    I’m a former smoker and I can tell you from actual knowledge that vaping has helped me quit cigarettes big time. I’ve tried everything over the years and nothing has come close to vaping in effectiveness. Yes, there should be some regs and controls, but the fact that vaping WILL help you quit tobacco cannot just be dismissed. Let’s also not dismiss the other dirty little secret being glossed over here. That is the loss of tax revenue from people buying less tobacco products.

      One hour of vaping is equal to smoking 100 cigarettes. Just thought I would share so the tobacco industry isnt losing money at all.
