The cringeworthyness of being cold

Dang! I'm cold.

Our central heating is collapsing. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. We are used to living in a warm and cosy house. So the shock of being cold in it is emotionally distressing. The worst part is that neither my husband nor the central heating man can figure out what is wrong with it.

So my thoughts are going to the subject of the cringeworthyness of being cold.

One of the first problems with not living in a warm ambient air temperature is the extra energy you expend in trying to keep warm. Currently, I have a hot water bottle on my lap. A blanket over my legs and several jerseys on. This is all very heavy. To do a simply action like going to the loo, you have to remove all the stuff, and then replace it again. Fiddle faddle.

It is a wonderful sunny day - but I'm not going out there today - the hills are covered with snow and I seem to be  sensitive to feeling cold enough and it will be bloody freezing out there. I'm having enough of it inside.

Which brings me to our fire. We have a lovely little gas fire in the lounge with fake coals. You know the kind? The fireplace that never needs cleaning, only dusting? We had it on the night before last, but it makes me feel worried rather than happy. The last one we had in a house here in the UK, was very expensive to run and we had to ration its use. We are not wealthy - or extravagant.

Imagine the cringeworthyness of being a very poor person, deciding whether to eat or keep warm. Of always feeling cold in your house. Of always feeling a little worried rather than comfortable.

One of the jobs I worked at here in the UK was in an ancient building with a loo attached to the back. We were very cold in that building because the central heating had snuffed it and the owner seemed uninterested in fixing it.  But the loo was the coldest place on earth! Having come in from a tropical country, I used to sit on that loo and wonder how ANYONE survived imprisonment in the dungeons of castles that I used to read about in fairy tales about the Northern Hemisphere.

In fact, I am sitting here wondering how anyone survived living in houses that were not centrally heated. But they did!

I am sitting here thinking about the absolute cringeworthyness of being cold and feeling sorry for all the people trapped in ice cages in cold places.

Cringeworthyness of rich and poor smokers/vapers

The last two days I have written about the stuff that makes our stomachs twist observing the extremely rich  or extremely poor. Just thinking about it, evokes emotion. It's cringeworthy.

Extremely rich smokers, with the power of their money, are able to simply smoke. They can arrange their lives so their smoking habit continues almost as normal. Private air travel, private hotel suites, booths in clubs and restaurants,  bribes, payments and a bit of manipulation makes life for a rich smoker rather less stringently uncomfortable than anyone not so privileged. They can afford to smoke, price no problem, and laws that grip the poor man, hardly apply.


A poor person, is the one who cops the persecution and suffers the cost.

There are many extremely rich  and powerful people who could nudge governments and legislators away from the futile aim of eradicating smoking altogether and abusing us in the process.

But why should they? The rich and powerful will always be able to smoke.

Many extremely rich people have changed their brand to vaping. In the event that electronic cigarettes are banned, they will carry on vaping.

Again, those without money will feel the pain. Real life is experienced by the poor - smoking was once a simple comfort. Vaping could be too if the busybodycringeworthyhealthindustry just left things to pan out on their own.

Do you think there will be extremely rich smokers/vapers prominently demanding their right to smoke/vape in an illegal smoking/vaping future? 

Nah? Me neither.

The cringeworthyness of the newly extremely poor

Yesterday I posted a blog on the cringeworthyness of the newly extremely wealthy. Today I was thinking of the disadvantages of being newly extremely poor - the opposite.

The reason I am thinking about this is because I know someone who has fallen on hard times. And I bet there are many in the current economic climate in the same position. 

In the United Kingdom, hard times means asking the state for assistance. This is awfully humiliating. One has to expose to the State all the details of your life, financial in-comings, outgoings, housing, health, relationships, life style. The action of doing this to a private person who has managed their life adequately previously eats into self esteem.

Small events become large. The discomfort of planning a meal for more than your own family, stops initial socialising until your friends and family discover the truth - that you no longer can afford it. You turn down invitations to join friends at the movies or other outings, because you cannot pay your way. Other people's birthdays and gifts for celebrations become secret burdens. Lightheartedness leaves you.

You computate the cost of the smallest things. You have to choose this thing over that thing, practicality over luxuary.

When the truth emerges that you are in financial trouble, your self esteem is challenged with "gifts" of clothing, food and offers of loans from those who you might feel are only "sorry for you". If you have a stable self respect, you might accept these offerings as "love and friendship".  You might feel unsure how to handle this - you know they make you feel uncomfortable - guilty and beholden.

Every application for a job interview, become a total life focus of hope, disappointment and hurt. It is necessary to not dress yourself in the clothing of depression, poverty and hopelessness and to wear a fake outfit of all the qualities you know your possible employer requires. If you are lucky, you will find the work you want before you have to sell your assets. The worry is emotionally crippling.
 
Being newly extremely poor, is deeply stressful. And our society, often views it as a place of non-success and shame. Yet it can incubate deep wisdom, empathy, gratitude, fortitude and courage in those who go through it.

