I started smoking at 16 when an older friend that I hung out with started. I smoked a pack+ a day for 30 years with a few periods of non-smoking but those cessation attempts were invariably short-lived. I tried nicotine gum and the patch. Neither worked because they did not address the fact that I actually liked the sensation of smoking. The ritual of it – I smoked pipes and cigars occasionally over the years as well.
Since I picked up my electronic cigarette I have not touched a cigarette. Not only have I stopped smoking but my wife, my adult daughter, my mother in law and several friends have stopped smoking. In my family alone we have stopped over 90 years of smoking. Vaping has not only saved my life but it has saved my family.
