Indeed.

Anyway, loads of perfumes are way more disgusting than tobacco. Tobacco isn't that pleasant but we don't all have to act as if it were the worst smell on the face of the earth.

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.

Only if a pack of 20 cigs were around £1-2 because that is how much it costs for me to vape per day.

No I wouldn't smoke!
But as a never stopped smoker (because vaping or even NRT would never have existed) you wouldn't be aware of the smell - the question wasn't "if smoking was now harmless" it was if smoking was harmless i.e. it was, is and had always been harmless. Of course you aware of the smell now!! Wink
Yes well I understand where you are coming from, however when I smoked I was very conscious that my missus and me ponged of baccy, by the looks of disgust from some peoples faces.
It doesn't do anything for your self confidence, and that is far from "harmless" in my book! Thumbs Up

Regardless of harm..vaping is so much more satisfying than smoking...those big dense flavoursome clouds in comparison to whispy burnt tasting smoke...vape all the way!

£80.00 a week to smell like an old ashtray - no thanks.

RE: Would you smoke if smoking were harmless and there were no bans?
I'm saying no, I don't think I've ever enjoyed smoking, the only advantage of smoking is that you loose you're sense of taste and smell... At least that way I couldn't tell how horrible a cigarette tasted and I didn't know how bad I probably smelt to everyone else. It wasn't only health implications that made me turn to vaping.

RE: Would you smoke if smoking were harmless and there were no bans?
I always enjoyed smoking - not the smell lingering on clothes/furnishings etc. but the taste and effect. Quit for health reasons and went back years later to cigars again because I enjoyed it. Now I vape and no longer miss smoking. Only voted 'yes' because, as others have said, if smoking was harmless, vaping would probably have never been invented!

RE: Would you smoke if smoking were harmless and there were no bans?
It’s a difficult question, actually. At first I thought: “Oh yes! I would never give up smoking then!” But then I thought it over and decided that I would try to quit anyway because smoking, even it was harmless, is still dependence, and there’s no place for it in a self-reliant person’s life.

That's a definite YES, miss it, still dream about them, still absentmindedly looking for ashtray! I got a lot more done too! Kept cartons in the freezer, always had two packs in my purse, out the door to work, and get on with my day! .
