I smoked for over 25 years and tried to quit many many times. I was up to about 2 pks a day. I used the gum, the lozenges nothing worked..until my family picked up a disposable ‘BlU’ e cig from the store and gave it to me. I truly could not believe how close to smoking the read thing it came. Amazing * And I was just so thrilled just so so thrilled it did. I bought more and went online researching and started with V2 kit and from there , I found ECF and learned about Ego and other similiar PVS and e liquids. It has been literally a life changing experience. My cough is gone..just gone* My father died of throat cancer. IF ONLY these was available for him oh how I wish they were. I know he would be so very happy to see I have quit smoking ‘burning tobacco leaves’. I know I am and so is my family. I can’t say enough about how fantastic e cigs are. There are not enough words* I have since helped family and friends and so happy I can do that for them and will continue to do that..Their loved ones are so happy that they don’t smoke tradional cigarettes any more . It means so much for so many..I see a huge difference in how I breath as well. There is nothing out there that compares to help one quit smoking. Nothing. I am so grateful my family bought me that first e-cig. So very grateful.
