Using eCigs to Quit Smoking, or the umpteenth nic replacement...Successful?

My true adventures of quitting smoking using eCigs. Started with Blu disposable regular, just started maintenance with White Cloud Fling lite. After careful consideration, ordered a starter g6 kit from halo, along with 4 mini tanks, and 3 supplemental juices of differing strengths.

GOAL: quit smoking, vape down from 24 to 18, using 12mg maintenance. Eventually vape down to 6mg, and mix in some flavored 0mg. When only vaping 0 mg, plan to wean off vaping altogether. (I know that's not everyone's goal, but it's mine).

    /the rest of the states said "lulz, ok WA"
    It was about taxing under the MSA act, classifying as tobacco. The fiscal statement says the money was intended to replace revenue

I don't know where you get figures that vaping even places on the revenue pie chart, but I'd be surprised if it's .001% of the industry as a whole. I don't think we have the leverage to demand much. Remember, it was a flavoring

    ACTION ALERT!
    "Legislators are proposing a $28 tax on a 15ml bottle of juice. Call 1-800-562-6000 today and tell them vote NO on House Bill 2795 and Senate Bill 6569"
