I started smoking regularly in college, like most kids do away from their parents. I smoked for about 20 years. I didn’t consider myself a heavy smoker, but I did smoke about a pack a day. I first came across an electronic cigarette at a gas station, and it sparked my interest. I did not intend to quit smoking, but I figured I could use the ecig places where I couldn’t smoke. The first one a bought was one of the cig-a-likes you typically find at gas stations. It was OK, but I still was smoking regular cigarettes. About a week later, I started doing some research online about electronic cigarettes and discovered a whole new world I didn’t know existed. I decided to buy a better electronic cigarette kit that I found to have good reviews. Once it came in the mail, I started using the electronic cigarette more than the regular cigarettes. I started to think, Wow, these things really work. About two weeks later, and two more new ecigs I bought, I realized that I was barely smoking regular cigarettes. I found I was getting the nicotine I needed from the ecigs. About another week later, I made a decision to stop buying regular cigarettes. All in all, it took one month for me to quit smoking cigarettes, and I didn’t even want to. Now, it has been 10 months and I have not had a single cigarette, and I never will (as long as I can use my electronic cigarette). During my 20 years of smoking, I tried to quit numerous times. I tried the patch, the gum, and even Chantix. Nothing worked, I just thought I would smoke until I died. Even seeing my grandfather die of lung cancer from cigarettes, I still could not stop. Electronic cigarettes saved my life. I feel better, I don’t cough anymore, I have better stamina exercising, and I don’t smell anymore. The best part of this whole transformation is that I quit smoking and didn’t even try. I would recommend electronic cigarettes for ANYONE would wants to stop smoking.
