Almost a decade ago, my husband quit smoking. No, he was not a heavy smoker( he started smoking five years prior to being married), but he smoked enough to really annoy me. Thus, one day, he announced he was quitting and off he quit cold turkey. He never puffed one cigarette stick since. Not a lot of people can just quit cold turkey and that is why I’m so proud of him. He admits that it was not that easy but his strong determination and will power to wean himself off helped a lot.
Hence, when I told him about the electronic cigarette (the one that looks, feels and tastes like a cigarette or cigar, and delivers all the pleasures of smoking, but it does not contain tobacco, tar or known carcinogens) his face lit up.
No, he is not considering going back to smoking but he is merely looking out for the many who haven’t kicked the habit. He thinks it may be a good alternative to conventional cigarettes sans the health hazard associated with it.
