I smoked cigarettes for 30 years. I knew they were bad for me but I enjoyed the physical act of smoking. I’ve been known to say that you’d have to pry cigarettes out of my cold, dead hands. But – rationally – I knew smoking was stupid. A couple of years ago, I tried some disposable ecigarettes. They didn’t work for me – the ones I tried didn’t taste good and they were expensive (especially when you take into account the fact that the companies selling them would say that one of the ecigarettes was equivalent to a pack of cigarettes which was obviously not true). About three months ago, I stumbled across an ecigarette forum (ECF) and learned about some of the advances made in the past couple of years. So I thought I’d try them again. Bought a beginner set at a local store and have not had a cigarette since. Never wanted one, have absolutely no urge to smoke. You could give me a cigarette and offer me a light and I’d simply hand it back. It’s like a miracle! After one week, my older son looked at me and said Mom, did you realize your cough is gone? He was right. I feel so much better now and I’m so grateful these products are now available.
