Does it piss anyone else off that in nearly every single article they refer to dipping as a "habit?"

Yea, it’s just a bad habit, nothing more.  Growing up, a bad habit was a mean nun.

California: Tobacco Lobby Snuffs Out Ban Proposed at Youth Baseball Sites

 

Looks like the tobacco lobby will allow tobacco use at kid games, but not major and minor league games.  Also were able to get an exemption for the vape, cigars, etc.

After reading all these stories, I can't believe I used to do that or would have wanted to buy one of these.

Australian woman suffers carbon monoxide poisoning after smoking tobacco in a Middle Eastern water pipe for an hour every day as medics warn she was exposed to the same toxins contained within 100 cigarettes

 

Users believe that smoking tobacco smoke which has passed through water is cleaner than more traditional methods. However, research has shown that a one-hour session on a hookah pipe could produce the same amount of smoke and harmful toxins as 100 cigarettes. 

 

 

'But a session of 30-60 minutes can provide the same amount of smoke as 50-100 cigarettes.

'Even if you forget about the smoke itself, carbon monoxide is produced in the water pipe.' 

After five hours of being in hospital the woman started exhibiting signs of a heart attack, although there was no chest pain or tightness.

Nine hours later her heart had steadied, but doctors say the circumstances could have been much more grim due to how difficult is can be to detect carbon monoxide.

Dr Wang continued: 'Carbon monoxide is a bit of a silent danger, it’s odorless, colours and not easily detected. Some of the complications of low oxygen exposure don’t really manifest immediately.

HARRISBURG — Cigarette smokers could soon be asked to cough up $1 per pack to help close the state’s $2 billion budget shortfall, but health advocates say even an increase that dramatic is not enough.

Gov. Tom Wolf proposes a 62.5 percent hike in the cigarette tax — already set at $1.60 per pack — as part of a broader budget plan. The governor wants to begin taxing e-cigarettes, cigars and smokeless tobacco too.

http://news.syr.edu/reminder-campus-goes-tobacco-free-july-1-25649/

To help ensure a healthy, productive, respectful environment in which to work, learn and live, Syracuse University will be a smoke-free and tobacco-free campus, effective July 1.

damn!

 

we chose the best time to quit dipping, because many places are going after smokeless tobacco also, thanks to the vaper craze on campuses and places of business.  For the longest time, dippers have been given the "don't ask don't tell" treatment.  If you ain't spitting all over the place and grossing people out, you would not be bothered.  This is no longer the case in many places.  Hell, I bet the airlines will start to crack down on it too.

Lots of addict speak going on with the SF Giant players reaction to the new law banning all tobacco in SF stadiums.

 

Here's an excerpt:  World Series MVP Madison Bumgarner chews tobacco but said he quit for about three months this spring before recently picking up the habit again. He said he will try to quit again before next season when the ban begins.

If you read the comments, you can tell they are addicts or definitely don't have a hatred for Nic Cage the way we do.

  • Companies fined Can$15.5bn - the largest damages in Canada's history

  • British American Tobacco said there are 'strong grounds' to appeal ruling

Most people still want to call using nicotine a "habit".  This lady was just trying to get a fix, whether it was heroin, nic, coke, booze, etc.  Cigs are $9-10 a pack where she lives.  She is a nic junkie, not a woman with a bad habit.

For now, a guy just has to drive to the next town over, but it could snowball to where all the towns are united.  That would place a 'minor' to find someone to buy for him/purchace nicotine over the internet, etc.  Like you said, step in the right direction.
