Smoked cigarettes for 35 years. Enjoyed it. Never wanted to give up nicotine and there was never an alternative. Started vaping 8 months ago and have not touched a cig since. The health benefits are evident but I see them as a side-effect… the key here is that I now have an effective substitute that is appealing, enjoying and much, much safer. I vape nicotine at 50mg and use a variety of flavours. I see these as vital to the success of vaping as nicotine use is dependent upon personal choices. If it’s too weak, or tastes awful, as NRT products are, it will NOT be effective as an alternative.
