E Cigarette Advice Please

Recommended Posts

Guess there's a few people on here who use them and as I'm considering giving up fags (yet again) thought I might benefit from some advice.

A few questions;

1) best make and model?

2) any flavours recommended?

3) tried e-cigs before very briefly but got headaches, is this normal in the early stages?

4) Traditionally when you stop smoking you put on weight, does the e-cig curtail the cravings for food?

5) I smoke around 20 roll ups a day (Golden Virginia) any suggestions as to what nicotine dosage I might need?

Don't get the ones that look like cigs they are crap.

Get a proper vaping style one, where you need to refill with liquid.

Get two or at least two batteries.

I smoke Golden Virginia too (when out for a pint) and I find 10-12mg strength about right

above that its too strong.

Never used flavours so don't know.

Didn't get headaches.

No food craving for me.

They are a bit harsh when starting up first thing, so i always have 4/5 draws

without inhaling just to get it going.

 

There are loads of makes, I think you can try them in the shop.

A friend of ours who smoked 60 a day for 40 years has quit with an e cig 3 years ago and is still puffing away on it.  :huh:

Bit late in the day advicewise Steve - but if you haven't already done so, shell out fifty quid or so on a decent 'mod' (the bottom bit that provides the power) - see UK vapers site for opinions on suitable devices..

A 'self coiling' atomiser (the top bit that you fill with juice) might set you back 30quid - I found the Kayfun lite design to be dead easy to work out and maintain - aka 'Russian 91%') - the wire is like 4quid for 10metres, and you can use ordinary cotton wool for the wick - that'll last forever - this as opposed to the atomisers that require new coils already manufactured by same company - hideously expensive....

 

If the mod is powered by lithium '18650' batteries, they're anything between 5 and 10quid a pop, and you'll need a charger (massive price variation)

So call it a oner for the lot - but seriously, this'll kick the shit out of them clearomiser type things - even though there's nothing wrong with 'em for what they cost...

 

Weight control wise - if you have this going from hand to mouth it neutralises the hand to mouth part of the habit's absent-minded tendency to go via the biscuit tin....

Hope you're off the cigarettes/baccy mate; horrible nasty, sneaky addiction - if you are still struggling inbox me and I'll try to answer any more questions you might have

100quid sounds extortionate I know, but y'know, relative value, compare v cost of 200 cigarettes, it's a bargain.

Biggest negative of 'vaping' (esp. using an obviously well-engineered device) is totally blowing your style points all in one go by producing such an anorakky, dweeb-orientated object when out in public. Star Trekkies and trainspotters will pour scorn on your abysmal stylo from way on high. 

I have no style at all, and appalling dress sense, but even so, I am still reluctant to use my Hana DNA30 chipset box mod/Aspire sub-ohm setup, even when I'm wearing my knitted pullover with 'TWAT' crocheted across the front. Good thing is that I could outrun/jump over any lynch mob cos my chest is great now.

Right, off to show this post to some e-cig companies and demand promo commission fees for my uncommissioned, unwelcome, but sterling freelance work.
