    I was a smoker for 10 years until I came across electronic cigarettes and it's been the only thing that has worked for me. I smell good, feel good and my wife stopped bitching at me for smoking in the house!!

    Does anyone else vape?

    Awesome for you. That is just great news. I know how hard it is to give it up, my brother smokes and just can not go a day without them. Best of luck to you on this.

    I never understood the nicotine addiction, but good for you I guess.

    I actually recently started vape.... I haven't completely quit smoking, but I smoke outside and vape inside. The thing I like is that it feels like you are really smoking, and the smoke (steam) is an awesome effect. The only thing I don't like is the vape cigs (the ones I am getting anyways) are too big. It feels like I am smoking a blunt lol.


    Edit: A quote from my good friend Oldsalt "You can only quit one day at a time"

    I actually quit smoking 4 years ago and haven't smoked one since. I had thought of 'vaping' but was worried about the 'slippery slope' and didn't want to go back to smoking... PERIOD.

    BUT... still... every time I passed someone smoking, I would be tempted - even after 4+ years... but just for 5-10 seconds. Then I would continue on my way without thinking about it.

    A friend smokes and I saw him vaping one day - and asked about it. After getting more info, I decided to get a disposable. I liked it and looked around - found smoketip.com (note - not an affil link, just where I bought my e-cigs at a good price). Got a kit and 3 packs of 10 'atomizers'. I like the Cowboy (like Marlboro brand) and even have got some flavored... Coffee is nice too. An atomizer lasts me more than a week and I enjoy taking a 'puff' as I'm driving, sitting at the computer, even at the university taking classes. Noone cares and now when I pass a smoker, I am not tempted at all...

    Personally, for me - it's a pure win. Congrats Tony on quitting as well!

    PS. I think one of the reasons it works so well for me was that I haven't smoked a real cigarette for so long. So I know it's heavier and a little diff than a real cigarette but it doesn't bother me. ;-)

    My sister, her husband, and two friends of mine have all swapped to vaping after my sister tried it and loved it so much. I've never smoked and have always hated cigarettes but I love the smell of her e-cig (she uses juice like Cupcake, Blueberry Cheesecake, Watermelon, etc).

    The great thing about vaping is that you can gradually back down the amount of nicotine you smoke until 6mg or even 0mg and still enjoy it.

    I'm currently using "Snus" which most of you probably don't know what is, but I would love to test ecigs even though they're illegal in my country for some reason...

    There are lots of ecigs that are the same shape and feel as regular cigarettes. I work in the niche so feel free to PM me (don't want to promote here) if you want more info - and good choice to make the switch :) (I still miss smoking terribly, but every time I look at my young daughter, the reason I made the change, I feel good about it.)

    It's funny but this thread already looks like a Smokers Annonymous meeting so I'll jump right into it with my story
    I smoked cigarettes for 15 years and last summer I bought a ecig without to much serious thoughts about it but I started to like to vape more and more
    and for the last 3 month I didn't smoke cigarettes at all, I only vape now and I dropped the nicotine from 24mg to 16mg.
    I have a 1000 A battery which lasts for around 24 hours so I don't have to carry the charger with me all over the place. I like it.

    Good for you! I know a few of my buddies want to "try" to stop smoking, maybe I see what they think of electronic cigarettes.

    Congratulations!

    So it's legal to smoke real cigarettes, but not e-cigs? strange...
