Started smoking at age 19. Smoked casually at first and then quickly became a vice I had a hard time quitting. I tried to quit cold turkey, used the patch, the nicoret gum, a tube which contained nicotine you inhale (forgot what it was called), working out in the morning and at night with the notion that smoking will be unpleasant after working out and during workouts. None of these worked long term. I was able to quit for a year but started again. Before I started ecigs I was smoking 2 packs a day. I initially tried ecigs to supplement my cigarets because cigs became so expensive. It only took 3 days for me to stop smoking completely. To my surprise my smokers cough went away. I’ve been using ecigs for roughly 4 years now. Once I tried to smoke a cigarette a work because I left my ecig at home but it tasted nasty and so I quickly killed that. I’ve never touched a cigarette since. This is THE ONLY device that worked out for me and I thank the inventor for it especially since I have a family history of cancer, even that fact did nothing to stop me from smoking. I feel better for having quit cigarets, I breath better and have more energy compared with when I used to smoke.
