As with many forums, this site also needs moderators to keep a clean and unobtrusive running.

If you think you have got it, then you will start at the forum level and then once you have shown an understanding, can then moderate all forums.

  New Study on Asthma and Vaping: Long-term benefits
Posted by: P2PLeon - 23-07-2020, 04:08 PM - Forum: Tobacco Harm Reduction - No Replies

"Persisting long term benefits of smoking abstinence and reduction in asthmatic smokers who have switched to electronic cigarettes" - is the title of a study conducted by the research group led by Prof Riccardo Polosa at the University of Catania, and recently published in Discovery Medicine.


The asthmatic smoker represents a distinct disease phenotype, with increased susceptibility of exacerbations and poor asthma-specific health. Increased disease severity and marked impairment in asthma control is more frequently reported in people with asthma who have smoked more than 20 pack years. Most studies show an accelerated decline in lung function and increased airflow obstruction and even worse, asthma patients who smoke appear to have a reduced response to anti-asthma drugs, compared to asthmatics who do not smoke.


Although quitting smoking can reverse the negative impact of tobacco smoke on asthma symptoms and lung function, many smokers will keep smoking, because when given only the options of smoking or completely giving up nicotine, many will not give it up.
The group hypothesized that electronic cigarettes could not only assist asthmatic smokers to quit, but they could also contribute to harm reversal of subjective and objective asthma outcomes.


The research group investigated changes in the health status and respiratory function of 18 smokers with mild to moderate asthma who quit smoking by switching to daily electronic cigarette use. Baseline measurements were taken prior to switching and were compared with those obtained at 6, 12, and 24 months follow-up visits.


Long-term monitoring of respiratory symptoms, lung function, airway hyper-responsiveness, asthma control, asthma exacerbations and tobacco consumption in daily electronic cigarette users with asthma is of great importance to patients, consumers, manufacturers, health professionals and policy makers. “Significant improvements in respiratory symptoms and lung function have been consistent” - noted the lead author of the study, Prof Riccardo Polosa - with similar positive results being reported in dual users, that is, those who smoked and vaped simultaneously".


Polosa says that switching to daily use of electronic cigarettes may ameliorate clinical, functional and therapeutic outcomes for many asthma patients who smoke and that beneficial effects persist in the long-term. According to the researchers, the use of electronic cigarettes can even reverse the damage caused by tobacco smoke in asthma patients who smoke. Of note, deterioration in methacholine PC20, lung function, ACQ scores and exacerbation rates was noted in the two patients who relapsed to exclusive tobacco smoking.


Quitting smoking is an essential step for asthma patients, crucial for the effective treatment of their disease. However it is not always easy for them. In these cases, a less harmful alternative to tobacco smoking can be a valid option. This evidence-based notion that substitution of conventional cigarettes with electronic cigarettes is unlikely to raise significant respiratory concerns can improve counselling between physicians and their asthmatic patients, who are using or intend to use electronic cigarettes.

Just got this sent to me today, as I purchased it July 2nd 2020, so took 6 days to reach me.

On first smell, it is aromatic in Raspberry and is moist to the touch.

I have one in and has a good kick of everlasting flavour, and the nicotine is good too.

Will be ordering some more once my 10 cans run out.

  Forum Rules - Behaviours & Languages
Posted by: P2PLeon - 06-06-2020, 11:18 AM - Forum: Forum Rules - No Replies

As with many forums, they have rules that must be obeyed. And this forum is no exception.

For Languages

The main language that this board uses is English, and this is the default. If you say something in another language, you must state what has been said. But this must be to the minimum of one sentence. If you carry on speaking in another language then you may be banned. As this will be seen as spam.

For Behaviours

Everyone is seen as a friendly entity and you should also be friendly, the meaning of friendly has many shades of conversation. And one that must not do either of the following.

  • You must not name call.
  • You must refrain from using curse words.
  • You must accept somebody's creed, colour, sexual orientation, background, as an Equal Opportunities.
These are some of the main aspects of being friendly to another.










These rules may be amended at future updates, so please keep checking if they have been amended.
