Beware of anti-vaping violence - nocebos inhaled to the brain

Oman has only recently enforced criminal nocebos on their cigarette packs. In this report it seems they are fully aware of how many of their citizens smoke. It would seem to me that there will also be statistics on how many of their smokers also die from smoking related illnesses. It would be really scientific to examine how, in future years, as they clamp down on smoking in all the known Western ways, their smokers might get sicker quicker as a result of the notices on packaging.

Not all countries have been abusing the minds of smokers with medical violoporn. It is those countries that would be a fertile study area to see if and how nocebos affect the health of those who are abused by them when those countries conform to WHO regulations. It would answer the question of whether "Smoking Kills" is a self fulfilling prophecy.

Quote - "Presently, the burden of tobacco use is greatest in high-income countries (18% of deaths attributable to tobacco use), intermediate in middle-income countries (11%), and lowest in low-income countries (4%).7 However, because rates of smoking are increasing in many low-income and middle-income countries and decreasing in most high-income countries, the proportion of deaths from tobacco use could increase in low- and middle-income countries as the number of tobacco-related deaths increases.6,7"

I'm not sure how to read this, but the burden of tobacco use is greatest in high-income countries (18% of deaths attributable to tobacco use), intermediate in middle-income countries (11%), and lowest in low-income countries (4%). It seems to mean 4% of deaths from smoking occurs in smokers in countries who might not yet have learnt the technique of brainwashing their citizens to death. What is a low income country - one where citizens are free to smoke without guilt? Low income countries that I have lived in, have been smoking for thousands of years, but they smoke their own mix.

Of course scientists will not  expend energy on that kind of research, until we realise how important the mind is on personal heath.

I have raged Here and Here

We vapers need to be acutely aware not to take into our minds the negative things being spread around about vaping. A lot of them are aimed at us by vaping enemies (anti smoking groups). We need to stay mentally in our positive attitude to vaping. It is a healthy attitude. I choose to vape as I chose to smoke. I smoked mostly in an era that was lighthearted about smoking. A time before medical violoporn and criminal subliminals dripped into our minds. I was ignorant and happy - and WELL

I loved smoking. Some of the best memories of my life are of smokes and peak experiences - after the births of my children, on planes to exciting places, on top of mountains, next to a lake, after meals, at special parties, and often, just feeling happy, safe and relaxed in my own chair in my own home. In my happiest times, I have smoked.

I am delighted with vaping. I enjoy it more than smoking. I am looking forward to some really happy times.
