I was a tobacco smoker for 30 years. During that time, I managed to quit several times only to start again, at one point, 18 months cold turkey. Late last year, I tried hypnosis as I could see and feel what this horrible habit was doing to my body. That lasted about two months. Eventually, I ran across a message board on a very high traffic football web site, in the random topic section, in there was a thread on electronic cigarettes. I managed to read almost all 400 posts on the subject and saw the satisfaction and enthusiasm of the somewhat new technology. I did quite a bit of research and read the success stories of how this helped people quit the nasty tobacco habit. I decided to find a vendor with something to at least get an idea of what would suit me best, personally and financially. I placed my order shortly after finding what I wanted. Once my order arrived, I ran through the manual and started using my new electronic device. Six weeks after I had my first experience with this, I haven’t touched a tobacco product since the first day I started using it. My breathing is much better when I go to the gym. I don’t smell like a dirty ash tray. I don’t get that look from fellow employees at work when I came back in from smoking when they get a whiff. I no longer wake up and start hacking. My wife and kids are happy that I no longer step outside after dinner/before bed and they even mentioned the smell was bothering them when I was smoking. I have zero negative effects from the electronic cigarette.
