I guess starting to smoke is what I meant. I now once you start it is hard to quit. When I was in Jr. High and High School I had a lot of friends that started smoking and like I said above when I found out how much it cost I was like 'heck no'. My parents constantly complaining about how much it cost and my Mom coughing kept me away from it also.I don't "want" to smoke. The cravings are just terrible.
How is it still incredibly bad for you? There's an issue with sweet flavoured liquids giving people popcorn lung, but most people I know who vape switched to unflavoured liquids after that scandal hit. It's also dangerous stuff to get on your hands, especially if you mix your batches yourself, but unlike tobacco, there is at least a way to use it that won't harm you if you're careful. As far as I've heard, the verdict on nicotine as a drug is that provided you're healthy, it's both good and bad for you.Still incredibly bad for you but by vaping you're being a lot more considerate to those around you.
