    Lol, I'm the only one who submitted a poll answer :p

    At the moment I would say I am addicted to both vaping and nicotine (in the juice). If you took the nic out for me right now, I'd go through withdrawal, and if I had to stop the hand-to-mouth behaviour, that would be hard as well..

    My 2 cents worth is that I feel (and others say this) that vaping is not as addictive as smoking regular cigs. I regularly read stories of people who were able to cut the nicotine out of their juice over time, and even quit vaping.. seems to me that it is a lot easier to quit vaping than smoking.

    What are the 'adverse consequences' of vaping?

    I think a better term would be 'habit forming'. Even then, there is no study known that shows an habituating effect of nicotine sans cigarettes (e.g. NRT). There was a doctor who did studies involving providing quantities of nicotine to patients (treating Parkinsons, AFAIR). None of the test subjects showed any signs of craving for nicotine once the trial ended.

    Nope not addicted to vaping but i have no plans to stop vaping, why should I stop doing something I enjoy when it is causing me less harm than crossing the street?

    Recent studies confirmed that vaping does not pose a significant threat to human health. The public perception of vaping and the attitude to electronic cigarette use are changing significantly as well. Back in 2011, less than twelve percent of responders said that vaping is safer than smoking, in 2015 already thirty-seven percent of US-based respondents said the same.

    Definitely addicted to vaping & nicotine. I've tried going nic-free but it doesn't satisfy me. I'm on low nic which is ok, but I vape a lot. I haven't tried to quit because I don't want to. I didn't want to quit smoking but knew I had to.
