I smoked for 46 years and really enjoyed my analog cigarettes! I smoked Marlboro 100s and Camel Wides: in those last years up to 2 packs a day. With prices growing to beyond my means, I had tried the Nicoderm patch several times with no long term success. Financial motivations failed. After a heart attack, I was placed on the patch again in the hospital. This time I quit for 6 months… but the fear produced by this health disaster faded and I relapsed. Soon after, I ended up with pneumonia and had to be placed on oxygen. I now had COPD stage 3. This time I tried Chantix which never gave me a single cigarette-free day! I gritted my teeth and smoked only 10 analogs a day, but was miserable and stressed all the time. My addiction went far beyond nicotine: I loved the ritual of holding, breathing in and blowing out smoke! It calmed me down to light up. I first tried e-cigs 5 years ago but was disappointed in those I bought online that were over $100. So when my roommate came home with her first eGoT and clearomizers of flavored juice, I was surprised at how well it performed! She moved up to a Twist and gave me the eGoT. Within a few days, I knew that this was my answer to my smoking dilemma: I loved vaping! I was given a Twist with a Protank and have been off analogs for 3 months now. Health wise, I am now able to get around without the oxygen because my breathing is improving by the day! Vaping has been the miracle that has given me back my life. Quality of life too because it’s a stress reliever for me: I have my contentment back as well.
