An ecig store opened up over a year ago in a small mall across the street from me. a little over 2 months ago I went in to look. I have smoked since I was 14 years old and at 52 was up to 2 to 2.5 packs a day. I have tried the fda approved patches, gum, pills, hypnosis that did me no good. Feeling like crap I went into that store thinking if I could cut my smoking in half maybe I would feel better. 3 days later I was smoke free. In less than 2 weeks I noticed a huge improvement. I can breath easier, sinuses and smell has improved immensely. I no longer gag myself with coughing fits, I no longer drench myself in sweat when mowing the lawn. My energy at 2 months is a vast improvement and my wife says my attitude is much better. I feel fit. My teeth and gums are cleaner and healthier than 20 years ago just after 2 months! If you are a politician reading this and want to be 100% worried about my health then please listen. This whole ecig thing is much safer, healthier, cheaper not only for me but those around me. People in ecig community want to help each other. I am truly excited about this life altering event. Please do every thing you can to help myself and others to keep this going. None of us want non smokers or children to do this. This is for us. I ask not to follow but lead. Ask doctors and dentists who see patients and ask them. Do not rely on someone with a doctorate that reads data all day and writes synopses for a living. Big tobacco is throwing money to get this unbearably taxed as to allow people to keep smoking.
