81. Opioids are the most addictive thing there is, but guess what? THEY'RE NOT POISONOUS.

Like, at all. Sure, you can OD on them. But they won't harm your organs or tissues as long as you don't overdose. They are NON-TOXIC. Literally.

In fact, by conflating 'poison' and 'dependency-producing', you're confusing two totally different concepts.

Alcohol ... is literally poison. Do you take it?

And trust me, I've kicked both nicotine and opioids ... I'm talking HARD CORE opioids.

There's not even a comparison in the withdrawal effects.

Nicotine is hard to quit because nicotine is a) legal, b) easily procured, and c) doesn't completely fuck up your life ... in the hugely obvious way that opioid addiction does. It doesn't wind you up in jail. You don't have to doctor-shop or buy dope on the streets. You're never going to have a $100/day nicotine habit. ETC ETC ETC.

BTW, this UCSF doctor your quoting? I don't even have to OPEN these articles to know EXACTLY who this doctor is that's writing this crap.

I'm going to bet $$$ to donuts that this article you're quoting is written by Dr. Stanton Glantz, am I right? I've not even looked, swear to Dog.

He's been one-man anti-vape crusader for almost 10 years now.

He's literally the only doctor in the world who writes shit like this.

Am I right?
