Vaping In The News – October 7th, 2017

Public Health Officials Urge Use of Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems ~ When enough is enough ~ DOH urged to classify e-cigarettes as ‘less harmful’ ~ Potential deaths averted in USA by replacing cigarettes with e-cigarettes ~ Vaping as a Stick ~ Who’s Standing Up To Stop Vaping Being Used As A Tool Of Coercion? ~ Science Lesson: How Vaping Leads To Smoking Cessation ~ Research Tools to Inform FDA Regulation of Snus ~ E-cigarettes work: I’d prescribe them if I could ~ “Achieving Smokefree Aotearoa by 2025”




In this weeks edition of the news: another pattern… Urgings, less harmful, deaths averted… standing up… science…

I’m not sure there’s a word for the childish battle between those who allegedly call themselves “public health” and those who act like it

I’ve asked if their ploys are a “Strategy or Tragedy“…

I’ve even gone as far as devising an assessment tool here….

I’ll continue to enjoy what I will now call an “exhibition match”, what I predicted as “Plausible Deniability” here, “Pavlov’s Dog” here. And of course, the “Keep Smoking” camp is covered here and here.

Please, no wagering.

This is Vaping In The News for the week ending October 7th, 2017




Public Health Officials Urge Use of Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems

I apologize for failing to bring this piece from Lindsey Stroud to your attention last week.

You read that right, now read it.

Public Health Officials Urge Use of Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems


When Enough Is Enough

This phrase needs to be said more. Inept “experts” love to say “need more research”, largely ignoring what’s already out there.

When enough is enough


DOH urged to classify e-cigarettes as ‘less harmful’ option for smokers

In between the screaming, public health “experts”, and tobacco control, should prepare an exit strategy.

DOH urged to classify e-cigarettes as ‘less harmful’ option for smokers


Potential deaths averted in USA by replacing cigarettes with e-cigarettes

Huh.

Related from the American Council on Science and Health (ACSH)

Vaping as a Stick

Because as a smoker, you shall be beaten into submission. Do as your told.

Paul takes a swing here:

Vaping as a Stick

AND from Dick Puddlecoat:

Who’s Standing Up To Stop Vaping Being Used As A Tool Of Coercion?


Science Lesson: How Vaping Leads To Smoking Cessation

Carl has a lesson…


Research Tools to Inform FDA Regulation of Snus

“Studies showed low abuse liability for snus and low levels of consumer demand.”
and “is likely to neither result in substantial public health harm nor benefit.”

E-cigarettes work: I’d prescribe them if I could

I personally don’t like the word “prescribe” myself, I don’t want pharmaceutical companies in control, and despise any thoughts of subsidies funding tobacco control. What I do want is Doctors being aware and in control of proper information to relay to their patients.


“Achieving Smokefree Aotearoa by 2025”: a response to critiques

I’ll allow you to read it and make an informed decision.

SCREAM TEST / Scream Test Update ~ DANA Statement: Australia ~ THR4Life ~ FDA Warnings ~ Air Quality ~ Corruption ~ Show Me The Money ~ Gonzo Gives ~ Snork ~ Tobacco Taxes ~ Tobacco Experts ~ Regulator Watch ~ Foundation For A Smoke-Free World


 

Experts in tobacco CONtrol are nervous and well aware of their demise as they squealed like stuck pigs after the announcement of Foundation for a Smoke-Free World and Philip Morris’s 1 Billion dollar commitment to the same…

Australia finds nurses on board with vaping… An introduction to the Board Members of THR4life… The FDA warnings are useless…. Gonzo Gives…. Regulator Watch… Foundation For A Smoke-Free World…Taxes… and more.

This is Vaping In The News for the week ending September 23rd, 2017


😱 Scream Test

This reads like a desperate eulogy written by well seasoned & nearly extinct tobacco CONtrol freaks.

To shed light upon on themselves and their continued failure as “experts” is sadly amusing. I encourage one of you to send these idiots some flowers. Tell them to try harder. They can do it.

(Thanks to the authors!)

A “Frank Statement” for the 21st Century?

Scream Test Update

I would be remiss, and this would not be complete without Dick Puddlecoat’s explanation:

Scream Test Update

(My take is further down.)


DANA Statement: Australia

Drug and Alcohol Nurses of Australasia Incorporated (DANA) has released a statment. I don’t agree with “every” single part, but finally, some common sense – shockingly from the land of disbelief and fairy tales of Chapman & Freeman, Australia.

DANA Position Statement on E-Cigarettes


THR4Life

I’d like to introduce you to the Board I am proudly a part of.

