I started smoking regularly when i was about 18 of years. at first I was a social smoker which then grew to three a day to 7 a day. I wouldn’t have considered my self a heavy smoker, but I could tell that it was taking a toll. With each puff it was more of a habit and questioning myself why i was doing this. It was through a friend of mine in college that put me in the direction of electronic cigarettes. At first i would have an occasion smoke probably 1 a day until i got used to the E-cigg. Until i was really committed i have cut down to probably 3 cigarettes a month usually whenever i drink, maybe its the tar or something. Ever since cutting down i have noticed that I don’t have a nasty taste in my mouth along with the smell of smoke. My parents were happy that i cut out the smoking out of my life but are still skeptical on the e-ciggs thinking that it is just as bad. My lungs are feeling great as they are not burning after a quick run in basketball. And i don’t feel as tired anymore. This is a great way as an alternative to smoking and would cause more damage if these were banned. It would also be unethical to deprive the people of free competition and alternatives that they see fit. Big companies are angered that these products are cutting into the profits. Regulation would be nice so we all know that there is a standard, but do not use this as a tool to block companies that have established themselves as quality companies in the E cigg world.
