I respect your strong opinion. Personally, I think vaping is foolish and doesn't put the e-smoker far enough away from the old habit to be certain anything will stick. Having said that, I'm in the "The Perfect is the Enemy of the Good" camp. I want people to stop tobacco because of the tars and other carcinogens. Nicotene and Nicotinoids may kill cabbage loopers but humans can tolerate nicotene with little risk to health. This is why Society's first efforts to curtail smoking were in the form of low tar cigarettes, filters, pipes and so forth - nicotene without so much of the other stuff. Smoking is unique and weird this way. Other addictions, it is the active ingredient that's helping to kill the person with the dependence. But in the case of smoking, from the perspective of causing death in humans, the nicotene itself is not the problem. Everything else in tobacco is what causes emphysema, lung cancer, clogged arteries, strokes and so forth. If we could have a magic wand and make Nicotene vanish from the face of the Earth, yes, people would all quit tobacco soon enough. It is the Bait. But it isn't actually what sickens and kills people. Patches and gum are really a Godsend, I think. While I might like people to not get addicted to nicotene, what I care most about is whether they suffer; whether they die and I think the evidence is overwhelming, it is all the other components of tobacco that sicken, maim and kill.
