    I've smoked since I was 12. Started when I found I wouldn't get sick on the second-hand smoke from my parents cigarettes. After 42 years of smoking my lungs protested violently. I've tried every form of NRT (the gum works, sort-of as a short-term (hours) substitute), but couldn't stick with them and always ended up smoking again. Knowing I had to kick the burning leaf I researched e-cigarettes and, using the information from CASAA and the fellowship at E-Cigarette Forum, made a committed purchase of equipment. It takes a (very) little while to learn to 'vape'; once some skill is acquired it becomes natural. In short order I found the burning leaf intolerable, preferring my e-cigarettes instead.

    After three months, I went for a visit with my doctor. He immediately commented on how much better I looked, and after giving me the once-over how much better my chest sounded. While I'll always have stage I COPD due to the emphysema the chronic bronchitis flares very rarely now. Heavy concentrations of cigarette smoke will set it off as will seasonal allergies. However, being in our local e-cigarette shop does NOT cause a flare up! I'm impressed as there is usually a large number of fellow 'vapers' gathered and the clouds, were they cigarette smoke, would certainly cause a flare.

    I smoked my last tobacco cigarette 9/26/2012, I've reduced the strength of nicotine from 24mg/ml to 3mg/ml and I am comfortable and much healthier. Thanks to the free availability of an electronic vapor alternative I am tobacco free for the longest I have ever been. I don't smell awful, I don't hack constantly, I can taste and smell subtleties I've missed while smoking and I spend a fraction of what I paid for tobacco products or prescription NRT.

    I've taken the need for advocacy seriously as a result of my experience. Contributing insight into strategy and legislative/regulatory technique to the community beginning with working my local state legislature successfully on taxation. As a research junky I've accumulated an unmanageable large library of research. The end result of this and 4 years experience in the fight is that I am now the vice president of CASAA.
