I quit 3 days ago, I'm on the ego-T e-cig, and it really works great for me, it satisfies all my need, nicotine, the taste, and that cut feeling down my throat, I highly recommend it and in the past 3 days not once ave I taught to myself that this may not work, it's will power too, you got to keep reminding yourself " I can, I will, I must"

It's not the same. It's better. Doesn't burn your throat at all, quite the opposite. A lower strength E liquid gives less hit on the throat, so you can "customise" your experience that way too. Definitely doesn't burn though, tastes great!

Thanks utiler, try recommending these to family members if they have difficulty quitting. No excuse to smoke any more. :)

iichiversii, remember this image below if you get stressed. I think your device is same as mine, does it have the clear tank? and well done!

for more that a decade I was a serious smoker and each time that I was going to quit it , next month I was back and deeper! several ways , like phaseout quit.... no one worked
eachtime I was sad, or happy, a good weather or a bad happening, was a good mood asking me to smoke again
even I was trying one , before the breakfast, and then starting the day.... believe me , it brings the "first time" enjoy :) hahahah, so it was really hard to quit.
finally I "verry seriously" ( I insist on " verrrry seriously) decided to quit, and it worked... at the beginning , my days was going calm and gray....I was searching "something missing"... but after 2 weeks almost everything was ok, and now it is near to tree years ... :ecstatic:

This is my baby, not exactly the same but it has all the features yours has, not once have I even craved a real cig in the past 4 days.

Rich it's idea, I used to smoke silk cut too and I the past few days iv become used to this, just so you know there is a shop is Ennis that sells these and the refills are €5 cheaper than in limerick, if you need the stores name PM me and ill let you know, I highly recommend this, and to be honest I didn't even plan to quit, seen a guy at work using 1, asked him about it, had a drag of it and decided to get 1 that same evening, being on it since :)

well done majid, I bet you feel much better now!

iichieversii: Yeah looks same, you have a different atomiser piece though.

Does your mouthpiece draw back nicely?

Because I tried one similar to that and it didn't pull back as tight as the clear tank with normal round mouthpiece. Maybe it's different but try the other one too in case you prefer it.

Good heavens, what has the world come to? Grown men sucking on Dummies, or should that be Dummies sucking on Dummies? I'm 69 years of age and up 'til May last year I was a heavey smoker from the tender age of 12. All it took for me to knock off was an acute stroke and a heart attack, both within one short hour. I now chew gum and wear a patch when I remember to put it on. The price of tobacco in NZ is so high it would be cheaper to smoke waccy baccy, and a site more enjoyable too. $60.00 for a 50g pack of tobacco is a bit steep, I think. It's nice to see all those excise taxes I paid went towards the excellent Hospital treatment I received :berserk:

:lol: :lol:

Unfortunately I can not wait for an acute stroke or heart attack to quit smoking. So for now I'll be a dummy and suck my dummy. Never been able to quit for more than a couple of days so this is massive for me!

I don't understand nicotine chewing gum.

If I had an addiction to chewing gum, would they recommend smoking to cure the habit? The two are unrelated IMO. I know patches/gum release nicotine but 93% of people who use them return to smoking within 6 months. So who is the dummy? ;)

Sucking on a cigarette better than on a dummy (pacifier)? I'll take the dummy and avoid your fate mate.

Hey Oli...guess what......I'm on board too!I just got mine couple of hours ago.
I'm happy, my wife's happy...my 2.5 years old kid is not, because he want to play with it.
I think I need to say thank you man. Can't wait the next morning coffee. :ecstatic:
I'll get back with more details, but not now. Now I'm happy. Is that normal, or I'm just dizzy?
Cheers,

Maybe I was the dummie for starting smoking in the first place, strokes and heart attacks are not pretty things to have or observe, stay alive I'm petty sure it's more fun. Now where did I put the Viagra :ecstatic:

Great stuff!

Ooh you have a dock for yours!! Very posh!! :) I have to unscrew my battery and plug it in! If you have a lanyard to hold your E-Cig I suggest you use it, won't lose it then and always within reach.

Stefan, if your atomizer/clearomizer part splits or cracks from the bottom....they now sell a stronger reinforced one. Same price and looks the same, they just don't crack. I can substantiate this claim, my new one is still going strong and it's in my mouth all day! :)

Yes please give a review when you have time so we get a broad spectrum of unbiased opinion on these devices. :thumb:

Nicely done guys! Yeah vaping really is a pleasant experience. Very similar to those shisha pipes you get in eastern countries, in terms of flavour and smoothness.

Very excited about this vaping, I'm 62yo and still smokin like a fool, tried patches, lozenges, willpower, (hah!).

Just spent an hour trying to figure it all out, atomizers?, cartomizers? e-liquid, etc.etc.

Very confusing, nearly placed an order with an Aussie reseller, but then read that he cannot supply nicotine, Duh!

Anybody know of an actual bricks and mortar shop in Australia?

Cheers
Baz

Have a look at the "stealth vaping" vid. He points out that the vapour still looks like smoke, so you can still get harassed, unless you use his technique.

So Gai, you have been using E-cigs for a while?
What do you think are the downsides?

Sometimes you DO need that stinking smell/taste in your mouth. I still smoke cigarettes, too - but much less. I could not imagine a morning coffee or after a great lunch without a real cigarette but eCigs are great to be sitting at the computer and only sucking a draught or two - instead of letting half a cigarette burn. You know the kind: when you are waiting for a render or a download to complete and you feel "obliged" to do something in the meanwhile.

Congratulations Pete!

Csaba, my mother did the same. She massively cut down cigarettes first for two weeks, then one day she didn't buy any more cigarettes. Everyone is different and suddenly stopping suited me but maybe not others. I know the feeling, you click render and immediately spark up. :lol: You start to associate any waiting activity with having a cig.

Baz, I've never been confronted by anyone. They may be confused for a second but nobody has told me to stop vaping. The stealth vaping technique is only really needed on a packed train etc.


Jeez every time I type vaping my auto-spell changes it to gaping!! Gotta be careful!

Yeah the tobacco and traditional NRT companies such as Niquitin must be very worried indeed. I saw this coming the moment I began vaping, it's almost too good to be true.

So when they come to tax/restrict such products, I'll be buying 1000 bottles of E-liquid the night before! :lol:

As expected in America, big business buys loud politicians, they all do it, it's corruption out in the open. That's why we cannot have nice things.

A long way off though mate, the public outcry will be enormous.

I'd like to see such stringent regulations on cigarettes; especially the thousands of chemicals they add! It's not even tobacco by the time you buy it.

You can make your own vapes anyway, screw em. If there's a ban/regulation I'll personally CNC everyone here my own E-Cig. It's just a battery, coil, wick and chamber. :)

I can do the liquids, I have over a decade experience in food color and flavors, heck if I could just figure out where to get the nicotine base I would sell my own stuff.
