  •  I am vaping rght now... (7+ / 0-)

    I have smoked cigarettes for 35 plus years at about a pack a day.  I have tried to quit too many times to count.  I have said that when they hit a dollar a pack, then two dollars a pack.....  nothing has worked.  I have tried gum, patches, pills and nothng has worked.  I have not smoked a"real" cigarette now for 18 days and I am feeling very confident that I will nevr smoke another cigarette again, ever.  

    Every other time I have tried to quit, I longed for a cigarette... constantly.  This time, I am not.

    Let's say, I never stop "vaping" with nicotine e-liquid (even though I hope I do), are you saing that this was a failure?  You are wrong! For one thing, I am no longer polluting my friends and family with second hand smoke.  Two, I am getting no additional nicotine but I am getting none of the other harmful chemicals such as tar, carbon monoxide, insecticides, etc... Three, I can breath better already, I can taste better, my clothes don't stink my breath don't stink, my teeth are not getting yellow (as well as my windshield, my walls, my fingers, etc...).  

    Who are you to say I (or anyone else) have failed?  Best is the enemy of better.  E-cigarttes are not the best solution but they are definitely better than the hundreds of thousands of "real" cigarettes I have smoked in my lifetime and you have no right to tell us we have failed if we do not quit completey by whatever time frame you establish.  

    Take your judgemental, holier-than-thou comments somewhere else and suck on them. You'll probably find them toxic as well... I certainly do.
