Vaping vs Smoking

  1. Why Am I Coughing Stuff Up?

    So many of us have experienced this. We quit smoking, took up vaping, and after a while - maybe straight away even - we started coughing up gunk. There was an interesting question on the forum recently asking if the moisture from vaping was breaking up tar in our lungs.

    I'm not sure that moisture from vaping is breaking up tar. I think not having smoke going into the lungs is the big key. The cells can regenerate without suffering damage. With smoking, new cells are subjected to the

  2. When Should I Quit Vaping?

    Some people start vaping with the goal of weaning themselves off nicotine over a set time period. Others just start vaping and are glad they are off cigarettes. On when to quit vaping - I don't think there is a prescription that will fit everyone. I smoked 40-50 a day. No way I would stop vaping after say, 4 months. I am at 12mg nicotine now with some 6mg and 0mg as well. 8 months off cigarettes, and I'm not rushing to quit vaping. I smoked for over 30 years. I've only been vaping 8 months by comparison. ...

  4. Where I'm at on Smokers and Smoking

    I posted this on the forum and thought it was as good a place as any to start the blog.

    The government and a large number of the public here are so anti-smoking that it makes this forum look like peace valley. The latest law, which comes into force in December, is that cigarettes have to be sold in plain packaging.
