I am 33 years old, I was smoker for 21 years. Ever since I was old enough to buy cigarettes myself I was a 2+ pack a day smoker. I tried, unsuccessfully, numerous times over the years to quit. I’ve tried patches, gum, and cold turkey. None of these methods ever lasted more than a week or two and with patches and gum I still smoked cigarettes while using them. On top of that there was the irritability, anxiety, sleep loss, and weight gain that usually accompanies trying to quit. About 2 years ago my wife, who had been a smoker as long as me, and I bought a e-cig kit at a mall kiosk. We were excited to try to quit smoking and save money. However, we found the taste unappealing and something about it just did not satisfy the cravings or habits. But it was nice to have a smokeless alternative for when we were around friends and family that didn’t smoke. We tried other brands of cigarette looking e-cigs, but it wasn’t until we were introduced to personal vaporizers and vaping that we found something we could really latch on to. We went to a local brick and mortar, tried numerous flavored e-juices, found flavors we liked, bought evod starter kits and began our journey to quit the combustion cigarettes that we knew were horrible for us but hadn’t been successful in getting off of…yet. It has now been 10 weeks for me without a cigarette. I had 3 cigarettes day we bought our vaporizers and have not had one since. It was a little harder for my wife, but it has been 7 weeks without a cigarette for her now. I was born with asthma and with smoking many physical activities were difficult for me. In 10 weeks I can now walk up stairs without getting winded and sweating after the first flight. I’m looking forward to being able to walk my dogs and ride a bike again. Food now tastes amazing, but I haven’t put on the weight that I had with other attempts at quiting. I’m sleeping better, my wife says that I don’t snore as much or as loud as I use to, and I am actually dreaming again when I sleep. My house, my car, and myself no longer smell like stale cigarette smoke. In fact the smell of cigarette smoke is now semi – nauseous. I have no doubt that vaping has bettered my life and I believe a big part of this working has been the availability of various flavors and different stenghths of nicotine. I am a proud fan of sweet and fruity flavors, if my only option had been tobacco flavors I know this would not have worked because the tobacco flavors are unappealing to me.
