My name is Mike Jacobson and I live in the northern part of Illinois in the town of Wauconda. I have been smoking cigarettes for over 32 years. I smoked a pack and a half a day. As I got older I had problems breathing, wheezed at night when I was trying to sleep, had shortness of breath and coughed up gobs of crap on a daily basis. I tried to quit many times by going cold turkey without any aids, by using Welibutrin medication, by using older e-cigs that did not deliver the vapor available currently, by using nicorette gum and by using the patch. None of these methods worked for me and although I knew I was jeopardizing my health I continued to smoke even after being diagnosed with chronic bronchitis.My Dad passed away a few years ago from lung cancer, yet I still continued to smoke. Then A valet person who parked my car one day talked me into trying his e-cigarette. I had my doubts because I had tried the older weaker e-cigarettes yaers before, and they did not quite have the performance I needed to actually quit smoking. He had an eVic (large battery) with a tank of juice and the taste and vapor that product (as well as others) produce was enough to satisfy my need to smoke. I was so excited I went out and got myself one the next morning. At first I smoked cigarettes and ‘vaped’ my electronic cigarette for about a week. I gradually cut down on cigarettes and after a few weeks cigarettes started tasting disgusting to me and I totally quit. For about two months now I have only used my electronic cigarette. I do not wheez EVER, I cannot cough up any ‘flem’ no matter how hard I try. I quit using a medication inhaler to breath and I feel 100 times better. I feel like I literally saved my life by converting to e-cigarettes. I know there are people out there who can’t say if e-cigs are ‘healthy’ but I can personally tell you MY body tells ME they are far better than smoking. I have not had any side effects from e-cigs, unless you call being able to walk and ride mu bike again a side effect. My kids will hopefully have their Dad in their life longer as well as their Mom. Because I actually felt so strong about these e-cigs I bought one for my EX wife. I also bought one for my Fiance and her Mother. My fiance has also totally quit smoking and doesn’t cough all day like she used to. My ex-wife has cut down smoking drastically so far, and my future mother in law also has cut down smoking about 1/2 as much as she used to so far. I cannot understand how any government agency could even consider taking my e-cig away. I would end up smoking again I guarantee it. My Fiance also agrees that she would feel the need to smoke again if she did not have her e-cig. If any person or agency is considering banning these e-cigs they are literally guaranteeing people will die from smoking. I don’t understand how anyone with a conscience could sleep at night if they banned these e-cigs knowing they are literally sentencing people like me to an early death. I hope my story helps others to try e-cigs and opens the eyes of the uncertain as to the benefits of these products. Thank you!
