I started smoking when I was twelve, and continued smoking (with some short breaks of quitting) until 5 months ago(20 years total) when I decided to give an electronic cigarette a try. I had my last cigarette two days after receiving my first personal vaporizer which was an eGo battery with a clearomizer. I’ve since moved on to an advanced vaporizer, and re-buildable atomizers but I still enjoy my first set up as well. I use 24mg nicotine solution and probably use about 2ml a day, it works for me, I don’t get cravings for cigarettes even when I’m around my old smoking triggers of other smokers or drinking. I had tried the patch before and it never really curbed the cravings. My breathing is better, I have sleep apnea and I believe even that has improved some. The most important thing to me is that I’m not exposing my daughter to smoke anymore. I never smoked inside the house, or in the car with her present, but now there’s no smoke for her to be exposed to period. I’m confident that I’ll never smoke again. I may try to lower my nicotine intake at some point, but for now I’m not smoking and that’s what is important to me. I truly believe that the advancements in electronic cigarettes, and the huge variety of choices in equipment and liquids could make traditional smoking a thing of the past. If we as a country are really worried about the health of our people, that should really be the goal.
