The full story of why and how I started vaping can be found here; but in short…I grew really tired of the expense of smoking and the smell of cigarettes. I wasn’t a regular smoker…but a social smoker (a pack would last me about a week). But even with infrequent use, cigarettes were a big annoyance to me.
Check out my story on Medium about vaping…
Now what absolutely kills me is the influence yielded by the American tobacco industry to kill vaping. And the media is right on their bandwagon. It’s a diversion and whatever potential risk posed by e-cigarettes pales in comparison to the toxins delivered by their cancer sticks.
But hey, don’t get me wrong, I’m not an anti-smoking Nazi. I’ve been known to swipe a cigarette every once in a while (still). But I don’t like to perpetuate myths and play into propaganda. I also respect the fact that as adults we have the right to indulge in various guilty pleasures. I respect your freedom and choices, so I only ask that others can do the same.
