I had been a regular smoker for over 15 years by the time I learned of the variety of E-Cigarette option. By the time I was 30 I was up to smoking up to 2 packs a day, and had already attempted quitting 3 times, 2 using patches and gum and once just going cold turkey. It was at this point I decided to give E-Cigarettes a try. I hopped online did some research and picked out a battery kit, charger and cartomizer set as well as a few different tobacco flavored juices with 36mg nicotine levels. Within 1 week of receiving my E-Cigarette kit I was down to smoking no more than a pack a day. Now here I am 3 years later, I now use 12mg nicotine juice in my e-cigarette, smoke on average no more than 4 regular cigarettes a day, and only go though about 3ml of liquid a day. Recently I have begun branching out and using non-tobacco flavored juices, such as coffee flavored and soda flavored in order to reduce my consumption of coffee and soda as well. Prior to this I was drinking up to and sometimes more than a pot of coffee a day, and about 160oz of soda a day. I am now probably drinking on average under a pot of coffee a week and under 48oz of soda a day. E-Cigarettes have thus far improved my health by reducing the amount of nicotine and cigarettes I was using, as well as helped me reduce the amount of coffee and soda I was consuming on a regular basis.
