V2 Cigs Fan of the Week: Marie’s Story
Date Posted: May 23, 2012
Forty five years ago when I started smoking, it was the “in” thing to do. Afterall, doctors, family and movie stars smoked, so how bad could it be? Never thought in a million years it would be such a horrible addiction. As the years went on, I smoked and smoked at least 2 packs or more a day.
During the winter, I knew I couldn’t keep doing this to myself. I was actually LYING to people telling them I didn’t smoke…pathetic, isn’t it? During that time a friend of mine and fellow smoker, who has COPD, was rushed to the hospital because she couldn’t breathe due to a case of pneumonia and they also discovered emphezyma and now she’ll be oxygen dependent for life. That was my wake up call…I didn’t want that to be me.
Like everyone else I tried cold turkey, the patch, the gum, lozenges, and medication and still couldn’t quit. I gave myself the excuse that since my husband still smoked, I couldn’t quit. One night we went to a friend’s house and he was smoking an e-cig and said it was helping him quit. A couple of months later, I came down with a cold and was not able to shake that cough for three months. That was my wake up call! I went online and looked for e-cigarettes and decided I wanted to try them to at least cut down on my tobacco consumption. Found out that Walgreen’s carried disposable ones and dashed over to get one. It was GREAT!!!! I KNEW this was going to be something that would help me succeed. I promptly went back online and found out about V2 Cigs and ordered the starter kit right away. That was two and a half weeks ago and I haven’t looked back. What a difference this has made in my life!
I can now say to people ” No, I don’t smoke” and have it be true. You’ve got nothing to lose by trying one. No more coughing and wheezing, you still get the hand to mouth satisfaction which a lot of quitters need. When you’re done reading my story, go to http://www.v2cigs.com and order a kit. Think of it as an investment in your health, because it is.
