I’ve been smoking for 23 years, and heavily for the last 5 years. It was dragging down my overall health but I couldn’t quit it, since I was addicted to smoking tobacco.
In June 2018, I bought a simple tube style e-cigarette kit with replacable coils for 20 Euros, along with some bottles of eliquid, and since that very day, I haven’t smoked a single cigarette, and don’t even think about smoking anymore. In the last 2,5 months I was even able to reduce the nicotine in my liquid to 1ml/mg without any drawbacks.
It is no exaggeration to say that this e-cigarette saved my life. I can breathe again, I can move better, I feel better, I don’t stink of smoke anymore, my living place doesn’t stink anymore… everything gets better. And it saves me money each month. A lot.
So whatever legislators are contemplating, do NOT make access, import, production of e-cigarette products and liquids more complicated or more expensive. If governments support it, it can be a health revolution for Europe, along with a healthy industry to create lots of new jobs.
