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.

 

Thank you

Dr Konstantinos Farsalinos

Quoting KatlandKat:
When I ordered my first E Cig (Ego kit) I ordered a tobacco flavor and a sweet flavor (butterscotch), The first thing I realized is I didn't like the tobacco flavor so went straight to the butterscotch then ordered more varieties and haven't stopped checking out new flavors. I use a number of different flavors each day at different times of the day. Makes it interesting and wow after smoking so many years the tastes just blew me away. Not only am I getting to enjoy my nicotine but get to enjoy some wonderful treats on a daily basis .....can't beat that lol I buy a base mix and DIY just so I can explore more flavors and find it a fun thing to do. If flavors end up being restricted I would just do my own as I do not intend to give up nicotine or flavors.

Mirrored experience. Tabacco needs to go.

I smoked heavy for 17 year or so (20-40 a day). My first day vaping was my last day smoking (I tried many times before and failed) and I have never enjoyed straight tobbaco or menthol flavours. I like tobacco "twists" such as walnut pipe or ginger pipe but they taste nothing like bacca really. I LOVE milkshake and fruity sweet flavours (18mg for those, 20-24mg for bacca twists) I only have 4 flavours that I order regularly as I tire of them easily and I'm always trying new flavours from new vendors, my box is ALWAYS full of new juices, NONE are straight tobacco or menthol. I also usually rotate 6 different flavours at once. The vast flavours are one of the main reasons why e cigs work for smokers. Barring flavours will render the whole thing useless for me and will force me to buy liquids of unknown quality from the black market. Also, why aren't Alchopops, condoms or Blunt Wraps coming under fire as they all come in fruity, sweet flavours AND attractive colours.

Missed your survey due to early closure, so have answered below...
Smoked 25-30/day for over 30 years. Started vaping 1.11.12, & never smoked again. Flavours are so important because I and many others, now hate the taste and smell of tobacco flavour. The variety of flavours are a gateway away from tobacco, not not to it. Alcoholic flavours like apricot brandy etc are not considered in this argument, because, like e-cigarettes, sale is prohibited to under 18s. It is a 'red herring' to try to effectively ban vaping since I would say, the majority of ecig users move quickly away from tobacco flavour. A trip around my local supermarket also highlights lemon bleach, orange drain unblocker and so on. These consumer products require adults to use and store them responsibly if there are children in the house. The argument is the same for eliquid.

I kept away from the tobacco flavours intentionally, so as to disassociate myself from smoking real cigarettes (which, lets be honest, taste pretty awful) It took me a while to find a flavour that suited me. and what suited me, didnt suit my partner...no two vapers are alike... The flavourings are just as important as the nicotine, thats the reason e-cigs work.... All this ''efficacy'' nonsense is absolute tosh .......

Get over the lame excuse that flavoring in e cigs are triggering children to vape. A kid is gonna want to do adult things no matter what it is. If vaping was unflavored they would try anyway. I strongly believe vaping should NOT be a tobacco product. I don't call your gum or patches tobacco products, and neither do you. Banning or regulating vaping to the point where people can't afford ridiculous prices will hurt the public, They will go back to smoking. Think outside the money vault for once. I've been vaping for over three years now. I've overcome my chronic coughing. Vaping SAVES lives!
