Twenty One – What if we limit adulting to just one age?
She’s a vaping ex-smoker who fights for what is right. Some (including me) call her a #CrankyOldBroad.
FDA Working Double Shifts
To say I’ve met my match in wit with this lady… is an understatement.
Pfizer’s quit-smoking Chantix fails study in adolescent smokers
“Think of the children™.”
I don’t know how pissed off I am after seeing this article. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again. “If “children” are *already smoking, they’re *smokers regardless of age.”
Evidently. If anyone has the actual study… I’d like to read it and have someone explain it to me properly.
This is the “pisses me off” part of the news, part II.
If you’re not on Twitter, I suggest you join. Below is just an excerpt of Marita Hefler explaing she has “qualitative” expertise in response to Jenni Biebert. The obvious part about being qualitative is the disregard for consumers throughout the thread, despite the response below.
She talks TO smokers (not with them, I assume) and for the record believes e-cigs “have a limited role” in reducing smoking in Australia. The louder the scream test, the more she – and those like her – expose their true mission.
I’m a qualitative researcher, I talk to smokers all the time. This about the tobacco industry pushing their own agenda.

Speaking of missions, here’s that ball squeezing study Colin was tweeting about:
Prevalence of current cigarette smoking among adults
US adult smoking rates are below 15% for the first time *ever* in history at 14.1%
You’re smart people…. (you’re welcome.)
Think about it…….. smoking rates are the lowest in history.
Don’t worry yourselves about “transparency” by the government(s) with *wink* science.
There would NEVER be *wink* a black market for cigarettes.
Meanwhile, Dr. Gottlieb, with growing support of political “health” front groups – are working feverishly to *encourage* “lower nicotine” cigarettes… while trying to all but decimate e-cigarettes into oblivion.

From Chris Price:
FDA Is About to Crack Down on Non-Compliant Vapes
You’ve been warned:
Not only have you been warned, you’ll pay for it.
Looking back, but forwards too – guest posting by Louise Ross
In the UK, where trying to convince people became enthusiastic truth… without wagging fingers…. A much-admired woman I consider one of the pioneers… of helping people… in the midst of a hostile tobacco control environment.
Louise’s contributions impacted this:

From the American Council on Science and Health.
I know. Hard to believe, but here it is.
Ending Global Confusion
I’ll need about eight minutes more of your time.
Some of us, over the years, have met each other, helped each other, counseled one another. We are a community that impact each other on a grand scale. Within a community, we fight (sometimes within, often for each other). Within that global community, on occasion there are losses of what we consider casual relationships online right down to knowing people as friends – well beyond a tweet or facebook exchange, treat each other as family.
Personally, I am reminded of finally meeting Ann at the premiere of A Billion Lives in 2016. We lost her last year. She was one who impacted so many behind the scenes as she did online. Karen Lee a.k.a Fiamma Palermo from 2015 who used the #ImProof hashtag, Alice Dalton of the Vape Help & Vape Safe Facebook group who was always cheerful and helpful to everyone.
Another via James in Ohio this week was Keith Ross, Sr.
I ask you to think about their contributions… and YOUR contribution to what has changed your life. Start a blog, tweet, join groups, make some NOISE. Imagine the impact you can have on others and the future with this fight. Often I am inspired by others just from a statement in a group or a tweet. Learn from each other. Stop asking what can you do – start doing.
