So you are saying that cigarettes, not nicotine, or cigarettes in conjunction with nicotine are what is addictive. That would be a new one on me, I will research that further for my own understanding.
Since nicotine poisoning is not uncommon, I will not try to parse the wording. Not enjoying smoking may be another way of saying can’t hack it, perhaps a more inclusive way of putting it. Keeping in mind your assertion that it is not the nicotine alone that is addictive, I have known many people who tried and did not enjoy it, many who worked through the initial discomfort of smoking and became addicted (whether chemically or habitually is debatable and perhaps irrelevant), and some who were addicted with their first cigarette. As I have told my children, you don’t know which type you will be until you try...
Yes, I have seen good in it from people who have been lifetime smokers who used it to quit. I am not sure I see any good in high school age kids using it for kicks.
antidisestablishment - note I did not state “there ought to be a law” anywhere in my posting. I maintain my position that “vaping” seems to have become a craze that does not seem to have been fully examined beyond its money saving and tar saving aspects. To my way of thinking, anything that reaches such as state of faddishness requires closer examination, with the default position being that someone is marketing something to us, which may not be all good.
You have a point, especially if the information in the above post stands up, regarding nicotine vs caffeine, sugar, or whatever one may choose as a vice (if they are even that - not sure where you get the “crime” inference out of my post). Any or all of those things can be used in moderation, or can control you and rob you of your status as a man exercising dominion over creation. (aside, the individual for many reasons can be the last person to notice when that line has been crossed - I don’t know you, and therefore can only make the charitable assumption that you have a enjoyable activity which does not hinder your personal walk or life - your friends and family may give you a different take, or may affirm that).
It seems that our culture has completely done away with even the hint of an idea of moderation versus life controlling addictions of many kinds. So when I see a popular delivery system for a drug which has removed he icky smell, social stigma, and many more obvious health concerns for perhaps only hidden ones, I want to say “what’s going on here?”
