I still do off and on occasionally. Nicotine is my vice. I don’t smoke in the house or in the new truck, so the vape saves me there, or when I’m too lazy to go outdoors lol. Nastier habit? I beg to differ... Sure if your buying the garbage sold at the gas stations/party stores/general areas. Most of these problems as stated in a reply above come from the cheap shit people are buying/importing from China. God knows what is going into the juices they are sending over here. You need to go with a reliable vendor and/or make your own juice. When I was heavy into it I was making my own juice. Only had 4 ingredients in it all deemed “safe for use” by the FDA. Did not include all the extra chemicals that are thrown in with a cig. It got me off cigs for 2-3 years. I noticed a hell of a difference. But again, I’m weak, and fell back to cigs. I enjoy em too much. As for the devices exploding in peoples pockets/faces 9 times out of 10 it is user error. Using an unregulated mechanical mod with a cheap battery not designed for that purpose will cause the incidents that have been seen. With a regulated mod (computer chip) the device automatically shuts off after 10 seconds if the button gets pressed in your pocket on accident. It’s no different with everything else in life. Look at the harbor freight jack stand thread. The harbor freight stands are failing, does that mean every stand is junk? No... Big tobacco does not like the vaping industry at all. At the height of vaping a few years ago, the tobacco industry was loosing a ton of $$. That’s what started the move mostly to shut vaping down. People are going to do what they do regardless of what others say or not. What does bug me is for years everyone saying we need to get rid of smoking, it’s terrible! A safer way ( if done correctly) comes along and a few bad apples have to spoil it. Popcorn lung?? That’s been around longer than vaping. People would get it off of cigs before hand. Some people react differently and cannot ever have a single smoke without allergic reactions and what not. This!!
