Vaping! You can stop smoking!

NicQuid - Premium Eliquid

Hey folks, Michelle here, and I wanted to share something with you today that has seriously changed my life for the better.  As a 25 year smoker who has attempted to quit hundreds of times, I finally found something that worked, Vaping!  I don't normally do product endorsements on my page, but this was such a positive experience for me, that I felt I had to share! Thanks to a wonderful friend and author, I was turned on to this e-cig idea, and would like to give D.R. Yurkas my thanks!  She has an ebook on the subject if you'd like to check it out I'll list that info below.

I'll be honest, I'd tried those e-cig you pick up in the store next to the real cigarettes, and they just didn't do it for me.  The setup Dawn recommended was completely different.  The truth is I enjoy the new vape kit more than I do smoking which was HUGE for me.  I'll share that setup with you, but before I do I want to talk a little more about it.  The biggest problem with nicotine patches and gums was it didn't stop the problem of needing something in my hands, so I always went back to the real thing again.  With vaping, I discovered I didn't need to fight off the urge to put something in my mouth, it allowed me that satisfaction.

This all started with a hospital scare on August 7th for me.  I was admitted to the  hospital after coming to the ER with shortness of breath.  Being diagnosed with COPD wasn't a big shock because I was a Respiratory Tech for seven years, and knew where my smoking habit would eventually lead. Even with that knowledge, I found it impossible to quit!  As a mom of five kids, being told this habit would eventually kill me was finally the wake-up call I needed to make a life changing decision.  I wanted to be there to see my children grow up and meet all my grandchildren some day!  The Hospital started me on Nicotine patches and I was MISERABLE!

Any long term smoker will tell you fighting off the craving for the need to smoke is like fighting your will to take the next breath.  No matter what you do, it's always in the back of your mind how great it would be just to take ONE MORE PUFF.  I've never done hard drugs, but I imagine smoking is right up there with other things almost impossible to quit on your own!  Vaping is different!  Before you roll your eyes, thinking I'm just blowing smoke up your backside, I encourage you to give the setup I'm using a try!  It might just be the difference YOU need to finally put down that pack of smokes!!!

I use the IStick with an Aerotank and use tobacco flavored eJuice. For me, this is about as close to smoking as you can get without doing the real thing.  There are so many flavors out there that you can try if tobacco isn't yours.  My personal suggestion as a long time ex-smoker though, is to start there until you get your craving for the next cig under control.  The iStick charges just like your phone, which makes it easy to use.  

The Aerotank is where your eJuice goes, and this is what mine looks like.  I am still using a Nicotine blend, but taking it down in steps until I'm completely nicotine free.  Whether or not you do that is completely up to you of course.  For me this is the solution I've been waiting for! I have friends that enjoy the pens better, but for me this choice was what I wanted.  

A huge question for me, and I'm sure for you as well, is vaping safer than smoking real cigarettes?

Angela Owens-Vallot This Thing We Do

Does love at first sight exist? Or is it only lust that can't possibly go anywhere? Those are the questions plaguing Alyssa. The day she walked into work and the new boss was there, something happened to Alyssa that she has never experienced before. Without even looking at her, Shade Alexander renders her speechless, time stops, and butterflies take flight in her stomach. 

Then Shade Alexander opens his mouth and speaks! Alyssa is no longer left speechless, she's pissed. The audacity! Who says those things?! People talk and it doesn't take long to learn that Shade is nothing more than a player, or is he? Alyssa has no desire to be the next notch on his bedpost and isn't willing to mess up her perfectly ordered life in order to find out if it's true. Then it happens, it took just one night, one dance, and one breathtaking kiss to knock her off her well balanced perch. 

Alyssa's backbone melts and she puts herself right in the middle of a game she has no hope of winning. Sheer determination has her immersing herself in a dangerous game hoping to win against all odds. Will Alyssa make it out unscathed or will Shade Alexander scorch her with the flames of a passion beyond anything she's experienced? Delving into a world of sexual rendezvous, secrecy, and scorching hot passion will Alyssa be able to beat Shade Alexander at his own game, or will she lose before she even begins?

I turn and see HIM, I realise he is the one watching me. I don’t know why I don’t feel creeped out, but I don’t. I put a towel around me and find myself walking towards him. I need to know who he is.
The closer I get to him the more of him I can see. He is in his swim shorts and no top. His body is so beautiful. All I can do is look into his eyes, they are the most beautiful blue colour. They are turquoise and are like pools that are drawing me in.

“Hi” I say, trying not to blush “I’m ..."

