We read a lot of these, I thought it might be nice to consolidate it some. I've posted mine in numerous threads, but I'll tell it again to get us started. I am 40 now, I started seriously smoking at 19. bronchitis and emphysema run in my family so it was pretty dumb of me to have even started! I suffer from chronic ear infections and bronchitis in the winter, three or four times a winter. The last time I had bronchitis I'd had it three weeks before seeing the doctor. When I went in I needed two lung inhalers, a nasal inhaler, a steroid pack antibiotics and they had to up my antihistamines. Yes, I am allergic to about everything that pollinates! The last time I was tested out of 185 things I was allergic to 127 of them. I was on my way to a NASCAR race listening to SIRIUS radio's pre-race show and kept hearing the commercials about the "Smoke assassin" and really liked the idea of tapering off and the lack of ill effects! A little research and I found out it was a scam with people selling things they didn't understand, much less care to! A little more research and I kept ending up at e-cig all the time anyway, so I joined. I read and read and read, then read some more, Everyone kept recommending the 510's and saying they were the way to go. But 90% plus of the threads I read about them were ways to make them better, work better, or just plain work? Tea bags, battery mods, dripping, change this or that? ...? I want to quit smoking not get stressed out more I thought to myself! Then by sheer dumb luck I found this sub forum. Yeah, this place was different for sure! Here are all these crazy people arguing about which flavor is better and who go the best customer service? Very odd compared to the rest of this place I checked things out a bit more and lurked to make sure it wasn't BS, but there were too many happy people, even the unhappy people were happy in a day or two. "This is a company I want to deal with" I told myself! When I finally had the money together I had my wife sit down and I showed her the website, I showed her the videos, I made her read and watch as much as she would and told her this is what I want to do! She was impressed I had done that much research and was very encouraging. I must say, I am happier with my choice more every day! Thanks to ALL of you!
