    How I Quit Smoking in 1 Month

    If any of you are like me, you probably had trouble quitting smoking and have tried more than once.

    The very first time I tried to quit cold turkey I would get headaches, have trouble sleeping, and was very easily aggravated.

    Eventually I went back to smoking and struggled to quit for years. Early last year I decided to stop into a local smoke shop and get some information about ecigs and purchasing an electronic starter kit. I went home, researched the best reviewed ecig companies who offered different levels of liquid and finally purchased my starter kit and 4 bottles from a company called Clean Smoke USA. You can visit their site here http://cleansmoke.com . The kit came with two ecigs, a charger, replacement atomizer heads and a USB port. I also purchased 4 bottles of their USA made e juice. The bottles of liquid actually allowed me to start with 26 ml of nicotine, then 18ml, then 9ml, and finally, 0ml of nicotine.

    It turned out to be an extremely easy system to follow and it only took me one month to stop completely. I smoked Marlboro Reds for years and read it would be better to switch over to American Spirit because there is less additives and it is easier to make the switch to ecigs from them. After about 2 packs of the full bodied American Spirit I took the challenge and made the switch to ecigs. Below was my weekly regimen:

    Week 1: 26ml USA Blend (I smoked it all day and most of the night)

    Week 2: 18ml USA Blend (I would try to smoke it like it was a real cigarette - went outside, after food, etc.)

    Week 3: 9ml USA Blend (I only smoked it socially or occasionally after food or with coffee)

    Week 4: 0ml USA Blend (Smoked it only when I really felt stressed or was really craving it)

    During the last week of smoking the 0ml I realized that I didn't really need it and only had cravings a couple of times throughout the day. Thanks to Clean Smoke I was able to diminish my dependance on nicotine and live a smoke free life.

    I kept my ecig and purchased some 0ml flavored e juice just to have in case I ever get a craving. Every once in a while I will take a couple draws off it just for fun or to show friends or family how I quit.

    Hope this helps!
