An online survey conducted late last year by the Consumer Advocates for Smoke-Free Alternatives Association (CASAA) found that the overwhelming majority of questioned vapers attribute smoking cessation to the use of electronic cigarettes.
The self-administered survey was conducted in the months of November and December 2015, took about five to ten minutes to complete and was targeted at US-based members of the CASAA. Of the approximately 120,000 members, a total of 27,343 people completed the survey, and after excluding those who did not live in the United States and the few who were not at least 18 years old, 20,162 observations remained. Of these, a further 106 reported having never been e-cigarette users, defined by not having spent a total of $100 on e-cigarette products for personal use, and 238 declared they were not regular vapers, as defined by not having used an e-cigarette on at least 10 occasions in the last week. The statistics presented in the survey results are for the remaining 19,823 regular current electronic cigarette users.
Questions were organized into four main categories: Smoking History, Role of Flavors, Medical Advice and Response to FDA Ban Scenarios. 87% of respondents reported having quit smoking entirely after starting to use electronic cigarettes, 5% said they still smoked sometimes, and 3% had already quit before they started to use e-cigs. The remaining respondents were included in the 3% who had never been regular smokers, 3% who have an “other” answer and the few who declined to answer. Of the 980 people who answered that they still smoke, 34% reported smoking less than one cigarette a day on average, 42% one to 5 per day, and 23% more than five. The rest declined to answer. Of the 565 respondents who quit smoking before using electronic cigarettes, 48% said they were concerned that they would start smoking again and sought a substitute, 31% did not predict they would start smoking again but missed it and started using e-cigarettes because of that, and 21% gave an open-ended answer. Of the 17,186 respondents who quit smoking using e-cigarettes, 64% reported switching completely almost instantly, 21% reported dual-use but quit completely within a month, 11% used both for between one and six months before quitting smoking, and 3% used both cigarettes and e-cigs for more than six months. 94% of subjects reported having at least one attempt to quit smoking before using electronic cigarettes. Of these, 71% tried nicotine replacement therapies (NRT), 41% reported having used other pharmaceuticals (e.g., Chantix), 21% using formal counseling, 21% calling a quit line, 81% had tried unaided quitting and 8% had tried a different method. When asked about the role played by electronic cigarettes in their smoking cessation, 64% said they had started using e-cigs with the intention of quitting smoking, 25% started using e-cigs merely to cut down on cigarettes, but ended up quitting completely, and 11% started using e-cigs without the intention of quitting smoking or reducing the number of smoked cigarettes, but ended up quitting entirely. 99% of respondents said that they would still be smoking tobacco if not for electronic cigarettes.
Regarding the role of e-liquid flavors, participants had to mention using particular flavor categories regularly (defined as at least sometimes in a typical month): 83% reported vaping fruit or fruit beverages, 76% candy, soda or pastry, 30 % spice or savory (e.g., cinnamon, clove), 18% menthol/mint and only 19% reported vaping tobacco regularly. That pretty much destroys the theory that e-cigarettes are a gateway to smoking and that delicious flavors are simply a way of attracting children. Yes, it may be shocking to e-cigarette opponents, but it appears that adults like tasty stuff too.
Asked how often they use sweet flavors, 78% indicated that they use them more than other flavors or all the time, 14% reported using them some of the time and only 7% answered rarely or never. In contrast, when asked about how often they vape tobacco flavors, 48% said never, 25% rarely, 14% some of the time, and only 11% most or all the time. Of the e-cigarette users who had completely quit smoking, 72% credited tasty flavors with helping them give up tobacco, and of those who still smoke, 53% said interesting flavors are helping them in their quest to quit smoking.
The questions regarding what kind of medical advice subjects had received from a healthcare provider regarding the use of electronic cigarettes also yielded some very interesting results: Of the 65% of respondents who actually talked to a healthcare provider about e-cigarettes, 66% said they told the provider about their e-cig use and were encouraged to continue using them, 34% were told e-cigarettes were low risk, 26% got a neutral response, 5% told the provider about their use of e-cigarettes and were discouraged to continue using them and only 3% were told that e-cigarettes pose high risk. This data shows that despite the constant propaganda against vaping and electronic cigarettes, most healthcare providers actually understand the important role these devices can play in smoking cessation. They may not be very vocal in supporting them, but figures show that most support their use and even recommend their patients use them as a quit smoking aid.
Have you ever hesitated to buy your favorite pipe thinking about cleaning? Or have you trashed your water pipe just because it is hard to clean? This article is for you!!!
There are many methods to clean the pipe. After reading the article, you could pick your most convenient method and pursue it to clean your pipe and make it shine like it’s new.
Methods to clean pipes
Using Rubbing Alcohol
Using Boiling Water
Using Alternate Cleaning Solutions
Using Rubbing Alcohol
Remove any loose gunk from the pipe. Hold the pipe upside down and gently tap to remove any remaining particles. Then use a pipe cleaner, cotton swab, mechanical pencil, needle, or similarly thin object to remove any large, easily dislodged bits of resin you can reach. Don’t risk breaking the pipe to get at tough spots, as you only need to get anything big and easy to reach off now. This will help the alcohol clean the rest of the pipe faster.
