So for all those people who slagged them off, including all those numpty councils and councillors who knew best, it appears that in fact they knew sweet f*** all.

I'm a lucky so and so that has never smoked a fag in his life, and never will, however I know loads of mates who are still working and possibly not dead due to e-cigs.

I disagree. The vast majority of ex smokers who vape use them as a replacement for fags, not as a method to give up completely. They then fall off the nicotine waggon and start smoking again. I started smoking at sixteen, and gave up completely when I was 21. Never touched one since. To me, ecigs are to smokers what methadone is to junkies. Your mates are still chugging away on their vapes, I would guess. Have many, any, given them up?

What’s that got to do with it?

But lots of people use them rather than smoking, and even if they do go back at some time, even that is a small step forward that can hopefully be repeated in the future.

Several of my mates have tried everything, but the vape is helping them stop nicotine intake, and for that I thank the Lord for vaping.

I just wish they had arrived before smoking killed my mum. :sad:

How the f**k can they cause an asthma attack when they've got pharmaceutical glycerin in it
