I started smoking when I was fifteen cause it was the cool thing to do. I am now thirty-five and smoke a pack a day or more if stressed. I hate smelling like a cigarette and hate the fact I can’t smoke hardly any where and would love to quit. I am addicted!!! I realize how bad it is to my health and others and have tried many alternatives to quitting like the patches, nicotine gum, and even the nicotrol inhaler. Nothing has worked. I start feeling anxious and stressed and needed the cigarette to calm my self. Which I hate to say does calm me. Several friends of mine started going to Smokinvapor and using the ecig they have. I told everyone I was not going to spend the money on another gimmick. So they got all there spare parts together and gave me one to try. I started it a week ago and have not put it down since. The first day I kept trying to use both the ecig and cigarette just cause I still had some left over.. lol… The next day I only had the ecig and have not needed a real cigarette since!!! When I feel anxious and stressed I get the relief I need from it. I am getting the nicotine and not the stinky smoke. I finally went to smokinvapor and got my own. They were very good to me and all my questions. My long term goal is to decrease the nicotine level slowly and then quit nicotine all together and just use the flavor ones for habit situations. You know the ones that always get you smoking again.. lol..
