I was born with short cilia,I lived in an oxygen bed in the hospital until I was almost 2, forever after I lived trying to keep my lungs free of debris. At the tender age of 15 I started smoking cigarettes, I smoked them for 32 yrs. I had tried to quit smoking many, many times. Using all methods they have on the market now. I could not walk up and down stairs with out the aid of o2, I was on o2 at 3ml in my home 24/7 per my doctors orders. I used a 200 puffs inhaler in 4 days time every wk. I could not cook, clean or do any chores or have any fun without my o2 or getting very tired from being short of breath. I smoked a pack and a half a day sometimes 2 packs a day. Drowning in my own fluids, wheezing every night. I could not lay down without feeling suffocated, I used a nebulizer machine with albuteral four times a day. I had finally had enough. On March 20. 2013 I decided to try and really quit. I had not had a cigarette in 24 hrs.. I was going nuts and knowing I would buy a pack of cigarettes if something else could not be done. Really you have no idea how crazy I felt for so long trying over and over again… I knew I was going to fail again. I knew it in my bones. I went to bed knowing I would not sleep; knowing that there was no place close to buy a pack of cigarettes. Then the next day with only 2 hrs of sleep and not having a cigarette in 24 hours; my daughter walked in the door.. I told her.. please go get me an electric cigarette. I do not care what brand or how much it cost.. just get me one. Because if I had went across the street myself I knew I would have bought a pack of Marlboro lights and continued to smoke. Well guess what?!!! it worked!!!!.. After I was done with that one I told her to go get me a blu electronic cigarette. By this time I had been online looking and reading everything I could about the electronic cigarette. Reading and watching YouTube video’s. and reading more and more about what was in them. I bought 2 more disposable Blu e cigarettes. Then I bought the Blu kit with the cigarette battery pack. Since then I have had 2 cigarettes in the last 2 months. I currently use the Ego battery with mini vivi nova tanks. I could cry.. I have cried. I never ever thought I would ever be able to give up smoking cigarettes. I stayed up late at night watching videos of these great devices and how they worked and what to do to get off of real cigarettes. and they all helped. I no longer wheeze when I lay down. I no longer have smokers cough, I can walk across my town without the aid of oxygen. I go to the park and walk around the park and play basketball. I do so much more and can do so much more than I could 2 months ago. I have not been able to have sex because I couldn’t breath.. ohhh the joys of sex..lol I can have sex now without wheezing or stopping because I am having an attack from smoking cigarettes.. I beg anyone who is reading this.. If you smoke.. just give these a shot. an honest try. because they really do work. If you know someone killing themselves from smoking.. please I beg of you to get them to try this. It really really does work.
