Tobacco companies are lobbying to have “vaping” made legal to sell to any Australian.

If you want to stop smoking start reducing the amount you smoke. Then you will find a motivation that is not about your health. Early in the 1990s I decided that I did not want to be a shuffling, Ventolin inhaling, farting old wreck when my favorite niece had her kids. 2016 I spent a magical week in Tasmania with that niece and her daughter. If I had kept smoking—no way I could have done that or be preparing for a new life in Tasmania! Vaping would not have helped and when that became a thing I soon realised that if you were vaping nicotine you were not kicking the addiction.

When I found my motivation I stopped cold turkey. If you just worry about your health you just smoke more.

The tobacco companies are cherry picking research to show vaping is harmless.

If it has nicotine you are not beating an addiction. The more so as the act of preparing to “vape” mimics the action of lighting a cigarette.

Oil companies are cherry picking research to pretend AGW is not real.

Clutched good and hard by Madame Nicotine!

Once, when I was smoking, at like 3.00am, cold, I walked like 3Km to the service stations on South Rd, Darlington, only places open, just to buy a packet of cigarettes. Even more shameful shit just*to*get*smokes*

many a time when i would go out in the cold to buy smokes at ungodly hours, but if someone had asked me to go out for something that was actually importsant, not a hope, wait until morning

ahhhh, priorities!
