I smoked since I was 23. Dumb idea, I know. It was the only way I could get a break at the retail establishment where I worked. No biggie, I said, I only smoke a few times a day, I go through a pack in a week. Then school. Then two jobs, plus school. Plus a seriously hard breakup. I was up to a pack every two days. Not as bad as others, I suppose, but bad for ME. I tried everything when I was 27, 28–You name it. Snus, chantix, the gums, the patches, the lozenges. Cold turkey. Accupuncture. This is the only thing that worked. I tried Blus and NJoys and they were ok, but I’d always go back to smoking. Then I found the big PVs that I use now, and it was a world of difference. Long story short, I got the device on Dec 17, 2012, and I haven’t been smoking since.
