Hi, my name is ladycrooks and I am new to this forum. I quit smoking only 4 months ago after losing both my parents to cigarettes. One died from emphysema the other from stage 4 c.o.p.d. at 33 years old after smoking for 23 years I could barely breathe. I tried everything to quit in prior years and failed to quit before.. and then finally I tried vaping and I haven't thought of or touched a cigarette since January 25 this year. (2021) I started on custard and dessert flavours and haven't stopped. I have alot to ask because I'm new to diy ad well.

Welcome, this forum will be a new home for you. I smoked for 40 years....quit because I found vaping much better to my liking, especially after finding all the information I needed right here. And vaping has become so much tastier and easier in the 10 years since I started.

Hi, my name is ladycrooks

Greetings from CANADA and Welcome to ECF!

When they started .....ing about flavours (flavors in US lingo) I dropped flavours from my DIY and didn't miss it at all after a short while. I agree with them that I don't know if flavourings are harmful or not, I know the other ingredients are less harmful than smoking.

Unflavoured vape has a taste of it's own and it is not bad. I enjoy it and you are free to enjoy whatever YOU enjoy!

    Welcome to ECF, ladycrooks. My grandfather passed in the mid 1980's, he was a WWII vet and had emphysema. Shortly after that I started my 30+ year cigarette dedication. Almost 7 years ago I switched dedications.. :cool: Congrats on 4 months :thumb:
