  1. I once told a friend of mine erev Pesach that his e-cigarettes where chametz. He said, “That’s good; now I can fulfill biur chometz with my e-cigarettes.” And he took his last few packs of e-cigarretes, made a brachah of ‘al bi’ur chametz’, smoked all his e-cigarettes before the zman, said kol chamira and passed out. Then he woke up later for the seder, drank the wine, ate the matzoh and marror, and passed out again.
    “So that’s why this chag is called ‘Pass-over!!’ “, he exclaimed.

  2. Flavors are for sure a problem. Most juice is extracted using assur alcohol regardless of flavor. Nicotine is harder to break than heroin. Nicotine actually is good in moderation for certain brain cells. Doctors will prescribe nicotinic acid for certain conditions.

    Juice must be strictly only Polyglycol and Vegetable Glycol, no PEG which is dangerous. BTW, the military uses them to sanitize the air in ventilation systems, they are anti microbial. Juice should only be derived from natural organic tobacco as well as any menthol from peppermint plants.

    Vapers who follow these rules actually have been shown to have improved lung function. Low nicotine levels, 0 to 12 tops, are best because too much nicotine can constrict blood vessels.

    Cigarettes are deadly. They have CO2 which inhibits Oxygen intake and dulls brain function, contributes to heart problems and may contain up to 3000 other chemicals, some of which cause lung cancer.

    Generally vaping is a way to gradually get off smoking by lowering the nicotine level until it reaches zero and is proven to be safer than cigarettes if the guidelines above are followed.

    Vapers should ask if facilities are FDA certified, OSHA compliant and product is lab tested and must provide documentation upon request, regardless if claimed to be Kosher or not.

    Vaping the right juice, as indicated above, has allowed me to quit smoking cigarettes 10 years ago. My x-rays are as if I never smoked.
