  1. Whole Tobacco Alkaloid E-liquid

    by , 11-26-2009 at 10:18 PM
    I'm not content with theory, never have been, never will be. I prefer practice. Theory is suggesting possible answers to questions, practice is testing the theories and either proving or disproving them.

    E-liquid, in the traditional sense (if indeed vaping is long-established enough to have "traditions"), is essentially a mixture of propylene glycol and nicotine, with possibly VG and flavoring added.

    Whole tobacco alkaloid e-liquid is different. It does not ...

  2. I'm done being stealthy.

    by , 01-13-2010 at 04:56 AM
    I realized something today, I have been so caught up in the smoker mentality that I have not been forward enough and taking enough chances to demonstrate the vaping experience.

    Sneaking around, trying to not offend anyone, thinking that if we are quiet and secretive that we may get a few more months or years out of this before the FDA shuts us down for good is nothing but a mindset that is going to ruin everything for us.

    Those days and that kind of thinking is over for ...

    CNN.com has reported that Dr. Thomas Eissenberg at Virginia Commonwealth University's Institute for Drug and Alcohol Studies has completed a study on e-cigarette nicotine delivery. A quote attributed to Dr. Eissenberg by CNN.com states that,

    "They are as effective at nicotine delivery as puffing on an unlit cigarette."

    I'm posting tonight to offer my criticism of his study insofar as I understand it via the CNN.com story and the study design as described ...

  4. Spreading the Joy of Vaping

    by , 02-23-2010 at 01:50 AM
    I was at work today, only one guy there doing laundry, so I stopped for a vape break. I asked if he knew what an electronic cigarette is, but he had never seen one before. He saw me blowing out smoke but couldn't smell anything so he knew it wasn't a cigarette. I explained what it is and how it helped me quit smoking, and he thought it was a great idea and will recommend it to a few people.

    Then after work I stopped by the new coffee shop by my work, asked the owner of I could use my ...

  5. A very interesting study from way back

    by , 04-18-2010 at 07:29 AM
    (The following is a post I made to the forums that I think is quite interesting, so I've reproduced it here).

    This study from 1976 monitors plasma nicotine between 9 AM and 4 PM. It compares smoking a cigarette hourly with chewing a 4 mg piece of nicotine gum hourly (back then, nicotine gum was not yet approved but it was the same principle used currently...nicotine bound to an ion exchange resin with a buffer).

    The second page (page 1044 of the journal) shows a ...
