Real People. Real Stories.

The Consumer Advocates for Smoke-free Alternatives Association (CASAA) is collecting successful vape stories and testimonials from smokers who used smoke-free alternatives to quit or reduce their smoking. The testimonials are posted publicly on our website for everyone to see, and may be sent to lawmakers to fight anti-vaping legislation.

This public collection of successful vape stories is a powerful response to those who want to restrict access to e-cigarettes and other smoke-free products. Our goal is to present a large collection of compelling individual reports that will make it impossible for anyone to claim that substitution of low-risk alternatives (e-cigarettes, snus, and other smoke-free tobacco/nicotine products) is not a proven method for quitting smoking.

You are free to write your own story and include or exclude any details as you like. However, if you would like a few suggestions, below is a list of questions to consider:

  • How long did you smoke?
  • How long ago did you start using a smoke-free alternative?
  • Exactly what type of smoke-free products do you use (please do not include company/brand names), and has this changed over time?
  • Do you still smoke, and if so how much have you cut down?
  • Did you both smoke and use the smoke-free product for a time before quitting smoking entirely (if so, how long?), or did you switch immediately? Did you stop tobacco/nicotine entirely for a while and then start using a low-risk alternative?
  • What methods (NRT, Chantix, counseling, etc.) did you use to try to quit smoking before switching to a smoke-free alternative? How long were you able to go without smoking using these other methods before starting again?
  • What changes in the quality of your life (both positive and negative) have you noticed since adopting the smoke-free alternative?

You may prefer to write your story in a word processor and paste it here. You need to enter your entire story at once – you cannot start it and come back. There is no maximum length. Please remember that by submitting this, you are agreeing to have it posted online.

My personal vaporizer, or "e-cigarette", has been a miracle for me. I started smoking at age 16, to be "cool" with my friends. That was back when you could buy cigarettes for 75 cents a pack out of a vending machine. Within just a few months I was hooked. It wasn't just a fun social thing anymore, I needed to smoke. Back then there wasn't a lot of concern over the health effects of smoking. I quit during my pregnancies, not out of concern for health, but because the smell increased my morning sickness. As soon as baby arrived I was right back up to 2 packs a day. Once the research became more public about how dangerous it was, I really wanted to quit. I tried "cold turkey" many times and failed. As tools became available I tried each one; patches, gum, inhalers, medications, even acupuncture and hypnotherapy! Nothing worked. In 2003 a dear friend died, and a large part of his illness was related to smoking. Even that wasn't enough to make me stop. Last January we decided that my elderly mother should move in with us for safety reasons. She cannot tolerate smoke at all. I decided to try a disposable e-cig to see if it would be an acceptable alternative for inside the house and in the car. That was on January 15, 2013. The next day I went to a local shop and purchased a starter PV kit, and have not touched a cigarette since! I have had no cravings, mood swings or weight gain. My morning cough is gone. Food tastes better. I have more energy and can breathe much better. My skin is beginning to look healthier. My mood has improved. I sleep a full night instead of waking up to smoke. Accounting for the amount I've spent on PV supplies and liquid, I've still saved nearly $700.00 since January. I started out at 24 mg of nicotine, but have since worked my way down to alternating between 6 mg and no nicotine. I truly believe my Personal Vaporizer saved my health and probably my life.

For almost two years I have used an electronic cigarette, and it has replaced my smoking of 35 years. I was on the verge of smoking related diseases, chronic bronchitis and emphysemia. Thanks to being able to use it, I have stopped wheezing and the mess of cigarettes and tar is out of my life. Thanks to using the e-cigarette in public, other smoker's have asked me about them I have been able to share the miraculous benefits of e-cigarettes, that I have first hand experienced, I presume sharing that may have helped dozens of other smokers, if not more find out about this replacement from the harm of smoking.I can not be near smokers.I do not smoke. Sincerely, Brad Wager


