National Save Vaping Day



WHAT IS NATIONAL SAVE VAPING DAY? 

 On Monday, October 7th, we are asking vape shops, online retailers, distributors, manufacturers, and other entities that want to see vaping survive to donate some, or even all, of their profits for the day to the American Vaping Association (AVA) and the Consumer Advocates for Smoke-Free Alternatives Association (CASAA).

My Vaping Story


Why I Support Vaping


On August 7, 2015, my life was irrevocably changed.   On that morning I woke up unable to breathe, gasping for breath, and positive the end of my life was coming that day.  Two weeks prior to that date, there were noticeable changes that alerted me something was wrong.  I was beginning to aspirate food into my lungs every two or three days. I coughed any time I tried to talk. Those things combined into one visit to the hospital that would make me rethink my life completely.


When I arrived at the hospital I couldn’t breathe, think of a fish being out of the water and you’ll get an idea of what it felt like trying to get any air into my lungs.  My blood pressure was severely elevated, my chest felt like I was having a heart attack, and I knew unless something happened immediately, my life was over.


Let me backtrack a little so you can understand what led up to this moment.  Thirty years ago I became a smoker.  It started with just sneaking cigarettes, I was only sixteen at the time, to a full-blown habit where I was smoking a pack a day.  That escalated over the years to become a two-pack a day habit, where I couldn’t wake up in the morning without reaching for a cigarette to function.  Coffee, cigarette, and waking up were synonymous.


In February of 2001, I began working as a respiratory therapist.  I saw on a daily basis the devastating effects that smoking would take on my patients and desperately wanted to quit the habit. I attempted everything available during those days to stop.  Nicotine patches, hypnosis, nicotine gum, and then went so far as asking for a prescription medication to help me stop smoking.  None of this worked.  Of course, I tried cold turkey but I wasn’t one of those people that had the ability to give up a lifelong habit that way.  For me, I was stuck smoking, there was no hope for me to ever quit.


On that horrible day, August 7, 2015, I was resting in that hospital bed as a patient instead of the caregiver.  Some of the people taking care of me were former coworkers (I was laid off in 2008 due to cutbacks at the hospital).  Many of them still smoked themselves.  After breathing treatments, multiple tests, I was diagnosed with COPD.  No surprise to a person who’d worked in that field.  I was sent home with nicotine patches and knew from former experience my chances of succeeding were minimal.


As a mother of five children, allowing cigarettes to rob me of the opportunity to be a part of their life was unacceptable to me.  It was on that drive home from the hospital that I remembered seeing one of those strange electronic cigarette shops.  I’d bypassed that place a hundred times on my way to the grocery store and rolled my eyes.  Electronic cigarettes?  What a joke!  That was my thought. Suddenly, the thought wasn’t funny anymore.  What if that was the key to me giving up smoking? Wasn’t it worth a shot?


I remembered a friend on social media that talked about vaping and called her on my phone as I headed into the brick and mortar vape shop.  To say I had no idea what I was doing was an understatement, but she’d been doing this vaping thing for years.  I looked around this place, and okay, it reminded me of some of those crazy shops in Florida that stoners hung out at.  I’m sure you know the type of place I’m talking about.


They were blowing billowy clouds of vape and it took everything I had not to roll my eyes at the scene unfolding.  With my friend on the phone, I walked up to the counter and handed the woman behind the counter my cell.  This friend (who to this day I call my lifesaver), told the shop worker exactly what I needed.  


I pulled in a draw from that tank skeptically and my eyes widened.  This was pretty close to those cigarettes I’d been smoking for the last thirty years as far as flavor, and I walked out of that store feeling like I just might have a shot at quitting with this nifty little setup in my hand.

I threw those nicotine patches in a cabinet once I returned home, and continued using my new electronic cigarette device.  I had purchased a nicotine level in my liquid that was 18mg.  The first thing I noticed was I didn’t have a craving to light up another cigarette.  This vaporized steam gave me everything I needed.  The sensation of having something in my hand, the oral sensation of pulling the steam into my mouth while releasing what looked like smoke as I exhaled, and the relief that I didn’t have to pretend some nicotine patch on my arm was going to take away the life-long habit I had of doing all those things.


Over the next two weeks, I didn’t touch a real cigarette, even if I got a craving for one it was so minuscule it was easy to pick up my vaporizer (electronic cigarette) and put that need away.  In my opinion, those that try electronic cigarettes without adopting this method, have a harder time putting down real cigarettes for good.  Training your brain to see that electronic version as the real thing, in the beginning, is a huge plus.  For me, smoking was a habit and an addiction, both of those things had to be altered for me to make vaping work.


