What's your experience with e-cigarettes?


Frankly, I didn't have the will power to stop cold turkey, but my e-cigarette has made quitting smoking a breeze!  The first week was a little bit of a transition, but after that it was downright easy.  I have literally smoked ONE cigarette in the past 3 months...AND IT TASTED TERRIBLE!!  

To anyone thinking of trying to quit by using an e-cigarette, I definitely recommend it :)  Just wanted to share!!

(On a side note, I've heard it's important to invest in a half decent e-cigarette; the little gas station "blu" e-cigarette isn't anywhere close to the same quality of a real one.  I think my starter kit was $50, but it was enough for 2 people, not 1)

I quit using one. I tried a real cigarette after a month of my ecig and it was disgusting. I've been smoke free for quite some time.

I smoked for over 20 years. Tried everything to quit. its been a little over 6 months since I bought my first e-cig. totally worth the start up money. I didn't even realize my breathing was affected until I could actually breath again.

I did try a disposable Blu menthol e-cig when I was trying to quit smoking last year. I didn't "hate" it, but it wasn't very satisfying; when I'd finished vaping with it, I'd still want a real cigarette. I don't really want to invest in a whole rechargable kit. I'm thinking of trying the Njoy disposable that my daughter has tried. She said they were pretty good. She wasn't trying to quit, though.

I used one to help me quit after I found out I was pregnant. It definitely wasn't the same as a real cig, but it really helped in these times when my cravings really got bad. I was a pack-a-day smoker when I got a positive HPT. Lately, I've really been craving one, and I hope I can stay quit once my baby is born. I still miss having a cigarette every single day. :(

 I can appreciate everything you've said.  I just know that, in my personal experience, it has helped me kick a very nasty habit without it being a stressful experience.  I just hope that others can experience the same results.


Quoting ncbirdie:

As a non-smoker whose entire family has been smokers, I have a bit different perspective.  My sister, aunt, dad, and even my husband have tried quitting with an e-cig.  DH used Blu before they were "gas station" e-cigs.  To make it worth-while, he had to buy multiple "cartons" online at once, which was very expensive.  So that didn't stick.  He tried going back when he could buy the "cartons" at Walgreens, and then again using the disposable Blu.  He did well when he finally went cold turkey and was clean for about 3 months, but then started smoking again.

Right now my sister, dad, and aunt are using the eGo.  They like the different flavors. 

What I see are these people paying a fortune on this apparatus as well as the liquid to fill them.  They are still getting the nicotine and are still addicted to that.  They are merely replacing the source of their addiction.  No, they're not "smoking", but they're still spending money on their addiction and they're mimicking the action.  I prefer that they use an e-cig, though, because it doesn't stink.

I want to try an ecig at some point, but I am just so addicted to my 4 or 5 real cigs per day:  everything about them, including the way it looks in my hand (that crazy bong shape of the ecig is funny looking!) is what I love about smoking cigarettes.  Been smoking the real thing since I was 11, and loving everyone of them since the second one I lit up.
