Fiction: Nicotine is bad for you.
Fact: The long-term use of nicotine is exponentially safer than the use of tobacco products across the board.
Nicotine often suffers from guilt-by-association with tobacco.
According to the Centers for Control and Prevention, “The information about nicotine as a carcinogen is inconclusive.”
Those at the New York State Quitline for tobacco cigarettes say nicotine does not cause cancer.
“Q: Does nicotine cause cancer?
A: NO, Tar in cigarette smoke causes cancer. But, Nicotine is an addictive drug. It is NOT the nicotine in cigarette smoke that causes cancer. Nicotine may keep you smoking, but it is the other bad chemicals in cigarettes that make smoking so dangerous.”
A study posted online in 2009 by NCIB, US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, found that nicotine replacement therapy does not cause cancer.
The Department of Medicine at University Hospital in Tronheim, Norway preformed a study on the effect of inhaled nicotine and found no “…harmful effect of nicotine when given in its pure form by inhalation.”
According to The Consumer Advocates for Smoke-free Alternatives Association (CASAA), studies have indicated that nicotine is not a carcinogen, as a substance isolated from tobacco, containing scores of carcinogens. Nicotine does not promote the development of cancer in healthy tissue and has no mutagenic properties.
Fiction: Vaping can’t help you quit cigarettes
Fact: Vaping has helped a countless number of people say goodbye to tobacco cigarettes
The American Lung Association states in an article updated March, 2015 that the organization is “concerned about the potential health consequences of electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes), as well as the unproven claims that they can be used to help smokers quit.”
We’d like the American Lung Association to explain what is unproven about the effectiveness of vaping to the dozens of Cheaha Vapes customers who testify to the opposite.
Here’s a short list of people in our community who directly disagree with the American Lung Association’s comment.
Great Staff very friendly knowledgeable and incredibly helpful. I didn’t even know this place existed or that this was even a “thing” until yesterday but I had a great experience and even gave up an almost full pack of cigarettes. Thanks guys I still haven’t had one yet!
Without a doubt the most friendly and helpful staff.. I have been cigarette free from the moment I walked out of this store.. Very happy I was sent to this place..
Love the staff! Gives great deals, & know every answer to any question that you ask. Thanks to these guys I’ve finally quit smoking.
A coworker told me about this place and I went in just to check the (E smoke) out and got to talking with them and with all the info I got. I ended up getting me and my wife the start up kit and it’s been a month now with out a cigarette this is the best store I have found and they can answer any question you have about The e-cigarettes so go in and check it out
My bf and I were able to quit smoking due to cheaha vapes, the staff was really helpful and knowledgable which helped me feel better about transitioning to vape. They have the BEST flavors and they have testing kits so you can try them out to find your favorite. They don’t burn my throat, they taste really good and they helped us stop smoking…what more can you ask for?! Quit cigarettes and head here…they are the best in the state!
Hands down the BEST vapor shop in Oxford! I recently had a bad experience at another shop down the road and I started smoking again, but My co-worker of mine at Toyota recommended that I try these guys… I eventually made it over to see them, and it was a very laid back atmosphere. Andrew helped me out and he actually took the time to teach me about my setup and help me find the right vape for me. I haven’t touched a cigarette in over 3 months! Thank you guys!
