I was a smoker for 21 years and I spent the majority of those years wishing I wasn’t. I tried everything; cold-turkey, gums, lozenges, patches… nothing worked. Not for more than a couple days anyway. I came to hate being a smoker. I hated the way I smelled, I hated that I didn’t have the endurance to walk up a flight of stairs without getting winded, let alone play with my kids. I hated myself for ever smoking in the first place. I was 36 years old and I felt at least 60. But, like I said… nothing worked to get me off of cigarettes. That is until, in December 2011, when I was given an E-cigarette kit as a Christmas present from my kids. I haven’t smoked since. I’ve been smoke free for over 18 months and I’m loving life. Within weeks of quitting, my sense of smell and taste came back and my endurance started to improve. Now, months down the line, I can run and play with my kids and truly enjoy life. Not only can I enjoy spending time with my kids, but now I feel that I actually have a shot at enjoying spending time with my grand kids one day… something my father was never able to do, in part, because of smoking. I’ve also said goodbye to the chronic Migraine headaches that plagued my existence. I could babble on and on about how e-cigarettes have changed my life, how vastly superior they are to every NRT and quit-method I tried previously. The truth is there are probably no words that could express the profound impact they’ve made in my life or the impact my improved life will have on my kids. So I will end here, with the 5 words that sum it up best… Electronic Cigarettes Saved My Life.
