No. I was smoking 20 cigarettes each and every day and since I quit tobacco products totally and switched to vaping my health and energy levels have been nothing shout of miraculous. It is, of course, better not to smoke or vape but vaping is the lesser of the two evils by a considerable margin. I have never met a person who was introduced to smoking via electronic cigarettes (the so called gateway vapers). I’m not saying that they do not exist but I would be VERY glad to meet one for myself.