The lack of money is a leaden cage - a horrible trap.  For the newly extremely poor, I hope it is a temporary one from which they can find themselves quickly freed.

The cringeworthyness of extreme wealth

We were talking at our meal tonight with our visitors on the cringeworthyness of extreme new wealth. Our friend, an airline engineer told us about a couple who had their private jet decorated to the tune of £2 000 000 - exquisitely - and unused, sold it on to another couple. As they entered it to view their new purchase, a gift to his wife from the husband, The wife put her hands to her face and exclaimed "Oh God, the decor is dreadful. We must re-decorate! I couldn't fly in this!"

Well what a load of bollocks - of course she could fly in it! What an indiscriminate waste of money.  How vain glorious!

Then, the newly extremely wealthy have the new bother of "the servants" fawning, obsequious, bowing and scraping, trying to please - grovelling really. Their friends and acquaintances, doing the same. It must feel uncomfortable, deeply, inside them. They must suffer a dreadful suspicion of whether someone is being nice, because of their wealth.

The newly extremely wealthy have the problem of money - where to put it, how to spend it, how to get more, and who should inherit it.

Extreme new wealth demands extreme detail. The detail is added by others at the demand of the wealthy. They get paid well for it if they are artists, jewelers, craftsmen, designers but not enough if they are servants enduring the burden of another's delusion of their own importance. Extreme wealth can manipulate, extort, influence and corrupt - an extreme power.

Extreme new wealth seems to place the extremely newly wealthy outside our reality. To me, they seem to be badly behaved,  ill mannered, spoiled and lonely members of humanity expelled from the freedom of being happy with the simple things, like gratitude for the mundane, like security in relationships, like appreciation of utility without glamourisation, like enjoying the lightheartedness of less, like simply dreaming of better things.

How sad to live in such a gilded cage.

Positive Vaping

Yesterday I wrote a blog longing for a sunny day. I visualised a sunny day in my imagination. And today, this morning, it was a sunny day!

So I am going to visualise a day when everyone knows what vaping is. A time when electronic cigarettes are an acceptable substitute for smoking.  A future where there were no countries where electronic cigarettes were banned. An era when vaping was considered as convivial as drinking a cup of coffee or having a cup of tea or hot chocolate.

I am going to imagine it would happen without struggle, just like my sunny day!

Chemtrail curses!

I dunno. I'm absolutely SICK of the rain.

By now, we must be all deficient in Vitamin D which is a hormone you get from the sun essential for a good immune system.  My eyes will be unable to handle sunshine because, by now, they have become used to the dark half-light of being indoors illuminated by these dreadful untested energy efficient light bulbs. I feel like a troglodyte. The dog, cat and me are getting fat through lack of exercise. My house is cold 'cause there is something wrong with our central heating and my eliquid taste like nothing - nothing tasting eliquid! My taste buds are shutting down - my palate is failing.

I reckon it's chemtrails causing it!

I was fascinated reading about this on Facebook -  see below in Italics and thank you Dan.
 
(But, of course, if you think our governments cannot possibly do this to us, I found THIS ARTICLE which I remember shocked the hell out of me over 10 years ago! So I think there is more to this than meets the eye.)


READ ON
 Since approximately 1998, thousands of people started noticing airplanes spraying X’s, parallel lines, and grid patterns across our skies. These trails initially look like contrails but actually aren’t.
According to the U.S. Air Force, contrails are condensation trails and happen when hot engine exhaust momentarily condenses ice crystals into pencil-thin vapor trails that quickly vanish like the

wave behind a boat, very much like your breath when talking outside on a cold winter day. Chemtrails, on the other hand, linger for hours and will spread out to form large areas of “cloud” cover.

There are several theories as to why these operations may be occurring. However, most of the documentation available points to geo-engineering and space weaponry as the reasons that these spray operations are occurring. A concept that keeps popping up in major governmental studies is the idea of spraying aluminum oxide particles into the atmosphere to create a sunscreen.

This concept is exactly what respected scientist Edward Teller, the father of the H-Bomb, called for in 1997 while at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories. In a government sponsored report called Global Warming and Ice Ages, he suggested the scattering of 1 million tons of materials into the atmosphere in order to reflect 1% of incoming sunlight. He states that it would be cheaper to slow global warming through "stratospheric deployment of oxide particulates" than to actually slow down
greenhouse gases connected with fossil-fired energy production.

The sunscreen concept is also called for in a major congressional study titled Policy Implications of Greenhouse Warming, which was sponsored by the National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of Engineering, and the Institute of Medicine. This huge study was reported in 1992 and is the textbook on greenhouse gasses, global warming, policy decisions and mitigations. In this study, they talk about spraying the atmosphere with “stratospheric dust or soot” and to “simulate clouds” in order to mitigate global warming. The study also suggested dumping iron into the ocean to stimulate plankton that could potentially eat carbon dioxide. By looking at Moss Landing Marine Laboratories’ recent dumping of iron in the ocean to do just that, you can see that these are not just theories. They are theories in actual use. But the iron theory backfired when a large amount of fish died. So what are the unreported consequences of spraying the atmosphere?