Karen Lee (Fiamma Palermo) 29 Palms, Ca.
Today is May 4, 2013. I am now 73 years of age. I smoked for 55 years, the last 20 years at the rate of 2 cartons per week. I started using an e cig 24 Feb 2011. I started with an Ego and have gone on to larger devices now. I started at 16mg nic and am now at 4mg nic. I have not had a cigarette since the day I got my Ego. Before trying an electronic cigarette I had tried to quit many times over the years, gum, patch, hypnosis and acupuncture. The gum made me physically ill as well as giving me canker sores in my mouth, the patch caused waking hallucinations. I could not sleep while on the patch. Nothing worked for more than a week and I was right back to smoking. I could not function without nicotine, it appeared. I could not think cogently, focus for more than a few minutes at a time, I was depressed and constantly irritated and uncomfortable. I was not a pleasant person to be near. Now I realize that some of what I was missing was not so much the nicotine as the comfort of the physical act of smoking. It gave me a space to change mental gears, a few minutes to put off something unpleasant, a retreat into comfort of a sort. I liked to smoke, I did not really want to quit. The impetus came from the last tax raise in my state on cigarettes. I became angry and decided something had to change and started looking around. I had seen the ads for the cig alikes and heard they were a scam, but I started doing research on the internet and decided that I would try an Ego starter kit and see how it went. I was amazed that the first day I tried it, the day it arrived, was the last day I had a cigarette. It was a totally painless process. I only made one rule when I started, no tobacco flavors, nothing to remind me of tobacco cigarettes. I vaped then and still vape dessert flavors primarily. I cannot stand menthol at all. I have had nothing but positive changes in my life since I started using an E cig. I have more energy, do not become ill, have not had a sinus infection or bronchitis. I breathe much better and can walk faster and for longer distances with ease. I love that I don't stink of smoke, my house smells good now, my car as well. I gained no weight as a result of the change and I am totally comfortable in my skin. For someone who didn't really want to quit smoking, I say now I would never go back to smoking, unless forced to by an ignorant society.

I started Smoking full time at 22 years old. Today, I am 36. I "loved" smoking. I tried to stop smoking with a full commitment 3 times. Once with an e-cig that looked and tasted much like a real cigarette. Each ended the same, failure. Today, 28 days after my purchase of a current model e-cig, (a Joyetech eGo)I am now 15 days smoke free and I personally converted 4 smokers to this product. It works and I am seeing more and more evidence every day. Even my 66 year Father is using a similar model Joyetech eGo e-cig and is having success in cutting his cigarette use after only 10 days of use.


Joe Morrow from Aledo, IL
I started smoking when I was 16 years old and spent most of the next 26 years attempting to quit the nasty habit that I started at such a young age. I tried almost all of the “FDA approved” smoking cessation methods that were available. Patches, pills and lozenges were all tried without any success, the longest I ever went without smoking using those products was a week. On August 12th, 2012 my wife convinced me to try an electronic cigarette and it did for me what none of the approved products ever could. From the first drag on that battery powered cigarette I knew I had finally found something that could truly help me quit smoking tobacco cigarettes. The taste, the feel of the vapor on the back of my throat and being able to exhale the vapor all made quitting cigarettes easy. Even though I knew that the tobacco cigarettes were horribly bad for me, I still enjoyed the act of smoking and the calming effect it had on me. I had 3 cigarettes left in the last pack that I had when I bought that electronic cigarette at the local Wal-Mart. I finished them a couple days later, when I forgot to charge the battery for my e-cig, and have not had a single tobacco cigarette since. Even though I started with an electronic cigarette that resembled a real cigarette I quickly switched to a bigger, longer lasting one that looks nothing like a tobacco cigarette. It is called an eGo battery, it is black and has no glowing tip so people will clearly see that it is not a tobacco cigarette. I now have two other types of electronic cigarettes in addition to the eGo. One is a rather large tube shaped device called a Vamo. The other device is box shaped and it is called a T-Max. The Vamo is chrome plated and the T-Max is dark red. I decided to get more devices so I would have a back-up incase one broke. I went with larger devices for the battery life and because they allow me many different options when it comes to what type of atomizer/cartomizer/clearomizer I want to use with it. Plus, they look even farther away from a tobacco cigarette than the eGo does. I also have lowered my nicotine level from 18mg to 12mg. I may or may not lower it further, I haven't decided yet. I enjoy the many different flavor options that are available. Switching away from a tobacco flavor to sweet and fruity flavors made the cravings for real cigarettes much less than what they could have been and made quitting that much easier. Right now my favorite flavor is a chocolate peppermint flavor that tastes just like a York Peppermint Patty. I now feel so much better than before. My lungs are clearer, no more wheezing, and I have more energy than I have in years. I truly believe that if I hadn't tried that e-cig I would still be smoking the tobacco cigarettes that were slowly killing me. I have since converted many of my friends and several of my co-workers from using tobacco cigarettes to using electronic cigarettes. All of us are experiencing improvements in our health, breathing, sense of taste and also our sense of smell.

