Sean's endorsement of Juul/Nicotine Addiction


#46

What should e-cigarette companies do to reduce teen vaping, in your opinion?


#47

Eliminating flavors is probably the best and perhaps only option they have.


#48

If it works it works. I tried to talk to my aunt during Thanksgiving, but I didn’t give a good pitch.


#49

I like flavors. I’m closer to 40 than 30 but I still enjoy a coffee flavor.


#50

I understand where they are coming from.

But twenty years ago, the percentage of kids who smoked cigarettes was higher than vapers plus cigarettes smokers today - and some of those kids (me) need all the help they can get, now.


#51

I cannot tell if you are serious.


#52

I am. It feels great


#53

Juul has already done that.

Which I’m upset about.

I buy bootleg Juul pods, in tasty fruit flavors. I would, again, be very upset if that happened.


#54

The smoking Nazis seem to think so.


#55

I’ve heard several teens call in to his show, they are listening and it’s not even debatable.


#56

Is it cheaper than smoking?


#57

I would love to hear TDii’s view, but the research I did was the Juul was slightly more expensive than smoking, but if you were to purchase a more expensive vaping device and bought the e-liquid it would be quite a bit more inexpensive than cigarettes.


#58

From my experience, as of now it’s costing me the same amount.

It’s a really high amount. But it hasnt gotten worse.


#59

I was just thinking a lot more people would quit if it was cheaper than smoking, like a Walmart brand device or something……….


#60

I was smoking about 10 packs a week. In Virginia, that’s about $65 bucks. My bootleg Juul packs have been costing me about $55 a week.


#61

So it’s a bit cheaper. Lots of states are more expensive to smoke than Virginia as well.


#62

I recently learned my lesson about buying bootleg cartridges. It wasn’t nicotine, but I did waste 100 bucks.


#63

In terms of cigarette prices, I believe Virginia is tied right at the bottom of the list.


#64

At my local vape shop, there are products of three companies that all sell Juul-compatible pods - cheaper, stronger and more flavors than real pods.


#65

38th most expensive state.
