I had my first cigarette at 9 years of age and was a hard core smoker by 15. For 45 years I smoked the average of two packs a day. I tried an e cigarette only because I had chronic bronchitis which had gotten very bad at one point and a friend suggested I try to cut down a bit for a while with an e cig. I had no intention of quitting, have never even tried. I love to smoke, I love the smell of tobacco etc…The moment I tried the e cigarette, I had two packs of Marlboros in my pocket and never once smoked another cigarette. Never. That was last March 9th and my daughter takes it as the greatest birthday present she ever received. I have gained no weight,the bronchitis is gone (my doctor is thrilled with my e cig and the results)and I have never been tense. I smoke the lowest percentage of nicotine on what would be the EGo type. I spend about 8 dollars a week on liquids instead of 80 or more. I am a very happy and healthier person for the e cigarette. I run upstairs, my skin looks ten years younger, my teeth are getting white again. I am so much happier these days!
