Karyyl Senior Systems Software Engineer Grandmother, vaper I’ve been a smoker for 35+ years. Beginning about 10 years after I began smoking, I started trying to quit. I have tried patches many times, cold turkey many times, wellbutrin, hypnosis, support groups and classes. The support-group method once worked for a 5-year period, but stress and family members who were smokers eventually got to me. No other methods have lasted more than a week. In recent years I’ve been wheezing and being afraid of strenuous exercise because I can get to where I can’t catch my breath. I was feeling hopeless because I really need the mental clarity I get from nicotine, the calmness I get from smoking, and the sense of reward, but my breathing was starting to get frightening. I told my daughter that I could tell I was going to be a smoker until I die. Probably prematurely. She suggested ƒ??Why don’t you just give up tar?ƒ? So more than a year ago I started investigating electronic cigarettes, and started trying them. After the first 9 months, I had cut from ~24 cigarettes a day to ~7, ACCIDENTALLY. My breathing has improved noticeably, but not super-significantly. I have stopped wheezing in bed at night. In order to get to that point, I had to experiment with many different flavors and devices, and keep up with device improvements. I do not believe I would be smoking less than 15 cigarettes a day if I were limited to the devices available even last year, or the flavors I tried first. I tried to quit smoking this January, and succeeded for a month before I fell back to 2-4 cigarettes a day. Technically, that makes me a ‘dual user’ ƒ?? but if the 2-4 I smoke a day is so importantly bad, why is not the 20 a day I DON’T smoke importantly good? I will continue trying to quit smoking, but for now, the WORST case is I smoke 4 in a day, the usual case is 2-3 in a day, and I have hope that repeated attempts or product improvements will finally let me stamp out smoking in my life entirely. I am not even remotely tempted to have a 5th cigarette in a day. This is a huge historic change for me. I spend most of my time not even slightly tempted. And I’m getting compliments on my skin, eyes, aroma, breathing, stamina, etc.
