Started smoking cigarettes at age 16. I had a family member force us into it, because he smoked. I got immediately addicted but always hated it. I am now 37. I chewed nicotine gum for the past 4 years and have had huge withdrawal symptoms from it. I then went back to cigarettes due to immense stress in March 2013. Knowing I wanted to quit and not due to gum all over again I chose to try out a e cigarette. Wow what a different feeling. very easy tried it once and never did real tobacco or even have an urge for it. I take a few puffs of the e cig in the morning and a few here and there and I am set. Many times I don’t even do it and have a great day. It helped me quit and never look back at real tobacco. I even reduced my nicotine amount in the ejuice by a huge amount.
