I haven't given this site a real update in quite a while, but current events are forcing me to it. Today, 8/8/16, the FDA is imposing the biggest piece-of-crap charlatan LIE on the American people since Prohibition went into effect: the "Deeming Regulations," designed to somehow magically turn something which ISN'T tobacco, into tobacco -- because they say it is.
I say they're full of shit, and really need to be removed from any position of any authority whatsoever, they have so egregiously abused it. They have lost ALL credibility, along with the CDC and WHO, thanks to their greedy, industry-serving stance on the greatest boon to public health since the smallpox vaccination -- yes, all the way back to the eighteenth century!
The "Deeming" regs also specify that vendors and manufacturers can no longer tell the truth: they can no longer say that vaping is at least 95% safer than smoking cigarettes -- even though it's true, and Public Health England and The Royal College of Physicians have said as much.
But guess what? I'm not a manufacturer nor a vendor; I'm just a housewife with a website, who very happily hasn't had a cigarette in just over two years now, thanks entirely to vaping -- and the FDA will not stifle me; I WILL tell the truth: if you switch to vaping from smoking, you have a much better chance of living longer, than if you continue smoking. You have a much better chance of not just living longer, but living better: less coughing, less disgusting mucus, less colds and flu, less tedious standing around in all weathers just to "get your fix," less poverty, less odious stink of your person and hair and garments, and a whole lot less ashes and burnholes in your clothing -- like, ZERO!
I won't lie; if you've been a smoker for a decade or three or five, you still may have some negative health consequences -- the damage from smoking is cumulative (like the damage from sunburn), and may still lead to cancer, even if the exposure is completely removed -- but your chance of NOT getting cancer or other serious tobacco-related illness is much greater if you don't keep adding to the risk, a puff at a time.
I will not be silenced. Vaping can save lives -- a billion of them, this century -- and the FDA is full of shit, and needs to be summarily dismissed.
That's right; a middle-aged housewife who found the miracle of e-cigarettes, quit smoking very easily, and now hasn't much better to do than haunt Twitter and reTweet all the pithy and TRUE things that my fellow vapers have to say about the safety and efficacy of e-cigarettes, to the complete disgruntlement of all the "public health" idiots who see all these happy vaping people and can't think of any better response than to call us "Big Vapor" -- telling the truth never even crossed their minds!
Just because it costs the state of California $75 million to wage a war on e-cigarettes (and science!), they figure we MUST be getting paid to go around contradicting them incessantly. We're getting paid alright -- by better health! And by not wasting so much money on the government's death machine! And since we've quit those nasty coffin nails, we've got much longer lives to look forward to, so they won't be getting rid of us anytime soon.
When I started vaping in January 2014, I thought it might allow me to cut down on smoking -- then I discovered that vaping would actually enable me to quit smoking altogether. Shortly after that, I learned that there are organizations and "people" (I use the term loosely) who are doing everything they can to take this miracle away from me and everyone else who's found this miraculously easy way to give up the coffin nails. If these greedy scoundrels get their way, smokers of the future might never know about vaping at all, or only know about the insipid variety being offered by Big Tobacco -- who don't want to lose their customers!
Well, I'm not going to just lie there and take it!
Those links just to the right will educate and inform you of all the many aspects of "e-cigarettes", and attempts at repressing our right to save our own lives, as well as some ways we might fight those who'd much rather we kept smoking -- and dying. I started this site mainly because creating websites is what I do, and I felt I needed to add my own small bit to the vaping community -- may it live long and prosper! Here you'll find my own opinions of the many egregious lies being told about vaping, as well as my own opinions of good links and vendors for those who are themselves interested in vaping, so check out the links (they'll open in a new window), scroll around, see what's going on!
Some of the links on this site are "affiliate links." That means if you click on the link and make a purchase, I will receive an affiliate commission (at no additional cost to you). Most of the vendor links are non-affiliate links, present because those are some of my favorite vendors, but no banners or links are present that I would not happily recommend to anyone.
