@Jerm_Leather
You are not the only one. I think this Info chart advertisement is highly dubious too.

One of the points they make (tests say tobacco is bad and there are currently no proven risks) is the give-away here.
Tobacco wasn't considered dangerous in the early days. Now, after years of tests and lawsuits it is recognized as the poison it is.
E-cigarettes haven't been under the scrutiny that tobacco has been.

Just because there isn't a test something is bad makes it safe product.

Two things, number one we all just read a freaking Advertisement for E-cigarettes. Seriously. How am I the only person to see this? Secondly, if a person wants to stop being addicted to something giving up the addictive element will work wonders! After smoking for 17 years I quit Colt Turkey. No nicotine patch, no nicotine gum, no nicotine whatsoever. Continuing to do nicotine won't help you kick your addiction. Smokers are addicted to the nicotine, as well as a slight oral fixation. Anyways, no more full page ads on IAB, please.

Suicism, I also have a Vamo in my collection But since I turned it into a hobby I don’t think I have been saving. I kind of been spending a lot of money on hardware

I smoked 2 packs a day for 23 years and didn't want to quit, I was given an electronic cigarette to use while traveling (flights, Hotel room and rental car)I realized once I had nicotine in my system I really didn’t need to smoke, and in the first 24 hours without smoking I got my sense of smell back, I was amazed. So in just 48 hours I completely got rid of cigarettes. I have turned vaping into a hobby and haven’t touched a cigarette in 18 months. I truly believe it saved my life as my energy levels, ease of breathing have dramatically improved plus the snoring, coughing, allergies, etc. all gone

Likewise384, here is an in-depth discussion on the article you linked to; basically they are saying they found les tan .002 particles on an unspecified amount of vapor. It is not only an insignificant amount of particles is practically inadmissible as present in any scientific study, they also used burned cartridges invalidating the study completely, there are some more recent studies that prove Vaping is completely safe.

To be fair sqwrlz, it was
the decidedly 'liberal' state of New York to be the first which elected to outlaw this device outright, with the close-second legislature of California to make a similar attempt - luckily, the bill was "Terminated." By a Republican. So there is a valid partisanship to this controversy. Now that Brown's back in town I'm hoarding e-juice like you covet nuts.

I smoked for 10 years and tried to quit with no success, I gave up on myself and continue to smoke pack a day till my boss introduced me 6 month ago to Vapers, I start to use it and since then I've never curved cigarette. Am vaping with my beloved Proveri right now :) PV defiantly work. If you’re smoker give it a try you'll never regret it.

I quit smoking last year using a nicotine free e-cig. Stopped using the e-cig after a couple months too. I agree that regularly inhaling water vapour could cause a higher propensity to contract a bug, but with a little forethought even that doesn't have to be a big problem. Take a multi-vitamin, avoid cold, damp environments....try quitting in the summer....

Wait, this iconograph confuses me. "The Dark Truth" seemed to indicate that the E-cig is bad, but from the sounds of it, pretty good?

Glad I quit, either way, although this made me want a smoke.

January 3, 2012, I quit smoking, after a 30-year pack-a-day habit. (Started when I was 16)

January 4, 2012, I acquired an e-cigarette.

March 6, 2012, I realized I no longer needed it.

Haven't used nicotine in any form since. I still have the occasional craving (and am fully aware that I will have these occasional cravings for the rest of my life), but I am always able to get past it now.

If it wasn't for the e-cigarette, it wouldn't have happened. For some of us they are a very useful tool in breaking that particular addiction.

THEY WORK.

The only really problem from e-cigarettes comes from the fact that you're actively breathing water vapor into your lungs, which can (not lead to) but may make the chances of getting pneumonia slightly greater.

I smoked for nearly 15 years, I started as a teen, and I've been totally tobacco- and nicotine-free for over 3 years thanks to a $20 e-cigarette kit I bought at the gas station. Haven't looked back. :)

It kills me how an electronic cigarette is under so much scrutiny as bad, which I have no doubt is the tobacco industry is pursuing, Yet pushing Chantix is a supposedly great safe alternative. What a crock of poo. Chantix has a disclaimer that says: "If you think of or attempt suicide, contact your doctor and stop using the product." So if you do attempt suicide or worse are successful you or your surviving loved ones can't sue anyone for their product because of this stupid little disclaimer.

So basically a pill that could possibly cause you to commit suicide is better than using an inhaler containing nicotine. In my opinion, this only shows that the nicotine inhaler is the better alternative.

Here's my beauty I-A-B:



5 years, 20,000 "analogs" avoided - untold thousands of dollars spared. The cost is actually LESS, even for a fancy getup like this. In addition, the 36mg mixture which I originally started-out with has now dropped to 11mg; my body is naturally processing-out the nicotine, since I don't spend 5 minutes puffing on a cancer stick but rather use as needed. Once I get down to 0, they can no longer classify this as a "nicotine-delivery" device; that is the fundamental discrepancy in our detractors' reasoning.

my grandfather started smoking nonfilters when he was a small child, like maybe 7 (not uncommon then) and he lived to nearly 90. sure, he coughed in the morning and had yellow fingers, but he lived long and worked hard physical labor in a foundry most of his adult life. he was never ever hospitalized, NEVER, EVER. no diagnosed cancer, no heart disease, nothing.

i don't really think its the tobacco that kills though, i think its the stuff the tobacco companies add. i've read that growing your own tobacco and making your own cigarettes actually is a lot better for you, if you choose to smoke. and there's the quality control issues which can be addressed at home.

granted, that's not for everyone but a $3 pack of seeds and a little effort might yield a year's worth of smokes. i'm planning to do that in the spring.

Tobacco can start something that may take years to finally express itself. People get lung cancer who have quit...it just takes one mutated cell to do a detriment to yourself.

Tobacco companies are like the oil companies. They have their hands in some very deep pockets. They WANT people to be unhealthy and smoke normal cigarettes.
