I'm not judging you when I say any of the following. Do as you wish. If your health seems good enough for you, then keep on going, but there is a price to be paid in the end for smoking. We're adults. We all know that. For me, my health was not good, and I could feel it. So I changed. I took up vaping.
I quit smoking the first week I started vaping. I was truly addicted to the chemicals they put in to the Marlboro cigarettes, and I smoked them all except for the menthol. I've done Copenhagen, molasses plug, cigars of all kinds, and cigarettes over at least a decade. To be honest, I've lost count of how many years I smoked and how many times I've quit. This time, it seems for good.
To me, at 12mg, the nicotine and e-liquid "solution to smoking" is so clean... I can go almost forever without needing to vape. I vape because I like to vape. That might not sound so scientific but I've gone 8hrs with no vaping at all, and was not stressed at all. Had I tried to do that when I was smoking, I would have become moody, or aggravated, and feeling low on energy, after 2 to 4 hours.
I quit smoking for my health. I have heart related issues, bicuspid aortic valve - that now has me living with "senile aortic stenosis," which will require a valve at some time. My lungs have cleared up in the 6 months I've been vaping, and cardiac-wise, I feel fine. In my apartment, I'm looking at a new set of Kreitler rollers and my old Serotta racing bike that I have from my college days back in 93. I'm going to be getting on that soon.
I shoveled the snow the other day here in Chicago...like a wild man, and walked back up two flights of stairs, NO PROBLEM. Didn't feel a thing negatively. No tightness in my chest. Didn't stop while shoveling. There was not much snow, but, I do not foresee any issues going forward. I'll be 56 this year.
Can't imagine feeling better. If I quit vaping, I don't think I'd improve my lot. That's how good I think vaping is for me. I think it would be better if you only vaped too, but, we have just one life and you may as well do what you want for it's entirety.
