    Doctor Mitchell Pfeiffer, a Pulmonologist at St. Vincent, warns this is a dangerous slope.
    He says while no study has ever shown near this quit rate, the results are not valid unless reproducible.

    Right! We should wait for the results of another 12-year study of nearly 20,000 people before we conclude the vaping has a better success rate than the traditional methods. o_O

    It helped me quit the stinkies when all else failed. In fact, I was able to completely stop by simply switching to vaping.

    Here let us do it this way...let's turn the whole vaping industry over to big pharma, and sit back and watch all the studies start rolling in, that say vaping will gaurantee that you quit smoking, regrow hair, cure erctile dysfuntion and cure the common cold.

    Same here. I tried gum, patches, cold turkey and hypnosis. None worked for me. I started vaping 11 months ago and have not touched a cigarette once.

    Anecdotal experience: When I was smoking, I used to get several nasty colds every year, and the would almost always crawl down into my chest and remain there for weeks. In the 5-1/2 years since I switched to vaping, I've had only one cold and it didn't go into my chest at all.

    Oh, and my old friend Woody shows up much more reliably too.

    A bit over 36 years. I started relatively late, right around my 18th birthday, but I went through two packs a day for the last 10-15 years before I switched. FWIW, I just turned 60 this month.

    I have smoked since 15 years old. When I wanted to quit two years ago, I tried many things: nicotine chewing gum and patches, read Allen Carr, but everything was useless.

    Living is 95% safer than dying.

    But only live people die.
    Living is just a precursor to death.

    And death is just a portal to another dimension to begin the process of great inevitabilities all over again.

    Maybe. Not sure I want to do it all over again. This one has been a good run, it might be tough to beat.
