Hello, I started smoking when I was 14 years old and had smoked at the rate of a pack a day for the last 18 years. I was an early adopter of E-cigarettes as they at least curbed my smoking. I had tried Zyban and NRT’s of both inhaler and patch designs. These did not work well and, worse, had side-effects that made it easy to justify fully returning to cigarettes. My best success was with the patch and that was about a month before I started smoking occasionally while WEARING the patch. I decided to drop the patch instead of the cigarette. Fast forward to today, I am vaping on a whole new level. I have a very expensive Personal Vaporizer unit with many attachments. I buy American made liquids and hardware almost exclusively. I haven’t touched a cigarette in 8 months and I feel GREAT! The reason it works is that I haven’t given up the things that made smoking enjoyable and also meditative as a breaktime ritual. A quality E-Cig can hit the right chord that allows me to simply forget that I smoked anything else in the past. Some friends and critics say that I am cheating and I haven’t really quit. I think this is the same thinking that drives law-makers to attach the same stigma to vaping that smoking has EARNED through reasoned study. I have two things to say to those law-makers and my friends… 1. Haters are gonna hate. 2. Give me a REASONABLE argument, or respect my freedom. Vape On! Ryan.
