I smoked for over 40 years of my life. I tried everything to quit smoking. I tried Nicorette gum, patches. I tried hypnosis, subliminal messages, and counseling. I tried ALL the newest, latest and greatest drugs from the pharmaceutical companies in order to quit smoking. Nothing worked in the long run. I would quit for a short period and then begin again. Even when I quit for that short time, all I could think about was smoking, it permeated my entire life. I decided as a last ditch effort to try electronic cigarettes as an alternative to tobacco cigarettes. I made the decision to quit cigarettes completely, not to transition but to use the ecig as my quitting alternative. I bought a Provari mod and a Vivi Nova tank with some e liquid and began my journey. Electronic cigarette have been a literal life saver for me. It is the first time in my life since I started to smoke that I feel confident that I won’t ever go back to smoking tobacco. I have been smoke free from tobacco for 8 months now and have no desire for a real cigarette, absolutely NONE. I have used e-cigs and have been decreasing my Nicotine gradually. I feel that in a few more months I will be able to eliminate the nicotine from the ecig and be nicotine free for the first time since I was 14 years old. My children, husband and family are thrilled and some of my family are now using electronic cigarettes to quit smoking as well. They saw how well it has worked for me and are now smoke free as well. My health has improved dramatically since I started ecigs. Shortness of breath is gone, blood pressure normal, all the smell and second hand smoke issues are a thing of the past. I can’t tell you how much different my life is because of ecigs. They have completely changed my life and I can’t begin to express my gratitude for the availability of ecigs. They have changed many lives and will continue, God willing, to do so.
