I started smoking like a lot of kids around my time, to be one of the crowd and fit in. Unlike a lot of other people, I never went above one pack a day. This continued for many years. I had attempted to stop many times, to only fall back into smoking again. My boyfriend was turned onto the electronic cigarettes when we were out camping and he became interested in them. He started using them about 3 months before I started to. On Mother’s Day of 2012 at around 1PM in the afternoon, after 27 years of smoking, I started using my first electronic cigarette. I have not smoked a regular cigarette since. I did start off with a high level of nicotine, but since then I have gone down to the lowest. Just one step away from no nicotine. Since I am no longer smoking regular cigarettes, I no longer have a cough, I can smell things I don’t think I have ever smelt before, I have more energy than before, I do not smell awful, and I have been able to taste so many things. I am glad to have been introduced to this. Ever since I have been using the electronic cigarette, I have heard a lot of people having great success with getting rid of the smelly regular cigarettes.
