After smoking for 30yrs & trying numerous times to quit. My husband & I have been smoke free now for 8wks. Since getting the atomizer vapor cigarette. Already stepping down to zero nicotine level from 18 down to 8 with little to no side effects. Didn't realize what my senses were missing. Breathing so much better.