Tobacco Harm Reduction For Life


FDA Warnings

More useless notices that won’t be read by anyone.

“FDA failed to present any data — much less the substantial evidence required under the [Administrative Procedure Act]…”

FDA to study warnings for cigarette packaging


Air Quality

The Centers for Disease Control did a test. Huh. Jim McDonald delves into what they did, or didn’t find… and won’t talk about.

What did the CDC find when they tested vape shop air?


Corruption

No. Couldn’t be. Say it isn’t so.

Vrdolyak, associate collected $10 million in unauthorized tobacco fees, prosecutors say


Show Me The Money

Certainly there’s no conflict of interest here… CVS has committed $50 million dollars to get their way.

The American Cancer Society is now joined at the hip to help bully fund “tobacco-free” campuses and has “awarded” $20,000.00 to another campus to become nannies to adults.

Monetary grant encourages a tobacco free generation by The American Cancer Society


Gonzo Gives

What, you may ask, is Gonzo gives? Go ahead, ask. Meanwhile, I see frustration from many in the vaping community.

Then, I see this, and it inspires me.

GONZO GIVES FAQ


Snork

They called this one “Juice monsters” here.


Tobacco Taxes

Since National Tobacco Day, this has been coming… if you didn’t believe it, it’s ready to go – and if you’re new here, nicotine is considered tobacco.

Jim McDonald, again, covers this eloquently here:

Senate bill would tax vapes and cigarettes the same

Tobacco Control ‘Experts’ Fight AGAINST A Smoke-Free World

Please indulge me in a bit of shameless self-promotion. I’d like to take a moment to proudly introduce my first submission to the Daily Caller & Daily Vaper. I was humbled, surprised and honored when I was contacted to submit to them.

I was also relieved. Why? The consideration was immediate. With 20 million possible eyes, and no pop ups, I’m in.

Instead of preaching to the choir, I hope their estimated audience of 20 million people might see what this blog has been trying to say for (4+ years) so long.

My submission on the scream test from above:

Tobacco Control ‘Experts’ Fight AGAINST A Smoke-Free World


Foundation For A Smoke-Free World

This is what causes tobacco control to pull their hair out. I’m enjoying the show.

You can see the website here : Foundation For A Smoke-Free World


Regulator Watch

ANY attention to any attempt to STOP the Food and Drug Administration to cease and desist is attention. Some disagree, some are supportive.

One may agree or disagree in the tactics deployed by any industry or consumer group, but to have egos in the way of progress towards what should be little to no regulation of vaping products, (industry manufacturing standards, no sales tax other than normal sales tax), one with half a brain would give deeper consideration to any efforts being put forth rather than dismissing them.

My deepest thanks to Brent Stafford from Regulator Watch for continuing to educate me as a consumer in what seems like an endless regulatory carnival ride.

Tobacco Harm Reduction For Life

bod1

Tobacco Harm Reduction 4 Life (THR4Life) was established to help smokers regain control over their lives by providing balanced and accurate information about tobacco harm reduction.

The primary goal for this organization is honesty and transparency in public health.


What Is “Tobacco Harm Reduction”?

Less harm. Freedom for the consumer choosing an alternative to smoking by being educated in different forms of reducing or elimination of tobacco.

From the traditional forms like a patch or gum, “heat not burn” products, reading an Allen Carr book, or e-cigarettes, the choices need to be clear. It is also imperative to educate the consumer in the failure rates, success rates and side effects of each product.

THR4Life wants to support and educate consumers, allowing them to understand their options in a way that hasn’t been attempted in the United States.

In finding a way to describe “tobacco harm reduction” while writing this, Carl V. Phillips had this to say:

“A harm reduction approach embodies basic human rights, concern for people’s welfare, an enlightened view of individual freedom and dignity, and an effort to resist egocentrism and appreciate others’ perspective and preferences.”

What is Tobacco Harm Reduction?


Whether by default or design, multiple attempts (failure), guilt and shame is “acceptable practice” with existing tactics in the field of  “tobacco control“.

Imagine depending on a trained expert THIRTY times?


Why THR4Life Is Different

Informed choice is something standard “help” fails to focus on for the consumer. For a smoker or smokers families, helping to make an informed choice to reduce or stop tobacco use is a personal one.

With Tobacco Harm Reduction 4 Life, the consumer is the primary focus, and the organization is dedicated to providing balanced and accurate information about the myriad of available tobacco harm reduction (THR) products.

Instead of guilt or shame, information on risk and success rates of available products are paramount in helping someone choose the best method for them, and why.


Tobacco Harm Reduction 4 Life

This organization was a seed planted, an idea, in fact – a vision –  from Ray Yeates of  THRA (Tobacco Harm Reduction Association of Canada) quite a while back and is now breathing air in the United States.

