I've been a smoker for 13 years. In February, after a bout of pnemonia and respitory infection I decided enough was enough. I heard about e-cigs while on vacation and somebody recommended that I try to use that to quit smoking. In the past, I quit, but began smoking again. The transition from cigarettes to e-cig was difficult as I was used to smoking at work. But since February, I've quit. It's now August. I am able to run 8km several times a week. I do not wake up coughing up a lung, and feel healthier. If they take away e-cigs, I will end up smoking again. I do not want to die of lung cancer.
