Ok, so, would you?

EDIT: Taking into account that nor being harmful and there not being any kind of bans on cigarettes you'd never have quit smoking for ban/health reasons... You could have quit anyway, of course.

Not if vaping was equally harmless and ban free

RE: Would you smoke if smoking were harmless and there were no bans?
yeah, I probably would - I used to really, really enjoy smoking and stopped purely for health reasons

RE: Would you smoke if smoking were harmless and there were no bans?
I prefer vaping now to be honest,better flavours,no stinky stale smell,and plenty of faffability if you are bored

vaping is a passion ,not just a hobby,

RE: Would you smoke if smoking were harmless and there were no bans?
No I would not go back to smoking if I was paid and even if it had no health risks. Just feel so much better vaping and find it more satisfying; more interesting and my wife is so much happier. (Although that may be tied up with the health thing tbh).

Lots of other small pluses like no one complaining about the smell and slightly more (not much) freedom about where I vape.

RE: Would you smoke if smoking were harmless and there were no bans?
I would probably have still been a smoker. Ecigs would probably not have been invented though as there would have been no need for them. Confused
