I was a 20 year smoker and I loved it, I just didn’t enjoy the aftermath that smoking did to my health. I did try to quit many times because I have asthma. I tried cold turkey, prescription medication, patches and gum. Nothing ever worked for me and I ended up returning to cigarettes defeated. I never even made it a day without an actual cigarette with any thing i tried. I got my first e-cigarette just over 4 years ago and it was complete success. I have not had one puff of a cigarette since that very first puff of vapor and not even been tempted to. I have tried 3 different styles of electronic cigarettes and ended up with the manual 510 style as my favorite and I love tobacco flavors in a 16 to 24 mg strength, but there is every imaginable flavor to choose from. I will probably always use an e-cig, as I love to be able to still feel like I am smoking without the health risks. Also, it is more socially acceptable. I am only looked at with curiosity and no negativity. It is such a relief. My asthma was reduced by half. My breathing capacity has tripled. My finances are less burdened because the cost is significantly less than actual cigarettes. Electronic cigarettes are easy to use. I do suggest ignoring most of the free offers as they do come with strings attached. I do suggest exploring to find your favorite e-cig and don’t give up right away. Find the strength of nicotine best for you and the device that suits you personally. Research and join a forum as the people who are on there are the most wonderful helpful people who just want you to be successful at no benefit to themselves. It is an awesome experience. Don’t fear buying from China as that is where most of it comes from and you can lower your cost. Good luck on your journey. If you take the first step I believe you won’t be disappointed. If you stick it out and explore, I know you wont.
