    Absinthe Part II

    SWEET MUTTERFICKERS!

    2 glasses of absinthe is like taking 5 shots if you drink it too quickly...

    I have to go to work tomorrow. I'm not prepared for the imminent cottonmouth.

    I've had a half a bottle of [brand] 80 proof vodka and I'm nowhere near drunk.

    I think I may have developed a problem and need to make a life change.

    A rant due to the FDA

    Vape is to tobacco in the same way major energy drinks are to coffee...

    Most eliquids do derive their source of nicotine from tobacco, THEREFORE they must be tobacco products.

    Many caffeinated beverages derive their source of caffeine from coffee when the beans are decaffeinated, THEREFORE they must be coffee products.

    See the problem?

    As the title strongly implies, I recently started vaping (again, after trying nicotine patches, gum, and wellbutrin) to stay off the cigarettes. As the title also strongly implies, I recently got myself SMOK's BBB tank.

See the problem?

Vaping is a form of harm reduction. Let me make a comparison: contraceptives are also a means of harm reduction. Just because sex could spread STDs or result in unwanted pregnancies, does that mean we should refrain from sex?

I thought not.

Vaping allows people to, with relative safety, enjoy nicotine (or just flavors, 'cause there are 0mg/ml nicotine eliquids... That's right, ZERO nicotine... Are these tobacco products?), just like contraceptives allow people to, with relative safety, enjoy sex. Seatbelts allow people to, with relative safety, enjoy driving.

Need I go on?

I vape because cold turkey failed, nicotine patches failed, nicotine gum failed, wellbutrin failed, and just about any combination of the aforementioned failed. I like my nicotine buzz in the morning more than caffeine.

I'm addicted to nicotine like you are to your morning coffee.

BTW, there are non-tobacco sourced nicotine eliquids now. How the hell are those tobacco products?

Diacetyl? Debunked. Formaldehyde? Debunked. Gateway drug? Debunked. Explosive vapes? Only if you are competing for a Darwin Award (so... Debunked). Where oh where is the DEMONSTRABLE HARM vaping does?

Vaping isn't smoking, so stop treating as such.
