It is all well and good when we, an e-cigarette company, tell you how e-cigarettes can change your life, but it’s an entirely different story when you hear from someone who actually uses SMOKO. This week we wanted to share one of our customer's experience with SMOKO, and how it helped them stop smoking once and for all.
"I have been with SMOKO e-cigs for three years now and haven't had a real cigarette since then. This has got to be one of the easiest ways to give up! I was a heavy smoker and had smoked for 40+ years, and never thought I would do it. I had tried to give up so many times but found it too hard. Then I discovered SMOKO and it was amazing.
It takes away the cravings and I would never go back to smoking a real cigarette now. It's so much cheaper as well! I know it's scary if you're a long time smoker, the thought of giving up, but I feel so much healthier and have loads of breath when I go out walking.
The only thing I would suggest is if you're going to do it then get rid of the real cigarettes, as when you have a choice we all know which one we would pick. That's how I have succeeded, I dumped the fags and have never looked back. I don't crave for cigarettes as I have all I need, the nicotine, something to hold in my hand, what else do us smokers crave?
Thanks so much SMOKO, for all that and for the fantastic delivery service. I never have to wait more than a couple of days for my nicotine!"
We have all been where Patricia was, wanting to quit cold turkey, and have worked for a while. But then something happened to push us back to smoking. We then try the patches and gum, but they just don't work. This is quite common, with one study saying that you are up to 60% more likely to quit with e-cigarettes then with patches or gum.
The reason for this is not clear, though there are theories. One of the leading theories is that because you're still puffing on something, you're able to make the switch easier. Patches and gum may give you the same amount of nicotine as an e-cigarette, but they don't seem to give the same hand-to-mouth satisfaction.
Patricia also makes a good point about not trying to do both at the same time. It may work at first but it is too easy to fall back into old habits. If for example you're out and your battery runs out of charge, or you forget to bring a spare refill. If you use both then it is too simple to just reach for a cigarette and forget the e-cigarette.
Using both is also nowhere near as good for you as making the switch completely. Recently Cancer Research UK looked into the long term effects of e-cigarettes and cigarettes. They found that although people who use both do get less toxins in their bodies, they still have a much higher percentage of toxins then people who just use e-cigarettes.
But let’s consider the cost of smoking. As Patricia mentioned the cost of cigarettes is huge, after all a pack of cigarettes is almost £10 and set to rise! Switching to e-cigarettes where 200 cigarettes worth of nicotine comes in one box and is only s only £9 (depending on the deal) you can see the difference. In one year you could save over £2500 a year!
Though there has been no definitive answer on how much e-cigarettes can help with your lungs there is plenty of anecdotal evidence to show how much it can help. You don't have to go any further then our own testimonial page to see how much better people, like Patricia, can live their lives with e-cigarettes. After all most e-cigarette users will tell you how much much easier it is to breathe after they made the switch.
If you want to see even more evidence why not look at what our other customers have to say about SMOKO and see how we have changed hundreds of peoples lives.
So if you want to make the switch why not give one of our starter kits a try? For a limited time the are just £5.95 (that's the P&P)!
