Thanks man. I hope we can all drop these death sticks in the near future here.
I've been smoking for 10 years now. I used to smoke Marlboro Reds but when they switched to the new fire safe cigarettes I couldn't do it anymore. Felt like my lungs were totally clogged with cotton and I was coughing shit up like crazy and could barely breathe. I switched to Marlboro Lights and was fine for a year or so but that just ended up in the full rejection I experienced with the Reds. Now I've been smoking Ultra-Lights and am hitting that same rejection point. Can barely breathe and am coughing up shit constantly.
I actually did quit for a little bit when I was still in the Army. I enrolled in a clinical study that was a combination of hospital grade nicotine patches and mandatory phone counseling once a week. I quit for about three weeks and I still can't believe the night and day difference in how much better I felt. It was INSANE. I can't wait to get back to that point again. From what I've been hearing and reading... since the USA made liquid/gel is extremely simple and has no harmful chemicals other than the nicotine itself your lungs actually do start the healing process the same as if you just quit completely.
