As of today, I am 2 months, without a smoke, and feeling surprisingly good. Almost like I had never smoked ! A big part of my success, I owe to the people here :) Thanks a bunch :) ! ! ! ! !
--- Here, being a quitter, is a good thing. Only 7 out of 100 do ! ---
As a curiosity, research type thing, I decided to really look at the Ecig, as a quitting aid.. Now, to be clear, I am not talking about the big, strange, VAPE craze, just the simple, over the counter cigarette replacements, as a form of NRT / habit support for quitting.. So, this past week, I bought one of the disposal ones, to give it a fair try. As a 45 year, fairly heavy, smoker, I figured I was qualified :) According to what I could find, they do appear to be safe. Some question about chemical flavoring, because of lack or regulation, but the plain nicotine appears to be VASTLY less harmful, than tobacco smoke. My idea, and if I had to go through it again, ( NO **** WAY ) I would use one of these to pacify the really hard cravings. Much like having a nicotine gum, but faster delivery. The advantage is, unlike a cigarette, you can have a puff or two, and put it away. Yes, you would have to treat it as a tool, but if your mind is not on target, some kind of plan, you are not likely to succeed anyway.. I am not promoting a switch from one bad habit to another, just a little helper to get through the hard time.. But, that being said, if you just can't, or are not willing to give up the habit, you will improve your health, and maybe even save some money by switching to them.. I'm just saying, for an option in the war on smoking, they are worth a look. They are fairly inexpensive, over the counter, and no prescription ? ?
--------- I can tell you. The taste, and sensation of it, was WAY too familiar ! Over a day, I sat and had a cup of coffee, with the Ecig, two times. These were the nicotine level of a full flavor cigarette.. I had not had nicotine in 8 weeks, and I did feel the pull to have more :) I had to get rid of it :) Now a friend, who is wanting to quit, has it ! -------
