Default Switch to Vaping from Smoking

Almost a month a go, I switched completely to Vaping device. I no longer smoking cigarettes, but now I ended up enjoy vaping.

I just wish to have some experience sharing through this thread, for fellow diabetic who quit smoking and start vaping.

For me, the effects are :

1. Less snoring
2. Less fatigue
3. Increase appetite

No effect on BS read, and I will get my Hba1c reading schedule next month ( last was 9.7 )

Really want to hear other experience..

Thankss

Congratulations to siapaya!

Waw, thank you Nancy.

If you still have the interest to switch to vaping, instead of you browse and decide your self which device to buy, I really think to talk to a friend that already succesfully switched from smoking to vaping might be the best way to do it.

I just simply have a neighbour told me that she's quitting from her 25 years smoking habit after 2 weeks of vaping, then I go this way till now...

I have been a vapor for 5 years, even though I had quit cigarettes 30 years prior. There is a nice "vape shop" close by that I hang out in and will have conversations with folks looking at it to get them off of cigarettes. The number of success stories I have heard is mind boggling.

You don't need to spend a small fortune on equipment (though my OCD led me there). Do not waste your money on those gas stataion ciga-likes. IMHO they are all junk. Go to a reputable vapor shop and for under $50 you can get good battery (Ego is a good one) a charger, cartomizer tank and a bottle of "juice". You need to understand that the juices generally come with various nicotine strengths. Let the sales person guide you.

Vapor and vaper are two different words, and two different things.

Regardless, the two words seem to be used in the world of e-cigs. The idea was to get away from the term e-cig as they aren't cigarettes as we know them. That does not make it right, just the way it is.

Ironically, I first saw the term a number of years ago on this forum as a way to break the cigarette addiction. I have seen it work in many instances, especially among users who had tried everything else.

I saw on TV recently, in the news, that vaping can be a higher lung cancer risk. I don't want to be negative, because vaping is good for ppl that have to be around you, but I see is as trading one vice for another. Nicotine addition is nicotine addiction and no way around that one.

Do you think that just maybe "Big Tobacco" is behind some of this "science"? Nicotine is not a carcinogen but rather the unbelievable number of chemicals added in the manufacturing of cigarettes are. I am not proposing that anyone should "vape" but cigarette addicts (yes the nicotine) have an alternative. Juices come in zero mg. of nicotine. That is what I vape as nicotine just leaves me a little dazed.

The only other ingredients, other than food grade flavors are glycerine which has been around for years in food, hand creams and for many years used as an artificial sweetener. The other is propylene glycol with similar uses. It is also the solvent generally used in inhalers used by asthmatics.

No i don't. But I believe BIG Tobacco already has their hands into the "vaping" industry.

I dont think nicotine solely are the factor here.

Usually cancer related news ( or hoax ) about E-cigarettes are concerning about formaldehyde created by the heating process of the liquid mixture.

I really want to see how the scientist can have further trial for this matter.

It's hurting my mind if I have to smoke cigarettes again because vaping is actually more dangerous.
