Just wanted to say goodbye https://ift.tt/2OtRI0T

I quit vaping cold turkey on the 4th of July. It was easier than I thought it would be, so that was cool.

I only miss it on occasion as an appetite suppressant at this point, but I have no plans of going back.

I'm not a scientist, and I don't claim to be, but part of my motivation for quitting was that I have been diagnosed with asthma my entire life. I get regular breathing tests and my breathing tests have been better than when I was on analogs, but still not great.

I had my first asthma attack while riding a bike a few months ago. I have also noticed a cough that was slowly becoming more frequent. I always assumed it was from a spec of hot juice coming off the coil, but now I think it might have just been an excuse.

Again, I'm not a doctor/scientist/whatever, but I really do feel like vaping was making my asthma worse. (I never had an asthma attack on analogs.) There's quite a bit of research out there about vaping's effects on the immune system and asthma. I was inclined to deny it prior, or at least be suspicious of it, but honestly, it was happening to me. It was the first time I really became aware of why I couldn't just vape the rest of my life. If any of you are experiencing similar issues, just keep this in mind.

It was pretty interesting seeing all the things that have changed in me since I quit vaping. I donate all the money I used to spend on vaping to some charities now. I like that. I don't miss lugging my gear around, making sure I have good battery power, or trying to find acceptable places to vape in public. I thought I'd miss all the good dessert flavors, but I actually don't. I used to have some annoying gastrointestinal and insomnia issues that have really started improving since I quit (and for some reason I never thought vaping had any part in it). The cough has gone away and my lungs feel…. better, I guess? Hard to describe.

Anyway, sorry for the ramble, but on the 4th of July, I packed all my vape supplies into a box and tucked them deep into my closet and haven't looked back. I came here today to unsub, but wanted to first say goodbye to you all and best of luck in your endeavors.

Vaping and this sub were a big part of my life, and while I have no regrets, I am eager to carry on life without my asthma inhaler, and therefore also vaping. I've also started running and am enjoying feeling my health improve.

Feel free to ask me whatever you want (or yell at me for my opinions on vaping and health) before I go. I don't mind.

Much love! ❤️
