My name is Leo D’Angelo, I currently live in Plano, TX. I have been a smoker on and off for 20 years. I smoked a pack to a pack and a half a day. In the past I have tried the patch, gum, welbutrin and Chantix to quit smoking. These products worked temporarily (a few weeks) for me. I was never able to completely quit smoking on any of these. Some of these have some nasty side effects that caused me to cease using them (Welbutrin and Chantix in particular). Recently a doctor recommended I try and electronic cigarette as a result of a dangerously high red blood cell count. She stated off the record that her patients have had better success with these than anything else. I have to admit I was skeptical but was willing to try anything to quit. I picked up my first electronic cigarette a few days later (a Joyetech ego). My main goal was to reduce the number of cigarettes I smoked daily, because I did not think it would help me quit. I started out with 18mg strength e-liquid. To my surprise I liked it and I have not smoked another cigarette since (not even one). That was three months ago. I believe the delivery method as well as the activity of doing something contributed a lot to my ability to stop smoking. Now when I walk by someone smoking the smell makes me want to gag. I have progressed with my vaping knowledge and am now using fully mechanical devices with RBA’s. I have reduced my nicotine dose from 18mg to 8mg. My red blood cell counts are now back to normal! I have more energy and no longer huff and puff doing simple physical activities. I also feel 100% better about my self both physically and mentally (not being able to quit smoking had a negative impact on my self esteem). I hope my story encourages someone else to try vaping as an alternative to smoking and provides further evidence that electronic cigarettes do indeed help people stop smoking (they certainly did for me). Sincerely, Leo A. D’Angelo
