To begin with, any "study" coming out of California, I automatically look at as suspect. When it comes to whether vape or smoke cigarettes, I much prefer my chances vaping over cigarettes. And ..... it may seem a bit morbid to think about, but I would choose to have "my lights go out" with a heart attack than spend my last days in agony with lung cancer from smokes. Now, with that said I'm not in favor of rushing either outcome. That's why after 50 years of smoking cigarettes, after a friend offered me his vape rig to try, I went out and bought myself a setup. The day I started vaping I put cigarettes down and havent looked back. That was 6+ years ago. Vaped 4 years, stopped vaping 2 years ago. So I guess that means now I dont have to worry about having a heart attack or lung cancer.
I agree with both @cany and @VapeMama but be prepared to have to do some trial and error. For me it was a little like going to the doctor. Pretty good but now I have this going on. Change prescription. You get the drift. And then there's the "oh look, something new!" In search of the ultimate vape! Wonderful hobbie if you look at it like that. Like @cany, I would be embarrassed if I divulged how many mods, atties, and juices I have went through and or have. Regardless, it brings me a lot of joy both in the activity and knowing I'm not on analogs any longer.
@Cany that is awesome to hear. I couldn't do that at all, I am too adjusted to direct lung inhale....lol Once upon a time I used Nautilus tanks and really enjoyed them. Either way that is cool that you can go back to those and enjoy them.
