I smoked up to 40 cigarettes a day from the age of 19, and after several quit attempts using cold turkey, Allen Carr, NRT etc. I basically gave up on quitting. The simple fact was that I enjoyed smoking and the only reasons I had for quitting were cost and health worries. Then, at age 43 I was hospitalized with a heart issue. That was a wake-up call.
As soon as I got out of the hospital I tracked down my local e-cigarette shop and bought their best starter kit. Unlike all the other quit methods I’ve tried I found that I didn’t have cravings and I wasn’t missing the hand-to-mouth action of smoking. It also tasted much better. I’ve now been smoke-free for almost 18 months with no relapses, and don’t see myself ever going back to smoking.
