Vapers Claiming Side Effects Of ECigs – Despite VEHEMENT Efforts Of Stunned Experts!

succeed25a

With any “treatment” to stop smoking, there seems to be side effects.

E-Cigarette users are clearly explaining below what effects they are experiencing with their use of this product.

The question is VERY clear to the participant .

With the question comes an answer.


:

Did you notice any NEGATIVE health or side effects once you were off tobacco using an e-cigarette?

Some reported more of this in their system.


There are some very clear and candid answers below.

These responses are unedited from around the world.


25a

  • There was a period with lots of coughing, and my gums where hurting. Turns out I had a lot of flim in my lungs, and my teeth and gums where reacting to increased bloodflow. Made me sceptical for a second, but got over it. NO REGRETS!

  • If anything I found my an increase in health. My breathing has increased with less coughing, my sense of smell had returned and I can smell things I never thought I could, and my sense if taste has come back so things taste way stronger (sugars and things are more sweet or tart)


  • I am purging toxins from smoking tobacco for 29 yrs. I did not experience withdrawals upon Vaping, quitting Tobacco the same day. In the first week of Vaping I know I lost 2-3lbs, this not expected. All is a process of recovery, and for the first time in my life, I am winning. I will not touch another Tobacco cig, the thought of smoking a cig makes me want to vomit.


  • The only negative effects were those associated with quitting smoking, coughing and expelling whatever had accumulated in my lungs over years of tobacco use.


  • In fact I have been getting a biannual medical for the last 18 years, my lung function was slowly but surely declining until I started ecigs, my first medical was after a year and three quarters of vaping and my lung function is fully restored and thats official.


  • Quitting smoking made my gums inflame and bleed, hidden gum infection was able to come forward with the returning blood flow after quitting. First 4 days i had bad withrawl even with extra strong nicotine levels, that made me doubt the nicotine as the addictive ingredient in a tobacco cigarette.


  • When I smoked tobacco I used to get out of breath with moderate excercise. When is started e-cigs I coughed frequently in the beginning, I think this was my body getting rid of the tar from tobacco in my lungs. The coughing stopped after a few months.


  • Infact, 6 months AFTER I started vaping (25 years after I started smoking), I was required to undertake a medical by my then employer, one of the tests was a lung capacity test, I scored well above average for a 42 year old man that had smoked for 25 years, actually, I scored as high as an 18 year old non-smoker, I think that pretty much proved the validity of vaping to me.


  • There were multiple positive, and some unanticipated, health effects of not smoking. Some temporary negative health effects of stopping smoking but mainly due to the fact that there are so little information of what happens when you stop smoking.


  • Only side effects associated with quitting cigarettes and ridding my body of 38 years of smoking. Once my body purged all that poison I only saw improvements. I am now able to walk 10 miles/day without being out of breath. No longer need an inhalant for asthma, and being able to walk helped in a variety of other health issues, so plusses all around


  • Heavy cough in the first 2 weeks, as the lung were “cleaning” themselves. Did also experience what is called “vapor fatigue, or vapor tongue”. someday taste just decided to stop. All flavors were completely muted. I freaked out a bit, went to a forum then again, community helped. Guy explaining what was happening. Followed the advices, taste was back in 2 days.


  • My feet & knees ache sometimes after taking up running. If I was still smoking I’d never be able to run 5 miles every other day. *snark*


  • My heart pains, shotness of breath and overall health seemed to improve dramatically. I had a time I could barely walk a few blocks without being winded .. now I walk my dog for an hour or two with zero issue.


  • MY HEALTH CAME BACK. I CAN BREATH AGAIN FINALLY AFTER STOPPING CIGGARETTES. EVEN ON AN ECIG i CAN BREATH PERFECTLY FINE AND MY DOCTOR THINKS I DONT USE ANYTHING DUE TO MY HEALTH.


  • I feel completely better, no coughing , don’t smell, more willing to get up and do things, like exercise, so many advantages from vaping compared to smoking. It’s a no brainer but the government don’t want us to vape cause they are loosing money, they want us to smoke, for there tax on tobacco. All this gateway stuff is rubbish, just trying to get vaping banned, don’t get me started. It’s a conspiracy by the powers that be to make stuff up about vaping, they don’t want people in authority saying it’s safe to vape.

