I got addicted to smoking when I was 16, now I’m 35 and a father of a son.

Hey, I’m Joey and I got addicted to smoking when I was 16, now I’m 35 and a father of a son. So, I smoked for 18 years and by smoking, I mean I smoke heavy! After a while, I developed smoker’s cough and shortness of breath but I did not notice it at first. A few months later, my right lung collapsed and I spent 2 weeks in the hospital. The doctors also found early COPD, this was the reason it became harder and harder to breathe every passing day. I was on the hospital bed and my 5-year-old son was looking at me from the glass window. This was the day I promised myself that SMOKING NEEDS TO END!

I tried going Cold Turkey but that didn’t help much so, a friend of mine recommended me to buy e-cigarettes. Honestly, I did not know anything about vaping at that time. I looked through the internet, got some information and finally bought a vape kit. It was a starter kit and with that I got a tobacco flavoured e-juice.

No doubt it was hard to adjust to the new routine at first because the thought of cigarettes just doesn’t leave you that easy. My wife and the face of my son really helped me through this and now! Its been a complete year and I’m smoke-free. Vaping helped me never look back at smoking again.

Today, I can actually breathe. I can play with my son because now I have energy. When I smoked, I had seriously no energy. Smoking really sucked beauty out of my life, my family got affected because of this habit. My work got affected and above anything, my body suffered really bad. Those days in the hospital and the killing pain is something that I can not forget. I cannot be happier because now I’m smoke-free and I’m living my life.
