How should we identify you when we post your testimonial? If you are willing to use your real name and have your story clearly identified with you, that could be beneficial. It might make your testimony seem more “real” and reduce the risk of skeptics claiming that these stories are not true. It might also be useful if you also specify your city and state and online alias you typically use (for example, John Smith (johnvapes) from Philadelphia, PA.). However, all of this is totally optional. You can enter anything you want, including a random string of characters.

CONFIDENTIAL: If you chose not to use your real name in the previous question, but are willing to share your name (and any online pseudonyms you might use) with us, please enter that information here. This will help us avoid duplication should we attempt to import other published testimonials into our collection. What you enter here will NOT be posted or shared with anyone for any purpose.

CONFIDENTIAL: Please enter your email address. This will NOT be posted with your testimonial. We will not share this with anyone or put you on any other mailing list. If you are not a member of CASAA and would like to join our email list for important political action and other updates (joining CASAA requires nothing more than joining our mailing list), you can do so here.

CONFIDENTIAL: Please tell us your gender.

CONFIDENTIAL: Please tell us your age.

CONFIDENTIAL: Please tell us which country in which you live.

You are free to choose your own story and include or exclude any details as you like. However, if you would like a few suggestions about what is useful to include to make these stories valuable, we suggest you consider answering some or all of these questions:

  • How long did you smoke?
  • How long ago did you start using a smoke-free alternative?
  • Exactly what smoke-free product(s) do you use (for instance, disposable e-cigarettes, mods, snus; what nicotine strength), and if this changed over time, how has it changed?
  • Do you still smoke at all (and if so, how much have you cut down)?
  • Did you both smoke and use the smoke-free product for a time before quitting smoking entirely (and if so, how long), or did you switch immediately? Or did you stop tobacco/nicotine entirely for a while and then start using a low-risk alternative?
  • What methods (NRT, Chantix, counseling, etc.) did you use to try to quit smoking before switching to a smoke-free alternative? How long were you able to go without smoking using these other methods before starting again?
  • What changes in the quality of your life (both positive and negative) have you noticed since adopting the smoke-free alternative?

Please tell us your story of quitting or reducing smoking. Feel free to copy and paste from a version of this you have already written, or to write it in a word processor and paste it here. There is no maximum length. When you are happy with what you have entered, please submit it. Please remember that by submitting this, you are agreeing to have it posted online.

Note: You need to enter your entire story at once – you cannot start it and come back. We suggest writing the text in a word processor and pasting it in when you are finished (especially if you have a risk of your browser shutting down before you finish).
