My name is Neil Carter. I began smoking when I was 16 years old. I smoked until I turned 29, when I quit smoking using Zyban as a medical supplement. Three years later, and 50 lbs heavier, I began smoking again…I could not put up with the constant cravings and urges anymore. In 2009, I tried my first electronic cigarette. I had purchased a Blu starter kit, and decided that I would try to quit again by using electronic cigarettes as a replacement. The Blu seemed to help not only calm my cravings, but also help with the physical habits of smoking. Over time, I got tired of constantly having to change the batteries to charge, and fiddling with the liquid delivery mechanism (cartridges). So, I began smoking roughly 6 months after quitting using the Blu. A few weeks after I started smoking again, I would cough so much when I woke up in the morning that I would start to vomit. In May of 2010, a friend of mine told me about the electronic cigarette company Volcano. She let me try out her setup, and I was sold! It was everything I hoped the Blu would be when I purchased it. I ordered an Inferno starter kit that night, and I haven’t had a cigarette since. To this day, I do not crave cigarettes at all. In fact, smelling the smoke or the remnant odor of someone who just smoked makes my stomach turn. I wake up now with ZERO coughing, I don’t feel out of breath walking to the mailbox and I haven’t gained any weight. I don’t smell and cause my wife’s asthma to flare up. All told, I haven’t smoked in 1,110 days, and I couldn’t be happier and healthier! I still vape (use electronic cigarettes), for two reasons: #1, I enjoy it…immensely. #2, I am afraid that I stop vaping, the craving for cigarettes would be too much, and I would start smoking again. When I first started vaping, I was using 15mg nicotine in my liquid. I am currently vaping anywhere from 2-6mg in my juice, with plans to go to 0mg nicotine in the very near future. To this day, I have personally helped 16 people quit cigarettes using electronic cigarettes. I owe the electronic cigarette industry for helping me to quit cigarettes!
