Update to the below: this post was written on 5/19/2010… today, in 2017 – I have been smoke-free for nearly 7 years.
Couldn’t be happier. 🙂
On 5/19, I quit smoking.
This might sound like a small deal. It’s NOT.
I’ve been smoking since I was 13 or so. For the vast majority of time, a pack a day.
My new alternative?
E-cigs are essentially nicotine delivery devices – with one really important difference – you don’t BURN anything. So you’re not breathing in smoke at all. It’s vapor. They come in a billion different flavors and strengths.
But most importantly – they helped me kick smoking after nearly 35 years. Pretty damned cool.
Ignore the date on this video – I added it after the fact, and totally got it wrong.
You can find out more about e-cigs than you ever thought possible here.
What you’ll need:
1. a starter kit, which comes with the items I show in the video
2. Cartomizers (the tip with the liquid in it.) I’m a fan of the Wowboy carts, but you should experiment and find one you like. There are about 8 BILLION flavors.
3. Someone to give your ashtrays to – you won’t need them anymore.
