Is There a Role for E-Cigarettes in Smoking Cessation for Patients With Cancer?

I’d like to ask the question: Is there a reason this is a question?

Is There a Role for E-Cigarettes in Smoking Cessation for Patients With Cancer?


The E-Cigarette Debate: What Counts as Evidence?

I’ll quote our friend, the great Alan Beard concerning this next one:

Very fair and detailed analysis here regarding the differing approaches in the US and the UK

Clearly pointed out : “…competing priorities determined what counted as evidence…

The E-Cigarette Debate: What Counts as Evidence?


RCM Supports Vaping

I was glad to see the “Support to Quit Smoking in Pregnancy” report come out. I was gladder to see Dave’s take on it.

Teen vapers are using eBay to dodge age restrictions – And cigarettes, too

Imagine the ability of children™ to illegally obtain things they are not legally allowed to possess purchase. We can’t blame eBay alone, I’m sure there are parents who are unaware of secret groups and sites all over the internet to gain access to illegal things. Illegally.

Teen vapers are using eBay to dodge age restrictions – And cigarettes, too


How Big Is the So-Called Teen Vaping Epidemic?

This isn’t the Surgeon General, certainly it is not the Food and Drug Administration explaining the “epidemic”. Instead, Dr Rodu does. Again.

How Big Is the So-Called Teen Vaping Epidemic?


The American Liars Association

I adore the play on telling the truth with words.

The American Liars Association


Gang Related

While much more troubling issues are in schools, people choose to forget “reefer madness” or choose to ignore it.

Gang Related



If you want to scare parents, think of Elvis. Loretta Lynn. George Carlin. The PMRC. When parents look for an excuse – any scapegoat is acceptable, really, except the children™ . Except the parents. When looking to change perceptions, you arm yourselves with children™ , duck behind them and aim directly toward anyone willing to be shocked and dismayed.

DON’T blame the children™ – and whatever you do, don’t blame the parents. {Insert other smart-ass comments from me here}.


Flavor Bans Are Good for Smoking

When someone stops smoking, food not only tastes better, sense of smell improves. The olfactory nerves from taste to smell are in overdrive within a few days. 

You could take my word for it, or see their examples they themselves ignore:

Flavor Bans Are Good for Smoking

Those in control are power tripping all over themselves trying to ban flavors in vaping products. Once a smoker, you shall never deserve pleasure derived from a less harmful alternative while you’re bullied to quit smoking their way by the same people having you by your short-hairs. Flavor bans are good for smoking.

Do they want less smoking?

Do “they” truly want less smoking, or control? The choice to impose any flavor ban is a choice to protect income derived from smokers (NOT tobacco companies as public health likes to imply) in the form of predicted and lucrative revenue in accordance with the Master Settlement Agreement.

Because officials are not in control, they are desperate to regain control of public opinion – and doing so fraudulently. Obviously vaping products work.

Why would anyone want to ban or tax a less harmful alternative to smoking? Why would you ban adult choice?


What do they know?

When someone stops smoking, food not only tastes better, sense of smell improves. The olfactory nerves from taste to smell are in overdrive within a few days. Senators, for example, are trying to ban flavors, but have enjoyed a “candy desk” since 1965. Really. In fact, surprise, now there are TWO.

With most, if not all examples of “stop smoking” programs comes the fact that taste buds return and will enhance the perception of flavors. That means flavors are pleasurable in the journey of a smoker choosing not to smoke. That means flavor bans are good for smoking.

You could take my word for it, or find examples of

  • “suggesting that the effects of smoking on olfaction may be reversible” here.
  • “The ability of olfactory stimuli to uniquely alter craving states and cognitive processes associated with smoking, and disrupt well-learned smoking routines, would offer a distinct and novel method for reducing cravings” here.
  • “Your damaged taste buds will recover relatively quickly and your ability to relish delicious food will be among the greatest rewards you will get for your efforts in quitting smoking.” here
  • “In two days, the blunted senses of smell and taste begin to sharpen again” here.
  • “Did u know quitting smoking can make food taste & smell better? Yum!” from National Cancer Institute’s (NCI) “SmokeFreeUS” here.
  • “A few days after someone quits smoking, their taste buds kick back in. Celebrate those strong taste buds with some delicious healthy treats!” (Another) found from NCI here.
  • ” Quitting smoking can help improve your sense of taste! Celebrate #NationalWatermelonDay by enjoying a smokefree afternoon & the delicious taste of watermelon.” from the Centers for Disease Control here.

