In 2010 I was smoking 3 packs a day plus 3-10 cigars on any given day. I had severe uncontrolled Asthma, had just been diagnosed with having COPD and was pretty much unable to walk my dog or go up stairs without gasping for air. I had been smoking for 37 years. Wanted to stop but simply couldn’t with the available products on the market. I saw a friend using a device that looked like a box of some kind and so I asked about this device. It turned out to be one of the early “box mods” and he told me he had quit smoking in short order using this device. He suggested I also try to quit. I ordered an eGo kit hopeful but not sure it would work. I also ordered a tasty fruity e-juice to use with the device I thought if I could at least cut down on the amount I smoked I’d be happy right? I got the kit in and it was quite different from smoking but it felt the same which is why it does work I believe. Imagine my surprise when I found on the third day I could not stomach the taste ,smell or stink of a combustible cigarette! In just those 3 days I only had one cigarette per day while using the vaporizer to quit. I substituted using the ecig every time I wanted a cigarette without any ill effects in regards to nicotine or smoking. By the third day I had NO desire to smoke at all! ZERO! My PCP tested me right before I quit smoking and my lung function was .2 which is horrible. After I had been quit a couple months we did another one and I had an almost perfect score at .24! She was amazed that I had been able to quit after all the methods we tried and failed with including every FDA approved drug and other methods. I had at least 15 cycles of quitting and failing utterly. I am so grateful for discovering vapor products! I would urge those wanting to ban these life saving devices to tread very lightly and stop being led by the CDC and WHO. Over regulation will kill this industry and send us all back to smoking if we cannot get the products we believe we need. A big thank you must also go out to Gregory Conley & the AVA who is helping to try and make evidence based facts a point of law regulating these life saving products!
