SHELBY COUNTY, Ohio (WDTN) — They don’t look like much, but those at the Shelby County Jail say they’ve seen some big changes because of them.

For the last two years, the Shelby County Jail has been offering inmates the option to buy Electronic Cigarettes or E-Cigarettes from the jail commissary.Inmates Vaping

Officials say it’s made for a safer jail.

“It has reduced issues within the jail, fighting, contraband coming into the jail such as regular cigarettes,” says Chief Deputy James Frye with the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office.

Those in Shelby County believe they’re the only county in the state that offers the E-Cigarettes.

We asked about the cost of the program. They say it actually brings in money, about $17,000 in 2014.

Frye says the E-Cigarettes keep smokers from being agitated because of withdrawal symptoms.

“They’re not bad,” says inmate Thomas Borland. “They help curb the need for a cigarette. I’ve been smoking for 20 years now at least and it helps out a lot. It really does.”

We got a look at what’s inside the jail’s E-Cigarettes.

They’re made by a company specifically for the jail to make sure the materials can’t be used as a weapon.

“There’s nothing in here that can be harmful to the jail itself or a corrections officer,” Frye says.

One of the controversy’s over E-Cigarettes is whether the vapors can be harmful if breathed in second hand.

From what we’ve found, experts are mixed on whether it’s a problem.

“It’s like anything else,” Frye says. “I’ve talked to a doctor and they’ve said those are better for you than a regular cigarette because they don’t contain the toxins of a regular cigarette.”

The Choice to Smoke or Quit Smoking

Each of our lives are actually the result of our choices.   Yes we choose most of the things in life.   We choose what we are going to wear, what we are going to eat, who are life partner will be, what are career will be, and yes it is a choice that is made to smoke or quit smoking.

Yes you choose to smoke or not to smoke.  Cigarettes do not find their own way into your mouth.  You have made the choice to place each cigarette you have ever smoked into your mouth.  You even made the choice to buy the cigarettes at the store.   Why not make the choice to use Vaping, instead of smoking cigarettes?

Vaping Ecigs is almost the same as using analog cigarettes.  The battery heats up the e-liquid and produces a water vapor.

From the time you first have an urge for a cigarette you make choices that lead to the eventual smoking of that cigarette.   You take your money to the store and purchase a pack of cigarettes that was your choice.   You open the pack of cigarettes and remove one, light it, and smoke it that was your choice.  How many times have you made that special trip to the store just to purchase cigarettes?  Now wasn’t that a lot of work for a pack of cigarettes.

You want a cigarette and you are out.   You could choose to not go buy that new pack today rather than going to all that work just to get a pack of cigarettes.   Why not decide or rather choose to quit smoking right then.   What better time could there be?

Our lives really are the after effect of all the choices we make on a daily basis.  And practically all of the choices we make with complete freedom to choose what we want.  Ecigs and vaping offer the freedom to vape anywhere and anytime you want to.

These choices can bring us prosperity or poverty; make us sad or happy, satisfied or dissatisfied and a smoker or non-smoker.

Your choice to not smoke could be influenced by the desire to have good health, improve your financial situation, not smell like smoke, or have more energy.  When you decide to quit smoking you need to choose things to replace smoking when you experience cravings.  You could exercise, visit with a member of your support team, chew gum, eat a healthy snack, and do something to help someone else.   Make your own set of choices to replace smoking in your life.

You don’t just wake up with a cigarette in your mouth.  You make choices that place that cigarette in your mouth and you can use this same power of choice to choose to not smoke.  Remember you do have a choice.   Will you choose to continue smoking or will you choose to quit smoking today?

Give electronic cigarettes a try today!  You will love them!

Stop Hurting yourself and Quit Smoking

Stop Hurting yourself and Quit Smoking

One good reason to stop smoking is to stop the hurt that it causes.   Yes your decision to quit smoking can stop the hurt to you and others.  What better reason could there be to make your decision today.

Hurting Yourself – Quit Smoking:

First you must recognize that smoking is an addiction that causes multiple health issues.  Tobacco products contain nicotine, which is an addictive drug.   The addictive nature of nicotine can make it very difficult to quit smoking.  It has been stated that Nicotine is stronger than many other drugs that some individuals would never consider taking.  That is where you might consider turning to Vaping Ecigs!

Often people measure the harmfulness of a product by the number of deaths it causes.  So let’s take a look this, over 400,000 deaths occur in the United States each year as a result of a smoking related disease.  It is a known fact that smoking significantly increases your risk for lung cancer and other types of cancer.   It is a reality smoking is not healthy for you.  The many affects of smoking is astounding?

When you smoke you are hurting yourself.  There is no question at all about this. The question would be what you are going to do about it?  Have you seriously considered Vaping instead of Smoking?

Hurting Others – Quit Smoking:

Yes, smoking does hurt others besides your self.   It can affect your family and others who breathe the smoke created by your cigarettes; this is known as second hand smoke. Second hand smoke is very dangerous and you should consider carefully the harm you are causing to others when you smoke.  Sadly to say most of the time second hand smoke is affecting those you truly care about the most your family, children and friends.  Of course, there is no smoke when Vaping.  It’s simply liquid that is heated into a “water vapor”…

Secondhand smoke is responsible for about 300,000 cases of bronchitis and pneumonia in children under the age of 18 months of ages each ear.  Secondhand smoke from a parent smoking increases the child’s risk for middle ear conditions and creates problems with asthmatic conditions including coughing and wheezing.

In homes where both parents smoke a teenager has twice the risk of smoking than homes where both parents are nonsmokers.   Even in homes with only one parent smoking the teenager is more likely to start smoking.

Smoking during pregnancy increases the risk for low birth weights which will affect the health of the infant.   If all pregnant women stopped smoking during their pregnancy there would be 4000 less babies to die each year.

If you continue to smoke you are hurting yourself and others.  I urge you to consider Ecigs, instead of Analog cigarettes….
