Who’s Dawn?

⇐   Hi! That’s me, Dawn,        ⇐   over there.               

As you can see I am just an everyday person, and like a lot of everyday people, I struggled with tobacco cigarettes. You see, burning tobacco and I have a love/hate relationship. I hate how it makes me feel, BUT I love how it makes me feel. If you are not currently a smoker or have never been a smoker, then you cannot possibly understand the depth of this love/hate relationship. I am not sure about everyone else, but for me, Nicotine keeps me from saying or doing things that I may later regret. It keeps me calm and collected when I need to stay focused. It also relaxes me and helps me unwind from a long day.

          Notice how I say nicotine, that’s because it’s the nicotine that helps me, not the tobacco. (And certainly not the other 600 ingredients that big tobacco industry uses.) The tobacco and paper parts were just the delivery mechanism; it’s always been the nicotine I needed. Now, is nicotine good for me? NOPE, in fact, it can be bad for me, but so is soda and coffee, but I love that stuff too. I have to say though, that when by 30 years old I had to keep a nebulizer in my home to give myself emergency breathing treatments, that love/hate relationship was feeling very one-sided on the love part. When I started using my rescue inhaler nearly every day I knew I was in trouble. I watched my grandmother die of COPD and to tell you the truth, I was afraid that would be me soon if something did not change.

        Okay, so I hear all of you non-smokers (and maybe some ex-smokers) screaming at me….then stop smoking!!! Good point. The thing is I tried, I really, really did. I tried with Chantix. I tried with gums and the patches. I tried signing up for help lines and support systems. I tried everything I could get my hands on, I really tried. So what’s a girl to do? Cold turkey? Sure, and who’s got the bail money?

          Good point. The thing is I tried, I really, really did. I tried with Chantix. I tried with gums and the patches. I tried signing up for help lines and support systems. I tried everything I could get my hands on, I really tried. So what’s a girl to do? Cold turkey? Sure, and who’s got the bail money? Me without my nicotine is verging on social irresponsibility.  So what I am left with is either die young a horrible death or quit cold turkey and crave nicotine the rest of my miserable, all-be it longer, life.

        I have known plenty of people who talked about craving a burning cigarette more than 10 years after quitting. That did not sound good to me, so I was stuck between a rock and a hard place.

        Thankfully, my non-smoking husband never gave up on finding me options. After years of trying everything out there, he came home with a little bag full of something he called an E-cigarette. I figured he had finally gone crazy. I was even irritated at him for buying it but I had to give it a try. That was October of 2013. (For math lazy people like myself that’s over a year and a half ago! WOOT! (Update: it’s now almost 4 years ago and I still love my A Clean Cigarette!)

       So I did not stop getting my nicotine, but I upgraded delivery mechanisms. What did that do for me? Well, I have not used my nebulizer since late January 2014, and I would have a hard time finding my emergency inhaler as of right now. It has been a long, long time since I have needed it.

Is that because I started on an E-cigarette? Nope, not in my opinion. Like I say in my blog, nothing you inhale besides clean air is good for you, and I really believe that. I believe that my health benefits are because I put down the burning tobacco. I believe I would get even healthier if  I stopped smoking everything, and someday thanks to the walk down option that electronic delivery methods can provide, that may happen. Until then I am thankful to A Clean Cigarette for giving me options, and this industry has turned into my passion! So I hope you enjoy the blog, and I hope you tell your friends and loved ones to come check us out. In the meantime, I will be here spreading the word about this revolutionary new product that’s main ingredient for me was HOPE.

      BYE!
