I was introduced to e-cigs 4 yrs ago. At my son’s engagement party his best friend had one. The cigarette taxes took quite a jump in 2009 in Florida. I was only intending on cutting down my use of cigarettes to save money. Within a week I was down to about 5-6 cigarettes a day compared to 2 packs of cigarettes a day. I started with a very low nicotine liquid and an e-cig that mimicked the size of a cigarette. Prior to this I had tried lozenges, patches, Wellbutrin and cold turkey quitting. These never worked. I smoked from the time I was 17-18 years old. Averaging 2 packs a day for 37 years. I frequently had bad bouts of bronchitis and even pneumonia once. My initial use of an e-cig was not with the intention to quit smoking cigarettes. I physically began to feel so much better after reducing my cigarette intake that within 4-6 wks I was cigarette free. The taste of the menthol and mint liquids I use tasted so much better than burning tobacco. And my car stayed clean without the yellow nicotine windows I previously had. I now use an Ego variable voltage at work and use a Provari mod when at home or in the car. I can’t forsee ever going back to tobacco and hate the smell of tobacco smoke. And, I really LOVED to smoke prior to becoming a vaper. I can vape in my house. Used to have to go outside to smoke so I wouldn’t have smoke in my house or expose others to the smoke. E-cigarettes have made my life much more enjoyable. I feel healthier and don’t have the same gotta have it craving I had with tobacco cigarettes. Life is more calm and clean.
