    I don't get why I still see people smoke normal cigarettes instead of vape:

    - It's much less dangerous to health to you and those around you.
    - It doesn't stink out you and everyone around you.
    - It seems to be cheaper.
    - It doesn't have the stigma/unattractiveness of being seen smoking.
    - Apparently you get the same, or similar, sensation/nicotine fix.

    Because vaping has become a trend for sad teenagers who think it's cool, and has therefore given it a terrible image.

    At our school we mock people who vape because all the 'chavs' and people who mess about at school do it.

    Thought this said 'Why don't people rape instead of smoke' and detected a slight imbalance of priorities

    The difference is surely psychological. Vaping doesn't satisfy the psychological addiction of smoking for many people and the psychological addiction is the most powerful

    I also feel the need to point out that nicotine is not the physically addictive element of cigarettes. Nicotine is not itself very addictive at all.

    And there was me thinking 'vape' was an alternative means of saying 'vaginal rape' :facepalm:

    The only thing missing from it is the second 'L' in successfully. Fallible technology, though. You can't knock it.

    Believe it or not health risks are part of what makes smoking associated with masculinity and power, men take risks, don't need approval from others and keep calm under pressure, nicotine addiction will reverse the benefits but if used wisely it's nowhere near as bad as the smoking is doom brigade think.

    Probably because they think vaping won't give them the same hit or satisfaction that smoking gives them, and a lot of people probably don't know where to start with regards to liquid, mods and coils etc. That and the fact you need to actually spend good money on a decent vape.

    OP is right though, vaping is far better and cheaper than cigarettes.

    No it doesn't, I both smoke and vape (only when I can't smoke, though), vaping doesn't feel half as good as smoking does. Cost, smell etc. are beside the point when you don't get the same feeling.

    Taking a **** has character. It has an identifiable smell. It has history.

    When you take a ****, you are following in the footsteps of many a great man that has come before you.
    Sorry but I couldn't resist. See edits.

    Both. This is how smoking has been marketed for a century, it might surprise you to find out the first anti-smoking campaign was led by none other than Nazi Germany. I'm not saying health effects are not serious, but in a free country people should be able to do unhealthy things (and they do a lot worse than smoking, when's the last time you ate fast food?)

    Pleasure is more important than health, being healthy for no reason is like keeping a fridge for 5 years longer than usual and celebrating even though you haven't put anything in it.

    Well if smoking is seen as masculine that doesn't make sense because of the reasons why people actually smoke. Eating fast food is worse then smoking?

    I recently got myself a 70w Kbox, that's a month after I lost my Kbox mini . It's pretty great for its price, as I got it for approx £35, plus Innokin iSub G tank which also wasn't expensive. Works perfectly, but I'm thinking about getting an RDA (cuz dem clouds innit).

    Ah right, half decent then. Just wanted to ask because I've seen smokers who've used cheap stick vapes and been put off by those.

    I use a Sigelei 75w, with a Nautilus Mini tank. Dunno if it's top notch, I just took someone else's word for it tbh.
