is all well and good on the surface, but the plausible deniability only
goes so far when you consider that cigarettes are still being sold and
the Australian government is still raking in millions of dollars in
taxes. It's like a prostitute on the corner still working their beat but
wearing no makeup because prostitution is bad and she doesn't want to
be accused of promoting prostitution.
This isn't about the harmful effects of tobacco. That's a given. It's about the hypocrisy coming out of both sides of the Australian government's mouth. "Tobacco is bad!!".... "But we'll still take THAT tax money!!".....
Nicotine is addictive and many people cannot quit no matter how many nasty pictures they see when they buy a pack of smokes. So beyond the smoke and mirrors of money and morality, what options do smokers have with the rising costs of tobacco cigarettes and the prospect of being grossed out every time they reach for a cigarette?The logical answer is to quit. This is the best option... but as stated earlier, what if someone has tried to repeatedly quit and failed? Quitting smoking is best, but for many this simply isn't an option so they keep smoking regardless of the price hikes and bans of all sorts.
Like the Sun appearing over the eastern horizon after a long dark night of abuse by tobacco companies... electronic cigarettes have slowly been penetrating the public consciousness as the go-to option. With real nicotine and an experience that seriously replicates the smoking experience, smokers finally have a viable option/alternative.Throw off the shackles. You no longer have to subject yourself to Big Tobacco OR the government's hypocritical mood swings. Tobacco cigarettes aren't the only real option on the block any longer for those that just cannot seem to quit.
