Some of did for whatever reason. Now we are addicted and e-cigarettes are the only thing that helped me quick. Since there will now be a flavor ban the point is moot and needs no further support from me. I am backing out of this conversation now.

It was fun.

Sure ... if one poison relieves you of an addiction to a worse poison, then go for it. It all comes down to the fact that, by definition, there is no 100% safe poison.

Which is why it was invented. This is all we have been trying to say about why we do it.

I thought it might be of some interest to the members who are contributing

But which is the worst poison: a mixture of nicotine, varnish, and insecticide which is addictive, causes cancer, and usually kills from COPD; or a mixture of vitamin E acetate, nicotine, and glycerin, which goes into the lungs and never comes out?

Personally, I'd stay away from both.
