I wanted to contribute to this project so that it will give other smokers hope. I had smoked off and on from about age 18 up to age 39. Nearing my 40th birthday I wanted to finally quit but I had already tried the many other options, patches, gum, lozenges, cold turkey even hypnotism. Some of these worked for a few months, some less. I began using electronic cigarettes in June of 2011. Once I got one, I didn’t smoke anymore cigarettes. I know there isn’t much hard scientific evidence for the idea that e-cigs can help with quitting, but I have in fact quit, or switched, whatever you’d like to call it. I have noticed many health benefits since, including: less daily throat and sinus irritation, less frequent colds and visits to the doctor for what were always diagnosed as bronchial inflammations, a virtual disappearance of spitting up sputum every morning, and a vast increase in quality of sleep at nights. I’ve been a runner for several years and ran even while smoking. I couldn’t go more than about 3.5 miles at a time without stopping. This past October I ran a half marathon (13.1 miles) which included 9 weeks of intensive training (about 25 miles per week). My personal physician has said that these things are a great idea and I have lost and kept off 32 lbs now for more than a year.
