Concerned women in America oppose a ban on flavored vaping products, because flavors allow them to quit and stay away from cigarettes, therefore saving their lives, allowing them to be there for their children and grandchildren.

In their own words, self-posted on Twitter using the hashtag #15sec4Vape — please read and view the testimonials below:

“I’m Michelle Hughes from Verbena, Alabama, 50 years old, mother of 5 grandmother of 2, diagnosed with COPD in 2015. (I) Started vaping cookie custard and bakery flavors. I kicked the habit and saved my life. We vape, we vote.”-@MichelleHughes_

“My name is Hannah. I’m a single issue voter. I am a mother of two middle school students and I gave up my two pack a day smoking habit by vaping flavored nicotine e-liquids and use flavors like banana nut bread, birthday cake, and apple pie. Flavors save lives.” — Hannah

“Flavored nicotine vaping products helped me quit smoking. I smoked for 15 years and now I’m smoke free for 5 years thanks to vaping. Flavored nicotine products save lives. I vape and I vote.”-@KimmySmithTHR

“I smoked for 20 years despite having a dangerous heart condition I knew was being made worse by smoking. I tried everything to quit, but nothing worked until vaping. And since then, I’ve been able to stabilize my health, my heart has improved, and I finally have the possibility of a very long and full life, and seeing my daughter make it to adulthood, and maybe even seeing my grandchildren. So yes, vaping saved my life because without it, I probably wouldn’t even be here today.”-@Red_Phoenyx_

“I started vaping strawberry custard. I haven’t touched a cigarette since.”-@MaryAnn78700468

“My name is Kim. I’m 39 years old. I smoked for 18 years old. Prior to finding vaping, I tried two pharmaceutical meds. They both made me extremely ill and one was even causing my hair to fall out. I also tried the patches, pharmaceutical inhales, and hypnosis. The only thing that helped me quit and successfully stay of cigarettes for 6 years has been fruity flavored e-liquid.-@SfSubohm

“Hi, my name is Jess and I’m 33 years old. I smoked cigarettes for 20 years, and I finally quit with cotton candy e-liquid. Not only do I vape, but I also manage a vape shop and invested my life savings into the industry last year, so, vaping didn’t just save my life, it’s also my livelihood.” —  Jessika Eryn

“I started smoking cigarettes when I was 15. Once I got into my 30s, I realized I needed to quit. I tried patches, gum, pills, everything. Nothing worked until vaping. Vaping green apple e-liquid was the only thing that helped me to quit smoking cigarettes. If it wasn’t for vaping, I’d still be smoking.” — Candice

“I’m 47 years old and my name is Jennifer. I quit smoking in 2010 with a great mint flavored vapor. I would like the president to please save the vape shops and save flavors so they can continue to save people every day from combustible tobacco. Tobacco kills, vaping saves lives. We vape, we vote.” — Jennifer
