I had smoked cigarettes for many years and had tried every gadget on the market: gums, patches, lozenges, Chantix. I even went for a bizarre treatment of 3 injections that would supposedly help me to stop…none of these worked for me. Finally, my sons told me about ecigs. I thought I would give it one more try and I began alternately smoking cigarettes and using ecigs. Within two (2) weeks I had completely switched to only ecigs. That was one (1) full year ago as of August 17, 2013. I thank God for this freedom from tar, carbon dioxide, smoke and ashes. I NEVER want another cigarette.
