.....The anti smoking lobby have argued themselves into a corner if they ever tried to claim nicotine vaping was more dangerous than tobacco.
Even If it turned out that nicotine was detrimental to our health it would still be a very hard task to argue that nicotine on it's own is not safer to inhale than the thousands of toxic substances in an ordinary cigarette.
It will be interesting to see how this all plays out. If there is an attempt to ban e-cigs then it will become blatantly obvious that our health is not a major priority for our governments

I have been using E-cigs for about a month now.
I'm trying to get off of regular cigarettes, and not doing too well with it. The e-cigs are just not the same. They don't have that kick you get in the back of your throat.
The e-cigs have just become a means for me to smoke more, and I smoke a lot as it is. Now I can smoke in my office, on the train, in meetings.
I'm becoming Nicotine Man!

I bought a Vapor4Life Dial-A-Volt about a month ago and am loving it. I also buy 4 packs of cartomizers at a time and they last me over a month. $40 for a months worth of cartos vs. $280 a month on real cigarettes. Tough to beat that deal.
I also heard from the guy that works at the gas station down the street that smokes are going up another $1 by the end of June. Since I live in NY, that would make my brand of smokes cost anywhere between $11.25-$12.50 a pack.
I see the tobacco industry fighting the ecig industry to the death. I just hope that ecigs win.

I have been smoking ecigs for about 2 months now. I really can't imagine going back to 'analogs'. I've tried some mainstream brands like blucigs, nu, v2 and green smoke.
I may have traded one addiction for another, but my goal was to get off of nasty tobacco and still do something i enjoy, which is smoking. The answer was ecigs. Cleaner and cheaper, no more ashes and smell in my car or on my clothes.
And I smoke at my desk at work, or sneak a puff in places where you aren't allowed to smoke. I still conceal it because I don't feel like explaining to sheeple who are anti-smoking because the television tells them to.
I can either smoke indoors, or escape a conversation or work and say "I better go outside to smoke this ecig"

Been completely smoke free for nearly a year now. I'm using 2 AGA-T 2's, one on a Provari, one on a GG clone.
Electronic cigarettes aren't meant to be used for smoking cessation. They're meant to be a safer alternative.

yeah water vapor in your lungs all the time will make you sick, e-cigs made me sick two weeks after using them i had a realy bad cough "I know what your thinking its because you don't smoke real cigs anymore and your lung are getting out the crap bs" I have quit smoking for a year "patches" and I can tell you it didn't effect me like that crap did! It has a battery inside it which is used for the vaporizer to burn the liquid which cant be good lol water+battery usually = corrosion to the exposed metal. Used the blue e-cigs they cost a small fortune one refill doesn't= 2 packs it lasts for 45 mins its bs
