Any vapers?

I saw a thread for this topic but it hasn't been posted on in years and I am unsure how yall feel about necroposting. I was wondering if any of you vape and what your general views of vaping, especially a cyclist vaping are?

By vaping, I mean the use of electronic cigarettes.

Never been a smoker but I know several who are. Some even look cool doing it.

Most Vapers vape as an alternative to smoking which is especially bad for you.

of course, but (potentially) 'not as bad' is not the same as 'good'.

I tried vaping for a while. It was great while it lasted, but as soon as something really stressful happened, I went back to cigarettes (filterless RYO in my case).

When I finally quit smoking using nicotine lozenges, vaping helped me work through parts of the psychological addiction. For the first few months, I vaped every morning, and if I really started to crave a cigarette, I'd use it as an alternative. Eventually the habit was completely broken, and breathing in nicotine wasn't much fun. Now the e-cigs just sit in a drawer.
