An ex-smokers switch to E-cigarettes

I started using SMOKO almost a year ago and was able to do things i was able, here is my story.

I guess I should start with how I started smoking, at the age of 14 I started stealing cigarettes from my brothers room, being young  I thought it made me look “cool” and “edgy”, I am fairly sure I am the only one who thought that. Looking a pale shade of green while suppressing a cough is hardly the new sexy.

I remember the day I was “hooked” on cigarettes. Waking up one morning I had a nasty feeling in my stomach, possibly from my fantastically healthy diet of meat and chips I lived on. I convinced myself this feeling was because I was now a proud smoker and I must be addicted, after all I had been smoking for a few days now and that’s how addiction works right?

Lets skip forward though the last of my school years, all of my collage years and a large part of my working life to the age of 26 when I finally quit smoking. It all started with one simple statement “I would quite like to do tough mudder one day”, for those of you that don’t know tough mudder is a half marathon with obstacles designed to test you physically and mentally.

Something known by very few outside my social circle know is never tell John, a fitness freak friend, you want to do something like that after a bottle of whisky.

Two days later John had me on a 10k fitness program at the start I could barely run 1 kilometre without nearing passing out, at this point John would stop and drop to the floor doing press-ups while I regained my breath.

After a week of this failure and humiliation I knew what I had to do, I had to stop smoking or kill John, the latter being easier but less socially acceptable I decided on the former. It was my girlfriend who couldn’t stand my company anymore after two days cold turkey; she took me to a SMOKO Kiosk and got me my first E-Cigarette.

It’s now nearly a year later and I completed Tough Mudder,I feel better in myself and I don’t smell like a neglected ashtray anymore.

I owe it all to SMOKO and their fantastic electronic Cigarettes (P.S try the banana flavour it’s my favourite).

I hope my story helps to inspire people to try switching to an E-Cig.
