from some of the responses on this forum one thing is pretty clear. For a lot of non smokers its not about second hand smoke or concern for smokers health, its about passing judgement on others. Maybe I should judge them on their caffiene addiction to (because this is what it amounts to after all the carcinogens are removed). I am going to try this and and hope they get me off my ten year tobacco habit and my spouse who actually cares about my health is very supportive. The rest of the folks passing judgement can go to hell.

It's well known most dummies and 'stupids' are cigarette smokers. Every time you see a smoker you may well be looking at that type of a person.
Like our president for example.

Smokers: Jump on this E Cig any way that you have to. I've been smoking for 23 years and have tried to quit numerous times with the patch and gum. The E Cig has helped me drastically cut down to the point that I'll be able to quit this year for good. I bought the Crown7 Hydro. It works. It's one of the best.

The fact that anyone is up in arms about this, particularly a very profitable nonprofit group dedicated to health, proves that they don't give a rats A about people actually quitting. It never has been about that and I've always known it. It doesn't take a genius to see that they are still trying to corral us into products made by big pharm and big tobacco. Fight for this product!

To all you self-righteous twits who have never smoked and have zero idea of how nasty withdrawal symptoms can be, go scream at some heroin addict and tell him he is weak for using methadone.
And they should also scream at all the addicts in front of them in line at Starbucks who can't function without their morning caffeine fix...

I think e-cigarettes are pretty cool. Granted, I'm not fully up to speed on all the pros and cons. At first glance, I can see that as a non-smoker, I'd benefit from not having to be exposed to cigarette smoke, something I really dislike. Austin
