As our industry continues to grow, even mainstream publications are being forced to concede that there is some evidence that electronic cigarettes might be effective in helping smokers to quit. We have known this for some time. Once again, I’ll let the evidence speak for itself:
Vape Shops In Mascot, VA This is the moment you’ve been waiting for. You did your research, you read this guide, and you picked out, purchased, and assembled your first e cig setup – but now what? This thing feels nothing like a traditional cigarette (even most cig-a-likes feel different than regular cigarettes), and you might be intimidated by its sheer awesomeness – or by the fact that you don’t want to look like an idiot vaping your e cig in public. We’ve all been there. Even though vapor looks a heck of a lot like smoke, using an e cig is quite a bit different than actually smoking – but that’s part of what makes vaping a-freaking-mazing!
The risks of inhaling DA were first discovered in the summer of 2000, when a handful of workers in a microwave popcorn plant in Missouri started getting diagnosed with a rare, severe, irreversible lung disease called bronchiolitis obliterans. Even non-smokers who worked at the plant were getting sick, and investigators soon discovered it was linked to inhaling diacetyl—which gave the popcorn that “real butter” taste—on a daily basis. Soon after, NIOSH, the research branch of the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), recommended guidelines for factories where DA and AP is used, to prevent workers from getting sick. But OSHA has yet to translate those recommendations into meaningful regulation.
“We get it, you vape.” The vaper, stereotypically male, has become an object of ridicule, derided in the same category as the self-proclaimed “nice guy” who’s really anything but. Nothing illustrates this more colorfully than the memes that jab at vape aficionados for ostentatiously showing off their smoke products. Vapers, as the stereotype goes, can’t just vape; they need you to know about it.
According to the study, nearly all of the 2.6 million adults who vape in Britain are current or former smokers using e-cigarettes to help them quit. Only a small fraction are teenagers.
“Most participants (72 percent) were former smokers, and 76 percent were using e-cigarettes daily. At baseline, current users had been using e-cigarettes for three months, took 150 puffs per day on their e-cigarette and used refill liquids containing 16 mg/ml of nicotine, on average. Almost all the daily vapers at baseline were still vaping daily after one month (98 percent) and one year (89 percent). Of those who had been vaping daily for less than one month at baseline, 93 percent were still vaping daily after one month, and 81 percent after one year. In daily vapers, the number of puffs per day on e-cigarettes remained unchanged between baseline and one year. Among former smokers who were vaping daily at baseline, 6 percent had relapsed to smoking after one month and also 6 percent after one year.”
Believe it or not, but that fact that using an e cig is DIFFERENT than smoking a cigarette helps you disassociate the ritual of smoking with satiating your nicotine cravings. However, there’s no doubt that there is a little bit of a learning curve when you first start vaping, but we’ve got you covered.
“The views of the community from the outside are more negative than ever,” vaping reporter and blogger Shawn Avery said. Avery writes for the brand blog of Drip Club, an online retailer and brand curator that could be called the Gilt or Thrillist of vaping. He’s one of the few writers combing the Internet — as well as L.A., the modern Mecca for vaping companies and communities — for insights into the vaping community, writing everything from tongue-in-cheek listicles about vaper stereotypes to researched stories about nicotine addiction and transparently flawed anti-vaping research papers.
