    Almost 21 years, love the whole process too much, so glad I stumbled into vaping.
    I still have a pipe cupboard up the very top of the kitchen and you can smell it's contents when ever you get in the corner, thank god for will power.

    What will power? Apparently smokers who won't stop don't have any according to the ANTZ/Puritans.

    I have some now, I have an alternative to smoking so it makes it far easier to say no to tobacco.
    Perhaps I had a little all along, just not enough to quit.

    You wouldn't want to come across my will power in a dark alley but I just couldn't give up smoking. I could give up everything else except air and water without any trouble.

    A lady was walking the car park today with fag in hand asking for money. I was like yeah just ask me! Go on I dare you! Well my face must have said it all coz she veered the other way. I clouded up my vape and got in my car and drove away. The amount of money I've spent on smoking is outrageous. It was costing us $300 a week. OMG just crazy. Now I've calmed down & vapeing is costing next to nothing. I started when I was 12. Very sad. ​

    She probably needed the money to cover her tobacco costs. It is cruel that the poorest are suffering the most financially because of the outrageous taxes. I wonder how many children are going hungry to pay for tobacco. I wonder how much crime is being committed. I wouldn't be so sympathetic except I was desperate enough about tobacco that I would have eaten rice and vegetables and frozen in winter to keep bills down rather than give up tobacco, although I would always have put my son first. Thank you vaping. If there was any sense in the world the government would be handing out low cost but efficient vaping hardware.

    Well she was smoking taylor made... Now if she was smoking a rollie I might have felt a little different. However I know people who buy "chop chop" and sell packets of cigs and we all know where they came from. *sigh* anyways glad i'm out of it now..

    33 years, very scary when I just calculated. Lucky to have found vaping and just hope for obvious reasons it was not too late.
