I quit smoking about 5 years ago when I ended up in hospital with a blood clot which broke up and went to my lungs. I could hardly breathe and after the doctors had me sorted and I no longer thought I was going to die (!), I decided there and then that I'd never smoke again.
I couldn't imagine putting smoke into my lungs after they'd just had to work so very hard to keep me alive. I was lucky because the scare I got was a stronger emotion than any nicotine craving and I never wanted a cigarette after that.
Before I went into hospital, both Ant and I had tried to quit numerous times. He'd been smoking for about twice the length of time that I had and found it really difficult to quit.
He's tried patches but for him it wasn't about the nicotine, it was the physical act of smoking so while he was getting the nicotine from the patches, he still had a hankering to have that cig in his hand.
He made the decision to try e-cigs and bought one about a week before the Electronic Tobacconist got in touch.
Here's what he had to say about the Vapouriz Fuse Electronic Cigarette Starter Kit
"I've been very impressed with this e-cig. It's slightly bigger than my previous one but the battery is better which is the reason for the size difference.
The packaging is very high quality, you can see from the photos that it comes in a lovely tin.
The unique feature about it is being able to fill it from the bottom with no danger of damaging the heating element, which is really easy to change and cheap to buy.
The refills are available in varying strengths with an excellent variety of flavours. The kit comes with one 10ml refill bottle of your choice.
Whilst the taste isn't exactly the same, it's close enough to be able to convince your brain you're smoking.
I was able to swap the chemical ridden, disgusting smelly tobacco overnight to the near odourless vapour of the Vapouriz with almost no hankering for the 'real' thing.
I've been using the Vapouriz for 3 weeks now and I'm on the lowest nicotine dose (6mg) refills. I can't see that I'd ever go back to smoking tobacco".
The kit costs £22.99 and comes in a variety of colours. The refills are available for 3 for £9.99 with 99p p&p. Ant said a refill lasts him about a week. We both think the product is worth the price, especially considering the price of tobacco nowadays and because of the health benefits.
