Fairly simple: About 2 years ago I wanted to quit smoking. I was tired of the smell in my clothes and car, tired of the coughing, tired of not being able to breath. I tried my first electronic cigarette…a rechargeable cigarette style with disposable cartridges. Within 2 days of purchasing this device, I stopped smoking completely. Slowly since then I’ve been able to reduce the nicotine levels from 18 mg/ml to less than 10. Recently I’ve reduced that to 4 mg/ml and have had no issues. Within six months of my first electronic cigarette, I was able to smell things like fresh cut grass for the first time in almost 20 years. My sense of taste improved as well and I began to notice just how much salt I had to add to things in the past to season them. Needless to say, I’ve cut my nicotine down to very low levels, reduced my sodium intake because I can actually taste it now, and have vastly improved breathing and do not get winded nearly as easily while working. I hope to be completely free of nicotine within the next 12 months and being able to control the levels of nicotine with electronic cigarettes will make that very easy.
