Meh, other companies are fucking me just as hard. Petrol companies are even worse. We're all corporate slaves, but I LIKE smoking. Never been about addiction, tho I'm sure I am, it's a hobby. I got cigars and pipes and medwakhs and a kiseru and nasal snuff and loads of shit.
But, like I said -- losing some of the enjoyment is an argument I actually care about.
Oh, and as for cost, vaping costs more for me, period. RYO tobacco is 30-60 cents a pack and I smoke 6 cigs a day, only on work days. But vaping is seeming more fun, and there's more community, and there's fewer assholes insulting my intelligence assuming I smoke because I 'just can't help it'.
EDIT: Ah, I'm clearly getting pissy -- just wanted to share that my tastes are changing. I've always known smoking muted my taste obviously, but it's an interesting experience. I'll bow out of this for now. Come back to the conversation if I decide to quite or something, and otherwise keep mum, there's no reason to argue pro-smoking because I'm not really, I'm just pro ME smoking
