Quit Smoking With Vapor Cigs

I’ve been smoking cigarettes for a long time – longer than I’d like to admit. I was constantly reminded that I needed to quit, but it’s one of those “easier said than done” kind of things. I had tried using nicotine patches and nicotine gum, but neither of them did the trick. I tried going cold turkey as well, but that was a nightmare, to say the least.

After I had thought that I had tried everything and resigned myself to a life of being a smoker, I took one last measure on the advice of a friend and tried some electronic cigarettes. I had seen them at the mall, they have kiosks set up everywhere, but always brushed them off as gimmicks. If this salesperson can stand inside of an enclosed mall and smoke this electronic cigarette indoors, how good can they really be as a cigarette? They must be a joke. But, my friend insisted, and I eventually caved and gave them a try.

I’m glad I did.

These things really pack a punch. As longtime smoker, I use the extra strength nicotine cartridges, and in terms of the buzz I get, I can’t tell the difference between the electronic cigarettes and traditional cigarettes. I never expected that. I’ve tried a couple different brands, and some have a stronger pull than others, but trust me – when you find a good brand that really gives you a strong pull of vapor, be careful you don’t choke on it – they’re that strong.

With the electronic cigarette, I still get my nicotine fix, and I still feel like I’m smoking. I didn’t get that with the patches or the gum, and certainly not when I went cold turkey. The act of putting the e-cigarette to my mouth, taking a pull, filling up my lungs, and exhaling gives me that familiar feeling of smoking a cigarette. Except since it is all vapor, it is much healthier than a regular cigarette, and even better, it doesn’t have the odor of a cigarette. My wife hates the smell of cigarettes, and it seemed like my clothes were always saturated with the smell. Not anymore. Now I understand why the salesperson was able to smoke inside of the mall, and I no longer write these e-cigarettes off as a gimmick.

If a longtime heavy smoker like me can find happiness in an electronic cigarette, I have no doubt that they’ll work for you, too – whether you are a heavy smoker like me, or just a social smoker – there’s a brand and strength for everybody. So before you commit yourself to a lifetime of smoking cigarettes, give electronic cigarettes an honest try and see for yourself. They made a believer out of me.
