I started smoking at age 15. I couldn’t go 5 minutes without one. I couldn’t go anywhere that didn’t allow smoking, from restaurants, family events, hotel rooms,you name it they disallowed it I avoided it. I smoked 2 packs a day every day. I spent roughly $100 a week on tobacco. I panicked when my carton of smokes would hit the two pack mark & would rush back to the store to buy another carton. I was smoking more than ever before although my health was failing me. I had serious ear & sinus infections that would not go away. My allergies were out of control. My respiratory tract & immune system was fighting me every second of every day. I was sick constantly; bronchitis, allergies, sinus & ear infections, just to name a few health problems. I wont mention being diagnosed with high blood pressure at age 30 something. EVERY.SINGLE.WEEK. I was ill and at my doctors office. I coughed before bed every night & every morning when I awoke. I attempted to quit smoking AT LEAST half a dozen times. Once with gum, once with patches, once with big pharmas drugs, then back to patches. Nothing was working, I only gained the desire to smoke more, I gained tons of weight. All of this despite disliking the way cigarette smoke smelled, despising..no, hating the way tobacco cigarettes taste. …In February of 2014 I learned a lot of POSITIVES about e-cigarettes & vaping. I’d heard of these methods before but they were horror stories. I heard real stories from real people, those who quit analogs. Quit tobacco forever. It didn’t take long to try out true “e-cigarettes”, the pen like electronic devices with cartridges. I knew these were close enough to get me on the road to the BIG QUIT. It didn’t take a week to find a battery and a clearomizer, dessert flavored e-liquid & I then knew, I could put down the analogs forever. I stepped down from a 24mg to 18mh 10 12mg eliquid & I am on the downward nicotine spiral. Although, I ENJOY vaping. I LOVE the sweet flavored liquids. I love my mods. Not two weeks after my 41st birthday I quit analogs for good. Its been over 2 months now without smoking ONE SINGLE CIGARETTE. My health has improved 100%, not one infection since I quit. No more stinky clothes, no more stinky car. I can taste my food! I am not popping ANY allergy meds this Spring, a first living in the South! Ive gained no extra weight! No more spending hours at the doctors office for steroids & antibiotics, nasal sprays & ear drops, no more blood pressure spikes no hand full of pills two, three four times a day to keep whatever illness at bay. No more hundreds of dollars blown every month on illness or my habit. My husband quit alongside of me just a few days after I did. We feel so much younger & so much healthier. My doctors are thrilled. I am so much happier. My husband is so much happier. Our children couldn’t be more pleased. Dozens of our friends vape and no longer use tobacco. We have taken back control of our lives that once revolved around tobacco. No more. #IMPROOF vaping is safer. #IMPROOF vaping works.
