How I Learned That Cigarettes Were Addictive--1970s to 1980s: A Personal History.

Lynn T Kozlowski

J Stud Alcohol Drugs 2020 11;81(6):731-737

Department of Community Health and Health Behavior, School of Public Health and Health Professions, University at Buffalo, State University of New York, Buffalo, New York.

Objective: This is a personal history of how I came to view cigarette smoking as an addiction to nicotine. I discuss working with Stanley Schachter and Murray Jarvik. Although I note the importance of Michael Russell (as do many colleagues), I draw attention to the considerable effect on my work of Edward Brecher through his 1972 book, Licit and Illicit Drugs.

JUUL use and reasons for initiation among adult tobacco users.

Tob Control 2019 11 19;28(6):681-684. Epub 2019 Jun 19.

Schroeder Institute, Truth Initiative, Washington, DC, USA.

Background: The electronic nicotine delivery system (ENDS) JUUL has quickly captured the ENDS market, representing 74.6% of the total dollar share for this category as of November 2018. Although JUUL is marketed as an alternative to cigarettes intended for current adult smokers, evidence suggests that a majority of ENDS users are concurrently current cigarette smokers. Read More

Recommended core items to assess e-cigarette use in population-based surveys.

Tob Control 2018 05 17;27(3):341-346. Epub 2017 Jun 17.

Department of Health, Behavior and Society, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Baltimore, Maryland, USA.

A consistent approach using standardised items to assess e-cigarette use in both youth and adult populations will aid cross-survey and cross-national comparisons of the effect of e-cigarette (and tobacco) policies and improve our understanding of the population health impact of e-cigarette use. Focusing on adult behaviour, we propose a set of e-cigarette use items, discuss their utility and potential adaptation, and highlight e-cigarette constructs that researchers should avoid without further item development. Reliable and valid items will strengthen the emerging science and inform knowledge synthesis for policy-making. Read More

Medical Residents' and Practicing Physicians' e-Cigarette Knowledge and Patient Screening Activities: Do They Differ?

Health Serv Res Manag Epidemiol 2016 Jan-Dec;3:2333392816678493. Epub 2016 Nov 28.

Department of Behavioral Sciences and Social Medicine, Florida State University College of Medicine in Tallahassee, Tallahassee, FL, USA.

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to compare medical residents and practicing physicians in primary care specialties regarding their knowledge and beliefs about electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes). We wanted to ascertain whether years removed from medical school had an effect on screening practices, recommendations given to patients, and the types of informational sources utilized.

Methods: A statewide sample of Florida primary care medical residents (n = 61) and practicing physicians (n = 53) completed either an online or paper survey, measuring patient screening and physician recommendations, beliefs, and knowledge related to e-cigarettes. Read More

E-cigarette specialty retailers: Data to assess the association between retail environment and student e-cigarette use.

Data Brief 2017 Apr 7;11:32-38. Epub 2017 Jan 7.

UCLA Fielding School of Public Health, Center for Cancer Prevention & Control Research, A2-125 CHS, 650 Charles Young Drive, Los Angeles 90095-6900, USA.

The retail environment is a major social determinant of health, yet little is known about the e-cigarette specialty retailer environment. The e-cigarette specialty retail environment may be associated with e-cigarette use by middle and high school students, an issue that was addressed in a recent article entitled, "E-cigarette use among students and e-cigarette specialty retailer presence near schools," by Bostean and colleagues (G. Bostean, C. Read More

E-Cigarettes-What a Practicing Cardiologist Needs to Know.

Am J Cardiol 2017 02 19;119(4):681-686. Epub 2016 Nov 19.

Columbia St. Mary's Cardiovascular Physicians, Ascension Healthcare, Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Electronic address:

Cardiologists and other physicians caring for patients who either smoke tobacco or are potential or active users of E-cigarettes have many questions about this increasingly popular method for delivering nicotine to the brain: (1) What are E-cigarettes? (2) What harm do E-cigarettes pose to users and bystanders? (3) Can E-cigarettes help tobacco smokers quit? (4) Are E-cigarettes a gateway to tobacco smoking, addicting new users, particularly the young, to nicotine? and (5) Should E-cigarettes be tolerated, or even favored over tobacco, as a less harmful substitute for those unable to stop smoking tobacco? This editorial summarizes evidence and expert opinion, preparing the physician for informed discussion of this controversial subject with their patients and colleagues. Although E-cigarettes may be less harmful than tobacco cigarettes, they are definitely not harmless. Particularly concerning are the well-financed commercial interests marketing E-cigarettes to our youth. Read More

Comments on Scheffler et al. Cytotoxic Evaluation of E-Liquid Aerosol using Different Lung Derived Cell Models. Int. J. Environ. Res. Public Health, 2015, 12, 12466-12474.

Int J Environ Res Public Health 2016 Jan 6;13(1). Epub 2016 Jan 6.

Dipartimento di Scienze Biomediche e Biotecnologiche, V.le A. Doria 6, 95125 Catania, Italy.

There is merit in considering a simple toxicological screening method that evaluates the total cytotoxic potential of e-liquids or electronic cigarettes (ECs) aerosol emissions in one single testing. However, there is growing confusion, with several researchers endorsing their personal solution to the problem. Here, we discuss as an example the recent paper by Scheffler and colleagues, in which the authors suggest that more relevant and well differentiated cell lines from human airways could be the most suitable candidates for toxicological evaluation of ECs aerosol emissions.
