I quit smoking with the evidence-based tool of vaping, and as an addiction counselor I help others do the same. Public Health England would celebrate me, yet here I am stigmatized and shamed. Why are our countries so different?
Richard Bottner

We will share the code in just a few slides, thanks!

Cas Adams

Vague “stressful issues”
Joyce Swetlick
01:54:45
He had not used cocaine or heroin for about two years
Claudia Matos
01:54:49
"but now with aches all over his body..."
Joyce Swetlick
01:54:51
instead of he had been clean
Claudia Matos
01:54:54
but now is so weird.
Claudia Matos
01:55:07
I don't know what pan-positive means
Joyce Swetlick
01:57:01
What is pan positive?

abuser, junkie
Eunice Chai
01:57:35
"addicts, abuser, junkie"
Linda Bundick
01:57:37
How much is "extensive?"
Joyce Swetlick
01:57:49
OMG! Denies should not be ok
Cara DalCanton
01:57:54
also says he denies implying he's lying
Joyce Swetlick
01:58:10
Denies implies this idea of "people HAVE TO ADMIT they have a problem" or that the person might be lying to you or denying something they are accused of
Claudia Matos
01:58:52
"Appears hes been using a lot" assumption
Linda Bundick
01:58:54
non-cooperative
Sandi Pontius
01:58:58
non-cooperative. Appears
Susan Stone
01:59:02
non-cooperative, appears to be using a lot, drug-seeking behavior
Claudia Matos
01:59:06
relapser!
Claudia Matos
01:59:09
?!!
Joyce Swetlick
01:59:09
Omg, all caps????
Cas Adams
01:59:11
otherwise... unremarkable...
Linda Bundick
01:59:11
Chronic relapser
Susan Stone
01:59:17
NEEDS TO STOP USING HEROIN
Joyce Swetlick
01:59:40
Is non-cooperative judgmental.... yes I think its better to use descriptive language that helps people
Joyce Swetlick
02:00:01
rather than letting all the nurses on the unit know... HEY THIS PERSON IS NON-COOPERATIVE, so go ahead and be adversarial with them be wary of them
Joyce Swetlick
02:00:16
Its gonna just entrench that all further, rather than saying, "patient did not want to...." yadda yadda
Joyce Swetlick
02:00:20
which would be descriptive
Fr. Jack Kearney
02:10:38
Doesn't forbidding smoking instead of helping smokers quit actually add to the stigma? Doesn't it also violate the ethical mandate of autonomy? "We won't help you unless you quit smoking first" sounds like a denial of medical care.
Joyce Swetlick
02:13:21
Anyone who has ever tried to quit smoking, drinking alcohol, or using other substances knows how hard it is to quit when other people are using around you. It is ok to have environments that are their to support people with quitting
Joyce Swetlick
02:13:36
The problem is on how you promote adherence ot the policy, you can be punitive with any rule
Joyce Swetlick
02:13:45
but its not a reason not to have boundaries to protect people's health

Great question!
Sandi Pontius
02:28:27
nicotine addict?
Joyce Swetlick
02:28:57
If anything, the success we've had with reducing tobacco use compared to illicit drugs speaks to how important NOT stigmatizing people is, we can't have that success with other drugs because of the stigma
Sandi Pontius
02:29:53
People who smoke are victims of the tobacco industry's deceptive marketing. They are not bad people.
Louise Katz

Non-smoker vs. I am a person in recovery from tobacco dependence!
Nick Fradkin
02:30:44
THANK YOU for your responses! I noticed NIDA's Word Matter page doesn't include "smoker" -> "person who smokes." If anyone wants to collaborate on research in this area, please let me know - nick.fradkin@doh.wa.gov

Recovering nicotine addict is what I call myself

Joyce Swetlick

Another example: A study called Stigma at Every Turn, where pharmacists were refusing to sell clean syringes to people who were trying to more safely inject drugs, they wouldn't sell it because of stigma. Yet those same pharmacists would definitely have sold tobacco to anyone, stigma is harmful for EVERYONE who uses any substance, but the stigma towards people who use heroin is not comparable to people who use tobacco, and that helps us when we try to help people quit smoking

No one has gotten "popcorn lung" from vaping. Some people have gotten sick from adulterating commercial eliquid.
