I started smoking cigarettes at the age of nine. I smoked at least 2 packs a day for 45 years. I had tried just about everything to quit over the years but nothing seemed to stop the cravings. A friend gave me an e-cigarette for Christmas one year with a bottle of plain tobacco flavored juice. I vaped indoors but smoked outdoors for a few weeks until I bought some juice more like the flavor of the cigarettes/cigars that I smoked. After a few more weeks, I got to where I did not enjoy the cigarette/cigars anymore and started vaping only. I have slowly enjoyed the realization of my sense of smell and taste coming back. Food had seemed so bland after 45 years of smoking. I will soon be reaching the age of 60 and I know that I will be greeting it in much better health than I would have if not for giving up cigarette/cigars and turned to vaping. If my right to vape is ever taken away, you might as well sign my death certificate now because I know I would take up smoking again.
