I am a 68 year old male. I smoked 2 packs a day for many years. 2 years ago I realized that I felt very old. Got very tired walking up and down stairs, walking around the block or any strenuous activity would leave me tired and worn down for the rest of the day. I knew it was the smoking. I asked my doctor if there were any new drugs that might help. He recommended Champix. I got it and it worked. I starter smoking less and less. My craving for nicotine was gone. I would still smoke after a meal or when I woke up in the morning. I went from 2 packs a day to about 8 to 10 cigarettes a day. Those were the want to’s not the need to’s for the addiction. Then a big recall of Champix because of side effects.(depression, suicide, etc.) So went back to smoking 2 packs a day…. Some how I happened onto a website that talked about E-cigarretes and I did a lot of research and thought that that might be the answer. I looked into the ingredients in E-juice, the delivery method, the batteries etc.. After about a month research and still smoking I found out that the ingredients in E-juice are in almost everything we eat and that includes the nicotine. Glycerin(VG) and Propylene glycol(PG) are FDA approved food additives. When you fill up your basket at the super market they are in most of food products you picked out. But what about the nicotine you say????? Do a Google on veggies that contain nicotine. You will be just as surprised as I was. If you eat these veggies it is like sitting in a room with and smoker and getting second hand nicotine form the second hand smoke. Potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant, peppers(mild and hot) and the list goes on. PG is in skin care products, it is a food preservative. It is used in puffer devices for asthmatics, injections of medicine, in room vaporizer solutions and even in some hospital air condition systems to help prevent the spread of infection. And to some anti freeze is poison and it may have PG in it but the non toxic anti freeze has PG in it so think about it. We all know that a cigarette has over 4000 poisons in them and they are still selling billions of dollars a year of these killers. But in most countries throughout the world governments are trying to ban E-cigarettes because they haven’t been proven safe. Go figure. What I do know is that I feel safe, within 6 hours I felt markedly better, and I did not go through the withdrawal symptoms from the nicotine. I vape 6mg nicotine because I like the stimulating effect. I have gone 4 months with 0 nicotine and no problems. I will be vaping till the day I die because I like it.
