  1. Maddy, thank you for your amazing nomination! Good for you for stopping the worst habit in the world. I quit in 1999 and only wish I had found the courage to do it many years before. I am so proud of you! ❤


  2. I love the facts about you and I love Tina Turner! Congrats on quitting smoking. I quit cigarettes 5 yrs ago for the 3rd time, however, I vape. I use zero nicotine so it is just having something in my hand.


  3. I would like to have a vape on hand in case I really feel I need one, but we can’t have the nicotine here in Australia – very difficult to find because it’s illegal. What flavor of vape do you use?
