K. Hadley's curator insight, November 26, 2013 6:43 PM

Electronic cigarette's are one of the biggest lifesavers to EVER be invented! I would have NEVER quit my 2 pack a day habbit if it wasn't for this miracle! I really do not know what has happened to this country, but us Americans are so afraid of anything that can have ANY kind of effect (good or bad) the first action anyone takes anymore is BAN IT!  CONTROL IT!  Take away everybody's rights because it's new and were afraid of it! What are your views on this new item?

Ejuice To Go's curator insight, December 3, 2013 12:34 PM

Vaping is an alternative to smoking cigarettes that contain 4,000+ carcinogens. When you switch from smoking cigarettes to vaping an electronic cigarette, you eliminate the 4,000+ deadly carcinogens. Eliquid does contain nicotine but nicotine does not cause cancer!
Many can say "I Quit Smoking - Thanks to Vaping" http://www.ejuicetogo.com/i-quit-smoking-thanks-to-vaping/
