So hey @GovInslee - you’re destroying an industry that I feel passionate about because not only did I get to quit smoking cigarettes from #vaping, but it saved my life. Thread:
I was in a mentally abusive relationship for years. The guy cheated on me for a long while with a minor. My coping mechanism during and after that relationship was Camel Crush Menthols. Pack a day. It was a bad bad habit. Until one day, I learned about something new.
I met someone new after the other guy and I split. Nicest guy ever. He was outside of work and pulled out a #vaping device as I reached for my cigarettes. He educated me about everything, how it was safer, how the nicotine intake could be controlled, everything.
Same day, bought a device and decided enough was enough - I was going to quit smoking cigarettes. And I did - in one day. ONE DAY.

When I made the decision to go onto YouTube, I wanted to teach others about my aha moment and have others have the same aha moment.
I feel like I was able to help some people switch or teach people how to properly use a device. From a horrible thing that was killing me (cigs) came a beautiful new community of people who just wanted to help others succeed in one thing - quitting smoking.
I’m also fortunate enough that #vaping was part of how I found the love of my life. I got really lucky. And today, I can officially say to you I quit vaping.

Not because I wanted to - no I have zero nicotine in my #vape products. But I quit because you forced me to.
I’m not grateful to you at all, @GovInslee. Not at all. I just moved here and you’re stripping my right to be an adult and make my own choices. I didn’t smoke as a kid, I’m not a kid, and I never want kids to smoke OR #vape. Never.
But why should I, one of your law-abiding citizens, not be able to consume something that is scientifically proven to be 95% safer AT MINIMUM than tobacco? This flavor ban creates a black market, which is where the THC cartridges that were laced with other things came from.
I hate to say this, but @GovInslee, you’re helping create the problem. Have you even talked to experts about the science or #vaping? Did you get the perspective of the other side of this issue, the side where it’s saved so many lives & allowed families to continue enjoying life?
I don’t vape anymore. But I won’t stop sharing my story. From an addict to a survivor and champion of my own life choices. And @GovInslee, you’re taking that opportunity away from all of the responsible adult consumers in your state. #vapingsavedmylife #vape #notasmoker
