Right . A little bit about me. I quit smoking almost 5 years ago. I have been using 'ecigs' for the last 3 years. you tell me if im still a smoker.
This story is really about life without cigarettes and the supposed improvements.
Look i wont lie, abit of extra money and an improvement in your health is something that makes a difference.
But lets not get carried away OK.
Life is so full of anxiety and disappointment that sometimes I wonder if its worth staying quit. I would say its steady at 51% to quit and 49% to continue to smoke. Does that make it worthwhile? You tell me. Because frankly I dont reckon it does. Im just speaking from my heart OK.
Secondly in view of the frightening increases of the excise on cigarettes i feel that we have just gone from one extreme to another! Back in the 50's, 60's,70's and 80's the Govt. , the marketers and the Tobacco industry ALL were in a common agreement that yea there were dangers with cigarettes but hey look how pretty the packaging is. Now however the frightening cost of smokes ($21 for a pack, $200 FOR A CARTON!!) just scares people into submission. The way the industry has been regulated emphasises a 3rd world mentality ;using coercion and fear.
And me, and you lot are left carrying the can. Sorry if I have offended anyone but that is my story.
