About

I am a consumer. I smoked for 30+ years. I stopped smoking accidentally with vaping. I write from a consumers perspective for consumers, about e-cigarette science, data, organizations, news and more.

My goal, in fact my passion, is to speak blog to as many people as possible to present a fair, balanced opportunity for a consumer to understand safer alternatives to smoking, how and why they work, or don’t. They can then make an informed and educated choice for themselves.

I include survey information, news stories, studies, science and data collected from a variety of sources on different types of “cessation” methods and… blog about them in what has been described by my friends across the pond at Vapers.org.uk:

“His gritty distinctive style is ever-readable”


After almost two years of being smoke-free I was inspired to create and author “The Vaping Truth Survey” in 2014. This garnered over 7,000 participants worldwide from 72 countries.

I also created (with the help of others) the “Nicotine Addiction: An Open 30-Day Public Health Challenge…” and raised money for the team at ecigarette-research.org.

While no one met the criteria, the results of that challenge (and many links) are here.

Besides finding me here on my blog, I am also
Editor, National Council, Member, Board of Directors at THR4Life with four other fantastic people including Kevin Price, Lindsey Stroud, Skip Murray, and Jenny Hoban.

  1. Dear Vaping Links,
    I am contacting you regarding a pro-vape Hip Hop music video I created. My name is Kensho Kuma, an independent artist from the Bay Area, California, and I am intending to spread awareness about vaping through this song. I was hoping that you could consider it for possible blog submission.

    If you don’t deal with music videos, I apologize for the inconvenience.

    Thanks,
    Kensho Kuma

      1. Hello,

        I was looking for information on vaping, and ran across your site, GREAT INFO, I am not sure if you’re still updating articles, but I noticed a lot of the links were dead. Just thought you’d like to know.

        Also I have my own site on vaping, vaporsmall.com which might be of interest to you. Either way keep up the great work.

        Thanks
        Greg

  2. Even one of the top medial authorities in the UK has said he believes Vaping is vastly less harmful than smoking and he has recommended it to be used by people who want to stop smoking… Still the EU want to enforce more strict regulations than there is on smoking… There’s a great blog about smoking Vs vaping at infinityvape.

    1. That study is considered crap by the medical community. It has also never been replicated, which indicates that its a cherry-picked conclusion. Also, the panel contained several members who were accepting payments for e-cigarette companies. How do I know that we are talking about the same study? Because there has only been 1 peer-reviewed study published in the UK which claims vaping is less harmful than smoking. Lancet and BMJ both think its crap, and Lancet published the friggen Wakefield article

      https://www.wits.ac.za/news/latest-news/research-news/2017/2017-07/no-scientific-credibility-to-claim-that-vaping-is-95-safer-than-cigarettes.html

    2. If you need to go to blogs to get information, rather than a research database, dont you think you might be exposing yourself to biased research?

  3. Twitter has LOCKED my account, @TommyVape and the site is inaccessible. I was Tweeting to the FDA, AMA, and several health organization when I noticed at least 30 Tweets had piled up and were not being sent. Twitter management are authoritarian, and totalitarian. I like it, but I’m not in to the management. I’ll be on Reddit, ECF, and Gab.ai.

    1. Gotcha -sad to hear — I did see you had posted “2017, save your life! Vape On!” a few times – but it sounds like twitter had a glitch – not you – then blamed you? I had to verify something around two months in – maybe check back Wednesday to see if they’ve cleared it up!? 🙂

    2. What good do you think tweeting at the FDA will do? Go get an MD, get a license, and do a study. That’s what was done by all these people you are arguing against. You arent even on the same level. And please, dont claim that you are a doctor, I doubt you even have the mental capacity to make that lie believable (judging by the fact that you are supporting this ridiculous idea).

  4. I just stumbled on this site and I thought I might put my “two sense” in. I can safely say that I smoked cigarettes for 40 yrs, then switched to swisher sweet cigars for ten years (price was $3.00 cheaper). So we are talking 50 yrs….of starting,quitting,patches, suicide thoughts from chantix. I started vaping and occasionally smoked for 2 yrs. then just vaped for 1 yr. In the early 2000’s I was introduced to crack cocaine and “they” say giving up crack is the hardest addiction to give up. For me, smoking cigarettes was harder. Chantix was great the best thing they have come up with for cravings for cigarettes if you don’t mind the feeling of wanting to drive your car off a bridge doesn’t bother you. Anyhow, I quit vaping 5 months ago. don’t get me wrong, I still crave, but not like before. Thanks for reading…good luck to all trying to quit.

      1. Hes saying that nicotine is addictive, the opposite of what your website is trying to say. A charlatan who is also an idiot? Who would have thought?

        You are someone that should be in jail, and if it comes to light that you have a financial interest in vaping then you will be going to jail for lying in this way.

        You are clearly not a doctor, you clearly don’t even understand how addiction works. How about some pathophysiology for us who actually understand the human body? How about you give us a link that ACTUALLY WORKS and leads to a peer reviewed study? How about you stop abusing biases and fallacies in order to sway the opinion of vulnerable people? How about you argue with someone to their face instead of mudslinging 30 year old statements?

        I challenge you to argue this topic against me live for all of your followers to see. I will prove to everyone that you are either stupid or lying. Also, I will be searching for a method to report you to a legal or health authority. I hope that you either cease and desist this nonsense or develop cancer (even if your bullshit about nicotine not being addictive was true, it is still carcinogenic).

        Sincerely,
        Someone who isn’t scum

      2. I have discovered a complaint process that will allow me to report your organization to the FTC for investigation. If you have a financial interest in espousing the belief that Nicotine is not addictive, you will likely be going to jail or at least having to pay a massive fine. Lying about the health effects of nicotine is illegal, and you have no reason to believe the things that you are saying are true. Cease and desist or I WILL be reporting you to as many health and trade watchdogs as I possibly can. You are potentially damaging the health of 11,880 people with your lies, and I will not stand by while you do this.

TELL me what YOU think!!!