"Looking back on one year of vaping" About a month or so ago I passed a big milestone for a vaper, the one-year vapeaversery. For the uninitiated, a vapeaversery is the date on which a person has not had a traditional tobacco cigarette for a month, six months, a year, and so on. It was a big day for me. Switching to e-cigarettes is a major life-altering experience, and coming to the realization that it worked, I mean it really worked for a whole year, was amazing. To celebrate, my wife and I had a nice evening out without the kids, and of course I purchased a Provari, which every elite vaper just has to have. Since my one-year vapeaversery, I've been seriously thinking about vaping and the impact it has had on my life and those around me. Where would I be had I not discovered them? Has it always been a positive thing for myself and my family? Where is this headed? To answer these questions, first I need to take you back to how this all started. Below is an excerpt from my very first post on ECF. For those that may not know, ECF is the e-cigarette-forum which is on online forum where people discuss e-cigarettes, and many new vapers land there first. For the ECF veterans, I recommend going back and reading your first posts too. My how time flies. "I'm having a garage sale one day in your average suburbia America, and my neighbor comes over. He says, "here hit this." I thought he was handing me a pen. "What is it?" I said. "I know you smoke cigarettes dude, this is an e-cig, try it." "Okay sure." So being the hot-boxing smoker that I was, I took a long, slow, four-second drag off of what I now realize was an eGo/dual-coil carto/super-juice setup. "Damn that was good, and real!" I said. My Dad, who was a very heavy smoker, tried it too. He went to the local vape shop and bought us both eGos that very day. I received some good advice to get started, which was to go with a high nicotine level, and if you feel like a real cigarette, have one. Don't stress over it. In hindsight I still agree with that. I had been stressing myself out for months, if not years, over "needing to quit this time." I was only perpetuating the vicious circle. I did my research on the health and medical basics, and decided I wanted to commit to e-cigs. So I took my eGo, a mediocre carto, and Camel 36mg juice and started vaping. For the first couple of days I still had urges for an analog, particularly in the morning. So I had one or two. But I vaped most of the day, and never had more than a few. This alone was a huge relief! I used to have this half-brained goal of getting myself down to just a few cigs a day, and then in one shot I was there, stress-free. Throughout the first week I still burned up an analog here and there. I mean, I just bought a $50 carton of Camel Lights! They were sitting there, staring at me. This was a good thing actually. With each analog I had, vapor tasted better and better. I slowly became aware that I liked e-cigs more. How was this even possible? Cigarettes had been the bane of my existence for so many years. Now they were meaningless to me." Back then I don't think my neighbor could have guessed at how badly I needed him to come over that day, and the difference that him walking across the street and sharing his e-cig with me made. Surely he never thought that we would help start this club [Hoosier Vapers]. Just like that, cigarettes had become meaningless to me. Had he not come over I would still be smoking them today. I know it. My wife would still be infuriated by the stench. My health would still be on the decline. I would still be stuck in the vicious (Big Pharma and FDA Approved) stress - quit - relapse cycle. Vaping has been nothing but a positive force in my life. Am I a bit consumed with it at times? Likely, but it's not a bad thing. I love it. My wife loves it. My Dad loves it. My friends are converting. I have absolutely no regrets about switching to vapor. I truly believe that smoking would have driven my family apart and destroyed our lives. Maybe not by now, but eventually it would have. The future is wide open, but I expect vaping will always be a part of mine. People sometimes ask, "Do you plan on quitting vaping?" That is a great question which really calls for self-reflection. My answer is a loud resounding "NO!" I work every day to reduce my nicotine dependence, but that doesn't mean quitting vaping. My goals now are to be that neighbor taking a walk across the street to share an e-cig with a smoker, to remain smoke-free always, and to spread the truth about tobacco harm reduction, e-cigarettes, and vaping culture.

