Until a few weeks ago, I was a smoker for 6 years. I was up to a pack and a half a day within a month of picking up the habit and remained at that level the entire time. I first tried e-cigarettes 4 years ago–when the market was fairly new and access to information was limited–and did not have success with the particular unit I bought, and it barely helped me even cut down on my smoking so I chalked it up as a lost cause or too new of a market and continued smoking. Almost 3 years ago my first child was born and I tried chantix and had an anxiety attack because of it and had to quit taking it and continued smoking. A couple of months after this I briefly tried wellbutrin, but felt no difference in ability to quit and once again I continued smoking. Over the last couple of years I pretty much gave up on quitting smoking because I tried everything I knew of and nothing worked and just considered myself doomed to die early from cancer and just chose to accept that as fact. A little over a month ago, I started trying to better myself by eating healthier and going to the doctor for a checkup to make sure my health was okay because diabetes and heart disease run in my family–and I had a terrible diet for a long time in addition to being a smoker. While I was talking with the doctor I sporadically decided to ask for a prescription for chantix again figuring that since my life has settled down since the last try that it might work in coordination with anti-anxiety medication. Things did go better this go around, but a couple weeks into it the harmful thoughts and hateful actions toward my family combined with the constant nausea caused by chantix caused me to quit taking it. At this point I was already convinced that I needed to quit smoking and determined to succeed, so when I ran out of cigarettes picked up a disposable Njoy king from the gas station and it seemed to work well, so I did some research and placed an order for an Innokin iTaste MVP and a few tanks and different flavors of liquid, and I have been smoke free thanks to these products for 3 weeks now and I am positive that I can stay away from smoking and all forms of tobacco with e-cigarettes/vaping. I started on 24mg/ml nicotine liquid and just over the last few days have moved down to 15-16mg/ml liquid and I am feeling just as satisfied and havent craved an analog cigarette since getting this setup. Since making this recent change, I have noticed that I can breathe much better and keep up with my very busy and energetic toddler as well. I no longer have to worry about him losing his father when he is too young, nor do I have to make a decision between smoking around him and risking his potential health or sneaking off to smoke. I am able to spend much more quality time with him and my wife and I am very happy about it.
