I am a 71 year old female. I have smoked since I was 13 years old. When I started smoking I thought it was so cool because all of the older kids were smoking. In the past I have tried numerous things to help me quit smoking including hypnosis however nothing ever worked for me. I had given up on trying to quit smoking and was smoking at least 2 packs of cigarettes daily. In the mornings I have always loved my first cup of coffee and that first cigarette, AAHHHHH. I have copd, acute bronchitis and have pneumonia 2 to 3 times a year. SSOOOO you can see the need to stop smoking. My daughter introduced me to the electronic cigarette March,2013, about 4 months ago. I have not touched a real cigarette since, I am smoke free for 4 months and having no problem with quitting cigarettes. If someone had told me this was possible I would not have believed them. It is truly amazing, my house and car are smoke free, I can breathe better and I don’t smell like an ash tray any more. Love it.
