I tried every possible method of quitting smoking cigarettes for years. I did have some mild success with a few of them. The longest period of cessation was 6 months. The problem was that I never stopped romanticizing smoking. I thought about it constantly. Any time something stressful happened or an event I wanted to celebrate I always thought about buying a pack. It was always on my mind. I thought about cigarettes constantly. I tried ecigs because I was sick and I thought it might be better for my lungs and I might start feeling better quicker. After I got over my short illness I tried to go back to cigarettes but I found that I didn’t like them. I quit smoking and started vaping full time. It’s not that I quit smoking for health reasons. I used vaping as an alternative. It turns out though that my respiratory system works better. I don’t wake up feeling like a bowling ball is resting on my chest. I don’t wake up coughing until my face is red. I don’t get winded after climbing a flight of stairs. I don’t start coughing every time I laugh hard. Me and my family don’t need a scientific study to know that it’s better for me. It’s happening to me. I’ll believe that evidence before I believe any study that was funded by people that have money to make or loose based on the results of that study.
