V2 Cigs Fan of the Week: Brenda's Story
Date Posted: August 10, 2011
My name is Brenda Hardman and I am a 60 year old EX-smoker, thanks to V2 Cigs! I quit smoking cold turkey once before and stayed off the smokes for 23 years. Alas, I became friends with a woman who smoked heavily, as well as all of her family and friends. I smoked a cigarette at one of her parties and I was hooked again - a true nicotine addict! I have been smoking a pack a day for the last 9 years.
I have desperately wanted to quit for the past several years, but knew I could not go the cold turkey route again! Patches did not work as the oral fixation of puffing was as much of an addiction as the nicotine. I even got a prescription and purchased the Chantix tablets, but I was too worried about the possible side effects to even try them! So, I continued to go outside in all kinds of horrendous weather to get my fix. Every hour at work, I would punch the time clock, limp down the stairs, stand outdoors by myself and smoke, then climb back up the stairs to my office. Mind you, this was no easy feat since I have arthiritis in my knees and hips. Also, I had become short of breath due to the smoking! At home, I sat in my carport to smoke as my housemate is a non-smoker and I also didn’t want to stink up my house. At craft shows, I would have to find someone to mind my booth so I could sneak out and have a cigarette. As the price of cigarettes continued to sky rocket, I was more motivated to find a way to quit. Someone mentioned electronic cigs in conversation and I decided to explore the possibility.
I did my homework thoroughly! I researched brands, read reviews and testimonials, looked at comparison charts and checked out the health factors for every company I could find. I was skeptical, but ecigs seemed like a possible answer to my disgusting habit. I felt that V2cigs was the clear front runner in the market. They offered a range of starter kits, lifetime guarantees on their electronics, 10 cartridge flavors, 4 nicotine levels and numerous shipping choices. The website was very professional and informative and everything seemed reasonably priced when compared to other companies offerings. I decided to take the plunge and I ordered the Ultimate Starter Kit.
I have smoked 5 tobacco cigarettes since receiving my kit – only because I didn’t want to waste an open pack! I have no craving for tobacco whatsoever at this point! I have been vaping for 2 weeks and I will NEVER go back to smoking! I am putting in an hour more of work everyday without the cig breaks – I sit at my computer vaping the V2 Power-Cig instead. My energy level is higher and my breathing is easier. No more wheezing or burning throat. My housemate is ecstatic over the change in my life, as am I. Even my arthiritis pain is better now that I don’t have to climb stairs to smoke – an unexpected, but welcome, side effect!
My life has changed radically thanks to V2 Cigs! I promote V2 to anyone who will listen! I firmly believe this product will help anyone looking for a way out of the smoking prison. Be as skeptical as you like, but for the sake of your health and sanity, give it a try. You have nothing to lose – except the smoking habit!
Thanks V2 and keep up the excellent work!
