GUEST,Some bloke cigs and e-ecigs in the folk scene (65* d) RE: cigs and e-ecigs in the folk scene 15 Nov 17


Most pubs don?t allow vaping, and it really depends on a combination of interpretation of their licence conditions and whether a few smokers put off a lot of normal respectable customers.

There is no excuse whatsoever for smoking or vaping around unsuspecting people who don?t wish to inhale nicotine. Forget any argument over health etc, it?s far more simple than that. You should be able to go out these days and not be exposed to other people?s ignorance or addiction. Same as running the gauntlet of smokers immediately outside the door of a pub.

Vaping appears to have a lower incidence of oncological occurrence but don?t forget that it hasn?t been around long enough for robust public health epidemiology. My own opinion (I?ve been involved in smoking cessation work over the years) is that as a weaning off product, vaping has an excellent advantage. The problem is two fold; replacement rather than withdrawal and, tragically, children and young adults getting into nicotine addiction through using them as lifestyle appendages.

Smoking was common place up till comparatively recently. That doesn?t mean it is to be encouraged now though. It?s like saying that we gave thalidomide to pregnant women in 1962 so why not now?
