There was once a time when I would smoke 40 cigarettes a day without thinking about it. You could perhaps add another 10 or 20 onto that if I was having a night out with friends.Like a lot of smokers that I know, I was smoking a high volume regardless of what the dangers were to my health. The bottom line was that I felt great, I looked great, and was feeling no negative effects at all from smoking so heavily, so why would I want to give up?
My first inclination that I might have been overdoing it came after a game of football with friends one evening. We only played for around an hour, but by the time we had finished I felt like someone was crushing my lungs. I simply could not breathe. Not thinking smoking had anything do with it, as it was the first time this had happened, I went to the Doctor.Immediately I was sent for scans at the hospital, which was worrying. Nothing came as a bigger shock that two weeks later, however, when I went to discuss my results.“One more game of football away from a massive heart attack or a stroke” were the only words that really made any sense. The rest was all “Doctor speak” to me. What I did do upon leaving the surgery in a state approaching shock was to get some information on e-cigarettes.
I already knew about nicotine patches and other similar products, and none of them seemed like much of a good idea to me. E-cigarettes it would be then, and I ordered myself a set online. It arrived a few days later and immediately I began to use it. People say giving up smoking is hard, but let me tell you, those words from the Doctor’s mouth probably served to make this the easiest thing I ever did. Despite smoking heavily for so long, I began to feel better after only a week or two on the e-cigarettes.
Why was this? · All I was taking in was nicotine. No smoke, no tar, no nothing. The coughing was quite serious as my lungs got fired up again, but after so many years of heavy smoking that is the least to be expected.· Although it took a long time, after a while I was able to reduce my nicotine intake from the e-cigarettes. I still “smoke” them a little now, as I am worried about starting to smoke the real things again should I stop nicotine altogether.
Importantly, I could start exercising. Although I had always looked great, the hidden damage was horrific. I joined the gym and started off walking to get myself going again, and last week I managed to get a game of football in, with no shortage of breath at the end.
E-cigarettes have enabled me to transform my life and, although I feel great, as I did anyway, I am more at peace now knowing that my body is in a much better physiological state than before.
