Vaping as Smoking Cessation - Twitter Testimony

 The misinformation about vaping has been a thorn in my side for many years.  To set the record straight, vaping in the United States of America is illegal for anyone under 21 years of age, as is alcohol, and other adult products.  That should be the end of that story where teens are involved.  We are not attempting to ban alcohol, cigars, edibles, or other adult products that are illegal for teenagers to use, and vaping falls under that same category.  Vaping with or without flavors is an adult choice and the government has no right to tell adults how they can quit smoking.  That's what this fight for me in the vaping community is all about.  As a reader of my blog you have seen my smoking cessation success story thanks to vaping, and I credit it with saving my lungs after my COPD diagnosis from a long-term combusitble cigarrette addiction.  Vaping destroyed that addiction and my lungs are as health as a non-smoker now.  This is a fact that is backed up by medical proof through pulmonary function tests.  

I'm tired of arguing with political and health groups about the dangers of teens vaping, because banning vaping has no place in this argument, it simply shouldn't exist.  Enforce the laws against offenders selling to minors, hold the teenager and parents responsible for them engaging in illegal activity, and stop trying to kill millions of adults who have a chance to save their lives by using vaping (if they choose that) for their smoking cessation tool.   As a mother of five, and grandmother of two, I hold myself accountable for my children and granddchildren and so should others.  

I am focused on harm reduction through vaping for those who have used traditional methods of smoking cessation and failed.  These people have been able to drastically improve their health through giving up smoking cigarettes for vaping.  I failed with nicotine replacement therapy, gums, hypnosis and cold-turkey until I ended up in the hospital with COPD.  I've watched countless friends and family members die from cancer and other smoking related illnesses.  I will fight until my dying breath to make sure people have the chance to quit that worked for me.  These are only a few stories of millions who have been able to successfully quit with vaping.  

I encourage you to use the Hashtag #Vaping and share your smoking cessation success story with #vaping and share it all over social media.  It's time to stop letting THEM control the conversation.  The real story is about those who have changed their lives for the better through vaping.  Please feel free to comment below about your stories of success as well.  The world deserves to know the truth about people who have used vaping to save their lungs!  Those are the voices that NEED to be heard!

Vaping Can Save Your Life If You Are a Smoker


I'm Michelle Hughes and I saved my lungs by vaping after my COPD diagnosis in 2015.  My story is not a special one, except for my family and friends, because I know thousands of people who've had the same experience that I have.  I have been a strong supporter of vaping since the results of my health were so improved when I quit smoking and moved completely to vaping.  Several people have asked me if I'm paid to support vaping, and I can tell you without any hesitation that I do not receive a single dime for promoting the healthier habit of vaping.  I support this because I have seen firsthand the positive results of using vaping products. 

Let's start with facts, that I can personally verify.  My oxygen levels when I was diagnosed with COPD were between 68-70%.  This ended with a hospitalization that was a major wake-up call.   What makes this so disturbing (outside the fact that I literally couldn't breathe without coughing and gasping for breath) is that I worked as a respiratory therapist from 2001-2008 and knew what smoking could do to my lung.  I failed by using nicotine patches, gums, hypnosis, and Chantix.  I always went back to smoking within a few months.  The healthcare professionals I knew?  Not a single one recommended vaping to try and quit even while I was in the hospital fighting for my lungs.  

I was told by a friend that they had used vaping to quit a few years before my COPD diagnosis, and honestly, I thought it was some hippy fad and laughed it off.  When you are sitting in a hospital trying to breathe, your perception changes.  I'd driven by a new vape shop in my little town located in Clanton, Alabama, and never stopped in before.  When I left the hospital after my discharge, I pulled into that vape shop and thought what do I really have to lose?

That was the day that changed my life.  I had the same friend that told me to give vaping a try on the phone with me and handed the phone over to the shop owner.  She told him the type of mod (e-cigarette device) to give me and he showed me how to put everything together and use it.  That was the last time I touched a cigarette.  I began vaping and I hate to say it this way, but it really was my miracle cure. The first two weeks were really difficult, I coughed A LOT, and expelled a lot of mucus, this was how my body adjusted to getting used to the switch from smoking to vaping.  Determined, and with a death sentence, if this didn't work for me, I kept vaping.  

A month after I began vaping, I no longer had to sleep in a recliner to be able to breathe.  Three months after vaping, I was able to sing again, something I hadn't done in years because I'd lost that ability.  A year after vaping, my oxygen levels had gone back to 96-97%.  My pulmonary function tests two years later showed a huge improvement in my lung capacity and the new physician was convinced I'd never smoked.  I haven't had bronchitis or pneumonia since I stopped smoking and began vaping.  Prior to that, I was in the physician's office every three months or so for that since my COPD diagnosis was Chronic Bronchitis.

How do I feel about the attacks against vaping from public health in America?  I think they are purposefully lying to the American public and are responsible for deaths in the hundreds of thousands every single year with their refusal to accept the facts from real scientific cases like my own that prove vaping can significantly change the lives of adult smokers for the better.  I feel the same way about politicians that are denying the truth to millions of smoking adults that there is a safer way for them to quit smoking and that is with vaping. I stand very strongly with Public Health England which has shown the science between vaping and smoking and that vaping is 95% safer than smoking.  In my case, it was 100% safer.  I encourage you to follow their scientific research that is still going on today and unfortunately have to encourage you not to listen to American Public health because they have repeatedly lied to consumers.  

Their lies have been proven but most people still believe that vaping is more dangerous than smoking cigarettes, and that is a deadly lie that should be called out daily until those lies stop.  Below are some eye-opening facts about how they have lied and attempted to cover up the truth about vaping.  I hope you take the time to read through this and educate yourself and those around you.  If we don't force them to tell the truth, millions more will die from deadly cigarette smoking.

Memories of 9/11 We will Never FORGET!!!!

This is how the world woke up on September 11, 2001.  I remember this vividly in my mind.  I'd just gotten home from working night shift at my hospital, and was trying to wind down before going to bed.  I saw the first report break into the morning news, and thought it was a hoax.  Nothing like this could happen in this beautiful country that I loved.  When the horror set in that this was real, my first thought was my children.  I lived in Alabama but I feared that the entire world was going to war so went to immediately get my children from school.  In changed my thoughts forever about the world I lived in.