I smoked off and on for 22 years. The only time I did not smoke was while I was pregnant. I started smoking around 14 quitting at 20 when I became pregnant. After having my first child, I only smoked during social outings. I began smoking again at 28 after my divorce due to stress. At 40 years old, I picked up a electronic cigarette and have not smoked since the day I started. From 28 to 40, I tried using nicotine patches, therapy, nicotine gum & lozenges along with cold turkey and candy. These worked for about 2 weeks, but when time to buy a new batch, I would go right back to smoking cigarettes. I have used 16mg of nicotine for two years, less than 2ml a day out of my electronic cigarette. I use a larger battery and a clearomizer tank to get the satisfaction I need. When I first started out I did try prefilled cartridges, but it just didn't seem to do the job. March of 2011 was my beginning of a whole new way of life. I do not have any current health issues with regards to lungs, but will say I can make it through an 18 hour day without being totally exhausted. I love not smelling like cigarettes. I do have a panic disorder, so when things get really bad instead of striking a lighter on an analogue cigarette, I just puff a little more on my electronic cigarette to find the relief I need.

I have been a pack to a pack and a half a day smoker for 16 years. During those years, I have tried to stop smoking numerous times using approved NRTs, like the nicotine patch and cold turkey. None of them gave me any satisfaction with regards to the behavioral aspect of my addiction. I could not get on the medication, because it would interfere with my medication regiment. I constantly craved tobacco, and whenever I saw someone smoke, I wanted to smoke. Watching a smoker pull a fresh cigarette from a pack, packing it down, and lighting it and watching them exhale smoke made me want to smoke. The e-cigarette satisfied some of these aspects of smoking which has helped me in dealing with my dependency for tobacco. I have been using an e-cigarette since March 18, 2012, and I have finally broken my addiction to tobacco. A week before March 18th, I quit cold turkey, but because the withdrawal symptoms were so uncomfortable, I wanted to buy a pack of cigarettes. Then, I remembered seeing my brother using his e-cig during a visit with my parents, and instead of buying a pack of cigarettes, I went to the mall and bought myself an expensive cigarette look-a-like kit. In the first month, I still craved cigarettes, but as I continued using nicotine in my e-cigarette, I slowly started to break the cravings for a real cigarette. I started my quit with a nicotine level of 24 mg and gradually lowered it to 6 mg. I smoked menthol cigarettes, so naturally I started with some menthol e-liquid. After the first two weeks, I noticed that I could taste better, and I started vaping some dessert flavors. I started appreciating being able to taste these delicious flavors since for so long I had not been able to taste anything so intense. I smell better. I can walk around my college campus without getting out of breath. When I smoked, I got bronchitis at least 4 times a year. I have not gotten bronchitis this year. I no longer cough out mucous. My family is quite happy I made the switch as well. They no longer smell like cigarette smoke, and they enjoy the smell of the vapor I produce when I exhale. If I vape a fruity flavored e-liquid, my family said it smelled like yogurt and suddenly got a craving for some. My doctors are also very happy I quit using the e-cigarette. Since then, I have given my first e-cigarette kit to my partner's sister, and she has been smoke-free since June of 2012 and an ego battery with a ce4 clearomizer and a can of snus to my Dad. He has not completely quit smoking, but he has cut down to less than a 1/2 a pack of cigarettes a day from being a 2 pack a day smoker for over 40 years. I got a friend who was a 2 pack a day smoker for 20 years to quit by taking him to an e-cigarette convention, Vapercon, in Richmond, VA. His fiancee has also quit smoking using an e-cigarette as well. I now own 3 eGo Twist batteries, 2 Bolt mods, 2 Lavatube version 1 mods, a Vamo, and an e-pipe. I have met some wonderful people vaping in public. Most people are curious as to what I am doing, and that starts a dialogue regarding my quit. If someone truly has a problem with me vaping near them, I can "stealth vape." This is when I inhale twice and hold the vapor in long enough, so that no vapor is exhaled. It isn't just smokers who benefit from my talk. Non-smokers benefit, as well. We all know someone in our lives who smoke, and I hope they pass the cards I give them to their loved ones who smoke. If I can save one person, it would be worth it.