  • Actually quite the reverse. Didn’t think because I dipped that I wouldn’t have or wouldn’t notice any differences after I quit dipping. I did though notice my taste and smell are much better now than when I was dipping. Haven’t smoked in a long time its been 5 years since I stopped smoking cigars, 20 years since I quit cigarettes. Just figured cause I dipped there wouldn’t be any changes, oh but there were.


  • I still have a bad ‘smokers cough’ from years of smoking damage. I now cough up a clear mucas in the mornings. It is unclear if this is Glycerine etc from Vaping, or mucas from an overproduction of mucus from lung damage/COPD


  • The tar leaving my lungs finally in phlegm form as a result of healing is not an issue to me.


  • The first 2 weeks, I started coughing quite a lot, and my gums started bleeding when brushing my teeth. Found out that was common when you quit smoking. Dry skin, dry throat, pimples appearing (despite my age). All negative side effects have vanished within 2-3 weeks.


  • My general health has improved massively, I get very few cold viruses now. I cycle to work and back every day. I have lost weight, It has been one of the most positive things I have ever done health wise.

PG Allergy & Sensitivities: Diagnosis and Solution!

 


WHERE are the dangerous side effects the experts claim? The propaganda and misinformation efforts worldwide is ASTOUNDING from people and organizations who are AGAINST tobacco. I’ll type that again. The people below are against smoking. Tobacco.

You’d think the expert would be correct, done research and giving the BEST advice for anything they’re claiming expertise IN.

I digress. They’re not experts. Vapers are. WE who USE these devices KNOW what we experience.

Before we journey into the abyss of misinformation by these “experts” in health, medicine, tobacco control and idiocy in “journalism”…

let me explain the

FEDERAL POLICY on RESEARCH MISCONDUCT.

With a photo.

In the United States, there’s this:

But wait a minute, Kevin! If they’re against tobacco, wouldn’t they be FOR e-cigarettes? That would be insane!


Well, my fair weathered friend, let me assure you

“I am not just another pretty face”.

By U.S. standards,

I say they ARE breaking the law.

The R.I.C.O. Act, for example.

Lawmaker says anti-tobacco agency may be breaking law by opposing vaping


Lets start off with JUST a FEW examples of what is considered at least irresponsibility with misinformation by people who “should” KNOW BETTER, and by my standards, breaking the law, shall we? I’ll call them “Defendants”.

The insidious claims still being circulated around the world by “experts” are just that.

Claims.

VapeMeStoopid has a running and STUNNING

Well, do they want citizens uninformed to keep smoking?

Why would they do that? Revenue.

ARE There Side Effects To ECIGS & VAPING? Plenty, According To Experts.

02

According to some experts who are in the medical, health and research field, they are in fact, all experts.

Warnings, knowledge, time involved to do research. Speaking with other experts. Checking data. Being sure of themselves before presenting their case to the public like any professional expert would. After all, their very reputation is on the line and a very big audience is waiting to be swayed.

They’re experts about talking about ecigs. They warn, advise, completely know what it is they’re speaking of with the confidence of knowing everything there is to know, on top of their expertise in their chosen field and now, on top of all they know? They are experts on vaping…

Plenty of experts. Some actually have earned their degrees. Titles, books, shows, appearances. Fancy smanchy…  nice ties & pretty dresses…

In the news, reporters are now experts. Doctors who are on T.V. and all over the news are telling of their expertise.

Take 2.3 minutes of their busy schedule to school you on “dangers”, “news at 11”, claim what studies they heard about, they presume the information is right, and then claim there really isn’t enough research…. they need long term studies…

In your workplace, your co-workers are experts. There are a pot-load ton of experts.

My cat, in fact, has decided to become an expert.

To my confusion, and conclusion… they have no proof. There’s talk of danger, there’s talk of needing more studies. There’s talk of more time.


The side effects from vaping? Everyone has become an expert.

Here below, unedited, are the true experts with their experiences from those people who VAPE said about their “side effects” from vaping from the survey:



• Cough is gone & I don’t stink like smoke

• White gunk on my tongue is gone!

