I was not smoking at the time I tried an e-cigarette and had not for 6 years. I was, however, always worried I would cave in and start again and I really didn’t want that ! My husband had started using an e-cigarette and was very happy not smoking and so was I ! I decided to try one and chose some of my favorite flavors with no nicotine. I call my self a social vaper. I enjoy it and I am confident that I will NEVER smoke another cigarette. I have helped many friends to quit as well and have become an advocate for e-cigarettes. In my opinion, it is the best way to quit over any patch or medication.
