How long did you smoke? -The better part of a decade. I smoked ~1pk/day. How long ago did you start using a smoke-free alternative? -About 6 weeks ago Exactly what smoke-free product(s) do you use (for instance, disposable e-cigarettes, mods, snus; what nicotine strength), and if this changed over time, how has it changed? -Electronic Cigarettes or Personal Vaporizer. I use a variety including ego variety and a cig-a-like None disposable. I use anywhere from 6mg-12mg nicotine strength. I started at this level and hope to get to 0mg. Do you still smoke at all (and if so, how much have you cut down)? -I smoked 1 pack over the first week that I started using PVs. None since that pack was finished. Did you both smoke and use the smoke-free product for a time before quitting smoking entirely (and if so, how long), or did you switch immediately? Or did you stop tobacco/nicotine entirely for a while and then start using a low-risk alternative? -See above. What methods (NRT, Chantix, counseling, etc.) did you use to try to quit smoking before switching to a smoke-free alternative? How long were you able to go without smoking using these other methods before starting again? -I tried nicotine replacement systems including the patch and the gum. Also cold turkey. What changes in the quality of your life (both positive and negative) have you noticed since adopting the smoke-free alternative? – I can breathe better. I have seasonal allergies, which has not really improved besides the slight reduction in my asthmatic symptoms. I smell EVERYTHING again (which can be considered both a positive and a negative – the world smells BAD). I taste better, which has led to me being able to be satisfied by smaller amounts of food. Also, an undefinable psychological bonus – I stopped smoking and that was a catalyst for wanting to be even healthier. I eat with more care, and am more conscious of what goes into my body. Before it was like, I smoke anyway, so why not eat half a pizza? I am going to die anyway Now I can say to myself, I am on a warpath to be as healthy of a person I can be, I can order the salad at this restaurant and be satisfied. Another double edged sword of taking up PVs is that I cannot have a decent vape break without having to explain what it is that I am doing. No one has ever been negative to me at all, but sometimes I just don’t want to have the conversation. This is where the cig-a-likes come in handy. Less chance of some intensely curious person asking what the hell I am sucking on! Don’t get me wrong, I am happy to share what has kept me off of cigarettes so effectively, but…ain’t nobody got time for ‘dat. I think it is important to note that giving up cigarettes has never once been a struggle. NOT ONCE. When the idea of having one ever creeps into my mind it is immediately squashed by the joy that is vaping. I have a ton of friends who smoke and I have not ever been tempted. It was never like that with the gum. Also, money. Vaping can be more expensive, but it can also be worlds cheaper once you collect enough to get onto a steady course. I have spent just as much on vaping that I would have on cigs for the last 2 months and I have everything I need. Now it is just juice costs, which are so much cheaper than buying a pack every couple of days. Where I live cigarettes aren’t even that expensive (about 6/pk).
