    Australian Heart Foundation back the Cancer Council and we know their position on ecigs!

    "Cancer Council and the National Heart Foundation are concerned about the proliferation of electronic cigarettes. We are particularly concerned about the way electronic cigarettes are being promoted to young people."

    its sad. I used to donate to the cancer council (my wife is in remission), but their stance on harm reduction for smokers goes against everything I believe. I no longer donate and will not until they change their stance.

    not that my donation alone will make them notice, but I just cant reconcile it at this time.

    amount saved by not smoking: $lots
    amount spent on vaping: $not enough

    It appears all these articles must be talking about prefilled disposable cigalikes.

    While sales of the devices could reach $5 billion next year, up from $1.5 billion in 2013, according to Kenneth Shea, a Bloomberg Intelligence analyst, their use appears to have stalled as traditional smokers reject the products and competition increases from generic vaporizers that can be refilled with liquid nicotine.

    Yet when it comes to the laws here they lob them in the same basket.
    Its going to be a hard battle when the other side really doesn't understand the difference in 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th gen devices.

    It's stupid to state that ecigs are aimed at young people...
    But people always fear what they don't know, I'd love to hear from someone here that has used ecigs for at least a month telling us that their breathing hasn't improved scince swapping to ecigs.
    I can now jog without getting puffed out to me that's enough proof for me.

    Its funny that they can bang on and on about no research on the safety of ecigs, yet they have no evidence of the young people claims.

    Sick to death of the young people claims .. its ok to watch soft porn and worship strippers in disguise with mysoginistic so and sos leading the cry.. (like bratz dolls and "artists like nicki minaj of anaconda music video fame amongst others) .. Its ok that they are given really graphic images of violence and anti smoking ads and fat ads... Great that they are allowed to drink a tonne of energy drinks or at 18 drink alcohol to thier hearts content etc .. In some states kids can even get electro shck therapy without parent consent ..They can even legally pick up smoking .. but vaping which apparently also has benefits to health .. nah they cant have that ..

    It's been 39 days since my last cigarette. I stopped smoking and started vaping and haven't even been tempted to have another butt.
    I've even started to reduce my nic levels down.
    My breathing has improved a lot. No more wheezing when breathing (I noticed it at night when i went to bed) or puffing and panting when i climb steps.
    I feel that I couldn't have given up without the help of e cigarettes. And I'm very proud of myself for doing so well.
    I just wish someone had told me about them earlier.

    This is worth a like yet in the scheme of things is dismissed as any evidence that vaping is beneficial, Oh no, we need studies, and more studies and then still will not concede that vaping has benefits.

    Doesnt matter about research, fact, lies or anything else really, they all pale in comparison to the dollar. You put ya left foot in ya put left foot out and thats what its all about!
