    Cool Meet & greet with a new MD.

    My old MD. is semi retired when you take into account many holidays, age and availability so it's time to switch MD's IMO. Got an appointment with a younger gent who is pretty wise when it comes to vaping. He asked if I was a smoker and I replied 45 years of it with the last 40 being a carton a week. 3 years ago I started vaping and haven't looked back. Showing him my device I said I'd recommend this to any smoker, any day.

    His file on me has me being shown as a non smoker. My old MD is still convinced that nicotine is evil or something even after me saying that nicotine isn't the problem, it's the delivery system that will kill you.

    Gotta love that!

    Haven't been on here in some time, as Facebook has absorbed my chatting time, and there is a ton of advocacy on there to deal with. In any case, great to hear about your new doc! It is always good to be on even terms with your doctor, vs being at odds with them. I have a lot of clients that have experienced this attitude with their doc, though some are starting turn around. Hope to see that the smoker box is never checked on a form again!

    Had another appointment with a surgeon who (you guessed it) asked if I smoked. Again I pulled out my device and said "Not for a bit over 3 years." The surgeon said "I'm trying to get my mom to vape." I said "After 45 years of smoking this is what finally worked." He replied "Ya, I keep hearing that."

    Either I have been finding open minded MD's or the word is getting out that vaping works. I'm pretty sure the genie is out of the bottle.

    I agree with you.
