Burley and Candy, Candied Cavendish, and M-Type Tobacco.
Do you feel that the media portrays vaping honestly?
No, they don’t portray it as a safer alternative.
I have been cigarette free for over a year. I have replaced it with vaping completely. All of my doctors see a definite improvement in my breathing. I don’t wheeze as often as I did. I can walk two large dogs three hours a day. I just want to say thank you Plume Room for making the best e-juice I’ve ever had. No other brand has been as satisfying. Your flavors are excellent. Also Burley and Candy goes excellent in the morning with a cup of coffee!
