    Does anyone here have damage from vaping?

    I quit smoking by using vape but now it has shown to be as bad or worse than cigarettes so I didn't gain anything. But I am happy to say that I have dropped vaping too after seeing all the reports of people dying from vaping.

      Never tried vaping. My personal thoughts were that this was such a new thing that people were doing without it being tested. And it appealed to everyone from kids in middle school to people trying to quit smoking. And the added flavors just made it more appealing to the younger people.
      I was not surprised when I started hearing the news that people were getting very sick or dying because of e-cigarettes. Anything that goes into the lungs like that cannot be a good thing.
      Now scientists are trying to see what specific ingredient is causing the problems.
      It was a way for the e-cigarettes manufacturer to make big money but I'm hoping that this will teach people not to vape. We really don't even know how it will affect people 5, 10, 20 years plus down the road. Just scary.

      A friend told me he thinks he has some lung damage from vaping, terrible cough and chest pain. NBC news reported last night that the CDC suspects one of the culprits is a vitamin E oil that is used in vape liquids. I agree, clinda, it is very scary....these young people dying or having chronic lung problems before their lives really even start.

      I have never smoked so I can't speak to how hard it must be to quit. I saw my Mother in law try to quit and never could until she was so sick that smoking didn't enter her mind. The vaping is just beyond me. I cannot imagine sucking in the chemicals that I always thought must be in those things, and now it's being proven to be true. Nobody knew in the beginning what was in them or the long-term effects from them.

      The 10 week stint in the hospital was responsible for me to quit smoking. If I hadn't gotten sick I would probably still be smoking. I don't even remember an option to vape back in 2006.

      It's on the news every night where we live, people are getting serious lung damage. One young man or teenager had to have a double lung transplant.
