I smoked for 44 years having started at age 12. I tried every method as they became available to quit; patches, gums, lozengers, Chantrix, Wellbutrin… All failed me in different ways and the longest I was ever able to quit was 2 weeks. In 2010 I was given my first e-cig for Christmas. It was the cigarette look-a-like type. I was not able to fully quit smoking while using it as the cartridges were preloaded, the battery didn’t last long and honestly they just didn’t taste all that good. Two months ago I was determined to quit. I discovered the newer models with refillable tanks and e-juice that I could buy in any nicotine amount I wanted from 30mg to 2mg. I started with the 24 mg and within 2 weeks used up my 1 ml bottle. I moved down to 18mg for another two weeks. I’m currently down to the 12 mg bottle and have already purchased a 6 mg as my next step downwards. My goal is reach 0 mg of nicotine. The e-cig has been the only truly successful method of quitting smoking I have found for the most part because I can control the increments in reducing my nicotine use. I failed on the patches because going from stage 1 (21mg) to stage 2 (14mg) was just too big a jump at once with no way to manage it; it was like starting all over with the cravings. With the e-cig I have the option to vape more often in the beginning with a lower dosage and gradually slow down to a regular schedule. I’m excited that I’ve gone this long without one massive craving attack. If it weren’t for the ability to find a flavor I enjoy (caramel) and reduce my nicotine use at my own pace I’m sure I would still be smoking harmful cigarettes. I’m looking forward to a longer healthier life thanks to e-cigarettes.
