I am currently a student and retired from the US Navy after 25 years of service. I started experimenting with cigarettes when I was about eight years old (I would steal cigarettes from my Mother). By the time I was 11 or 12 I was considered a smoker by my friends and smoked a pack or more a week. At 14 I was up to a pack a day or more for the next 30 years. I tried to quit many times and I managed to quit smoking twice during the a fore mentioned 30 years once for 1 year, and a second time for 3 years. Both times I used a nicotine patch to assist me in the quitting process. Both times I fell off the non-smoking wagon due to stress in my life. I find from my personal experience that once a smoker always a smoker, and it only took smoking one traditional cigarette for me to be back to smoking a pack a day. This time I decided to try an e-cigarettes (I prefer to call it a personal vaporizer and consider myself a vapor not a smoker). I have been using my personal vaporizer for approximately 4 months now, and so far so good, it has been working for me. I have lost the craving for traditional cigarettes as long as I stay away from other smokers. I still have the craving for traditional cigarettes if I am around other smokers, but that was also the case when I quit the other two times as well. As for quality of life, my clothing car, and furniture no longer smell like smoke and cigarette tar. I do not have to use Afrin nasal spray three times a day to keep my nasal passages open to breathe thru my nose and my blood pressure is normally lower when I go to see the doctor. My family is very supportive and extremely happy that I have chosen to switch to personal vaporizer rather than smoking traditional cigarettes. Once people understand that I am using a personal vaporizer and not smoking a cigarette I am not looked at like a social misfit/second class citizen. Some are still freaked out no matter what I tell them because they see the vapor and assume it has to be bad, so I respect that and put it away. To summarize my experience so far, I feel better about myself, I breath better, my blood pleasure is lower, I do not smell like cigarettes and neither do my belongings, my family is happy, and most people do not treat me like an outcast (although some people still give me dirty looks because they see vapor and think I am smoking even though they don’t smell smoke).
