Ecigs Worse than Cigarettes Says Local Man | Forum

Recently, I Had on my Ex-Smoker T-shirt and had my E-cig with me in public when a man approached and we started taking. Whilst discussing vaping and E-cigs he made a most astonishing statement. He said to me:
I heard that ecigs were worse than cigarettes!
I was horrified! And although I didn't think to ask him where he had heard this (I was too busy trying to counter and correct him), I thought to myself later, who is going around saying such things? What intelligent, educated, anti-nicotine zealot would dare say something like this? And if this one man is going about believing this sort of thing, might there be others who were similarly mis-informed?
It was as though someone had said to me that:
They had heard that the Earth was indeed flat, and that the reason sailing ships disappeared over the horizon was because they had fallen off the edge of the world!
I could not believe what I was hearing. Was I in fact H.G. Wells? And if so, where was my time machine? What year was it?
My son was talking to one of his friends about how happy he was that myself and his mom had given up cigarettes and started vaping (his idea by the way); and one of the "Nicotine/Tobacco" specialists from the High School lite him up on the evil E-Cig; tried to tell him how there is 10 times the Nicotine in one puff from an E-Cig and they produce as many carcinogens if not more than an analog... Thank god I've raised this boy right; not only did he completely make her look like the idiot she is; he quoted Dr. Farsalinos and started giving out links to CASAA and other places where actual Scientists and Doctors have written their findings.
The best part is he asked her what made her (a school councilor) a Nicotine/Tobacco expert a two day school paid conference that any idiot could have went to? He told her that his mom and dad who've smoked for over thirty years and haven't touched a real cigarette for close to three months now have way more experience in the field and he will go with what their Doctors and what he has witnessed before he will listen to a typical sheep indoctrinated by the public health and save the children experts!
She had no reply!

Good for your son!
So, so many people follow the heard instead of looking up facts for themselves. No shocking, just the way it is. Study your facts and be prepared to present them. Or just recount your own personal experience of improved health. I will follow my own body's results before listening to any ~ ANY~ so called expert trying to talk me out of my own personal experience.
People who come at you with this business of vaping being worse than smoking are generally in one of two camps. The first is those who heard it somewhere and can't resist parroting it, and the second are those who smoke, can't quit and resent you for having quit so they get defensive and have to bash what you are doing as worse than what they are doing.
Electronic cigarettes do not contain tobacco. That means you can still get your dose of nicotine without having to ingest the 4000 chemicals which are produced by the burning of tobacco. E-cigarettes are proven to help quit smoking. Vaping was effective in reducing smokers daily cigarette consumption.
