I been using an E- cig more than TWO YEARS.
It's cleaner healthier cheaper. Costs me about £13 a month for a bottle of liquid. When you factor in spare atomizers and batteries I'd say a
average of £20 a month. Unless I'm at work it's never out of my mouth so that's very heavy usage and still cheap.
One good tip to everybody is buy bottles of liquid to top up your cartridges rather than use pre-filled cartridges. Much, much cheaper and atomisers
last longer as you can keep the cartridge topped up so it isn't heating up with not enough liquid in it. Also I use cigarette flavours rather than
fruit as I think this best way to replace cigs. Friends who stick to fruit flavours tend to fall back on cigarettes to get "the taste".
Bottles of juice can be got from Liberty Flights and I would recommend Gold and Silver (Benson and Hedges- ish), Silk Blend (supposed to be Silk Cut
but tastes like Embassy to me), and D'Doff (not sure what it's supposed to be but mixes nice with Gold and Silver). There's plenty of other Tobacco
flavours but these work best for me. There are other companies selling E-Liquid but I rate Liberty Flight the best.
I use the DS901 e-cig. No different to smoking really, except better, now I'm used to it.
Just to reiterate, I was a heavy smoker who thought he was fit and healthy (hiking, biking, exercise, healthy eating). Looking back I realise I was
actually ill with the smoking, and didn't realise until I'd stopped. I now feel as healthy as I did 25 years ago, but have given up nothing, just
changed my nicoteen delivery system from smoke to vapour.
I would recomend this to any smoker who can't quit.
ps I was also a heavy cannabis smoker. Haven't bothered with drugs since switching to e-cig. Feel so good now, don't need 'em. In fact I don't
feel good, I feel fantastic.
