I been smoking cigarettes for over 40 years. My preferred smoke was Camel regular or Wides. I’ve never been a heavy smoker, no more than half a pack per day. I’ve quit many times over the years, but always take it up again after a few months. About 6 months ago I began using a mega-mini cartomizer type e-cigarette. The nicotine strength I prefer is 24mg. I have not smoked a combustible cigarette for past 4 or so months and have no desire to smoke, even when the opportunity is available. I beleve that my overall health has improved and my physician considers me a non-smoker. While I wouldn’t say that e-cigarettes are absolutely safe, I am hopeful that they are a less harmful way to enjoy nicotine and the ritual of smoking. I fully support continuing research and responsible measures to insure quality control of both the hardware components and the vaporized liquid.
