    Default The most ridiculous comment on the FDA deeming

    Some "Anonymous" "Health educator", "certified" to "teach smoking cessation" apparently cannot tell the difference between FDA and EPA, not once, but 3 times in his/her 4-line comment. This is the level of literacy among the base of our opposition.

    PS: is that enough quotes and to convey my exact feelings on this comment?

What my students don't realize is, that it doesn't matter how they receive their nicotine, it's still very habit forming and very difficult to recover that kind of addition. So, I say carry on EPA for the sake of my students and all the young people who believe that the E cigarettes don't hurt you and we need the EPA to regulate these products and demonstrate the harmful evidence to the public!

    And that's tobbacco - spelled with two bb's. More than once even.

    I was never good at math, but I do believe I recovered from my addition.

    Yup, our youth sure do need more educators of that caliber. (I don't know whether to laugh or cry.)

    I'm starting to suspect s/he might be associated with Orange County Dept. of Education.

    Dunno. I was thinking more along the lines of "troll." You can only be that wrong on purpose.

    Well I've got a PHD then. I'm also 'certified' in spell check too.

    Hahahahaha Nice "educator" indeed

    And yeah...

    As a Health Educator and someone certified to teach smoking cessation
    = conflict of interest. Pure and simple. People who use e-cigs do not go and spend good money on some "education". Especially not on some "education" from somebody who is obviously in dire need of some education themselves

    We had this in Germany, one letter to the editor screamed about the oh-so-horrible dangers of e-cigs. From some doctor blabla, "Lung Specialist". - Yeah, a quick Google search found that the good doctor gives smoking cessation classes, at 200 Euro a pop. (1 Euro = 1.36 US$). No wonder the good doctor screamed about the oh-so-horrible dangers of his competition.

    Just how does one become "certified to teach smoking cessation"? Can I buy that degree on-line? Do I just make a big donation to the American Cancer Society? Do you receive a BS in Cessation (yeah - I said a BS) from Smith-Kline University?

    I have a friend who is "certified". All the hotlines and quit smoking phone numbers go to "certified" (who knows what they are called) "counselors" for smokers who want to quit. She is one of these that quit smoking 20+ years ago and firmly believes because she "just did it" then anyone should be able to. The program looks for ex-smokers and I think it drills that into their heads.

    There is a standard packet of quit smoking "advice" that's changed little in over 30 years. It's ironic how little the stats make a difference when it comes to a program that clearly doesn't work. Somehow they inflate the pathetic numbers to make it sound so much better than the actual results - sometimes in the fine print, most often not. It doesn't matter how many times a person has tried or what it's doing to them (Chantix).

    Some people just can't quit. There's been a number of times I've thought about getting one of those packets that are sent out in order to tear it apart. I know a standard suggestion is to change brands before the actual quit date so that the smoker is not addicted to the taste of their brand as well. Kind of like "flavors".
