Got it today! This thing rocks - I definitely recommend it to anyone that's trying to quit or doesn't want to get cancer. I also recommend a PG based e-fluid...feels exactly like a normal cigarette.
I don't mean to threadjack, but I just wanted to pop in to let anyone who's considering buying an e-cig know that I haven't smoked a normal cigarette since I got mine, and I was a pack-a-day smoker. I think it's been about three weeks. I can already tell a drastic difference in my lung capacity. Thanks a ton, Bee II.
Just want to thank you guys as reading this thread has convinced me to try this when I get back from coachella. I can go days or weeks without smoking but if I start drinking, the urge hits and I can't seem to quit. It's 100% mental for me so I think just holding something and letting out "smoke" will soothe my cravings. Such good info on here.
thanks for all the tips guys. i am proud to say that i have quit smoking on a day to day basis (was up to 1/2 a pack a day at one point), but the second i start drinking or partying, it is all i want...
the only question i had is how strong are you guys ordering nicotine wise? i always smoked lights, so i was thinking either the 8mg or 12mg juice?
drinking is the one thing that still triggers me into wanting a regular cigarette and sometimes I'll actually have one or two just to be social, ESPECIALLY if my battery is dead or a cute boy is offering, lol.
as for the strength, it's not based on if you smoked lights, mediums or regulars. it's based on the number of cigarettes you smoked each day. I was a pack and a half smoker at my peak so I started off with the 35mg strength and I'm using 18mg now. I think 24mg is the strongest most places have now and that should be more than adequate for a half a pack smoker like yourself.
I would just start at a higher strength (18 or 24) and then bring yourself down to low or even zero nicotine when you're ready. I think the higher strength is what helped me to stop smoking cigarettes in the first place.
thanks scenicworld! put my orders in today... now i can't wait till it all comes in
no problem! I'll look forward to your full report when your order comes in
Congrats to all of you who have made the decision to quit smoking.
Research has shown that the nicotine in e-cigs doesn't really have an effect on helping people to quit. Basically, you could put in water and it would have as much of an effect in helping you quit.
i quit with the patch. the cheap target brand ones. gives you some crazy dreams when you fall asleep with them on.
Years attended: ...'08...'09...'10...'11...'12...'13!!
I get a manual because I go to shows throughout the year and got tired of pulling the battery. Besides, when you hold the button down it looks like you're smoking a high tech joint
Very good information, I will only bring my manual version to the festival.Originally Posted by scenicworld
I feel like e-cigs probably have other shit in them that is substitutes for all that stuff. Harsh ass chemicals and shit.
I really am hoping they don't allow these in for general public safety.
you'd be wrong, see page 2.
I hope you're just trolling.
anyone tried the new e-joints?
so, I quit smoking a few years ago by using e-cigs and reducing the nicotine and eventually even quit those as well, but ever since the "just a few cigs" I had during the last coachella I've gradually worked my back up to almost a pack a day and want to quit again. I used to use the njoy 510 tanks, but those have been discontinued and I'm not sure what brand would be best these days.
What I look for in an e-cig:
1. must be refillable
2. manual battery (or an auto that isn't activated by loud music)
3. strong hit
4. good vapor
5. portability (I don't want something that can't easily be kept in my purse)
1. USB/AC passthrough
2. voltage adjustment
3. use with oils, wax, weed
can someone recommend something for me? I don't want to invest a ton of money since my plan is to lower my nicotine over 6 months again, but I'd like it to work well enough that I can gift it when I'm done.
They'll give you a blood clot.
awesome, Drinkey! thanks!! congrats on quitting, too! for all the crap they are getting lately legislatively (NY, various CA cities and more), they really are the best way for someone who enjoys smoking to quit or to smoke without all of the consequences.
how's the shipping on that site?
I honestly don't remember what I paid for shipping, unfortunately.
that's ok. the prices look pretty good and I'm fairly patient.
*actually, on the check out page it says the shipping is FREE for the 510s. even better.
