i smoked tobacco cigarettes begining at the age of 17. I am now 62 years of age…Two years ago i smoked my last tobacco cigarette. while still using tobbacco. i attempted to stop smoking and quit tobacco cigarettes 4 different times. I attempted to quit by the use of NRT products. (the patch, nicotine gum and more)… after a number of weeks using Nrt products. I returned to tobacco smoking. i discovered that the NRT products did not work for me. and i used them as directed over weeks at a time. Each time i returned to smoking tobacco.. I was desperate to find an alternative that would work. After so many attempts at stopping tobacco use. i began to give up hope. Then in 2011 while just surfing the internet i came upon and ad for Electronic cigarettes. I found a plethora of sites and true life testimonials as to their effectiveness. So, i made a purchase then and there. Shortly after that, in 2011 i smoked my last tobacco cigarette. I am tobacco free up to this minute. The alternative that finally worked for me was the Electronic cigarette. not smokeless tobacco. or any other forms of tobacco (which i tried) or quit aids such as NRT products. Since beginning the use electronic cigarettes i notice a big difference in my overall health. My blood pressure has dropped, my breathing has greatly improved, and the lungs are now clear. All from using an alternative called the electronic cigarette…There is no change in this overall health improvement. it is my beleif that this alternative device (an e-cig mod) has added years to my life. And potential to do the same for millions more… i was a two pack a day smoker back in early 2011. i stopped tobacco use with the electronic cigarette in just three days. i did use tobacco cigarettes in those three days. But i stuck with the electronic cigarette and found it totaly replaced the tobacco cigarettes…. Totaly tobacco free now! Free from the combusted toxin filled tobacco cigarette. it was almost like a miracle.. Thank You all for your time in reading my testimonial. Robert-Ohio………………………. PS. if the electronic cigarette were to be so stricly regulated as well as the E-Liquid used in them to where it is not easily obtained. There is no doubt that i will most likely return to tobacco use if i had no access to the alternative i use now. Due to my past history of tobacco use.. and this is not what i want..
