I am 18 years old and I started smoking at age 13. Cigarettes being fairly easy to come by (let’s be honest, although it’s a huge issue not to be taken lightly there’s only so much we actually do to prevent this) I soon developed a pack a day habit. Having tried other methods I can honestly say that electronic cigarettes were the only alternatives to successfully diminish tobacco from my life. I’ve been smoke free for a year and I decided to write this because I believe strongly that if a product has made this large of a positive impact on my life, it can and will help others. It’s happening everywhere, the simple facts are that electronic cigarettes while not risk free by any means, are life saving alternatives to the deadly tobacco products being sold everywhere. It’s undeniable that adults suffering from the affects of tobacco should continue to have the right to choose such alternatives. Canton, MA is to become the first city to ban ecig sales. This is simply outrageous, and if other places follow suit it could mean the end of many peoples chance to kick their deadly habit.
