E-Smokes are a game changer! I won't get into the details of when I started smoking, or how long. But I can tell you about the figures and the
money I am saving by changing over to Vape stick. I made a capital purchase of 120$ to get the Vape Stick, filters, heads, and the liquid. That
lasted me 2 months. I spend now 15-25$ a month compared to 2 packs a day at 6$ each, 12$ a day. 28 day months, that was 336$!!! 4,300K a year just
on smokes.. Crazy, I am so happy to have that money for other things than ASH.
I am discreet with my ecig. So I do not run into any issues personally. They are trying to make an issue of them here in the USA too. Big Tobacco
is taking a big hit, and they want in on this. They are not going to let some of these private little time shops ruin their whole Cartel. Make no
mistake, Big Tobacco is no different than many other private interest groups are Cartels masked as corporations.
I am happy I will be done with smoking once I go through the process of lowering my dose of nicotine. After all that is the physical withdrawals I
face with not smoking, compounded with the mental addiction. But I will still smoke a cigar now and then.
There is a big shift happening with smoking. Id rather smoke 420, than smoke Big Tobacco products.
I am happy for my local cook. He makes all his own juices, they are very high quality safe stuff. You have to TRUST your chemist. If Big Tobacco
get their hands on this, they will put the same additives they put into their other products! My chemist friend, adds nothing but flavoring elements,
and nicotine MG, and elements they use for nebulizer products. Its a non harmful water vapor!
Last point I would like to make here is this. So many people bitch and moan about how bad 2nd hand smoke is. And those truth commercials, and smoke
"truth" campaigns. They seem to totally ignore the real pollution all around them! Local industry plants, every local road that those same people
drive around pumping crap out as 2nd hand toxins. What the hell people. Why pick on smokers, when they pollute your water supplies, Food sources,
and the very air you breath! They claim 2nd hand smoke is so deadly.. That is spinning something so well to favor them.
To note-- As a smoker, I know smoke stinks, and it is not pleasant to the pallet when you are eating, I would always respect others and not smoke
inside their homes, biz, and places we all eat. I thought that was fair.
But no you people want to treat us like the problem, when the real problem is all the other stuff they poison you with, and its not just physical
poison, its mental poison too.
