My name is Brad Parker, and I have been smoking for just over a year now. I usually smoked about a pack and a half of cigarettes a day. Eventually I got sick of them, but thanks to my addiction to them I couldn’t stop. I had tried just quitting and that lasted just a few days each time I tried to. I’ve known about e-cigarettes for a while, even tried one at one point and they just didn’t do it for me. That is until one day I stumbled onto some youtube videos talking about them. The ones they had and were talking about looked nothing like the ones at gas stations that were one time use. I got my battery and tank with some e-juice almost three days ago. I haven’t had or wanted a cigarette since. It seems so effortless, almost trivial to quit. Completely different from trying to quit cold turkey like I had been attempting. The effects though are what really amazed me. I don’t have to struggle through coughing fits and phlegm in the mornings now just to get the first few breaths of the day. I was almost in a state of disbelief when I woke up yesterday and I could breathe right away. I feel better, and there seem to be no immediate ill effects like with cigarettes. I always got this drugged feeling after finishing one, like I was sapped of energy and slowed down. Not so with e-cigarettes, I feel great. I couldn’t imagine putting them down and going back to cigarettes. They do everything a cigarette does, except slowly kill you with toxins. You get that hand to mouth habit taken care of, you still get that urge to smoke satisfied even though it is just vapor, and you get the nicotine in a much safer way that doesn’t give you cancer. These are my perfect solution for quitting cigarettes, and I plan in the future to step all the way off nicotine completely.
