"PLEASE repeal this law! They have caused me to have headaches, sores on my lips, nausea, confusion (which has almost cost my job) &insomnia; in addition they are MORE of a hazzard than the non FSC type. I have experienced them flaming up to 3 inches high & flaming a halo all around when lit, the lit cigarette popping-sending glowing embers in all directions & the entire lit cherry fall out. In addition they taste bad. This is NOT the 1st time our government has perpertrated a determite to the health of it's people. WE HAVE TO STOP THIS NOW--NOT 20 YEARS FROM NOW--WHEN THE DIRTY DEED IS EXPOSED!"
"I have been a smoker for to many years, but the fire safe cigarettes actually had me smoking much more than I ever did. As much as 2 packs or more a day and always feeling sick to my stomach at the end of the day. Coughing and sore throats morning and night. Then came panic attacks and depression which I never had before in my life, and now I'm suffering with insomnia. I finally quit smoking in February 2010 after 35 years of smoking. I'm currently scheduled to see a doctor the end of November because I may have COPD ... I used to enjoy a smoke, now I may have to pay the rest of my life for all that enjoyment."
"These thing are more dangerous than non fire safe Cig's the head falls off when your smoking them a certain way (I see a Law suit Coming) they cause headaches I didn't get with the old cigs, they are making a bad thing worse!!!!!!!"
"I am so dissapointed that my life is invaluable to the government. How Damn selfish to add a chemical without our consent! You can go to www.stateline.org , which I am sure is one of many sites , that give an account to what this has done to people! This many people are not making this up!I never felt the way I did before this terrible thing you've done. You are sick bastards to have done this. Even more so without giving us a choice you hipocrits! We are not animals to be slaughtered! we simply choose to purchase and enjoy somthing that you government made avilable to us. Take this away now! I hope that noone who has agreed to this will have peace until cigarettes are returned exactly back to the way they were. You LIARS , this is not for our safety. You dont drug alchol to stop drunks from driving, you dont regulate the purchase of guns to prevent death......there are so many more examples I could give, Shame on you, Shame I say!"
"These ciggeretts started to affect my throat and then I got blisters on my tounge from them they also affected my lips blisters and gave me headaches! Stop experimenting on us with Carpet GLUE!"
"FSC are making me sick, I know smoking is bad for me but I don't need additional chemicals making me even sicker"
"I have had a horrifying cough for the last week due to the FSC, USA Gold lights- Mind you, I have only smoked off and on for about 9 years now, however NEVER had this cough. Itís literally got me as sick as ever! Smoking my brand is definitely not enjoyable anymore than shoving a piece of glass into my esophagus! I am actually in the process of contacting an attorney regarding the issues Iíve been having, and someoneís going down for this. I do believe the government did something to kill us off slowly, trust me- more money for them."
"FSC are more toxic so obviously the FDA government is trying to make us sick or kills us. This is murder making a dangerous product even more dangerous."
"They made me sick and the government ruined my favorite cigarette with more poison just to save 900 idiots every year who didnt put their cigarette out."
"None of us need a higher percentage of harmful chemicals in our cigarettes. I've noticed a big difference in my breathing and health since being forced to smoke these FSC cigarettes. I'm trying to quit but until then, I don't want to forced with the additional percentage of chemicals in my cigarettes. Shouldn't there be a warning about this addition and change on the cigarette packs?"
"fsc is making me sick. severe headaches teeth hurting, severe swelling of tongue and mouth."
"i was wondering why the doctors can't figure out why i can't breathe even though my lungs are clear !"
"When the fsc first come out I thought it was a good thing because I always burned so many cigarettes up in the ash tray. However within a short time I found that when put in the ashtray they still burned up and when I was trying to smoke the fsc they would go out or the fire would just fall off. I have more problems with my breathing now than ever. It is my choice whether I smoke not."
