A few months back I offered some aquantances a free sample of one of our Ego Ce4 Starter Kits in return I asked them to document their experiences with the e-cig. Greg was the first to take up the offer and below is what he has documented after 3 months use.
I used to be what could only be described as one ‘serious smoker’. That was until there came a rather serendipitous moment when I was offered a free ‘beginners’ pack of an e-cigarette from the good chap, Michael Hill at Ecigify. Thinking that it was worth investigating, especially because it was free (easy come, easy go, right?), I happily ticked the box and waited for the mail.
The pack was a battery, tank, USB charger, and a 10ml bottle of the juice. There were no instructions included, but they were not really necessary anyway. Figuring out A goes into B, and B screws on to C, it was very simple in its execution, relative to hand rolling each of the 3 to 5 smokes I’d typically have in an hour (although after nearly 30 odd years of smoking, I’d well and truly gotten the hang of that). The first taste was intriguing, the second probably a little too long on the ‘burn’ time (and a cough ensued), but by the third time the button was pressed, it seemed obvious to me that this was going to be more than an acceptable alternative to ‘the real thing’.
That was nearly three months ago now, and in that time I’ve had probably five tobacco cigarettes, and all mostly at a time when it would be fair to say I was a little shickered, and even then it was probably only within the first month or so.
Since then I’ve noticed a marked difference in a few key things. Firstly, I can breathe through my nose again, especially at night. That means that I probably snore less. I’ve noticed increased colour and circulation in my hands, and my feet don’t get as cold anymore; very handy in the middle of winter. I started feeling that I was able to breathe easier in general, and climbing three flights of stairs still left me with enough breath to say hello to the person at the top of them. In those three months, I’ve spent on e-cigarette supplies what I would have spent on tobacco in two weeks. And the best part of it all was that it was relatively seamless in the transition. ‘Smoking’ e-cigarettes requires no massive adjustment in your day-to-day doings, and in fact it makes things even easier because you don’t have to duck outside for quick fag at work, or the movies, or out for dinner, and you can do it in your car, in your house, when kids are around. Things smell better, taste better, and even just seem better.
I’m sold on them. I don’t see a need to purchase another pouch of tobacco ever again. Get on the e-ciggy and do yourself, and everyone else around you, a favour for the very obvious reasons. Seriously.
