My E-Cig Year in Review


My E-Cig Year in Review

Electronic Cigarettes. Personal Vaping Devices. I call them E-cigs. I used them to quit smoking. And I still use them.

I had a pack of smokes with me wherever I went. Every day. For 44 years.

How much did I smoke? I was a typical pack-a-day guy. Sometimes more. Sometimes a lot more. But most of the time I sucked down 20 cigarettes a day. I’ve read on The Internet that a cigarette lasts about 10 to 13 drags. Let’s say 10 puffs per cigarette. So … 200 times a day, 365 days a year, for 44 years adds up to 3,212,000 times I’ve taken a drag from a cigarette and inhaled tobacco smoke.

When I go out of my way to do something well over 3 million times I think it’s safe to say I had more than a habit. To be more precise: an addiction.

I knew I was deep in addiction territory when I was madly searching through the house … again … looking anywhere and everywhere for A Cigarette … and settled for a butt that still had a few drags left in it. I was acting just like Ray Milland in The Lost Weekend all because I ran out of smokes. It was time to face up to the fact that I was absolutely and sincerely hooked on cigarettes. So I quit … Until the next day when I bought another pack.

My starter kit arrived in the mail on March 6, 2010. I put the E-cig together, took a drag, exhaled, took another, exhaled, and knew that this was not going to be a replay of The Patch or The Gum.

This Was Different.

It felt like smoking … tasted better than smoking, but without tobacco or combustion thereby eliminating virtually all of the health hazards associated with smoking. And there is no second hand smoke because there is no smoke to begin with. I haven’t had a cigarette since.

I made a couple of videos about the E-cigs I used and then manufacturers and vendors started sending me different E-cigs to try and then review. And here are the videos I produced.

If you smoke, or you know someone who does … here’s a way to seamlessly and painlessly quit.
