I started smoking at an early age. At 5 years I was stealing ciggarettes from family members, cars, etc. Smoking and inhaling. I took up full time smoking at 17 (and also dipping at around 9). I smoked for 23 years often trying to quit with different methods. Cold turkey, wellbuterin, chantix. Wellbuterin worked briefly (up to 6months at a time) but each time i quit with that i gained 40+ lbs and went back to smoking to try and reduce the obeisity. Cold turkey was a no go almost from the start Chantix would make me run for a trashcan to throw up in periodically. Then i was introduced to e cigs! What can i say? I have had 1 analog (ciggarette) in the last 6 month (and wow was it disgusting). I have lost 30 lbs in the transition to e cigs and quitting smoking. It was a natural transfer to vaping for me. Now my home,cars,clothing do not stink and when i smell another smoker i wonder how i did that for so long! My mother was a smoker for over 50 years and she transitioned to vaping at the same time i did. It’s quite possible that e-cigs have extended greatly the lives of two long time quite addicted smokers. Unlike analog (ciggs) with e-ciggs i have the option of slowly reducing my nicotine intake over time so that eventually even the vaso-constricter will be removed and i’m left with nothing but joyful vaping.
