    I have smoked like 11 years 20-30 cigarettes a day. I decide to test e-cig and stop smoking. Now I have used it 2 weeks and haven't smoked any analog cigarette. It's very cool

    My e-cig is eGo-T.

    I've used one before but I found the best way is to quit completely. Does work well though

    Hi, i have the same e-cig, the eGo-T is great because it holds alot of e-liquid and the battery lasts a long time as well. The e-liquid i use is Prime 15 from Halo.
    Everybody that is trying to quit smoking should try the e-cig, but not the ones that look like real cigs (the taste is so bad and the battery life is very short) but proper ones where you can use your own e-liquid, and with so many flavours available you are bound to find the right one that suits you the most.
    And you are right, they are way better then the analog ones and the health benefits are imense because your inhaling water vapour and not real smoke.

    I heard it would be alot smoother to smoke? Anyways it's going to be banned in here (up north) in matter of few years (purity issues and toxicity, you can actually use refills of e-cigs for assasination).

    e-cigs feels like that they could be best way to decrease your hunger for nicotin... easier to doze than gum or normal cigarettes.

    I tried the blu a couple of years ago and HATED it! It never gave me enough "smoke" and after like 5 puffs the battery was dead. I decided to give the Joye 510 a try a few months ago and i LOVE it. I went with the manual because I get a better throat hit from it. The battery is amazing on it to. When I am smoking a lot it will easily last me an entire day, and when I don't smoke a lot it will last me several days to a week. Without it, I can easily go through a pack to a pack and half a day...needless to say, I was impressed!

    I tried e-cigs. I'm not a heavy smoker but, the occasional cigarette or social smoking is something I engage in. None the less I found a cheap e-cig and decided to give it a shot. I cut my smoking down 2/3 after using e-cigs.

    EX) instead of 6 cigs / day the equivalent of 2.

    I tried some cheap ones because I'm completely broke. They were nice, just didn't get enough smoke out of them, I tried covering the hole, but damn like sucking a gulf ball through a garden hose ;)

    I suspect the "better" ones (this one was only $10.00) are a lot better.

    I liked it though.

    Smokes are $10.17 a pack here (analog)

    BTW, its cool as hell smoking while I'm working and in restaurants. People give you the ugliest looks :)

    I read in a ecig forum about that happening when they need to be cleaned. A quick search on google should help you find the directions for your cig. When mine started doing that I had to replace the cartridge and clean the atomizer....then it was as good as new :D

    I prefer real cigarette, not fake cigarette. One cigarette a day is fine.

    Refills contain pure nicotin, which is extremely lethal if consumed as it is or if your skin has been with contact with it (goes through your skin easily to bloodstream).

    50-60mg of pure nicotin will kill you and if your lucky you will just go into coma and die afterwards.

    Smoking the stuff is little different cause most of the nicotin gets destroyed so you dont get poisoning from it (smoke 3 cigs straight and you should feel some unpleasent effects).

    So using this stuff for assasination is highrisk really, you get those nice refill bottles... small squirt to someones (who smokes) coffeecup and he wont notice a thing and officials will just declare it was natural death (nicotin was only found in the bloodstream and this person is a smoker = nicotin in the bloodstream anyways so the nicotin doesnt show up as poison).

    So beware if these kind of merchendise gets too popular ;) Not everyone knows how lethal it is but now you know.

    Here is some more bedtimestories: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicotine_poisoning

    I recommend using the eGo starter kit, they make good quality e-cigs.

    And go to the reddit and search for the e-cigarretes subreddit. they've got lots of useful guides and infos for beginners.

    There is no refill juice sold that is pure nicotine unless your buying pure nicotine to mix your own juices.

    Been over a year since my last analog. I use the Vulkano that is modeled like the eGo but I hate the tank so I use a drip tip.

    Just bought a real rechargable unit today. Loving the thing, only had 1 smoke today and it tasted like crap. Still looking for a good "tobacco" flavor, but I hear they are hard to come by.

    About the plastic taste, its actually burning plastic. There's these "threads" of like string inside the atomizer under the "bridge" that are used to soak up juice and get it to the heating coil. If you overheat the ecig, those strings burn (they are plastic or something like that). You have to remove them with tweezers. No more plastic :)
