First of all, it's my 53 birthday party, second of all it's the day I decided to quit smoking for good!
My friends had all gathered for a Florida Flamingo party and proclaimed me "Queen Bird" for the day. They also gave me the Gift of Life, an ecigarette.
Not that I haven't quit smoking before, I have been nicotine patched and gummed, hypnotized, drugged and acupunctured like a pin cushion to no avail....
I'd quit, gain 25 pounds and then relapse to the horrifying conclusion of now being OVERWEIGHT and smoking.
I had been smoking since I was 10 years old, so I had 45 years of rock hard experience in the field. I'm sure I personally made a "Tobacco Baron" or two rich in my lifetime.
Now, I realize this is starting to sound like a sales pitch and you may be wondering what it is I have to sell but really, I don't have anything to sell, I just want to share my experience with other Ladies who may be thinking real hard about quitting and changing to ecigs, but don't know how to go about it successfully.
I will sell ad space on my site just to keep my expenses down but I'm not in the ecigarette business and I don't want to be, I just want to there there for women who are going through the same thing and are feeling a bit lost, as I was.

I want to share my experiences and hear your stories, and maybe together we can move on to a better, smoke free life. Just like no woman can go on a diet or go to the bathroom alone without her friends, no woman can make the personal decision to quit smoking after decades of self abuse and loathing without a friend who has been there reaching out and assuring her it will be OK.
I'm not really going to favor one brand of ecigarette over another, but I will be recommending the best way, (in my experience), to successfully use these products to get away from the horrors of smoking and move on to a safer nicotine delivery system, (much like the patch and nicotine gum), that will get you away from the thousands of carcinogenic chemicals in a burning cigarette and move you into a world of flavored liquid vapor that you can precisly control your nicotine intake, reducing it until you can walk away from cigarettes forever with very little stress and no weight gain.
Sounds like a miracle? It is. Can anyone do it? maybe, if you are realistic, take you time, are kind to yourself and follow some basic principals that will lead you to greater success.
Even if you have tried the readily available ecigarettes on the market now and available at convenience stores and gas stations, you haven't realized the wealth of products out there that are just a little out of your way and actually do work.
The most important part of this blog is to talk back to me.
