Smoked tobacco cigarettes for 40 years. Last 15 years of one and half packs a day. I was determined to quit during those last 2 years, it was the right thing to do. Nicotine gum and patches were my choices and recommended by my doctor. Both had some effect, but in the end didn’t satisfy all my cravings. I realized this wasn’t going to be easy. March 19 2012, I was introduced to e cigarettes by a family member. After using this personal vaporizer(e cigarette)for that day I knew another attempt to quit tobacco cigarettes was in my future. On March 26 2012 I purchased my device and 36 mg nicotine e liquid. After a few months I lowered my e liquid to 24 mg nicotine. This is the strength I continue to use. Satisfying my craving of nicotine AND satisfied my mental habits by using my hands, mouth, taste and seeing vapor. I haven’t had a tobacco cigarette since that day. My health has gotten better in all areas. My sense of smell and taste are returning. I have more energy and stamina than a year ago. I wanted off tobacco cigarettes and this was my way.
