I was a pack a day smoker for about 14 years. My entire adult life, I was a smoker. I had tried multiple times to quit, even using nicotine patches. Nothing seemed to work more than a week. Then, I was looking on the internet and saw an ad for Blu e cigarettes. I ordered a starter kit. I used that for about a week, but the vapor production was not enough to curb my cravings for a cigarette. I inevitably began smoking again. Then I started looking at you tube videos of “vapers” reviewing e cigarettes and giving tutorials. I took one of the reviewer’s advice on which product to try. I went to a newly opened electronic cigarette store in a neighboring city. It was the day after Christmas and I had given myself the best gift. I had quit smoking. Ever since that first day, I never touched another tobacco cigarette. It was great! Now, fast forward 120 days. There are 2,670 cigarettes not smoked. I have $750 extra dollars in my wallet. I can walk up stairs and run without becoming winded. I don’t smell like an ashtray. Now I have a hobby that gives me satisfaction with only a fraction of the nicotine I used to have. Electronic cigarettes have saved my life. I’m proof. This is not a passing fad or the newest source of revenue. It is the best thing to ever happen to public health and it didn’t cost the government a single dime. Do not send us back to combustible tobacco and certain, agonizing, drawn out deaths.
