I Can Say I Am Cig Free – Sandra from Wisconsin
I smoked Kools/Newports since I was 13-14. I am 47 years old. Actually I smoked my dads cigs (Winstons) earlier than that. As a kid one imitates others. (I adored my dad.) I had tried numerous times to quit. Nothing worked. Last year 2010(Jan) I was interested in what a fellow nurse was using. She had bought a ecig from the mall. The price tag was around 150.00. I knew that I could not afford it and started shopping online.
I made it to this forum as a lurker and I did buy my first ego kit from you (ecigexpress) back in July 2010. I never looked back. I had the idea to gradually cut down. I did it gradually and it worked.
However, I could not completely quit one cigarette I allotted myself. I tried ego Ts, carts, LR atties. I was able to fully quit using a mod set at 4.2. So now I can say I am cig free.
I am enjoying making my own e-fluid at this time. I am going light on the flavorings. My husband is completely amazed . I no longer smell like a big old funky ashtray.
I really wish they came up with ecigs years ago. I could have saved my dad from his lung and heart disease. When he died he had 16% of lung function left. He had smoked 2-3 packs of Winston’s daily.
Back to me….I started having problems with allergies. The bronchitis was horrible. Each year I knew I would present with an increase in breathing difficulties. My 02 saturation was around 89-90%. (The amount of 02 that can be measured.)
Now I can take my O2 stats and they average around 97% to 99%. I no longer have adventitious sounds-wheezing throughout my lung fields.
I can state the fact that electronic vaporizers has helped me quit the cigarettes. My health has improved as evidenced by no coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, and increase in energy.
