Submission from Chris Tonks

I quit smoking with vaping - no longer smoke - feel 1000% better !!!

Hello im Chris, i smoked for over 28 years try'd to quit 7 times never lasted more than 2 weeks max.

I had tried to give up smoking using patches gum and even drugs nothing worked till i started vaping, Non Smoker for 124 Days

I don't want to see nicotine and vaping equipment sold in supermarkets or chemist shops or used for big tobacco to prop there dieing trade, but i do feel it has to be given to want to be ex smokers as a tool to give up smoking !

I feel that if i was not aloud to vape at this time i would be forced to take up smoking....and that would be a sad sad day for me and 100's if not 1000's of ex smokers.

Thanks,
Chris Tonks
