Dick Puddlecote has joined the digital age of smoking. Like Frank and myself, he hasn't abandoned tobacco but is experimenting with the new gadget that is Electrofag.
Some will try it and prefer it, some won't like it at all, some will go half-and-half and even nonsmokers can give it a go with the zero-nicotine options.
Oh, I can imagine the puckering of a million Righteous anuses (ani?) with that statement. I told it to someone once and was close enough to hear the annular muscle squeak.
With no nicotine, it's flavoured steam. If you have sinus problems, it's like a portable version of that bowl of hot water with Vicks in it that you lean over with a towel over your head. It is no different to vegetarian burgers and sausages - looks like the real thing but with none of the stuff you object to included. There is no smoke, there is nothing to 'cling to clothes and hair', there isn't even nicotine if you don't want it.
Currently you can try one cheap because TECC are closing down and selling everything at half price. If you have a Titan, get some stock in.
This closure is disturbing. Electrofags are on the rise. I still meet smokers who have never even heard of them. Word is spreading - they won't take all of our tobacco away but this new form of smoking is a new and interesting thing. It's completely harmless too, despite the pronouncements of the despicable Duncan Banningtime.
It's especially disturbing because TECC were the ones who sided with ASH against tobacco.
Have they been tipped off? There's something in the wind, and it smells like second hand steam.
