I’ll call this the “stop being idiots” link. STOP using trademarks. STOP using anything with cartoons.
1. Anyone using Vuse?
2. The “industry” is policing itself.
Heat Not Burn Products – The New Nicotine Alliance Steps Into The Debate
This isn’t my Father’s generation of choices – or lack thereof.
Whether I “like” the patch, gum, hypnosis, books, drugs, e-cigarettes – including cig-a-likes, snus, heat not burn, nicotine toothpicks, nicotine salts, high powered mods (where are those old ego starter kits) or acupuncture…. really doesn’t matter. Those are, along with tobacco control’s potpouri of guilt, demonizing, (my opinion) hocus pocus, feel good apps, classes, walks, straws (yes straws) and quitlines… many more ways suggested to not smoke (or smoke less) if a consumer decides. WHAT consumers use, how consumers get it, or who it’s made by… still really doesn’t matter.
Just as I’ve seen with kratom and CBD, I don’t use them and know little about them, never thinking I’d be anywhere near talking about those… but dammit… if they WORK…
I type this blog to speak fluently and informatively about those choices FOR the consumer to make educated choices based on their preferences and let them know the average success and failures of any product they may be interested in.
Despite where it comes from, what may work as a choice for a consumer is first. Let us not become them. Let us not fuck that up. (Thanks, Sarah Jakes.)

Vaping’s potential to benefit public health exceeds its risks
“…those benefits represent a small fraction of the enormous harm caused by combustible tobacco…”
Nothing to see here, no manipulation of words here… move along.

LIES, DAMNED LIES, & 400,000 SMOKING-RELATED DEATHS
Over the past few years I’ve heard “STOP repeating the lies of tobacco control” – or to that sentiment. We’ve all heard the “smoking-related” death numbers over the years. We’ve heard the claim “taxes lower deaths”. The latest WHO numbers went from 6 to 7 Million deaths… well, DrMA below has questioned that… (Don’t tell him how much I adore him, he might get a big head.)

I’ve questioned it – on the prompting of DrMA above (He’s such a bad influence)….. wondering with all the taxes going up, how could that number jump from 6 to 7 million….. so I’ve asked…

Meanwhile, Mike – over on Facebook – found this through Michael J. Mcfadden…. it seems I’ll never see “everything”, and as with anything you read… it’s worth the read.
CASAA FREE Membership Offered to Vapers
Because it’s there…
Did I mention I love David? I’ll do that now. Having a front row seat is a pretty good view. David is approachable, kind and brutally honest.
He is for the consumer, vaper, smoker, and he’s far too intelligent and articulate to hold it in… David’s words:
“LAUNCHING E LIQUID LINE, PINNACLE CBD FLAVORED LINE, VAPE RADIO SHOW, PODCAST, ADVOCACY, AND CALL TO ACTIVISM TO HELP SMOKERS WHEN / IF THEY ARE READY TO QUIT SMOKING. MY DESIRE TO HELP EDUCATE AND HELP SAVE LIVES GROWS STRONGER EVERYDAY. TIME TO SEPARATE THE MEN AND THE WOMEN FROM THE BOYS AND THE GIRLS.
David G Signature Series (formerly known as the Winston Man). Thanks for your patience.
I was taught do it right the first time or don’t do it at all. There is no ( I ) in team. I have a great team that believes in me. Wont disappoint.”
