As a disabled veteran that has had a brain injury I had access to any and all forms of smoking cessation available. Over the years I found that none of them had any effectiveness. I am on Amantidine, a medicine for my brain, so I was unable to take Chantix. Because of my facial paralysis I was unable to use Nicorette Gum and ”the patch” never worked for me and has caused skin irritation and head aches in the past. After months of ”stop and go” quitting (a smoker understands) I saw an e-cig commercial… and haven’t touched a traditional cigarette since.
