Matt’s Vaping Success Story

A few weeks ago we asked customers to share their vaping success stories and were soon flooded with personal narratives on how the freedom to vape has improved lives. 

Without further ado, this is Matt’s Vaping Success Story:

My name is Matt and I vape. I was a smoker for 20 years, and since I started vaping 4 months ago I’ve only had 1 cigarette, and I hated it. As a teen I fell prey to peer pressure and started smoking with my friends to be “cool.” As an adult I continued to smoke and my work only offered a break if you smoked, so my smoking intake increased.

I tried several cessation techniques including the gum and snuss, but neither worked for me. One day my mom said my son’s clothes smelled like smoke, and my wife who doesn’t smoke noticed the smell on me and our house, and I didn’t like that. I wanted to quit but I couldn’t.

I had tried an e-cigarette, several years ago when they were new on the market, but it didn’t do it for me. I continued smoking. I liked the idea of the e-cigarette, but it wasn’t  right for me. Curious about vaping, my wife visited a vape shop and brought me home an ego starter kit.

Coincidentally, on that same day, my lighter died. It must have been fate. I thought, “Ok, let’s give this a shot” and I haven’t looked back.  I started vaping at 12mg nicotine, then stepped done to 6mg, and now I’m at 3-0mg. I started with the ego starter kit and upgraded to a Evod 2 tank and now I have a Evic VT with rebuildable coils and a dripper.

I no longer get strong cravings, I can smell again. I actually find the act of smoking gross and dirty.  I enjoy vaping, I love that I have a new hobby to learn. I enjoy building coils, and trying different flavors is fun. I’m finding new flavors everyday and trying (and liking) ones I didn’t expect that I would. I finally get to put my love of science and technology to a practical use.

Vaping also helped me in a way I didn’t expect. I’m a shy person by nature and find it hard to talk to people, vaping also gives me a common ground to talk to people about, and I feel like I can be more socially outgoing now. Vaping has honestly changed not just my life but my family’s as well. I have recommended vaping to several of my co workers and my brother in-law and they’ve all joined the vape revolution!

We would like to sincerely thank Matt for taking the time to share why vaping is important to him. 

 Vape on!

    I also love the whole hobby and social side of vaping. It is great that people like us can join forums or meet other vapers and share ideas and stories. I think after 4 months in and only 1 cigarette you are going exceptionally well matt. Well done and keep at it.
