More anti vaping marketing than anti cigs?

I have no dog in ether fight, however

Both have nicotine, sure, but when it comes to lung cancer and the like, it’s hands down worse to smoke cigarettes

So, why do I see way more marketing to stop vaping? Big tobacco lobbyists game just that strong?

This is a because the tobacco industry is marketing vape to the kids. All the flavored crap-tacular stuff that has been introduced is directed towards younger users. So, the medical industry and anyone with common sense (rare nowadays, I know) is stopping this attempt by large tobacco to rejuvenate a shrinking end-user market.

    That sounds like some nanny state crap. Governments around the world seem to understand harm reduction and are pushing vaping as safer than smoking. America, instead, chooses to smoke rather than let us have the safe alternative.

    I struggled with smoking for decades and quit within 2 days with a vape. I quit vaping about 2 months later. Nothing else would have worked like that.

    So the "medical industry and anyone with common sense." Can you explain the reason the "medical industry and anyone with common sense" thinks tobacco companies should have to pay exorbitant taxes on another product they have developed to deliver their product in a safer manner?

    Well tobacco is more deadly by a large margin.

    However it’s none of the governments damn business ether which way.

    I would say it’s allegedly marketed towards kids. I’ve never seen a legitimate vaping company market anything towards kids except the fact that they come in fruity flavors.

    Thats like saying wine coolers or pina colada are marketed towards kids because they are sweet.

    As gay as vaping is, it is by far way less worst then regular smoking. Last I checked though, you still have to be 18 to buy it from a smoke shop. No matter how fruity it is.

    I can speak with experience on this . I Smoked for almost 25 yrs. Tried everything to quit , nothing worked .
    Tried the vape and it made it very easy to weane myself off the smokes. I was on the vape for a little while and eventually put it down .
    I haven't touched either one in almost 4 yrs.
    I don't think I would have been able to quit without the vape. It will be a disservice to take it away from those who use it for what it was intended for.

    Except for the fact that most "using" seem to think it's perfect acceptable to puff away and spread their disgusting stench in public, like concerts, bars/restaurants, social gatherings, etc. 🤮

    True, but I’d rather have some cotton candy BS smell that goes away vs cigarettes where you damn near have to burn your clothes to get rid of the smell

    Don't know what they "vape" by you, but around here it smells like a mix of the soiled blue water from a porta-potty, and breath mints. I think the former is their breath and the latter the stench used to mask it.

    You've obviously never cleaned that residue off your windshield.
    I tried to get my wife to take up dipping.
    Vaping is just as bad.
    My wife hacks and coughs like a Model T 3000 miles past a tune up.

    It would nice if people could quit being such sensitive little bitches about everything. People seem to think they should have more right to not be annoyed than another person should have to be free.

    All cars get a residue on the inside of the windshield whether you smoke, vape, or not.

    I don't care what addicts do in their own space.

    I do care when they impose the stench from their disgusting habits on people trying to eat or enjoy a drink with friends.

    Addicts, nicotine in cracks of airplanes :rolleyes:

    Its nicotine, not meth. Just like alcohol it can be partook in a social fashion. Using words like “addicts” is just taking a group of people in society and trying to minimize them in someway for behavior that has been pretty common since…forever.

    You don’t see nicotine residue. The residue you see on your windshield is because the juice thing stuff is food grade glycol. Even if it was vaporized it would have to go somewhere. The nicotine is added to this food grade glycol.

    In cigarettes, the residue is from tar generally. The caveat is that nicotine when exposed to oxygen is yellow. However, I never seen evidence that nicotine alone is enough to cause yellowing. Never has anyone said that their teeth went yellow from nicotine gum for example.

    Thanks for making a great example.

    I bet you and the other girls gets giggly and obnouxis when you are "having drinks," did you ever draw the parallel that your behavior may annoy some people also.

    I don't piss on their clothes and in their hair when I need to relieve myself from my beer. Or take a dump at the table while they try to eat. I have the decency to go to the bathroom.

    Quit, you already proved you are the kind of crying little bitch I am talking about. Besides being a potty trained adult isn't much to brag about.....

    You probably hold in your farts until you can make it to bathroom, and wear a mint covered mask if you have bad breath. Some times us mortals forget there are some important mother fuckers walking the earth, that we should be careful not to annoy. Or we should help them make those annoyances illegal.

    All coffee mugs should be shaped like asses, and the liquid should poor out the hole, down the crack, and into your mouth. Unless you call it a latte, or frappe, or something like that. Then you have to drink it with a straw, and you must moan when inserting it. Addicts. :ROFLMAO:

    So I should say that all the vapes should be shaped like dildos? That way it could be a man or a woman's dick.

    It should be law that all vape things should look like dicks.
    What I see.. missing their boyfriends tiny dicks.

    We got a live one here, folks. :p

    The point was there's more marketing against vaping than fags, and in my opinion, well deserved - because at least fag smokers don't light up at dinner tables.

    That's from all the formaldehyde in the plastics and foam.
    It gasses off and deposits on the surfaces.

    It's also slowly embalming us as we drive, so we got that going for us...🤣🤣🤣

    Reminds me of what my brother told me about how the airframe mechanics felt when smoking was banned on flights. The mechanics were able to locate cracks in the airframe by looking for the nicotine stains.

    1988 article on "The recently imposed smoking ban on many commercial flights..."

    Smoking On Airplanes: Unreal Facts And Stories About When Smoking On Planes Was Outlawed

    It's pretty easy.
    Pressurize the aircraft on the ground and spray non- corrosive bubble solution on the surface.
    The leaks show right up.

    I dont give a damn, if folks huff fucking krylon paint, as long as it isn't in my truck.
    I am concerned about my wife, I'm sure vaping is safer than cigs....probably...maybe....who the fuck are you gonna ask and get a straight answer?
    Tobacco isn't the devil, but cigarette tobacco is vastly different from cigar or pipe tobacco or chew.
