    Just got my vapcig ydseertay. I have been an avid smoker since I was 17 and I am now 25. I successfully quit cold turkey for almost a year and a half, but when school and family issues became too much I fell back into the habit. A friend of mine recommended vapcigs so I decided to go for it. I am already finding that I would rather vape then smoke. I was a menthol smoker so I chose the menthol option, it's much more mint flavored than a menthol cigarette but I enjoy it because it feels fresher. Despite smoking for years I still hate the smell of it on my clothes and the after taste and vapcigs is refreshing, no after smell no after taste. I convinced my mom today, a smoker of 25+ years and she's excited to try hers out. I would recommend this product to anyone who is trying to quit. As smokers we know that it's not always about the nicotine, it's the actual motions and physical habit and this helps with the nicotine cravings and the physical habit. Try it for yourself!!!!
