    Yes vaping could be used as an nrt in the process of nixing the nicotine. Vaping is fairly new and long term use is not documented yet. I have read about popcorn lung due to a product in the juices, regardless whether it contains nicotine. Is it safe. Research and decide.
    The nicotine addiction is only 20% of the quit smoking journey. The other 80% is the mindset to accept being a non-smoker, perhaps even a non-nicotine user. You still need to know that just one puff with nicotine will likely promote a backslide.
    Perhaps you will answer my questions with your experience vaping.
    1.) Do you still feel the need to vape instead of smoke at certain times of the day? We let nicotine rule us because of the addiction to it. Will the habit of lighting up anything or inhaling anything come to control you as smoking once did?
    2) Are you breathing better since quitting nicotine? I am sure the reductiion of tar is very beneficial to our lungs but i am concerned of ingredients in e-juices and the possible harm they can also cause.
    3) Do you still miss smoking cigarettes . Is vaping totalling fulfilling or just a compromise?

    As we are not on facebook, perhaps you will take the time to post the video. Thank you for posting and i look forward to your response Peterledbuy.

    We are all adults here and capable of making decisions that we feel are right for us. We do have the choice to be smoke free. What about nicotine free and habit free? Lets look to the future and leave the past behind with nothing to lure us back.........

    im using Honey Rose herbal cigarettes. Cherry flavour. I used to smoke 30+ a day now i only smoke 4 to 5 herbals. They are not the best but help kick the hand to mouth action