Kevin Price announced the Board Of Directors of Tobacco Harm Reduction 4 Life (A 501c3) July 17th, 2017.

The Board consists of Kevin Price, Lindsey Stroud, Skip Murray, Jenny Hoban, Kevin Crowley (myself) and David Goerlitz.

Members of the Board have already spoken in Detroit Lakes, MN  where efforts to raise the age of smoking, including vaping, would have been 21.

“At the Sept.12th public hearing, and after four months of deliberation, the Detroit Lakes City Council voted (6 – 2) to take no action, turning down all proposed anti-vape ordinance changes – including Tobacco 21! The two council members that did want to move forward, wanted to do so by excluding vapor from the language!”

Tobacco buying age raise ordinance in Detroit Lakes dead for now

Another goal is a national toll-free hotline for consumers. Yes, you read that right.


I’d like to introduce you to the Board of Directors:

 

Kevin Price

 

What was the primary reason you chose to take a position with Tobacco Harm Reduction 4 Life?

Bring correct information to smokers.

What advice can you give to someone who is choosing a product to help them choose to stop smoking?

I advise smokers to try the product that has the highest success rate.

In one sentence, what do you want consumers to know?

I want smokers to know the truth so they can make an informed decision.

 


Lindsey Stroud

What was the primary reason you chose to take a position with Tobacco Harm Reduction 4 Life?

Since getting involved with the ENDS community through my role at Heartland, I have been exposed to such a unique population of people who are promoting healthier lifestyles through tobacco harm reduction products. THR4Life is one of the few groups that chooses to embrace all of those products, including snus, electronic cigarettes, and heat-not-burn tobacco products. It is one of the few groups that seeks to inform the public that tobacco should not be demonized, but rather, its usage can be done safely through tobacco harm reduction products.

What advice can you give to someone who is choosing a product to help them choose to stop smoking?

The internet can be your friend, and it can be your enemy. There is a TON of useful information online, but there is always an angle of bias that companies, groups, and others use to push whatever it is that they are pushing. Use the internet like one would use Wikipedia when researching some topic, it’s a nice starting place, but it’s not the end all be all. Conversations with persons in the industry will always be the best go-to, and some of those will probably be able to take place online. Make sure to ask lots of questions and know that most persons in these industries do want to help you quit smoking and they are willing to help create a system that works for you, and it’s way better than the government’s federal helpline.

In one sentence, what do you want consumers to know?

Quitting smoking is very difficult, but the tobacco harm reduction community is an enormous collaboration of individuals who’s goal is to reduce the negative health outcomes of tobacco usage in a manner that is more than “quit smoking or die.”


Skip Murray

What was the primary reason you chose to take a position with Tobacco Harm Reduction 4 Life?

As a Mom who almost lost her son before he was 30 to a smoking related heart attack, I feel it’s my duty to do what ever I can to help people quit smoking. It is also important to fight for modern methods that will reduce the harm of smoking and give people a greater chance at being successful in their efforts to quit.

What advice can you give to someone who is choosing a product to help them choose to stop smoking?

Don’t believe everything you hear in the news. People are afraid of change. Some people have financial reasons to fight change. Think about what you like the most about smoking, what gives you satisfaction. Then look at the various ways there are to quit smoking and try things that won’t make you feel deprived.

I’ll use myself as an example. I enjoyed the “social” aspect of smoking – taking a break at work with others and going and having a smoke. Smoking gave me something to “do” – I liked the hand to mouth, the inhale and exhale.

I liked having my cigarettes to lean on, my “crutch” when I was sad, stressed, or emotional. I think the reason I failed at things like the patch is that even if it was giving me nicotine, it wasn’t filling my physical, social, and emotional needs that were tied to my smoking. I think that is why vaping was the right “tool” for me. I am now meeting my physical, social, and emotional needs without the harm of lighting tobacco on fire.

In one sentence, what do you want consumers to know?

I want you to know that I believe in you, I care about you, and I support you.

 


Jenny Hoban

#1. What was the primary reason you chose to take a position with Tobacco Harm Reduction For Life?

A: Working with Thr4life is an opportunity to work along side some of the best THR advocates in the nation, to refocus tobacco prevention and harm reduction strategies back on the people who are affected by tobacco the most: the smokers and their families.

#2. What advice can you give to someone who is choosing a product to help them choose to stop smoking?

A: More people have quit smoking by switching to vaping, than by all pharmaceutical cessation therapies combined. I have witnessed first hand, thousands of people transform their lives by making the switch, after having failed with all other products on the market. Vaping has proven to be the most effective pathway to becoming smoke-free, but at the end of the day, folks just need to do what works best for them. And whichever avenue that may be, we are here for support, encouragement, and education.

#3. In one sentence, what do you want consumers to know?

A: Only YOU are in control of you, and capable of anything you set your intentions on; don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

 


Kevin Crowley

What was the primary reason you chose to take a position with Tobacco Harm Reduction 4 Life?
 
To make a difference. I am a consumer. I am familiar with and respect the other board members. I understand their passion. I appreciate involving myself with others who have a common objective of helping the consumer without them feeling shamed or obligated. Consumers should be educated – far better than the government allows, to make an informed choice about less harmful products from a consumer perspective.
What advice can you give to someone who is choosing a product to help them choose to stop smoking?
 
Ask questions about the side effects and success rates of any product. Don’t walk into a grocery store presuming they will work. Never assume the person telling you is knowledgable with the product they are referring you with. What may work for one person might not work as well for another.
 
In one sentence, what do you want consumers to know?
 

Government and those in the care and custody of “public health” are lying, to their advantage, of both the effectiveness and ineffectiveness of available products.


David Goerlitz

What was the primary reason you chose to take a position with Tobacco Harm Reduction 4 Life?

The primary reason I joined tobacco harm reduction for life was because we are peers. We are compatible in that we all basically want the same thing and our core missions or similar. No lawyers, shoes, and hidden agendas that I see with other groups and organizations. Best hope for new and innovative strategies without the political crap.

What advice can you give to someone who is choosing a product to help them choose to stop smoking?

If smokers longing to quit and finally reached that transitional point to seek out what best will work for him or her the majority will already know that traditional methods do not work. We have already witnessed 9 million smokers transition to a 95% safer alternative and for the most part successfully. It really is quite that simple and not that profound.

In one sentence, what do you want consumers to know?

Consumers need to know that Vaping Is Not Smoking and they have everything to gain.

FDA & Fear

Fear is the business they’re in.

“The Food and Drug Administration is now on the wrong side of a new anti-vaping campaign. Instead of helping teens reject using tobacco or e-cigarettes, the new FDA plan would end up discouraging people from quitting cigarette smoking — an outcome no one wants.”

The FDA shouldn’t give into irrational e-cigarette fears


Nicotine Usage Survey for US & UK Users

From personal experience, I know there is always skepticism when surveys are made, formed and posted.

This survey is a from a reliable and known source.

A Nicotine-Focused Framework for Public Health

The FDA’s Mitch Zeller & Dr. Scott Gottlieb have been published in the New England Journal of Medicine. It’s not a medical study, it’s a letter.

Gippy & Zippy are claiming nicotine is the center of “addiction” & the contrived FDA funded reduction of nicotine as the possible answer to reduce tobacco use…

(Why are other “chemicals” in tobacco not considered addictive or “tobacco”? *“Nicotine constitutes approximately 0.6–3.0% of the dry weight of tobacco”.)

*Reference: Wikipedia

Here’s the “letter” in full:

A Nicotine-Focused Framework for Public Health

Here’s my take – if you’re interested:

A Nicotine-Focused FDA Framework.



Professor Glantz

Here lies Professor Glantz (Puff-N-Stuff) babbling about the tobacco industry knowing things like the patch & gum don’t work – unless there’s the obligatory counseling… or some drivel like that.

I don’t ever recall Nicorette saying you’d need counseling with your patch… but I could be wrong.

If nicotine were “addictive” to begin with… ahhhh, I digress.

What the tobacco companies know about NRT: Without counselling, it keeps people smoking

A Nicotine-Focused FDA Framework.

faces

The FDA’s Mitch Zeller & Dr. Scott Gottlieb have been published in the New England Journal of Medicine.

“A Nicotine-Focused Framework for Public Health”


While claiming nicotine is the center of “addiction” and the reduction of nicotine as the answer to reduce tobacco use… their seemingly contrived objective is in part below:

“The agency’s new tobacco strategy has two primary parts: reducing the addictiveness of combustible cigarettes while recognizing and clarifying the role that potentially less harmful tobacco products could play in improving public health. We must also work toward a greater role for medicinal nicotine and other therapeutic products in helping smokers to quit and remain nonsmokers.”


