I was a 30+ yr, 3+ppd smoker. I tried every method to quit including nrt products, hypnosis, acupuncture, cold turkey, herbal supplements, you name it. Because of ecigs i totally quit smoking 2/17/10 and haven’t looked back. I wasn’t thrilled with cigalike products, but the first year i vaped they were the only thing available. When i discovered hardwired passthroughs and 5 volt, then vv i was thrilled with vaping. As more liquids became available vaping became a better and better experience. I, like many others, prefer eliquid that does not taste like tobacco. Having lost close family to smoking related lung cancer and emphysema i finally feel i have a chance at not suffering their fate. I always knew that the hand/mouth habit was my biggest hurdle to overcome, because vaping addresses this issue it works for me. Prior to vaping, any time i attempted to quit in the previous 15 years i had to use an nrt product as i use nicotine therapeutically under physician recommendation and guidance. I have neurological disease which causes tremors and shaking and nicotine greatly reduces the shaking better than any of the numerous pharmaceutical products I’ve tried. Vaping is much less costly than using nrt products, plus, as with smoking, when I’m shaking more i can vape more. So that vaping helps with both not smoking and symptomatic treatment of the shaking is a great bonus for me. Vaping has vastly improved my life!
