    I texted him the Seigel blog, he responded but didn't understand the 127char limit on SMS.

    I'd rather have someone else from Casaa talk to him, as I just want to shout "do you want me to get cancer and die".

    I too would be interested in a general IQ poll, however, I dropped out of college after 2 semesters because I found that just about everything I was being "taught" was either already obsolete or was going to be before I graduated. That and I found that I being autodidactic was a more efficient way to absorb what I needed to know. I do not have an advanced degree (I'm the only member of my family who doesn't have at least a BA/BS); however, I have an I.Q. above 140 and consider myself to be exceptionally well educated though not via traditional channels. I have found that individuals I introduce to electronic cigarettes are far more likely to enjoy and/or stick with it if they have what I would consider above average intelligence.

    Vapers don't keep consuming nicotine non-stop just because it's not portioned into cigarettes we can count. When you are no longer thirsty, you stop drinking water. When you no longer crave nicotine, you put down the e-cig. Duh.
    There are days, there are those stressful days, that I swear I vape like there's no tomorrow, but you're quite right. The fool in this article seems to believe that we are mindless sheep that will eat themselves to death given the opportunity.

I'm sure we're on the same side (nicotine is bad hether from an NRT or an e-cig but not as bad as smoking). I'm glad you texted me. Online can be so combative sometimes. I sent you a facebook friend request, too. :-)
    The 2nd text came though, so at least he concedes that a nicotine habit isn't as bad as smoking, he just won't say it in public.

    Dr.'s had a tougher time quitting than their patients did. Next time I feel like yelling 'stupid dr dont know his head from a hole in the ground!!!" .... chances are .... i'll be right.

    If you vape 5ml of e-juice containing 20mg/ml nicotine, that is the same amount of nicotine contained in 5-6 combustible cigarettes (avg ~1.63%). However, most of the nicotine in cigarettes is destroyed by combustion or lost to "sidestream" smoke, so one teaspoon (5ml) of smokefreE-liquid can replace one or more full packs of combustible cigarettes.
    Looking at it like this I would figure I vape no more then I smoked, as I'm at a 18mg average 2ml max a day, maybe 3ml when i first started. Started at a 24 and cut it back once I started on a DCT as it felt to strong with that setup. I was a min half pack to 3/4 pack a day smoker for 23 years.

    Compared to the "unknowns" in a cigarette- we vapors know a whole hell of a lot more. I go through 5~6 ml of 18mg/ml nicotine concentration a day...I know EXACTLY how much I get!
    Oh, and I know how many "unknown" chemicals I don't get- ZERO!! I KNOW that number too!!
    He's right. I vape 3ml per day at 24mg. However, I have absolutely no way to measure the hydrogen cyanide or Formaldehyde I was ingesting with my Winstons.

    Looking at this article a little closer, it appears he is ranting about the stupidity in an article reported in the Deseret News

    "Utah Health Official Touts Benefit of Tobacco Cigarettes Over E-Cigarettes: At Least You Know How Much Nicotine You're Getting
    According to an article in the Deseret News"

    He later goes on to say why their logic is ridiculous,

    "The Rest of the Story

    This story demonstrates how ridiculous the arguments of anti-smoking advocates have become in trying to attack electronic cigarettes. They are now actually defending the real ones in an effort to cast dispersions on the much safer electronic ones."

    What made me take a second look at this was the name of the poster "posted by Michael Siegel @ 8:05 AM"
