Using the e-cigarette is like a gambler who wants to simply gamble less
by Dan Kimm CH
Does it really replace traditional smoking with a “safer” alternative?
Wonder where they grow the “Smokeless” tobacco? (Pun intended)
BLU e-cigarettes proudly state on their website:
AMERICAN MADE SMOKE JUICE~ “Smoke Juice? Do they squeeze it out of vine-ripened cigarettes?
Their promo video starring Stephen Dorff says in closing…
“We are all adults here…It’s time we take our freedom back”.
Freedom to do what…Slowly poison ourselves?
BLU ingredients for SMOKE JUICE include Distilled Water, Nicotine, Natural & Artificial Flavors, USP Glycerin, Citric Acid and Propylene glycol free.
According to the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR).
PROPYLENE GLYCOL-Is used in antifreeze!
Affected Organ Systems: Dermal (Skin), Renal (Urinary System or Kidneys), Respiratory (From the Nose to the Lungs).
So does that mean other brands actually USE Propylene Glycol?
I was actually asked by a local company last Spring to promote their e-cigarette as a safe way to quit smoking. I would have received a nice compensation, but do I really want to sell my soul for thousands of dollars? Add to the fact that this company also had “traces” of lead in its “Smoke Juice”.
As clinical hypnotists, we assist and guide our clients to a healthier alternative. Smokers smoke for a wide variety of reasons, most commonly to relax (kind of hard to believe a stimulant, nicotine, can help you relax), stay focused and lose weight.
With e-cigarettes, it is merely horizontally trading one habit or addiction for another.
I had a young woman who smoked a pack a day tell me she actually likes the e-cigarette better and SMOKED it more.
Another proudly told me she “Quit” smoking but really uses her e-cigarette with about the same frequency.
Research does not yet reveal the statistics if the brands that offer fewer quantities of nicotine sell more of the lower or zero quantities of nicotine.
Gums and patches are about 6-10% successful in helping someone be smoke-free. I believe that e-cigarettes fall into that same category. I am kind of curious when the tobacco lobbyist are going to speak out against e-cigarettes because they are already cutting into their billion dollars a year industry.
The gums and patches all pretty much have this disclaimer in small print….”Best results come with the use of Behavior Modification Therapy” errrr Hypnosis?
If you do not change your beliefs, you will NEVER alter your Behavior.
Using the e-cigarette is like a compulsive, addicted, habitual gambler who simply gamble less or the alcoholic that wants a drink “every now and then.”
Be like Hollywood star Matt Damon who finally used hypnosis to “Be an adult and take his freedom back and remain smoke-free. ”
