    ...no terrible cigarette smell

    And after living with my mum for 21 years, when she smoked 40 a day, that is a big plus point for me

    It also opens up whole areas of the ship for smokers too...

    I am totally with you Jacqui. My only extra is to ask whether it would make giving up smoking easier in the long run, is it a means to an end or is it an OK substitute that could run and run? .....Neil

    As far as I am concerned it is a way to wean me off cigarettes, it may take a while but as it is at the moment I am not looking for a cigarette, usually if I attempt to stop smoking I am climbing the walls after a few days and since being on the e cigarette this is not happening, also no tobacco, no tar and none of the other ingredients that go into cigarettes such as varnish etc has to be a good thing, plus no smell and of course in the long run its cheaper it costs me about 5 per week which is not even the cost of a packet of cigarettes. Heres hoping that I will keep it up

    Hi Jo
    How do rate these e.cigarettes? Think I remember discussion a few months ago on them but I've searched and can't seem to find it.
    Thinking of trying them but would like some feedback from genuine users
    Thanks

    Hi, Tarkah, if you look on the index page, at Cruise Rants, then the last item, smoking....James' article is about the third on that page. As Jacqui says, they can really help you stop, or at least cut down drastically. A week ago, I was showing mine to a friend.....saw him tonight, and he's only bought one packet of cigs since, and he's just sent for the set for his son. Apart from the health issue, they're a big money saver! Almost up to 3 months now. Can't thank James enough!
    Jo.

    Hi Tarkha, I have found the e cigarette marvellous, the initial outlay can be a bit pricy approx 60 and for the first couple of weeks expect to lay out perhaps another 30 to 40 but then it will start to pay off, so if you look at it you would be paying 6 a pack of 20 cigarettes within a matter of 2/3 weeks it will have paid for itself. The general public obviously need to be educated on this product because of the stigma attached to smoking, but this is a real healthy option to smoking.

    I am going to have a word with my doctor about this product because if they prescribe niccotine patches etc on the NHS maybe they will provide the e cigarette cartridge refills which contain the hit from the niccotine, if you dont ask you will not find out.

    I am using e-lites which you can order on the web and also totally wicked products such as e-liquid for topping up refillable cartridges. I can only speak for myself and say I am totally delighted. Hope this information is a help.

    Hi Jo & Jacqui
    Many thanks for feedback. You've convinced me......decided to go for it.
    Hopefully this will stop me ending up like Nelly the Elephant Thats always been a problem when I've tried to stop........ vicious circle really. End up snacking..... put on weight..... then start smoking again & lose it.
    Definitely worth a try
    Thanks

    This has been quite educational. Most people on here know that I am extremely anti-smoking with my attitude but as a past smoker I know how difficult it is to stop smoking.

    Anything which helps wean people off the weed is great with me.

    What I would like to know now as you have been using the E cigarette for some time is; have you now become more aware of the smell of tobacco smoke on the hair and clothes of other people or does this synthetic ciggy still block this? If you are aware would this be an incentive to stay away from the real thing?

    Sorry to go on like this but I find this fascinating. .....Neil

    Imhave used one on a plane it's ok, but not as good as a nicorette inhalator.

    Now that can be better than the real thing if you use it to much. :D

    Neil,
    I've been off my cigs, pipes for a very long time but it probably took almost a few false starts and over two years to go though withdrawal.
    One of the issues is having something to do as in placing something in your fingers, your mouth, trying to stop the weight gain when you stop but that of course leads to better health.
    A lot of people Will sometimes chew gum or wood picks while talking to you aside from patches or candies. If we can not be bothered overall then e-cigs can also be a new fashion. A problem might be convincing someone that liquid is not some type of drug yet on the same token, smoking is a sort of drug.
    To me, it is memories of the smell and pleasure that still attracts me but I know it would be wrong to try else I will start again and my health would suffer.
    My better option is the smell of a woman;s fragrance as she passes by which uplifts my smell need and exercises my eyes.

    I had a bunch of woman who worked for me request I talk to a male colleague as his jacket reeked of pipe smoke and it was bothering them.
    Well I did and told him , welcome to the family and all he had to was leave the pipe outside somewhere and not in his jacket.
    I then told the woman , it was now up to them to talk to the next person as I would not and and had they ever smelled various colognes they use as someone might find that offensive.
    The list and slights go on...

    I'm in a happy mood today
    Seriously Neil, have a good day
