I just started using a e-ciggy
got the refillable kind. I recommend spending a bit of money to get a good one verses the cheapy stuff.
also, since I smoked a lot before, about 25 a day, I started on 26mg doses. (tobacco flavored initially, but am branching out and trying other
flavors..some are better than others).
without trying, I have cut my cig count down to about 8-10 a day..again, without trying. I just have it right next to my computer (where I spend most
of my time) and puff on it now and then.
As answered above, the weird throat thing is just the nicotine..also, there is a slight diffference between steam and smoke, so that will be a slight
learning curve...but, you get used to that real quick actually...so no worries there...
just make sure, if your trying to replace your ciggies, to get the high dose 26mg initially, else you will just want a cigarette anyhow..you can
slowly come down from there.
And ya, one puff = one puff...not one pack
Side benefit: I find with this nearby, and some flavors...I have slowed down my snacking also (mindless snacking, not the intentional stuff..but the
mindless snacking is the biggest downfall anyhow).
They do have zero nic (flavored steam) stuff out..so, anyone whom wants to cut back on just mindless snacking might consider getting that.
There is some concern about long term consequences of using an electronic cigarette...not enough is known about it yet..but, whatever the case, it is
much much better than smoking cigarettes.
