Do you think electronic (E-Cigs) encourage younger persons to smoke?
I think it does....with all the flavors, it's still nicotine & can get you addicted.
I disagree, smoking a tobacco cigarette is far different than smoking an e-cigarette. The satisfaction from smoking an e-cigarette is not nearly as good as the satisfaction of smoking a regular cigarette. While I agree the addictive nature of nicotine may cause users to become addicted, the actual act of smoking a cigarette is "cooler" than puffing on a steel and plastic tube with a fake "cherry", that is usually some color other than orange. Disposable cigarettes are only good for a few days to a week, depending on usage. Rechargeable electronic cigarettes are a bit better in regards to not having buy a new device when the battery dies, but users need to buy refills, which could become pricey. Most electrinic cigarettes are not universal, meaning a user must buy the refills for the particular brand of e-cig they purchased. People who use e cigs tend to revert back to smoking cigarettes if using an e cig to cut back or quit smoking. Users who experiment with e cigs may end up using tobacco cigarettes if they cannot afford a new e cigarette or a refill pack. It is cheaper to buy a pack of cigarettes and a lighter than it is to buy an electronic cigarette. A cheap disposable electronic cigarette is around $8, a rechargeable will cost at least $20, refills cartridges are around $10 and can cost as much as $30. A pack of Marlboro are between $4.50 and $6.
I think wanting to fit in and be cool encourages kids to smoke. Kids wont start smoking just because someone says it tastes good. I cant even get my nephew to drink a smoothie because he doesn't like how it looks, no matter how good me or anyone else says it is. I don't understand why people think kids are so stupid. Kids make up their own minds, and by the time they are old enough to think about smoking, they are also more than old enough to accept personal responsibility.
Yes. As a smoker, there is a lot more to smoking addiction than just a physical addiction to nicotine. There are the oral and manual fixations, which are identical with electronic cigarettes. The making sure you have a lighter which is similar to having to charge an electronic cigarette. Besides, An electronic cigarette is meant to be a substitute or a cessation device. For a young person, it could easily be the beginning of something bad. By saying this is OK, is like saying it's OK for a young person to drink O'Doul's or other non- alcoholic beer or a toy gun that looks real. Nothing good can come out of it.