• Coughing completely gone (didn’t suffer from COPD though … yet)

• Headache, sleeping disorders, stress are gone.

• Asthma gone!!

• sleeping better, daily cough is gone, have been more active and thus lost weight

• Sinusitis is gone!

• i had cough and heart pain sometimes since i vape its gone.

• In 6 months I will be having more tests done and we shall see if there is improvement.These tests will be done as I will

• Arm pain is gone. Loss of feeling in arms is gone.

• My sense of smell is better. People no longer complain about me smelling like smoke. My smoker’s cough is gone.

• I was diagnosed with asthma after smoking for 30 years. I attempted yet again to stop smoking using all of the approved
NRT methods and again failed miserably. 6 months after my last cigarette, my doctor confirmed that my asthma is gone.
No more inhalers, and I can climb mountains again.

• Since I started vaping my periodontal disease symptoms (sore, bleeding, infected gums) are ALL gone! I know this
disease cannot be cured but now it is controlled.

• That annoying “smoker’s cough” is gone. I am no longer purging excess phlegm throughout the day.

• My bad smokers cough has all but gone, and I don’t get out of breath as quickly whe I’m much more active. My dentist says my teeth are cleaner. My doctors says my lungs are clearing up. My sense of smell and taste are off the charts. I no longer have burnt holes in my clothes, car, or bed.n exercising

• Not one bronchitis infection or bronchial asthma attack since vaping. My asthma is more under control. My cholesterol has dropped to a level my doctor is very pleased with.

• My allergies improved, the slight smoker’s cough I had is gone, and my overall health has improved noticeably. I simple
feel better.

• I breath better and the morning coughing jags are gone.

• My doctor has written in my papers ” non smoker ” . But notice : In some countries ( for example in germany ), health insurance and insurance companies listing vapers as “smokers” with all its attendant disadvantages 🙁

• I’m now listed as a nonsmoker on my medical chart and my doctor has noticed that my blood sugars (diabetic) are more even and controllable, my blood pressure is well within the normal range, and I’ve lost 15 stubborn pounds

• Doctor says my lungs are night and day cleaner than they were back in 2010. (Before I started vaping.)

• When I smoked I had heavy smokers cough, sometimes so strong that I could hardly breathe.The smoker’s cough is completely gone. Since I vapors can I smell better. A week after I smelled immediately if a smoker was near the bus, or passing me left. I started on 27 March with 11mg nicotine, now I have reduced to 3 mg nicotine.

• my doctors did asthma tests with me, my lungs increased in capacity by 30% in 11 months, my lung xrays show no signs of smoking, and my blood saturation with oxygen is 98. best i ever had.

• I don’t get bronchitis twice a year any more.

• don’t cough anymore

• My sense of taste is better and I don’t hack up brown stuff anymore. Plus the fact my clothes and car don’t stink!
• My cough disappeared, my heart no longer pounds when I excersize, I can smell and taste so much better, and I don’t
stink!

• I was hospitalized for double pneumonia and doctor said he saw no detrimental effect to vaping and that perhaps the moisture would in fact be good for breaking up my lungs. And some insurance companies are now considering vaping to not he considered as a smoker which lowers insurance premiums

• Cardiac and family doctors both say I’m better.

• Both medical doctor & DDS are thrilled I’m vaping.

• doctor just said : “Good !” with a big smile.

• 3 doctors are thrilled and have me down as a former smoker.

• After 27 years as a smoker you notice things like easier breathing it’s a marked difference. I also suffer with Crohns disease and have noticed a marked improvement with that too which my doctor tells me is linked to my stopping smoking.

• Also: My teethridge is much better and problems with sweaty feet are gone.

• So far so good and my doctor agrees.

• – smoker’s cough stopped after two weeks of vaping
skin looks healthier
stamina is way up without more exercise
had difficulty walking long distances, they are gone
COPD has vanished from the list of chronic diseases my doctor is treating me for
taste is back
sense of smell is back
can lie down without my nose clogging up instantly



Are these claims to be dismissed as anecdotal?  Those people above and their experiences don’t COUNT? Doesn’t what they SAY make a difference?

Is there a bet on who can be the best at misinformation between public health, the medical field, journalists, tobacco control (of ALL people) and others jumping on the bandwagon?

