I started smoking when I was 17. I smoked for about 9.5 years at about a pack a day. My addiction was expensive, repulsive, and un-healthy, but the worst part was that it was so difficult to stop. I tried to quit several times, in fact every year at New Year’s Eve I would always have the same resolution: quit smoking. This of course only lasted a couple days and I always felt guilty when I started up again. My addiction was stronger than I was. I’ve tried patches, gum, and Chantix, but none of these things curbed my cravings and I didn’t like the side effects of them either. This last New Year’s Eve I had the same resolution as always, but there was something different about this one. I started researching electronic cigarettes and was not only intrigued but excited because I felt this just might be the answer! I ordered 2 Ego-T starter kits for my wife and myself. I received my kits on Jan. 12, 2013 and that was the last day either of us smoked a cigarette. I finally found a tool that actually worked. I honestly never even wanted a cigarette after I started vaping because E-Cigs taste better, aren’t harsh like cigarettes, and I don’t stink anymore. After the first week I started getting my sense of taste and smell back. I cant believe I went almost 10 years without being able to really taste or smell things to their full extent. This was another reason I don’t want to smoke… smokers smell awful! And I USED to be one. Six months later I still haven’t smoked a single cigarette, and I have no desire to do so. I have shared my story with several friends and family members and so far 5 people have quit and switched to E-Cigs. Thank you for your time, and I hope this helps!
