Tobacconists angry against shops e-cigarettes

With the rising price of tobacco and the growing market of electronic cigarette, a growing number of shops open in all the cities of France, to the chagrin of tobacconists who see their costs increase along with sales tobacco down.

Tobacconists war against cigarette electronique L’argument highlighted by tobacconists is that the electronic cigarette is part of tobacco products because of the nicotine content of a refill for electronic cigarette . A force to witness the opening of stores e-cigarettes, sometimes in front in the same street , tobacconists helplessly to a booming market beyond their almost completely.

Because even if we find the electronic cigarette in a tobacco shop, the product is a sales demonstration and guidance that requires time and investment on the part of the seller. This time , tobacconists have not due to customer need in general use as quickly as the products are not limited to tobacco but also extend to the press , gadgets, products of the French games, etc.

Products elsewhere on which they could further develop their sales to fill the shortfall of tobacco.

This puts pissed most tobacconists is the tax burden imposed on them , unlike the resale of e- cigarettes and e- liquid which is not subject , for the moment, no specific charges except course of VAT.

Why electronic cigarettes work and Nicotine Patch doesn’t?

It is well known that all psycho-neurologic addiction is associated with a habit. Among smokers the need to smoke after certain actions of their daily chores is very common. For example, having a coffee after getting out of bed, going to the bathroom after meals, etc. In short, the brain of a smoker has learned that after certain actions it activates the mechanism of addiction, and the smoker will feel the immediate need for a cigarette.

Well, a nicotine patch is a passive solution, hitting the patch to the skin and forgetting it’s there is not involved in your daily activities at any time.

The electronic cigarette is different, as is an active substitute and is specially designed to fool the brain and its mechanisms of addiction.

How is this achieved?

We list the features that enable the electronic cigarette to replace the actions associated to the mechanism of addiction of the traditional cigarette:

1. The electronic cigarette is similar to a traditional cigar shape, so you keep your hands busy and you decide when you’ll inhale the vapor and nicotine dose.

2. The electronic cigarette emits a warm, dry steam to produce a “blow to the throat”, which is very similar to the traditional snuff.

3. The electronic cigarette has a tank to be filled as it is consumed, and also needs other care. An activity that requires your attention and that supplies social gestures like rolling a traditional cigarette, lighting it, etc…

What if I am denied the legal right to smoke my electronic cigarette?

Rarely are there cases in which you will be denied the legitimate use of your Electronic Cigarette within a facility that regulates the use of Traditional Snuff.

Usually, if any employee (of the bar manager or security) realizes that you are smoking within the facility, they will usually come to you with the intention to tell you that smoking is forbidden but of course, if they already know about the existence of the electronic cigarettes, they leave you alone. If they do not know, usually, you will review the operation and effectiveness of the electronic cigarette and end up continue smoking.

In case you still denied the right, we recommend that you behave naturally and ask for a complaint form.
