I’ve been vaping for 2 years now. I have up since I was terrified of lung cancer, was overweight, was stressed and was living a life of lies by pretending I was not a smoker.
I switched to cigalikes and immediately gave up cigarettes. I then spent 6 months experimenting with devices and still am to be honest. Vaping has taught me a lot. It broke down my routines and habit and destroyed a process in my life that was entirely focuss around cigarettes.
I used to suffer on average with 4 colds per year. Every cold I got generally developed into bronchitis. In two years I have not had any illness I can remember. I have had a few, what I would call sniffles but they go after a day or two. My breathing has improved. I can do exercise again. I no longer get chest pains. I lost 2 stone in weight in the first 6 months. My taste and sense of smell has returned.
It made me realise that I could continue to be happy by having access to nicotine and none of the detrimental effects of burning tobacco.
What amazes me is that it took very little willpower having failed several times before with NRT – because vaping reproduces an effect of cigarettes … the experience. Figures that cite a similar success rate of ecigs vs NRT I just simply don’t believe. I didn’t want to give up, I enjoyed smoking. Vaping is better however, way better.
