How I quit smoking and made an e-cigarette website
I was submitting my Electronic Cigarette website url to an online directory listing - In the description of the site it said to \'Be interesting and detailed about what makes your site special\'. I started writing and what came out was the story of how I quit smoking and made an e-cigarette affilate website. I\'m reprinting it here as an ex-smoker who cares very deeply about the future of and the issues surrounding the Electronic Cigarette.
Well, I suppose that most would see Electronic Cigarettes Central as a standard affiliate site. But to me it was created as part of being freed from a 37 year long tobacco addiction. In other words, I smoked for 37 years from the age of 13 until the age of 50. As so often happens, a series of coincidences unfolded where I started out to do one thing and wound up doing another thing. I like to try and look at all things positively and this is a fine example of that. You see, I and m y wife decided to try and sell our house in the summer of 2009. The reason for that was to find a cheaper house with a smaller payment. So we put it on the market and did a bunch of fixing up and painting and cleaning and spent a whole lot of money. As people started viewing the house we would receive comments from them through the realtor service. The number one sentiment was - Great House, Priced about right, would never buy it because of the smoke smell that permeates the residence...\'
Ugh! We had prospect after prospect tell us the exact same thing. My wife and I said to each other \'what is going on? We only smoke upstairs in the one bonus room!\'
Well, I know now, going on a year later that long term smokers have very little sense of smell left but I\'ll return to that shortly. To try and get the smoke smell out we opened the windows, only smoked in the garage or outside, hired a (fairly expensive) cleaning service and re-repainted the upstairs! This was a ll during the hot humid summer of North Carolina were we live. In mid September 2009, after about 2 months of smoking outside and in the garage I had just about had it. It was obvious that no one would buy the house with the smoke smell - unless we got extremely lucky and had a smoker with no sense of smell look at it....but that was not to happen. I was sick of not being able to smoke inside. I had heard of and even seen Electronic Cigarettes but had never tried them because they seemed..well...electronic you know? I was used to the fire, flame and rich smoke from cigarettes! Which is why I could barley breath without wheezing some days and why I coughed and was congested constantly and why I was at the doctors for sinus and congestion related problems at least a few times a year - every year - guaranteed! The list of negatives could go on and on but the main point is that I was slowly but surely loosing my health due to cigarette smoking. I had given up drinking years ago. ..that would be another long story. But I could not ever manage to give up cigarettes. I had tried cold turkey, cutting down, counting cigarettes, putting them out early, putting them out late, cutting the tips off of the cigarettes, quit smoking programs purchased from advertisements, listening to the warnings of my doctors, zyban, chantix, the nicotine patch, the nicotine gum...the fact was and is I\'m hooked on smoking and not willing to give it up. That was a hard place to be in. One were I was resigned to probably eventually dying from some tobacco related illness. Both of my parents had succumbed to this fate unfortunately.
In that context, I purchased an E-cigarette starter kit with no intention whatsoever of quitting. I believed it would allow me to \'smoke\' inside the house without creating any additional odor or mess of ashes, etc. Well, the e-smoke actually worked pretty well. I had purchased a brand from the local mall. They did give off an odorless \'vap or\' that tasted pretty much like tobacco or menthol tobacco which is what I mainly enjoy. But the quality was lacking in this brand in that the smoke volume was unreliable and rather weak...It showed me that the concept worked but not good enough to consider giving up tobacco and just smoking e-cigarettes. Fast forward through the next month and I went on the web and started researching and learning about electronic cigarettes. I purchased a \'510\' model and that was better than the mall brand. I began to smoke more e-cigs and less tobacco. I was pleased with myself in that I was smoking much less tobacco. Then I purchased a 3rd model of ecigarette - a \'cartomizer\' style that had the atomizer built right into the cartridge that contains the e-liquid. Now THIS was the real deal. The things tasted so rich and put out so much smoke that I said to myself, I\'ll just try and smoke e-cigarettes for the weekend.
