    Who of you guys and girls are into vaping

    Are you only using it to quit ciggies or did it become a hobby since.

    I used vape to stop smoking, I actually quit smoking for 2 months, before I slipped back into it again. Back on vaping and 2 weeks now without cigarette. Hopefully I can keep to it...

    If you are thinking of quiting, vape it does work...

    I quit smoking over 6 years ago - and started vaping about 4 years ago. Still vaping and would never go back to smoking, even if vaping became illegal...

    Basically if u have good gear(mod), nice tank, perfect flavor(match with your throat).

    You can stop smoking in just 24hr.

    The only thing that stop me vape and goes to cigs sometime, is due to laziness to setup the mod coil, cotton, cleaning etc.

    It is definitely better than smoking but obviously not smoking anything is best. I remember buying a vape for what's equal to about $8 from a friend when I was 16, I didn't really enjoy it and once the flavor ran out I just threw it away and focused on making money instead.

    Haven't they found bad things from vaping? I could have swore that I saw somewhere that they aren't as healthy as they promote themselves.

    About three months ago I started vaping. Have not had a cigarette since.

    I have Coronary Heart Disease, COPD, and two heart stents. I have also had two pulmonary embolisms in three years.

    About four years ago, my wife bought me an Ego E-Cig. I never liked it because it leaked like crazy and did not simulate a cigarette in lung and mouth sensation.

    About three months ago, I bough an Ego One CT that is capable of sub ohm vaping. I use 1 ohm atomizers in it, rather than sub ohm. Since I bought it, I have not smoked a single cigarette because the Ego On CT effectively simulates the feel and and to a lesser extent, the taste, of a cigarette and it does not leak.

    In the seven years prior to this e-cig, I had been on every smoking cessation program you can think of, including drugs like Chantix. All failed.

    I bought a half liter of 24 mg. 50/50 PG/VG juice from Oohlala in Florida. When it is gone, I plan on putting the e-cig down because the smoking habit is gone.

    Physically, I have more stamina and my chest hurts less. I can more easily smell things than I could, and food tasted different. We could mention other things as well, but it is all doctor stuff.

    Neither. I used to smoke a lot of hookah (we call it hubbly bubbly) as a teenager. It used to give me the worst headaches.

    Both cigarettes and vaping killed my throat, the couple of times I tried them. I decided it wasn't really a hobby I was interested in pursuing, so I never really got into it. I'm glad about it too.

    Like everything else, they'll probably discover in 10 years that vaping actually causes some rare form of cancer and that everyone should try the new new "safe" alternative to the former safe alternative to smoking.
