My wife and I had been addicted to cigarettes for over 30 years when one day we saw a kiosk in the local mall selling cigarettes. As we walked by we could not believe that people were allowed to smoke in the mall? But wait, we didn??t smell anything and we did not see smoke rising from the cigarettes. These people were using electronic cigarettes. Other people were walking by paying no attention to what was going on as they were not affected whatsoever. Then a woman walked up with her child in a stroller and started complaining about the smoking she saw and that it was rude and illegal. Acting on ignorance and what she thought she saw she notified security who pointed out that these people are not smoking and there was nothing that security could do but make note of her complaint. Well she just walked away shaking her head as she most likely could not understand the lack of action. And she certainly did not realize what was actually happening. My wife and I tried these devices at the kiosk and immediately purchased a ??starter kit?. Having failed miserably many, many times with patches, abstinence and gums, this device replaced a horrible product that kills. We were very excited at the possibility that our smoking cigarettes days may be behind us. Months of research on the internet and 2 years later we are cigarette free. No more coughing, no more offending smell, no more bronchitis with every cold, no more sinus infections. Sincerely, Jim B. Ex-smoker of cigarettes for 30 months and counting.
