I am now 18 years of age, and started smoking in 6th grade. I truly enjoyed smoking and did not think I would ever stop. Little did I know, later in my life I would develop lung problems such as chest pain, back pain and such. I bought an electronic cigarette to use on a car ride because my friend wouldn’t let me smoke in his car. I bought a Tornado-Tank from Totally Wicked, and instantly realized that I wanted to quit. I didn’t smoke for almost a week, but did finally break and had a cigarette, I lit it and it tasted horrid. I put it out immediately and haven’t touched one since. I have been smoke free for about three months, and can honestly say I have electronic cigarettes to thank for saving my life. I started with 18mg e-liquid, what most would say high, but progressively dropped down to 0mg, nicotine free. I have tried quitting numerous times before buying my e-liquid, but all failed. Maybe I went a few days without a cigarette, maybe a week, but never 3 months. I feel great, I finally got my lungs back, and have higher esteem since I made the switch. I never thought that I would have, or could have quit. But because of electronic cigarettes, I did.
