This is nothing more than people getting a boner over telling others what NOT to do.

I'm about as anti-smoking-everywhere as they come, and I don't have a problem with vaporizers. The smell of regular cigarette smoke and how it infests clothing and hair is what's offensive.

Mr. MMM just switched to an e-cigarette (after years of my revulsion to the smell of regular cigarettes) (unsexiest smell in the world). I'm hoping it is a healthier option for him. It's already proven a stinkless option. He's never smoked in the house, but I could hardly stand to be in the same room after he came in from a smoke. He fired up the e-cig while in the den last night and there is no odor. None. Thank you, smart inventor people.

Yeah there is virtually no chance that even a sizeable minority of "BAN IT ALL!!!!"  people would be swayed by a peer reviewed, non-partisan study on the subject.

I'm not saying this study is either since I havent looked at it but we all know whether it is or is not won't matter a damn.

My crystal ball has informed me that the next argument to follow the complete debunkingl of "might be second hand dangerous" will be "They could be getting high on ANYTHING with that thing - I bet they got some of that THC in there.  Won't someone think of the children???!?!??"

This.  I can't stand to be around someone smoking, or even someone who's just finished smoking.  E-cigs are no problem at all for me.

I was on e-cigs for about 6 months. It was great until my psoriasis started getting out of hand. No other changes except the e-cigs and quitting the real thing. I tried both 100% PG and 100% VG. So now I'm back on the real thing and my psoriasis is going back to normal. I am going to quit cold-turkey in a month or two.
 
2013-08-25 07:17:32 PM
It really is a good study and shatters a lot of the misinformation that nicotine prohibitionists have been spreading for the last few years.  People fail to realize that, when you take away cigarette smoke from nicotine use, it really removes 99% of the risk of disease from nicotine or tobacco use.

For me, it was never about nicotine when smoking, it was about smoking.  I enjoyed it even though I knew it was slowly killing me.  E-cigs gave me the ability to still enjoy the act without killing myself or endangering those around me.

Maybe extract the pure nicotine and smoke that on its own using a freebase pipe. Looks kinda suspicious though.

It's a good thing that ecigs are easy to palm and don't have to have any appreciable smell, then.

It isn't. Whether this study is valid or not, the fact that the ACSH is promoting it will undermine its credibility... or, more precisely, help undermine its credibility among the sorts of people who are looking for an excuse to ban e-cigs.

Yep. And you can eliminate the vapor clouds with a little practice. I vape on every flight I take and nobody knows but me.

I want to ban the e-cigs because I hate other people having fun while severely reducing (not eliminating) the risk of lung cancer. The old ways are better!

Not sure what they were using, but I've been in indoor situations where e-cigs in close proximity both smelled weird (not bad, mind you, but distracting) and after a while, would begin to sting my eyes.

Perhaps there are brands that are indeed completely inoffensive.

Kind of the same here.

I went from smoking two packs a day to smoking two packs a week the second I picked up some ego twists, tanks and other gadgets and do-dads.

The initial start up cost has already been covered by not buying cigarettes as often.

Oddly, it is not limited to one ideology. Conservatives get the biggest hard on over legislating morality, and liberals get the biggest hard on trying to protect people. Libertarians get he biggest hard on 'trying to prevent people' from 'interfering' - which is just another way of staying in control themselves.

If you want to stop smoking, the e-lungcookie will help. I dropped a very unstoppable smoking habit 6 months ago by switching to the e-lungcookie. With my new found energy, I washed down all the walls in my house, re-washed all my clothes, cleaned the carpets, changed the drapes and haven't bought a pack of smokes since. I also took up the nasty habit of running stairs every morning. I smoked at least a pack a day for 20 years. My doctor told me vaporizing isn't the same as smoking, and my blood pressure is happy for the change.

That's probably the remaining nicotine in the vapor that's stinging you.  I tested my ecig vapor on my arm one day, just exhaling on my skin until it started to condense.  It was like applying a nicotine patch the way it started to sting.  Since then I never vape in the same room as my kid.

Well, looks like e-cigarettes are no problem for avid non-smokers like me. I withdraw on my complaints previous about them being used in enclosed rooms.

Now, how do we convince ALL smokers to switch? I know all that crap about personal responsibility. But tobacco kills. Some people just don't take personal responsibility like washing hands after taking a poo.