Things I noticed along the way that changed for the better.  After two weeks, I could lay in my bed at night without coughing, I no longer needed an inhaler for shortness of breath, and I could walk around my house without getting dizzy or tired.  My taste and smell improved significantly.  I can’t begin to explain how incredible it was to taste foods properly again.  Fast forward to July of 2017 and my lung capacity, according to the physicians Pulmonary Function Test, and my lungs are normal. This is a personal testimony of how vaping worked to save my lungs.

Now it's September 2019 and the government is trying to take away the life-saving technology that kept me out of an early grave. What I know as fact. Tobacco Cigarettes almost killed me, vaping saved my life. A black market illicit THC product is killing people, and our government, having these facts, mislead the American public making them believe nicotine vaping was responsible for those deaths. Every single day they are changing their story, and another THC illegal vape product is responsible for another death. The pharmaceutical smoking cessation drugs like Chantix are killing people, but they aren't attempting to ban that and have even tried to hide that evidence from the public.




For me vaping wasn't 95% safer than smoking, it was 100% safer. They can feed all the lies they want to the American public, but the truth is I am living a better life thanks to vaping. I find it very suspicious that they call inhaling THC into your lungs vaping because I don't vape pot. No one I know vapes pot. Our government is out of control, and they need to be stopped before they kill generations of smokers. Not only that, by misleading the public to make them think nicotine vaping is killing people, they've endangered people who are using black market THC products, because those people will assume it's okay to keep buying THC just not nicotine, which is ridiculous.

At a local football game a few weeks ago, I had a woman tell me, while she was puffing on a cigarette, that my vaping was killing people. Think about the irony of that for a minute. 450,000 die each year from smoking cigarettes, and now people think vaping nicotine is more dangerous? Our government is failing the people. The FDA, CDC, and HHS, have a lot to answer for, as well as the governors shutting down a life saving technologic advancement, forcing adults to go back to cigarettes. That's not even talking about the legal vape shops being forced out of business.


This is a dangerous precedent, and even our president isn't standing up for the people or business owners. Government overreach like this should be illegal. I could go off on a tangent about how they could misuse their power to ban anything they choose, but that's another issue. Vaping saved me, and millions of others just like me. As an adult, it is my choice to decide what smoking cessation product works for me, not the government.

Vaping Flavor Bans in Your State? HiggyCigs has you covered!




To help some of the people that may not YET be comfortable with full-blown DIY mixing. I wanted to put this out there. HiggyCigs has Pre-mixed nicotine vape juice blended. All you have to do is add your flavors (or a one-shot concentrate in) Higgy Cigs offers these unflavored eliquids in nicotine levels from 0.5-24 mg here Higgy Cigs  Base they also sell  one-shot flavor blends and you could add that in at a % to make this very easy for beginners.

Mixing by volume this way takes less than a minute!  The video below will show you how to mix by volume and weight.



If you want to mix by weight this is how you do that.  After buying the Pre-made mix and your flavor shot, open the eliquid Recipes calculator Click For The Calculator Here to mix up your DIY and follow the example of that recipe (the one-shot will tell you how much percentage of one-shot they recommend in this example it is 15%) 

On the amount, this is where you’ll choose your bottle size, this matters a great deal.  Since you are using a base that already has nicotine, pg and vg, you need to MAKE sure the Desired Strength, Desire Pg, Desired VG and the Nicotine Strength, they should all read 0 (zero).  Depending on how you ordered your base, on the PG content of nicotine and VG content of Nicotine is where you put that information.  The only other thing you add is the name of the flavor concentrate and the % you are using of that flavor.


Shake well and vape, although some One Shot flavors may require a few days of steeping (letting it sit)  I really hope this helps those that aren’t ready to take a huge step into DIY but want to try it out and make delicious eliquid.

Communist Takeover of America


Michelle Hughes
09/25/2019

When governors can decide for entire states what rights are available to adults, without a single voter having a voice, Communism has taken over.  We can no longer call ourselves the "Land of the Free" when dictators in office have the ability to decide for American adults what is best for them.  If you think this stops with a vaping ban, you are deluding yourself into a false sense of security.  The vaping issue may not matter to you, but what will you say when they come for your guns, your alcoholic beverages, your soda, your meat, and whatever else they can claim isn't good for children.  If you can't see this, then you are not paying attention to the world around you.  American's should be up in arms over the rights of adults being destroyed, small businesses being destroyed, and people being deprived of the right to make an adult choice.

