I smoked for about 20 years. I never considered myself a heavy smoker, staying at just under a pack a day. I knew all the risks and downsides, and many times over the years tried to quit, because I knew it was the best thing to do. I tried gum, lozenges, wellbutrin. I used community support websites and downloaded apps to track my progress. I’d try cutting down to wean myself off. Never made it more than a few days, if that. But I never really wanted to quit. I enjoyed smoking. I picked up a disposable e-cig one day at a gas station. The regular tobacco flavor. Mainly just out of curiosity. I used it very sparsely for months, just when I really wanted a cigarette and couldn’t have one. Then my girlfriend planned to quit smoking cold turkey, so I gave it to her. She found it really helped her make it through the day without a cigarette and went through several disposables before researching refillable/rechargeable models. We ended up purchasing an ego style kit that had two full e-cigs in it, and a tobacco and a berry flavor nicotine juice, so I decided to give it a try too, but had no real intention of quitting immediately. The first few puffs were satisfying, and my next cigarette seemed a little harsh. The pack of cigarettes I had lasted 2 days. The next one lasted 3 days. The next one lasted a week and was the last pack I bought. It’s now been 3 months since I had a cigarette. During those first couple of weeks I found myself wanting a cigarette, but then thinking, but the e-cig is so much smoother and better tasting. I still didn’t try to quit. It just happened. In the 3 months since I’ve smoked, we have tried a lot of 510/ego style clearomizers and cartomizers, and probably over 50 flavors, gradually lowering the nicotine content to half where I started (from 24mg/mL to 12mg/mL). I did not initially see any money saving benefits, but I went a little overboard on trying new things. And I have spent money on other smoking cessation products that didn’t work. However, now I am at a point where I have everything I need and I haven’t spent anything at all in about a month. In the time since I quit smoking, I’ve noticed definite improvements in my health. I no longer get out of breath with exertion, and can do more without having to take a break just to breathe. I do not have coughing fits. I do not have disgusting productive coughs in the morning. And I have less overall congestion, in spite of seasonal allergies. My sense of smell has improved. My house, car, clothes, and most importantly, my child no longer smell like an ashtray. My family and friends no longer harass me to quit. Although they would like to see me down to no nicotine, which is a long term goal, they find the e-cigs totally inoffensive, unlike tobacco cigarettes. This is the longest in my adult life I have ever been without cigarettes and it has been virtually effortless, even in situations that used to be smoking triggers. I would and do recommend e-cigs to anyone who will listen!
