Your daily dose of inspiration, from a Vapemate customer

Read about a customer's success story on our blog


Anyone who has tried to overcome a smoking habit has a story. It's no easy feat, and for those who succeed, getting rid of the cigarettes once and for all is a major milestone. There's no doubt your life will change after quitting smoking, but first you have to find the strategy that works for you. For many, that strategy has been vaping - there's no shortage of stories out there about people using ecigarettes to quit the traditional cancer sticks. 

One such story popped up recently on the review site Vape Guys UK. A reviewer on the site who goes by the name of Kevin gave insight into how he used vaping to get over his smoking habit. Kevin's story is tragic, as he found himself increasingly reliant on cigarettes following the death of his son. However, Kevin did manage to quit smoking after all, and he has vaping to thank for it. 

What makes us particularly proud about Kevin's story is that he used a Vapemate sample pack early in his journey to a smoke-free life. There's no doubt that many people feel intimidated by the vaping culture; it can seem very complex and confusing to an outsider. Our starter kits and sample packs are intended for people like Kevin who need some guidance on how to go about vaping.

Here's what Kevin had to say about his experience with Vapemate: 

"What helped me both addiction wise and financially is that Vape Mates sample packs are fantastic. You get 5 x 10ml bottles of E-lIquid for £9.99. I have a sweet tooth, their Chocolate Caramel E-Liquid is heaven on earth."

Congrats to you, Kevin, on improving your life through vaping.

I totally agree Elaine, and to perhaps help anyone else who is a hardened smoker and has tried just about everything else, I'd like to share this with anyone who may be interested. I have only just a week ago discovered an actually 'effective' way for me to quit the smoke. I have been smoking 20+ a day for about 35 years and have tried a variety of er.... 'approved' but very painful and totally unsettling methods, from cold turkey to the compact e-cig lookalikes. As to my horror I smoked around 50 in one day about a week ago, I was dragged screaming down to my local vape shop and after nervously explaining my plight, was knowledgeably and patiently kitted out with a very nice starter kit. It's a very compact and great mod, (40watt,) with a 2ml pyrex tank. I got three eliquids in the deal, and I chose one 12mg/ml and two 18mg/ml. It's a bit fiddly at first to get the vape just right, I found that a subsequent purchase of 0.8mg/ml far too early in my experimentation, left me wanting to smoke, so I simply topped up my tank with 18mg, and gave it a vape bashing for a while, sorted. Admittedly there is a fair bit more to learn with vape as there is with actual smoking, but it's not quantum physics... If you go talk to the folks that will give you advice, and maybe even let you try different setups, like me....you can buy what you need to allow you to realise that smoke has 40,000 chemicals, eliquid has up to three, (not including the vegetable glycol,) and because I have smoked just one a day for the past three days ....just to convince my brain that I 'do not' want a cigarette, I can thoroughly confirm it, actual smoke tastes totally horrible in comparison to vapour. I'm going to send a mail to my local EU rep, what are these guys thinking???

Please wait...
