Special to SEGAZINE
Logan Collier started smoking when he turned 18, a habit he picked up bumming Marlboro Reds and Camel Filters from friends in Augusta.
He continued for about a year, but not long after his freshman year in college, he tried an electronic cigarette, or e-cig, in search of a less dirty way to satisfy his nicotine cravings during work.
Although the experience was somewhat unsatisfying at first and sent him scrambling for a pack of Marlboro Reds, he gave the look-alike cigarette product a second shot.
Collier said he hasn’t smoked a tobacco cigarette since.
