I call it v-liquid because it’s for vaping. Not e-liquid because I personally think calling these vaporizing devices, e-cigarettes adds the same connotations as cigarettes which they are not. I smoked for 25 years and at times I tried to quit by patches, gum and medications but they all didn’t help. Vaping has helped me enormously. I’m currently 85 days clean, no small accomplishment in and of itself. It wouldn’t have been possible without vaping.
