I'm curious to know what you guys think about the electronic cigarettes

I don't know much about cigarettes (me being a non-smoker) but i know alot of people who do smoke and i wanted to hear people's opinions from both the smokers and non-smokers's perspectives about the electronic ones if its "better" or actually worse than the normal ones.you can also just say what you think about them in general

~Personally i think the electronic cigarettes are not only bad for your health(i think) but also "look cool" which actually encourages people to smoke from a young age.going as far as to make a large variety of flavors to attract people who think its "cool".sometimes in the streets i even hear teens bragging about all the flavors they've got...

What are you guys's thoughts on electronic cigarettes?

The fucking worst! People always smoke them indoors. Watching a movie at the theater and see a huge cloud of smoke. At the grocery store in line guy blows a big cloud. I don't need that shit in my lungs. If you want to inhale it by all means kill yourself faster it is your choice. Just don't assume everyone is trying to die as fast as you. Besides the use in public places where cigarettes can not be smoked I don't care really. My 2 cents.

They're still bad for you even if they don't contain nicotine.

It's not good man. Smoking is pretty much bad in general. Even smokers tell kids to never smoke that it's awful.

I think most of them look kind of funny. My father was a smoker, recently quit not that long ago. It was just the times he grew up in, nearly everyone had a cigarette back then. Maybe that's why actual cigarettes don't bother me much, but not so sure about electronic ones.

I don't like 'em. I don't like being around any form of people smoking. I like to breath fresh air.

I know people that started smoking this at age 14. I'm completely against all forms of addictions, tobacco, caffeine, sugar, etc.

They're pretty damn effective for quitting smoking (which I have seen first hand), and are a fairly inoffensive method to get a nicotine fix without all the carcinogens. I believe that the tech is a net positive for people's health in general. And that a lot of the fear mongering will in time prove to be unfounded.

Just to note; I don't smoke or vape. So my opinion is fairly impartial. I do, however, very much dislike the smell of cigarette smoke.

They're people who can't make up their minds if they want to really smoke or not.

E-Cigarettes: All the negative health consequences of smoking, with none of the sexy aesthetics!

I smoke casually and won't touch them. There's something about pulling out my lighter, flicking it open, lighting up a faint trail of ash and smoke, and breathing in deep while casually flicking it shut, that you just can't get with an e-cig. It's the ritual as much as it is the nicotine raise itself.

A big thing about e-cigs is the fact that FDA hasn't actually said much on them. Ultimately I've heard they are probably better for you then regular cig's but still bag and still have all the negative affects for second hand smoke. The best estimates I've heard put them at 1/5 to 1/3 as bad as a regular cig. I can't stand it when people smoke them in non-smoking areas though. That's just them being douchebags.