“Cassie” he says. “I know who you are, I was hoping to bump into you tonight. I’m Jordan,” he says with the biggest and brightest grin I’ve ever seen.

“Hi Jordan. Why were you hoping to bump into me?” I stupidly say to him. He’s making me lose control of myself. I feel really nervous and look down at the floor.

“Erm I wanted to get to know you. I feel like I’m drawn to you for some reason. I know that sounds stupid, but everywhere I look I can only see you.” He puts his finger under my chin and makes me look into his eyes. “Even when I have my eyes closed, all I can see is you. Sorry if that sounds a bit stalkerish.” He laughs, but I can see that he’s embarrassed about showing me his feelings.

I laugh with him because I really don’t know what to say. I have to try and say something though because he is looking at me with those mesmerising eyes. “Yeah it does sound a bit stalkerish,” I laugh. “But I’m flattered and yes, I have seen you around at school and I did wonder who you were too. So we are both a bit stalkerish.” We both start laughing.

“I’m going to go and dry off and get some more clothes on. Then maybe we can grab a drink,” I say really quickly so Jordan doesn’t see I’m waffling on a bit. He is making me nervous but I don’t want to stop talking to him. I turn and walk back into the house, towards the stairs to go upstairs to the bedroom to find my dress. I can feel him following me and I smile to myself. I am a little bit nervous though that I am in the house with him and my friends are outside, but he makes me feel safe.
“That’s sounds great, although I don’t mind if you don’t put anymore clothes on” he says grinning at me. He is following closely behind me, I was right.

“No, seriously I would feel better if I had more clothes on.” I laugh as I’m heading up the stairs.

Faye Hall - Mistress of Purity

Prue had seen something the night her father was murdered, something that would forever change her life...

She had seen something that would continue to haunt her and follow her wherever she went.

When she had married the Earl of Malloy, Prue had hoped to be able to hide under his name and at his out of town estate.  What she had not thought was to become his son's MISTRESS OF PURITY.

Gareth had sworn never to return to his father's estate, not to the life he had once thought to have there.

He had hoped that the man he had grown into was no longer hoping to find the love of a woman he knew could not possibly exist. What Gareth had not wanted was to find his comfort in the arms of his father's young wife... a woman he knew was hiding far more than just one secret from him...

Faye Hall is a published author of Historical Erotic Romance novels & e-books.

Faye's passion driven, mystery filled books are set in small townships of North Queensland, Australia during the late 1800's. Each of her novels bring something symbolically Australian to her readers, from Aboriginal herbal remedies, to certain gemstones naturally only found in this part of the world.

Each of her books tell of a passionate connection between the hero and heroine, surrounded and threatened by deceit, scandal, theft and sometimes even murder.

These romances swerve from the traditional romances as Faye aims to give her readers so much more intrigue, whilst also revealing the hidden histories of rural townships of North Queensland.

Faye finds her inspiration from the histories of not only the township she grew up in, but the many surrounding it. She also bases most of her characters on people she has met in her life.

Faye was able to live her own passion driven romance, marrying the love of her life after a whirlwind romance in 2013. Together they are raising their 9 children in a remote country town in northern Queensland, Australia.

Coming in October

Once there was a woman Seth had wanted to spend his forevers with, but he had been forced to leave Ella Matthis back in England. Out of desperation he agreed to order a mail order bride, hoping if nothing else to fill the void Ella had left in his heart.
When his mail order bride arrived at his cattle station in Bowen, he was well surprised to see the woman who was once his lover standing before him.

Ella Matthis had watched the man she loved sail away with another woman to a far off country. Her life crumbled around her from that moment she lost her home, her family, her social standing. Ella had nothing...

When she was asked to take her mistress's place as a mail order bride to Australia, Ella immediately accepted, hoping this new land would give her a freedom she had never known, and a new start so she could finally leave behind her past and those still hunting her.
Ella knew nothing of this man she was going to meet, nor did she care for she knew he could never replace the man she had already surrendered her heart to.

Though still bitter at each other, neither Seth nor Ella can ignore the burning passion that still lays smoldering just beneath the surface. Together they face cattle rustlers and scrub fires, poisoned and shot livestock, and police who constantly turn a blind eye.. each calamity drawing them closer and closer until finally they are again surrendering their desires to each other, their passions igniting a flame neither had felt before.
Only when those hunting Ella track her to Australia does her life again begin to unravel. Though Seth had sworn to protect her, he too soon finds it isn't only her past that has found them here in Bowen. He too has some explanations to make when Ella learns he still has a wife back in England.
