I smoked for over 30 years and was sick and tired of being sick and tired. I smelled like smoke, my kids were always at me about it. I tried quitting so many times in the past using Zyban, patches and gum but nothing worked for very long if at all. Nicotine gum came out in prescription form and I tried that, worked in between butts to suppress the cravings a little or when flying but did nothing to help me stop. As soon as I could smoke, I did. I used nicotine gum for probably 8 years while still smoking. Even though it had gone OTC, it was expensive to buy locally. I started buying my nicotine gum off eBay from France because even with shipping, it was a 3rd of the price of buying it locally. During one of my eBay gum searches back in early 2009, I came across an electronic cigarette listing. I figured they were crap but decided to buy one from China anyway. My first e-cig from China broke in about 2 days but surprisingly enough, I liked it. I did a little research and built my own e-cig from parts and starting using it. For the first couple of months, I still smoked but my smoking got to be less and less until eventually I found myself not going outside for even the critical smokes of the day, like with coffee, after meals, etc. I still cheated here and there when having a few drinks but eventually stopped that also. Since February of 2010, I’ve been using my e-cig and love it. I’ve cut down my nicotine levels several times and even though I get older each year, all aspects of my health have improved since stopping smoking. I breathe better, sleep better and find my stamina to be much better. I can smell a smoker from a mile away now. I never realized how obvious the smoke smell was until my sense of smell improved.
