New way to quit smoking tested by our reader.
Quit Smoking is much easier now that even a few years ago. A smoker since 18 years now and having small health issues, I find it hard to quit the habit. I have tried everything from gums, Cloves, Eating excessively, drinking lime juice, Oranges and name it. If there is one thing I find hard to do – quit smoking. Electronic cigarettes have been famous for quit smoking since a while now and I had not tried it. I never thought that I would quit smoking with electronic cigarettes but I wanted to try it. It was a small hope and I wanted to try it before giving up on the last option too.
Many people find that smoking is linked to addiction of nicotine. Unfortunately for me, it wasn’t linked to nicotine but to the habit itself. I wanted to smoke in the morning. I wanted a smoke when I had a cup of coffee and I needed to smoke when I was doing nothing. I smoked while I was out with friends or when I came across a shop which sold cigarettes. The habit was hard to curb or control. Moreover I realized that I wanted something to stick on my mouth and blow out a huge pile of smoke all the time. It was not the nicotine and I was sure about it.
One fine winter evening while I was lazy to go out and get a pack I sat in front of a computer and decided to order the starfire cig online. What the hell? Maybe it would help me quit smoking. The pack arrived in 3 days and I charged it for an hour before taking my first puff. It tasted a bit weird. It wasn’t like the normal stuff but the hell it did blow out a pile of smoke (actually vapor). After a few puffs I was feeling good. The nicotine created the same effect of a cigarette and it was not all that bad. I finished my one real pack of electronic cigarette and decided to give the starfire cig a week’s time to try. I also did not want to waste the stuff for quit smoking I had purchased. The pack lasted over a month and a half. By then I was stuck to the habit of electronic cigarette and it was ok not to smoke the real ones.
Its 6 months past and I don’t crave for a smoke anymore. Its once or twice a day when I want to relax that I vape on the starfire cigs. Otherwise I am happy without anything stuck between my lips. I just realized then, it’s not all that bad and hard to quit smoking. All it needed was a replacement to give the same feel! Welcome to the world of quit smoking. I am relieved of the habit.
