  1. Current thoughts

    by , 08-21-2011 at 11:44 AM
    The following is from a forum post I made recently. I've been involved for some time with the "Whole Tobacco Alkaloid" concept, and when reading back through my blog, I find I've spoken with a certainty that's probably misplaced... or at least overly-confident. We think we know a lot of things, we convince ourselves of this, but what do we really know about vaping when it doesn't yet have a long-term history?

    In context, the comments below represent my current thinking, ...

  2. A Caution about Modeling Analog Addiction

    by , 06-02-2011 at 09:19 PM
    .
    Some time ago, I created a model where I theorized two things:

    1. Some folks have a high predisposition to nicotine addition and others a low predisposition.

    2. Some folks have a high predisposition to tobacco MAOI addiction and others a low predisposition.

    Another way to put this is to suggest that some folks who smoke do it because the nicotine calms them, and others smoke because the non-nicotine MAOI's calms them.

    I then crossed these ...

  3. Self-Indulgent Rambling...

    by , 01-09-2011 at 09:28 AM
    I was making up a personal WTA batch this weekend, and I got thinking about about my blog entries over the past year and a half or so, and I got inclined to give them a re-read.

    I don't know if I fully agree with everything I've had to say (well, actually, I don't), but overall, I'm not too embarrassed by anything I've posted. I think my tendency toward looking for precision made it's way into a good number of my entries, though I'm not so caught up these days with the idea of trying ...

  4. Vaping and Exercise - Latest Observation

    by , 07-15-2010 at 06:01 AM
    I've generally noted that vaping doesn't seem to harm my capacity for exercise, but today I noted something that's worth attention.

    I was biking up a closed road, starting at an elevation of 1000 feet, the hill rose steadily to 1800 feet by mile 2.7, about a 5.5 percent grade. Having vaped heavily in my car along the way to this closed road, I found that my lungs were not up to the deep breathing necessary for the chore. They were very shallow and tight. I then spent 2 miles on relatively ...

  5. Soaking tobacco for nicotine and flavor - A chemists' perspective

    by , 06-27-2010 at 06:37 PM
    Here's a topic I've addressed a number of times in various threads, but I thought I might discuss it here.

    What can one expect from soaking tobacco in various solvents (alcohol, PG, VG) to get some real tobacco flavor and/or nicotine?

    As far as getting flavor, that's a pretty easy question. If you soak and get a result that you like (either as a liquid in itself or as a flavor additive to regular eliquid) and you don't mind the extra wear and tear on your attys, you've ...
