Thank god I've got a good pension or I might have to cut down or even give up. Sometimes I pop over to Belgium on Eurostar to buy fags in bulk, much cheaper there.

Hopefully they won't kill you they way they did my father.

He spent six months gasping for air due to his inoperable lung cancer, then one night drowned in his own blood.

I've had two grandparents die of lung cancer as well, both, like my father, life-long smokers. Possibly three, but I was young enough when the other died that all I was told was that he was sick. He was also a smoker, though.

Re: E-cigarettes

I don't think there's any debate that putting ANYTHING in your lungs not meant to be there is harmful. The question really revolves around HOW harmful is vaping? Is it less harmful than smoking? Theories tend to point to yes, but there hasn't been enough long-term studies on the health impacts of long-term vaping.

I quit smoking last year by switching to nicotine pouches named Zyn. They contain no tobacco, so no tar or other cancerous chemicals. They are filled with a nicotine salt. You use them similar to Snus. I was able to stop smoking pretty much cold turkey and haven't breathed better.

Re: E-cigarettes

I have seen several things on TV and on the web about how some makers of e-cigarettes are admitting that their product also contains nicotine. And in fact, at least as much as a real cigarette in some (not all) cases. Big tobacco still wants your money and doesn't care about your lungs.

I'm a certified grandpa (3 times now) and proud of it.
Retired over one year and survived being home all day with the wife. She must really love me.
If I have helped you, please either click the thanks or click the scales.

Re: E-cigarettes

I prefer vaping to smoking, and most of my friends have switched to vapes yet. Sure, it’s the same nicotine in another form, but I see less harm in vaping as compared regular cigarettes. Also, there is no such annoying smell from my clothes anymore. I like to change flavors, fruit mixes from Migvapor are my favorite. I don’t miss the cigarettes.

Cool Re: E-cigarettes

Some people report the use of CBD helps with addiction from tobacco to Opioids.

Vaping CBD is also popular, but for different reasons.
Most CBD taken orally uses a fatty oil such as coconut oil. Test show that about 35% gets into the bloodstream. It can enter within 10 minutes.
For Vaping, the vapes enter the lungs with capillaries where around 85% enters the bloodstream. It can enter in about 1 minute.
For people with pain or people reducing addiction, the cost effectiveness of vaping is better.

There is another form of nano-encapsulation, a patent used for many pharmacist drugs. One company licensed it for CBD isolate. The CBD is pharma quality and processed with the nano-encapsulation for delivery orally into the human blood stream. It included testing that shows around 96% absorption in under 2 minutes.
This is a project for me to add exact doses into high-quality honey in small packages. These will be available for tea, coffee, or direct.
