To All: When I was 20 I started smoking full time, meaning everyday. I initially started smoking as a way to alleviate my stress levels by avoiding the stressors. Eventually it got to the point that I couldn’t go through my day without at least a pack in a day whether I was stressed or not. In 2004 was the first time I tried to quit cold turkey. That was successful for a year before I couldn’t stand the cravings anymore and started back up right where I left off. In 2007 I quit again, cold turkey, and this time I was a little more successful. I was able to avoid most stressful situations, and resist the ones that I couldn’t avoid. I moved in with a friend and within a day or two i started right back up with the smoking. I did notice the e-cigs in the cigarette store I regularly went to, and I decided to try it out. I purchased the device and started using it. It did help me cut down a little, but I still had the cravings as much as I ever did. Eventually I stopped using the e-cig I had bought. Almost 2 years after I had stopped the e-cig I had gotten a friend of mine started working at a shop that all they sold was e-cigarettes. Me and my significant other decided to give them a try. on July 10, 2013 we went to the store and purchased the e-cigarette together, and picked our flavors. Since that time I have not had a smoke or had a craving to smoke. On the day that I bought the e-cigarette I have now I did smoke a couple cigarettes but very quickly stopped that because they tasted horrible. Soon after that I started noticing that I wasn’t coughing every morning, and it was a lot easier to breathe and take deep breaths. I was able to smell everything better almost like my sense of smell was recovering. People don’t complain about my smell either. I feel all around better since I bought my e-cigarette on July 10, 2013, and I have not had a cigarette since that day, and have not had any cravings. I also was able to convince one of the clients I deal with to switch to an e-cigarette soon after I had. While he was smoking cigarettes he was harder to deal with and was very obnoxious when it was time for him to have a smoke. After he switched he is easier to handle and sometimes forgets about his smoke times.
