The CDC have had to admit that e-cigarettes are now the number one tool used to transition away from smoking.
Though as they say say this, they are somewhat choking on it and throwing every caveat they can find at it, e.g “There is no conclusive scientific evidence that e-cigarettes are effective for long-term cessation of cigarette smoking. E-cigarettes are not approved by the FDA as a smoking cessation aid.”
“We found that most smokers who are switching to e-cigarettes or ‘mild’ cigarettes are not switching completely. These smokers are not stopping their cigarette smoking.”
Naughty vapers, still not doing it the ‘right way’.
And the favorite: The CDC said FDA-approved medications “have helped smokers to quit, in many instances doubling the likelihood of success.” Ah yes, but they forget to add that after a year, that success rate is less than 9%.
Plus, they still want more research funding to consider the possibility that vaping might just be helping millions worldwide to move away from tobacco.
It’s strange isn’t it, that despite the smear campaigns against e cigarettes, e cigs are now the most popular tool.
Why would that be?
Why would people that have been told ‘don’t touch them with a 10ft pole’, try e cigs, and realize, um, yes, actually, they do help you get away from tobacco?
Could it be that this is their function; to give you a choice, an option to move away from the burning stuff?
Could it be that they do what they say they do, and, that what the Industry has been saying for years, (and thriving for years), is because they do help people to move away from tobacco, and this is the truth?
An example from this comments section about the CDC’s findings proves this point. We all know this story, because we are all the living proof of it.
“I tried the patch multiple times, the gum, lozenge, none of them worked for me. My habit was more than just the nicotine. It is the hand to mouth, the inhaling of smoke, etc. The FDA approved cessation method don’t help in this department. I don’t vape nicotine anymore, but I cannot get past the act of smoking.”
This person no longer inhales burning tobacco, or nicotine. However, this person still vapes. In the eyes of the CDC, is this person still bad? Do they still need ‘intervention’? Or are they now a non-smoker, despite still mimicking the act?
And how much more research needs to be shovelled into the faces of the CDC and their ilk before they realise that vaping works, and they can jump the cognitive dissonance gap?
