4 1/2 years ago I became aware of e-cigs. I thought they were a new toy. I had no intention whatsoever of quitting smoking. I played with them for 5 weeks. For the last three days of that time I had not had a tobacco cigarette without realizing it. When I thought of it I ran outside to light on up. Worst tasting thing I had ever experienced. I through it away and have not had any tobacco since. Vaping a e-cig is just a better experience. Within months my breathing & sleeping improved. Over next many months food began to taste good again. I savored my food more and thus ate less. I lost weight. Every aspect of my health has improved as a result of switching.
As a mature adult I have the right to make my own informed choice as to what I use for recreational enjoyment. I will continue to make my own choices regardless of that the government tries to do.
