I have been smoke free for 17 months with V2 e-cigs. I smoked a pack and a half a day for many years. There is no smell, no tar, no ash, no fire risk and NO Tobacco. It would be insane to regulate e-cigs like Tobacco when they do not contain Tobacco.
It is a nicotine delivery system like the patch and gum. However, because you produce a vapor instead of smoke, it simulates the smoking experience. Therefore, it is much easier to quit "real" cigarettes with an e-cig.
I have COPD caused by smoking many, many years. After a month's stay in the hospital, I knew it was time to quit. Easier said than done. I turned to e-cigs and much to my surprise it stemmed the dreaded withdrawal symptoms. I would recommend them to help anyone who's battling COPD. No more butts for me. Amen to that.
My last cigarette was May 1, 2009. I switched immediately to e-cigs and have not had another cigarette since, feel SO much better and have saved over $14,000, that's right 14 THOUSAND dollars, over the 4 year period of only using e-cigs. AND I have helped lots of other people make the switch as well!
I have been a smoker for just over 25 years. Six months ago i switched to the E-Cig and it is the best investment I have made in a long time. I can breath again, the coughing every morning and through out the day is gone. My kids will tell me that they are happier because i don't smell like a nasty cigarette. That was enough to convince me not only doing it for myself but for my kids so they will have a dad around a lot longer then they would if I was still using cigs. They work wonderfully no craving for tobacco, no anxiety, no anything but a better taste in my mouth and fresher smelling clothes. Would highly recommend it to anyone that wants to breath again!
2 to 2.5 pack smoker a day for 30 years. 3 days after I got e cig I stopped smoking. Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycol ( both in food and medicine and mouth products) and food flavoring. In 60 days I can breath, less sweating, better attitude and on and on.
You are not breaking your nicotine habit with these, just getting it without all of the extra poison. My wife and I have been off of regular cigs and on the e-cigs for 5 months and they work great. Plus we have moved to a lower nicotine amount twice already.
I smoked for 10 years and I could feel my body shutting down, hard coughs, chest hurting, spit up black stuff. I have been using the V2 electronic cigarettes for about 5 months. My chest feels a 100% better, no hard coughs and no black stuff. It's cleaner and better for you. I would recommend it to any smoker. Also I have known people that quit smoking by using E-cigs.
I was terrified about quitting smoking for the second time, it had been 10 years since my last ciggie. Got in a new relationship and started again!. By the time, that 6 years has passed I was getting up in the morning coughing and coughing most of the day. For Valentine's Day, my husband bought me an e-cigarette. Two (2) days later I put down regular cigarettes! I have still not had one yet!
my wife and I both quit regular smoking years ago and went to e-cigs. Our chronic smoking hacks were gone in a week and I had been smoking 2 1/2 packs a day for 40 years. We save gobs of money and our health has drastically improved. Sure it gives you nicotine, but so does Nicorette gum and Patches. According to the FDA there is no second hand smoke hazard to others.
Look now a days just about everything will make you sick. I know that cigarettes and the "new" chemicals that they are putting in them to make the cigarette "go out" are definitely not good for me. At least with the e-cigarette I am able to step down and quit.
thanks to e-cigs, I haven't had a cigarette since September 4, 2011, and I don't plan on EVER going back. I hope to quit the e-cigs one day, as well, but in the meantime, at least I don't wake up coughing myself to death every morning, and I feel better than I ever have!
I went from 2+ packs a day to using V2's and the difference is amazing. I have NO cravings at all, which is probably due to the E-Cigs not only having nicotine in them but also duplicating the smoking effect. I breathe better and that terrible smell ... which I only noticed when I stopped smoking ... is gone. E-Cigs may not be perfect, but they are far better than regular cigs are. Oh ... E-Cigs are also cheaper and I now save approx. $320 a month.
40+ years of smoking at 2 packs per day. Summer 2009 I went to electronic cigarettes by weaning off over a months time. Now almost 4 years later I still am free of cigarettes and have even went to NO nicotine liquids for 4 months now. I will be a supporter of electronic cigs for life!
