My Personal Quitting Smoking Journal Blog - Backstory

Hello all and welcome to my daily blog about quitting smoking using E-Cigs. I'm am 35 years old and have been smoking since I was 15. Twenty years strait, about 15-20 cigarettes per day on average. I have quit a few times during the twenty years, using the patch mostly. I once made it almost 6 months smoke free, but eventually began smoking again.

I have heard of E-Cigs a few times in the past, but they looked like just another quit smoking gimmick; so I didn't think twice about them. But, then I started watching some reviews of them on you tube, and was getting intrigued by them. Nothing but positive stories out there, I couldn't find anyone who tried E-Cigs, then when back to tobacco cigarettes.  So, I starting poking around the net checking them out. Soon after, I was catching up with an old friend on Face Book and I mentioned that I was interested in quiting smoking using E-Cigs. This friend of mine that says, he actually works for a manufacture of E-Cigs! He ends up express mailing me a couple samples (a 901 auto unit and a 510 manual) with some blank cartridges and 2 bottles of E-Liquid (both tobacco flavor, a medium 18mg and a high 24mg)

I continue to research E-Cigs as I await the few days for my sample E-Cigs to arrive by mail. I am getting more and more excited as I start to really believe that these things might actually work and get me off these nasty tobacco cigarettes.

Nicotine - All The Facts and Benifits ?

I thought, since Nicotine is the one thing from a tobacco cigarette that you still do when you smoke E-Cigs; I would really like to know all the facts on nicotine. After searching around the net and reading many sources, I found this one to be the most concise:
