Listened with my son

Listened with my son while traveling for soccer. He made fun of it here and there but he listened and for that I’m thankful.

Somewhere out there, there is a liberal afraid someone is having a good time

1.) I used Vapes to quit a 20 year tobacco habit. I’ve been slowly decreasing the dosage of nicotine until it was zero when I quit that too
2.) people liking something that is unhealthy and you disapprove of is not a reason to ban it.
3.) virtually every anti-Vape study is funded by big tobacco, the pharmaceutical industry, and the politicians they have in their pocket.

Jessicas wife ,

Anything that Laura hosts, is gold!

I believe that I could listen to Laura Beil read a newspaper and I would enjoy it lol! She is hands down one of my favorite voices as a hosts to listen to!! This is an interesting story for sure and as a smoker myself I’m thoroughly enjoying learning the back story here! Very engaging and a 10 as always!!!