Interesting.  I've had some skin issues, but I have for a long time and attributed any worsening to just getting older.  Maybe I'll try backing off of the e-cig a bit to see if anything changes (but I can't go back to regular cigarettes).

This is weird because on every e-cig forum I went to, people were talking about how great it has been for their psoriasis. I've not seen any other mention of this happening except for me. Makes me wonder if those e-cig forums might not be a little too heavily moderated.

And here I thought I was just kind of navel gazing with my comment. I don't know what caused my psoriasis to flare up, it could have been stress, or leaky cartridge stains soaking into my skin from my front shirt pocket, or an undigested bit of beef, a blot of mustard, a crumb of cheese, a fragment of underdone potato, or any number of odd things, but I've seen real improvement since putting the e-cigs away.

No negative health issues.  Proven to be one of the most effective ways to quit smoking.  No stinky tobacco odor.  No second hand smoke issues.   A variety of flavors to choose from.

So why is the state of California classifying them the same as cigarettes with the exact same prohibitions on where you can use them?  If this stupid law passes, I'm not sure I can continue to use my e-cigarette in my own apartment since it is a smoke free building.

I have no problem with e-cigarettes, but I wouldn't go so far as to call this 'a complete debunking zomg!' This is one guy doing a literature review and stating that the contents theoretically should not be dangerous. Scientific fact is rarely settled by one guy's theories and requires consensus, experiment, etc. I'd like to see some controlled trials, some longitudinal study to call this completely debunked. If e-cigs are a safe way for people to get their nic fix then I'm all for it.

I smoked for 20 years and have switched to the vaporizers. I feel healthier and I'm saving money.

Of course, the big tobacco companies want to jump on this bandwagon, and they are selling overpriced shiatty ones. They really can't compete with the internet, so they've lined the pockets of the FDA and in October, the regulations will be proposed. The big one is an online ban of e-cigs. We'll be forced to buy the $5 disposable ones from the gas stations because the little guys can't lobby the FDA effectively.

Tomorrow, the e-cig makers are going to be briefed by the FDA. Everything is about to go to shiat because of the big tobacco companies would prefer government regulators to destroy their competition instead of competing in the free marketplace.

I just got the Protank 2. Just like the one you posted, but you can actually take it apart. I dropped my Protank 1 and it shattered the glass. Now I should be able to replace the glass, assuming I can still buy the damn things in the coming months (see my last post).

Oo, good, second opinion. A buddy from work is wants to sell me his ProVari, what's your thoughts on it? I have a V2, but it doesn't get the vapor warm enough for me and the flavors aren't that great. Thinking going to the variable voltage route will help with that, plus using my own tanks will let me try pretty much any flavor eLiquid I can get. I'm trying to find something that mimics Marlboro Menthol flavor as closely as possible.

If I posted everything I used, the Fark comments server would shut down under stress. :p  My main device is a Provari, and on top of that I use everything from Kangers to Vivi Novas all the way to rebuildable tanks and dripping atties.

Not only does it taste better than a real cigarette (once you get your taste buds back after 2 decades of smoking), I can climb a flight of stairs without getting winded.  Win-win, if you ask me.

Oo, good, second opinion. A buddy from work is wants to sell me his ProVari, what's your thoughts on it? I have a V2, but it doesn't get the vapor warm enough for me and the flavors aren't that great. Thinking going to the variable voltage route will help with that, plus using my own tanks will let me try pretty much any flavor eLiquid I can get. I'm trying to find something that mimics Marlboro Menthol flavor as closely as possible.


It's definitely a solid device.  I've had mine since they launched it 2 years or so ago, still going strong.

As a smoker for over 20 years, I quite smoking and switched to Vaping with an eGo with a  Kangertech tank back on 5/10/13 after a BAD bout of bronchitis, and haven't gone back. I feel better, don't stink, and spend a heck of a lot less money of vapor supplies than I ever did on smokes. One thing I have noticed is I no longer even WANT a cigarette. When I go by people smoking them, they no longer smell good. I have managed to move down to half the nicotine of the cigarettes I used to smoke and plan on moving lower as time goes on. I have been staying away from the tobacco flavored vapor fluid so i don't get back to wanting that taste. One trick is get one of the batteries that are variable voltage, I normally keep mine low. Here is hoping I can keep it up :D
