Although he says doctors have been referring patients to his shop, Dan is careful to emphasize electronic cigarettes are an alternative to smoking, not a cure.

There are thousands of harmful chemicals in traditional cigarettes.

Trying To Quit? This E-Cigarette Tweets Your Shame

But the people at R/GA say they view the tool as more of a tracking device along the lines of the Jawbone wristband, and the tweets the device sends focus, however glibly, on the benefits of quitting, not the novelty of the device itself. I think of using those analytics as a cessation tool for people, rather than promoting smoking, says senior communications associate Martin Maisonpierre. It’s really understanding what your smoking habits are. You see, like, ‘Oh my god, every Thursday after a meeting I consume three cigarettes. Wow, that’s a stress point in my life.’ Being able to understand and track those things can be a benefit. Theres no doubt that adding a data layer to smoking habit could be an enormously beneficial quitting tool.

Chicagoans help on electronic cigarettes study

A German cancer institute reviewed research on e-cigarettes and said secondhand exposure may raise a child’s risk for asthma. Further, the German study said: “Adverse health effects for third parties exposed cannot be excluded because the use of electronic cigarettes leads to emission of fine and ultrafine inhalable liquid particles, nicotine and cancer-causing substances into indoor air.” As the devices are touted as an aid to quit smoking, U.S. cigarette makers are jumping into the market with flavors that include strawberry and pina colada. Meanwhile, the FDA is studying e-cigarette health effects and whether to regulate the devices as it regulates tobacco.

EU vote on electronic cigarettes ‘makes no sense’

Electronic Cigarettes Would be Restricted to Certain Pharmacies reports Saudi-un-ny.net

However, the revision of the EU ‘Tobacco Products Directive’ would classify most e-cigarettes as a medicinal product, despite the fact that in the UK alone 25 percent of all attempts to kick the habit are made using e-cigarettes, making them the most popular aid. The European Commission had proposed that e-cigarettes containing 4 milligrammes or more of nicotine must be classed as medicinal products but an EU parliamentary committee went further, voting to classify all e-cigarettes as pharmaceuticals, regardless of the nicotine content. Users of e-cigarettes (known as vapers) have protested, arguing that through e-cigarettes they were able to kick the tobacco habit. They say classifying them as medical devices will mean they must undergo a costly and protracted authorisation processes before marketing.

Its not as simple as saying people are substituting one addiction for another. In fact, Siegel said the quit-rate for e-cigarettes is comparable to rates in other nicotine-replacement therapy studies.

Were pleased to provide a user-friendly site that makes e-cigarettes available to anyone eighteen and older who smokes or dips, said Kenneth Frank, founder of Vapor Hale, LLC. These items are a great alternative to traditional tobacco products and can also help users finally kick their habit, he added. Electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) look similar to traditional cigarettes, but function differently. Nicotine is heated inside an electronic device that creates a smokeless vapor , which is then inhaled by the user. The nicotine-infused vapor is often flavored and free from the harmful tar, carbon monoxide and chemicals found in traditional cigarettes.

I hope that MEPs will vote this week to either remove e-cigarettes completely from the Tobacco Products Directive or that they will ask the Commission to go away and do a lot more research, fund some unbiased studies and come back in two or three years and report on the situation at that time. Policy makers will then have a lot more information at their fingertips to make a decision that is not going to result in 700,000 lives per year being terminated early because MEPs voted to effectively ban e-cigs as they currently are from the market in Europe.” The key health benefit of e-cigarettes is determined by how many smokers switch to them or use them as a staging post to quitting completely. It is therefore vital that e-cigarettes continue to be regulated as a consumer product. Ralf K an e-cigarette user from Germany said, “Many of us have tried numerous times to quit smoking using conventional nicotine replacement therapies and have failed, however with e-cigarettes we have all cut down our smoking or stopped completely. Without anyone in the professional public health field doing anything and without spending any public money, smokers like us have been quitting, switching, and cutting down through the use of e-cigarettes. This is something that should be celebrated not a cause for concern.” E-cigarettes are however not some form of more effective nicotine replacement therapy, they are totally different.

Media campaign messages could be extended to include “quit and switch”. E-cigarettes may need legislation, possibly through a private member’s bill. In Britain e-cigarette use is confined to smokers and ex-smokers, with near-zero use by non-smokers and young people. Some fear e-cigarettes would re-normalise tobacco smoking, but this looks unlikely with e-cigarettes this year starting to threaten US cigarette sales. Vaping is banned on airlines, and though legally permissible indoors, in- your-face vaping would be socially unacceptable.

MEPs voted in committee to treat e-cigarettes as medicines, reducing their availability compared to tobacco and putting big new costs on users. E-cigarettes work by vaporising nicotine that is then inhaled, providing nicotine addicts with their hit without many of the carcinogens and secondhand smoke produced by conventional cigarettes. Many smokers have instead become vapers and claim it has helped them become healthier. The issue will now be the subject of a vote by the full European Parliament in the autumn.
