My name is Dot. I used to be a chain smoker. I suffered from pneumonia for a long time which eventually led to a near death experience in 2014. Thank God I lived to tell the tale.

I’m not writing about electronic cigarettes because I use them. I’m merely intrigued at this invention and I wanted to follow its progress in society. After my health scare, I developed a phobia for all things related to cigarettes. I remember how much my family had suffered during those trying times.

This innovation, though it poses lesser threat to people, won’t cure the sickness of addiction. Those who are really keen on quitting shouldn’t be looking for healthier alternatives but to avoid any form of cigarettes entirely.
