About City Vapes

People I talk to often ask the question, “Why vaping?” Or, “Why vape?” The easiest answer I can give is a testimony. I am a reformed smoker of over 40 years. Vaping was my path to freedom from that unhealthy habit. When I was smoking cigarettes, every time I lit one up, I would think to myself, “I really need to quit this.” Knowing how bad they were, and knowing I should quit, was not enough though. Cigarettes were ‘in my head’ and I was convinced that I didn’t have the wherewithal within me to actually take on that battle.

When my nephew came to me one day with his personal vaporizer and had me take a “hit”, I realized instantly that this was something that could displace the nastiness of the cigarettes (the tar and literally thousands of other known nasties) and that I could then “wean” myself from the nicotine addiction… painlessly. While I was still researching vaping, my nephew gave me a personal vaporizer as a gift. Finishing my research, I was convinced to put cigarettes aside the next week in favor of giving vaping an honest shot.  Vaping gave me the victory I previously hadn’t thought possible and changed my life forever. I have not picked up another cigarette, and I have never looked back. Nor do I want to.

In a nutshell, that is our answer to the question, “Why vaping?” And, that is why we chose to build this business. Our primary goal is to offer an alternative toward a healthier life free from cigarettes.
