Excuses For Not Switching To Vaping
 
# 1 : Thursday 13-4-2017 @ 12:23
 
 
I just cannot understand people not switching to vaping, when it is so radically cheaper, and only marginally more hassle than rolling your own cigarettes.
(Not even mentioning extremely likely to be significantly less lethal)

What's your excuse for not switching, if you are still one of these feeble minded people who took on smoking in the first place?
(I have heared a lot of excuses over the years, I wonder if you can come up with an original one!)

There is plently of metal alloys and other chemicals coming through vaping. Its still nicotine addiction. Yeah there might be a few hundred less chemicals in your vape but don't fool yourself you are not nicotine dependant.
I know loads of people addicted to vaping.

Of course it is addictive: it is nicotine.
Of course it is deadly: it is chemical crap fumes.

But it is massively less deadly than cigarettes, no more addictive, it does not smell horrid, and it is massively cheaper. You still kill yourself, but slower, and you disturb less people around you.

(By the way I am neither a vaper nor a smoker, nor have I ever been)

Of course stopping altogether is better.
Of course the long term objective for vapers should be to reduce nicotine intake, then quit.
(Which is more easily controlled with eliquid which is clearly graded in % of nicotine)

But all that are no reason to stick to cigarettes!

How is the truth adverse to addiction advising?
Should only addicts have their say in addiction discussion because, like, you have to be addicted to understand it?

Welcome to a world where hospitals are run exclusively by the sick. Where oncologists have to be dying of cancer to practice, and where the blind lead the blind.

Remember when mobile phones first came out and people used to wave them about like status symbols (the movements were quite obvious).

I see people doing that with crazy custom Vape thingies these days
They look like total neck beard knobends.

Probable reasons some people, who are smokers, have not switched to vaping:


They are suspicious of it, for it is new.


They smoke for pleasure, satisfaction, or pacification, and are not attracted to the notion of replacing that de-stressing ritual with an alien compromise in case that compromise negatively impacts their disposition or consistency either professionally or personally.
i.e., a writer with a 18 month deadline to his next book, a social worker who uses her smoke break to clear her head and think objectively about a case she working on. Or a person in a difficult relationship who sometimes uses a smoke to cool off after a row rather then letting tempers escalate and say something regretful.


They see themselves as occasional smokers, i.e., only when out socializing, or the odd time on stressful days, or after sex, and don't identify with the need to take drastic action and go around buying contraptions.


They see smoking as a social status, or a community they identify with, i.e., Pipe Smoker, Cigar Smokers.


They see smoking as a fetish, and Vaping don't do it for 'em


I would have though reasons like this would be mostly obvious.

Some of them @greenmanpp I had never considered, and some of them are actually good reasons.

9 days off the smokes. I swore I'd never vape but I am. I went straight onto the lowest (6mg) you can get.

I have to say I do feel much better. But am I cheating? I'm still taking nicotine but at a reduced rate plus a few thousand less chemicals.

I've also noticed the savings this week of €109.50 in just 9 days. I got a present of the vape and the juice at a fiver does me nearly a week.

First of all: congrats!

It is not cheating at all.
You are reducing the nicotine addiction to its lesser harmful expression.

Nicotine addiction has some many components, that you can be excused for not tackling all of them at once. You are keeping the nicotine intake, and the hand-to-mouth gesture, and the inhalation and expulsion of smoke.
And all that with less deadly chemicals, much less disgusting smells and stains, much less passive smoking from people around you, and less cost.

As long as you find the right balance that helps you phase out as many expressions of the addiction as you can, it is not cheating: it is giving it a earnest try, and increasing your long-term chances of success.

And if you were to get stuck at that stage, it is a lesser evil.
Don't listen to holier-than-thou goodies 2-shoes: they are not dealing with what you ave to deal with; you are.
