I ordered an e-cig a few weeks ago. Still waiting for the dang thing to get here. I think in the future I will start ordering and buying from somewhere else(assuming it works).
Someone said it is not a stop smoking aid. Well that is exactly how I plan to use it. I plan on taking the doses of nicotine down more and more until I wing myself off the nicotine. And then once I'm off the nicotine, I can work on the physical habit.
I have very high hopes for this. It would be so nice to get rid of my biggest vice.
Negatory, Cigarettes and the chemicals in them are not what makes them addictive, its the NICOTINE, and smoking a NICOTINE Cigarette will not help you quit in the slightest. Think about it, Amonia is not addictive, and neither is Tar... NICOTINE Cigarettes are only a way to get people to smoke while feeling safer, and possibly MORE addicted than what all the chemicals in a regular Cig would get you.. Think about it, Stuff like this is based off of money, if they dont have to buy the tobacco, and they generate the Nicotine out of a lab, rofl, you think Phillip Morris is rich...
Sorry if I dun make any sence, im drunk, but I believe that I have a valid point.
IMHO, Ive tried several vaporisers, and for the most part these do work as advertised, however these units require the use of " Cartidges" that you must repeatedly buy from the manufacturer.
there are better portable units available ( like the Iolite or I Inhale) which do not require you to purchase exclusive " cartidges" to use.
I doubt it... none of these companies ever really show the meat of the argument.
My advice: don't buy into the hype surrounding these without doing your own research.

FDA has a policy that electronic cigarettes can neither be marketed as safer than traditional cigarettes or as a device to stop smoking. Electronic cigarette smokers I know (myself included) feel better soon after starting and continue to feel better months and years after (I've been using them for a year). As a device to quick smoking regular cigarettes, most people I know that use ecigarettes quit or severely cut down on traditional cigarettes from their first day to a week or so. I know there may be an unknown risk with them, but compared to traditional cigarettes, doctors, scientists, and health-wise professionals say they are probably about 1000 times safer. I think they should be cheaper and more commonly available so more people use them. I get my electronic cigarettes at majorsmoke.com where they have free shipping and the lowest prices on the web. One of the reasons that various government groups and states are questioning their safety and use as a smoking cessation device is because money that states get from the taxes on the sale of traditional cigarettes is very predictable and they really want all that tax money.

Tobacco was not the leading cause of the diseases it's all the extra chemicals they don't tell you about... that I can almost guarantee are still inside the Liquid Nicotine.
