Its very rare that I post something on Land Surveyors United which does not directly relate to land surveying, but I imagine there are several hundred surveyors on the network who smoke cigarettes so I'm going to put this out there. One week ago today, I stopped smoking...forever. And if you'll take a second and read how, you may be able to as well.
The story you are about to read is both true and well worth my time writing so that you might consider the same, so hopefully well worth yours.
The Short Story
Last weekend, I visited the local flea market and met Heather and Ernie, a married couple who once worked in the construction industry who had recently made the quest to help others stop smoking their full-time job. They are saving lives with their company Empire ECigs which sells electronic cigarettes and have effectively changed my life for the better.
Ok, perhaps some of you have heard of or even tried ecigs, but think the idea is odd to imagine taking the place of something as wonderful as a cigarette. In the woods, on the street, after dinner and if you're like me (or used to be) everytime you're on the phone- you have to have a cig. Those of you who know me best know that I do not endorse just any ole thing. And having tried an electronic cigarette before, but not for long. For one, the supply ran out so fast, it became inconvenient. I have found Empire ecigs to be different simply because they give you the amount you need to quit cold turkey. I can say that with 100% certainty that it was the Empire ecig that made me forget the need for another pack of cigs.
Land Surveyors United Members Receive a Special Discount!!!
If you want to seriously consider the possibility of quitting, you may try the exact package i used to quite smoking. It consists of a bundled kit including 3 batteries and enough cartridges to last over a week and a half. I smoked a pack and a half a day. I also come from a long line of smokers. In fact my grandfather smoked close to 5 packs a day, believe it or not.
I asked Ernie and Heather if they might be willing to extend some sort of discount to all of my surveying friends on Land Surveyors United and they have been gracious enough to take $50 off of the $149 bundle which includes Double battery starter kit, usb charger, car charger, wall charger, extra battery and 3 refill cartridges. This is a great kit to begin with and a bundled purchase which WILL help you quit smoking if you give it a try. Each filter cartridge is equivalent to 2 packs of cigarettes. You can charge your batteries either in the work truck or wall charger at home. ALSO, you get a lifetime gaurentee on the batteries so if one should ever fail, Empire Ecigs will send you a replacement at no cost to you, no questions asked. For a hundred bucks, you can't go wrong.
I encourage all of you who wish to kick the habit to give this a try. I do not receive any incentive for telling you so. I merely hope to help extend all of your lives so that we may all have the time to contribute to the history of land surveying here on Land Surveyors United.
If you'd like to give this a try, contact Heather and Ernie and tell them that you are a Land Surveyors United member and receive your megapack for $150 $100. You'll be glad you did.
