Default Vapor or Smoke?

I was a 2 pack a day smoker for 50 years.I had a knee replacement in Sept.
I knew I wasn't able to smoke so I bought a vape (a Vaporesso Target Pro) and a carton of cigs.I thought if I could reduce my cig intake with a mechical,Lord and behold I was able to totally reduce my dependence on smoking cig's.I ended up giving away my carton of cigs and never looked back.I feel great,my wife feels great that I'm saving my life.So any other vapeor's out with stories or smokers that want to quit cigs get a hold of me.
(I already know that propylene glycol is used as a antifreeze,it's also used as a deliverer for the medication in a asthma inhaler)

You smoked 2 packs a day for 50 years! Wow. That's longer than I have been alive! Guess smoking doesn't really kill you all that fast... Wow...

I was also a two pack a day smoker for many years before I was able to give it up. If they would have had those Vapor cigs when I quit I would have tried them. Regardless I think you made a great swap. Congrats

I know a lot of young people that would have never smoked cigarettes but smoke those flavored nicotine hookahs.

Sad for them, they are now addicted to nicotine.

I think you'll find most people here are older than you if you're younger than 50.

I smoked 2-1/2 packs a day, or about 50 cigarettes a day for 36 years. I quit in 2006 by using a prescription drug called Chantix. You may have seen it advertised on TV, they usually have someone who has quit smoking talking about their product. I enjoyed smoking and just tried Chantix to make my wife happy. After 5 days I had quit and never smoked again, that was ten years ago last month. It's a different type drug, it doesn't contain nicotine like gum or patches, it works on the sensors in the brain that grave nicotine. It will block them out, however you may get some really weird nightmares and I coudn't wait until that 30 days was over.

OP, as a former smoker who quit four times before it stuck, I think it doesn't matter how long you smoked, but the fact that you found some way to quit is fantastic. I know how good it feels to have quit. Congratulations.
