I started smoking cigarettes when I was around 13 or so. Smoked for 20+ years, most of them at 2+ packs a day. I quit cold turkey and was off of them for 10 years or so. Like I'm sure has happened to many others, I thought to myself, I have this licked! I can have a smoke here and there with the guys. Before too long that turned into me buying cigarettes and back up to a pack a day or so. After a probably 4 of 5 years of that, I had to get off of those things again. I have an 8 year old son and although he's never seen me with a cigarette, I didn't want to let him see it because I was smoking at home (outside) a lot more than I had in the past. So after watching a ton of videos and other research, I bought my first mod on December 8th from a local shop (Vape Nova in Alexandria, VA). I knew I was paying a premium for everything, but I wanted the local guidance and was willing to pay for it. I got a Battlestar and a Cleito. The next day, I went back to talk and hang out for a while and ended up with a Valaryian as well. Anyway, so far so good. No more cigarettes! Cheers to everyone.
