I never figured out why you would fool your self with products like this. You either smoke your you don't. Claiming you are a non smoker when you are
using these products is ridiculous. You are just as addicted (if not more) to nicotine.
It's extremely easy to stop smoking. You sweat/have symptoms for two weeks and that's it. Everyone can handle that.
Man up and stop smoking or quit complaining about the rest of us who prefer not to get poisoned.
Why do you make the assumption anyone is trying to fool themselves? Most people who are addicted to smoking cigarettes are mainly addicted to the
nicotine. Nicotine by itself is not a terribly dangerous drug, it's similar to caffeine, and nicotine has been shown in studies to actually protect
the brain in many ways.
The dangers of smoking are the tar, carbon monoxide, radioactive fertilizers used in growing, etc. Inhaling burning plant matter is horrible for you
regardless of what plant it is. With an ecig there is no tar, carbon monoxide, there is no combustion period.
People who use ecigs are NOT smokers, what's ridiculous is your inability to decipher between two very easy concepts, which are combustion vs
vaporization. When you boil water are you burning the water? Do you call steam "water smoke" No, because that's stupid. Just like calling an ecig user
a smoker is stupid. They are not smoking, it's impossible for them to be smoking becuase THERE IS NO SMOKE, PERIOD.
This is not some semantics, there are very obvious differences. Just because you are not educated enough to tell the difference doesn't mean there
isn't one. [snip]
Why do you bring up still being addicted to nicotine? What does that matter? You are addicted to food, to air, to water, to human contact, to all
sorts of things, why does it matter if you are addicted to nicotine if it doesn't cause you any harm?
And to get deeper into the matter, ecig users are generally less addicted to ecigs, than they were to cigarettes. Cigarettes contain some freebase
nicotine which is absorbed quicker and is more addictive than the nicotine found in ecigs. Additionally tobacco naturally has many other alkaloids
that are responsible for the effects of smoking, some are addictive themselves, some make the nicotine addiction stronger.
Quit complaining about the rest who don't want to get poisoned? You're being dramatic and silly. Second hand ecig vapor is not poisoning anybody, and
until you can provide concrete proof it is, you're just posting bull crap.
You don't like ecigs, cool, everyone has their preferences. Don't turn your preferences into a judgement on other people or things, because you'll be
wrong, and someone will call you on it.
