Testimonials

If you have a testimonial of a health problem experienced that can be attributed by Fire Safe Cigaretes, please comment on this topic. That way people can read all of the testimonials together in one place.

I will begin. Although I experienced no health problem, it was only because I discovered what Fire Safe Cigarettes were after smoking 2 packs + 3 cigarettes (43 total) over the course of about 1 to 2 weeks. The cigarette had a foul order, tasted like some strange chemical I never tasted before, and made much smoke and seemed to want to always go out. In fact, I had to relight about 75% of the cigarettes at least one time. I noticed tightness in the chest, and my lungs burned two or three times, had headaches and felt nausea. Also in general, I felt like my health was worse. After smoking 6 years, I have never had these problems with this severity in one weeks time. Luckily, I discovered what the "FSC" cigarettes were and will not smoke them again.

Last summer I went to Illinois for a week. I bought a pack of smokes a couple days after being there not knowing anything about the FSC issue. I was experiencing headaches and thought it was due to drinking some beers as I am not a big drinker. My nephew explained what was going on with the cigarettes, so I stopped smoking until I drove back to Colorado and could buy a pack in a state without FSC.
A few months later I went to Jersey for a friends birthday, and again bought a pack of smokes a couple of days later again not knowing FSC was in Jersey. Making some calls I found a store in Delaware that still had some non-FSC smokes, so we drove to Deleware and bought several packs.
Now as of May 28, Colorado stores are stocking the poison and I bought a pack not knowing they hit Colorado yet.
All 3 occassions made it VERY clear that there is something wrong with these cigarettes, and I am certain that in 10 years or so, it will become very obvious that these FSC cigarettes are killing smokers. I am disturbed that anyone thinks this was a good idea, but I am far more alarmed that it can be done with so little regard for health and with absolutely no disclosure.

I had no idea what I have been smoking for the past 2 weeks until someone told me yesterday. I was getting sick like I was dehydrated. I started drinking water like a fish trying to fix it. I was coughing, had a sore throat, and my sinuses were bothering me. I lost my voice too. As soon as I looked this up I quit. I am BREASTFEEDING and all the studies with smoking and breastfeeding were done with non-FSC's. Yesterday was the 1st day of not smoking and all my symptoms are way better. I wonder what I have been doing to my baby these past few weeks. Thank god I only smoke 3 cigarettes a day.

I have been smoking for 25 years and always very very healthy. Recently FSC cigs came to our state (OHIO) and for the last 3-4 months I have had a sore throat. Hubby buys soft pack if he buys them for us, and I buy box if I am out and by them just for me. Wondering about this sore throat no real sickness every comes on! Very frustrating, been waking in middle of the night, drinking water trying to sooth my throat. Just yesterday it's so bad now I have sores in my throat!! I show hubby and he had de ja vue that the clerk at the gas station asked him if he wanted non FSC or FSC..and told him many people in our neighborhood have been complaining of different symptoms. AHHHH makes total sense now. If I can get these sores to go away I will be happy. If I cannot get non fsc cigs I quit because they will surely kill me. Damn gov't trying to kill us!!!!

I have been a pack a day smoker of Camel filtered cigarettes for about eighteen years. Until I began smoking the FSC Camels I had never experienced anything close to the kind of coughing and upper respiratory congestion I currently have. I am literally coughing all day now. There is no question in my mind as to what is causing this. I recently found a store that had some older (pre-fsc) cartons and my coughing went away within the first two days. Unfortunately I have not been able to find anymore. There is no doubt in my mind this cough is a direct result of the fsc cigarettes. Furthermore, I have also found that the fsc cigarettes leave a salt taste in my mouth that will not go away.

Ethylene-vinyl acetate is evil.
It's evil and it does not work. If you just sit and watch a cigarette burn you will notice the paper stops burning but the tobacco keeps burning. So what is the purpose except to make some folks rich and other folks sick. Funny how they increase taxes thinking every smoker will continue to smoke and they will get funds for this or that project. They love us and they hate us. Smokers have no rights. Their complaints fall in deaf ears as smoking has been successfully demonized over the years. What's next folks?
Perhaps some chemical added to your beer or wine so that the consumer does not get the buzz and it of course is for the "greater good" and "the public safety". How about a drink of ethylene-vinyl acetate so yummy in drinks.. well they won't add that to drinks but someone right now is developing something on that order... for all you sinful folks.
Never has special interest groups so successfully taken hold and they are not letting go with just
ethylene-vinyl acetate.

I am in Sydney, Australia. I have been smoking close to 40 years, i am healthy, visit the doctor once a year for an annual health check to make sure i am still alive because anti-smoking statistics say i should have died 10 years ago and i smoke cigarettes in public but i do like a pipe, cigars (Cubans especially) and will try just about any foreign brand tobacco product because i simply like smoking. We are in the process of changing to FSC cigarettes which will be fully phased in around September 2010. I bought a packet of Benson & Hedges Classic (made by BAT) 2 weeks ago as i had left my other cigarettes at home and noticed a horrible taste something like soap or glue or some chemical and i was gagging and felt like i was going to vomit every time i had a cigarette. I thought i was starting to get sick with the flu or a head cold so i dismissed it until i heard about these new FSC cigarettes which were being introduced by the Australian Government and from what i have read it is to save 14 (yes 14) deaths a year from fire related accidents like people falling asleep while smoking in bed and so on. A dumb thing to do in any case. When i got home i compared the cigarette packets to see what the difference was and the only thing i could see was some small print at the bottom rear of the packet saying they were Fire Safety Approved. Lighting up one of each cigarette and smoking both of them confirmed it was the FSC cigarette. I checked out the BAT web site in Australia to try and find out what they had done to the cigarettes but couldn't find any info on their website, Our anti-smoking laws here are more restrictive than a communist country internet filter. I even ripped apart one of each cigarette to compare them and noticed the only difference was in the paper. After a bit of googling for FSC cigarettes i learnt about the technology. I was back to my normal non-FSC cigarettes by then and decided to use myself as a guinea pig and try smoking these FSC cigarettes over the weekend. What i ended up with was an extremely dry and sore throat, constant coughing, minor headache and nausea and a feeling of irritability similar to giving up smoking (nicotine withdrawal). On the Monday i went back to the non-FSC cigarettes and it is now Wednesday and the throat is getting better and i am generally getting back to my old self again. These FSC cigarettes are POISON so i will be sticking to cigars from now on and public and government be damned if they don't like the strong cigar smell. Being a long term smoker i do enjoy the many different tobacco products i try from all over the world and i have put up with smoking bans continually intruding into my lifestyle and right to use a legal product but when a government AND tobacco companies set out to literally kill their revenue makers and customers slowly and painfully then that just about breaches my tolerance. I also emailed BAT in Australia about this and have received no reply. Nice customer service BAT!. Also, at the garage where i purchased the FSC cigarettes i made comment about the horrible taste and it seems i was not the only one. Many people were wanting to look at the packet before purchasing cigarettes to make sure they were buying non-FSC cigarettes. I sadly have lost all respect for these tobacco companies .

We desperately need to file a class action lawsuit on the grounds that they are disreguarding our constitutional rights! Our Government went completely behind our backs and I, for one, will not tolerate their dishonest, backdoor tactics! We need to stand together and sue the hell out of them so we can have our rights back!!!!
