Some of you may know Dr Mendelsohn (or Dr Colin as we sometimes call him) he is a very strong advocate here in Australia and a very smart and knowledgeable fella most of his advocacy work is done at his own expense (or by way of donations through ATHRA https://www.athra.org.au/ Please donate if you can). I urge you strongly to share the following link with any smokers you know or any vaper who loves great information or feel free to send a copy to your representative.
The massive issue that we as vapers have with advocacy is that for the most part, it is in an echo chamber with other vapers we need to get more information outside the circle of vapers that are already aware of the power of vaping as a quit method.
So without further waffle on my part, I will share the link to the book it is not released yet but when it is it will be available on Amazon, Book Depository, Barnes & Noble etc. Just order online and it will be delivered. Hard copy available initially, ebook later and on Dr Mendelsohn’s site.
While reading Dr. Mendelsohn’s “Vaping FAQs” on his website one of the questions he answered was “Is vaping cheaper than smoking?”
I almost fell out of my chair reading his answer…
" Australia has the highest priced cigarettes in the world. A pack a day smoker currently pays $12,775 per year for a pack of cigarettes. 20 Marlboro’s is $35.00."
Googling the exchange rate (as of today) $1.00US is $1.36AU
I smoked 2 packs a day before quitting. Holy sheeeit!!! Even back then it was getting expensive! Not even sure what a pack costs in the US nowadays.
A good book for the way it’s written. But I would write it with the title “stop smoking, go in for sports!”. Why switch from tobacco to electronic cigarettes, so you will never quit smoking. Read better physical education essay, I used https://studydriver.com/physical-education-essay/ for this. For me, it’s like a motivation. I look at healthy people, what they do, how they spend their day and I like it. I also want this, you need to change your life, and not look for an alternative.
@Letitia Me, too. It seems some folks have too much time on their hands and like to “help” others with their advice. I am thrilled that I haven’t smoked in 8+ years and so are my lungs and heart…and my doctor !!
Dr Colin has made his book free as an e-book download from his website - I know I am preaching to the converted here but you may have a stubborn friend or relative who could benefit from a copy to tip them towards vaping.
