly not billing vaping as harmless, but for many smokers it's the best chance they have of getting away from tobacco for good.

It provides the "hand-to-mouth" habit, the inhaling and exhaling of a "fog" of sorts, the throat-hit, and the nicotine to which we've become addicted. Most smoking cessation aids offer few or only one of these, and many people fail because of what they're missing.

You owe it to yourself to try again...and again...and again...just as you probably tried different brands of cigarettes until you ended up smoking a particular brand for many years.

Best of luck!
