    Default What do the Docs say about vaping?

    I have a follow up appointment with my doctor this week. I am excited to report to him that I have not smoked since my lung had collapsed 12 days ago. BUT, I have taking up vaping and love it. Doctors usually give you the 5th degree about smoking and blame the minutest symptom on smoking. Just curious what your doctors had to say about the wonderful world of vaping.

    It's a fantastic alternative to smoking, all Dr's are not educated on vaping so make sure yours is if he has something to say about it.

    If your doctor is keeping up with trends etc. I think he'll encourage you to continue as mine did. Mine was also very aware of what PG/VG is which was shocking to me. With that said, my doctor has lowered the strength of my cholesterol meds. yay me!

    Had a checkup a month and a half after starting vaping (47 years of 2 PaD). My doc had no idea what vaping was. He did note my BP had went down 11 points on both sides and my OČ saturation went from 92 to 98. I sent him some CASAA info to him. During my last visit he said he was impressed with the info and asked if he could share my story with his smoking patients.

    Had the first signs of emphysema several years ago. Gonna see him again in Feburary and ask for a lung x-ray for a comparison.

    Let us know the comparison report when it comes back!!!! So excited for your positive medical reports!!!!! Honestly, I could never be more happy. I always needed to quit smoking, but never enough willpower to do it!! Very little willpower needed with vaping. I wish I would of found vaping sooner....it can save lives!!

    I openly vaped in my Dentist's chair. He was willing to pass some extra ECF cards along to patients who smoke, because he insists they give up smoking prior to some surgeries. A couple of his assistants smoke and were impressed and eager to try vaping, as well.

    This is a special brew that ENS has been offering to us locals lately. Gotta say ... it tastes like the real deal ... but it doesn't like a lot of watts.
