I have been a smoker for 12 years, and have a minor prenatal heart disease. This combo is dangerous and has left me to try many alternatives to smoking. Nothing on the market has worked for me – I.e gum, patches, inhalers. One year ago I started using e-cigs it has helped me to lower my nicotine intake to almost 0. At this point I use e cigs at a low 6mg or 0mg at occasions that would cause me to smoke socially and has been an amazing success. Not only has the e CIG been helping me as a whole, it has opened me up to a community of people that are in the same stage of relief. I’m also a collector of mechanical e cigs known as “mods” and this hobby has kept my focus off of tobacco products and enjoying the collecting of beautiful harmless devices such as these. Knowing that the possibility of these “mods” being deemed illegal based on some literature included in the proposed regulation utterly saddens me as they are essentially the same devices that would remain legal such as the njoy ecig made by a large tobacco company. Furthermore this “mod” industry has created many jobs and companies where government has failed to. Regulation for safety of the people is acceptable, regulation to benefit big tobacco is appalling. We have found a way to live tobacco free, please don’t take that away or us!
