Vapor Opera with the Opera Company of Brooklyn, announce a Smoking Cessation Opera—Amahl and the Night Visitors, Dec. 19, at 7 p.m.
WHY SMOKING CESSATION TOOLS/RESOURCES
A life-threatening illness struck the founder of OCB in 2007 and prescribed “legal drugs” caused his liver to decline in function. To the dismay of doctors, the liver was cured 100 percent by vaping. Now Maestro Meetze teaches the benefits of vaping as part of “Smoking Cessation Classes” to 120 dental students and 80 medical students at United State’s # 1 hospital: Columbia NY-Presbyterian Hospital.
