    I guess soon, the 1920s - 2010 era of smoking cigarettes, will be replaced by the new modern, and urban way of smoking.

    Electonic smoking! Not tried it yet, but wouldn't mind trying them. The actual cigarette is quite expensive, however, and I don't think it would be the same as holding a Marlboro in my hand. Anywayz, what do you guys think, has anybody tried them?

    Your opinions and views...wanted.

    Not neccessarily. I don't see the coolness of pulling black soot in to my lungs, but hey I still do it.

    But, did you watch the video? They don't actually look THAT bad. I mean, if they developed it far more, it could be a much safer alternative. Imagine how many lives would be saved!

    And imagine how many third world tobacco farmers would be out of business, etc!

    LOL, i know!! It would be a 'classy', and 'safe' addiction, and you would still be hooked if you smoked these. Well, 'inhaled vapoured' these, or some new word for smoking

    These days smoking has much more of a negative social stigma. What with the ban and all, I think someday people will consider smoking as bad as recreational drug usage. Not in our lifetime maybe, but someday.

    Yeah and then it's 50 quid for the next 100 refills which is approx 1500 cigarettes worth of nicotine?

    I think a more successful device would be a cigarette shaped gun that they put in their mouths.



    I hate smoking.

    people don't continue to smoke to look cool, they're addicted. I don't think is is cool to smoke anymore. So electric cigarettes are a good idea, it is the harm passive smoking causes, and the smell that people object. For the generation that just can not give up this would help future generations.

    I think they are cooler than smoking.

    ********. I don't smoke because I'm "addicted", I smoke because I enjoy it.

    Sounds pretty cool, but it might look a bit geeky at first.

    It'll fare better in pubs than elsewhere, IMO.
