Deja vu. Only the smoke has changed.
I have a relative-in-law who managed, finally, to stop smoking by starting with the vape thing. It’s true, I’m not very fond of him, but it’s been almost funny watching him try to explain why all those other people aren’t like he is, and why it’s still safe for him… And oh yeah: It’s way cheaper too.
I know that quitting is hard: Maybe the hardest thing I ever did, but y’know what? If I can then I’m pretty sure you can too.

But lung cancer and emphysema do NOT come from nicotine. By getting smokers to switch to vaping we can reduce the incidence of lung cancer and other nasty lung ailments.
