My wife and I were both very addicted smokers. I smoked steadily since I was 15 years old. So, for me, that would have been 52 years! My wife started when she was 28, so for her, that would be almost 45 years. One night in November 2012, my wife’s daughter showed us a new way of smoking – she gave us each an ‘electronic’ cigarette, and, like they say the rest is history. We instantly loved it!! The flavor was so cool,and, after I looked it up online, completely safe! All you were exhaling was water vapor! We immediately went out and started buying our own e-cigs. And we both did the same thing – we gave all of our cartons of cigarettes away! We were both done completely with the old habit. The next thing we did was to pack away all the ash trays, and then we cleaned house – literally! We cleaned every surface and object in our mobile home that had any kind of nicotine stain on it. We now have a nice, clean smelling home. No foul odors!! And no tell-tale nicotine stains! Now for the rest of the rest of the story. I am a heart patient – a triple by-pass in 1994, in a VA hospital. My doctors were quite upset with me when I took up smoking again. They tried everything with me to get me to quit – the patches, et al, but nothing worked. I just could not quit smoking. My wife wound up in the hospital for a variety of reasons, and as soon as she walked out, back to the smokes!! My point with all of this is to show that we were both truly addicted to those horrible little white sticks!! I had previously purchased one of those little SpO2 meters which tells your pulse rate and the level of oxygen in your blood. I checked it against a regular hospital machine, and it was quite accurate. My oxygen level was always around 92 to 93. Six months after the Big Switch to e-cigs, my oxygen level returned to a healthy level of 98!! The numbers speak for themselves. Now I had absolute positive proof that these e-cigarettes were no joke – they really did what they were supposed to do. My wife’s oxygen levels are the same – 98! So we both had all the proof that switching to e-cigs was the right thing to do. And, they taste SO much better than cigarettes!! That is our story. These little things fulfill our nicotine craving – I use an 18 mg level and my wife uses a 12 mg, and we are both totally saisfied with that. So, for anyone reading this, this is the truth, every word of it! And, if you are currently a cigarette smoker, try it – you’ll love it!!
