I have smoked off and on for my whole life, but never very much. From one to 10 cigarettes per day, never more than that. I was attracted to e-cigarettes as a political issue rather than for smoking-cessation. I believe strongly that harm reduction rather than prohibition or total abstinence is the best approach to many products that can be harmful unless used in moderation or with caution (cigarettes, alcohol, sex, many more). Prohibition or puritanical preaching of total abstinence makes most dangerous products more harmful rather than less so. I began writing for ECF because of these views, not because I had used the product. But once I tried the product, I discovered it was far better than smoking combustible tobacco. I tried a few tobacco cigarettes later on, for the sake of comparison, and they tasted horrible. I would never go back to smoking cigarettes. Yuck. I don’t vape much, but enough to know I would never consider smoking another cigarette. Vaping has made this light smoker into a non-smoker. Permanently. And I intend to continue campaigning for harm reduction as a health strategy.
