    I got that from my parents in the beginning. My dad quit cold turkey when I was young, so his first impression was the I'm "still smoking" Over the past 2+years that I've been vaping, however, he's gotten more information and has become supportive of it and has started recommending them to smokers.

    As for when I'll quit vaping? Probably when they pry my PV out of my cold, dead hands. Alzheimer's runs rampant in my family and in the past 5 years my memory has already started to get fuzzy. There have been several studies suggesting that nicotine can aid in the reversal and/or reduction of symptoms so I'm going to keep at it until I have proof that it's doing more harm than good.

    Actually, this thing has been bugging me. None of us has quit.

    We moved from burning leaves with nicotine to burning liquid with nicotine.


    IMO, quitting is putting down the cigarette and bit replacing it with another nicotine delivery system.

    All of us are a finger snap from analogs. You just don't want to admit it. Because if we have all truly quit, we can put down the PV permanently.

    How many here can do that?

    ... I don't have nicotine in my PV... Sure it seems ridiculous in some cases to vape something with the main intention of it delivering nicotine.. But, I haven't had nicotine in a while.

    Can you stop vaping today to never, ever pick one up again?

    What bugs me is why is this even a question? Some vapers have quit vaping completely. Some vapers have quit using nicotine, but still vape because they enjoy. Some vapers still use nicotine and plan to continue to do so.

    Have we quit smoking... YES. We no longer burn paper, tobacco and other additives and inhale particles from that combustion.

    Period.

    ... I was trying to stick up for the non-nicotine people... Calm down, put your guns away.

    Can people stop stuffing their face with food? If someone made the ultra low sugar, ultra low cholesterol, ultra low calorie, ultra tasty and realistic cupcake would you criticize those that ate it?

    This is about frame of mind.

    So if I was to stick a nicotine patch on my arm or chew a piece of nicotine gum I wouldn't be able to say "I quit"? Wow. Well you better tell the thousands of people that do it everyday.

    one of the great things about getting old is I no longer give a hoot what people think of me and what I do! I don't owe anyone an explaination and if someone were to comment about my vaping, that is what I would tell them!
    1. drink more water and get backups for your backups!
    2. careful! vaping may turn you into a shopaholic and hoarder!

    I don't smoke anymore, and never will again, therefore I quit smoking.

    Have I quit using nicotine? No, and I have no plans to do so.
    But I have most definitely quit smoking, without question.

    We moved from burning leaves with nicotine to burning liquid with nicotine.
    No, we are not burning the liquid, we are heating it until it changes it's physical state and becomes vapor.
    Burning things and inhaling them is called smoking, and it is very bad for you.

    The process of combustion changes things (like tobacco) into other things that did not exist before combustion.
    And those are the things that kill you.

    This does not happen with vapor.
