Today marks 108 days without a cigarette (3,240 unsmoked tobacco cigs) for me. I had a horrible smokers cough that developed after my 30+ yr “social smoker” habit became a 1 1/2 pk a day habit. It kept me up at night and I got to where I couldn’t even laugh without feeling like I was going to hack up a lung. And for someone like me, who loves to laugh, this was miserable. In addition to this, on July 31, 2012, I was told that I had stage III Inflammatory Breast Cancer. IBC is the most deadly form of breast cancer and the prognosis is rarely good. The five year survival rate is very low. I’m a single mother of a seven-year-old boy and I have no family, but I fought. After 16 weeks of two different kinds of chemo, a Radical Bilateral Mastectomy, & 8 weeks of intense radiation, I was declared N.E.D. (No Evidence of Disease). One of the things my doctor told me to do besides exercise, eating right and taking my medicine is to quit smoking. He said if I could get through all “that” that I was strong enough to quit. I told him it was the smoking that helped me get through all “that.” Nevertheless I tried… just about everything –including cheap “gas station” ecigs –with no success. Then, this past January, I bought my 1st ego kit. A little 650 mah & a CE4 tank. I struggled a little at first, but I stuck with it. Not only that, but I spent hours online studying. I was a sponge. Still am. I’ve gone from 12 mgs of nicotine ejuice to 8… to 6…to 4… and many days I Vape 0 nicotine. Yes, I’m addicted to Vaping, but smoking was never this much fun and it certainly never tasted this good. My Oncologist is 100% behind me, my son is happier, my house, car, clothes & breath have never smelled better and I can breath again. I’ve made so many new friends from all over the world because of Vaping. Cigarettes never did that. I’ve even learned how to build my own coils and make my own juice; safely and economically. And as I sit here & type this, tobacco free, I can’t help but feel thankful for this technology and proud of how far I’ve come. Again, that’s 108 days smoke free. …3,240 tobacco cigarettes not smoked. …$907.20 not spent on tobacco. ($252 avg per month) ….13 days 12 hours more I get to spend with my kid unless something else kills me.
