My vaping facts!
Quit cigs after decades of smoking. The last 20 years were non filtered and RYO’s. It took me two whole days to completely quit once I started vaping. I only saved about 3K bucks in the first year, this year I’ve spent 369 bucks on vape products. Cigs are 6.50 a pack in Ohio that combined with my extra health insurance premium of 1,800 / year would have cost me 4,200 bucks a year as a smoker. I could buy a new car on what I’m saving!
Why I’m posting in the heath area.
As a smoker I constantly had bogies, blew my nose throughout the day…that stopped completely in the first month. As a smoker I would occasionally get extremely sharp localized pains in my lungs, a bit like being poked with the end of a pencil…that stopped completely in a few months and has not returned. As a smoker I occasionally had asthma attacks, they have stopped. SOB (shortness of breath) it got really severe the last few years of cigs, improved by maybe 25% (2019 update on SOB, it has now reduced even more than last year) the first year of vaping, and this year another 25%. Nearly forgot, I usually burned my cig fingers at least 2 or 3 times a week…sometimes very badly when the cig stuck to my lips as I tried to pull it away from my mouth. Haven’t burned myself 1 single time in 2 years!
What did my Doctor say at my last check up in June? Mouth, throat, etc… looked great, BP 112/70, O2 absorption rate 98%, blood work…all good except PSA numbers. (update on Dr visit: stats are still good and my PSA has dropped by 4 points probably from using Pygeum)
Gee what else? I no longer smell like an ashtray, the air in my house/garage/car has no cig odor, my clothing no longer smells of burnt tobacco. (update on the cig stink: repainted my interior walls and ceiling…cig odor now completely GONE!)
All of the above are MY FACTS on (update:now over 3 years) 2 years of vaping!
Does vaping affect health? It did mine!!!!
