Vaping Saved My Life After COPD

Fighting for My Right to Live

Advocacy for Vaping


I know this is a romance blog where I share my writing and other authors, but I wouldn’t be here today to do that if it wasn’t for vaping.  As some of you might remember, in August of 2015 I shared my story on being diagnosed with COPD and using vaping as a smoking cessation tool.  It worked.  I was able to put down a 2 pack a day habit by using vaping as my nicotine replacement therapy.  The changes in my body have been unbelievable!

I’m able to sing again, sleep at night without coughing my lungs out waking up a hundred times, and haven’t gotten bronchitis or pneumonia once.  Prior to vaping, it was every other month I was diagnosed with bronchitis.  Vaping was the last thing I tried after:  Nicotine patches, hypnosis, prescription medication, and cold turkey.  None of those things helped me quit smoking.  When I went to the emergency room it was a huge wake-up call, getting hospitalized was proof that if I didn’t give up that horrible habit I wouldn’t be around.

This is much more than Big Pharma or Big Tobacco trying to strong-arm the FDA, our government, and the opinion of the public.  This is a fight for my life, for my right to breathe, to have an alternative that works for me to keep me away from combustible cigarettes.  Maybe it’s true that the long-term effects of vaping haven’t been studied to know how this is going to turn out in the long run BUT… and this is a HUGE BUT…. I wouldn’t have made it another five years without vaping.  So long term effects weren’t my concern because I needed something that worked RIGHT NOW!

There are hundreds of thousands of people out there just like me that can’t WAIT for long-term testing because they are DYING today.  I’m an author, but I’m not overdramatizing the facts here!  If they tax these products to where those in a lower economic bracket can’t afford to quit by using vaping, those people suffer!  If they BAN vaping, they essentially KILL those who need this alternative to smoking to live.  I want you to think about that long and hard!  Without vaping, myself, and several people just like me will DIE addicted to cigarettes when the answer to quitting effectively was right in our grasp but we stood by and did NOTHING!

Looking at things realistically, Big Pharma and Big Tobacco should be the real losers here.  They don’t deserve the right to kill another person with their products or their FAILED methods of nicotine replacement and Prescription medications that have caused people to have suicidal thoughts.  Research the truth on Chantix:  Suicide warning for Chantix and Anti-smoking drug Chantix linked to 500 suicides.



I KNOW without doubt vaping saved my life, and I will fight until my dying breath to advocate for it.  There are so many lies out there about vaping and I encourage you to research for yourself to discover the truth, not what the media is trying to spin-off for their agenda.  Get the facts, and please support my cause to Fight for My Right to Live by visiting these pages:

Tears of Crimson is Going Keto!

 


So, I've been on the Keto "lifestyle" for over a month now and it's been working really well for me. The lockdown has really played havoc with my weight, and health, and I knew that getting back in shape was something I desperately needed.  I wanted to share my journey through this, so I thought I'd create a journal of sorts online.  You can pop in at www.ketowithmichellehughes.club if you're interested in recipes, and tips to get you started.  I've lost 16lbs, so far!  

As some of you may, or may not know, I'm a type two diabetic, and what really kicked me in the backside was my sugar levels reaching 377 at my last doctor's appointment. I'd been in a funk for the last year, and really let myself go, both mentally and physically.  If you've noticed, I haven't released any books in over a year, and a big reason for that is I was physically exhausted.  I'm writing again, my mental clarity is returning and my blood sugar is now back in the normal range.  Keto has been a huge life-changer for me!

It's been a huge adjustment changing a lifetime of eating habits, but I haven't been hungry!  I think the reason a lot of diets fail is that you're always starving.  If you're doing Keto right, you won't have to deal with that.  I'm not a doctor or a dietician, so I don't know why Keto works to keep you full while eating less, but it does work.  I even have to force myself to eat these days, because I'm just not hungry.  The hardest part about this is coming up with meal plans (at least it was for me) and I've shared exactly what I've eaten for the last five weeks on the new journal blog.  No, I'm not charging for this information!  

If you're looking to lose weight, or maybe even help your type two diabetes, I hope you'll join me on this journey.  For me, this is a lifestyle change, not a diet, and you have to go into this with the right frame of mind.  Believe me, I was a huge bread, pasta, rice, and potato eater prior to Keto, so it is an adjustment period.  I've learned how to substitute those foods for healthier, and believe it or not, tastier options, and I don't feel like I'm missing out.  I've even discovered how to eat out and still remain on Keto.  Basically what I'm saying is, if I can do this, I know you can too.  I hope to see you on the blog!

Keto Krate Unboxing for April!!!

 


Can you say EXCITED?!?!?!  I got my first Keto Krate in and I think all my dreams have just come true.  No, I'm not exaggerating! It was like Christmas morning because there were so many goodies packed inside I just couldn't wait to dive in.  I know, I know, I have to watch my calories and carb intake, so I'll have to space them out, but the idea of having snacks (especially ones I don't have to make myself) can you say KETO HEAVEN?  I could so keep on rambling, but instead, let me show you what's in the box! OH!!! Before I forget, if you'd like to try the Keto Krate, I have a $10 coupon code for your first box:  https://glnk.io/ykq1/tocsflavors or you can use my coupon code:  TOCFLAVORS 






I'll come back and give you my thoughts on all these snacks, if I can keep my kids out of the box so I get the chance to try them.  My boys are trying to lose weight as well, so they are doing Keto with me. If they beat me to them, I'll get their opinions.  The family that Keto's together stays together right?  Really excited about this snack box, and I'll be working into my meal plan.  Wishing you all the best on your Keto journey, and if I can help at all, just let me know how in the comments below.
