E-cigarettes have saved my life. I smoked at least two packs of non filter cigarettes everyday for 36 years, from the age of 16 to the age of 52. I tried to quit using various methods including cold turkey, nicotine patches, nicotine gum, nicotine inhalers and even hypnotism. Nothing worked until I tried e-cigarettes last October. I have stayed away from regular cigarettes for eight months now, with no withdrawal symptoms. I no longer have the phlegm and lung congestion that had developed over the years. My smokers cough is gone completely. I can run and exercise without getting out of breath. I can smell a smoker from twenty feet away now, and it stinks. I’m ashamed to have subjected family, friends and strangers to that smell for so many years. I have gone from the highest 24mg nicotine level that is available from e-cig liquid manufacturers, and stepping down to 18mg, then 11mg, and now to the lowest 6mg. My next step is the 0 nicotine content vapor, and then to quit completely. I use the1000mah Ego Twist type batteries with the refillable cartomizers, tanks or clearomizers. I use liquid/smoke juice from various U.S. high quality suppliers.
