Kevin smoked 40 - 50 cigarettes a day but quit in just one day after picking up an e-cigarette
Kevin Billington was just 14 when his smoking habit began but decided enough was enough, 43 years later. He picked up an e-cig from his local Totally Wicked store in Eastbourne and hasn’t smoked a cigarette since.
Smoking can be a very hard battle and, at times, it can seem that no matter what you try, nothing will help you quit. This was Kevin’s situation. As an asthmatic, he knew he needed to give up. Kevin tried Nicotine Replacement Therapies, acupuncture and even hypnosis. None of these methods worked, so Kevin gave vaping a try after hearing about e-cigs on the television.
Kevin’s Vaping Success Story
In 2011, I purchased my first e-cig after seeing them on breakfast TV. It was early days for e-cigarettes. I had the ones with replacement liquid-filled cartridges that spilt if you tipped it up, so they just sat in the drawer. However, later that year I was diagnosed with COPD so I knew I had to give up. I visited the Totally Wicked store in Eastbourne and purchased my first proper e-cig.
Since making the switch to vaping, Kevin Billington’s progressive COPD has stabilised. He explained that prior to making the switch, his smoking habit was making him feel self-conscious as smoking became more socially unaccepted. He is 66 years old now and expressed that he no longer feels like a social outcast. What’s more, the switching process was instant for Kevin.
I was a smoker of 40-50 a day but haven’t had a cigarette since the day I first used my e-cig. Although it did take a while to find the right flavour liquid (which for me was Titan Red Cow 18mg). I have a total of six Totally Wicked e-cigarettes and now cannot stand the smell of smoke.
Kevin’s story shows that no matter how long you’ve been smoking, vaping can still be the answer. Even if you’ve tried other methods to no avail, e-cigarettes are different, as Kevin explained.
