Thanks for the great article. My son is 15 y.o. Kid and I love him as much I can. Time ago I discovered he always lay down on the coach, don`t help his family, stopped to play soccer with his friends. All he needed nobody touches him… 1 month ago, I discovered he smoked. And he didn`t tell me about it for half a year! I was shocked and told we have to quit with it immediately. I have read on Vapingdaily how to make cold turkey correctly. And he doesn`t smoke for a few weeks. I think he became more active and hope he will survive it) Wish all luck with your kids))
