There is an argument that we’re more likely to value something we have to fight for, and it appears that the fight to save ecigs is only just beginning. It shouldn’t be that way though. The people arguing against ecigs are drumming out the same tired old lines sic ad nausem, and it’s all been dis-proven. Every article that argues against ecigs can be summed up thus:
There was diethylene glycol found in one (generation 1) cartomiser in one test. It shouldn’t have been there. If it were common, then millions of vapers all over the world would be dropping like flies. We’re not.
Please change the record, it’s boring.
There is no evidence to support any take-up of tobacco smoking by young people trying ecigs. I have seen NO studies that support this argument. Please post ANY studies which prove the gateway effect in comments here, or on my twitter @bekijane because I’d love to see them.
Teh ‘candy’ flavours. Because adults can’t enjoy bubblegum and candyfloss.
For the love of PETE can we get on with getting the message that gen 2 devices are a direct replacement for burning tobacco out to smokers please. I needed to be told this three years ago which is why I support the advertising of ecigs as widely as possible. With a target audience of adult smokers who do not intend to stop tobacco use. We may be able to voluntarily tell big tobacco to go stuff themselves IN MY LIFETIME if we do.
