I don't know the exact date but it was early October this year that I finally quit. I started smoking when I was 12 and I'm 40 now... so that's 28 years of trashing my lungs. Doctors said I had chronic bronchitis it's a form of COPD. My wife hated my habit and it was killing me. I lied to my wife for a couple years about smoking but she still smelled it on me, I am still ashamed that I let my addiction cause me to lie about it. But man it's hard to stop smoking. I would smoke at work and whenever I could when my wife and daughter weren't around. Hating it the whole time, it's like I was a slave to those nasty, expensive little cigs.
I started talking to a guy at work about vaping, he had been smoke free for about a year and I just hammered him with questions about mech mods, regulated boxes, RDAs, tanks, batteries, juices and anything I could think of. Well he's a diy guy for juices and coils so I got plenty of good info. He pointed me to fastech for some affordable RDAs and stuff, so early October 2016 I placed my first order..... I didn't realize it was gonna be 2 F'n months to get my stuff lol. There was another guy I work with who I was talking to about getting started and he brought me a little istick set up with a tank on it and some juice. That was the day I quit. I had a pack of smokes in my car and I tried to smoke one a couple days later and it tasted like shit... I never want to smoke again.
I placed an order from perfect vape to get some nic,VG and flavors.... banana nut bread TFA blueberry extra TFA cheesecake gc crust TFA and sweetener. I got my flavors before I got my gear lol. I ordered an RX 2/3 from amazon and a fishbone RDA..... still waiting on fastech lol. The first guy I was talking with about vaping brought me a little boy RDA and I got my RX 2/3 so that was the first RDA I used and I really liked it, so I used that until I got my other stuff in.
Anyway I haven't smoked or lied to my wife since and it feels great. I breathe better, smell better and taste better. I love vaping and DIY this site kicks ass. Everyone is helpful and friendly... God bless y'all. I have three months smoke free and I'm not looking back. If I can do it anyone else that wants to can do it too.
Just go to a vape shop or order your stuff in your own country if you don't want to wait 6-8 weeks. Fastech is still cheap but you will wait
