They Found Lung Cancer And He Still Can’t Stop Smoking


My grandfather was a smoker for 20 years before he finally kicked the terrible habit. For the next twenty years he remained cigarette free. They say you don’t just quit smoking. It’s a life long battle. I think this must be true because it only took one cigarette. Now he has been trying to quit, again, for the last 5 years. A few month ago my grandfather was in the hospital for lump on his shoulder, it turned out to be cancerous. As they tested him for this they also found two black spots on his lungs.I can’t tell you the anger I felt, especially as he sat at the table smoking away while my grandmother explained this to our family.

My great grandfather, his father, died of a stroke less than 5 years earlier – he had been a smoker for over 40 years.  And as angry as I am at him, I also know there is a part of him that “can’t” quit. Now more than ever, as the stress of what is happening to his body sinks in he craves nicotine. Our family is determined to help him quit. So I started researching options. There is SO much out there -patches, pills and gum  to name a few. There are some that let you smoke for the first week, some for a day or two. Then there is what I consider an entire class of their own, electronic cigarettes.

I’ll be honest when I first saw them I thought they were silly. I mean who is really going to sit there with this fake cigarette in there mouth, providing no nicotine and have it actually work?! After reading the V2 Cigs Review, and seeing over twenty 4 and 5 star reviews I realized I was a little too quick at the draw.

V2 Cigs

If you’re interested in electronic cigarettes check out the reviews offered on, they’re arguably one of the largest sources of electronic cigarette reviews. I learned so much from their website. Electronic Cigarettes are so much more than just props. There are four options for the amount of nicotine in your V2 Cigs cartridge: Zero, Light (6mg), Medium (12mg) and Full (18mg). You can also get different blends and flavors. The V2 Standard Kit comes with an automatic and a manual battery, USB Smart Charger, wall adapter and ten flavor cartridges. The Ultimate Starter Kit ramps this up to 25 cartridges, a car charger, a USB-powered battery, another battery, a metal carry case, a portable charging case and a lanyard.

I don’t know who invented the V2 Cigs but they are geniuses! Of all the “Stop Smoking” products I’ve encountered, this seems to be the first that offers a well rounded approach and can be custom tailored to my grandfathers needs and taste. Best of all, they’re way cheaper than cigarettes – even before their new offer. Right now you can save 20% storewide if you use code REVIEW20 at checkout. They even offer free shipping!


I won’t lie, after I read the article I teared up and then I shared it with my family. Maybe this will be the item that helps my grandpa kick his habit. I want him to be around for my daughters next birthday and I want him to see the rest of his grandchildren born. I want him to be cancer free and smoke free too.

This post brought to you by V2 Cigs however, all opinions are my own.
