Teenage high school track star Sean Marsee dies aged just 19

For years, the Nicotine Industry has encouraged its customers to believe all sorts of health claims and reassurances about their products and about nicotine. One thing often repeated by promoters, users and smokers of electronic cigarettes is that, with tobacco cigarettes: "it's the smoke that kills - not the nicotine".

But try telling that to Sean Marsee, an Oklahoma teenager born in 1965 who was 'too smart to smoke', and considered an outstanding athlete. Marsee won 28 track medals in the 400 meter relay while running the anchor leg. His classmates honored him with a walnut plaque.

Marsee started his nicotine habit at age 12 (by using chewing tobacco - because he believed the health reassurances of the Nicotine Industry and was 'too smart to smoke'), after getting a can of free Copenhagen chewing tobacco at a rodeo.

He became a regular user and five years after starting his use, he contracted oral cancer. After a ten month battle with rapidly spreading cancer that started on his tongue, Sean Marsee died at age 19, in 1985.

As the headline of the Reader Digest article said "18-year-old Sean Marsee was too smart to smoke. But Sean's doctor believes that tobacco killed him".


Sean Marsee:


"I don't accept that smokers are addicted to tobacco. I think they have a habit... I believe the majority of smokers  could stop tomorrow - no, today - if they really wanted to."

Dr. Sandy Macara,
British Medical Association, 1996

"The nicotine inhalation habit induces a psychological dependency habit similar to that of a 43 year old teenager still living at home with mum and dad...

Smokers / vapers are addicted to nicotine inhalation about as much as someone might be addicted to living at home with mum and dad   - where life is made too easy for them to even think of moving out."