While I am completely opposed to the framing of the nicotine addiction theory without tobacco, there were two other parts I’m not convinced quite yet that we’re on the right path; bold is my emphasis:

  1. reducing the addictiveness of combustible cigarettes”
  2. “We must also work toward a greater role for medicinal nicotine and other therapeutic products in helping smokers to quit and remain nonsmokers.”
  1. The focus on “nicotine” is, in my eyes, a subliminal way to keep the definition of e-liquid as tobacco, manipulate e-cigarette products as tobacco, and collect unjust & undue tax – on a product that is not addictive without tobacco, and not tobacco.
  2. The teetering on medicinal nicotine & other therapeutic products gives a direct odor of pharmaceutical product and control, something they’ve already had and failed miserably with.

I predicted this In March of 2016:

Keep smoking, we’ll just help you lower your nicotine.

Low-Nicotine Cigarettes Fail to Sway Smokers

That article is here:

The Myth of ‘Light’ Cigarettes



On a positive note

The publication states:

Nicotine, though not benign, is not directly responsible for the tobacco-caused cancer, lung disease, and heart disease that kill hundreds of thousands of Americans each year.

Excellent….and goes on to add

…within a landscape including other, noncombustible products such as e-cigarettes, represents a promising foundation for a comprehensive approach to tobacco harm reduction. In working toward this vision, the FDA is committed to striking an appropriate balance between protecting the public and fostering innovation in less harmful nicotine delivery.

That’s the first positive thing I’ve heard in some time from the government:

Tobacco Harm Reduction

responsibility2

I didn’t quit smoking. I didn’t stop smoking. I switched to a less harmful alternative. I chose to try a “cig-a-like” and I didn’t want a cigarette within 48 hours, and my wife chose to do the same thing.

My journey was no different than most others who accidentally found an alternative to smoking that actually worked with no withdrawal and no noticeable side effects.


research

After more than four years, I’ve found myself in a cesspool of adults –  specifically professionals with titles and “I love me” walls – who pretend to have no common sense.

I take that back, there are side effects to not smoking with my chosen path.

Reading. LOTS of reading.

Research. Finding answers myself.

Asking questions and “networking”. I have found that if I don’t know or understand, someone will, without fail, answer my question both truthfully and in a way I will understand.

Blogging. To get what I do learn & understand out to others who hopefully will find it – and understand it.

Twitter. Immense knowledge and reference from worldwide advocates.

Questioning.

I am constantly questioning everything I thought I knew I was told about smoking.


Tobacco Harm Reduction.

Health and government organizations don’t subscribe to tobacco harm reduction. With them, you will find cessation.

According to Merriam-Webster, “cessation” is to stop.

  1. :  a temporary or final ceasing (as of action) :  stop mutually agreed to a cessation of fighting


blame

What “organizations” and government are doing is promoting a highly profitable and repeatable business.

The vulnerability of someone with great expectations isn’t considered, it is mocked.

They wrongfully blame the consumer. They blatantly blame “nicotine“.

What they “give away” are products made by pharmaceutical companies and an air of authority, combined with an illusion of an answer to help someone stop smoking.

The reality of these methods and the failure rates is dismal and never discussed.


Entertain yourself.

Call a quitline and ask them about the success rates with the patch or gum.

quit attempts the vaper


Success?

Well, I’ll let the display of an “expert” organization speak for themselves below:

quitting

 


What you do not see promoted is tobacco harm reduction.


For Life.

For the record, I am not against the patch, gum, lozenge, hypnosis, a self-help book, accupuncture, heat not burn, snus, smokeless tobacco, e-cigarettes, and other alternatives.

Only if used with extreme caution and understanding the well documented side effects, medication is also avaible to help someone choose to stop smoking.

I am, however against giving improper or bias information to those who don’t know any better and rely on “trusted” organizations, public health & government officials.

I will do this until I can’t type, call, scream, tweet or blog any longer.


Think of the possibilities.

I am a consumer. I have no ulterior motive.

I take that back, I have ulterior motive. The choice of smoker, the non-smoker and education of the consumer.

I have proudly joined the Board of Directors of THR4Life (Tobacco Harm Reduction 4 Life) along with 5 others:

Kevin Price, Lindsay Stroud, Skip Murray, Jenny Ho and David Goerlitz.

This group of individuals are strong, opinionated, intelligent and, without question, looking out for the consumer.

An idea, in fact – a vision –  from Ray Yeates of the THRA (Tobacco Harm Reduction Association of Canada) quite a while back is breathing air.

Kevin Price announced the Board Of Directors of Tobacco Harm Reduction 4 Life (A 501c3) July 17th, 2017. The Board consists of Lindsay Stroud Skip Murray, Jenny Ho, David Goerlitz and myself.

This organization will include a 1-800 number for smokers to call in with questions.

E-Cigarettes: A Tobacco Harm Reduction Assessment

tobacco-harm-reduction-graphic

Do you want to know if your “quit smoking” advice is sound? Do you believe you’re truly sincere about reducing tobacco use for Americans? Don’t you want to know you’re doing all you can? I certainly do.

