Re: “Apply cigarette ban to vaping?” (TNT, 5-5).

I have smoked since Marine Corp boot camp 1963. I tried hypnotism, patches, you name it. Nothing worked because smokers need something in their hands as much as the smoke in their lungs.

After three weeks of e-cigarettes and no smokes, I put down the e-cigs now for four weeks. I don’t understand why the smoke replacement gets a bad rap. I wonder if the Pierce County health people have any bad habits.
