Right To Vape is an international database and repository. It contains testimonials of adults who have switched from combustible and unsafe oral tobacco products to safer nicotine alternatives.

I am a 38 year old male, who has been smoking cigarettes since the age of approximately 14. I would hazard that my average intake was about 20 to 25 cigarettes a day. I come from a medical family, who essentially all smoked and I believe my fathers early passing at 58 from a heart attack was in part due to his aggressive smoking habits. About 5 years ago I succesfully quit tobacco with the help of NRT (patches) and thought I was done with smoking. Well, human as we all are, the right combination of circumstances (social, stressful etc) brought me back to tobacco. I honestly beleive at this time, as I am currently tobacco free and vaporizing nicotine that I would not have strayed had I had a vaporizer as an option. I have been vaporizing for only a short time, and my research has been thorough. Being medically minded I actually find it rather comical that government agencies in this country are pushing against a product that the potential to save an infinite number of lives. But I will also openly admit that the big brother mentality of the powers that be when it comes to regulating other treatments in this country for those who are in need is something I find a rather appauling. Even those who don’t lend themselves well to science or medical lingo can do the basic research on the 3 primary components of electronic cigarette liquid and come to the conclusion that, outside of the addicitve nictotine componenet they are doing themselves no real harm. I would actually prefer to see efforts to remove things like energy drinks from store shelves as I believe them to be more harmful to people that the vaporization of nicotine. As a cyclist I don’t need any convincing that riding behind a public bus for ten minutes is doing me much more harm than any time spent with my vaporizer. Fear mongering, protecting pocketbooks, lobbyists looking out for the best interests of big pharma and big tobacco are the real issues at hand. Not the safety of the general public or vaporizing community. I for one hope that logic and science prevail when it comes to any potential future legislation in this country and that somehow we all arrive at an everyone wins scenario. Until then will happily continue to make my own decisions regarding my health and what I put into my body whether or not the goverment deams it safe or otherwise. Regards, ~Chris
