Internet survey about e-cigarettes and flavorings
There has been a lot of criticism about the availability of a variety of flavorings for e-cigarette use. Authorities have argued that the main reason for their existence is to attract youngsters. Is this true?
We now launch this internet survey, to identify how and why e-cigarette consumers use flavorings. I urge you to participate in order to understand and publish all information concerning patterns of flavorings’ use. The survey consists of 22 questions and you will need approximately 5 minutes to participate and answer to all questions
Due to lack of funding, the survey will be available for approximately 10 days. Our goal is to reach a participation of 1000 vapers. The questionnaire is available in 2 languages (English and Greek). Please participate according to your language knowledge, irrespective of your country of residence or nationality. Once again, I would like to thank the vaping community for being actively involved in our research efforts.
Update, 15 October 2013
I would like to thank all of you for participating to this survey. Due to limited resources we are closing this survey today. More than 4500 vapers answered to the questionnaire, and we are certain that very important information will be derived from it. As you know, the issue of flavorings is really controversial among health officials and we are sure this survey will contribute to better understanding how flavorings are used by vapers and what is their impact in smoking reduction or complete substitution.
