    Electric cigarettes

    I quit smoking two weeks ago, am on the patch currently, and have bought two electric cigarettes over that span. Both have died within only a few hours of usage. They were just the cheap $10 from the corner store. For those who have quit or douchebags who use them and aren't smokers, can someone suggest a better one? do I have to get one online for a good quality one? A few friends of mine have bought them online and costed $80+ shipping which seems a little steep.

    Quit cold turkey. My mom just quit smoking for 4 months and had been smoking 21 years. Was hard for the first 3 days or so then no problem.

    My mother smoked for a little over 40 years and quit in March of this year for the electronic cigarette. In the 9 months since she has had maybe 3-4 puffs of a real cigarette. She gets hers from a retail outlet. Hope you have as much success with the e cigarette as she has had.

    Indianapolis Colts: 11-5, 2013 AFC South Champs, great season guys.
    Looking for new NBA team to cheer for
    Ottawa Senators: 37-31-14, season over, good effort guys.

    Time to become an adult.

    I wouldnt think saving some 70 dollars is really worth it when your health is seriously at risk

    Quit your addiction, don't supplement one intake method with another.

    Still not getting it are we? I quit smoking. I have not physically smoked a cigarette in two weeks. You don't understand the difference?

    I don't mean to defend a Met, but what I can attempt to understand by his broken English is:

    You should quit the Nicotine completely. Although e-cigs are less-harmful than normal cigarettes, they still contain the drug [Nicotine] that you are trying to fight off. It's the same as the patches.

    Choose one or the other, and hopefully the appeal for Nicotine will go away completely.

    And by the way, those pants, they belong to my dad.And they're not really pants,
    they're Lederhosen

    You can choose an E-Cig without nicotine. Benefit of them is that you aren't getting the smoke, chemicals and tar cigarettes contain. Nicotine is addictive, but isn't the harmful or most harmful ingredient in a cigarette. I've quit smoking numerous times cold turkey, but for God knows why, I have started up again. My last 9 month quitting spell, an e-cig (cheap disposables) helped me along the way. Hoping to kick the habit for good any day now.

    Am I the only one who thinks they smell terrible. Someone at my office does it and his breath smells HORRIBLE all of the time. Haven't noticed that effect with regular cigarettes. Maybe he just smells bad.
