I’ve been a big smoker for over 25 years. I was smoking about 30-40 cigarettes per day. I’ve tried many times to quit smoking but always reverted back to tobacco after some time. The longest time I managed to stop was 3 months and I managed to put on about 10 kilos in weight due to over-eating. Finally, in January 2012, a friend/colleague of mine introduced me to e-cigs. At first I was very sceptical, concerned of health and the concept was very new to me. I had heard about electronic cigarettes but never wanted to try. My friend and I decided to give it a go. For about 2 weeks, I vaped and smoked alternatively. The more I vaped, the less I liked the taste of cigarette. After the initial period, we decided it was time to quit smoking altogether. I was using a concentration of about 1.8% (18mg/ml), this not only helped my cravings but suited me fine as a replacement. The following months, I had the occasional cigarette as I thought I felt like a smoke … every time they tasted like I was licking an old ashtray, it was disgusting. That feeling of wanting a cigarette was purely habit and as I mentioned they tasted horrible. After a few months of vaping I was able to reduce my nicotine liquids to 1.5%, then gradually down to 0.6% (6mg/ml) after about 6 months. My taste buds felt great ! I was finally able to taste food again. Taste the subtle flavours of spices, vegetables, etc. My health had improved greatly, I was finding that I could now start sports again. My energy levels were improving dramatically, and the most important part, I felt I could breath again. No more short breath when doing sports. The morning cough that I have had regularly for the last few years as a smoker was gone and I never experienced it ever since. As a vaper now for over a year and a half, I am finding that I can slowly quit the nicotine altogether and find that I seem to forget to vape for a day or two. I am at the stage where I won’t panic anymore if I forget my vaping device as I would in the past when I forgot my cigarettes. I can’t say enough about vaping. It saved my life literally and the life of my children as potential passive smokers. I will never go back to smoking.
