I was a 2 pack a day smoker at the time I decided to switch to vaping in January of 2013. I had been smoking for 32 years and my health was paying the price. I was using 3 inhalers and had recently been given a nebulizer to provide me with 2 very strong medicines for my lungs. I found myself using those inhalers and the nebulizer so I could smoke a cigarette and then having to go right back to using those items just to breathe. I was a die-hard smoker and felt I was going to die via smoking since nothing I had tried in the past had worked. No medicine, patches, gum, or cold turkey had worked for longer than 3 months before cigarettes took over again and again. I was introduced to e-cigs by a friend whose sister, another heavy smoker, had quit using them. I thought if she could do it surely it would work for me. I bought a starter kit and while waiting for it a carton of cigarettes. What happened was while vaping the e-cig my smoking decreased by 2/3 immediately. I was completely off cigarettes within two weeks and haven’t smoked since, over 15 months. I have no desire for cigarettes. My breathing is great and I no longer use those inhalers or nebulizer to assist me to breathe. I haven’t had a chest cold or bronchitis the entire time I’ve used e-cigs which was unheard of before using them. I have converted other smokers to vaping and they too have felt the positive effects from vaping. Their breathing has improved 10 fold and they no longer suffer from chest colds or bronchitis. I know them personally so I’m aware of their health conditions. Ecigarettes have saved me from a horrible death and I’ll be forever greatful that they came into my life. I will now be around for my grandchildren and will see them into their teens if not adulthood. I could not have said this if I were still smoking cigarettes.