Ken Caldera, also from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories, is a concerned scientist who said that this type of spray operation could have grave environmental consequences and could cause serious health concerns. But it seems they cared nothing about Mr. Caldera’s concerns.

Our children are now even being taught this aerial obscuration concept in our schools. In the level one science book, "Essential Interactions" by Centre Point Learning, Inc., a photo of a jet is titled "Particle Air" and has the caption "Jet engines running on richer fuel would add particles to the atmosphere to create a sunscreen". This is in the section titled "Solutions for Global Warming". In the same section they also show a picture of a helicopter dumping iron into the ocean as a way to mitigate global warming, as we mentioned earlier. Again, CNN actually reported the iron theory being carried out. These are not just “theories”.

Not only do the governmental studies support this sunscreen theory but there are also actual patents that have been issued for devices to carry these operations out. One important patent is the 1994 Welsbach patent issued to the Hughes Aircraft Co. It is for atmospheric spraying with aluminum oxide to reduce global warming by “seeding” and reflecting 1% of incoming sunrays. It so happens that aluminum consistently turns up in chemtrail related lab test results.

Another patent worth mentioning is the 1975 US Navy patent which is for a “contrail generation apparatus for producing powder contrails. In the summary section it clearly states “the term 'contrail' was adopted for convenience in identifying the visible powder trail". It appears they are still using the word “contrail” for convenience. The people carrying out these types of operations will never use the word “chemtrails”. They use terms such as aerial obscuration, persistent contrails, or sky soot.

But Dennis Kucinich did use the word “chemtrails” in the Space Preservation Act of 2001 in which he tried to ban chemtrails and other space-based weapons. He wrote the bill, also called H.R. 2977, while he was the head of the U.S. Arms Oversight Committee. The bill calls for a ban on space-based weapons and a ban on the types of operations that we’re seeing happen now. In section 7 of the bill, “chemtrails” is considered an exotic weapon.

Space-based weaponry is another likely reason that these operations are occurring. As is stated in the Air Force study Owning the Weather in 2025, it is a major advantage to modify the weather and cause rain or drought for the enemy. Their report states that the spraying of certain chemicals in the skies assists to jam radar and tele-communications systems. They go on to say that these activities could have tremendous potential in times of military aggression and are proud of the fact that these tactics could also have enormous psychological potential, which would be just as beneficial as causing drought or constant rain. The study even goes on to say that “one major advantage of using simulated weather to achieve a desired effect is that unlike other approaches, it makes what are otherwise the results of deliberate actions appear to be the consequences of natural weather phenomena”.

These operations are also advantageous to the HAARP, which stands for ‘High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program’. HAARP is a highly funded research project in Alaska focusing on altering and manipulating the atmosphere for weather and military dominance. The US has a long history of spraying chemicals on innocent people in this country. The Freedom of Information Act has allowed us to access information about these experiments, including the spraying of biological agents over San Francisco in 1950 to see who got sick. This is just one example of many. Just recently in 2001, Captain Reily stood against the military’s open air germ testing. There are many more examples in the history of aerial spray operations that you can read about on the website Chemtrails911.com.

In 1997 and again in 2000, U.S. Title 50, Section 32 was actually revised to allow for exceptions in conducting experiments on unwitting citizens.

Test results from Chemtrials have returned positive for aluminum, barium, bacteria, virus, human blood, and molds. These chemicals are being sprayed in our skies. It's in our air we breathe at levels that are deemed unsafe.

According to the American Lung Association, asthma is on the rise among all people in the United States and is the leading serious chronic illness among children. It is very likely that there is not just one single reason for the Chemtrails, but instead, there may be multiple goals to this operation. Without public pressure, it is not likely that they will ever tell us the reasons as to why they are spraying us.

Unfortunately, the goals of this activity aren’t known with absolute certainty because when high level officials are asked about these spray operations, they say that
what we are seeing is “normal”. When concerned pilots and Air Force personnel ask their superiors questions relating to these operations, their concerns are met with replies like “this information is on a need-to-know basis” or they are given special misinformation to make them think they are doing this for the good of the people. They are also told that speaking out on this issue will violate national security and that they will be held accountable.

These operations cause us to have great concerns. We do not like being part of a secret spray operation without our consent. We are very worried about the health implications of spraying chemicals that are on the OSHA hazardous list. And the fine talcum powder-sized particles they call for to be sprayed are very harmful to our health according to the American Medical Association.

There is no reason to think that this will stop without public pressure. All across the country, people are noticing that something is being sprayed from planes and it is making people sick! It is time for us to pay attention and speak out! Please visit the information within this site and the many other sites that are available.
Educate yourself and tell others.

Vapers unite!

I have just written my blog for today on my "Life on an Alien Planet" Blogspot. Why I mention it is that I was reminiscing on the vital energy and enthusiasm that was in the world during the sixties. Historically, the only other time in modern history that it really felt it was "the good time" was in the 1920's. It was not just something that happened to people individually - the enthusiasm and optimism bubbled over into the whole of society. People felt empowered.

