I had been a 2 pack a day smoker for almost 30 years when I was diagnosed with cancer in 2008. I had surgery and afterwards my oncologist told me I had to find a way to quit smoking. I had already tried quitting cold turkey several years earlier and that only last about 2 months. I didn’t know what would help me until I saw a commercial for NJoy on TV. I drove down to our local truck stop and bought a kit. I liked it right away but the batteries didn’t last long before they stopped working and the cartridges kept leaking. I told myself if I could just find a bigger one and one that was made better that this would work for me, I just knew it. And so began my internet searches for electric cigarettes. I spent a small fortune on 801s, 901s, 501s..etc… FINALLY I said…ENOUGH! I found the e-cigarette forum and from there I bought my first mod and never looked back. Here I am 4 years later and still an ex smoker. I never cough anymore and can walk up to 4 miles with my dog and never get out of breath. In fact, I LOVE walking. I never ever thought I would ever like walking but now I love it. So, that’s MY story….cancer gone, cigarettes gone and walking with my dog everyday….thank you ecigs!
