I had smoked for 25 years. I started when I was 15 years old and was smoking a pack a day for the last 10 years of my habit. I had been trying to quit for the last 10 years of my life. I have tried the patch, gum, Zyban, Champix, everything. Nothing worked well. The nicotine patches and gum seemed like it was doing nothing at all, I smoked while I was on them and was simply ingesting more nicotine. I did manage to quit for 2 months while on Champix but simply started smoking again after getting off the drug. I was again presribed Champix but this time there were serious psychological side effects. (depression). I honestly thought that I would never be able to quit tobacco. It made me sad, I have a wife and daughter who need me healthy and I don’t want to die of cancer. I tried my first e-cig on a whim. 24 hours later, I smoked my last cigarette. Not only have e-cigs changed my life, but I honestly believe they have saved my life.