I’ve devised this quick and easy interactive tool below for anyone in public health or tobacco control to assess the choices (and more) seen above for tobacco harm reduction, and your views.


Click on the link below, then click on your – or your association’s most likely “answer” you’d give to someone inquiring about switching to e-cigarettes in a phone call or in person.

Don’t be afraid.

E-cigarettes: A Tobacco Harm Reduction Assessment Tool


How’d you do?

Are you employing vigorous tobacco harm reduction methods to clients? I don’t believe you. Are you using a Strategy or Tragedy?

I wonder what those around you are thinking. Those people calling and asking questions? They’re going to figure this out eventually. There are millions of us. We’re getting louder and more pissed off with every single lie told. I’m tired of America settling for less.

If you’re a smoker, use this. Don’t be afraid of their answers.

“When tobacco use decreases, less smoking occurs.”

Alice in TobaccoLand.

aliceintobaccoland

According to Wikipedia, Tobacco control “is a field of international public health science, policy and practice dedicated to addressing tobacco use and thereby reducing the morbidity and mortality it causes”.

Let me break that down.

Public health science.  It also says practice.

Dedicated to addressing tobacco use via public health science, policy and practice.

Thereby reducing morbidity and mortality it causes.

It says mortality, not morality.

If the morality on vaping products doesn’t cease, the mortalities will continue.


Down the rabbit hole.

There are hundreds of organizations dedicated to addressing tobacco use. Those organizations are normally funded, among other things, by tobacco use. The Master Settlement Agreement, taxes, government grants and funding by pharmaceuticals trying convincing researchers to see “their side” so the FDA will trust & approve it are all part of the bigger picture. Don’t want any of them chasing us down the rabbit hole now, do we?

Let us have some tea, shall we?

 aliceintobaccolandtea

Tobacco control for the cessation world, involves “approved methods”, counseling, quit lines & other mythical suggestions in tobacco-land such as the always encouraging “quit or die”, you’re not trying hard enough… as smokers travel down the stop smoking hole…

Along come vaping products. Contested? Hot topic? Absolutely. Proof? Yep. Doubts? As far as your fingers can tweet or read in the media in the U.S.A..

It seems simple, really. Less tobacco use by smokers with an alternative in ANY way possible by anyone in the public health field, or by organizations like the Heart, Lung or Cancer associations…would be immediately and swiftly encouraged……well – that, my readers seems to be a fairy tale.

On to “Alice”.


To be balanced there has been some tweeting of vaping products as an alternative. I can’t possibly search for them all, but DID get a “maybe” here in 2015.


Here, in 2014, there was “waiting on evidence”.


Smokers falling a long way seem to always land in a hall with many locked doors….and a table appears… with concoctions and promises of cures to the smoker trying to stop with “try me” and “use as directed” and “FDA approved”. What do they feel, those trying so hard?

Shame.

Without success, a smoker is shamed regardless of the method chosen. (That is Tobacco Control training 101, is it not?)  Shamed, by everyone and their brother – who have been taught that forEVER.

Frustration.

Despite the EFFORT to cease tobacco use, the tobacco plant has nicotine. The cigarette has -how many other- chemicals that also MAKE tobacco addictive by design. Nicotine itself is not addictive, but the world doesn’t know – because they’ve been taught that as well… so they offer nicotine “replacement” therapies. (Love that word “therapy”).

Disillusion.

After multiple attempts for various reasons – be it poor health, children, mortality sinking in, whatever the personal decision was to try -the quit attempt fails or is aborted and the tobacco control machine turns to spin cycle. Round & round the smoker goes, falling down the rabbit hole.


We don’t know enough -about- long term effects. We know enough despite our own government’s challenge of regulations – we’ve stopped smoking -many accidentally- in a way NO other product or advice has come close to succeeding with on our journey down the hole. We communicate with each other via twitter, facebook and more. Learning daily. Empowered, making an impact.

As for long term effects? Well – we’re not smoking – if it were EXACTLY the same risk – I certainly wouldn’t have a blog.


Know enough, Alice. Make a commitment. Part of the perils of knowing enough is learning as much as you can, without bias and being able to relay that knowledge to others seeking information.

Speaking fluently with truth and conviction, will come naturally.


Long term:

agent

What is your definition of a long term study?

Supportive & hopeful methods are applied here.

BUT


The Pool of Tears

“Alice swims through her own tears and meets a mouse, who is swimming as well. She tries to make small talk with him in elementary French –  but her opening gambit “Où est ma chatte?” (“Where is my cat?”) offends the mouse and he tries to escape her.”

