I tried and knew I couldn’t quit smoking.
I tried and knew I couldn’t quit smoking. I avoided nonsmokers, gargled,
changed clothes, all kinds of cover-ups. Smoking really didn’t bother me,
didn’t smell bad, I was in pretty good health, why quit? But it wasn’t my
health that drove me to an alternative to tobacco.
My wife had quit smoking for 6 years before we went through the ordeal of
hurricane Katrina. The stress combined with my smoking was too much for her
and she started back up. I had never been successful at quitting, but she
had. I felt responsible and had to come up with a way for us both to quit.
I started reading up on the e-cigarette, different models, problems with
hardware, high prices and low prices. I ordered a couple of e-cigars for me
and an e-cig kit for her. For a few weeks I would vape around the house to
demonstrate how easy it was to cut back on smoking tobacco. On Valentines
day I gave her the e-cigarette kit. If took her a few days to get used to
vaping and not going for the smokes. We both have totally given up tobacco
and usually have several e-cigs on charge at all times. E-cigarettes are a
success story for us.
