My name is Ian, and I smoked analog cigarettes for 7 years. I started using e-cigarettes around early November of 2012. My story is this, when I was about 10 years old I was standing on the front porch of my house with my brother(who was around 24 at the time), and he was smoking a cigarette. I innocently asked him Why do you smoke, you know that’s going to kill you. He responded with I’m going to quit soon little brother. Well he never did. In October of 2008 my brother passed away from non-smoking related reasons. Leaving behind his 2 daughters, and son. Like I said, he never quit, or got the chance to rather. He was 31, I was 17 and had started smoking. Fast forward to the present. I was 24 years old, my brother’s son was 10, and I was standing on that very same porch. Just now the roles were reversed. My nephew comes outside and asks me almost the very same question I had asked my big brother when I was 10. It was at that point I got blasted into the past and thought to myself What am I doing!?. I looked at him, and said You know, it’s about time I quit. I wanted something to ween myself from cigarettes, to break the habit. I never planned on quitting cold turkey, or with gum, or anything like that, because I had watched my parents fail time and time again trying to quit. I was going to limit the places I usually smoked to get rid of the physical habits. I discovered e-cigs, and planned to only use them in my car, and places I would usually smoke. It was that very day I quit smoking analog cigarettes all together, and I now look back to that very day my nephew asked me that question on the porch. I did it for him, His dad never got the chance to quit smoking. So I did. Since then I have noticed dramatic health changes. I smell better, I can work out without feeling ridiculously winded, and I can do physical work I could not do before without stopping for a break. My Nephew and I can go out and play outside, and still to this day, a year later I have not considered going back to analog cigarettes.
