Dan's Story Of Switching To OK Vape
FORMER 20-a-day smoker Dan McGlynn gave up tobacco overnight by switching to electronic cigarettes – and found that one unexpected benefit is that he no longer suffers from bad hangovers.
Dan, 31, was previously plagued by headaches and a horrible taste in his mouth following nights out when he drank alcohol.
He revealed: "When I had a few drinks during a night out I tended to smoke a lot more and the next morning I would pay the price.
"I’d wake up with a horrible taste in my mouth but now any occasional hangovers that I might get are much milder since I gave up smoking tobacco. The symptoms are less intense because you not are putting tobacco smoke into your body.
"Before if I went out and had a drink I would have a bad head and a horrible taste but now I feel cleaner and fresher."
Unlike conventional cigarettes, the vapour created by the OK Vape Cigalike contains no harmful tar.
Dan, who works as a project manager for a broadband services provider, tried several different types of electronic cigarette when he gave up tobacco two years ago, but chose to stick with OK Vape because of their pleasant flavour and affordable price.
He was previously spending around £200 a month on tobacco, compared with around £30 a month on e-cig refills and accessories – a saving of approximately £2,000 a year.
He said: "I’ve noticed that I have lot more cash in my pocket which I can now spend on things that I enjoy like nights out or holidays, which is nice. The taste of the OK refills is also very good. I use the menthol flavour.
"I’d smoked tobacco since my teens but I wanted give up for health reasons because I was starting to feel unfit.
"I tried to quit before by going cold turkey but I only managed to last six months. By using electronic cigarettes I gave up overnight and stayed off tobacco permanently. I’ve not had a tobacco cigarette since."
Dan says he has noticed an improvement in his general fitness since he made the switch.
He said: "I feel generally fitter in terms of lung health.
"The cigalike e-cigarette is also very convenient because you can use them indoors in places like restaurants and bars. I can also use them in the home and the car without having to worry about the smell of smoke.
"I previously didn’t smoke in the house, whereas now I can use electronic cigarettes without having to worry. I have also used them on flights when I have travelled for work or holiday.
"I would recommend the OK Vape e-cigarette and refills to anyone who wants to give up smoking tobacco."
