Finally found something me and my mom can bond over

Me and my mom have never gotten along very well. We've always fought and couldn't bind over much. She's been a chain smoker since I was a kid and recently started trying to quit. I've been vaping for probably 8 months and she wanted to get into it and started to use mine and really liked it but wanted one of her own. She kept buying really cheap ones from vape shops and breaking them easily. So I ordered her a new one and I haven't seen her so happy in a long time. Finally we have something we can talk about and not fight over and im pretty happy about it. I didn't think this day would ever come.

Just thought I would share my story with you guys

I tried getting my mother into vaping and she wasnt too excited about it. I even bought a cheapish vape for her wich she hasn't used, not once have i seen her touch it. Shes been a chainsmoker for 2 decades now i should problably get myself mentally prepared for the worst.

I'm happy my mom's finally getting over smoking. My dad's an even worse chain smoker (pack and a half a day) and he just can't handle vapes. I've tried quite a few things with him and every time he just coughs so hard and won't try it anymore. He's even come to terms with the fact he probably wont make it past 60 and that it's gonna be the death of him. It's really sad to see.

Like pbusardo says a lot "Remeber when you first picked up the cigarette. It was not smooth and satisfying. You might have coughed your lungs out. But then you tried it again and got used to it. And gradually smoking became a part of your life. Give vaping at least that chance to get used to it."

When I tried vaping at first, I too coughed a lot. In fact I was a dual smoker for 2-3 weeks. But then I convinced myself that if I have managed to decrease the number of cigarettes in a couple of days, I can quit completely with vaping. I used to take usual smoking breaks, but I vaped whenever I craved for smoking.

Its been 2 years smoke free (except for a months fall back when I visited Singapore where vaping is strictly banned). I hope it gives you some reason to talk about

That's great, I want to get my mom something to get her off cigs too. What device did you pick?

she already had batteries that she liked and wanted to keep so I just bought her 2 Arymi Gilles and one for myself. Good tanks for the price and she loves it. Bought a couple extra glass replacements because she drunkenly cracks them often

That is awesome and hope you both keep up the good work.

Great story and thanks for sharing. Vaping is more than making your lungs feel better.

What a lovely story! That's awesome!

Same thing with my mom, but fortunately we’re a little bit closer. Got her to finally switch to a juul, now she’s rocking a mtl device which I setup for her.

What are her complaints?

Mostly the airflow, after filling it gets gurgling and the cap that you unscrew to fill sometimes gets stuck and its difficult to take off.

Try her on something like a T3S Clearomizer and ego battery.

She’s now using the berserker. But before that anything she used she would have a coughing fit. You know how it goes. Thankfully the juul got her to quit smoking and then she slowly transitioned off of that. I don’t know much about the drizzle but maybe a pod system could be best for her because of the simplicity.

That's awesome OP. When my old man was vaping it was the same scenario, except we always got along but he just isn't a man of many words, so it gave us a little something extra to talk about. Strange enough he got me vaping, he quit after 3 years and now he tries to tell me I need to quit lol...

level 1

Weirdly, both of my parents switched to vaping around 5 years ago. After watching them both kick the cigarette habit, I felt truly lame smoking Marlboro's while they used new high-tech shit lol.

My dad was able to stop vaping and has kicked the nicotine addiction all together. My mom and I still vape, which is cool.

I'm 30 btw, just want to make that clear since I feel like I sound like a little kid talking about mom and dad vaping LOL
