#8047892 Electronic Cigarettes

I have two joye510 e-cigs. They came in a 2 pack from cignot.com for $35. They are interesting but unfortunately can't compare to the real thing. I felt that I couldn't kick both the physical dependence and the actual habit at once, so I figured this was the ideal solution. By habit, I mean the act of smoking (something in your hand, arm to mouth motion, the act of inhaling, etc.). Anyway, I purchased them from cignot because they had the best price on the best reviewed model. I was unable to quit using them.

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.
