E-Cigs Mail Online Article

E-Cigs Mail Online Article

Greeting to you all,

First I’d like to introduce myself. I am still quite new to vaping, having started using e-cigarettes only a few months ago.
Right at the beginning of my research on the subject I have discovered with great delight VTTV.
I have been watching the YouTube programs with great interest and enjoyment, whilst shyly dipping in and out of the forum. So, I take now the opportunity to say ‘thank you’, as I have found here some very useful information and been much impressed by its warmth and quality.

Now, regarding last night VT Talk and the heavily edited Mail Online article ..
I have found the article late at night and saved some notes of original piece on my computer. I now regret not copying the whole piece, these are only some parts.

On the original one, there were also some pictures; one of which showing an ego-like device being used by a man; another with several colorful e-cigarettes with the caption : “A shop owner displays his varied range of electronic cigarettes alongside different flavoured fluids which are used to create the vapour “

Unfortunately I was not able to find the page’s cache, I will try again later.

Warm regards


E-cigs 'are the safer option': New guidelines urge doctors to advise products for smokers finding it difficult to quit
• Devices provide a nicotine ‘hit’ to the user without the tar
• But there are fears they may pose a different health hazard
• Smokers now encouraged to cut down even if they can’t quit ‘in one step’
5 June 2013

... Electronic cigarettes are ‘better than smoking’, say public health experts behind new guidelines on reducing the harm caused by tobacco.
For the first time smokers are being encouraged to cut down even if they can’t quit ‘in one step’

… the guidance from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (Nice) says doctors seeking to help smokers can advise ‘these products are likely to be less harmful than cigarettes’.
Professor Paul Aveyard, a GP and one of the panel of experts which drew up the guidance, said he will tell patients that using e-cigarettes is ‘better than smoking’.

‘The safest thing is to use licensed nicotine replacement products - but a lot of people don’t want to use nicotine gum’ he added. ….

… People targeted by the advice includes those who may not be able to give up in one step, those who want to stop smoking without giving up nicotine and those who might not be ready to stop but want to reduce the amount they smoke.

Professor Mike Kelly, director of the Nice centre for Public Health, said the guidance endorses cutting down on smoking using licensed nicotine products to reduce the harm caused by tobacco.

He said ‘Put simply, people smoke for the nicotine but die because of the tar in tobacco.'

Thank you for the welcoming Sav Smile


I’ll try joining the live-chat as soon as my laptop will allow .. it’s throwing some tantrums at the moment.

Re Mail article, I have found the cached page @ ‘Internet Archive Way Back Machine’ - http://web-beta.archive.org/ - which holds older copies of webpages on record.
Just paste in the window the article’s address - http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/articl...-quit.html - and you will find the two snapshots for the 5th June.

Warm regards
