How long did you smoke? I smoked for nearly 19 years ranging between 1-2.5 packs a day, most of that time it was between a pack to a pack and a half a day. ? How long ago did you start using a smoke-free alternative? I quit smoking on March 27, 2013 5:00 PM CST ? Exactly what smoke-free product(s) do you use (for instance, disposable e-cigarettes, mods, snus; what nicotine strength), and if this changed over time, how has it changed? I use an electronic cigarette, started on 24mg of nicotine and occassionally will use 6 mg but it is mostly 0 mg of nicotine, I bought my electronic cigarette originally to see if it was just another gimick of quitting. ? Do you still smoke at all (and if so, how much have you cut down)? I exclusely used my electronic cigarette for about 5 days and a friend let me have one, and I nearly got sick and vomited, it was not pleasant at all, other than that, I have not had an analog cigarette since my initial purchase of the electronic cigarette. ? Did you both smoke and use the smoke-free product for a time before quitting smoking entirely (and if so, how long), or did you switch immediately? Or did you stop tobacco/nicotine entirely for a while and then start using a low-risk alternative? I quit cigarettes the moment I made the switch to the electronic cigarette. ? What methods (NRT, Chantix, counseling, etc.) did you use to try to quit smoking before switching to a smoke-free alternative? How long were you able to go without smoking using these other methods before starting again? I have tried nicotine patches and the gum,to be perfectly honest, most NRT products made me ill and I didn’t stay on them long at all. The Electronic cigarette gave me zero ill side effects that I can recall and i haven’t put it down yet. I tried going Cold Turkey a multitude of times. ? What changes in the quality of your life (both positive and negative) have you noticed since adopting the smoke-free alternative? I have less mood swings. I have cut down on my sugary food intake and have lost weight since I gave up regular cigarettes. I can walk farther, my sense of tase and smell are noticably better. I can breathe much easier in the mornings when I awake from sleep. I don’t stink of an ashtray anymore according to my children.
