    Tip of the iceberg? Maybe some others who have been keeping their heads down due to BP and the alphabet groups will come out of hiding now. For once I can agree with something started on the left coast.

    :D

    This is great! I love the "amateur opinions" line.

    In light of the recent push to ban e cigs on college campuses nationwide this is indeed a breath of fresh air. Lets hope it spreads quickly, is aggressively promoted by these professionals and has a powerful impact on the current thinking promoted ceaselessly and ingenuously by the paid shills of the pharmaceutical houses.

    So in short, this means that addiction counselors will be openly advocating e-cigs for those looking to quit smoking?

    It's also good that it comes from the heart of ANTZ scientific propaganda, California. Unfortunately, I'm willing to bet U Cal, SF is not one of the CAADE universities.

    I think it means that some of them will be encouraged to do so.

    What percentage "some" comprises is an open question.
    As is what percentage of that "some" will actually do so.

    This is an excellent step. Is there a link directly to the endorsement? I'd like to post it in the vaping section of my site.

    Thank you for all your work!

    Right. But the list is fairly impressive nevertheless, and includes parts of Nevada and Arizona.

    Hmmm... very interesting. That list includes the Navy's drug and alcohol counselor training program. Maybe it will gain us a foot in the door to the military?

    That would truly be wonderful.

    I think it is too easy for civilian companies to just write off an employee that becomes dysfunctional when he or she quits smoking (even if the employer made smoking / tobacco cessation a condition for employment). They like to pretend that everyone feels wonderful upon quitting (other than maybe a day or two of discomfort). And if months have gone by and the employee is still under-performing... well there are loads of people looking for work. If they accepted the fact that cessation causes dysfunction for a good percentage of smokers, then they would have to take responsibility for their part in insisting on total abstinence.

    The military, on the other hand, does its best to hang onto good employees. It is probably most obvious to ship captains that insisting on 100% abstinence results in a crew that is not performing as it should.

    Hey Elaine- I have book marked that page- I hope that they post your reply!!
    Amazing how close minded some people are....I'm sure your response will show the evidence this guy touted as non-existent.
    Love how they also always ask if we are connected to the industry- well, yes! We use the products and our lives are also proof!
