eSmokers – Breaking the Law or Just Our Patience?

Second-Hand-Vaping-is-Harmless

Goniewicz, PhD, of Roswell Park Cancer Institute, Buffalo, New York, suggested in the Journal of the American Medical Association. They explained the unknowns, weighed the agency’s options and made several recommendations for how to proceed in a Viewpoint published online. First introduced in 2007, e-cigarettes are the latest form of nicotine replacement therapy (NRT). The mechanism of action is a battery-powered device that heats a nicotine solution, creating an inhalable vapor without burning tobacco products or other toxins usually found in cigarettes. Other NRT methods include nicotine patches and nicotine gum, but e-cigarettes have surpassed these methods in popularity as they mimic a real cigarette in appearance and absorption method. E-cigarettes also enable those who want to quit for health reasons to retain smoking culture.

The store in your pic features ~100+ flavors, and none of them smell like toe cheese. Ive had one pungent faux tobacco flavor that smelt savory, but nothing like what you describe. Matt Zukowski And until that changes, we non-smokers will have to tolerate eSmokers exhaling that strange vapor into our food at restaurants, Another misconception. Presuming a real cigarette, at one meters distance, you might be exposed to as much nicotine as in one serving of egg plant.

Trying To Quit? This E-Cigarette Tweets Your Shame

Theyre primarily sold as a device to help smokers quit, but because they dont use tobacco, they arent subject to FDA or state smoking regulations, and can be advertised on television . This fact has led big tobacco companies to start investing in e-cigarettes, which has some anti-smoking groups worried that they may start to use them as gateways to the real thing . Connecting the e-cigarette to Twitter, where it could potentially go viral and reach millions of people, seems like it would be a dream come true for big tobacco companies. But the people at R/GA say they view the tool as more of a tracking device along the lines of the Jawbone wristband, and the tweets the device sends focus, however glibly, on the benefits of quitting, not the novelty of the device itself. I think of using those analytics as a cessation tool for people, rather than promoting smoking, says senior communications associate Martin Maisonpierre.

Are e-cigarettes healthier?

The consumer will also have to buy a replacement tank for $6.99 about once a month, depending on usage. In the end, a one-pack-per-day light cigarette smoker will spend about $25 per month vaporing, compared to about $150 per month smoking. I wanted a way to wean myself off cigarettes, she said, adding that nicotine patches was one option. She decided against patches because e-cigarettes allow her to still inhale and exhale, retaining that oral fixation associated with cigarettes.

eSmokers – Breaking the Law or Just Our Patience?

Second-Hand-Vaping-is-Harmless

Last Friday as I was heading into the Big Apple, I practically fell out of my pleather seat when the guy next to me lit up an electronic cigarette and for the next 10 minutes, sucked on what looked like a giant ball point pen. When he exhaled, a strange vapor blew across my face that smelled like burning toe-cheese. The guy sitting in front of the man smoking his electronic cigarette didnt seem to notice while I was having a sweaty anxiety attack.

Electronic cigarettes could rekindle battles over smoking in public

The solution, or e-juice, and vapor mist, which looks like smoke, typically contain nicotine, but users can regulate the amount. Thats why some vapers say e-cigarettes have helped them quit tobacco and wean themselves off nicotine altogether. Research released in late June by Italys University of Catania lends support to those claims. The study found that 13 percent of participants who used high-dose e-cigarettes quit smoking. Seventy percent of those who quit smoking eventually gave up e-cigarettes, too.

E-cigarette regulation and taxes once again on the front burner at the Capitol

BACKER Rep. Mike Jackson: The Enid Republican has backed a study of the business and health aspects of e-cigarettes. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is considering classifying the devices as tobacco products, a move that could result in a significant tax burden on people using them, he said. If FDA action made the devices subject to the state’s tobacco tax, it could make the e-cigarette equivalent of a pack of cigarettes taxed at $8.50 to $9, Jackson said. “What we don’t want to do is put a higher tax on a less-harmful product,” he said.

And on an airplane, he sneaks a quick puff and blows the vapor down toward the floor — fellow travelers may not even notice. The bustling Vapor Spot attracts 18-year-olds to seniors, but mostly people in their 20s and 30s, Jenkins says. The blue-and-orange-walled store, which opened in 2009, was the first brick-and-mortar vape store in the country, he says. Customers can sit at one of six “bars” with a bartender to try the different flavors of juice. Vapers note that their e-choice is still less harmful than cigarettes, and more pleasant in taste and smell, even if they must go outside to indulge.