69,233 Former Smokers Show:

Fruit and dessert/pastry/bakery flavors were the most prevalent choices of the adult established, dedicated US e-cigarette users who participated to this study. The same flavors were also considered particularly important in their effort to quit smoking and to prevent relapse to smoking.

That is here, from Dr Farsalinos :

Patterns of flavored e-cigarette use among adults vapers in the United States


Also explained here:

Restricting Access To Flavored E-Cigarettes Should Be The Last Resort


Now comes another document from California:

“However, this doesn’t mean we don’t have plenty of peer-reviewed evidence that they’re invaluable tools. In fact, a new report concluded e-liquid flavors help adult smokers fight the urge to start smoking again far better than tobacco flavored e-liquids do.”

New Research Supports Something We’ve Said About Vaping For Years


Flavor bans are good for smoking.


Irony In Control

Is the number one priority actually reducing smoking rates? Either they want less harm, or they don’t. Either they want less smoking, or they don’t. Smoking rates for teens and adults are the lowest in history. Is that bothering them?

It’s clear “public health” has made their decision. They want to have fewer flavors – but keep “tobacco” flavor. Think about that. That means flavor bans are good for smoking. They want to ban choices that work at any cost.

To pretend banning flavors will not protect cigarette revenues means you live in a fantasy world. You can ponder that statement at one of over 30,000 Starbucks – while enjoying one or more of your 80,000 available flavors.

“Morals are standards set by those who want their standards met by others.”

After all, smokers, and former smokers do not deserve motivation or pleasure – only defeat, disapproval, and shame. How’s that feel?

The public officials (all) bleating they want less smoking is irony in control. They are still asserting their “authority” while trying to hold what little control they have left.

Less smoking, after all, really isn’t their goal. Quietly mentioning lowering nicotine on occasion, burying within press releases, without much fanfare, they are INVESTING over 100 Million Dollars for more cigarettes….. Flavor bans are good for smoking.

At the risk of sounding sound redundant, repetitive and repeating myself: Do they want less smoking? Those in control are power tripping all over themselves trying to ban flavors.

ASK THEM WHY they want to ban less smoking.



They are desperate.

Even Truth Initiative admits:

“Good public health policy must recognize this continuum and leverage this knowledge to move continuing smokers, as rapidly as possible, toward less harmful nicotine delivery products while simultaneously preventing the adoption of all nicotine containing or tobacco products among youth.“

The Truth Manipulative

Dave shows more lies:

Vaping In The News covers nicotine, smoking, vaping, snus, heat not burn, e-cigarettes, harm reduction, tobacco control, public health, government, regulations, policies & more worldwide.


Do the properties of cinnamon change when it is present in e-cigarette liquids? ~ Busting myths about smoking ~ E-cigarette minimum legal sale age laws and traditional cigarette use among rural pregnant teenagers ~ Great news for tobacco farmers! ~ FDA Admits No Causality Between Vaping And Seizures ~ Tobacco stocks tumble as cigarette sales decline ~ While The World Vapes Our Government Chokes ~ Educating OUR Children ~ Vaping products and gang activity ~ Rats, low voltage and their testicles ~ Truth Manipulative


Do the properties of cinnamon change when it is present in e-cigarette liquids?

Dr Farsalinos explained in 2015 – it’s important as a reminder of “cell studies” and what they’re worth: “Don’t waste your time reading (at least most of) them” here.

Now, again… someone’s got some ‘splaining to do.

“Thus, cinnamaldehyde in the cinnamon-flavored liquids was not different from cinnamaldehyde present in food. In fact, if the observed effects are attributed to cinnamaldehyde, then cinnamaldehyde in food products must be equally toxic to endothelial cells.”

“which were not vaped, they were used in liquid form”

Do the properties of cinnamon change when it is present in e-cigarette liquids?


Busting myths about smoking

Again, Dr. Konstantinos Farsalinos explains.

Busting myths about smoking


E-cigarette minimum legal sale age laws and traditional cigarette use among rural pregnant teenagers

A pre-release sneak peek at a slight increase in smoking among pregnant teens. At what age are pregnant teens considered adults?

