RE: Right you people I want
I wrote this for the CASAA testimonials earlier, feel free to crop it for length

I gave up smoking by accident, I had no intention of quitting, oh I knew it was bad for me, but I enjoyed what it did for me the way it broke up my day. I had tried to give up in the past, but it never lasted for long. I found that without the reason to do so I stopped taking the little breaks through the day that smoking naturally imparts. My stress levels went through the roof and it wasn’t long before I was reaching for the tobacco again. I smoked for 20 years, until I came across vaping. A friend at work had an ecig and my hairdresser told me all about hers whilst cutting my hair, but I still didn’t think it was really for me. Then one Saturday morning I was in the town centre and walked past a Vape shop with a deal on starter kits. It was £10 for a tank a battery and two juices. I decided to buy one for a giggle. I had no intention of quitting, but I thought it might be fun, and you never know it might help me cut down a little. I went into the shop and tried a few liquids. I expected to like the tobacco flavours but they were horrid and tasted nothing like a lit cigarette. So off I went with a basic vape pen and a bottle of cherry and another of honeydew melon. I smoked when I wanted a smoke and vaped when I wanted a vape, I wasn’t trying to quit so there was no pressure. By the Monday I had cut my cigarette consumption by three quarters, all without trying, vaping definitely seemed to suit me. Fast-forward 10 days and I am sitting at home on my day off, I have been on the computer all day doing some research and as it gets to about 11o’clock at night, I think “I could really fancy a fag before bed”. It was at that point I realised I hadn’t had a ciggie all day, and I HADN’T NOTICED!! That was the point at which I decided to make the switch complete. If vaping could satisfy me that much it was a no brainer to drop the fags and all the toxins and health implications that came with them. The final switch still wasn’t plain sailing, after all nicotine isn’t the only addictive chemical in cigarettes, but with a combination of the right nicotine strength and the right flavour I ditched the fags for good. That was the 21st of May 2014 and I haven’t had a ciggie since.

RE: Right you people I want
here is my attempt
please feel free to edit it I am not very good at writing stuff

I started smoking when I was 13 years old and carried on the habit for 30 years
I would have classed myself as a heavy smoker getting through 30 to 40 roll ups a day
I also put myself in the category of someone who would always smoke ,I enjoyed it and was well and truly addicted with no real intention of stopping smoking
A friend of mine started vaping about 3 months before me and when he upgraded he gave me his jacvapour cig alike kit
I was sceptical and thought the ecigs were a fad I honestly didn't expect it to keep me away from the cigs
I got through the day at work chuffing away on the cherry flavour and was surprised that i didn't want a cig
That night i went to the pub with the lads and knew at some point i would end up with a ciggy in my mouth
To my surprise i went all night cig free and it didn't bother me one bit
At that point i knew i had beaten tobacco
that was 20 months ago and i haven't touched tobacco since

if at first you don't succeed ,call it version 1.0

RE: Right you people I want
I've smoked for 40-odd years, I started when I was 13.
Got my first ecig - a 901 type cigalike. Tried it for a bit, found it more or less inadequate. So it went in the cupboard.
Got given a couple of Ego-T devices - the tanks were rubbish and tended to middle juice all over the place.
They got stuffed in the cupboard too.

Couple of years later I get a hefty pay cut - about £4000 a year in cost of living rises but not pay rises and a direct reduction of another £4000 a year when Recruitment and Retention payments were deemed illegal. Don't you just love the NHS?

Couldn't afford my 30 a day boxed stinky habit any more. Got a CE4 which was way better than the Ego tanks, albeit still crap.

Then shinyitis set in....

Then I discovered DIY juice - it probably helps that I used to be a chemist. And have a lot of fun playing with flavours.

I only really use the Sigelei 100W and a Paps clone with an Aqua 2 clone on it now.
