    Hi All, After falling off the wagon big time. My friend gave me a vape unit and omg!! This has been the best tool for me. Super highly recommend quitting this way. You have all the tools ready to go at a fraction of the cost. Been going strong for almost a month and havent looked back. No urge to smoke, no cravings and so happy. This works people. It really does!!
