vaping. What a revolutionary thing!! In every sense of the word it truly is a disruptive technology. Nothing is more true day after day. I pray that it all makes sense in the end. I really, really do. For the love of all that is COMMON SENSE. I started smoking traditional tobacco cigarettes more than 13 years ago when I was 16. Like every child before me I taunted and shamed my parents for smoking cigarettes and here I was, the day before my 16th birthday, having my first. It didn’t take long before I was smoking a pack a day myself. This went on for 12 years, and never once did I try to quit. I started with menthol, and eventually turned to parliament lights after being totally turned off by menthol suddenly. The only time I ever quit successfully was when I injured my hand and was hospitalized for a week. A week. That was the only time I managed to ever quit smoking in the 12 years I was involved. NOTHING. ELSE. ON. THE. MARKET. has helped me as much as vaping has. I was first exposed to vaping through convenient store set-ups. Blu disposables, to be exact. Just like ANY other REAL vaper will tell you, they were terrible and not effective in the least (I still think those companies purposely make them awful so u go back to cigarettes- call me crazy). They were bad, and I only used one once while flying so I didn’t go crazy. Cut to November 2013, my friend stops by with an ego/iclear setup and all it took was one puff. It was extremely satisfying, providing an experience that carried an immense potential and aid for me to quit cigarettes. The next day, I was at my local shop buying a set-up. After some education and about an hours time, I had quit cigarettes for good. After leaving cigarettes for good I have never looked back. I started with a tobacco flavored juice at 18mg/ml nicotine strength, and in one years time have dropped to 12mg/ml nicotine strength, sticking with citrus-based FRUIT flavors. It’s all I like, as a responsible 28yr old adult. This, “Flavors are marketed towards kids” thing is WAY off. Look at the wine&spirits industry. One of the top-selling pinacle flavors is BIRTHDAY CAKE.?!? And they give us a hard time. Pretty unbelievable. Anyway, I vape fruity juices exclusively, and I have also never felt better. I can smell again, taste things again, BREATHE again and hold by breathe again! God I can sing again!!! I honestly feel like I have quit all together. My quality of life has improved 10 fold. This REALLY is a technology that has an extreme potential to improve public health and also to drastically reduce the number of people suffering from or struggling with cigarette use. REAL studies are being done (finally) by people who actually understand this industry and how these devices work, and they’re proving to be LIGHT YEARS less harmful than traditional cigarettes. Only time will tell if we prevail. All I know is vaping saved my life, and I know it’s potential to save others is INCREDIBLE. The world needs to wake up and accept this as the true blessing it is, not the curse they’re making it seem like.