We are standing on a precipice that could end in disaster for the America we love.  If you refuse to stand for the rights of adults to make a choice, you are in fact handing over our country to a communist government.  Look back in history at prohibition and remember where that led us.  10,000 people were poisoned during alcohol prohibition in the early 1900s.  While I'm not ready to say our government is doing this today, yet, it does set off certain warning bells.  The vaping industry has not had a single death since it popularity ten years ago, but suddenly all of these people are dying or getting ill?  When something doesn't sound right, it usually isn't.

What we have are facts,  Alcohol and cigarettes kill hundreds of thousands of people each year and they are still choices that adults can make (for now).  The FDA, CDC, and HHS have yet to show any conclusive proof that vaping nicotine products has caused a single death.  They have validated that illegal black market THC (pot) products that people have vaped, have been responsible for illnesses and deaths.  So their knowledge is that illegal products are the only "known" cause for illness, but they decide to ban regulated FDA nicotine products?  Where does that leave the adults who choose to vape?  Turning to the same black market that is causing illness and death.  If there is some sanity in that, please feel free to explain it, because I personally don't see it.

I could give you a dozen conspiracy theories (perhaps one that isn't a conspiracy at all states are losing tobacco revenue money when people vape) but that's not the point of this article.  The government has taken it upon themselves to decide what adults are allowed to do.  If you take nothing else away from this, understand that.  Ask yourself if you want to be on the right side of history.  Supporting adults in their right to choose for themselves.  Or allowing a corrupt government to make decisions for their state based on their opinions.  Unless we want a communist takeover of America, it is time to let your voice be heard.

Freedom. Banning Adult Products Is Not The American Way!


Banning adult products because children have used them is the most idiotic thing I've ever heard.  Alcohol, cigarettes, could be next.  Your gun rights after that.  This is a dangerous slope we're sliding down and the brakes need to be put on immediately.  Let's start with facts.  Not one single death or illness has scientifically been linked to vaping nicotine products.  Not one.  Let that sink in, because the doom and gloom we are hearing from the media is that nine people have died.  Nine people probably have died, but they have not tied one of those cases to nicotine vaping.  Period.  That story ends there.  What they THINK happened to those people, was they were using illegal, black market, THC product (you know bought off a street corner) that contained some form of Vitamin E Acetate (and oil that would NEVER be used in a regulated vaping nicotine product).

I'll let the experts talk to you about what they believe the real reason is behind this vaping flavor ban, and believe me it has nothing to do with "saving children" and everything to do with money. You can read that here: MSA And Fake Vaping Epidemic  I want to share a different message here.  If an adult chooses to use vaping as their smoking cessation choice and it includes flavors, then no person in the government has the right to infringe on that choice.  Period.  End of story. 


As an American adult, I expect my freedom to do things I choose and decide what not to do of my own free will.  That could be choosing to own a firearm or not, flying my flag, vaping what I choose, praying to my God, drinking an alcoholic beverage if that's what I want.  I will not allow the government to infringe on my rights as an adult because children have broken the law.  Using children has been a political "go-to" anytime they couldn't use something else to work, and enough is enough.  It is NOT the government's place to raise children.  That old saying if you don't raise your children the prison system will, that's about as accurate as it can get.  Fine the parents, fine the adult that bought adult products the same way we do with smoking cigarettes and alcohol, but don't you dare tell me you're going to take away my adult right to vape flavors if I choose to do so.

If you need to think about children, think about the 480,000 adults who die from smoking every single year in the United States and how many of their parents will die tomorrow because an adult right was taken away from them.  An estimated 1,300 adults die every single day in this country from smoking cigarettes.  For the government to step in on vaping with those death tolls of tobacco already being proven true, you have to ask yourself why they are stepping on vaping and not smoking. Follow the money on that one.  But you know what, if an adult chooses to smoke, that's their right too! 

Basically, this comes down to the freedom of adults to make their own choices.  If you don't stand up against this banning of vaping or vaping flavors, then when your gun, your bible, your beer, and any other freedom comes up in the question of a ban, then remember you sat down and did nothing while adults were losing the freedom of choice.  One day the thing banned might be something you enjoy.

Big Tobacco and Big Pharma the Biggest Swamps of All. They Need Draining!


