I have mild COPD and had smoked for years, nothing helped me to stop, then I found a forum on the internet who discussed Vaping, I joined in desperation of finding something that would get me off the killer cigarettes.
Three months of reading everything available on this subject and getting 100% support from the forum, I realised that this was what would work for me, still getting the 'hand to mouth' habit, with a choice of vaping (steaming) flavoured liquid with or without nicotine, so my journey began.
I have been vaping for 18months now, enjoying it enormously, saving money, improvements in my health, I like myself now, this has now become my hobby, chatting with like minded friends. My family are delighted I have succeeded in giving up stinky smelling cigarettes.
If the powers that be ever stopped people from vaping we all know we would revert back to smoking cigarettes because that is a habit that is ingrained in us now being mature adults. I have not felt so fit and well for years. I am harming no-one, no passive smoke to pass on as it is only steam not harmful smoke.
I would try my hardest to persuade the younger generation to vape not smoke, there are no papers published by the WHO that says it is harmful and should be banned.
I am 73yrs old and looking forward to many years of vaping and a happy life.
