I smoked regular cigarettes for 12 years, I quit for 5 and then I started vaping. It was good at first because it kept me from wanting cigarettes but then little by little I started getting bigger devices because it just wasn't enough. Then the problems started creeping in like coughing phlegm difficulty breathing. I never told my doctor I Vaped because I didn't want her to know that I do something so stupid. But now today is the day I quit I have the worst sinus infection of my life and my breathing is so labored and I'm only 43. I don't want the burden in my hand any more ...or the weight of carrying that thing 14 hours a day. Vaping is NOT A safe alternative to smoking, don't let the e cigarette companies tell you any different. There's absolutely NO regulations or oversight of the manufacturing of cotton coils, ejiuce, or cartridges. Most components are made in China with no oversight. Please , let's get more people on the ex vape forum!!!