At what AGE is a smoker considered a smoker?

E-cigarette minimum legal sale age laws and traditional cigarette use among rural pregnant teenagers


Great news for tobacco farmers!

“Think of the children™.”

Will jet fumes be considered smoke?

Will planes be deemed tobacco products by the FDA?

I can think of about a few one liners / possible memes for this one…

Think about the tobacco farmers, the economy…


FDA Admits No Causality Between Vaping And Seizures

Huh.

FDA Admits No Causality Between Vaping And Seizures


We now have results for key laws advocates promised would ‘protect’ teenagers. They don’t.

The authors of #T21 #Tobacco21 laws & legislation already KNOW THIS.

“2017, the first full year the 21 smoking age was in effect, was the first since the survey began 15 years ago that teenagers’ cigarette use failed to decline.”

Think of the children™.

We now have results for key laws advocates promised would ‘protect’ teenagers. They don’t.

Tobacco stocks tumble as cigarette sales decline

I wonder what’s causing this… perplexing!

Tobacco stocks tumble as cigarette sales decline


While The World Vapes Our Government Chokes

“The doctor had the results but was perplexed. I can understand why. My lung capacity should have been a lot less than 41% in fact, it had increased dramatically to an amazing 82%.”

WHILE THE WORLD VAPES OUR GOVERNMENT CHOKES



Educating OUR Children

This is Logan. Be like Logan.

Vaping products and gang activity

NOW vaping products are linked to gang activity. Yep, I’ve found many non-profits linked to that. Lock your doors!!!

Fine, that isn’t what the “study” title is.

UTSA study shows vaping is linked to adolescents’ propensity for crime

For reference I covered nicotine busts here.


Rats, low voltage, and…

So, when you’re choosing funding to make life better…

Well, fine, you caught me not telling you what the study is, but, either way, my poor little pal, Vlad.

Impairment of testicular function in electronic cigarette (e-cig, e-cigs) exposed rats under low-voltage and nicotine-free conditions.


Truth Manipulative

I have a question for all of you. Would you like your truth filtered, or nonfiltered? Soft pack or box?

I took the “Truth” to task after seeing one thing, and then the other.

It must’ve sounded so good on paper, they changed their minds.

Manipulation of the Truth

Last evening I recognized Manipulation of the Truth. While all in the wording, the Truth Manipulative ® is strong. Everything is not as truthful as it appears, and should make you skeptical at best to the information allowed to be filtered to the public by the end of this blog.

It may surprise you, this isn’t just about vaping products. It’s about choice, and population level harm reduction. It’s as if they’ve taken everything (we’ve) known and packaged it into one PDF. Then, they deleted it, repackaged it and manipulated the truth.

Among other things quoted below, the organization and original PDF recognizes and mentions Nicotine Without Smoke from “Royal College of Physicians (RCP) (Royal College of Physicians, 2016).


This report recognizes and mentions smokeless tobacco and snus..

“The best evidence comes from cohort studies in Sweden, where a low-nitrosamine snus product has been heavily used for more than 50 years.”

It goes further:

This is particularly reassuring because if nicotine promoted cancer generally, these studies would have identified oral cavity cancer risk“.

I’ll call this the unfiltered version. Final draft, if you will. While I wouldn’t call it ‘perfect’, (there are general statements I disagree with), it highlights the importance of reducing harm from combustible tobacco. Imagine if they took that path.


Why would Truth Initiative remove an original PDF from consumer view?


This PDF asks:

“What policies and regulations can ensure that harm from nicotine use are minimized while simultaneously moving the entire population away from deadly combustible tobacco products?

This PDF admits:

While animal models suggest possible concerns for humans, more research is required to demonstrate if, and at what dosage and duration of exposure, nicotine might have possible adverse effects during adolescent and young adult brain development.”

This PDF explains:

There are large differences in the response and degree of dependence to nicotine within a population. At the two extremes, some may find nicotine has little effect or may even be aversive, while others find it very appealing and become heavily dependent


What are they trying to hide?


It also recognizes:

“…options to improve consumer-informed decision making by ensuring that accurate information is available …

It states:

The evidence available so far suggests that levels of biomarkers of exposure to toxicants related to use of these devices is significantly lower than for smoked cigarettes.

