I started smoking at 17, before entering college. I smoked for almost 11 years, attempting to quit smoking three or four times using nicotine gum, nicotine patches, and cold turkey. I would go back to smoking within 1-2 weeks everytime, due to stress, running out of gum or patches, and the expenses incurred. I tried an eCig back in their infancy, around 2008 – regular sized cigalike with disposable cartridges. I liked it, but my eCig broke and I was tired of getting juice in my mouth and on my fingers – it was quite messy, and new cartridges every day or two were expensive! My friend recently told me that the eCigs of today are a lot better than they used to be, and encouraged me to get an eGo. The day it came in the mail was my last day smoking a cigarette – it’s been almost 3 months. The prices are minimal, the hassles easy to overcome, and the change in improved lifestyle were dramatic. I am still on high-nic juice (36mg) but have found a flavorless juice that I love. My energy is through the roof compared to a few short months ago, my breathing is better, and my newly-improved senses of smell and taste keep amazing me every day. I will never go back to smoking cigarettes as long as I have my vape.
