I have been using my Apollo Extreme Starter kit since June 10, 2013. I smoked regular cigarettes for 20 years, a pack a day. I have not smoked a regular cigarette since I opened my Apollo package and I have been using the 18mg nicotine strength of liquid!! (That is 50 days now!) In the past I used Chantix and the Nicotine gum….they worked for a little bit, but I always went back to smoking cigarettes in a couple weeks. Since using my Apollo Extreme Kit I have been able to breath better, I can smell better and I have a better sense of taste too.
