The truth usually works its way to the surface in spite of all the haters that want to tilt the world toward their beliefs.
If governments can admit that ecigs not only help smokers become nonsmokers, but can be used without harm I see no reason for the FDA to trump up reasons to regulate them out of existence.
The article is truly good news.
I also see the "other" side of the coin. The argument that candy flavours etc may attract younger people. But, after having this argument with so many people, I always end up saying "so?" Frankly, the younger crowd is ALWAYS going to look for SOMETHING. So then why would vaping be so bad? Honestly if my son were to take up smoking cigarettes I'd probably lose my self control. But if I caught him vaping (by the way he is 17) on my Davide I'd probably just tell him to go easy so he doesn't throw up. Seriously...vaping versus cigarettes? If he wants to that bad I'll buy him a kit! I'd rather have him vape then smoke if he's going to be so hell bent on doing it!!
Don't get me wrong, I don't nor will I EVER encourage him to! But given those 2 choices its a no brainer!!
But he has seen me go from 3 packs of the strongest stink sticks available to a vaper. He's wintessed how it WORKED! He's also seen what cigarettes do to your health. I doubt he will chose either...I hope :-)
I've had a bit of a rough patch this last month. My last remaining grandpa was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. He was told he had six weeks. He died after two weeks.
We had just been out to visit in February and at the time I had thought to myself that he would live to 120. He was so very alive. I'm glad my daughter got to meet him.
When my mom called to let me know, she was crying and thanking me for switching to vaping.
We stayed at his condo when we went out for the funeral. Even after washing the walls and shampooing the carpets, the place still reeked of cigarettes. After 2 nights my parents asked us to please blow the biggest clouds we could everywhere in the house because the room we were staying in smelled so good.
I'm not really sure why I'm sharing this. I needed to get it out I guess. I want to thank you all, on the behalf of people who love you, for vaping!
I think that any person with common sense know this, the problem really is not about non-believers or haters, I think it's a business and tobacco lobbies will continue to try to discredit vaping.