It KNOWS:

“Good public health policy must recognize this continuum and leverage this knowledge to move continuing smokers, as rapidly as possible, toward less harmful nicotine delivery products while simultaneously preventing the adoption of all nicotine containing or tobacco products among youth.


Amazingly, the title of this PDF is “Re-thinking nicotine and its effects“. It is authored by Raymond Niaura, PhD, Director of Science and Training, The Steven A. Schroeder National Institute for Tobacco Research and Policy Studies at Truth Initiative.

I hope you ponder why they took the time and initiative to put this all together, and why they chose to delete it. Imagine if this organization just stuck to the “truth”. Imagine the impact it could have.

Here is that version.

One of the usual suspects mentioned the original PDF was from a couple years ago, which led me to the December 5th, 2016 edition of the news and a link – from vapers.org.uk.

It was there I found the final edited version of their Truth Manipulative ® . A stark, filtered version (I crack me up) with large and very distracting graphics. Oh, there’s speckled, peppered, tucked and reworded truth within.


What are they trying to hide?


While all in the wording, the Truth Manipulative ® is strong and sprinkled between facts and distracting graphics…and I realized I’d been on this page before. In fact, I’ve quoted some of it!

I can only come to the conclusion those who read the original wanted it filtered to their narrative. To coincide with a manipulation of the Truth.

Their narrative. Their snippets.

With a “download report” button at the top, here is their filtered version.

Their final released statement shows:

More research is needed to understand how e-cigarettes might help smokers completely switch from combustible tobacco products.

It claims:

Currently, most adults who use e-cigarettes continue to smoke combustible cigarettes. If this pattern holds, it will substantially limit potential positive health impacts from e-cigarettes.


Why are they manipulating the truth?


Shockingly – in part – it states:

Furthermore, any public health benefit from e-cigarettes will not be fully realized in an unregulated environment. The FDA must regulate and carefully review these products to ensure that they meet the public health standard established by the Tobacco Control Act. Only then will consumers, health care providers and public health officials be able to reliably evaluate and identify products that are of the highest quality and are most likely to help smokers completely switch from cigarettes.

Truth Manipulation:

“…adding e-cigarettes to the market may yield some benefit, but will likely save fewer than 2 percent of lives that otherwise would have been lost to smoking…”

WHY would they remove the original PDF? Seemed – even by my standards, – not perfect, but reasonable and truthful.

It reminds me that they’ve done some cherry-picking before.

It’s at this point I normally would go into a fevered babbling tirade, but choose not to do so for this blog.

I’ll let you compare the two and find the differences from the PDF above – in contrast to the public link below.

Besides, “fewer than 2 percent” really isn’t important, and while all in the wording, the Truth Manipulative ® is strong.

Action needed on e-cigarettes


I’d like to thank A.J. Moll for resurfacing this subject in a tweet for me to find, along with this tweet from Edward Hubert linking to the (unfamiliar to me) PDF from Truth Manipulative ®, and Jukka for being on the ball as well.


You should see this.

You really should. Or shall. Could? You know you want to.

Oh, go on – make a decision!

The Truth Shall Set Ye Fret

Your Right To Vape Is At Risk!

Um. Yes, yes it is. This short survey should take less than 2 minutes. It would make the Georgia vaping community very happy to see this filled out. Please share with your groups.

Your Right To Vape Is At Risk!

Three Takeaways From Filter’s Tobacco Harm Reduction and Health Justice Event

This piece from Dr. Sheila Vakharia, Helen Redmond, and Dr. Marewa Glover covers panic, prohibition and tobacco harm reduction from three well-respected professionals.

Three Takeaways From Filter’s Tobacco Harm Reduction and Health Justice Event

Measurements of electronic cigarette-generated particles for the evaluation of lung cancer risk of active and passive users

Pretty serious information being ignored by the masses in “public health”, I got a bit excited seeing this – and realized it was from 2018. Stranger, for some reason I didn’t have it in my bookmarks.

The explanation is “Excess Lifetime Cancer Risk is 5 orders of magnitude lower than that of mainstream traditional cigarettes smoke, and also lower than the guideline values defined by EPA and WHO.”

The explanation below – by Thad Marney via CASAA’s facebook group, (you are a member, right?) is critical to my understanding.

