I have been smoking for 30 years and was up to 30 – 40 roll-ups a day. My friend showed me a standard e-cig a few years ago, which I tried, but didn’t like the flavour of the vapour. Then a few months ago, he showed me a tank system, using flavoured juice and nicotine. I didn’t want to stop smoking, but did want to stop using tobacco. I enjoyed smoking, but was concerned about the harm it does. I really liked his e-cig, so I bought a tank system, and have not looked back since. I personally have not tried any tobacco flavours due to the horrible standard e-cig. I only use fruit or beverage flavours. My cough has gone, I no longer snore and I feel healthier and more ‘alive’. I also find I don’t like the smell of a smoker anymore. So, I have stopped smoking, and now consider myself a vaper. I have also converted my wife who now uses the same system as me, and loves the coffee flavours! As I have my own business, I am even considering selling the liquids at my cafe as well, and becoming a vape friendly establishment. This has changed my life for the better, and would urge any smoker to change. My only worry is that the politicians will listen to the narrow minded lobbyists like ASH, and change the law without looking at the evidence, and that I will be forced to smoke harmful tobacco again. So, EU, look and listen to all sides before you put the health of your voters before money.
