I used tobacco products for 40 years. I smoked cigarettes and used smokeless tobacco, (SKOAL). And at one point both at the same time I’m very ashamed to say. I smoked in the neighborhood of a pack and a half to 2 packs a day and a can of skoal every 3 days. 40 years of this I will remind you. One day I said enough is enough, my gums were bleeding, I couldn’t breathe very well, I smelled like a dirty ashtray, the side of my car always had ash marks all over it, I hated what I’d become. I went cold turkey which lasted probably an hour. So I went to the doctor and he gave me a prescription for “Wellbutrin” (sp). It worked great with the nicotine withdrawals but it changed my personality completely, I didn’t care about anything, I just didn’t care. Which is not me at all. That didn’t last very long. During that timeframe a buddy of mine bought me a ecig. “What the hell is this” I said. So I tried it. Well to make this long story short, I haven’t put tobacco in my mouth or a cigarette between my lips in almost 2 years. I look, feel, and smell so much better, my gums are bleeding anymore, I don’t get winded anymore. In my opinion, vaping has saved my life.
