What do they usually write about vaping? It seems like the equivalent of a light beer.

Heeee. It's better than that. I use almost no nicotine (4 milligrams per milliliter). Some vendors don't even sell that -- they go straight from 0mg to 12mg. There's no combustion so there's no smoke or second hand smoke or carbon monoxide or tar or arsenic or formaldehyde… There are something like 8,000 carcinogens in cigarettes.

The FDA who's funding is tied into the pharmaceutical industry (the patch, gum, Chantrix, etc. is a multi-billion dollar industry) says it hasn't been proven 100% safe and therefore should be banned. And propylene glycol is antifreeze. It's the ingredient they use in SAFE antifreeze to make it safe.

The American Heart, Lung and Cancer associations (who receive more than half their funding from drug companies and big tobacco) say that using any nicotine is a gateway to smoking and that having flavors other than tobacco is proof that they're being marketing to minors. As I don't like the flavor of tobacco, in the 22 months I've been vaping, I have yet to use that. I just finished the last of my caramel popcorn and, when I finish the Boston cream pie (which I don't love) I start on the salt water taffy and English toffee liquids that just arrived.

All I know is that I smoked for 40 years. At the end I was going through 3 1/2 packs a day. There was always one lit even if I only took a couple of puffs off it. I tried cold turkey, acupuncture, Wellbutrin, hypnosis, Smoke Enders, and nicorette. And 5 days after getting my first PV I had my last cigarette.

Ooops. I use 6mg. Although I did just buy some 4mg from a vendor that doesn't have 6mg.
