We get emails from time to time from people who visit our website about how they started using ecigs, why they started, how long it’s been since their last analog cigarette etc. I’d like to share one that we received recently from Tim in Oklahoma:
To whom it may concern,
Two years ago I walked into my doctors office a strong (I thought) 31 year old male. The only really vice I had was that I smoked, at that time for right at 15 years. I had been coughing for the last 2 months and it had gotten worse. My solution to the problem was to switch to light cigarettes instead of reds. My wife’s solution to the problem differed, so off I went to the doctor. After a few visual tests, I had to do some blood work and xrays. A few days later my doc called me and told me that I had Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.. At 31 that was very unusual.
My last cigarette was that day.
A friend of mine had been using ecigs for a while, so I looked into them. I had tried to quit smoking with the gums out there and patches, and even pills. I could never kick it. After a few hours searching online and talking to my friend, I picked up a eGo starter kit from a local store. I’ve reduced my nicotine intake down to 6mg as of last week. I saw my doctor for yet another checkup yesterday and wanted that is the reason I felt compelled to send this to you guys. My doctor says my COPD has all but subsided, and I have bronchodilator for 6 months now. I owe it all to switching to ecigs, and my wife of course
I hope this story reaches you guys, as we are forever grateful of the community and support in the ecig community.
