Hello! My name is Zach, and i wanna share with you my story about quitting cigarettes. The first time i tried an Analog or a tobacco cigarette I was 13 years old, becasue thats what all of my freinds were doing, and i wanted to fit in. I knew it was bad, i knew both of my parents and my sister were all addicted to them, but I still didnt care. I just wanted to be cool. I became a regular smoker and was up to a pack a day at the age of 14. Reading that aloud now is just horrific. I remember seeing the disposable electric cigarettes, or e-cigs, and whenever i puffed them it didnt give me that same nicotine rush that a normal analog would. Then one day in early October of 2012, one of my freinds came up with an Ego Twist, a Variable voltage electic ciggarete (meaning you can manually change the volatage on it for a bigger or smaller hit), and he told me that you were able to pick out any flavor juice you want and that they had different nicotine levels. I tried his, and it tstaed identical to the soda Mountain Dew. I was blown away. Now, when i tried his, i wasnt to fond of the way the water vapor felt in my lungs, so i didnt jump on the bandwagon right away and grab one, but it did make me wonder wether i could quit or not. A couple months before this i was told my grandmother had lung cancer, and not very long to live. When i visited her, I walked into her house and all i could smell was cigarettes. Now at the time yes, I still smoked, but walking into my grandmas house who can barely breathe, watching her struggle to walk arounf the house with a breathing tube attached to her nose, sit down, take the tube out and lite up a ciggarete blew my mind. She knew she had lung cancer from smoking, she could barely breathe, and was still doing this to herself. Right then and there I knew I needed to quit, but couldnt do it. I honestly dont know how many times I tried and couldnt. She passed away in late october of that year, and on that day i decided I was going to do it, that I needed to do it now before it was too late. Before i physically and mentally could not quit. That same day i went out to a gas statoin and bought a disposable e-cig for i think 8$, (which was a complete waste of money, it just made me want to smoke more) then remembered my about the one my friend had. The day i bought my last pack of cigarettes was October 21, 2012. My body in general feels better, healthier. I dont cough up any more black gunk in the mornings, my breathing is back to normal, my heart rate isnt irregular anymore, I don’t smell all the time, my taste/breath is extremely better… I just feel all around.. better. And I’m proud to say, I did it.
