My name is Nancy and I live in Chicago with my wonderful husband John and our cute three year old daughter Melissa. I spent my whole life in Strawberry Point, Iowa until my husband job took him to Chicago. With a population under 2,000, there was plenty of space for one of my favorite pastimes, smoking. I was a 10 cigarette a day smoker and I loved to sneak outside and have a couple puffs, even after I had my baby. (I didn’t smoke during my pregnancy) Frankly, it was my happy time.
But moving to the big city presented some problems. We moved from a house on an acre of land to an apartment 15 floors up. Grabbing that smoke break would not be the easiest thing. So, I laid out the pros and cons and started vaping instead. Here are the 3 Big Reasons I switched to vaping.
As I alluded to before, it was just very convenient to grab a smoke. I was not about to smoke inside my apartment with my young daughter there and just getting out side was a real pain. Down the hall to the elevator, then taking the elevator down, going outside and braving the cold basically took 15-20 minutes when I usually take about 5 minutes to smoke. With vaping, I crack the window and blow the vapor out the window. Within seconds, the clouds dissipate and the smell of my grape flavored juice is not noticeable in the air.
I know that there is no definitive study done on vaping being healthier than smoking, but I do know one thing. When I was smoking, I would cough up a lot of brown and black phlegm each morning when I woke up. And when I walked or jogged, I would get winded really quick. When I started vaping, the brown and black phlegm started going away until it was not there anymore. And when I walked or jogged, I would not get tired as easy. Although there is no scientific proof, I am feeling much healthier and my family is not getting any of the second-hand smoke that is in my clothes and on my hands.
I hated the taste of cigarettes but loved getting the nicotine high. With vape, I can get the nicotine high and not the taste that I always dreaded. My personal favorite brand right now is Cyclops Vapor. It’s a company out of Alabama and they have been around for 8 years. They focus on bringing quality juices to market and it shows in their craftsmanship and their product. And most of all, it tastes Great. I usually buy my juices from https://www.smokingthings.com. Their prices are fair, and the delivery time is on point. Plus, it is much easier than taking a toddler to the vape shop.
