I had been a smoker for 25 years and when I lost my mother to lung cancer, knew it was time for me to quit but the nicotine addiction was so strong that i just couldnt do it without some kind of nicotine replacement therapy. I tried the patches first, several times, then tried the oral medications the doctor prescribed that was supposed to suppress the urge to smoke but none of those worked. I then started using nicorette gum and alas, something that replaced that constant urge for nicotine. The problem with that was, that as hard as I tried to follow the nicorette plan, I just couldn’t get off the gum without wanting to smoke. By the time I found out about the e-cigarettes, i had been using the gum for over 6 years, to the tune of about $360 per month. I started ‘vaping’ to save money and to wean myself off of nicotine completely. I had read all the research online that I could find on them, and at the time, doctor’s advised against using the product because it has not been FDA approved. I didn’t care. I had to give it a try. I figured if it bothered me, I could always go back to the gum. I used the e-cigs for about a month, and my asthma kicked up again. Not as bad as when I smoked cigarettes, but I needed rescue inhaler’s again. I had to figure out why I had problems when so many other’s with asthma and COPD were using these with no real issues. With trial and error, I learned that as long as I used vegetable glycerine, and flavor, (no pg),that my asthma was back in check. I started out using the 24mg nicotine because I wanted to be sure i was getting enough nicotine, but within a few weeks, had dropped to 18mg and after two months, I am down to 12mg. My long term plan is to slowly wean myself completely off of nicotine, but since I feel like I did when I was young again (energy, able to breathe, smell, etc), I am not in a huge rush. I actually enjoy vaping and no one in my family even notices the smell or is bothered at all by the product. I think that this a a great solution to those of us who are hooked on nicotine but do not want to smoke. It should be FDA approved as it does not contain those thousands of chemicals that tobacco does and is much safer and much cheaper to use than smoking or any of the currently fda approved smoking cessation products. To take this product off the market would mean that all nicotine replacement therapies should also be taken off the market, which will result in a drastic increase in smokers. If there were not a nicotine replacement therapy product out there, I can tell you with certainty that i would go back to smoking. The nicotine calms my nerves and is a great stress reliever. Thanks for listening!
