e-cigarettes for dummies

I'm thinking of going down the e-cigarette route, but I've got a few questions I'm not sure about, in brief: 1) Is there any research out there on their effects on your health? I get that it's early days, and they've got to better than smoking, but are there side effects/dangers that I should be aware of? 2) Is there much difference between a cheap one I can buy at the supermarket, compared to an expensive one I buy on the internet? 3) What have your experiences been like with them? Is it difficult to make the jump from normal cigarettes? [more inside]

Which e-cigarette is best for my sister?

My sister wants/needs to stop smoking, so she's requested an e-cigarette for Christmas. But she's overwhelmed with choices and doesn't know which one she wants, other than that her doctor recommended she get one with no nicotine. And I know next to nothing about real cigarettes, let alone electronic ones, so I don't know where to begin looking. Can you suggest a good one? What even makes a "good" e-cigarette?

I quit smoking, but he didn't

I quit smoking about a month ago. My boyfriend wants to quit smoking, but hasn't. He's cut down quite a bit (he hasn't been smoking in the evenings), but he still smokes during the day. I know it's not easy, I thought about quitting for a long time before it actually happened, but I just feel so upset now whenever I see him light up, or if I smell smoke on him. I feel like a hypocrite! How can I get a grip on how I react and how I feel? [more inside]

Not smoking anymore and more colds than usual?

I smoked for most of my adult life. I managed to quit once before (for about 18 months) and now am on my fourth month of quitting again -- so far, so good except I seem to be getting more colds and sinus issues. I don't recall this happening last time I quit. [more inside]

How to talk to kids about relatives who smoke?

My children's adored grandmother is a smoker. She doesn't smoke in front of the kids but does take several smoke breaks a day, and while our two year old is oblivious, our four year old is probably close to figuring out what's up. Growing up, I had no relatives who smoked, and my parents pushed the "boy, smokers sure think they look cool, don't they look stupid though?" angle which worked fine on me. Obviously that isn't going to work in this case. How do you talk with young children about smoking as a Bad Thing when relatives smoke?

Help me plan my pork (loin)

Today, Costco had a decent price on boneless pork loins so I bought one.

Help me plan what to cook with part of it on Sunday, and how to process/package the rest. [more inside]

Am I about to doom myself by not using sodium nitrite in my bacon cure?

Last week, on impulse, I bought a pork belly from the farmers market. After consulting Ruhlman's Charcuterie, I realized I had no curing salt (aka Prague Powder, aka sodium nitrite) at home, and no one around me sold it. Rather than toss the belly in the freezer until I could buy some by mail (again, Impulsive Pork Belly Buyer), I found a bunch of non-curing salt cure recipes, and settled on 2.5 parts kosher salt to 1 part sugar with a heap of pepper. The belly's been sitting in the fridge for the past week. It smells fine. It feels firm. I am prepared to hot smoke it tomorrow, and now I'm panicking because of a bunch of smoker/BBQ posts I've read that say I'm dooming myself and my family to botulism. Am I? [more inside]

Shmoke and a Pancake - ECig Style

Hello Hive Mind! A few years ago I quit smoking cigarettes And I have absolutely no desire to smoke them again. But on the other hand, I miss the social aspects of smoking and enjoying it. Enter Ecigs. Mrs. NiumX and I are thinking it might be fun to get an ecig system that offers fun and interesting options with no (or low) nicotine. Flavors, whatever. Older Asks seem a few years old. What is new? So any suggestions would be great. Thanks!

Smoking Jackets for Swingin' Grade Schoolers!

Youngest Nephew (age 8) has declared that for his birthday party next week, he only wants his favorite adults to attend. We will be listening to his favorite vinyl records (he is mainly into Sinatra's Capitol years these days) and dining on omelets that he will cook for us, featuring the fancy salt and umami paste I bought his mom for Christmas. Apparently, he enjoys cooking while chomping on a bubble pipe and wearing a bathrobe that he calls his smoking jacket. This is, of course, outrageous: he must have a real smoking jacket, and his doting aunt must be the one who presents it to him. Help me help him to be Too Marvelous for Words. [more inside]

In the 1920s, was smoking indoors allowed at the NYPL?

Was smoking indoors at the New York Public Library (the main branch) ever permitted? I'm specifically interested in what the rules were during the 1920s. It seems like it would have been a terrible idea to allow it, but given the prevalence of smoking during that period, I'm curious as to if it was actually banned or not. I have been googling, but haven't been able to find anything helpful.