“For the record, one order of magnitude lower represents numbers that are at least 90% smaller, two orders of magnitude is at least 99% smaller, etc… So 5 orders of magnitude means e-cigarettes generate at least 99.999% less Excess Lifetime Cancer Risk than smoking, according to these measurements.”

I did not know that, Thad, and I thank you for explaining it.

Measurements of electronic cigarette-generated particles for the evaluation of lung cancer risk of active and passive users

“Think of the children™.”

The “debate” among vapers over the years of having children “for our side” in a courtroom continues. I’m all for it. Others not so much. The other side hides behind children. It’s two minutes long, and should be done at every hearing across the country.

The Grubby Face Of An Epidemic

Speaking of ‘epidemics’… Dave himself says “It is shocking and readers of a nervous disposition are advised to skip to the next article.”

Now you can make an informed choice. I crack me up.

The Grubby Face Of An Epidemic

McConnell: T21 Bill Will Open a Debate on Vaping and Children’s Health

Speaking of manipulation, Jim McDonald explains.

McConnell: T21 Bill Will Open a Debate on Vaping and Children’s Health

Why is America’s biggest tobacco company trying to increase the legal smoking age to 21?

For the serious in-depth reader. Not for the faint of heart.

My pal Ruth Malone is quoted: “90 percent of smokers start before they’re of legal age…”

Why is America’s biggest tobacco company trying to increase the legal smoking age to 21?

FDA Holds Scientific Workshop on Youth E-Cigarette Cessation Treatment Strategies

I wouldn’t hold my breath, but… all sciencey… I’m… well, there it is, including “Gaps In Information” to include “needs to be better understood “, “the need to track these products”…

…and my favorite, contrary to the brain damage claim: “nicotine and other chemicals have on the neurodevelopmental stage for children are unknown“…

Ohio Vapor Trade Association

“And active membership is much more important than a membership with a lot of people.” ~ Nick Orlando.

The Ohio Vapor Trade Association (OHVTA) held their 2019 conference on Tuesday, May 14th, where OHVTA President James Jarvis hosted Ohio State Representative Doug Green, and Ohio State Senator John Eklund.

Along with James Jarvis, speaking at the event was Ohio Rep. Doug Green, Ohio Senator John Eklund, OHVTA Lobbyist Charlotte Hickcox , Nick Orlando with Florida Smoke Free Association, Keynote Speaker Dimitris Agrafiotis of Tennessee Smoke Free Association, Tony Abboud with Vapor Technology Association (VTA), and Fig Ramsey of Vape Tithing.

Also joining the conference was Jonathan Varner, head of JVA Campaigns (OHVTA’s digital media firm), along with Kevin Boehner and Justin Zink of the Ohio Chamber of Commerce.


This meeting included an active power-bank of knowledge with insightful points of view, experience and education across the day-long conference with members from Florida to California. Industry guests spoke about current issues including lobbying, underage sales and proactively navigating the ever-changing landscape and future.


Image may contain: 6 people, people smiling, indoor

Changing The Conversation

OHVTA is changing the conversation with lawmakers.

Representative Green and Senator Eklund spoke to the group with sincerity about issues and answered questions. One question was about the best way to go about contacting them, and the answer was clear: email or phone calls. Their staffers take each call and relay it to them.

They want to hear from consumers and businesses, and – we were told, oftentimes lawmakers don’t hear anything about issues they’re voting on, so your call or email could change the mind of your lawmaker.


In Ohio, trying to define vaping products as tobacco and restricting adult access (Tobacco 21) is another concern to adults as another attendee, Lindsey Stroud (below) points out here.

Left to right, myself, Fig Ramsey & Lindsey Stroud.

If you told me 6 years ago when I switched that I’d be sitting in Columbus, Ohio for an event like this – I’d have called you insane.

Instead, I was honored to be invited to an industry event, attending this meeting with the perspective of a concerned consumer, much like when I attended “A Billion Lives“. With great concern.

Witnessing what I did, I discovered heroes with one common goal. What I experienced was listening to actively engaged members (and leaders) in this industry who are passionate about their business, their customers, and attain their goal: To help smokers choose a safer alternative. To educate lawmakers. To educate consumers.

Notably, these professionals are proactive about keeping those products out of hands of underage youth. Furthermore, those same people are concerned about politicians trying to take their livelihood, and your choice away from them, and you.

