I've been curious about them. This is probably the dumbest question, but do they actually have nicotine in them? How does that work? I've been chewing Copenhagen for three years so they probably won't do a thing for me. Every now and then a cig does sounds nice though.

Interesting. They probably don't hit as hard a regular cigarettes, or do they?

Use an Ego-T with clearomizer and have been of analogs for about 5 months now and don't miss them. You have to be ready to quit and you have to research ecigs beforehand. There are different nicotine levels available. I smoke a pack a day for 25 years and found 24mg too high and would make me dizzy with headaches. The 14mg worked perfect and allowed me to gradually drop down to 0mg.

If anyone has any questions or wants to learn from my experience let me know and I will gladly help. Best thing I have done for myself in a long time.

I ended up buying a larger e-cig from a local business intown who makes there own. The difference was like night and day.

With just the first strike you realize how great of a difference these two products are from one another.
The flavoring was eye opening. It showed me how little I was getting from the blu cigs. Then comes the smoke. It produced double. (Which at times does seem to be a bit much)
There is no prepping the cig to start it off. Just hold the button and begin.
Also my particular one has a on off feature. I never turn mine off so the led stays on and it will go to sleep mode when not in use. But with all that the battery has lasted 24 hours without needing a recharge. (Thats about 500-600 strikes, my cig has a counter)
The storage holds about 300 strikes worth. Its enough to get any regular user through the day.

I will get a photo up soon enough. I just have class in half an hour.

This unit costs 25 bucks. (Shocked me because I got to demo my friends for a day and was ready to put diwn the 60-80 I seen some go for) it doesn't hsve the adjustable voltage like some others but I think it is pre set at 3 if I recall.

I don't know if you can get them anymore but I liked the ones called mystic. But, it ain't the nicotine I crave....so back to Marlboros :-)

You can alter the amount of nicotine you smoke in e-cigs until you are completely down to 0mg. Most people start off with the sub-par models at gas stations and wallymart and walngreens. Those in the know go to the electronic cigarette forums online (do a quick search, you'll find it easy) and there is more info than you ever wanted to know there plus hundreds of suppliers of MUCH better e-cigs and hundreds of flavors. Most start with tobacco flavors since it is most familiar but over half the people quickly realize the other flavors are much more enjoyable (watermelon, pina colada, add a drop of menthol to any flavor). Different' brands and strengths have different throat hits. Most flavors use cooking extracts (flavors from cake section) plus pg and/or vg for filler and vapor. PG is Propylene Glycol is an ingredient in some inhalers and vg is Vegetable Glycerin found in your grocery store. The few people that have reactions to e-cigs is because of the PG. Simply order flavors made with only VG. The forums provide huge support if things don't seem to go well for you, they will get you through it. Take a slower longer drag and the better e-cigs actually have a button switch you press, but it's something you prefer over the auto-switch ones once you gain experience. Start with an Ego model, it has become a standard.
