I have smoked for 4+ decades.
I purchased my first vaping device from New Zealand in January 2021.
Within two days I had given up cigarettes. And I have not bought a packet, or touched a cigarette since.
I had tried all the usual methods to quit smoking, without any success.
Since I have been off cigarettes the smokers cough literally disappeared overnight and I no longer wake up during the night with a throat full of mucous. Vaping has changed my life for the better. Financially & health wise. And I find it abhorrent, that here in Australia, we are now make to jump through immense hoops to purchase something that has exactly the same nicotine present as in over the counter products. This definitely falls into the realms of some sort of Monty Python script. But far more serious for us that are being discriminated against. It’s quite obvious to me that a lot of people make a lot of money from cigarette smokers. And they can see their money pit disappearing. Including governments.
