Do you smoke or vape, and for how long? I've smoked like forever and enjoy it too much to stop. I do vape too, but when I run out sometimes it's too much of a hassle to go and buy more so I get cigarettes. Is smoking as bad as all of us (and myself) think? Smoking isn't the only health factor. Some people are still heavy smokers in their 90's. Yes, I know it can cause cancer but so do many other things.

not a smoker
|Words from an ex smoker on Jan 10, 2016 @ 12:32 pm|
I used to be a smoker, for about 8 years. I quit cold turkey about a year ago and have not gone back. The Vape I do not recommend as some of my friends use them and with the research that has come out they are even worse for you then cigarettes and we don't even know all the chemicals inside of them. As for smoking, yes it is just as bad if not worse then what we believe but being an ex smoker you unfortunately will never quit until YOU are 100% ready

It's scarey all the teenagers that vape,I personally don't smoke and know too many people that smoked all their lives and they all ended up with cancer

When it comes to things that are bad for you (being overweight, smoking etc) you have to remember that it's only a risk. Luck plays a part too. You can be fit and never eat ice cream your whole life and get cancer.
However smoking contributes quite heavily to the likelihood of lung cancer in terms of odds. Vaping doesn't as it's actually the bad chemicals in the cigarettes rather than the nicotine that causes the most harm. So if you were able to switch to vaping totally you could reduce that a lot.
Overall it's your life and your choice, but for me a bigger fear would be Emphysema which is extremely common for lifelong smokers.

Vaping is actually supposed to be far better for you than smoking! It eliminates all the poison chemicals in the cigarette and gives you just nicotine instead, so it's actually a good option for those who can't seem to quit cigarettes! But non-smokers probably shouldn't take it up ^^;

Will never be a smoker or vape

I don't do either. Smoking is unhealthy and expensive and to me gaping seems odd and a waste of money. Smoke always gives me a migraine, even second hand, so I would never take it up.

I've never done either. I get sick just by smelling second hand smoke.

My mom was so healthy and never smokes and she died recently from brain cancer. My dad has smoked since he was 12 and is still alive and quite healthy. I smoked for 10 years and quit cold turkey when i got pregnant. I noticed such an improvement in my health. I'm so glad I quit. Just one more risk I don't need.
