It's not all good. According to this electronic cigarette infomation site, there are many chinese manufacturers making cheap imitations which are potentially quite dangerous.

I actually got to try one the other week and I LOVED it. I'm planning on getting one for myself. It felt real and tasted clean. Like water filtered smoke. Very smooth.

They have been banned in Turkey and parts of Australia. Very unfortunate for the people living there. For the first time in 40 years I am tobacco free. I don't mind a little nicotine addiction as long as I can get it without tobacco.

Eck.... They're trying to ban it in my hometown to.


I prefer my good old carcinogens, nice and nasty. Get's me where I'm going quicker, if you catch my drift....

But yeah, damn, if I can't smoke a stog after my Big Mac and Sprite I'm going to be one ticked off mofo.

Luckily there isn't one ban in Oregon I'm aware of. =)

The major reason they are trying to ban has to be because it stops money going to big tobacco comapnies.
There's serious money in keeping people buying cigarettes.

If it can't be promoted as a stop smoking device, fair enough.
You can choose zero nicotine and it's been successful for me.
But why it should be banned entirely as a choice, compared with the health effects of conventonal cigarettes is beyond me.

As an alterntive to inhaling tar and other carcinogens, and the second hand smoke and residue thats involed, I still thing it's a viable alternative for those craving nicotine.

Yes, plus see how much tax money the government is earning off cigarettes... Smoking keeps an entire industry alive, as well as being important source of income for govt
One big tobacco company, i think philip morris, even tried to enter the 'alternative nicotine' (or whatever you want to call it) space by building some kind of ridiculous e-cig thing (completely different than the ones discussed here) a few years ago, called 'heatbar' - try googleing it! It totally failed

Haven't heard about that yet. I do know that most airlines have banned them, which is understandable given the confusion it creates (as electronic cigarettes look almost identical to normal cigarettes).

Most countries in the EU are discussing the electronic cigarette and whether to ban it or not, but no official bans yet!

This product is much better than that one
www.myluci.com

they look similar with the new crown7 hydro but it is smaller and lighter than it.

it is a bit more expensive but worth the price, they offer a 1 year warranty on it as well. check it out

I just stumbled upon this thread. I had never heard of the E-cig before. Those of you that have now used it for a couple of months, do you still recomend it?

After reading all the posts it seems like a great alternative to all the nasty chemicals that are in cigarettes. But, before I invest in one I wanted to see if the results are still positive. I would greatly appreciate it if you post your opinion. Thanks!

I am still using mine, and I still love it. A couple of things to keep in mind, though.

First...I noticed that I was still craving cigarettes after several days. If you can get past that hurdle then its great. I think it is a nice stepping stone to quitting completely.

Second, if you go overboard with a high nicotine level and puff constantly (like I did at first) it could lead to a short-lived stomach ache. I think it has something to do with swallowing all of that nicotine in your saliva.

All in all I definitely recommend them. Its a little bit of a change from cigarettes, and it is nice. On top of the e-cig and now solely using my Vapor Brothers vaporizer I feel that my lungs like me a lot more these days.

The no smoking bans are about control. - If the government cared about your health, we would have clean energy by now, and climate change would not be able to be used as an excuse to take even more of our freedom away.

Smoking is healthier than fascism!

Thanks so much for responding. It's good to know that you still enjoy the product. I ordered a mini from pure smoker. I think it's delivering today. Unfortunately they are sold out of all the mini re-fillable cartridges and the light nicotine cartridges.

Apparently they are getting more stock next week, so I'll have to wait until I can get light cartridges before I give it a try. But looking forward to it. People must like them since much of their product is out of stock.

I just hope the government doesn't try to put control on this next, it's hard enough that we have to order these products on-line. I wonder if any of the smoke shops will start carrying the e-cig products & accessories.

Thanks again for providing the thread.

I am sure smoke shops will start stocking them, but my fear would be extremely high prices for items that should be considered "disposable". I know my local smoke shop over charges on dang near everything they sell. However, there is hope for you. I do believe Target of all places carries the NJoy brand of e-cig components. You may be able to get carts there.

Target? WOW! That's surprisng. It's the last place I would consider to be carrying these products. I'll have to check that out. I did wonder if the NJoy products were compatible with the e-cig I ordered from puresmoker.com.
