I am curious if anyone has tried E-Cigarettes.
The first I ever heard of them was when I saw Johnny Depp in the movie "The Tourist".
Some time went by then a week ago one of the workers was puffing on something with a blue light at the end.
Looked like he was blowing smoke so I had to ask. It was an e-cigarette.
On my way home I stopped at the drug store and asked the pharmacist about them.
I told him that I have been smoking for a long time and thought they might help with quitting smoking.
He encouraged me to try using e-cigarettes as an aid to quit smoking.
They didn't sell them there but he told me a couple places in town that sells them.
All I found were the cheap versions but I thought I would give them a try.
Well.....it was not the same as a real cigarette. But it was better than I expected.
The taste is off a bit, and I drop it when I just hold it in my lips.
It does give me the nicotine like a cigarette and gets rid of the desire for a real one after a few puffs.
I haven't quit smoking the real ones yet.
But since I got the e-cigarette I am only smoking half as much as usual.
I am heading to San Diego next week and will see if I can find a better e-cigarette and get serious about quitting smoking for real.
I am curious to hear if anyone else has tried them.
What you thought and any suggestions.
