Vaping in Iraq
I have been Vaping in Iraq for 60 days now with my Ego and Johnson Creek Smoke Juice. I love everything about both of them. My cardio workouts have went up in the gym, my clothes don't stink like smoke and I still get to relax with an awesome nicotine flavor.
I have been seeing those commercials on AFN which got me thinking about the long term effects, but I know that there is no way it could be worse for me than Cigarettes (analogs) because of how much better I feel. So I began investigating and what I have found so far is that these commercials AFN is putting out is nothing more than either a knee jerk reaction by a desk jockey (that would be a big surprise, LOL) or a greater political agenda put in motion by cigarette manufacturers and drug companies who make the nicotine patches and gum.
All I know is that I love Vaping and it makes me feel better than smoking. If I can be of any assistance to anyone else here in Iraq, PM me...

Thank you for your Service.
Congratulations on you decision to stop smoking cigarettes and give vaping a try. Sounds like it was a good decision for you. I know what you mean when you write you feel better and don't smell like an ash tray anymore :-)
Wishing you ALL the best,
Thanks pkj, I am happier everyday I hit the gym. It is turning into quite a task keeping myself supplied and the 10 or so other people over here with carts, juice, and Atomizers but So far so good
Are you having trouble getting e-cigs and supplies delivered to you?
Have you found a reliable supplier?
How do your superiors react to your vaping? Maybe they don't know about it
They know and alot of them think its great but a lot of people are hesitant because of the negative commercials they are running on AFN (Armed Forces Network). The mail system here just takes forever sometimes. Im trying to be careful to order supplies in the right amount of time so I don't run out.
SonOfAries - 'ppreciate you and your service, welcome to the community, and finally congrats on making the move over!!
Thanks Matthew, good to be here!
I don't think anyone can say for a fact that it's safe to vape. But I don't think it's a stretch to say that it's kinda dim to not understand that it's MUCH better than smoking. Like you said you're cardio goes way up. Especially if you smoked for a long time. tons less chemicals and so many other benefits. Would it be better to just quit cold turkey? I guess, but I did that about twenty times, it was always easy untill I started smoking again. Heck, back when I served they gave me packs of cigs while I was in combat. They didn't want us going into shops while we were on patrol to buy them (25 cents a pack 50 for marbs) and you know we would have regardless of orders, right?
Be Safe, Peace!!
Good to see you made your way here from clear over there! Welcome, PM incoming!

Needless to say we are all worried since our president decided to go ahead and completely pull out all of the heavy military firepower (our president is not a very popular man in our household right now mostly because of this).
I know that the military has been trying to push it's members to quit smoking and I congratulate you on your decision.
You all stay safe, don't forget to duck, and don't let any empty set of boots come home with you.
