I am 29 and have been smoking for 14 years. I smoked about 2 packs a day, and was really beginning to have difficulty breathing. I would become easily winded and running was out of the question. I had tried quitting cold turkey, nicotine gum, patches, talking to someone. None of those things worked. I dont believe in taking medication that is potentially more damaging than the thing you are trying to stop, so all of the medications were out of the question. Recently an e-cigarette store opened in my city, and I decided to give it a shot. I got a starter set on Friday June 28, 2013, that weekend I only smoked 5 cigarettes in conjunction with the e-cig. I have not smoked a real cigarette since June 30th. I nolonger have any desire to smoke a real cigarette. The smell of someone smoking makes me feel sick to my stomach. Since I have stopped smoking cigarettes and only vape now, I can tell a drastic difference in my health. I feel much more energetic, I no longer hack up mucus in the mornings, to the point I vomit. I have started jogging and excersising again. My entire way of life has changed for the better. No of this would have been possible for me with out e-cigs. I only wish I had used them before.
