Hsve any of you tried them? I got a "Joye 510" last week and so far it's great. Any other "vapers" out there?

1. I've thought about trying those.
Just for a quick nicotine fix at work though. I quit cigarettes a few years ago, actually switched to cigars. I only smoke two cigars a day usually and don't inhale. It is a little hard to make all the way through a work day when I don't have time for a cigar.

2. I'm not sure why this topic got down-rated, but...
e-cigarette-forum.com is great for those of us looking at options.

I'm happy so far, but e-cigs are a pain in the ass at first, lol.

10. Add a little to the cartridge as soon as it starts tasting
bad. I probably juice a cartridge 5 or 6 times. It prolongs the life and really enhances the flavor.

11. My goddaughter is 18 and diagnosed with schizophrenia and smokes.
It has been found that 90% of schizophrenics are smokers which is far higher than the general population because in reality what they are doing is self medicated since the nicotine actually helps their thought process. The downside is that smoking is now very expensive and schizophrenics often end up spending a good portion of their income on cigarettes.

For Christmas her mother gave her some e-cigarettes so she could get the nicotine without all of the carcinogenic crap from tobacco cigarettes. She got a starter kit from Smoke 51: http://www.smoke51.com/catalog/duo/cartridge/prod_5.htm...

Here is a YouTube review of Smoke 51: http://www.e-cigarette-forum.com/forum/video-reviews/44...

Here is an e-cigarette buying guide/comparison: http://www.e-cigarette-forum.com/forum/video-reviews/44...

My goddaughter really likes her e-cigarettes and their cost would be an equivalent of $1.50 a pack so it is much cheaper than tobacco cigarettes. I just ordered her some more filters last night and they come in various nicotine amounts (0mg, 4mg, 6mg, 8mg, 12mg and 16mg) so it is possible to wean off from the nicotine. I checked online and found a site which gave coupons for the Smoke 51 and I saved 51% off my total amount.

13. Thanks for the links!
I have someone that could use that information. I had no idea that high a percentage of schizophrenics smoked.

14. Yes, but the irony is that their level of lung cancer is lower than the general population.
They are hurt by higher rates of heart disease and other tobacco related cancers. Ultimately it is the nicotine that helps them so they don't need the other bad stuff in cigarettes.

Here is an e-cigarette forum: http://www.ecigarettes365.com/forum/

12. The radio commercials annoy the ever living hell out of me.
"They look just like the real thing, and when you inhale--LOOK! (puff!)--real rings of water vapor come out!"


No, I cannot look and see because it's a RADIO commercial, dumbass.
