Quitting Smoking? Electronic Cigarettes? Anyone have success with E Cigs?
Posted Wed Jul 17, 2013 10:03 AM
What are good, inexpensive models to get that aren't too complicated, will last without charging all the time, and don't require a lot of maintenance?
No need to say "you should quit altogether, e cigs are just as dangerous" or "e cigs are not regulated, proven, researched, etc..." I'm aware of the arguments, and am willing to take a bet that it is less dangerous and healthier than inhaling smoke and additives all day long.

The tornado is a good and cheap model, runs $40 and has many neat custom tips.
I know a great site, pm me if interested.

The secret to quitting is you have really want to do it. Then just do it. I enjoyed smoking, I had to really psych myself up to quit, that the consequences out weighed the enjoyment. It wasn't easy.
I have heard though the E-cigs have made it much easier, but you will have to apply the same mentality to quit them as well.
I haven't smoked a cig since, after about 5 years I did feel secure enough to occasionally to smoke a good cigar on occasions and still indulge in one every now and then.

the issue I found was I couldnt hold it like a regular cig as it was too heavy so I held it in my fist AND I sucked on the fucker constantly. people was actually making jokes about what they thought I would rather be doing
it didnt help me at all, gave me a sore throat and I wanted a regular cig worse then ever. I need one that is lighter so I can actually smoke it like I do regular ones I think but I havent looked into it any deeper.
I am sure you get what you pay for with the e-cigs just like anything else.

I kept looking to flick the ash then realised there wasn't any and it wasn't burning down. Felt weird to not know when your cig was finished (if that makes sense)

4-5 packs a day? Was there a waking moment you weren't smoking a cigarette???
Just an update, switched about 3 weeks ago and haven't smoked a single real cigarette since. Eventually I plan on weaning myself off of it, but so far its been easy to switch.

A carton of the cheapest is right at $40 @ two a week , I can run my Evo on that for four months .
Just to see if I kicked the habit , I took a drag off a Camel (months ago) & choked , gagged , & nearly got sick .
