Is anyone here an ex-smoker and use electronic cigarettes? Been off cigarettes for almost 5 months now and using an e-cig. Just interested if anyone else has heard/used/seen these before as they are great devices that work!

I been stopped for almost 10 months now. Don't have or own an e-cigarette, but my ex-girlfriend used to have one, didn't taste or feel like a cigarette to me to be honest, can't explain why, think it may be that I'm was aware it wasn't a "real" cigarette.

Real cigarettes taste like ass, so glad I can notice it now as before as a smoker. Got all my taste buds back too which is good, plus my room smells like blueberrys, and clothes don't smell of cigarettes no more :)

I use them only for entertainment. I've never been (or will be) a "true smoker". I have choccie mud cake flavor in mine, and it tastes great!

Will stop using them if there is conclusive evidence to suggest they are unhealthy for me though.

lol Raa, good point, but much healthier then pumping over 5000 chemicals + raditation into your lungs smoking a tradition cigarette then a handful of food grade liquids :)

I've been using ecigs for around 2 years now, and I love them.

Depends how you look at that situation giantpotato, if its end-user error, thats plausible, I know someone who threw out a lit cigarette butt, but failed to put it out and their house caught on fire. Do the right things, all is well :)

I used to spend $18 a day for a pack of smokes, so over $120 per week. Now with ecigs I spend less than $5 total a week. Go figure :)

Below is a photo of my ecig stock that can easily last me 2 years :p

Wayhay! Some fellow vapers on neowin. :)

I have to ask, I understand getting an e-cig to hepl you quit. But you quit ages ago, why are you still using one? They look rediculous and still are not good for you.

@DARKFiB3R nice work mate, congrats to you and your missus on quitting :) Good to see fellow vapers on here!

I still use my ego for work as its light and easy to carry, my Provari is a treat as its VV

My next mod, im looking at silver bullet, its a standard 3.7v device or 6v if stacked (can explode in face if used unprotected battery) but ill be using a 18650 battery with low resistance 510 atomiser/carto at 3.7v and it should do the job :)

There's no proof that e-cigs are not good for you. I use one because I enjoy the flavor. (I have no nicotine as i've never smoked)

Plus it's a great head turner when you're inside a building and you just pull it out and start vaping. When people give the shocked expression, take it apart wait a few seconds, put it back together and vape again. THEN watch the reaction!! :laugh:

Oh and it doesn't set off fire/smoke alarms either... :whistle:

As for the drinking coffee question. Heard of decaf? Some people just like the taste. :p

Many people switch to vaping as a heather, cheaper option, rather than quitting. I personally enjoy it, and have no intention of quitting any time soon.

The way they look (which is wildly diverse) is objective.

Yea, but i still enjoy my nicotine :) They look rediculous because the ecigs in my picture is around $1000

The cheaper cigarette looking ones dont cut it for me, like how DARKFiB3R's missus cried, my wallet cried instead :p

If I may ask you a question, why do you drink coffee? Because of the caffeine hit right? Same principle ;)

I don't see any $1000 ecig(s) in that picture, I see one ecig that is either ~$20 (+$16 for the tank carto) if it's an ego, ~$100 if it's a lava tube, or ~$180 if it's a Provari (I can't tell without zooming in on it and I'm too lazy, and it may not even be either of those for all I know, but it definitely looks to be a standard mass-produced model).

Personally I don't see all the fuss with variable voltage mods; I am and have been quite happy with my 3.7v 1000mAh ego batts for quite some time. If you want a 5v feel you can just put a LR atomizer on there. Still, one of the wonderful points of vaping is the number of options available to you. I know a lot of people who swear by 5v vaping.

Still, $1000? I think not; you'd have to get a Precise or something custom made, and even those don't run close to $1k.

Ego I paid $80 2 years ago

2 tanks $80

Provari $180 + $30 for entender cap + $20 for 2500 mah battery

SS GGTS $300 + $20 for battery + $150 for UFS Tank

So its close :p

@Darrian p.s whos side are you on anyways? :p hehe yea ego with LR works wonders, especially the 1000mah, but I bought my ego 2 years ago and its 600mah, not ad long lasting

Who needs to zoom? lol

Also, surely all that typing took more effort than zooming? :rofl:

Not sure of the cost either, but I know it comes to a good few quid, and I think he's talking AUS Dollars.

lol it's like 50%

If you paid $80 for an ego you got ripped off, cos that's what I paid 2 years ago (from Janty, who was and still is one of the more expensive vendors) and I got 2 of them, plus a charger, plus an atty, plus prefilled carts (god am I glad there are better things than carts now); one battery by itself ran (and still runs some places) about $26. I buy them for like $20 from Volcano.

Yes, it took more effort, but I wanted to talk more than I wanted to look closer. Basically I can't read the writing on the side easily cos the shot is dark, but I'm betting it's a Provari. Which means at most he probably spent $200 (for the unit; whatever he spent in extra batteries, chargers, spare attys or cartos, etc, are not in the picture). AUD seems to be worth more than USD at the moment.

Back to mk1990: Holy ****, $40 for a tank? What kind are you buying and where from?

That's how much egos went for back 2 and half years ago (including shipping), came with 2 batteries, 2 cones, usb charger, wall charger, manual, box, prefilled carts with 2 attys.

It is however cheaper now days espeically if you just buy battery and charger minus the kit