That’s the thing about Alice. Clarity. I’m still not sure how clear she is. I need some more tea!


RUTH


Pig and Pepper

“The Cheshire Cat appears in a tree, directing her to the March Hare’s house. He disappears, but his grin remains behind to float on its own in the air, prompting Alice to remark that she has often seen a cat without a grin but never a grin without a cat.”

 A Mad Tea-Party

“Alice becomes a guest at a “mad” tea party along with the March Hare, the Hatter, and a very tired Dormouse who falls asleep frequently, only to be violently woken up moments later by the March Hare and the Hatter. The characters give Alice many riddles and stories…”

   I cannot tell.


 Yes. That’s where a consumer could choose an alternative to tobacco.


Not sure about you, but the ‘real world’ is where we are using #e-cigarettes instead of tobacco.


 I’m as authentic as they come. Lorien is also. I troll her more than I troll you. 🙂

Ahhh…. nicotine. That’s another of my blogs.


  Potential? Huh. Safer but too early to be so blithely reassuring?


 See – told you Lorien is authentic. Genuine & approved.


 Which are you, proponent or opponent?


Alice, involved in a paper with C. Gartner:

Dueling letters: which one would you sign?


In 2014, DO INDEED was capitalized for emphasis. I appreciate that.


Advice from a Caterpillar

I appreciate the fact that “Alice” is willing to engage with most on twitter. As you know, most of her colleagues will block and never engage.

Simon Chapman and Stan GlANTZ are two examples of (legaleeze: may, might, could) conniving denying monkeys. (Haven’t blogged Capewell or McKee yet.)

Everyone tweets something they regret at one time or another. We’re all human  -except the jury isn’t in on @Entropy72 yet.

This is where I was actually shocked at you. I know from another – personal experience when a professional diagnosis became a lawsuit to a “commoner”. Thing is, we’re professionals just like you. All walks of life, including mental health.

 You took your well deserved lumps.

Then you did it again…….

I couldn’t tell if you were joking on this one any more than I can tell your true position on less harm with vaping products.

So off we go to the final chapter of Alice In TobaccoLand…


Alice’s Evidence

The Queen shouts her familiar “Off with her head!” but Alice is unafraid, calling them out as just a pack of cards, just as they start to swarm over her.

You engage with anecdotal vapers quaintly without making a statement. Teetering on a picket fence without committing. Rocking back and forth. A dangerous line of indecision. I strongly suggest focusing your eyes on the ball. Less tobacco use for the public. I imagine the implications of a “well respected by her peers” professional like yourself facing one of two possibilities.

  1. You’ll be ostracized by them by merely stating the emperor has no cloths. (Think of the thousands of twitter friends you’ll gain!)
  2.  You’ll empower them to take the stand with you, realizing the potential of millions of smokers very lives hang in the frustrating and disillusioned balance.

Either way, you can’t win, I suppose. Indignant irreverence for your own chosen profession, recognizing the “public” in public health and the public it intends to serve -at least at face value- is unacceptable.

You yourself are a Professor, a nurse, an environmental activist. The Editor of BMJ Tobacco Control Journal. You cannot convince me you’re set on sitting in the middle in a rocking chair on a fence. Being pragmatic  <–(funny that link mentions a unicorn) is “real-world application”.

I am the real world. This is not a guessing game, and lives are at stake. TAKE your eyes “OFF the ball” of tobacco for a moment. Vaping products are being regulated, restricted, taxed & banned as if – tobacco control’s livelihood – is at stake. Rather than being accepted as one way to become the end game, it is the ball they have become.

Speak to colleagues – some who are active tobacco control members around the world, all who have professional titles. They aren’t some rogue set of flunkies, they are your counterparts. Colleagues. Each are aiming for the same goal. Tobacco harm reduction. Here, at M.O.V.E..

Once you’ve done so, you can decide which this is. Real harm reduction, where you can join other members of M.O.V.E. and take a stand publicly against the fire and brimstone establishment  – who don’t like to be tested….

Or grab a match… pick your poison… and let the cards fall where they may.

cards


I invited you to the A Billion Lives premier, you respectfully declined.  (I was serious.)

I KNOW they’re going to be in California, I hope you go. Take Glantz with you.


Finally, If I’ve offended you in any way, shape or form, good.

Check Clive’s “Memo to public health grandees: vaping, vapers and you

for reference.

You shouldn’t be offended, though. Did you see what I wrote about Simple Simon Chimpmanzee?

I hope you don’t block me and we’ll continue learning from each other.

It is about health, after all.


