How long did you smoke? 24 years. Started smoking at 16 out of curiosity over peer pressure. Parents and friends did not smoke but best friends parents did. How long ago did you start using a smoke-free alternative? Switched off of tobacco to smoke free e-cigarettes on January 15th 2011 Exactly what smoke-free product(s) do you use (for instance, disposable e-cigarettes, mods, snus; what nicotine strength), and if this changed over time, how has it changed? I started with 24mg e-liquid but within a month, cut down to 18mg. Remained at 18mg for about 3 months before working myself down to 6mg over a quarterly incremental process. I’ve since gone back up to 12 mg due to high stresses in life in order to remain smoke free. I started my journey on a 510 manual stick style battery and in about 6 months purchased a big battery mod and have remained on this since. I vape between 3.7-4.2v on all devices. Do you still smoke at all (and if so, how much have you cut down)? I have had the occasional cigarette in social settings or in settings where smoking is prevalent over the last 2.5 years but it sickened me to have more than a few. Did you both smoke and use the smoke-free product for a time before quitting smoking entirely (and if so, how long), or did you switch immediately? Or did you stop tobacco/nicotine entirely for a while and then start using a low-risk alternative? I quit overnight after buying my e-cigarette What methods (NRT, Chantix, counseling, etc.) did you use to try to quit smoking before switching to a smoke-free alternative? How long were you able to go without smoking using these other methods before starting again? I tried cold turkey, gums, patches, and chantix. Longest quit period was around 3 weeks. Was on the Chantix program 4 times and never made it more than 3 weeks. What changes in the quality of your life (both positive and negative) have you noticed since adopting the smoke-free alternative? Health wise, I no longer have a nagging morning cough, no nasal drainage, wheezing has disappeared, I can smell things I’ve never smelled before, I no longer smell like an ashtray and food tastes better. From a personal and professional standpoint, I’ve made more friends through the global vaping network than I’ve ever had. I’m also the founder of a statewide vaping organization that allows me to help hundreds of smokers statewide yearly find a better alternative to smoking.