There is nothing like it today. I write my blog "Life on an Alien Planet" because the lack of this uplifting optimism makes me feel I am living in a strange place - a weird and different planet, where civil objection/unrest seems only reported if it is politically correct. My children mostly think how they live now is normal - but they are mistaken. I think many people reading my blog (s) will think they live in a "normal" society - but they are mistaken too.

The main reason this time is not like the 20's or the 60's is that people have been bludgeoned and brainwashed into conformity by the biases in their governments have put into legislation "for our own good". The "fuck you" attitude of the 20's and 60's is missing. The mainstream media reports what it is manipulated to.

If vaping is going to be banned by the WHO and the EU because it "looks like smoking", then us vapers are in trouble. Vaping will become the victim of the Tobacco Control Industries' attempts to eradicate smoking off the face of the earth (see my blog).

I think, if we want to avoid being run over in the eradication process, we have to become very LOUD, very ACTIVE. We might be forced to PROTEST like we used to in the 60's. We need some part of the press on our side. We need to expose the lies that are appearing about vaping.We need to be prepared to defend ourselves.

Some vapers are already doing this. Thank you! We need to support them as much as we can. Unity is strength.

For dog trainers everywhere...aaaaah!

Hum - science or TC twististics? Kids addicted to nicotine in SHS?

I was interested in this study (below) only because I would love to blow it out of the water! Just the title shows the bias. I would like to have seen the questionnaires given to 9-12 year old never smokers. But, you have to pay! I bet the questionaires were suitably angled to achieve the correct answers - especially the ones on " 6% of never-smoking children reported symptoms of craving, 8% reported cue-triggered wanting to smoke, and 20% reported subjective symptoms in response to ETS exposure. In never-smoking children, a higher number of smokers in the child’s social environment was associated with more symptoms of cue-triggered wanting to smoke and more subjective symptoms in response to ETS."

Adults can't specifically analyse a "craving" - what is a "craving"? How do you ask about your "craving" without putting words in your mouth? Or drawing them out? 

This study makes me well suspicious of the "science" here.

 I grew up in a family where smoking, drinking and sex were frowned upon.  My sister and I smoked all our lives. A year ago I changed my brand to vaping, but my sister smokes still. So we grew up in a home where no one smoked, no relatives smoked and no friends of the family smoked. I was quite old before I saw anyone smoking. But I did spend the weekend sometimes with my granny and grandpa in their quarters at the YMCA and I loved the smell of cigarettes, pipes and cigars which I never saw being smoked as I was not allowed into any rooms besides their  living quarters. 

In comparison, all my five children grew up with both parents smoking, and in those days we smoked inside.  I smoked and drank through every pregnancy. All our children grew up healthy and well. Of five children, only my son smokes - five home rollies a day and he is wracked with guilt about that. Such guilt is very unhealthy - more unhealthy than smoking!

 So I don't know about this study below - sounds sort of Tobacco Control science to me. What do you think?

Responses to environmental smoking in never-smoking children: can symptoms of nicotine addiction develop in response to environmental tobacco smoke exposure?

 A recent line of studies has brought attention to the question whether repeated exposure to environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) is capable of producing psycho-physiological effects in non-smokers and whether symptoms of nicotine dependence can develop in the absence of active smoking. Children seem to be particularly vulnerable to the effects of ETS. We examined the occurrence of psycho-behavioural symptoms, designed to assess nicotine addiction and nicotine withdrawal, in a sample of 778 never-smoking children aged 9–12 years using cross-sectional survey data collected in 15 Dutch primary schools. In the present study, 6% of never-smoking children reported symptoms of craving, 8% reported cue-triggered wanting to smoke, and 20% reported subjective symptoms in response to ETS exposure. In never-smoking children, a higher number of smokers in the child’s social environment was associated with more symptoms of cue-triggered wanting to smoke and more subjective symptoms in response to ETS. Never-smoking children and children who had initiated smoking were equally likely to report subjective symptoms in response to ETS exposure. In conclusion, environmental smoking is associated with self-reported psycho-behavioural symptoms in never-smoking children. Future research needs to investigate whether symptoms in children exposed to ETS are physiologically based or whether they reflect other characteristics which predispose youth for smoking initiation in the future.

How to ruin a party.

Once, manners stipulated it was essential never to discuss sex, politics or religion if you wanted acceptance at a party and not inflame passion and ire against you.

Currently, sex, politics and religion seem absolutely safe.

The topics you should avoid discussing nowadays are Israel, Abortion and Smoking.

In fact, to stop the party and confirm you are persona non gratia in the eyes of your host simply point out that Israel is viewed by Palestine as an illegal occupying State, abortion is an essential right for every woman, and that passive smoking effects are lies concocted to promote sales for Big Pharma and that smokers should have rights. That should do it! Have fun!

Vape on.

