I don't really understand what 95% safer means? Surely, they are either safe or not safe.
Sounds like a good idea.RupertRuddIf ecigs get on prescription I want my claret and single malt whisky on similar terms. As a treatment for my addiction.

Taking into account a wider perspective of costs the cost of smoking is still thought to exceed the tax revenues. Its not really possible to know how much of the 12 billion tax revenue goes towards the NHS as its all fungible.profilepicturesOther than that smokers produce between 7&9billion in taxation beyond their related health costs. I still think its odd how persecuted smokers are, whilst the drinkers cause bloody mayhem. Nobody ever had one too many B&H and started a fight.
