    Remember that smoking does not cause cancer, it only increases the risk (slightly) to those who are genetically predisposed to it anyways.

    I've smoked since I was 17 and at my last check up my doctor still doesn't believe I am a smoker.

    As for the cost, well that is an expense that's up to you.

    I work for my grandmother from April to October and she buys all my cigarettes all year long.

    But it does cause a lot of other things.

    It seems to me that there would be a greater risk in terms of chronic effects with smoking... but cigarettes won't explode in your mouth.

    I use the kind where the cartridge detaches before plugging into the charger.

    That is true, especially with the heart.

    I just like to point out that cancer thing, I usually get a taker or two who will challenge me on it.

    At least you weren't trying for the third and fourth hand smoke...

    Like where if you walk past a room where someone once smoked near then you'll get fourth hand cancer. (Not sure what the explanation is, but I'm sure it's almost equally absurd)

    The danger of exposure to second hand cigarette smoke has been greatly exaggerated.

    Agreed. The whole second hand smoke mythology was mostly a way for people—angry that they couldn't force other people to be healthier—to convince themselves that even the smell of smoke was making them sick too. This way they aren't being bossy, they were defending themselves. I've even heard several people convinced that second hand smoke is more dangerous than first hand smoke, and they were serious. It boggles the mind that people could convince themselves of such horseshit.

    That said, I am happy with the results. No more smoking in bars and restaurants, and anywhere else the public is served indoors. I guess the ends justify the means.

    For what it's worth, I used vapes to help me quit smoking years ago. After a few weeks, I didn't want either any more. Vapes seem to be a better quit solution than just about anything.
