HelloYesVapor ciagarettes are still bad for the heart. They have nicotine, one of the most addicting, heart unhealthy drugs there is.See your doctor for an exam, and for a program to stop nicotine completely, for weight loss, and to make sure you are in shape for an exercise program. OK, so that is an initial answer….Please use reply to expert if you have further questions. When you are ready, please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent]. If you forgot something, come back. I am here daily.