The claims above are JUST as admissible as evidence. No one in their reports show this, and turn their backs on it. “Need more time” and “not enough studies to confirm” at the end of their reports….is becoming unacceptable.

In order to do research, shouldn’t you do the questioning of those with the actual experience in real numbers?



Here’s some fun for you… some of what lengths IDIOTIC “professionals” will go to:

Some are Doctors, Nutritionists, Dentists, even here, specifically, Roger Bezanis with NO title or Dr. after his name –  no formal education to my knowledge, now claims to be an expert and has joined in on how much he knows about ecigs:

bezanis

Seems silly, doesn’t it? Roger, you’re making a fool of yourself.

You showed much worse, including the misleading photos on your twitter feed.

You can see his feed yourself: (Rogers Twitter Feed) and like above, made irresponsible claims you know nothing about.

(He blocks you like ALL those who don’t want to see truth or valid studies.)

You didn’t even show any research, you just started spouting off like a madman…  and there’s something wrong with you.

You’ve hit yourself in the head with too many frying pans.

Like others, you cannot speak responsibly, so please find a medication that works for you.

If you’d like to discuss any questions with him or his findings, he’s on twitter: @RogerBezanis



The two things I say are this.

First, ecigs need more studies and they’re coming. We need studies that are truthful, and not misconstrued by idiots or professionals wanting their 3.4 minutes on national TV. You’re potentially costing lives with your slick knowledge of nothing.

Second. More time. ABSOLUTELY. Time to know possible long term effects.Tick. Tock.

Every day goes by, no ill effects. I am not afraid.

Don’t you think people who vape WANT any truthful bad info? You’re damn right we do! Until then, we’re vaping. It is safe.

Would you rather have us smoke? If you would, PLEASE tell me I may as well smoke… I always look forward to that.

Here’s the thing, if they’ve been around over 10 years, wouldn’t you think by now we’d all be growing mold or a 2nd nose out of our ears if they were detrimental?

Ecigs and vaping is not smoking and is CONSIDERABLY LESS harmful than smoking cigarettes.



Act like professionals. Focus on that. Be responsible with your titles. Stop being afraid of what your colleagues think.

Stand up and speak out.

Make a difference. You may just save someones life.



 If you are a true professional, and want to help the world, please join this organization called M.O.V.E. if you already agree, or find out what those professionals have to say.

If you do that, and you don’t agree its SAFE in comparison to smoking, then denounce your membership, and continue on your crusade, but you need to have research in your hand that you can point to, proving the same or more danger exists because I’ll be watching for every report.

This has long been an age of open information. It seems plain old normal people with no degree can find truth quicker than people with earned degrees and status…the studies and lies come out, and SOMEONE will see the truth behind the lies it may tell…

You see, I’m just a guy who has a day job. No degree, no title… but vapers ARE Nurses, Scientists, Doctors, Dentists… health and former health professionals… and they know the benefits as compared to smoking… and they’re in groups, forums, twitter, facebook…..

Amazingly, if you’ve been under a rock, there is a ton of research:

Click here for a ton of research

There are outstanding informational PDF’s such as this one below with a TON of impeccable and indisputable information by Medical Professional Kellie Forbes BScN RN, found here:

Vaping-the-truth-USA

Print that out, take it to your Doctor.

Make them give you five minutes to discuss that.

If they can’t see the worth in it, switch Doctors. You may just save your own life.



Here’s another one to take very seriously once you learn who Mr. Bates is and his background:

from Clive Bates:
Briefing on the science and policy of e-cigarettes and vaping:

http://www.clivebates.com/documents/vapebriefing.pdf


If you smoke, smoke. I did forever and cannot judge.

If you do both, awesome. If you’ve found vaping is better?

Great.

If you’re undecided, PLEASE know there’s a choice, and they’re trying to take that away and already have in some parts of “civilized worlds”……



We’re so serious about vaping, we’re creating our own surveys. We’re not waiting for experts.



A GREAT  Nicotine & Flavor survey was just completed by @vapedupgaming. His results are powerful and here:

Nicotine/Flavor Survey Results



Final Analysis from my Vaping Truth Survey

I started out on this to change the world, turns out the world is changing me.

Keep On #Vaping On.
