Threats and the cult of vaping

Comment

I think you are missing the point here., and I bet you are not a smoker and have never been a smoker. This is a problem when people start talking about things they haven't got a faintest clue about. Smokers don't care whether big tobacco companies are involved or not. They have been consumers of tobacco any way. They are "addicted". Many of them have tried patches, pills, inhalers, and it hasn't worked. Not everyone is strong-willed enough to fight that addiction. E-cigarettes give these people a lifelong to overcome the life-threatening side of this addiction. It is clear that big tobacco companies will be trying to gain a share in the market when they are losing share from their tobacco industry. Who cares? I'd prefer these companies to produce e-cigs rather than the real thing. It can save lives. Some people call e-cigs lifestyle products. They too have never been addicted to cigarettes, and they don't know that for a smoker, e-cigs are not exactly a pleasant experience, let alone lifestyle choices. There is no "cult". Vapers are just upset with people who condemn them, without knowing what they are really talking about.
