Electronic Cigarettes

I've seen online commercials for years, but they've just recently sparked my interest when I heard that Charlie Sheen sponsors these. For what I've gathered, many brands are tobacco-free, help users quit nicotine, and are much more affordable. Authoritative figured are working towards banning these e-cigs throughout the world, yet I really don't see why. Normal cigarettes are still legal in major parts of the world. The big controversy right now is that they're "cute, colorful and fruity", aiming towards the younger population and easy gateways to being addicted. What do you guys think? Should E-Cigarettes be treated equally as normal cigarettes, or be have more banning policies laid out?

Personally, I am indifferent.

I smoke, and I tried the e-cigs. They didn't help me at all. The only way I know of that doesnt involve 100% mental will is Chantix. That will get you to quit in a week.

But personally, I don't care if they are banned, or if they are legal. Because either way, I won't use them.

Well I don't think they should be banned unless we ban cigarettes too. Which I am down for. Anyway, they are less harmful than cigarettes, at least the ones I have seen are, and really, if a kid wanted to smoke, thekid would find a way! It certainly isn't the taste people are addicted to.

Why would you want to ban cigarettes? If you don't want to smoke you don't have too, why should you care about other people doing it? Most smokers would be happier smoking than having their lives saved.

Well because I know a lot of smokers and some of them smoke around chldren or even while they are pregnant which is horrible. I also know people that have families that have died smoking and left their wife to take care of all their children. More and more people are doing it and honestly, it smells awful.

Also, take this story for example. I know this guy that has a wife and 6 kids, the kids are: 1,2,3,4,8, and 10. He recently had to go to the hospital for lung problems and recently both of their parents died to guess what? Lung cancer. Both of them were single children. So if he had died from that, he would be leaving his wife with 6 kids that she will have to raise well in to her 50's alone. She doesn't have a job, so she couldn't make any money and she has no family so she couldn't borrow money, her credit sucks so she couldn't get a loan. So basically if he died, her and their 6 kids would not have anything to do. She would have to probably give them to CPS and become homeless at that point. All because of an addiction to cigarettes.

With the smokers would be happier logic, we could say the same thing about hardcore drug addicts. Most smokers do want to quit though, but when they get stressed they get cravings and go back to cigarettes.

Yeah that is kinda the problem.... Of course, if you are me, you don't want to quit to save yourself. You want to quit to make your half siblings happier.

I never smoke around young children. I don't smoke around anyone who isn't a smoker themselves. So if I am killing anyone, it is someone who is already killing themselves.

I understand, but everything kills innocents. Alcohol, driving, someone not involved is going to die everyday. You can't ban it all because of that.
