I was smoking 20 cigs a day and luckily came across Ecigs a couple of months ago. I have just had my second child at 42 and am looking forward to extending my life by many years as a result of now only smoking ecigs. Best thing in the world for reducing the harms of smoking.

I love smoking, I have never had any health concerns relating to heart or lungs and at age 32 I have been smoking for 22 years. But........... I am now a father, responsible for others and required to be alive until my princess is at least old enough to look after herself. So bring on the Ecig, this way I can convince myself I haven't had to give anything up as I can still smoke in the car (my after sex moment), blow smoke rings and generally annoy health Nazi's which are all reasons I still love to smoke.
I would like to point out that while ecigs are much better than Cigarettes anyone who convinces themselves that they are "healthy" is delusional. Yesw, there are no carcinogens so you wont get cancer, but Nicotine is still responsible for the hardening of arteries that leads to heart disease and stroke.
Still a much better alternative than smoke of any kind. So regulate the industry, tax the crap out of ecigs (like they do tobacco) create the revenue stream for government and just shut up about it! Cheers.
