This month is a really big anniversary for us! It’s been two years since my husband gave up his two pack a day cigarette habit and switched to electronic cigarettes. I am so proud of him! I really can’t say enough good things about electronic cigarettes and how they have changed things for our family. One of my favorite things is that my house no longer stinks like cigarette smoke! Instead, it smells like strawberries, or caramel apples, or other lovely things like that. It’s so nice to walk in the door at the end of a long day and not smell nasty cigarette smoke. I feel like our house is much cleaner, too. There are no ashes or cigarette butts laying around, and I got rid of all of the ashtrays a long time ago. Now, my husband has a little cabinet filled with all of his E cigs and supplies, and they are out of the way and discreet. Much better!
We have saved so much money in the past two years as well! We were even able to take an extra vacation last year, just with the extra money! I really can’t tell you guys how happy I am about the changes that my hubby has made in the past couple of years. Another thing that has been great is the real sense of community that we have found through the e-cigarette community. My husband recently went to Chicago for an electronic cigarette convention/meetup, and there were literally thousands of people there! He also started a Facebook group which has now grown to over 3000 members, and he has made friends from all over the world. There are people on there who use the disposable cartridges, like the ones you will find at places like 21stcenturysmoke.com, all the way up to “professionals” who build their own electronic cigarettes and make their own juice. There really is something for everyone!
All in all, making the switch from traditional cigarettes to electronic cigarettes has been a great one for my family. The changes that it has made in my family are way more than just having no ashes around the house or having our clothes not smell like smoke anymore. I am very proud of my husband for the changes he has made and our family is much happier after we made the switch!