Graphic warning labels are viscious nocebos

Graphic warning labels on any packaging whether it is on future food, alcohol or current tobacco products is a criminal action against people. Many of the pictures on cigarette packets and ones chosen for "plan" packaging are not true and have been chosen for their revulsion effect. Cherry picking the most emotive, terrifying conditions that are not necessarily smoking related to depict in this way is devious lying. Truth it isn't!

Traumatising pictures, visual abuse, and subliminals have not been tested as dangerous nocebos.

Graphic warning labels are more than just warnings. I agree with this article below, but in actual fact, it goes further than just that.  All graphic warning labels viewed over and over and over again, replaced every two years with new ones accepted into the subconscious mind repetitively by smokers using tobacco products is AN ACT OF VIOLENCE, a self fulfilling prophecy, IMPLANTED disease and truly criminal legislation. They are not just unconstitutional as the article below suggests, they are viscious nocebos. I would like to see more investigation into the effect on smokers who do not choose to stop smoking over years and years of seeing them. This is anti-health for those already at a disadvantage, and anti-health for anyone whose eyes see them repeatedly. And it is a dreadful probability that they might be used as anti-health on foods and alcohol, or even e cigarettes!.

New Study on Graphic Warning Labels Provides Further Evidence that They are Unconstitutional

A new study on the effectiveness of cigarette graphic warning labels published in the current issue of the American Journal of Preventive Medicine inadvertently provides evidence that the FDA's requirement that tobacco companies place these "warnings" on their cigarette packs is unconstitutional, as it compels speech that is not purely factual.

(See: Trasher JF, et al. Cigarette Warning Label Policy Alternatives and Smoking-Related Health Disparities. American Journal of Preventive Medicine 2012; 2012;43(6):590–600.)

The study was intended to test the effectiveness of graphic warning labels in deterring smoking among adult smokers. A sample of 1000 adult smokers was divided into experimental and control groups. The control group was shown the current text-only warnings while the experimental groups were shown a series of graphic pictorial warnings. Subjects were asked to rate the warnings in terms of credibility, relevance, and perceived effectiveness.

The study found that pictorial warnings were rated as more effective and concludes that such warnings are effective in encourage smoking cessation: "A cost-effective means of intervention, pictorial labels and specifically graphic imagery have the potential to significantly influence adult smokers to understand the range and magnitude of smoking-related risks, while encouraging them to quit."

The Rest of the Story

It is a huge stretch to conclude from this study that pictorial cigarette warnings are effective in promoting smoking cessation among adult smokers. The study merely tested the perceived effectiveness of the labels following a single exposure occurring in a laboratory setting and did not measure any actual change in behavior. There is strong evidence that there is a rapid wear-out effect whereby smokers get used to the warnings quickly and they fail to motivate quitting after this wear-out occurs.

This type of evidence is simply not going to withstand scientific scrutiny by the courts. The D.C. Court of Appeals has already let it be known that it is not going to be swayed by this type of experimental evidence. There are no convincing studies that demonstrate an actual effect of graphic warning labels on smoking behavior and the FDA admitted as much.

But the more interesting aspect of the rest of the story is that this study inadvertently provides evidence for the tobacco companies to bolster their argument that the graphic warning labels are unconstitutional. The key issue is whether the labels are merely presenting factual information or whether they are attempting to promote smoking cessation by stirring emotions and going beyond merely providing facts to warn users about the health effects.

According to this study: "The tobacco industry has argued that the FDA’s proposed imagery is not real and involves emotional appeals instead of the simple transmission of risk information. However, smokers in the present study rated the graphic imagery as more credible, personally relevant, and effective than either textual content or alternative imagery that could be used in its place."

And how, exactly, did the study measure the effectiveness of the warning labels? One of the questions used to assess effectiveness was whether: “The health warning label makes you think about quitting.” Only after this question was asked were respondents asked to rate the overall effectiveness of the warning labels. Thus, it was clear to respondents that the effectiveness of the warning labels was to be assessed in terms of the degree to which they encouraged smoking cessation.

Clearly, then, the intended purpose of the warning labels in the eyes of tobacco control practitioners is not merely to provide health information but to effectively encourage smoking cessation. This is precisely the tobacco industry's argument and this paper helps to confirm that argument. These labels are not merely thought of in the tobacco control movement as a mechanism to effectively inform smokers about the health consequences of smoking. They are thought of and intended as a mechanism to persuade smokers to quit.

In other words, the FDA is forcing the tobacco companies to use their cigarette packages as a sort of anti-smoking billboard in which they must encourage consumers not to use that product. This goes beyond the provision of factual information and therefore makes the warning labels subject to a higher level of scrutiny. The labels do not pass that higher level of scrutiny because there is not sufficient evidence to demonstrate that they will be effective for their intended purpose and it cannot be argued that the intervention is the least intrusive one available for this purpose.

Doing the math - death by vaping, how would we know?


I read a very confusing article HERE Oh dear - it's gone! (Or rather, I now have to register for it) 

So, I'll just try to remember - It said that from now till 2040, the number of women dying from lung cancer will grow 360% while deaths for men would increase - can't remember - 36%?. This is because my generation of women (that's me , so I identified with this report) began smoking in the 60's - and I did.