I have never in my life seen more corruption than we are seeing with Tobacco and Pharma than I am right now.  I don't care what your stance is on the vaping ban, anyone in good conscious should look at this and say the corruption on this issue MUST BE STOPPED.  Vaping stepped in years ago to take care of the problem big tobacco started.  And now the pharmaceutical industry wants to take over the vaping industry.  I couldn't write a better book than this, but sadly it's not fiction!

If you're not aware of what the Tobacco Master Settlement is, there's not enough room on this post to explain it to you, so I encourage you to read about it HERE and also see how our government sold out vaping so your state gets a huge payday when you smoke cigarettes.  Basically, they are paying your state to kill you.  That's not an overdramatization when 450,000 American's die each year from smoking cigarettes.

But it doesn't end there!  Now they want the pharmaceutical companies to take over vaping when they didn't come up with an idea to save smokers from dying.  You can read about that here: Washington Post.  The gist of that is they want to hand over vaping to these medical companies so you can only get it via a prescription.

Keep in mind that vaping was created to help smokers get away from cigarettes and failed nicotine replacements, and then ask yourself this.  Why do they have any right to take over the innovations that people came up with when they failed miserably in protecting public health?  Seriously.  This is corruption at the deepest level and it reads like some bad movie that needs the script changed!!

Let's dig deeper.  Black Market ILLEGAL THC products are killing people.  They are calling that vaping, when the majority of the public considers "vaping" having to do with a nicotine eliquid, not illegal drugs (or legal pot if your state allows it).  There has not been one documented case of a person dying from regular vaping (the stuff you'd buy at a normal vape shop) but here comes a huge outcry of people dying and we must ban flavors immediately.  Are you kidding me?  Flavors had nothing to do with people dying, neither did vaping!  Black market vendors selling tainted pot did, and still, the majority of mainstream media isn't reporting that!  USA Today has been one of the few reporting the truth on this issue: https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/health/2019/08/28/critics-cdc-silent-vaping-thc-injuries-mount/2121523001/

Ask yourself why after these lies were told to the public almost immediately states like Michigan and New York started a ban?  There was no ethical reason to ask for one since nicotine vaping wasn't the culprit.  No, this is corruption that goes so deep it needs to be flushed out and the people responsible for deceiving the American public should be held accountable!  Research for yourself.  Like I said, even if you HATE vaping, no one should stand by while they destroy an entire industry over lies and slander!

Save Vaping From The Black Market



A week ago a flood of so-called "vaping" illnesses began flooding the news channels after years of safe, harm-reduction positive influence.  So-called "Vaping" because American's who vape don't consider inhaling THC (pot) to fit the label.  The FDA, and CDC have both come forward saying that it appears that people buying black market THC products from illegal vendors are the culprits behind these new illnesses.  Read that again for clarity, illegal THC products not the type you would buy from a vape shop. 

Within a day of these illnesses coming to light, a witch hunt was set out against vaping, with the governor banning flavors in Michigan, the FDA and CDC telling people, not to vape, and even our President talking about a ban on flavors.  Now NY's Cuomo jumping on board as well and Kaine from Virginia as well.  The fact is flavors had nothing to do with these illnesses, neither did normal nicotine eliquids bought in vape shops around the country.  To iterate, not ONE single illness or death has been proven to come from legal vaping products

All this information is valid because it leads up to what will be the greatest public health crisis of our time if we don't demand that our government stands back and listens to the "valid" information I'm about to present.  13 million adults in the United States use vaping products to abstain from smoking cigarettes.  The majority of these adults also use flavored products.  Our history proves that prohibition has NEVER worked, and in fact can become deadly.  All you have to do is research the alcohol prohibition in the 1920s and see exactly where this is leading.  Adults will not stop using a product that is working for them to save their lives, or if it's something they enjoy doing and the government tries to suppress it.  It's already been proven.

We know for a fact now, black market THC products laced with vitamin E acetate, is the most-likely culprit of the new illnesses.  What do you think adults will turn to if they can't get these products legally from their vape shops?  They will do the same thing adults did during the alcohol prohibition and turn to the black market for their product.  That is the exact thing that caused the death of those people and if we follow this course you'll be opening up 13 million more adults to the same type of black market vending.  It will be a public health nightmare. 

The last thing we want to see happen in millions of adults (or even teenagers who will go against the law anyway since they are already obtaining this product illegally in the first place) dying in the street because our government tried a failed method of prohibition once again.  There are solutions that can work to keep teenagers away from adult products, it's called enforcing the law already on the books.  Let's be honest, flavored alcohol is on the shelves today and it's the same scenario but a public ban isn't happening because we remember what happened during prohibition the last time it was tried.



