prisonThanks to a connection made via the electronic cigarette Reddit section, I was privileged enough to meet Jerry. Jerry is an employee at a prison somewhere in the United States (he prefers it not be named) and he’s taken an active role in helping inmates understand electronic cigarettes.

Jerry managed to quit smoking with the help of electronic cigarettes about 2 years ago. Now, he shares his knowledge with the inmates at his prison to help them understand electronic cigarettes and hopefully — most likely once they return to civilian life — make the transition.

jailThere’s not much more to say, but there is more to show. Jerry found demand for information so high that he’s since put together this document.

Not only does the three-page document provide answers to many questions, but it also shares Jerry’s own experience with smoking and e-cigs. It even gives a nod to the wildly supportive community at Reddit.

The document is by no means an official or refine piece of literature, but it stands as a wonderful example of just how helpful and encouraging members of the e-cig community can be to those around them — incarcerated or not. Jerry walks through the document with inmates and gives copies of it to those that ask. Some even pass it on to family and friends during visitation.

In short, Jerry sets a good example.

      I think that is wonderful. I smoked for 30 years and yes I do miss it I loved to do it. Now though I was finally able to quit and save my life and my lungs with vaping. I quit smoking completely on October 20, 2013 with the help of vaping and was able to quit that in January of 2014. Great job I share the news too. Keep it up it helps more than you know or can see.
