Vaping Scholarship Background
From lung cancer to heart diseases to asthma to stroke to infertility, name any disease and you’ll find smoking as one of the major causes behind it. If that doesn’t alarm you, consider this: smoking has killed many times more people than all the fatalities in American wars combined. We at QuitDay.org realize that smokers are at a never-ending war against their addiction. So, we want to challenge vapers to share their story how they successfully replaced smoking with vaping, and how it improved their overall health.