Banning has never worked with teenagers, the only recourse is STRICT law enforcement, and making parents, or any adult buying or selling adult products for children pay the price with jail time using the same exact response for alcohol sales and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.  This could be a crisis of epic proportions if we don't put a stop to it now.  Millions of people dying on the street from purchases of black market vaping products is not the road we want to travel down.  This time I hope you do think of the children, because millions of them without parents would be much worse than cracking down on those breaking the law.

Say NO to the Flavor Ban for E-cigarettes



I don't care what your political affiliation is today, as adults who vape, we are all on the same side.  It's imperative that you call the White House today and tell President Trump that we are against the banning of flavors in vaping products.  Call (202) 456-1111 and if you can't get through, continue trying until you can.  Adults have the right to choose their smoking cessation tool and the government has no right to deny us that right.  After you call, write the White House as well here: https://www.whitehouse.gov/contact/  we need to send a strong message to Washington that we oppose this flavor ban.

The facts so far as I know them at the moment are thus.  Black Market vendors (not legal shops that sell nicotine vaping products) were selling products containing tetrahydrocannabinol (THC, a psychoactive component of the marijuana plant).  While they are calling this vaping, the only truth in that is that people were using devices meant for vaping to do illegal (of if THC is legal in your area, legal) drugs.  That has zero to do with flavors so this ban has no merit, and for the vast majority of us that vape without using illegal (or legal in your area) drugs no merit whatsoever.  The following is from the FDA website:


  • Many of the samples tested by states or by the FDA as part of this ongoing investigation have been identified as vaping products containing THC, and further, most of those samples with THC tested also contained significant amounts of vitamin E acetate.
  • Vitamin E acetate is a substance present in topical consumer products or dietary supplements, but data are limited about its effects after inhalation.
  • While the FDA does not have enough data presently to conclude that vitamin E acetate is the cause of the lung illness in these cases, the agency believes it is prudent to avoid inhaling this substance.
I have vaped exclusively since 2015 after a COPD diagnosis, and have only had positive results since I stopped smoking.  I find this a GROSS OVERREACH of power and will fight until my dying breath to make sure this ban doesn't happen.

Excerpt

The female jumped onto the transport pad and the Prillon captain positioned himself between her and the corridor in a protective stance, not just that of a warrior protecting a helpless female. There was too much knowledge in his eyes. Respect.
Who was she? I.C.? I didn’t know any fighters with command codes. Unless she was just the victim of an accident and a transport tech had accidentally sent her to the wrong place.
Yeah, no. She was too intelligent, too quick and keen for something as ridiculous as that. And if something that random had brought her to me, that transport tech was most likely headed for a Coalition brig.
I felt the vibrations, heard the hum.
“Everyone ready?” she asked, glancing up at the six of us on the transport pad. It had been about a minute since the prisoners arrived, and they were being sent right back out of here. They were lucky.
So fucking lucky. The Atlan who was dead weight at their feet, too.
“Fuck, yes,” I said. The others shouted and growled their agreement. They’d been defeated, but their fight was back. We were getting the fuck out of here.
I heard the pounding of feet with my Hunter senses. “Incoming,” I said.
She nodded, either she believed me or could hear them, too. It wasn’t time to wonder which.
“Five seconds,” she said. 
I moved with speed to stand beside her. I tipped up her chin so she’d look at me. Made her take one of those five seconds to focus on me.
“Who are you?” I asked. The hairs on my body stood on end from the impending transport.
Three seconds.
Two seconds. The team of Hive ran into the room. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw their weapons raised. The other warriors fired at them, but I ignored it all. I could only see her. See the female who’d saved my life. The lives of six warriors.
“I’m your mate.”
One second.
And we were gone. Transporting out of the Hive hell and to safety. With my…
Mate.

We Will Never Forget - 9/11/2001



This is how the world woke up on September 11, 2001.  I remember this vividly in my mind.  I'd just gotten home from working night shift at my hospital, and was trying to wind down before going to bed.  I saw the first report break into the morning news, and thought it was a hoax.  Nothing like this could happen in this beautiful country that I loved.  When the horror set in that this was real, my first thought was my children.  I lived in Alabama but I feared that the entire world was going to war so went to immediately get my children from school.  In changed my thoughts forever about the world I lived in.
