Did you catch what she recommended instead of e-cigarettes? Clue: It was not a tobacco product.

Chistina Gratiziou earlier completed a study of the effectiveness of Chantix as a quitting aid. That study was funded by Pfizer, the makers of Chantix. "G and PAP declare that they have no financial competing interests. KG declares a financial competing interest from the research committee of the University of Thessaly. GS, MM and RS declare financial competing interests as employees of and stock holders of Pfizer, the study sponsor. No authors declare a non-financial competing interest."

Chantix has been given a black box warning and is held responsible for thousands of suicide, suicide ideation, and other extremely frightening side effects; yet that study concludes that Chantix is a great way to quit smoking. Conversely, this same scientist with financial ties to Pfizer, concludes that electronic cigarettes are NOT a safe way to quit smoking. Since there have been no reported harmful side effects of using electronic cigarettes, despite millions of people using them, there should be a giant RED FLAG for this study. It is all about the money, and e cigarettes are a major danger to the profits of companies that directly compete for the quit smoking industry. Is it hypocritical for a scientist who supports Chantix despite its obvious dangers to then declare e cigarettes with no known side effects unsafe? OR, is it profitable for not only Pfizer but also for the scientists who rely on their funding to declare one product safe and the other unsafe?
Chantix is a great way to quit smoking if you can deal with the CRAZY dreams and desires to kill your spouse/co-workers! I took it and daaamn the stuff it did to me....
It to me should be obvious that vaping is NOT healthy for you, you are breathing in stuff that wasn't designed to be inhaled into your lungs. That being said it has to be considerably better for you than smoking is.
It is an educated risk I am willing to take to Vape over smoke, I enjoy not smelling like an ashtray and hopefully one day breathing better. I get annoyed when anyone trys to tell me they are impartial when they obviously are not. Please don't take me for your fool.
I can't see my signature but it should say I have saved about $250 vaping over smoking, 75% of that is taxes don't for a moment think that your government and mine has not noticed that. Repercussions will come someday and sooner rather than later I believe. Democrat or Republican they all want your life blood (money).
I don't smoke anymore I Vape. I'm happy. I don't care what anyone says. I feel good. I'm all in.
Sounds like Bull from the vid!

This reminds me of the Documentary..."who killed the Electric car"....in that they show how USA government made policies that would suppress and to a level eradicate the sale of electric car under the pressures from OIL companies... see any similarities in the case of electronic cigarettes as well...no?
I had Nicorette and in the next few days i was diagnosed a skin disease called Lichen Planus in mouth and skin on legs...Lichen Planus which has no definite cure...and at least takes 18 months to cure with recomended medicine(nothing definite) and i still have the disease... I did nothing unusual than routine before i was diagnosed with Lichen Planus...except taking 2 to 3 chewing gums of Nicorette of 4mg...
I continued smoking and i also had the recommended tablets for Lichen Planus given by the Doc and also applied the cream and the burning sensation on my skin and inside of cheeks was there as i never connected the severity of burning sensation and rashes with smoking... A few days back i quit smoking and started vaping and you wouldnt believe...in within 5-6 days of not smoking and just vapping...the rashes were almost gone and the burning in the mouth was gone...everything started healing...even my mental health knowing that Lichen Planus is healing faster...
so say what you wanna say u half brained "Professor Christine whatever"...Vapping has helped me a lot...and i will not quit it...
Seriously... Welcome to vaping, glad it's working for you. Wishing you the best in getting over the Lichen Planus affliction.
