CDC: Cigar and Hookah Smoking Up--Among High School Students
Fewer American high school students smoked cigarettes in 2012 compared to 2011, according to a study released Friday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. But, at the same time, more high school students were smoking cigars, pipes, electronic cigarettes and hookahs.
Overall, 23.3 percent of high school students (grades 9-12) said they had used a tobacco product at least once in the 30 days before they were surveyed in 2012, said the study published in the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. That was down from the 24.3 percent who said they had used a tobacco product at least once in the same survey in 2011....
Hey Jim, actually just the opposite is true...the e-cigs are helping many to kick the real thing after trying everything else. Not only do they provide minimal nicotine, minus the other 2000+ chems, but they also provide a real cigarette like experience which eases the habitual side of the transition, ie, holding something in your fingers, puffing, etc. The E-cig is nothing more than a battery, and an atomizing chamber which heats the nicotine laced water inside to produce a vapor when puffed. on. Like anything else though, you have to want to quit.

E-cigarettes: Healthy tool or gateway device? They aren't sure of long term effects because they haven't been out that long. But what I have heard that Nicotine is a lot more addictive than caffeine, which this article seems to want to deny, and the statistics given in the article show that e-cigarettes aren't very effective in getting people to quit smoking.

I do the above six days a week, and I pay for the privilege, John UK. Who says that God doesn't have a sense of humor? Actually, I think I get up in the middle of the night because I had to give a pet dog her medicine. It seems to be a habit now. You guys sometime get some benefit from my reaching over and picking up a tablet, and I'm at least slightly entertained. On occasion I even pick up some knowledge on the wanderings on the Internet.

Diet and lifestyle can affect length of life, Jim?
