I’ll call this the “stop being idiots” link. STOP using trademarks. STOP using anything with cartoons.

Two things:

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…”

Science Lesson: Clinical Trial Evidence Debunks The ‘Vaping Impedes Smoking Cessation’ Claim

“the quality of an answer is highly dependent on the question that is being asked.”

Carl V. Phillips:

Science Lesson: Clinical Trial Evidence Debunks The ‘Vaping Impedes Smoking Cessation’ Claim


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…

CASAA FREE Membership Offered to Vapers


david pinnacle

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:


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.”

California Public Health, Tom Frieden US CDC IGNORE E-Cig Research & FDA


The FDA hasn’t yet made its decision to deem “ecigs” a tobacco product. Evidently, Tom Frieden with the CDC, and the State of California’s Public Health Department don’t seem to care OR have to wait – or check facts from anyone to add them to their uninformed attempt at slick anti-tobacco campaigns.

In fact, it is very evident they didn’t even look for science when it comes to this technology.

With “deeming regulation” still pending over e-cigarettes, chairs are not yet cold from the recent meetings in the USA over the debate of e-cigarettes and their safety. There is quite an interest from around the world as to how safe they actually are- and they are- according to leading experts in research with these two articles as examples:

Now, here’s a golden chance to kick that cigarette butt!

E-cigarettes MUCH Safer Than Normal Smokes

Government officials are now making e-cigs part of the newest campaign for the CDC and California is as well, to convince the public they are just the same as cigarettes when they are clearly not.

This is already causing unnecessary confusion with California’s Public Health campaign, some already calling that a fiasco. These childish tactics from public health only help tobacco companies and reclaiming their tax revenue:

State Health Agency Does Big Tobacco’s Dirty Work on E-Cigarettes

Neither camp say one word on the never ending research and positive effects e-cigarettes have continued to have in combating tobacco, possibly curbing tobacco use 20-50% by the end of this decade, despite what some in public health positions may claim.

But, they are in control, and they’ve got MILLIONS of dollars to play with.

(The FDA is STILL accepting comments here until APRIL 15th, 2015)


Ummmm did you check some valid sources first didn’t you?

You didn’t call “Dr.” Kevin Campbell, did you?

Ugh…. he doesn’t know anything either…

You’re a “Doctor”, right? No staff there to help you with google over there?

I’ll help ANY public official idiot out,

please get your nose closer to the screen:

Go ahead, now, click on it:

Ecigarette Research here,


E-Cigarette Research here with proper studies & papers.

Did you possibly talk with the Fellow Doctors, Scientists & Researchers

at the wonderful M.O.V.E. Organization here?

Have you seen this extensive and powerful research done by Kellie Forbes (BScN RN, a member of the M.O.V.E. organization above) to help others in PDF form: Vaping-the-truth-USA

Have you seen this site yet?

Not Blowing Smoke

Is this decision even legal? Whoops… spent all that money, too late now!

Costing lives!

Good for you. I’m impressed. We all know what damage this can do…

well  – no such thing as bad press….

You’d rather make things up for the public –  to convince and coerce, to alter the masses thought process and bundle the two together like they are the same – but they are NOT.

Wait, I get it… you want people to continue smoking! WOW!

You would rather have parents and grandparents think they are just like cigarettes so they’ll keep on smoking and then, the children they are around will be around it.

Think about those children. Is that a responsible way to act

Cigarettes are approved by the FDA. Aren’t you worried about them?

The e-cigarette, with all the research, is far safer than you can imagine.

(Thanks again Randy)


You’ll dismiss the research above, and pretend e-cigarettes are tobacco.

Why….. I’ll bet you my first born son you’re looking for tax dollars….

I love my first born son, but this is IMPORTANT.

You think you’ve found the pot of gold, recovering  Master Settlement Revenue for all!

Creating false propaganda to pretend to bundle e-cigs with tobacco….Huh…cute!

I get it – Like… ALL Doctors have the public health in mind… kind of like that, right?

Or –  like ALL politicians are honest…. right? Wow… I’m catching on! Wink, wink, Tom!

You are SUCH a CARD!

Here, dear reader, is that pesky MSA deal some of you aren’t old enough to remember:

Revenue is more important than lives.

I found this to be of interest, with the CDC looking for cancer and patients, who smoked AND used an e-cigarette. Well, if they smoked, sadly, wouldn’t that make them predisposed to the disease regardless of trying an e-cigarette?

If I keep typing I’ll just be plagiarizing. It’s TOO good:

This article explains it better than I can from of ALL places

THE American Council on Science & Health:

The CDC in cahoots with the CA “health” dept. ramps up its anti-e-cig propaganda


Hey, Tom… look me up – email me and we’ll exchange numbers so we can chat, would you?

   Maybe you can handle one of my tax issues at hand for me?

We can discuss real issues to tackle – like emphysema, lung cancer my Father & Grandmother both had from smoking all their lives because they didn’t have the choice of an e-cigarette and tried every other “approved” method out there.

The e-cigarette, vaping – is effective, gets people OFF tobacco and is very well researched, but, you, like all the rest want to decide whats best for others without so much as clicking on a website or making a phone call. Did you possibly try to contact Dr. Farsalinos   ??????????

I’ll bet you haven’t. He was in town… should have had coffee in a smoke free, vape free environment – like a Starbucks.

Let’s talk about Chantix… you’re a doctor… are you in favor of Chantix, you know – side effects include suicide? Why didn’t you put that on your rhetoric?

Umm… maybe your career needs a boost, ever considered working with Mr. Glantz out in California? It’s warm there………..

I’ll leave you with this link of my hero, Mr. Gutfeld from Fox and his video: Gutfeld: California Ads Trashing E-Cigs ‘Demonize With Flimsy Lies’
