First off, I just had to say thank you so much!
So, thanks to the above wonderful mod, I bought the ijust2 by eleaf. I had quit smoking in April, but fell "off the wagon", and was very upset with
myself. Hubby was in the same boat. I had read other vaping threads, and was intimidated by all the things you can do, change, build yourself.
When it arrived, the book sucked, I'm not going to lie. It didn't tell me how to put the liquid in, that it came apart more than when it shipped,
ect. Thank god for youtube. LOL
I know there are debates, regarding safety, attraction to children, and being a better quit smoking tool than other things.
So, here is MY OPINION only:
I think vaping is the best thing to come along for smokers, in years. It has helped me so much. After 3 days, I wasn't even thinking about a
cigarette, like I was 3 months after just quitting. I was a 30 year smoker. I had the lungs of a 60 year old, with the beginnings of COPD.
I am now riding my bike, over a mile, and not even winded.
If vaping does nothing more, then get people off cigs, and outdoors doing more, I say do it.
And personally? I think big pharma and big tobacco will continue to fight the vapor industry. Yes, I know they have their fingers in it, but right
now, there are so many "independents" that costs can be very low and such a big variety. They are going to want to rule, just like they do now, with
cigs. There are only really the big two or three right?
And while the vapors haven't been out long enough, (they claim) for a stopping smoking study, I have actually been shocked by how many people I've
spoken to that vape, that have been off the cigs for 2+ years, and are either using 3 mg nicotine, or none at all!
For me? I'm happy. I'm healthier. I can breath. Hubby is happier. He can breath.
How is that a bad thing?
