    I'm not sure where to post this, so I'm putting it here.

    There is a cigarette survey here:

    https://redcap.ctsi.psu.edu/redcap/surveys/?s=v94cbA

    I'm about to take it.

    edit: I just took it. I think we all should, since they ask for a lot of info about what we like to use, and how it helps us to quit smoking.

    I took it as well. It asks far better questions than most surveys that I have seen.

    Nice find, I hope many people can help these guys do a study. All I seem to hear about the rest of the science about vaping is "well those studies were done by the e-cig companies so we can't trust them." It's great to see some legit research science, even if it is just a survey.

    LOL. I had trouble with that question as well. He calls a "TIME" 15 puffs or about 10 minutes. I take about 2-4 puffs at a time, then put it down for awhile, sometimes for just a few seconds or minutes, but often up to 30 minutes or more. Very difficult to calculate. He is assuming we're using it exactly like we used cigarettes I suppose. I explained it to him :)

    I did too! I said it was different than smoking. Take a puff, set it down go do something, pick it back up take a couple of puffs.

    I too had a hard time with that one. I put 48 since the suggestion said something about a smoke lasting 10 minutes. I figured 4 times an hour, times a 12 hour day. 4x12=48 :D

    All in all a very well written survey.

    yeah that was a laugh; they actually must have been told there was something wrong with that question because they went further to suggest use 15 puffs as 1 time or use 10 minutes as 1 time.

    I put 111 as my answer.

    I put 32. I tried to do the math in my head, which is usually my strong point, but when I tried to convert 15 instances of use equals one usage divided by the number of hours I am awake and vaping times the numbers of hours in a day...........You get my point. I have never really counted nor do expect to start. :)

    AHA!!!!

    After a string of questions that contained false assumptions, finally a question that actually makes sense:

    Unfortunately, only available answers are yes, no, and don't know.

    So I picked don't know; they don't have 'not yet' as an answer; and I think the average person would not consider my mini-vv-passthroughs as 'mods'

    I had a problem with that too. In one of the later boxes about how my usage varied from cigarettes, I mentioned that I didn't vape for 10 minutes at a time, I just reach for it every now and then when I feel like it.

    I tried putting 200 but the highest default was 150.....so I went with that. Hey! I'm retired and don't have much to do most days :laugh: It's possible.....;)

    I did the same thing. :)
