Bubblegum and old socks — 4 Comments

  1. I've never seen the debate about vaping vs cigarettes addicting the children explained quite this way and it is absolutely delightful to read such common sense! I will have to remember this post next time I see someone arguing this very matter.  I'm sure they'd look like deer caught in the headlights! Thanks so much for your perspective! 

    • Welcome, Melody!

      As I said at the outset, I'm not particularly interested in cigarettes or electrofags, but I do have a strong interest in the Anti-Smoker lobby and the lies they come up with.  It has baffled me how they get away with this "gateway" crap when it is patently nonsense.  Kids these days are reasonably [and I cross my fingers as I type this] intelligent so why on earth would they choose something that is very expensive and lacking in variety when they can have a much cheaper alternative?  And even if the price was the same, electrofags win out with the choice of flavours.  It just doesn't make any kind of sense.

  2. You're right about nicotine being nonaddictive. I stopped three weeks ago and it was easy, well I missed them for a few days, for ten minutes a day tops.

    Put it like this; if tobacco is as "addictive as heroin -don't start!" as per the packet warnings, why do they have the "stoptober" month to get people to quit fags but not heroin?

    Because it's bullshit. It's a scam, this myth of addiction, to sell patches and gum. As for ecigs being a gateway,  then by the same logic coffee is a gateway to Buckfast because it's brown and has caffeine.

    • One of the problems they have with e-cigarettes is that they are very similar to those Pharma nicotine inhalers.  If and electrofag looks similar to a cigarette then so [nearly] does an inhaler.  Both contain nicotine, but apparently Big Pharma's nicotine is a different substance – non-addictive and non-poisonous.

      The "gateway" hypothesis is just a desperate attempt to confuse the public and force the lawmakers to ban the things.  It's an act of sheer desperation.