I started smoking cigarettes when I was a freshman in Highschool 1972, I thought it was cool and felt pressure from my peers that already smoked. By the time I was out of highschool I was totally addicted, smoking a pack a day. I went for the next years just smoking, not thinking anything about it. In 1984 started working in a pharmacy, where I worked for 21 years and started seeing people with smoking related health problems,seeing this bothered me but I kept saying " this wont happen to me". At that time we smoked in the pharmacy.When the first of the NRTs came out I was certified in smoke cessation, and helped people on their journey to quit. I saw many that would quit for a short period of time and go back to smoking, then atime later would try again, fail and return to smoking. A very large amount of people I got started with NRTs failed and went back to smoking. It had put a bug in my ear to think about trying the whole quitting journey. Having seen the very high failure rate with NRTs I decided to try wellbutron, I craved more for cigarettes, and was very allergic to it. I had to stop. Having not stopped smoking for even a day. I tryed going cold turkey, but the addiction was just way to powerful even when the nicotine was out of my system my cravings for the cigarette were still very powerful and I failed. After all that even the thought of quitting would trigger a panic attack. Let me explain my craving, its not the physical addiction to the nicotine I had the problem with, it was the overwhelming, all consuming, feeling in my brain that would cause panic attacks even with the thought of quitting, the constent voice in my brain telling me to get a cigarette and it took over my life.I couldnt function normally. Over time I tryed all the NRTs, the patches caused me to crave more for cigarettes, lozenges had its own set of side effects, but I did get the farthest with using them, I went 6 months without a cigarette, but I still had a horrible craving for the cigarette and no matter what I did it wouldn't go away, even with a lozenges in my mouth I would crave a cigarette. I found I couldnt function at all, the littlest things in life became hard to do, I was clumbsy, cranky, and depressed. I had a car accident ( my fault) that is all it took to send to buy a pack of cigarettes. None of the NRTs worked. The craving was always there and upfront in my mind all the time. And I found everytime I tryed quiting I would end up smoking more when I went back to cigarettes. So I gave up on quitting. I had heard about e-cigarettes but I didnt know anything about them and figured it was just another NRT type product that wouldnt work. Fast forward a few years, 2012, I was in a corner gas station and saw a display of Mistic e-cigs. I got wondering if they worked, this was the real first time I had saw one. But really kinda put it aside in my mind. Then not to long later saw a display in walmart. I started wondering again if they work or not, my health was getting pretty bad, I had a constant cough, thick mucus all the time, having a hard time breathing many times a day. I couldnt make it up a flight of stairs without getting totally out of breath, or the walk to the mail box id be huffing and puffing. I was having worse problems with circulation to my feet and hands. I was starting to be allergy triggered more and more often. I really was getting scared for my health and I knew from working in the pharmacy what all this was.My fiance also was smoking and had been for 26 years was having breathing problems also. We were so discouraged from our failed attempts that we never thougth we would beable to stop smoking. So while in walmart we decided to try the mistic e-cigarette, this was November 2012, we went about a week using them and still smoking some but we were using the e-cigarette more than smoking. But the taste ( tobacco) was pretty gross tasting but we stuck with them. At a point before Christmas we were back to smoking. We started to research e-cigarettes because we were not happy with the mistic, we ordered a better battery and flavored juices from a company off the internet which we started on Jan. 2 2013. I quit cigarettes the day I started the new e-cigarettes and have not had one since. I thought I would need to have tobacco flavor, but I found I hated the tobacco tastes and did everything I could to cover the taste with chocolate flavored e-juice. The first month was I think the most difficult. I had an adjustment period the first days from the amount of nicotine I was getting from about 25-30 cigarettes a day to the 18mg/ml in the e-juice. I went threw some withdraw symptoms the first 2 days were the worse till the new nicotine levels evened out in my system which took about 7 days. I was still craving cigarettes, but I used the e-cigarette threw the cravings. They started slowly getting better. I tryed not to substute food for cigarettes like I had other times I had tryed to quit, in the past I had gained large amounts of weight. I found my hunger was stronger, but would just eat at the right times of the day and it got better also. Side effects were and some of these were from oral nicotine because I had them with the lozenges to, sore mouth,gums, hickups,cankor sore. Headaches, nerviousness, anger, brain fog would be from the adjustment period of nicotine withdraw, I had the same with quiting before. They went away after the first 7 days. BO,smelly feet,not feeling well over all, I believe was having to do with detoxing all the thousands of chemicals out of my body. From day one to the end of the first month my mind craved the cigarette, my mind even would play tricks on me to get me to smoke, telling me that the e-cigarette would not work, at one point in my minds eye I saw dancing cigarettes, my mind did everything it could to get me to start smoking again. Threw all of this I vaped threw it, telling my self this is it, this is the only way its going to get its nicotine. I had to be more stubborn with my self as my brain fought back. Little by little the feeling started going away, the brain stopped fighting. On Febuary 14, 2013 I had my "AH" moment. We had gone out for valentines to town 1 1/2 hours from home, and my battery died 1 hour into the trip. I did have a panic attack, but the first thing I thought of was to buy a disposible e-cigarette, not a pack of cigarettes. I was in store that sold cigarettes to find a disposible ecig but they didnt have any, at no time did I think of even buying a pack even when they were right infront of me. I mangaged to get threw the rest of the day and night using my fiances e-cig. but that is when I realized I had broken the "cigarette mental addiction". It has been all up hill since then, I have not wanting for a cigarette, I dont get triggered anymore at all. I can stand next to people smoking and not get triggered at all, this would not have happened with the NRTs. I had many many triggers and I can do all of those activitys now without being triggered. My second "Ah" moment was standing in a grocery store line with a person that smelled like smoke, I breathed it in, I even tryed to trigger my self by breathing her smell of smoke in deeply, but there was nothing, no trigger, not even a trigger for my e-cigarette.The effect from the smell was inert. The first time in 40 years I no longer have a craving, I dont even crave nicotine, the only way I know I havent had enought is I get cranky, and nervious. But there is no craving because the craving for the cigarette is gone. The true craving that your mind tells you is the "cigarette" not the nicotine. After the first month I started vaping less and less juice naturally, the need lessened by its self. I went from needing to vape about 3ml a day now im at 1 to 1 1/2 ml aday. My health at 4 months is so much better, I can breath better, the cough is gone ( at 17 days in) the thick choking mucus is gone totally,slowly its all getting better, but I know from smoking for 40 years its going to take years to have lungs repair totally. I have more energy,the nicotine keeps me from having the foggy brain, infact my memory is better, focus is over all better. I feel comfortable and havent had anymore panic attacks having to do with cigarettes. My over all mental health is good. I dont have the depression I would get from quiting smoking like I did before. I have left using tobacco flavors back the first month, I find I gag with the taste of tobacco now, I use many different flavors, Big red gum is one of my favorites, summers breeze ( fruit combo) licorice, grape, pomagranate are just some that I use. I find I like to switch up my flavors during the day. I have also graduated to a larger ego style mah battery that last charge wise longer. I use what is called cartomizer/tank that I fill myself. My e-cig of choice doesnt even look like a cigarette. I believe deep in my heart that if I hadnt found e-cigarettes I would and my fiance would still be smoking and would have continued to smoke, we would have probably died smoking. Nothing else worked for us the way e-cigarettes have worked. I feel very strongly about what e-cigarettes can do for the future, how it is helping many many people free themselves from smoking. I believe this inovation is the way of the future. I can say this with confidence having worked in the pharmacy and with my own experience, that nothing else works like the e-cigarette. At this point I plan on staying with nicotine, but in the future I can see working down off nicotine and just having the e-cig as a support tool to reinforce the retraining of my brain. As of right now I belive there is no going back to smoking at all.


