How many of you gals smoke?
How many of you quit smoking and by what method?
Do you Vape?
Discuss.

I've quit smoking multiple times in the past 12 years...using patches, gums and cold turkey...I could never find anything that worked for more than a month or two. Until 3 years ago, that is. A friend of mine told me about electronic cigarettes. I was like "dafaq?".
At first, it was heavy and I couldn't put it down (the flavor was Malibu mint) but over time, I smoke less cigs and vaped less frequently. In March, will make my 3 year mark of no cigarettes, though I still vape...I like the flavors and it makes for interesting conversation. I also like that there are groups for vapers...groups for cigarette smokers used to be called bars...lol, but these Vape groups get together, talk about the different flavors, e-cig types and mods...it's almost a hobby. I'm really glad I quit smoking.

My husband does.  He hasn't smoked a cigarette in 1.5 years, since the day he started vaping.  No more smoker's hack, either.

It's definitely a hobby for him.  He's recently begun making his own rebuildables (?). . .  whatever they're called.

That's awesome! So happy to hear that. Bet you're glad about not only no more smoker's hack but no more smokey smell either, huh? :D

I smoked about a pack a year, a couple of cigarettes at a time, every few weeks to months, when I was in my early 20s.  Had no problem stopping, but that's probably because I never smoked enough to develop a habit.

 Most people don't realize that the vapor cigarette is not a healthy option because those vapors have heavy metal toxins. Heavy metal toxins unlike other toxins can not be detoxed or eliminated from the bloodstream. Once they are in your body they are in your body for good and the more you add the more they accumulate.

People think because there is no burning, smoke, or tobacco that that makes them "healthy"

I know several people who do this and have quit.

Me thinks I should look in to it more.
