The best time to quit is now

Being a former smoker and quitting almost 2 years ago,I know how awful it is to smoke and how hard it can be to quit.

I was a smoker for 35 years and it’s crazy to say but I hated it yet thought it would be to hard to quit.

My daughter bought me an e cig called a white cloud to get me off the Kool 100s. In 2010.

It helped.

Seeing my husband recover from a heart attack and stent surgery was my cure in 2016.

( he quit and I quit)

These things stink.

Now they have pens and vape cigs that look like a flash drive.

They continue more poisonous nicotine that a cigarette.

If you use any of these stop. Yes it may be hard for a bit. But the cravings disappear and soon you will also find the smell horrible.

Save your life now.

Here’s a link below on Electronic vs Tobacco

Electronic Cigarettes vs. Tobacco

The main ingredient in electronic cigarettes is nicotine. Nicotine has been linked to causing your adrenal glands to work harder due to its stimulatory effect on cortisol and adrenaline. Both of these stress-related hormones upsurge your heart rate, drastically constrict your arteries, worsen your blood lipid levels, intensify insulin resistance, and boost your blood pressure. Nicotine has also been found to increase the risk of cancer, as it interferes with apoptosis and promotes the growth of new blood vessels, also known as angiogenesis, a building block of tumors.

In addition to getting nicotine from electronic cigarettes, most studies have found that you will most likely end up using tobacco at the same time, as a matter of practical reality for most people.

Using electronic cigarettes could help reduce the number of cigarettes you use, which alone decreases the risk of cancer, heart conditions, and many other conditions. The use of them has also helped many people succeed in quitting smoking, more so than people who decided to quit by trying to go cold turkey, which is not recommended if you are already a long-term smoker and have AFS.

However, smoking electronic cigarettes is not in itself good for you. Having prolonged stress causes heart conditions of many kinds, and adding electronic cigarettes to your routine only speeds the development of those conditions.

Electronic not the best way to beat stress