Charlene Haste
I had smoked since I was around the age of 9-10. Yes hard to believe. I had quit cold turkey, I had used the patch and the gum at different periods of time, and finally I tried Champix. Oh yes the miracle drug! However it caused me to have stomach problems that I have never been able to get rid of. Did I quit with it? Yes for 3 weeks each time, but when I couldn't endure the pain and nausea any more, I went back to smoking. Then in the spring of 2011 I happened upon the Electronic cigarette. Much to my surprise after using it I didn't want to smoke. It took me about 4 weeks to completely remove regular cigarettes from my life. I use mostly eGo type batteries with clearomizers. As well I use a larger battery called a mod. I had been diagnosed with COPD in 2007, was told by the respitory therapist that I would be on oxygen without a doubt in about 5 years maximum. My lung capacity was in bad shape. I had been on advair, a puffer, and various other "lung" improvement medications. Once I put the regular cigarettes down in 2011 I had not used my "puffer" once, until two months ago I got a severe cold and it was the first time I had picked the darn thing up. I had to renew my prescription as it was out of date and didn't have any solution left. I have not used advair once! MORALE of the story: If these things had been around 30 years ago, I would not have acquired COPD, and I would not be sitting here typing out this story! ---- My husband had NO desire to quit smoking, NONE! After trying mine he said, "I think I would rather use that then a cigarette". Needless to say, he has not smoked in 2 years now either! Thank you E-Cigs for saving our lives! AND rescuing me from a oxygen bottle!
