I QUIT Smoking by VAPING. The DATE, My STORY

I started vaping in 2016 and quit with real cigarettes (i was around 20-25 daily) in one day. I really wanted to quit but i had no idea how and i had no idea what was vaping. Thanks to a friend I bought a q16, really basic kit and i moved from 20 cigs to 0 in one day vaping at 9 mg. After quitting and give my body time to heal after many years of smoke, i started doing cardio and I lost around 25-20 kg of weight. At the end of 2017 in Italy we got a huge taxation on nicotine, so i quitted using it both for saving money but also because i did not want to be a slave of it.

Currently I run 5 times at week 7-8 kms, when i was a smoker it was difficult ever do stairs. No more headcache, never out of breath, my clothes and skin does not smell bad. I still feel guilty for starting smoking when i was a teen and for not trying to quit and discover vaping before.

I keep vaping only for the passion and because i like it. I vape aroud 4ml of eliquid without nicotine daily in MTL. Never wanted to light a real cigarette again and i hate the smell of smoke.

Good morning “vaporent” friends…kkkk… I’m a newbie in the world of Vape, but the best thing I did was change the stinker for Vape. Since April 1, 2022, I started vaping and quit smoking. I started with a renew zero and nicsalt 50mg/ml, then I bought a Luxe II and an OXVA - Arbiter 28mm RTA Dual Coil. It’s been about 3 months since I started learning about the vape world… Building coils, ohm’s law, different types of atomizers, PODs, MODs, and then I discovered DIY, here in Brazil it’s not very widespread but I looked for foreign videos and found ELR. I fell in love with the art of developing your own recipes. I am no expert in this art but I believe that every day I learn more. Both with the tips I’m getting from many here and through trial and error. I hope I can help new mixers like me one day. And thank you in advance for the help I’ve had from some and for the help I’m still going to have! Hugs to all, stay with God! Peace and good clouds!!!

Well done at quitting and keeping tobacco free: It isn’t easy but partners, wallets, and your organs all appreciate it.

Also, advising others to be informed is something I love - That gains you a lot of credit in my book.

(Getting to 9am without a new nonsense to defuse is a miracle day for me).

Isn’t that an issue to flag in a PM when no other evidence is to hand?

It’s advertising. Too many signs of a bot. Join date and post date are pure AI signs.

It had two posts and AI has gotten so good then the advertisement bomb. Should have been flagged earlier but gave the benefit of the doubt. Will see if someone objects but haven’t seen AI post’s object yet.

After posting I spotted the collection of hidden posts.

At this rate, we need an entrance test. The age verification for Leisure Suit Larry springs to mind.

The system also brought it up so 9.9 times outta 10 when the systwm flags something is wrong.

If so, why are accounts not instantly flagged and made hidden pending a review?

It’s still a open forem. It’s easy to block the account (all posts) once established.

Thats a question for the people who built the program we use…It is what it is . I dont worry or question why something is what it is unless I can change it .
