Halo Customer Spotlight: Daryl from Louisiana

Halo Customer Spotlight: Daryl from Louisiana

Daryl’s 40-year smoking habit ended when she started vaping. Now, she is weaning herself off nicotine completely.

Halo: What made you start vaping?

Daryl: I’ve been smoking for 40 years and I’ve tried everything in the past 10 years to quit – Chantix, the patch, lozenges, gums, self-hypnosis, plastic tar and nicotine reduction filters, and gas station/drug store cig-a-likes and vape pens. Nothing worked because it either tasted awful, sometimes painful, or didn’t satisfy my cravings. Then I researched online and discovered Halo through great reviews of its vaping equipment and e-liquids. I purchased the G6 and the Triton along with a variety of e-liquids. They arrived on September 9, 2017 and I have not had a cigarette since, nor the desire for one.

Halo: How has vaping changed your life?

Daryl: Vaping has changed so many aspects of my life. I breathe more deeply, my throat doesn’t hurt, I can enjoy a belly laugh without coughing, I can vape indoors without worrying about the smell bothering anyone, I don’t have smoker’s breath or the scent of cigarettes in my hair or clothes, and I don’t feel the awful shame and guilt that I felt when I was smoking.

Halo: Do you vape nicotine containing products? If so, what level nicotine do you use?

Daryl: Yes. I started with 6mg in September, but also have purchased 3mg and 0mg since then. I hope to wean off nicotine entirely.

Halo: What flavors do you vape?

Daryl: Dessert, fruity, tobacco, and menthol.

Halo: What hobbies are you involved in now that you couldn’t do when you smoked cigarettes?

Daryl: I am not involved in new hobbies as a result of quitting cigarettes – it’s more a case of not having to stop what I am doing inside (writing, reading, knitting, etc.) to go outside to smoke.

Halo: What’s your favorite Halo flavor? Why?

Daryl: That’s hard because I’ve tried just about all of them and each is uniquely delicious and satisfying. Plus, the longer I’m away from cigarettes the more I can taste, so my taste keeps heightening and changing. For the moment, it’s Malibu for the perfect balance of tobacco, mint, and fruit flavors, light yet entirely satisfying.

Halo: What’s the number one thing you want people to know about vaping?

Daryl: You feel so much better, physically, psychologically, and emotionally than you do when you are smoking.

Halo: Where are you from?

Daryl: I’m originally from Westerly, RI. My Dad had a boat, so many of my fondest memories are of fishing, clamming, crabbing, and swimming in the nearby ponds and ocean. I live in Louisiana now but too far from the Gulf to enjoy the activities I loved in my youth. I miss that fun and the wonderful New England autumns, but I love the extended garden season here.

Halo: What is something unique about you?

Daryl: I’m told I have a great, infectious laugh. I can’t say what follows is unique in the world, but it summarizes my greatest strengths: I listen closely, try to help, work intensely, and love abundantly.

Halo: What’s your favorite quote?

Daryl: “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” -Albert Einstein

Halo: Who’s your hero?

Daryl: Barack Obama

Halo: Who’d play you in a movie of your life?

Daryl: Emma Watson

Halo: Cats or dogs?

Daryl: Both – and the rest of the animal kingdom.

Halo: Beach or mountains?

Daryl: Beach.

Halo: Pancakes or waffles?

Daryl: Pancakes