Well - we are all now in our late sixties I should think. I figured if we are snuffing it in our millions from now till 2040 - another 28years for me - we'd have had a good innings smoking or no smoking. 

 In 2040 -  women who started smoking in the sixties  will be in their nineties. 
 
I'm not arguing with experts - I'm trying to do the Math.

I must remember to tell my doctor if I get lung cancer in the next 28 years it;s probably the smoking I did for 50 years rather than the vaping I have done for over a year and intend doing in the future. 

 I can see a collision here of statistics.  Older vapers, dying from lung cancer (from smoking) might be counted as proof that vaping causes lung cancer - how would we know?

Cleaning the grime in my grout

I watched a strange channel on TV - well it was for me! It was adverts for house cleaning devices. The bit that fascinated me, was the section promoting a steam cleaner that "cleans with steam". It looked magical! The advert went on for what must have been half-an-hour or even an hour of fantastical illusion.

But I know the truth - no one can pull the wool over my eyes.

I have a steam cleaner.

I nearly fell off my chair laughing at the woman who said her steam cleaner was perfect for "cleaning the grime in my grout". But I know the truth - no one can pull the wool over my eyes.

I have a steam cleaner.

And the truth is a blast with bleach from a spray bottle is the easiest, quickest and least exhausting method for cleaning the grime in my grout.

Cleaning the grime in my grout is bloody hard work with a steam cleaner!

I know the truth - no one can pull the wool over my eyes.

I have a steam cleaner.

I KNOW.

I think it must be in the attic somewhere, can't remember now......

And here's Bill Hicks....

Corporatocracy and vaping

I am hoping that more and more people will realise that many things about the world we live in have been "manufactured" by powerful groups of people under the influence of greed. Take the social engineering that has switched a world of smokers to self righteous non-smokers, and made smoking behaviour unacceptable.  Nicotine became the "demon" and, no wonder. It is cheap and easy to make into NRT by Drug Corporations, and so, profits can be diverted from Tobacco Corporations to Drug Corporations under the guise of Tobacco Control Corporations. I don't think this is a conspiracy theory - I think it's the truth. I think vaping and all things vaping are being legislated against for the same reason.

I haven't made up my mind on 9/11. Every conspiracy theory movie seems correct while I'm watching it! There is something VERY strange about 9/11! We saw a BBC News report "live" telling us building seven had collapsed when it was still standing right there behind the reporter. It's psychic news? Recently, I have wondered whether there is much information that is not manipulated in some way by the media.

My friend was vacuuming her house when she saw the twin towers falling on the TV. Without sound, she thought is was another disaster movie and turned the set off. It was only that night on the above mentioned BBC News broadcast, she realised it was real. 



So I believe everything and nothing!

I think a lot of events are staged - or "allowed" to happen - Pearl Harbour for instance. Every disaster can be used to the advantage of Corporations (every Government and Government department like Police, CIA, MI5, Army (etc) is a Corporation.

This "corporate" idea is quite new in History. It changes society from democracy to a Corporatocracy society  'Democracy' disappeared many years ago. Governments are purely puppets of the real people in power - the Corporations. Most Corporations are focused on profit. They will do anything, good, bad or indifferent to further themselves.

I think that's why Presidents and Prime Ministers become visibly shriveled shells of their former selves. They realise they are only puppets, out of their depths.

Corporatocracy is our real enemy, the real terrorists, the real rulers in Governments and sculptors of world history. And the reason why there is a war on drugs, smoking, electronic cigarettes and food and rampant promotion of consumerism encouraging our search for happiness they tell us we should have on one hand, and remove from us by legislation, with the other.

Well that's what I think anyway.

10 steps to dripping

I am a tank person. I like tanks because I feel (rightly or wrongly) that I get a purer flavour from my eliquid without it marinading in wadding. But recently, I have been dripping.

This is my DIY method for dripping on an overspent vaping budget with no money to buy the proper thing.

Prepare your old single coil cartomiser for dripping.

1 take the bung off old carto
2 get your tweezers and grip the wadding (not the centre post)
3 TWIST the carto slowly and firmly not letting go of the wadding - hold it tight
4 after a few twists, even though you are not noticing anything spectacular, gradually pull up and out.
5 the wadding will slide out caught in your tweezers and the centre post should be unaffected.
6 congratulate yourself - mission accomplished
7 chuck out the wadding
8 insert drip tip
9 screw your dripping carto onto your battery
10 drip 3-5 drops of eliquid down the driptip - blow down it - vape

I have to admit the flavour is doubly scrumptious - but what a pain to have to drip, vape, drip.
But a huge advantage in dripping is that you can change flavours at a whim and you aren't stuck with a tank of disappointing stuff.

Why I loved the smell of smoking

I grew up in Africa. When I was two, my mother and father placed me in an orphanage as they were called in those days, and went off to America for a year to further their careers, My sister was farmed out to a family friend, whose children were about the same age as my sister, and who bullied and persecuted her shamefully. It seems she might have had a worse time than I did.

