    Except one is designed to get you to stop smoking, the other is designed to keep you smoking. That's the difference.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    To begin with, there is no smoke with ecigs / vaporizers. There is no combustion. Each puff consists of a tiny amount of liquid which is heated until it vaporizes. There are no particulates in this vapor, and studies with laboratory animals exposed to vapor showed no cell death or abnormal cell growth. Please, from here on out, separate in your mind the consumption of cigarettes and the use of ecigs or vaporizers, you are comparing apples to monster trucks.

    Second off, neither nicotine gum nor ecigs / vaporizers are designed to do anything other than deliver nicotine. Gum has been approved because the manufacturers did studies to prove that it could be used to aid cessation, then received FDA approval to advertise this use. Vaporizers have not been approved because the many and sundry manufacturers haven't bothered -- instead of saying "use this to quit smoking," they tell you why their product is so much more awesome than smoking.

    Same result, different approvals and advertising.

    So, again, there is no difference, pharmacological or functional.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

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

    I don't know about "designed" but one (the gum) didn't work for me and the other one (E-Cig) did.

    Me too.

    Y'all need to kick the habit! Then you'll be like me and think "that was the most stupid waste of time (30 years), health and money ever"

    I think they work great. Certainly a better alternative.

    Started off with those blu ones.
    Graduated to using a full vape, rocking one of these bad larrys now.


    I must say...no more coughing. I feel 10X better (might be in my head).

    Advertise away.

    A 134? Those things weigh a ton! I love my MVP2, but I'm thinking about getting a billet box.

    That's the first thing I tried, because I wanted something simple and modular and not requiring customization or replacement parts or tinkering. I wanted something that just worked off-the-shelf with no forethought so that it would require minimum adjustment.

    Unfortunately, the draw was so stiff that I could never get enough in one drag. The part of my brain that was fiending for nicotine started putting out "I'm suffocating" vibes -- so instead of satisfying the craving so I could go back to work, I got panicy. Didn't even make it through the day before I had to break out the emergency pack.

    It wasn't until I went with an actual rig with a much easier pull that I found my new home.
