When I picked up e-cigs I had been smoking cigarettes for almost 20 years. I couldn’t breathe properly, couldn’t run without feeling suffocated, feared cancer, and my husband feared he would eventually lose me to the slow death cigarettes cause. I am happy to say I now vape e-cigs, have been for almost 6 months now. I breath better, I can run and exercise now, my sense of taste has returned, I don’t smell like an ashtray, and my husband and I no longer fear the health complications that comes with the noxious, dirty smoke of cigarettes. Electronic cigarettes are life savers for a lot of people and need to be recognized as such.
