Al's Story

Hi my name is Al.

I have now been smoke free for 11 years. 

I became smoke free by switching to vaping. 

Since quitting smoking for good I have been able to enjoy running without running out of breath easily as I did when I was a smoker.

Al's Full Quit Story

I am 55 years old.

I smoked for 24 years.

I have now been smoke free for exactly 11 years I rely on an open system vaping devices and 3-6mg custard flavoured eliquid.

I started smoking in the army at the age of 19 because everyone smoked but it quickly became a means to deal with the pressure of being in the military.

Having seen and been through a number of pretty scary situations, my mental health started to deteriorate and was diagnosed with PTSD and anxiety and had to leave the military but continued to smoke cigarettes until I found vaping 11 years ago.

I feel, no I know vaping has not only had a positive impact on my health, I have also been able to complete 2 marathons but has been the one constant in dealing with my mental health issues.

Without a doubt the bans will have a negative impact on my mental health as well as my physical well being.

Not being able to access nicotine vaping the way I know it and the way it helps me will be a major issue.

It has already caused me to have a severe mental breakdown to a point where I tried to take my own life a few months ago.

I know that I will go back to smoking if I can’t access vaping.
