Today makes 21 days without a cigarette!!! I had been a heavy smoker for 30 years and the sad part is that Im only 39! I started out with the nicotine patch, then added the lozenges and neither of those was working for me so I ordered the Halo G6e-cig (please remember that I am a noob here!!!) and the G6 did the trick for me. I have recently upgraded to an eGo Twist with an iclear 16 clearomizer,what a difference!!! Back to the question: my family and friends are asking me every day if I am still smoke free and my standard answer is that I have not smoked a cigarette but I am vaping and then I am asked if that is not the very same thing. Well I dont have an answer to that because I just dont know! So how would you answer a question like that??? Is vaping considered smoking? Any and all answers are greatly appreciated!!!
