    I quit smoking cigarettes about 8 months ago and started vaping. I now have 4 different mods ( e-cigarettes ). They are supposed to be far better for your health. There are hundreds of different mods and flavors to vape with. I like it much better than smoking. Anyone else in the Hip community vape?

    Yes I'm a vaper.It's much better than smoking cigarettes.And it works out cheaper.I feel healthier.I love the different flavour juices you can get.It's as satisfying as cigarettes,and more socially acceptable.I don't know why people still smoke cigs.

    They are so prevalent that I'll take a couple hits here and there if offered, or on rare occasions, I'll ask but I've never owned a vape. They taste 10x better than cigarettes and I get more of a rush akin to hookah from them, so I definitely prefer vaping.

    My daddy let go of cigarettes near decade ago. Was a pack a day. Just quit cold turkey. Said he ever actually gave up, just had not had one in a long time. Last i was in his house a packet of cigarettes was still on the mantle piece. Unopened for several years. He bought it the day he quit.

    Can't temp him.

    That's strong will!

    Vape shops here have protective covers for the mouth pieces so you can test them.

    I too was a pack a day smoker.one day lit one up, and it just didn't taste good. put it out and didn't light another for a couple days. and same thing, made me feel bad, like I couldn't get enough oxygen. so six months went by and lit one up. no big deal. then a year passed and lit one up and smoked half a pack. then I realized if I finished that pack I would be hooked again. gave them away, that was in the late 80s. haven't smoked since, now if its in the air, it makes me cough. just don't like it anymore. one thing I noticed, I quit having to go see the doctor for respiratory problems, especially in the winter.

    people will continue to do dumb things.
    the world is a better or worse place,
    proportional to how considerate of others they are in doing so.

    It's nice that it helps people quit cigarettes but it's become trendy and cool on its own. People are convinced it's 100% safe but I just don't understand why you would want to do it. There is no "high" so it must all be a be seen thing. The same way cigarettes used to be looked at. I suppose I can not say anything since I am a pot smoker.
     
  12. Tobacco all the way.

    I used to be a vaper, before i went cold turkey and just quit completely.. i would say that Nicotine is not a harmless drug. But when you compare nicotine in a glycerine base to nicotine in a tobacco base, it's not contest. Tobacco has an incredible amount of carcinogens. Vaping is much less dangerous.

    well popularity comes and goes and comes back, and presumably, hopefully will go back, someday,
    to reserving tobacco to being the kind of religious ritual drug it was before europe 'discovered' its indiginous use as one and turned it into a recreational one instead.

    no recreational substance is ever completely safe, but i think the herb has a very positive advantage of tobacco, as lower risk both for health and addiction.
    and that includes the second hand smoke problem as well.
    (though i doubt many studies have been done yet to asses the risks of second hand mary jane smoke.
    as more and more places decriminalize and eventually legalize it entirely,
    eventually they probably will be)

    personally as a non-smoker, and i have nothing against the ritual uses of tobacco, which are not limited to smoking it,
    i would so much rather, the second hand smoke i am forced to breathe by inconsiderate morons,
    were that of mary jo juana, then tobacco.
