I think some of you may be missing the point here. Paul has said he was a pipe smoker and converted to vaping. I have just said I'm in the process of converting from tobacco to vapour! I have smoked for 45 years. I would have thought that, especially on this forum, a little support would have been preferable to just giving Paul a hard time over his interpretation of the data that he has seen.
I have resisted the temptation to join in the threads about drivers who choose their own speeds according the conditions they consider ok. IMHO it is they who deserve a hard time rather than those who have given up smoking, but if anyone wants me to join in in those threads, I can give graphic and emotional details of dealing with crashes caused by that very choice and the subsequent effect on everyone touched by that choice.
Cheers Malc - much appreciate your words. I'm big and ugly enough though...
It is funny... I started this thread as a small woodworking project (although I stupidly opened it in the wrong section) and not a debate about the comparisons of smoking verses vaping, but I should have known better I suppose. Some people are only too quick to jump on your back to try and prove a point without knowing all the compromising facts.
It must be difficult for you to hold back at times when reading threads about reckless road users when you've witnessed unnecessary carnage in your former profession - well done to you!
