So today it's been 8 months without a cigarette for me. To celebrate I went out and bought a box of Marlboro. -j.k! I will never go back to smoking. Quitting smoking and transitioning to vaping has been the best thing I have done for my health to date. I love it. I feel younger and feel far more healthier.
However, I'm growing more and more concerned that the FDA is fixing to come crashing down on the vape party. The rumor is that here shortly the FDA will release regulations that will ban all flavors except tobacco and menthol, possibly ban all sale of e-juice by itself and making it so only pre-filled cartridges could be purchased, to prevent all Internet sale of e-cigs, to limit the amount of nicotine to an absurdly low level in e-juice, and quite possibly the banning of all models of e-cigs that do not look like cigarettes. If the FDA were to implement such restriction it will cause vapers to return to smoking, which is a death sentence.
I was watching the Katy show the other day and she had a segment on e-cigs and the guy she interviewed was a dumbass. He was saying that all flavors of e-juice need to be banned because they are only used to entice children and adult vapers don't care about the flavors. This is 100% total bull shit. E-cigs are for adults. Adults like the flavors. The flavors are an added bonus of vaping instead of smoking. Besides, alcohol comes in all kinds of flavors too but we don't see idiots making claims that all alcohol needs to be flavorless so as not to entice children. I'm just really nervous as I think the FDA could begin this process any time now but I do think they will wait until early next year.
