An eight-year-long smoker has produced a detailed report of how an e-cigarette helped him stop smoking traditional tobacco.

Worcester News Reporter Chris Plant was given an e-cigarette to try to kick the habit and got there in the end.

“I had been a smoker for eight years before I thought it was time to kick the habit,” explains Plant, writing for Worcester News. “I wasn’t overly convinced about it at first, but decided to give it a go.”

Plant explained that he most craved a cigarette when he normally smoked one. These times were the morning, lunchtime and bedtime.

“These were the best fags of the day, especially the one before bed… Ahh, I feel reminiscent just thinking about it while I write this.”

After a week of using the e-cigarette profusely, he felt proud of his achievement. Then, he described the second week as “very easy”.

Plant is now six weeks without a cigarette and very happy about that. Although he now believes he has an e-cigarette addiction, he’s now relishing that challenge.

“It’s done exactly what it’s meant to, so I would definitely recommend it to anyone who’s thinking about quitting.”

Similarly, an 82-year-old American by the name of Mr Hoover has produced a heart felt account of how “e-cigarettes saved his life“.

In a letter to the Des Moines Register, Mr Hoover talks about bringing his 65 year smoking habit to an end. He also recommends a “common sense” approach to the use of e-cigarettes.
