In Oct 2012 I had a small stroke. Before that I was smoking real cigarettes, about 5 packs/wk. I decided to try to quit smoking, that’s when I learned about E-cigs. I did some research and found that the E-cig only contained only Nicotine, PG and VG. Then I researched what Nicotine did to a human body, the results showed it was no more harmful than coffee, it DID NOT cause cancer. I then researched PG and VG. E cig juice I found only used FDA approved PG and VG. Which both can be found in many store eatable products like cakes, pop tarts, etc. So PG and VG is not harmful. So I decided to try E-cigs. You don’t smoke a e-cig you vape it. So I been Vaping since Nov. 2012. I sure am glad the E-Cig was invented, it sure helped me quit. I tried the patches with no luck, waste of money. Also with vaping their is no foul order and no tar residue. When I smoked I smoked on the outside porch. With the E-cig I can set in the house and my wife has no problem with it, she has never smoked. E-Cig do not smell up my home and does not make the walls yellow cause there is no tar. I feel sad that the Federal Gov(FDA), wanted to ban the e-cig. In my opinion lobbyist from the tobacco companies and pharmaceutical Companies are behind all efforts to stop E-Cigs, E-cigs make a big cut into their profits. Also the Feds don’t like tax revenues going down because of smokers quitting and going to E-cigs. The Government says they want all smokers to quit, they say that but don’t mean it. They will loose to many tax dollars if everyone quit. That’s why the Feds are wanting to regulate and HIGHLY TAX E-cig products.
