Fast forward to December, 2013 when she was diagnosed with brain cancer. She was in such a traumatic state of mind, as anyone in that situation would be. It is unclear if smoking cigarettes was a contributing factor of this cancer, but she knew that smoking wouldn't help in her fight against it.

Is Juuling Considered Vaping?

4:57 PM 12/20/2017

If you have or know someone in college or early 20s, then you've probably heard of "Juuling." But what is a Juul? Is it a vape? The short answer is yes, Juuling is absolutely a type of vaping. But, the longer answer is a bit more complicated and it includes my personal opinion. Keep in mind, I am in no way bashing Juul products when bringing up this question. Juul has been a miracle device for countless smokers out there; it has saved lives. But in comparison to other vape devices, I would put Juuling on the "low end" of true vaping. (For what it's worth, Juul also does not seem to consider its products vapes, as evidenced by its tagline "The Smoking Alternative, unlike any E-Cigarette or Vape.") Technically, a Juul produces vapor in a similar way to a box mod or any other electronic device. We are all still inhaling vapor instead of smoke, tar and crazy amounts of chemicals.

Charles "CJ" Heitz, 41 years old, from Baltimore, Maryland was a smoker for close to 30 years. Through those years of smoking, he has tried multiple methods of quitting. Nothing worked. He even attempted some methods several times without success, such as nicotine gum and nicotine patches. It simply did not work for CJ. He enjoyed cigarettes too much to make a successful clean break from them. Well, he didn't like the smell and the fact that they are bad for your health. But other than those things, he just loved his cigarettes. However, he did take notice to the negative effects cigarettes had on his own health.

‘Thank God For Vaping,’ Says 46-Year Smoker Who Finally Quit

4:30 PM 12/12/2017

Robert Noel, 56, from Arcadia, Ohio started smoking cigarettes at the extremely early age of 10. Everyone around him - both family and friends - were smokers, so he felt the need to fit in. He would sneak as many cigarettes in each day as he could, because he knew deep down that he wasn't supposed to be. This is what kids do, right? Well, it progressed from there until he was a full-blown smoker, every day for 46 years.
