I suppose part of this could have been my mentality at the time. I felt obligated to quit rather than having the desire to quit. I did supplement a portion of the real cigarettes I would have normally smoked with the e-cig, and I believe I was saving some money. I was also under a lot of stress at the time which was definitely a trigger for me.
Since that time, I began what I suppose you would call a journey of self-improvement (JOSI). I haven't touched a cigarette in 73 days now. Ultimately, I quit using the Equate nicotine patches at Wal-Mart and by having the drive to do so. I smoked around a pack a day for 4 years and had smoked casually for 3 years prior to that. If I stayed on the patches for the rest of my life, it would still be cheaper than smoking a pack a day. Truly, I feel that the mentality you have about quitting supersedes the method used. I hope this was helful and wish you the best of luck.
P.S. Quitting is phenomenal. I am so much more physically active nowadays as opposed to how I was before. I feel better when I wake up and have more energy throughout the day. The sense of accomplishment I feel is unrivaled. It's undoubtedly worth quitting for more reasons than just your health, though that would be the primary reason.
