Hello my name is Tom Santurello from Columbus Ohio and this is my story of how E Cigarettes helped me become smoke free. I started smoking at the age of 12 this was back in the 80s when cigarettes were really easy for a minor to get a hold of. Cigarettes were cheap and there used to actually be machines in most bowling alleys and entrances to restaurants. so from that time on till I was 19 I smoked any where from 1/2 a pack to a pack a day. I then took the jump into restaurant management with all the stress and pressure my smoking increased to 2 1/2 pack a day until July 25 2013 when I smoked my last cigarette. Prior to this I had tried other methods first was wellbutrin. I had talked to my doctor 2 years ago about wanting to quit smoking and he suggested that I give it a try so I did with no success for 3 months actually at that time it made me want to smoke more.I got off the wellbutrin and continued to keep on smoking. So a few months later I went back to the doc to see what other options were out there I was having issues breathing and was put on an inhaler. This time he said to try Chantix I went on it followed the instructions and had all kinds of side effects after 3 weeks. Some of the side effects I experienced during taking Chantix included Anger for no reason at all Suicidal thoughts, Sleep Walking and dizziness I do not recommend any one take this product in fact I think it should be taken off the pharmacy shelves. July of 2012 I started looking into E Cigarettes as I started seeing a few show up at local stores. I went to Walgreens after looking into them a little bit online and purchased a BLU starter kit. The Blu wasn’t bad but the issue I had with it is the cartridges and batteries did not last long enough. I wanted something that resembled a cigarette and thought that this was the best choice which turned out not to be. It was back to the drawing board so I went back online and looked into what they called an ego it was a 3 piece design containing a bigger battery cartomizer and a cone. I purchased a starter kit got it and was not happy with it either as it tasted like burnt plastic and metal.After that experience I put it down and pretty much gave up on the E Cigs as I have close to over $150.00 wrapped up in products that did not do anything for me and did not help my craving for regular cigarettes. July 25 2013 I had been talking to a friend of my daughters and he suggested that I give it another try that things and liquids had come along way. So I took his advise and this time I went to a local store called Buckeye Vapors in Grove City Ohio. As soon as I walked into the store I was greeted by an employee working there and told him what I had tried in the past and that I wanted to give something else a try. I told him what I had in mind and said that I couldn’t go wrong with purchasing a 1300 mAh vision spinner with adjustable voltage and a Kanger Evod tank with a bottom fed coil. So that’s what I purchased along with a bottle of Atomic Fireball, Coffee & Blue Water Punch E Juice. I couldn’t be happier finally a product that produces enough vapor and doesn’t taste bad. After getting home and charging up the battery I finally after 27 years of smoking was able to throw away my pack of cigarettes. I have been smoke free now for 5 weeks and couldn’t be happier. I no longer have to use the inhaler as my wheezing has stopped sinuses are no longer full in the morning when I wake up and no more smokers cough. All in all I feel great I started with 24mg of nicotine and have cut it back to 16 mg. My energy level has skyrocketed and I find myself not getting tired as easily as I used too. Food tastes wonderful I didn’t realize what I have been missing for all those years that I was smoking.Sense of smell is increased as well the only downside to that but is a plus is that with being a Vaper and an ex smoker I can’t stand the smell of someone who is smoking now I really don’t know how I continued to smoke for all those years its just plain ole nasty now.I have also saved alot of money by switching to the E cig I roughly spend $20 every 2 weeks now where before I was spending over $160.00. To sum things up I would recommend anyone wanting to quit to give a good quality E cig a try it just might work for you as well.You will feel better and save money. My goal is to be completely off nicotine by the end of this year and with the help of the E Cig that’s going to be possible.
