    I saw this on the BBC and thought you should see it:

    Heat-not-burn tobacco 'is a health risk' - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-42328236

    Love the last paragraph
    Simon Clark from the smokers' group Forest said: "Electronic cigarettes are a step too far for many smokers

    He must have not tried a decent setup / juice.

    Or maybe he’s tried the latest big air 0.2ohm 8 coil smok doohickey that most b&ms will attempt to flog you and concluded that it’s far too different an experience from smoking to convert a lot of people. Which sounds plausible to me.

    Not bad mate! Took myself off the internets for a while.. had a pretty hard summer.. but all seems to be back to normal(ish) now .

    I see people still seem to be buying that dodgy juice you knock up in your spare room...

    Dripworx going well too..

    Heat not burn products were never intended as a give up strategy...they are an alternative to smokers who don't want to give up with an allegedly reduced risk. But our country is following harm reduction...H'n'B products don't fall under that scope. They were always going to be shunned to the level cigarettes are immediately after release in the UK.

    H'n'B has no link to vaping plain and simple, it is just a modernisation of smoking!

    I don't think that's a personal view, merely an echo of the excuses many smokers put for not trying vaping.
