Ban ill-informed

THE PROPOSED ban on e-cigarettes in public places is ill-informed and a policy decision which could have serious implications. The e-cigarette, if supported and promoted without the scaremongering which is prevalent, could effectively make tobacco usage a thing of the past. The Royal College of Physicians, NICE and ASH all report potential benefits, yet Mark Drakeford knows better. To restrict the use of e-cigarettes will encourage people to return to smoking and perpetuate the health problems of tobacco. It is not a gateway to smoking. It is a gateway from smoking to vaping a far healthier alternative. If the government want to ban e-cigarettes then no doubt they will do so, but let’s not pretend it is in the name of public health.

When I was a infant I sucked on mam's teats, when I was in school I sucked on gobstoppers , when I was a youth it was a choice between a fag and what's under a girls blouse, when I was an early adult it was less of the underblouse and more of the fags, then when thirty odd it was a pipe, with an occasional cigar, ..............then I grew up.


E - cigs, ( what a stupid concept they are) are just another breast substitute. Of course I am referring to the male of the species, what the distaff side are substituting for is too rank for me to mention on here

Lets suppose that what you say is true and oral satisfaction is part of the addiction of smoking , E-cigarettes are still a safer way of getting that satisfaction. E-cigs save lives - rather more important than amateur psychology in promoting public health.
