Hi everyone....I just thought people might be interested in a conversation I just had with an insurance salesman. I asked him why they have such an issue with nicotine use instead of smoking. He said even though they do know that it isn't the nicotine per-se that makes smoking and chewing so dangerous....it is the only thing they have the ability to test for. So they have no way of knowing rather you are smoking or vaping and to protect themselves they assume your smoking. I hate to say this...but that makes sense. The other issue they have is that they believe vapers will immediately switch back to cigarettes if they cannot get access to their vaping supplies. Again, unfortunately in many cases that is true. I personally could not honestly answer the question.....would you smoke if all of a sudden you lost your ecig? I can't answer it honestly because since I started vaping I have made dang sure I was never in that situation. I WANT TO BELIEVE that I would not smoke....I would use gum...a patch....even those hideous Commit lozenges...but I don't honestly know. Maybe this isn't news to many of you but it was something I have always wondered and I was happy to finally get an honest answer. So it appears that what REALLY needs to happen is we need to push for a different method of testing for TOBACCO use. Lord knows there is enough other crap in tobacco they should be able to test for something besides the byproducts of nicotine, no?
