I have smoked since I was 13 years old. That’s 35 years. Both my parents smoked. My Mother developed COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) and passed away over 2 years ago. Since I am a geriatric nurse, I know how bad this kind of death can be. She had quit smoking about 3 years before she died. Our whole family watched her suffer and yet my father and I continued to smoke. Then my Dad was diagnosed with aggressive lymphoma about 2 months ago. He is 71 and does have other health issues, but he still looked like a healthy man. His oncologist said that smoking is the worse thing to do when you have to have chemo. I finally decided that my dad, my husband and myself were going to quit. I was a very heavy smoker. 2-3 packs a day. My husband smoked less than a pack a day. He has tried to quit numerous times using the nicotine gum and just going cold turkey. I’m sure that me continuing to smoke didn’t help at all. I myself had tried Chantix 1 time and I did cut down and it did help. I was even one of the lucky ones that didn’t have any side effects from the medication either. I think the reason it didn’t work for me is I didn’t have the motions of smoking. I quit using it after 3 weeks and I was only down to a pack a day. And soon right back to 2-3 packs a day. I asked some of my friends who have used he e cigarette and they loved it. I got my first kit about 6 weeks ago. I had tried the cheap disposable ones that only helped me not crave the nicotine at work, but I still smoked regular cigarettes. The first few days of having the e cigarette, I smoked about a pack a day while using it. We had brought a carton of regular cigarettes on a Sunday and still had 5 packs left in it when I did get my e cigarette. I am happy to say we still have 2 packs left in that carton. Right now I am smoking 1 regular cigarette a day. I really don’t even know why I’m smoking that. It doesn’t even taste good. My house is now smoke free. When I work in the yard, I can do so much more without running out of breath. I have not put on any more weight. I’m not grouchy. I don’t feel like I’m on edge. And the money we are saving is unbelievable. I started at a e liquid that was 18 mg. I just got the 16 mg and I’m hoping to go to a 12 soon. My husband has not had a regular cigarette in 3 weeks. I’m not sure, but I do think my dad might ask someone for a regular cigarette if he’s around someone that smokes, but he is going many days in a row without a regular cigarette. We have got my father in law a started kit and while he is still smoking some, we are hoping its going to work for him too. I know that nicotine is not good for you. But I will gladly keep using my e cigarette with just nicotine versus the regular cigarettes with all the other chemicals. Even if I stay at a 18mg liquid and continue to use my e cigarette the rest of my life, I know I’m going be much better off then smoking regular cigarettes. I never saw myself as an ex smoker. I never had too much of a desire to quit smoking. I enjoyed it so much. That is why I find the e cigarette so amazing. To take away my desire for a regular cigarette and not have any side effects is something I never thought I’d find.
