I smoked for over thirty years and tried to quit many times, but failed each time. I always went back to smoking. I heard about E Cigarettes in 2014 and thought about trying them. That year, I was given one of the cigarette styled ones or a “Cigalike” as they are called. I used it for a while and wavered back and forth between the E Cig and smoking. Then I got an ego style mod and a bottle of juice and tried that, the vapor was great and I found that I really liked it. Within a few weeks, I was no longer smoking and I have now been smoke free for a little over a year without ever picking up another tobacco cigarette. Whereas, when I tried so many ways, including the gum and pills, I was never able to quit smoking, but once I found vaping, I was finally smoke free and to this day have no desire to go back to smoking. When I was a smoker, I had trouble breathing and my doctor always told me that my breathing was raspy, I also had the feeling like I had sand or something in my lungs and airway, something I was always coughing from, but never had anything come up. Since I’ve been vaping, I’m breathing better, the sand feeling is gone, and even my doctor has told me how much better my breathing sounds and my oxygen levels are great. I’m breathing better and feeling better, and I’m happy to finally be smoke free. I sincerely believe, from experience, that vaping helped me quit smoking and saved my life.
