My name is Bruce and I reside in Tampa, FL. The following details are true and should be treated as such. I smoked cigarettes for 16 years. I started when I was 17 years old. In my early twenties I tried to quit using Wellbutrin with no success. This was recommended to me by my doctor and by my doctor from a Pharmaceutical rep. I experienced the side effects from the medications. I tried to go cold turkey with the meds but it didn’t work. I know of atleast 5 others that tried the wellbutrin with me and had no success with quitting. I kept smoking cigarettes. After the meds, I asked my doctor to recommend the nicotine patches. I got very sick from them. It did not cure my dependence on nicotine and the 4000 other chemicals in cigarettes. After the patches, I tried the nicorette gum and had absolute zero success. I kept smoking cigarettes. I never wanted to try the Chantix because at this point I am convinced that the pharmaceutical companies just want you dependent on their drugs which are highly addictive and have horrible side effects. I again, kept smoking cigarettes. Fast forward to January 2013. An employee of mine came to work with an electronic nicotine delivery system other wise known as an e cigarette. He said he had been using it in place of cigarettes with out any withdrawal. Told me where I can find it and how to use it. I started my research. These devices are not the cigarette looking devices, they are the pen style devices and mods that you can purchase online. After about a weeks worth of research totalling 5-6 hours of reading each night, I decided to invest in such a device. I quit smoking cigarettes and went fully on the device at a 12mg strength of nicotine. Today is July 30, 2013 and I have not had a craving for a cigarette nor have I had withdrawal symptoms at all. I have been smoke free for over 6 months now and feel wonderful. My doctor said my lung capacity has increased significantly and I no longer snore at night. My lungs are clear of the phlegm that smoking caused. Since I have quit smoking cigarettes and switched fully to vaping, my sense of smell and taste have come back immensely. Vaping is wonderful. I have no issues sleeping like I had when I was smoking. It is a clean alternative and in my honest opinion is 10,000 times safer than smoking. Electronic cigarettes are not the bad guy here, it is the Pharmaceutical companies and Big Tobacco. They are the ones causing dependence on products that are unsafe and not healthy. Thanks for allowing me to help with CASAA. Bruce from Tampa
