I am so so proud of you. I am a nurse who has never smoked a cigarette in her life. But I go into homes all day educating people on respiratory devices. Unfortunately there are so many smokers that I was concerned about the exposure of second hand smoke, plus my dad has stage 4 lung cancer. I used to tell people about Chantix until I heard 95% of them tell me they would NEVER take it again due to psychotic side effects. I learned about the ecigs from a patients smoking a try2vape ecig. He told me he quit after smoking 3 packs a day with this thing. The ecig community is growing rapidly and I am thrilled. My patients doctors are telling them how much their lung function has improved and 2 of my patient have gotten off of night time oxygen and they report back to me "my doctor is happy I am on ecigs and says my lungs sound better"...so good for you. We need more doctors having the guts to speak out! Keep up the good work!!!View Thread
