If you don’t care.. Who will??? For those of you who have followed me for a while, you probably have heard this story before but I’m going to repeat it now…. I have a picture of my mom at a party with a cigarette in her hand… I don’t know why but I always remember it. Maybe it was because at first I didn’t know what it was… I was little when I first saw it. My mom was not an everyday smoker but it would seem socially something she did.
My mom died when I was 7 years old, after a severe asthma attack during which the lack of oxygen to her brain shut down all of its function. I have the same kind of asthma. It’s not sport induced, or allergies (although that triggers it), it’s a constant condition that I had as a child and I still to this day have. It’s the kind where you can’t smoke, because when you do, you feel it immediately.
As fate would have it, I’m the type that you can’t tell much to. I had piercings and at least one tattoo before graduating high school and I was sneaking cigarettes as a teen, socially smoking when I was 18 and then on and off again smoking as an adult. When I smoked I couldn’t run more than about a mile and I would get bronchitis regularly.
Someone in the Vape industry caught a picture of me smoking on my Instagram and offered to sponsor me. I started off with house juice and an ego C-Twist and quickly found a permanent solution to my off again, on again relationship with Big Tobacco. That was a little over 2 years ago.
I’m older than my mother was when she passed away- thankfully. I train multiple times every week and my lungs have never felt better when I do cardio. Better still- I don’t smell like smoke around my own kids.
Bottom line- for the countless stories like mine- don’t we owe it to FIGHT FOR OUR RIGHT TO VAPE?!?! Maybe you didn’t read the whole caption… Maybe you did.. Regardless, take the time to save someone you didn’t know… NOW!!! CALL TO SUPPORT #HR2508 HERE: 202-456-1111
