I was a smoker for 26 years with the exception of 3 years between 2008 and 2011 when I used Chantix to quit. I started smoking cigarettes and switched to a pipe and cigars about 15 years ago. I enjoyed the flavors offered in both alternatives to cigarettes, but I kept inhaling the smoke from both. My health was not good in 2008 so I quit with the help and expense of Chantix but it didn??t last forever. I moved to a location where I am surrounded by smokers and picked the habit up again a couple of years back. The place I work went 100% smoke free last month and being a computer programmer surrounded by computer programmers the alternative to smoking cigars was e-cigarettes. I had used them already around my wife who is asthmatic. But the nicotine content wasn??t comparable to inhaling cigar smoke, several co workers had customizable vaporizers. I did some research and found a battery I liked and 24mg/ml e-juice that I intended to use at work. After using the device for a week I stopped buying cigars and haven??t smoked tobacco for almost two months.