"Been smoking 15yrs now, since 13, im 28, since i have been smoking fsc for 2yrs now, i have noticed a big change on my lung capacity, less, and I get more of a "poison" feeling now when i smoke, but Im addicted, great to be addicted to a drug that now you must intake with plastics and co-polyimers, thank you careless fire people, we(the rest of us) will die with plastic lungs for you!"
"became ill shortly after the introduction of FSC cigarettes in Minnesota. It started with lung irritation, coughing, wheezing, headaches, ear infections and chronic skin irritations. Within 7 months my immune system was so degraded that I had to be hospitalized and treated for a mysterious infection the cause of which is still unknown. I started researching about the FSC cigarette chemicals after a friend told me about it. I've been rolling my own for about 2 months now and guess what???? My ear infections and skin irritations are gone. My lungs feel better and so do I. This deliberate government imposed poisoning must be stopped!"
"I've ben smokin newports for about 8 years now....and ive noticed over the last year...ive been wakin up with enormous amounts of phlegm and the tast is disgustiing."
"I personally enjoy smoking and have no plans to quit any time soon... But these "fire-safe" are accelerating the deterioration of my health and have begun to make me wheeze chronicly even after I cut down to 5-10 a day. Not to mention they taste absolutely terrible now. Manufactured cigarettes have enough chemicals in them."
"These things are more hazardous than non FSC cigarettes. I am constantly burned by the increased embers falling off my cigarette when it reaches the "Speed Bump" than I have ever been burned by anything else in my life! And I used to work as a grill cook at an restaurant!!! These gotta go!!! Not to mention they cause me headaches, nausea, a metallica taste in my mouth, and I just can't keep my mouth hydrated anymore."
"I had a feeling something was wrong with these FSCs. I thought it was in my head. Now i know. The Government is trying to kill us all so that they wont have to live with the health care costs. Thats Obamacare at its finest."
"They have caused me to have headaches nause and also they leave a bad taste in your mouth . instead of this helping people they are making us sicker."
"These FSC cigarettes hurt you,re throat and lungs. When smoking non fsc cigarettes, I don,t have this problem at all."
"Making me so sick. Had no idea what was wrong and then looked this up and everyone else is having SAME issues!"
"Now realize why I had such constant headaches and nausea as of late."
"I have had headaches, sinus problems, and have suffered depression over the past 12 months. Right about the time I started smoking these fsc (f***ing stupid cigarettes). I bought out the last packs that didn't have the fsc just to stay away from these. I have finally started roll your own cigarettes which are more of a fire hazard than the fsc to alieve my symptoms. Notice during the midst of fsc coming onto the market the roll your own cigarettes recieved a huge tax hike from our uncle sam. trying to kill off the poor while taking there last nickel.. put a stop to this!!!!!!"
"My husband has recently been diagnosed with what they think is Parkinsons disease-after reading this website I don't buy it. He is a smoker age 42-for one his symptoms started the same time FSC cigs were forced on us-and for two he is young to have Parkinsons(not unheard of but rare). He has had tremors on one side of his body, loss of balance and muscle atrophy, loss of coordination. Maybe its a coincidence but I hardly think so. We need to stop the production of FSC cigs asap. The chemical used is damaging the health of millions of people and they don't even realize it!"
"Thank you, government, for not reviewing the long-term health risks of adding a more substantial amount of carpet glue to my cigarettes. The only thing this was based on was a Harvard study that, of course, found nothing wrong with it. WHY ARE SO MANY PEOPLE SICK FROM THIS? WHY DO CIGARETTES MAKE MY MOUTH TASTE METALLIC AND WHY DO THEY TASTE STALE NOW? This is disgusting. REVIEW THE FACTS. MAKE A BETTER "FIRE-SAFE" CIGARETTE. Is there some conspiracy going on here?"
"I have been to the doctor every month this year with all of the above symptons. I thought I was going "crazy" I thought I was having a heart attache b/c my chest hurt so bad, coughing, dizzines, nausea and the list goes on. I have statements for every visit and it is all the same. I had to take a leave at work because I could not take it anymore! Where do I need to call to retain a lawyer? We should sue them....."
