I have unfortunately been a smoker since I was 13. Have smoked nearly everyday for the past 15 years. I have tried nicotine gum and patches with very little success. It wasn’t until I started seeing e-cigarette commercials on tv and in the store and decided to give it a try, more as a way to eliminate going outside during the winter then to quit smoking. I used disposable e-cigs commonly found in convenience stores. I continued to smoke both regular cigarettes about a pack a day and e-cigs. It wasn’t until I found the E-Cigarette community and discovered the vast amount of e-cig options in both hardware and flavors that I considered using e-cigs as a method to quit smoking. I received my first Advanced Personal Vaporizer(APV)and some various juices in the mail about 3 weeks ago and have not had a cigarette since, nor do I have the urge to. A miracle in and of itself. I have also noticed several improvements in my health since quitting. My throat is no longer perpetually dry and irritated. My nose is no longer perpetually clogged and the phlegm I was constantly spitting up is gone. I wake up feeling more alert and my chest feels light and unencumbered. I would often suffer from migraine headaches when going without a cigarette for more than 30 mins, and those have also subsided. I genuinely feel like a new person. My only complaint with e-cigs is the price to get started, luckily there are a lot of cheaper options out there that I can take advantage of.