If Ohio is an example of how trade organizations represent the industry, I’m impressed. These people are part of the solution. These folks have a network and discuss experience with local, state and national issues with each other. Engaging. Inspiring. Proactive.

I left this meeting with a renewed sense of hope from these business leaders fighting for consumers who have switched and those who may choose to switch, despite government resistance for the choice to do so.


If you are a consumer, join CASAA. Be engaged. If you’re in business and you haven’t, BE ENGAGED. Join an industry group. I don’t care who you choose, but choose. Conduct yourself as if your life and lives around you, and your business(es) depends upon it. If you don’t, who will?

If you don’t know why, go here.

FDA Performance Measures

Smoking is a government-run business. You people need to stop quitting smoking before they go out of business.

Click to enlarge

The U.S. FDA’s “keep smoking we need the money” train involves predictions and profit.

So far, government, public “health” groups, researchers, tobacco “control” & other funded “experts” have record losses totalling $72.96 Billion dollars in 11 short years.

Paper Links E-Cigarette Use To Child Abuse

Imagine if you will, a chance to use research to improve… oh never mind. “Non-Profit” groups abusing children as pawns in anti-ecig propaganda is child abuse.

The link to this idiotic article below uses a (recommended) “do not link” to prevent (it) from improving their websites’ position in search engines.

Less smoking is concerning for at least 6 “health” groups

It seems “less smoking” is a concern – and an investigation is warranted. Of course…

Their problem? The “unauthorized” claims that the company’s e-cigarettes help users stop smoking. I remember one of the brilliant ads showing “Quit. Start smoking again“. Thirty times. Why? Because it’s truthful on the average number of times smokers try to quit (here). Brilliant. That you’ve allegedly pissed off your secret partners with Tobacco-Free Kids? Even though I despise you, well done, Juul.

These groups aren’t going after the companies making “authorized” government “approved” claims of patches or gums being “helpful” to smokers, unethically, and more specifically, from themselves? They’ve known these facts since at least 2002.

Even Stan “Stuff & Puff” Glantz “believes” nicotine replacement therapy “should only be available if the smoker commits to regular counseling to use it properly”. He states in the same article “The tobacco companies are generally 20 or 30 years ahead of the public health community in their thinking about their issues”… which gives me a whole lot of nope trusting an alleged “expert” with 30+ years playing one around the country.

I don’t use the “do not link” for this one – because I want them to know where this hit comes from. I also enjoy it when I get hits from them on occasion. (“Hi, Matt!”)

Nicotine and Brain Damage

LOTS of “nicotine” “can hurt” the “adolescent brain” lately… up to 25 years old I’ve seen, heard, read about 7,000 times.

“Wait a second. . . . Nicotine does not interfere with cognitive ability.” ~ Dr. Nora Volkow of the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) in 2014.

While I don’t normally tweet or blog about pot – (nothing against it, I’m an old former stoner from the 80’s) – this one – liner gem was hidden in this 2014 article.

With all the rhetoric since DECEMBER, In the “youth use” arena, this chart came up… with “never smoking” adolescents in the U.S.A..

MAKING AN EPIDEMIC (PART 1).

I covered, among other things, “snippets and narratives” before. Fellow Ohioan Bo McCoy, MBA – does the same.

  • Without publication the study could be used and interpreted in any way the reader sees fit. It has been said, numbers don’t lie; but sometimes numbers don’t tell you the whole truth either.
  • Getting advance copies of a study gives agencies a clear advantage in preparing the use of the information against or sway legislation in favor or a prejudicial interpretation. 
  • Finally, keeping the study in close-knit circles precludes any opposition from using the study.

REMOVE all doubt.

Another stunning OUTSTANDING tweet caught my eye this week. From CASAA has said what I’ve said. A thousand times.

FDA “deemed” vaping products “tobacco” on National Tobacco Day. Do YOU agree to the definition – and “any” tax as tobacco? You accept that? Huh.

NO taxes, NO addiction, and NO gateway. They want to impose regulations, restrictions, taxes, and BANS of less smoking to cover their fiscal improprieties. PERIOD. Once they (have) take the opportunity, they’ll never stop trying to regulate, restrict, tax, and BAN less smoking.

“You’ve just ADMITTED GUILT to something that doesn’t even exist and THEY WIN.”

Pick your shovel, man your posts, start digging.