Fill a plastic reseal-able bag with isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol. Try and purchase 90% isopropyl, as it will clean the pipe faster than the more watered-down 71% solution. Place the pipe inside, making sure it is fully submerged in the fluid. Alcohol breaks down tar and resin, making it easier to remove and cleaning off stains over time
Add 1 tablespoon of salt to the bag. Salt will act like an abrasive sponge on your pipe, scrubbing away the resin in places you could never reach with a sponge or brush. Because it is meant to rub away the resin, try and use the biggest grains of salt you can find — course or kosher salt is usually your best bet.
Shake the pipe in the bag, making sure to work the salt into the inside of the pipe. If possible, get the salt in the pipe and then use your fingers to close off the openings to the pipe. You can then shake up the salt inside the chamber, getting rid of as much resin as possible. Shake the bag for 1-2 minutes or until the pipe is visibly clean.
Soak the pipe for several hours and repeat in the morning to clean very dirty pipes. Add a splash of fresh isopropyl and let the pipe sit, submerged in the fluid, for several hours before shaking it up again. If you are using 71% isopropyl alcohol, then some of your salt may have dissolved, so be sure to add more if you seem to be missing some.
Rinse out the pipe with hot water. Remove all the alcohol and salt from the pipe with some piping hot water and discard the rest down the toilet, as it can stink up your sink and pipes if left undisturbed.
Clean out any remaining spots with a pipe cleaner or cotton swabs. Wipe off any little spots, dipping the end of your tool in some clean alcohol to get rid of any persistent stains. To remove any water marks or non-resin stains, soak the pipe for 10-15 minutes in a mixture of warm water and lemon juice.
Using Boiling Water
Knock out any lingering gunk or ash. Do a quick, basic cleaning of the pipe by knocking out any loose resin and using a cotton swab to wipe or dislodge any large pieces of gunk. Rinse the pipe out with warm water. Do not use cold water, as the transition from cold to boiling water may break your pipe.
Bring a small pot of water to a boil. Place it on the stove and bring to a boil. Reduce water to a simmer. Make sure there is enough water to cover the entire pipe, preferably by 3–4 inches (7.6–10 cm) at least, to be safe. A simmer is when there is a constant, but not extreme, cascade of bubbles breaking the surface of the water
Submerge the pipe in water. Make sure that the pipe is fully submerged in water. As it boils, the water will evaporate, so keep your eye on it so ensure your pipe doesn’t end up alone in a hot pan, which may crack it.
Allow pipe to soak for 20-30 minutes in simmering water. Remove pot from heat, drain out the water, and inspect the pipe to check for any excess residue. The pipe will be extremely hot, so use an oven mitt and extreme care to check it. Never douse the hot glass in cold water — this will cause it to shatter. You may need to repeat this process with a fresh pot of clean water until the pipe is thoroughly cleaned.
Use a pipe cleaner or cotton swab to remove any remaining residue. Take a cotton swab or pipe cleaner and wipe away any lingering residue. If there are water stains, soak your pipe for a few minutes in a mixture of lemon juice and 2–3 tablespoons (29.6–44.4 ml) of clean water and then let it air dry.
Using Alternate Cleaning Solutions
Try using denture cleaning tablets. Put your pipe the bottom of a Tupperware container and fill it up with enough hot water to cover the top. Drop in 2-3 denture tablets and let it sit and soak for a half hour. The fizzing will remove a lot of resin, and the formula is designed to remove stains and residue. Other alternate home cleaning solutions include:
Salt and vinegar.
Baking soda and vinegar.
Sand and water.
Purchase specialty cleaning solutions. Marketed specifically to smokers, products like Simple Green and Formula 420 are made to clean the resins in glass pipes. They are, however, a bit more expensive than the simple DIY solutions, and many people do not find them any more effective. That said, they eliminate the need for shaking or messes, as they often remove the resin through simple soaking.
Freeze the pipe to remove hard buildups. Freezing causes the resin to harden and dry up, making it easier to dislodge. Freeze the pipe for 30 minutes to an hour, then quickly use a needle or similarly sharp, thin object to knock off the resin. It will not take long for the resin to warm up and become gummy again, so you need to work quickly.
Clean your pipe regularly. A quick rinse and a soak in some isopropyl, done once a week, takes only 5 minutes. But it will keep you from having to resort to deep cleanings or overnight soakings, and keep your piece shiny and sparkling. Some stains will not come out if they soak into the glass, but this only happens if you neglect cleaning for several months or years in a row. Take the time now to clean it off and your task will be much easier in the future.
If you are going to touch the piece directly, consider some latex gloves. The mixture of alcohol and resin makes for a pungent combination that will linger on your hands.
The boiling method may fill your kitchen/house with a strong odor. Never put a cold pipe into boiling water, as it could shatter. Warm it up in your hands first. Be sure to thoroughly wash your pot once you are finished using it.
