So now they come for the E smokers.

Just received this in my inbox. It's not about health is it? It's all about maximising revenue.


The E-NI/E.Cig Market is under direct threat from government legislation that would make the Selling of nicotine containing products illegal.

Please see the link for full details on the MHRAs Public consultation Document (MLX 364): The regulation of nicotine containing products


1. As from the 21st June 2010 all selling of un-licensed nicotine products (E.liquids, Pre Filled Cartridges Containing Nicotine) will be banned. Companies such as The Electronic Cigarette Company and Totally Wicked would be shut down by Trading Standards.

2.It will leave you with no other option but to either start smoking again, go cold turkey or buy risky nicotine products from overseas.


There are a number of pro-active steps you  AS AN INDIVIDUAL can take.. Please do not let apathy overtake you…We aren’t.

1. Write a full Testimony in long hand of how E-Nis/E.Cigs have helped you, The health benefits, the Emotional Benefits, Benefits to your family and friends, the cost savings. In this testimony highlight the effect this ban would have on YOUR life. Be accurate, forthright and rationale. Upload and then Email a signed and dated copy to accounts @

2. Send  a hardcopy via recorder delivery letter to Amanda Bryan, MHRA, Room 14-212, Market Towers, 1 Nine Elms Lane, London, SW8 5NQ

3. Sign this online petition and add your comments.

4. Respond directly to the MHRA via their response to MLX 364 online form

5. Contact your MP and GP, let them know how this ban will impact your health and your life.
Remember your voice is important, we cannot allow this legislation to be passed. It is destructive and ill thought out.

They really can't leave us alone. Can they.

Day 183 of my captivity

My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects. They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while I am forced to eat dry cereal. The only thing that keeps me going is the hope of escape, and the mild satisfaction I get from ruining the occasional piece of furniture.

Tomorrow I may eat another house plant.

Today my attempt to kill my captors by weaving around their feet while they were walking, almost succeeded; must try this at the top of the stairs next time. In an attempt to disgust and repulse them, I again induced myself to vomit on their favourite chair. (Note-to-self: I think I'll try urinating under their bed, too. Wonder how long it'll take them to find it?)

Decapitated a mouse and brought them the headless body, to make them aware of what I am capable of, and to try to strike fear into their hearts. They only cooed and condescended about what a good little cat I was. Not working according to plan.

There was some sort of gathering of their accomplices. I was placed in solitary confinement throughout the event. However, I could hear the noise and smell the food.
More importantly I overheard that my confinement was due to MY power of "allergeez." Must learn what this is and how to use it to my advantage.

I am convinced the other captives are flunkies and may be snitches. The dogs are routinely released and seem more than happy to return. They must obviously be half-wits.

The bird, on the other hand, appears to have become an informant, and speaks with them regularly. I am certain he reports my every move. Due to his current placement in the metal room, his safety is preserved. But I can wait; it's only a matter of time...
