Aside from the headaches and occasional bad stomach cramps I am now finally smoke free after 14 years. Was a bit of discomfort worth it? YES! and knowing what i know i would do it again in a heartbeat. I am one of 9 friends who have done it, only 2 of us had any side effects ( mine and a bit of insomnia ) thats it. Nothing has ever been this easy, HIGHLY recommend it.

I was miserable, and my BP was through the roof (175/110). She wanted me to go to ER, but i ... Show Full Comment
