Asking a heavy smoker to reduce smoking is like asking a person with a sweet tooth to reduce desserts. The good news for heavy smokers is that, for the first time, reducing hot smoking is possible thanks to e-cigarettes.
Before my experience with e-cigarettes, I thought it was impossible for a heavy smoker to switch from one pack of cigarettes a day to, say, two cigarettes or a cigar a day. I quit smoking cigarettes altogether because I switched to smoking e-cigarettes. Now, once in a while I have a cigar before bed. Smoking a cigar occasionally is a great reduction in hot smoking; compare it with the pack, pack and a half, a day that I used to have before switching to e-cigarettes.
Conventional cigarettes ( regular cigarettes) are the fast food of smoking: you can have one and you forget you had it until you reach for another automatically. It’s so easy to slip and start chain-smoking. I’m happy I’m no longer addicted to them.
