Smoking, but not as you know it …
Having sustained a compound fracture of the wrist which was not showing any signs of wanting to knit back together, my consultant decided that an operation, involving a bone graft and a screw was necessary.
However, as I am a smoker, he explained that taking in carbon monoxide was inhibiting the healing process and asked if I could give up. If I could, he would perform the operation within the week.
I have been meaning to switch to electronic cigarettes for a while and this seemed like the right time.
I ordered a kit and stopped smoking “proper” cigarettes. The operation was performed and I wandered around the corridors puffing on my electronic cigarette – no one objected!
A few days later, my mother was rushed into hospital with a blood clot in her lung. Immediately, she was told to stop smoking, not easy for an 88-year-old who has smoked for most of her life.
When she was discharged, I gave her one of my electronic cigarettes.
Mum has not smoked a “proper” cigarette since.
I did smoke one, and found it rather nasty!
And we are saving a small fortune!
And I feel healthier!
Should I plug the brand I am using?
What the heck:
If you are a smoker who wants to give up, or is even thinking about it, or if you are a smoker who wants to save some money, take a look.
