    Quote from All The Juices:

    "Smokefree.gov has a ‘Story Map’ up on their site, it’s a great little piece that allows anyone in the world to click an area on the map and share their quit story to help inspire others, lovely stuff.

    You might think it’s odd that I’m mentioning this, especially taking into account Smokefree’s stance againt ecigs (which goes so far as directly recommending no-one tries them), but it’s heart warning to click through the markers that are already up and read (wait for it) story after story written by vapers that have switched from cigarettes and have a better life for it.
    Here’s hoping that someone at Smoke Free is actually reading what’s going up, and maybe starts to question the whole “we don’t know if it works” line they keep peddling."

    Dang ... URL doesn't work for me. Of course ... I'm in China, so it's probably understandable why it doesn't work.

    Looks like most of the e-cig stories have been deleted.

    Well I entered my info but it looks like all of the stories mentioning vaping are gone.
    Mine probably won't stay up either.

    OMG, there are so many deleted testimonies! They left about 3 up, either they missed them or they want to give an appearance that only a small percentage sopped smoking via eCigs. Grrrr.
    We need to make a map of our own. How do we do that?

    Finally got the site to open. I notice there is no "contact us" button to ask where all those stories went ... I wonder why ... Naw, it couldn't be ... could it? I think you may be onto something there Uma!

    .gov ... I believe it is government ... totally dishonest and probably funded by BT :glare:

    Simple solution, write up "your story" and save it in Notepad or other text editor, then everyday just before you go to login to ECF just copy and paste it back onto the map....:evil:

    If you can't beat 'em, drive 'em crazy....:laugh:

    I bet its a full time job for whoever is deleting the vaping stories. I wish they would compile a vaping vs. NRT for effectiveness based on THIER Own Data; and then I wonder if he will still believe this segment from their webiste
    "E-cigs haven’t been shown to be effective
    There haven’t been any scientific studies that prove e-cigs actually help people to quit smoking. There is also concern that using e-cigs may lead kids to start smoking regular cigarettes."

    As Carl pointed out, they are deleting the very evidence that they claim doesn't exist.

    NCI lies about the effectiveness of e-cigarettes, via deletion and explicitly | Anti-THR Lies and related topics