Granny and Grandpa ran The YMCA in the city near us. It was housed in a truly wonderful Victorian building with a vast elegant stairway with thick curled wood banisters polished to a gleaming shine by years of stroking hands. The stairs led up from the foyer to the pool rooms, meeting rooms and smoking rooms upstairs. And also, Granny and Grandpa's quarters.

On the weekends, Granny and Grandpa would fetch me from the orphanage (of which I remember nothing) and bring me to stay with them overnight. I think it must have been overnight sometimes, because I can remember lying in a very small bed next to a wall through which came the sound of pool balls clicking and dropping into pockets and men laughing.

But what stands out in my memory was the wonderful delight of going up the marvelous stairs and smelling the fragrance of cigarette smoke, pipe smoke and cigars and knowing I was home.

It was delicious!

And it was NOTHING like the smell of today's smoking. My memory comes from about 1946 before the habit of smoking was meddled with by Big Tobacco or Anti Tobacco.

The nicotine myth - down a rabbit hole!

Thank you Randall for sending me  Pr Molimard's ideas - this link  

The nub of the argument is that nicotine is cheap and easy to manufacture and has been promoted by Drug Companies as a NRT to "assist" smokers to the profit of themselves. Governments are squandering money on something no better than placebo.

I have translated the nub of it via Google Translate....

The myth of addiction to nicotine

Ove Ferno, a Swedish chemist of the firm LEO said in an interview with the saga of the development of nicotine gum, the 1967 patent in 1978 [3]. According to its self-observation, he was convinced that nicotine was the factor of tobacco dependence. Yet the team of Russell in London already asked questions about it [4]. (See here)

In fact, simple observations could already doubt that nicotine alone can explain the powerful tobacco dependence:

- Usually, when a plant chemist isolates a molecule active addictive, addicts get hold fast (morphine from opium, cocaine from coca leaves, cannabis tetrahydrocannabinol, etc.).
- We know the nicotine from a century and a half, extracted, synthesized. Used as an insecticide, we have no observation of its use under addictive.
- In times of war where the tobacco quota was rare and we have no comments to add nicotine to cigarettes various leaves, wormwood, walnut etc. used as tobacco substitutes.
- Under the same conditions, no traffic nicotine has been reported.
- The pure nicotine can be obtained from chemical companies (Fluka) to 440 per liter, which corresponds to € 1 143 would accrue to cigarettes. No "drug" is available at a price so low.


>>>>>>>

conclusion

Unfortunately we do not have any medication effective enough to be a recommendation, whether the nicotine in all its forms, of bupropion (Zyban °) or varenicline (Champix °). The level of evidence of their effectiveness is very low and criticism. Doctors are prescribing formatted almost mandatory these products biased scientific literature and opinion leaders bound by conflicts of interest, and the demand of a population conditioned by the general public magazines and advertising. The role of health authorities is to provide objective information on these products, whose activity is hardly more than a placebo effect, but with financial consequences unnecessarily encumber the family budget and the Health Insurance. A serious analysis seems unable to conclude that a very low benefit / cost ratio or risk.


And a link to a second article by  Jean-Pol Tassin et Marc Kirsch

Suggests that what the brain does under the influence of drugs like Cocaine, Alcohol etc does not happen in the presence of nicotine. There is something else...(read below) and therefore NRT is useless. 

Translated again....

In summary, here is the new concept of drug dependence that we proposed: drugs decouple the noradrenergic and serotonergic neurons, they become autonomous and hyper-reactive. The addict is weaned so hyper-sensitive to emotions, and drug re-creating the situation that led to the decoupling becomes a source of temporary relief. We demonstrate this dissociation for alcohol, for morphine, heroin, amphetamine, cocaine. All these products lead to dissociation. Rest nicotine. But in fact, when we study the case of nicotine, we realize it does not produce this effect.


