I smoked full flavor cigarettes for 40 years. I tried the disposable cartridge ecigs a couple years ago but the battery would always die at the worst times, it was too difficult to keep up with spare batteries, I was never really satisfied with the vapor, and it proved to actually be more expensive than smoking. I was successful in quitting regular cigarettes for about one month but one day I misplaced my spare battery so I bought a pack of regular cigarettes and gave up on quitting. A few months ago one of my employees was puffing an ecig with liquid in it and I asked him about it. He told me about a store that was dedicated exclusively to electronic cigarettes (who knew?) and that his battery and liquid lasted the entire day. I paid a visit to that store and have never looked back. I smoked one regular cigarette per day for the first three weeks. It has now been over a month using only vapor and I do not miss tobacco cigarettes at all. Electronic cigarettes are so much better than they once were. I now mix my own e-juice so the cost is only a fraction of smoking. I have never once had someone in the vicinity of me complain about the vapor. Most of it has no smell whatsoever but a few of the novelty flavors produce a smell that non-smokers find quite pleasant. My brother, my wife, and two additional employees can now be added to the list of successful electronic cigarette users who have quit tobacco. Food tastes better, my sense of smell has returned, my truck smells better, my clothes do not stink, my daughter is off my back (thanks for your encouragement sweetheart)…the advantages go on and on.
