    Yes, and e-cigs. The irony is that e-cigs have only increased the amount of nicotine that I take in, because I only smoke them where regular cigs aren't allowed. At the same time though, I'm think a change of course is on my horizon, and I believe e-cigs are going to be a part of that change.

    I'm ok with just the e-cig. I was ~1/2 pack a day since ~1996, I prefer unfiltered.

    Get a heavy hitter and some serious juice. I don't care about the nicotine addiction (though it could hardly be worse). I like to breath better.

    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.
    I'm sure there's a lot of condensing going on -- after all, vaporizers essentially convert small amounts of liquid to a vapor state -- but particulates? No.

    I did a bunch of reading before I bought my rig, and some of that reading included studies on particulates -- the liquid itself has a tiny miniscule number, comparable to FDA-approved nicotine inhalers, and the vapor has none.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    The FDA was previously denied the authority to regulate vaporizers in Federal court because they failed to prove harm.

    You can get nicotine-free juice. Aside from that, the reason why smokers turn to them as an alternative is because of the nicotine. Why should Nicorette be allowed to advertised and not vaporizers?

    As for me, I put together my own rig -- a Vision Spinner variable voltage battery, a Kanger bottom-feeder tank, and I get my juice at The Vapor Chef.

    I'm vaping less nicotine than I used to smoke for the simple reason that I can take a puff or two when I feel the urge. With cigarettes, even the reservation brand was expensive enough that taking a puff or two and then tossing was a waste, and re-lit cigarettes make fresh-lit cigarettes taste like heaven.

    As I've mentioned a few posts above, I did a lot of reading before I switched, mainly because I didn't want to jump out of the frying pan and into the fire. The only drawback I saw was that there's a corelation between kids (wee little ones) exposed to vapor and asthma. For that reason, I only vape outdoors at home. I also don't vape in the office because I'm around a lot of sensitive electronics -- when they're already using air conditioners to reduce static discharge, it seems poor sport to vape, y'know?

    I smoked for almost 20 years, and I've tried to quit half a dozen times. Failed each time. With vaporizers I switched and never looked back. They turn a deadly addiction into a tasty hobby. It's methadone with flavor.

    Well said!

    Good point, too, and one I never thought of. When a cigarette, you tend to feel obligated to smoke the whole cigarette. With an e-cigarette (or e-pipe) you just take a drag when you feel like it. You don't just keep dragging on it until it's empty like you do a cigarette.

    I never thought of that difference before. BUT every now and then I do light up a cigarette - and when I do I essentially never smoke the whole cigarette. I'm not used to that anymore. So I take a couple drags off the cigarette and snuff it out. Then maybe will light it up later for a couple drags and snuff it out again - because that's my habit with e-cigarettes.

    Nicorette is designed to help people stop smoking completely. E-cigs are not.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I base this solely on what the store owner told me. To be fair, the problem seems worse when it's cooler outside.

    Regardless, he was installing all the dehumidifying and smoke removal equipment.
