Tried everything during my +40 years of smoking to stop ! None of it worked for me! With the Vape is was just like a Walk in the park ! It came just by itself in less than 4 days, I don’t like the taste and smell of combustible cigarettes anymore! And will never return to the cigarettes either!
Give us our rights to vape… We don’t want your cigarettes We want to live longer.
I’ve stop smoking tobacco because of e-cigarettes.
Vaping has saved me from tobacco. And at the moment i am transitioning to quitting vaping altogether. This technology has saved me. Please do not deprive other people the chance for them to be saved from tobacco.
I have been suffering from asthma, i have been smoking for the past 15 years, six months back i switched to vaping and never had asthma attack since then. Vaping really helped me out in quitting smoke.
Smoked for 16 years and the only thing that got me off them was vaping, after trying everything my doctor could give me. Without vaping id still be smoking, spending god knows how much on something that in the end would kill me
I quit smoking after 15 years thanks to vaping in one day … it’s been 200 days am totally smoke free i support vaping – it saved my life.
Why ban a healthy alternative to smoking? Is it because of massive lobbying done by cigarette sellers like ITC? Tobacco is more injurious, How about banning it?
I have been using vaping products for 5-6 years now. I switched from tobacco to vaping because i wanted a safer alternative to tobacco. If vaping is banned i will go back to smoking tobacco cigarettes.
