CDC Now Running Anti Smoking Ads Featuring E Cigs

e cig

A new anti-smoking ad released by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will feature a lung-collapse survivor who cites both e-cigarettes and tobacco cigarettes — but an advocate for e-cigarettes calls the ad “patently dishonest.”

The ad is part of the CDC’s “Tips” campaign, which has become known for using real smokers to show the grotesque effects of smoking. It marks the first time one of the ads will feature a person who cites e-cigarettes.

The print and radio ad features a 35-year-old Tennessee woman named Kristy who took up e-cigarettes to help her quit smoking regular cigarettes and to get rid of her “smoker’s cough.”

“I tried e-cigarettes, but I just ended up using both the electronic kind and my regular brand,” she said in the ad.

After starting e-cigarettes, Kristy didn’t give up smoking tobacco cigarettes and said she eventually went back to smoking regular cigarettes. Months after using e-cigarettes, she ended up in the hospital with a collapsed lung and signs of early COPD, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder.

At that point, according to the ad, Kristy was able to finally give up tobacco. In the ad, Kristy said she hopes her story inspires others to stop smoking before it’s too late.

“I can actually breathe,” she said. “I can play with my kids. When I smoked, I had no energy. It just affected my whole life.”

Advocates for e-cigarettes and other vaping devices said the ad is misleading and that it mistakenly connects the tobacco products with the e-cigarette.

“It just continues the CDC’s several-year quest to mislead smokers into believing that vaper products [including e-cigarettes] may be hazardous to the health of smokers,” said Gregory Conley, the president of the American Vaping Association, which advocates for small- and medium-sized vaping-related companies. “The clear implication in the new CDC ad is that the use of vaper products somehow contributed to the disease suffered by the smoker in the ad. That’s patently dishonest.”

A CDC spokeswoman said the ad is aimed at smokers between the ages of 18 to 54 and that the ad is designed to show that mixing e-cigarettes with tobacco products is “not an effective way to safeguard your health.”

But CDC Director Dr. Tom Frieden released a statement Thursday that said the ad campaign’s real-life stories can inspire others to quit tobacco products.

“These former smokers are helping save tens of thousands of lives by sharing their powerful stories of how smoking has affected them,” he said.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced a proposal last year to regulate e-cigarettes that would require manufacturers to disclose product ingredients and put warning labels on

Discover how easy it can be to get fit and healthy at any age with hypnosis…

We hear it all of the time, people say, “I just can’t eat the way I used to” or “every time I go on a diet I lose a little bit of weight and then put it right back on plus some.”  So, you may be asking; why is it so much more difficult to lose weight as you get older and what are some things that you can do to take back control over your weight and quality of life?

According to the American Geriatrics Society, there are specific biological changes that occur in the body that can lead to weight gain as a person ages.  Among these changes are a decrease in lean muscle mass and increase in body fat which leads to a slow down in the metabolism, hormonal changes that occur during menopause and an increase in cortisol levels during times of stress that lead to an increase in appetite. With all of these obstacles it may seem like a lost cause but there is hope!

Daniel S. Vitchoff, MS Ed., CHt.  is a Board Certified and Licensed Hypnotherapist in Pittsburgh, PA and President of PA Hypnosis Center who specializes in helping his clients improve their health and quality of life at any age.  Vitchoff’s hypnosis methods and techniques, “The 33 Method” have been proven to be safe and effective and can help you eliminate cravings for sugar, sweets and carbohydrates and increase your motivation and desire to exercise.

Dan Vitchoff helped Joe from West Virginia quit smoking and lose over 70 pounds and he says, “After investigating all of the options, I chose PA Hypnosis Center because of their 98% Success Guarantee.

Inspiration for a 2012 New Years Resolution to Stop Smoking

As the New Year approaches approximately 75% of Americans will give up on their New Year’s Resolutions within the first week of January.  New Year’s Resolutions always seem like a great idea at the time but very few people are actually able to convert their New Year’s Resolutions into lifelong healthy habits.  Thousands of people have already discovered that hypnosis may be the key to making positive, permanent lifestyle changes and turning your New Year’s Resolutions into permanent successes.  Joe Balog from West Virginia has been smoke free now for two and a half years.  Joe Balog began working with Dan Vitchoff, Board Certified Hypnotherapist and President of PA Hypnosis Center in Pittsburgh, PA in November of 2007 with a goal to quit smoking, now, five years later, leading up to 2012 he is still going strong!

 He had been smoking for over 17 years and had tried just about everything else to quit smoking and nothing worked.  He even tried a group hypnosis session and wasn’t able to quit.  Joe’s mom, Bernice was looking around on the Internet and found PA Hypnosis Center’s website, and decided to call and find out more information.  When she called, she was pleased to find out that she and Joe could come in for a Free Consultation and Evaluation to learn more about how they could reach their goals with hypnosis.  Joe and Bernice came in for their Consultation and were impressed by how relaxing the office was and how professional the staff was.  Dan talked to both of them about what “a day in the life of…” looked like for each of them and asked them what they wanted to accomplish.  Even though Joe wanted to lose weight and quit smoking, he decided to participate in a Hypnosis Smoking Cessation Program first and then work on the weight loss second. 

Joe’s first session allowed him to wrap his mind around the idea that he was going to live the rest of his life as a non-smoker and his second session was his quit day.  On Joe’s Quit Day, he left PA Hypnosis Center’s office is Pittsburgh, PA as a Non-Smoker free of cravings and desires and finally free from cigarettes!  After Joe successfully quit smoking he decided to participate in a Hypnosis Weight Loss Program to improve his health and have more energy.  Now, two and a half years later; not only is Joe Balog a Non-Smoker; he has also lost 70 Pounds.  What Joe did is an amazing accomplishment!  It can be difficult enough to quit smoking or lose 70 pounds but to do both is truly inspiring.  With Dan Vitchoff and PA Hypnosis Center’s help, Joe was able to turn his life around and improve his quality of life; he has more energy and his family is thrilled with his success.
