I smoked steady for over 27 yrs in October of 2010 I went into respiratory failure and was on life support for 9 days I stopped smoking for 9 months and even though I almost died I still struggled with the addiction of smoking ….. I started smoking again and was heading right back to a road that would have lead to death and my 9 yr old son needed his father to be around!! but a friend who had quit smoking cigarettes which we all know have over 4 thousand chemicals in them tar and large amounts of Nicotine , are the cause of thousands of deaths yearly due to accidental fires and overall hamper the quality of life to smokers and also innocent non smokers due to second hand exposure! Well long story short I purchased a vape kit and promised my son I would never smoke again, well for over a year now I am cigarettes free and have taken my nicotine level due to the freedom of choice from a 24 mg liquid to only 6mg and I was able to do it at my own pace and have had amazing results of success I don’t stink like smoke anymore I still have lung damage and hope to be vape and nicotine free soon but it will be by my own free will at my pace and without some government official or some selfish lobbyist working for tobacco companies who doesn’t care about how my son will feel if I kept smoking and died without a chance to fight back my smoking addiction or has no concern for my health , just for how much money the tobacco company pays them to stand before congress and bash the very product that I feel has given me another chance at life…….. So please don’t take our right to live away by trying to regulate things beyond where you should I can understand trying to make things safe but let’s not let greed take the lead for once !!!
