I smoked for 34 years, started when I was 16. I tried many methods to quit, including classes, nicotine patches, and gum. classes were useless, the gum upset my stomach and the patches irritated my skin. Time after time, when under stress, I picked the cigs back up. I suffered from chronic bronchitis and sinus infections, asthma, and the beginnings of COPD as I turned 50. When I tried vaping flavored e-liquids almost 3 years ago, I quit smoking easily and never looked back. I also have ADHD, and nicotine helps me focus calmly on my tasks, so vaping has helped me have a safer nicotine delivery. I had to have 3 surgeries in the first year after I started vaping, and that requires a chest X-ray and doctor’s exam prior. My primary doctor was amazed that it only took 4 months for my lungs to clear and I was off my inhaler within 8 months. I am 53 now, and feel wonderful. I currently create my own e-liquids and vape 3mg of nicotine in them. Every adult deserves access to safer nicotine alternatives like vaping flavored e-liquids.
