This is a guest post written by Michelle, who loves writing, vaping, and testing new products. I was at a friend's birthday party at a posh restaurant in Buckhead in March of this year. Out of the corner of my eye I saw smoke. I couldn't believe it. I nudged one of my friends and said "Oh my goodness €¦look, she's smoking  in here!" Although I was a smoker, I was against smoking in public places. I didn't even smoke in my house. As it turns out, my friend's daughter was using an electronic cigarette. I instantly became curious. May I try? I immediately asked Kellye  if I could try it. She graciously handed over her blueberry e-cig  and I took a puff. I couldn't believe it. I was amazed and dumbfounded at the same time. It felt like I was smoking a real cigarette. I kept taking drags and knew without a shadow of a doubt I had found my answer. After smoking for over 30 years, and countless failed attempts with alternatives, I knew this was my ticket off the analog roller coaster. Divine intervention My friends claim to have asked me about trying e-cigs  months before that party. They told me that Kellye  was using them and that I should give them a go. I don't remember that conversation at all. Perhaps I subconsciously blocked it out. Apparently, I told them e-cigs  were useless, as I was defensive about my beloved habit. I did not even give it a second thought. That was before I saw Kellye  "smoking" her e-cig. I had never even seen one before hers. It must have been divine intervention. Ultimate Ultimatum Starter Kit Kellye  gave me a business card from the e-cig company she used. It was Vapor4Life. I feel fortunate to not have wasted money on an inferior product. I got the best from the very start. I placed my first order that same weekend. I was so excited and full of hope. While waiting for it to arrive, I researched electronic cigarettes, found the ECF V4L sub-forum, and patiently waited. I put down my last analog the day after getting my starter kit, and have never looked back. That was seven months ago. I haven't missed the real thing one bit, and don't think I ever will.