Speaking of health, this one’s fresh off the Dick Puddlecoat press:

Keep smoking, we’ll just help you lower your nicotine.

They still insist nicotine is addictive. Dangerous, even. “They” claim more dangerous than heroin. That’s pretty drastic. Kind of scares me. Fine, dear reader, it doesn’t scare me. It scares the government enough, though, eh?

I’d like to sit down with “they” for a few hours, have some coffee. Discuss a few finer points of life in general, chat a bit, and tell them now they’re trying to convince everyone it’s the nicotine.

I say it’s NOT the nicotine. Stimulant, like coffee I’ll agree with. Drug? Fine.

Addictive? No. I’ve covered that here.

You know that doesn’t matter!

Update: Nicotine is not addictive.

They’re not listening to us. They have tobacco fields to tend to!

Are There Other Chemicals That May Contribute to Tobacco Addiction?


The FDA says – and non-committal as it sounds, that it does not “appear to have significant potential for abuse or dependence….. ” (addiction).

So, to make my prediction, since the New England Journal of Medicine released this

Randomized Trial of Reduced-Nicotine Standards for Cigarettes

Aaaand – The National Institute on Drug Abuse released this:

New Study Shows Benefits of Reducing Nicotine in Cigarettes

(Took their time to create and then tweeted this state of the art graphic:)

nicotinereducedcigarettes

Briefly – they mention towards the end of their “official” story:

(This is where the perpetuate their lie) –>Nicotine is responsible for the addictiveness of tobacco, but it is not the ingredient that causes cancer and heart and pulmonary diseases.

Smoking still causes nearly half a million deaths each year in our country. Research now suggests that reducing the nicotine in cigarettes to a fraction of its current levels may be one way to lessen the health-destructive power of these products.


Now, with all that, the media – because they do love a good story, I predict that this:

New ‘low-nicotine’ cigarette could help smokers kick habit

“It is our hope, that because that this is such an intrinsic health concern that we will be able to get this approved in a swift and fast process,” Gellman said.

The company will be working toward FDA approval by the end of 2016……   Huh.

I hate math, but let us do it quickly, shall we? I have a prediction to make!

Will lead to this:

Thank you, Jake Jacobson:

People will still smoke. People will try and use these, and someone in the professional health field will still say these are “safer”.

People will believe this is “safer”. Because they said so. Tobacco obviously isn’t the issue.

So, e-cigarettes are not safer? Huh.

Are. You. Stupid?

22nd Century launches magic 0 very low nicotine cigarettes in France

Could the Worlds Most Effective Quit Smoking Aid be a Low Nicotine Cigarette US Public Health Officials Think So

“The U.S. Food and Drug Association (FDA) funded a landmark study that showed 22nd Century’s proprietary Very Low Nicotine cigarettes were “associated with reductions in smoking, nicotine exposure, and nicotine dependence, with minimal evidence of nicotine withdrawal, compensatory smoking, or serious adverse events.” See study here: Randomized Trial of Reduced-Nicotine Standards for Cigarettes.”

Speaking of BAT in the UK: Now there’s a “safer” e-cigarette – because “scientists” developed it, it must be true.

New ‘safer’ e-cigarette with all the flavor of tobacco but ‘less harmful smoke’ is developed by scientists



From 2007, FDA Director Dr. Andrew von Eschenbach had quite a bit to say:

“We could find ourselves in the conundrum of having made a decision about nicotine only to have made the public health radically worse. And that is not the position FDA is in; we approve products that enhance health, not destroy it,” said von Eschenbach, a urologic surgeon and oncologist who was confirmed as FDA commissioner in December.

Later in the article:

“In an hourlong interview with AP reporters and editors, von Eschenbach repeatedly said the FDA doesn’t need more regulatory authority. When asked if the FDA needed more money, he suggested the agency needs to look at “enhancing our efficiencies, maximizing our outputs for the dollar invested on part of the American people.”

X-22 is the first and only smoking cessation product in the form of a combustible cigarette.

X-22 is a six-week prescription treatment which utilizes Very Low Nicotine (VLN) cigarettes (95% less nicotine than conventional cigarettes) to satisfy a smoker’s craving for cigarettes while separating the act of smoking from the rapid delivery of nicotine.

Red Sun

This is its American brand sold in more than 600 stores. It is a high nicotine cigarette. It might seem counterintuitive, especially given the health benefits claimed by its very low nicotine cigarettes, but high nicotine cigarettes could have significant health benefits as well.

X-22 has certain advantages:

  • It’s a cigarette, people seem to prefer that

  • It has no side effects, apart from the harmful effects of cigarette smoke

  • It has been proved effective in six clinical trials