Nicotine does not cause this decoupling. This explains why, for years, all animal models of nicotine are ineffective or operate very mediocre set of amphetamine, the animal starts running, turn nicotine, it does not move. Give amphetamine self-administration, the animal reacts very actively, with nicotine, it is very difficult. All experiments with nicotine is bad. But researchers insist, because they believe their model and believe it should apply to nicotine. They believe that the failure does not contradict the core of their argument, but must be related to factors annexes and secondary. So they make hundreds of experiments to show that under certain conditions, paying attention to certain elements, etc.., We still manage to get a result. I think there is a bias. For my part, I find that nicotine administration in animals does not produce the effects predicted by the current model of addiction.
In 1995, Yvan Berlin to study the effect of antidepressants, is conducting a study comparing a group of patients receiving antidepressants with a control group who did not receive. It is based on the measurement of a metabolite in the urine. The results are unexpected in the control group, about 50 subjects, 25 had a rate of 100 and 25 have rates 50. Puzzled, he seeks how to explain this anomaly, research bias in the recruitment of subjects, etc.., To finally realize that there is only one parameter that can be correlated with these results, c ' is the fact that the subjects were smokers or not. But it is not the nicotine that explains this difference in concentration. But among the 3,000 constituents in tobacco, there are monoamine oxidase inhibitors, MAOIs, which seem to have an important role. Berlin identifies these monoamine oxidase as the source of the effects he observed. This is the state of play when my team is at work on this issue. There is nicotine in experimental does not work as predicted by the dominant model, there is the simultaneous presence of nicotine in tobacco and monoamine oxidase and the fact that tobacco is an addictive product to potential particularly high. In the classification of addictive potential, tobacco comes first, followed by heroin, cocaine, amphetamine and alcohol, etc.. Tobacco addiction produces a rate of 22%.
So 22% of smokers are highly dependent?
In reality, it is a little more complex. 90% of smokers are addicted, but 22% of the population, that is to say people who have tried smoking once in their life, have become addicted. This is significant. For the alcohol, according to the studies, it is between 2 and 8%.
This addiction is not the product of nicotine alone. We tried unsuccessfully to occur with nicotine decoupling effect I mentioned. Similarly, with monoamine oxidase in isolation, decoupling does not occur. However, when the two are combined, it works.
In other words, the nicotine addiction actually occurs, must be assigned either monoamine oxidase or products that have the same action. Seeking to identify the action of MAO inhibitors, we discovered that they alter a receptor in the brain. We modified this receiver with a very specific product that fits only on the receiver, then we injected nicotine and this time, decoupling occurred. So, we have a substitute product becomes effective.
Nicotine alone in patch or chewing gum, does not prevent smokers to continue smoking: 84% of people who take a patch relapse within one year, while no patch, it is the order of 90% - the difference is minimal. Early relapses occur very quickly, within a few weeks. We say to get that nicotine becomes a substitute effective, it must be associated with another product that will change the receiver in question, which in fact protects addiction. This solution is very effective on animaux3.

Nicotine addiction myth idea explored

 On my mission to discover why my body feels different vaping nicotine in eliquid rather than smoking cigarettes. I have begun to think that nicotine is not the only addictive chemical in cigarettes, and that something in tobacco more than nicotine is addictive. My eye fell on this paragraph below as I was reading this very boring report

"Research to understand dependence in relation to nicotine level, how reductions in nicotine affect tobacco use behaviors, and other constituents and components beyond nicotine that affect addiction of both combustible and noncombustible tobacco products will inform the FDA’s authority in this area." (my bold)

So they know. They KNOW.

I have already blogged a list of over 500 chemicals Tobacco Companies are allowed to add to tobacco.

Even while I was smoking, I found my body craved to smoke more with commercially produced cigarettes than if I rolled my own. The tobacco I smoked in my last years of smoking was supposed to be "natural tobacco". I certainly seemed to be less ruled by it. Perhaps that is why I could transition so easily to vaping?

My sister on the other hand  (thinking we have similar genes) cannot get off low nicotine cigarettes which presumably have loads of extra gunk added and were "forced" to be low nicotine by the past efforts of Tobacco Control. I think they made a bad error forcing Tobacco Companies to reduce nicotine in cigarettes. The result is, that people who smoke "mild", smoke MORE!  There is something really evil in my sister's cigarettes! She cannot do "home rollies" either - she HAS to have her "brand".  Nicotine does not sustain her. It is nicotine plus the unknown something in her cigarettes that has enslaved her.

Tobacco Control yabbing on about nicotine addiction "enslaving" us is, to my mind, not truthful.It's an addiction myth.










Research to understand dependence
in relation to nicotine level, how reductions in
nicotine affect tobacco use behaviors, and other constituents
and components beyond nicotine that affect addiction
of both combustible and noncombustible tobacco
products will inform the FDA’s authority in this area.

Test your nicotine myth addiction

I have been blogging about nicotine addiction, mine really, and noting that since I vape, I do not go insane for a "fix" as I used to when I smoked. My panic and desperation if separated from my cigarettes, was so awful that I simply changed my life so I would never have to face not being "ALLOWED" to smoke. My worst nightmare was having to go to hospital, being frightened and ill and not being able to comfort myself with a fag.

All that has changed. I just did this test as how it was when I was a smoker. My result was an 9 -  YOU ARE VERY STRONGLY DEPENDENT

I have redone it as I am now.  I scored 4 -  YOU ARE NOT OR ONLY SLIGHTLY DEPENDENT

Try it yourself - as your old self the smoker, and your new self as a vaper.

Nicotine addiction myth update and vaping

I wrote a controversial post yesterday on the myth of nicotine addiction. I suggested there might be another chemical that was more addictive in cigarettes. undiscovered as yet.

But perhaps what the Tobacco Companies have put INTO cigarettes/tobacco are more to blame for the terrible cravings I experienced whilst smoking WHICH I DO NOT HAVE as a vaper. Yes, I love the hand mouth comfort the action of vaping gives me and seeing the vapour I exhale. But trapped in a situation where I absolutely cannot vape, I remain sane.
