There are some really crummy devices and really low quality liquids out there though. But once I got my hands on a quality device that had really good vapor production and great flavor, I never went back. Its better than the real thing.

I made the swap completely last New Years (2012).

There have been some studies conducted on them, and the main difference between e-cigs and actual ones are the blood nicotine levels. With less nicotine in the body it will be easier to quit all together when you're ready.

There are some real a$$holes on DU, just like there are everywhere else, but there are, for the most part, some really kind and good people here, as well.

But, it really pisses us off when someone calls our President, who we worked very hard to get elected, and then re-elected, "Barry." It's a sign of disrespect.

Most of us will give you the benefit of the doubt, because you are new here, and maybe you did not know any better. And, you apologized. Anyone who doesn't give you the benefit of the doubt is probably not worth your time worrying about anyway.

I know. "Barack" sounds so official, it just doesn't roll off the tongue. Imagine not being able to call other Democratic presidents "Jimmy" or "Bill". There's nothing enduring about William the Big Dog, or James the Moral Conscious of the Nation.

Maybe we could call him "the Big O". Surely that wouldn't have any negative connotations.
