I smoked cigarettes for 30+ years, most of that time being up to a pack or even a pack and a half a day. I’ve tried quitting several times, using Wellbutrin, patches, using a sub-ohm, and lozenges. Nothing worked. This time, I decided to try Chantix along with using a 5% (50mg nicotine) salt nicotine pod system. I’ve never felt better and quitting has never been easier. I have been smoke free for 3 months. I only used Chantix for 5 weeks, with only 2 of those weeks being smoke free with vaping replacement (I quit smoking during 3rd week).
Before I quit, I had severe asthma and was heading fast toward emphysema. I had swollen tonsils almost constantly. I wheezed all of the time and used an Albuterol inhaler at least once a day most of the time. Other than being exposed to mold once, I have not had ANY OF THESE SYMPTOMS SINCE. I have used my inhaler once in the last three months, starting the very day after I stopped smoking. When I was exposed to second hand smoke, I began sneezing and felt my throat swell. It became very clear to me, and my doctor agreed…I have smoked for 30 years and had an ALLERGY to cigarettes.
My father was diagnosed with a very aggressive small cell lung cancer a little over a year ago. He is in stage 4. I started out quitting for him, and ended up staying quit for ME. I could not have done it without the help of vaping using the salt nicotine delivery. My chances of succumbing to the same disease as my father are much lower. The chances of the issues I was already having becoming worse are now non-existent. The chances of my children and grandchildren succumbing to these diseases are even lower than mine. The amount of benefits here in just my one little cluster of family are ASTOUNDING. Just imagine what it could do on a large scale for smokers if people were properly educated on vaping!!
Vaping is not smoking…I won’t sit on it or be quiet…….IT SAVES LIVES.
