    I started vaping on 6 June so I was, I thought going to be eligible, however; I also got the "Thank you for your willingness to participate, however, we are looking for survey respondents who fit a different profile."

    I have a very keen interest in this study however I have to wonder what the good doctor is looking for........

    PS I'm a banker so I see deception everywhere I think its referred to as paranoia.

    Okay, that was kind of weird... not sure what it had to do with smoking... but it should be interesting to find out!

    I don't know, I answered the questions honestly (have not smoked for a long time now) and still made the grade.
    Not sure what the criterion is, but it isn't about still smoking, because I said I do not still smoke.

    I answered that I hadn't smoked in over 6 months, and it still accepted me. Hmmm. Interesting.

    I didn't know what to put for the question 'do you plan on quitting smoking in the next (can't remember- 2 weeks)?

    I tried to leave it blank as there was no N/A. I ended up answering no, since I can't plan on quitting something I don't do.

    I'm 36 white male, 6 months smoke free, accepted. After answering the questions and seeing the types of questions, it makes no sense as to why why some of you were rejected.

    Maybe they are getting to many people from the same age group. Could be the reason some are rejected and other are accepted.

    Looks like I was accepted. :?:
