Do you still smoke?

I just though I'd let you know if you are interested in quiting smoking I have found a great the way. My DDIL & neighbor and a few others have just kicked the habit.

I haven't smoked in almost 5 yrs, but still miss it almost everyday.
I just found out about the E-cigs, they are great if you want to stop the harmful smoking habit.

From a non-technical standpoint: the electronic cigarette may as well be a real cigarette, except that it does not harm you. What makes the e-cig so distinct is this:

Advantages of the E-cig (Vaping) over Smoking

No tar, harmful toxins, or carbon monoxide as found in traditional cigarettes
No more second-hand smoke to worry non-smokers around you
No lighters needed, non-flammable
No ashtrays needed, no ash or butts to dispose of
No smoke, only vapor
Allows you to get your nicotine fix in places smoking is not allowed, no more going outside to smoke
Less expensive than traditional cigarettes
Will hopefully allow cheaper insurance rates since you're no longer a tobacco user
Improved health without the tar and toxins
Improved self-esteem by losing the stigma of being a smoker, you're now a non-smoker
No more burnt holes in carpet, clothing, sofas
No more smokey-smelling clothes or hair
Fresher breath

It's been rated as 95% similar to smoking the cigarettes you are already used to. This means that it is so close to the 'habit' that you already enjoy that it is now incredibly easy to switch away from tobacco.

I tried it myself and I think its a great way to put a end to real smoke. My neighbor is 3 weeks smoke free and so it my DDIL, its just amazing. They can actually smell the smoke now when they never could before.

I don't smoke but I work in a casino and appreciate the people who use these devices. They are better for the smoker and much better for those around who don't smoke!

RE: Do you still smoke?

I don't smoke but how does it allow you the nicotine "fix"?

RE: Do you still smoke?

Because the liquid you put in the e-cig has nicotine in it. The strength you want or 0 nic.
