Hello, My name is Charlene, and I had smoked for 40(plus) years. I started puffing on cigarettes when I was 9 years old. I am now 52. If you can believe this my Mom use to get me to light her a cigarette while driving. We certainly didn’t know back then what we know now! I have tried most everything there was on the market. Champix, Zyban, patches, gum, cold turkey even. I tried chewing on straws, keeping my hands busy by twisting or playing with rubber bands, and did the whole exercise routines the Canadian Lung Association recommends to help with the cravings. Walks, fluids, warm baths, literally everything. I managed to quit for short periods of time but I always craved cigarettes. For me, I think it is a hand to mouth fixation? I was at a home based business party, (makeup party) when I noticed someone puffing on what looked like a regular cigarette. Being that we were inside a house and no one I know smokes in their homes anymore I was a little shocked. She asked me if I wanted a puff and the rest is history. I initially ordered my first kit online. It was the small battery type that looks like an e-cig. Well I soon found out that, those small type E-cigs could certainly not support my needs. I ended up with an ego kit, then opted for something bigger shortly after that. That was 2 years ago, and what is important here, is my husband who never wanted to quit cigarettes switched to E-cigs like they were made for him. He had NO desire to put down his cigarettes. He tried an E-cig about 4 hours after I got my first kit and the rest is history. I have COPD and I have only used my asthma inhaler ONCE in the last two years. AND that was because I had a horrific chest cold. I feel much better, I can breath now and life just seems grander! I can’t tell you how happy my children are to see me finally leave the cigarettes behind. I have no desire to smoke again. I however completely enjoy vaping and don’t see myself ever giving it up. I don’t vape that mush now, only 4 mg strength liquid. That does the trick for me. I truly need to go back to the respiratory therapist and get my breathing tests done again. Three years ago he said I had about 2-5 years before I would be carrying around an oxygen tank. I had a 5% chance of changing this, but I had to quit smoking cigarettes. Someone was watching over me. Someone lead those E-cigs to me. I don’t know what I would do without them now! Thank you for reading. Charlene
