    Can't comment on e-cigarettes, but this stuff helped me quit.

    Apparently most people are not aware of this.

    Hopefully you will quit completely before there are any bad side effects from this product.

    Good luck with your endeavour.
    Thank you for that information. This is a real concern. I never smoked real cigs in my house because of the cats but I do "smoke" E-cigs in the house and now I might have to investigate further and keep a safe space between me and the cats. I have been blowing smoke rings to amuse them and now I feel terrible because their health is more important to me than my own. They must not suffer from my behavior, I promised to take good care of them for their entire life and I am obligated (not to mention how passionately I love them). I just assumed it was water vapor.

    What color is the particulate? Gray, brown or ?

    Thank you!

    Sorry for the tangent, but I'd really love to see them ban advertising those ubiquitous and annoying pharmaceutical commercials too. The detailed descriptions of the disgusting side-effect disclaimers while I'm eating are a lovely bonus though.

    I had good luck with the Laser therapy treatment. It helped me quit for 3 days - and then the E-cigs tasted great and I never smoked another real one. Without that 3 day quit - they would not have satified me, I know, I tried.

    I've smoked since age 12 - I'm such a nicotine junkie. Please consider my strategy of the 3 day quit - with or without therapy. But if you can afford therapy (I think it was almost $300), just paying the money will reinforce your quit.

    My best wishes to you.

    If you wanted to ban e-cigarettes from television, you would have to demonstrate that they are worse than alcohol, a standard I don't think can be met. Considering they are vastly safer that regular cigs and can help people quit, I don't see a justification for an advertising ban.

    E-cigs are a superior delivery system for the tobacco smoker's drug of choice. I think disposable e-cigs should be banned though because we don't need even more electronic waste piling up in our landfills.

    If you had seen the build-up of stuff on those windows, you would be wondering. I've been cleaning glass for over 30 years and this was a serious amount for only 28 days.

    It's grayish. Given that the shop sells 100s of different flavors, not sure if one is worse than others.

    The shop owner said he was getting dehumidifiers and smoke filters installed soon.

    FWIW, I smoked for over 30 years and quit cold turkey. I know everyone can't do that but, it can be done.

    EVERYTHING that is legal should be legal to advertise.

    Booze, cigarettes, guns, prostitution (in places where it's legal like Canada and parts of Nevada), pot (in Colorado, Washington)...ANYTHING that is legal.

    This nonsense about advertising getting people to do bad things is ridiculous.

    Anyone pathetic enough to be convinced strictly by a commercial to do something 'bad' that they would otherwise not do, deserves everything they get.

    'Gee. Susan was a model citizen until she saw those cigarette, gun, drug and hooker commercials...then she instantly changed. Now she is a chain smoking, gun obsessed, crack whore'.

    It can turn my lungs to plastic, I don't give a ****. As long as I no longer wake for half an hour each night to cough.
