I began as a social smoker in college before becoming a full on smoker for about two and a half years from the age of 22-24. I was always an athlete and active so I switched to chewing tobacco, dippig, in hopes of giving up smoking and being able to enjoy my activities a bit more. The smokeless tobacco did help, I was no longer struggling to breathe during intense workouts and my endurance went back up. I then used chewing tobacco for the next 8 years always trying to quit. I noticed my gum lines were receding and I was also getting a grainy patch where I administered the tobacco. After countless failed attempts at quitting a co-worker introduced me to e-cigarettes. I was a skeptic at first and resorted to the disposable varieties and almost gave up do to its inconvenience and cost. The start of my tobacco free life began when I finally purchased my rechargable and refillable e-cig mod. It was customizable so I was able to find something that fit my lifestyle and the price was moderate as well. I began with a 18mg ejuice and have slowly worked my way to 6mg in a matter of 4 months. I havent touched tobacco since I bought my e-cig mod. I never thought it was so easy to give up tobacco use, I wish I had discovered e-cig mods sooner. I feel healthier, my gums don’t bleed anymore, and the best part of all is that the people around me dont complain about second hand smoke or the disgusting spit bottles.
