Hello, my full name is Paul Christian Crosslin. I live in the USA in a small town called Iola in the State of Wisconsin. I am a 46 year old Male who has been a smoker since I was about 16 years old, so, I smoked cigarettes for about 30 years at a rate of about 15 to 20 cigarettes per day. Around the year 2008 I became interested in quitting smoking and bought a so called starter-kit from Blu e-cigs. My experience was nothing less than an aggravation lumped in with a substantial monetary investment. The batteries did not last more than 45 mins and the cartos were not refillable and tasted poorly at best. So.. I went back and continued to buy cigarettes by the pack for about 5 more years. Then a dramatic change happened. I began to notice disposable e-cigs readily available in almost any convenience store or gas-station. I went online and researched everything to do with e-cigs and I was amazed at what was available as compared to when I first had looked. I went and bought a starter kit online that consisted of 2 variable voltage batteries (commonly refered to as Ego Twist) 2 refillable Clearomizers (vision vivi nova) a charger and USB converter. From the day I recieved this package from an online purchase until this moment I have not bought another cigarette. I filled the clearomizer with juice I bought from Johnson Creek (who supplies Blu with thier e-liquid) pressed the button on the eGo Twist and got such a wonderful experience of flavor and vapor (along with a substantial hit of nicotine) I have not had to have a burning tobacco cigarette ever since. That was March 15th 2013 and today is June 28th 2013. I DO NOT NEED A CIGARETTE BECAUSE I HAVE THE E-CIG ALTERNATIVE. WHen we use e-cigs we call t vaping because the simulated smoke you see is only vaporised water with flavorings. Thier are less than 10 ingredients in e-juice,none of which are carcinogens. Compare that to the thousands of chemicals in a burning tobacco product of which at least 16 are known carcinogens some of which may even make nicotine *more* addictive than in it’s natural state. It is a No-Brainer that e-cigs and the more advanced devices used to vaporise e-juice are at least 1000 times less harmful than burning tobacco. I wake up in the mornings refreshed and I don’t cough a smokers cough all day long. I breathe easier, life is better without cigarettes. NRT like gums and patches never worked for me, I tried several times to quit smoking without success until I found the electronic alternative. Yes, it mimics smoking burning tobacco. That is WHY it works for me and thousands of others. I DONT SMOKE, I VAPE. And myself and my environment are healthier because of it. Thank You.
