I started vaping 4 yrs ago in july. Stuck with my ego style ecig for 3 years. It took me a couple of years to totally quit smoking, but I did it. I smoked 3 packs of marlboro a day, sometimes more, and I really didn’t quit for my health. Just couldn’t afford it. In the last year I have noticed that my skin became healthier, my hair has become fuller again, and grows like it did in my 20s. I can also sing better than ever, higher notes are possible now, and that is a first. No weight gain like I had all the other times I tried to quit, so, big plus!! I use only about 2mg of nicotine to get that throat hit, which just means it feels like I am pulling something into my lungs. My lungs feel great!! I was running back and forth across rugged ground to get to an outdoor wedding because my 1 friend who still smokes and has copd could not make it a 3rd of the way, so I was checking on her by the csr, and I wasn’t even out of breath!! And I am 47. So I have snoked for at least 37 years. Smoked my dad’s cig buts by 10. Yes, that is disgusting, but I was hooked bad!! By 12 yrs old I was ward of the court, so I spent 4 years in and out of group homes, and shelter homes, and I could smoke in them. I had the choice of 70 cents a day for chores, or a pack of my favorite cigs. So I can literally say my government hooked me on cigs. This is truth, and if anyone looked into this, I am sure they would see thousands of packs of cigs given to minors. So the bottom line is that I have a new , but healthier vise that gets me through my day. No thanks to any government participation.
