I began smoking in college three years ago ‘socially’ at parties (as everyone does), and quickly became addicted. I found the nicotine relieved stress, and began smoking more heavily when i took on a high-stress job in a kitchen. After the restaurant closed and i lost my job i thought it time to make an improvement in my life. I had been trying e-cigs as a substitute for when i couldn’t get out for a smoke break, and I decided to just make the switch entirely. 4/19/13 was the last day i had an analog, i have been smoke free for over a month and I feel better than i ever did while smoking cigarettes. Now I recommend E-cigs to anyone i know trying to quit smoking, and I hope this awesome technology can stay legal and help smokers everywhere switch to a healthier, better alternative.
