    Default Anyone have any luck with the E-Cigg.??

    ..OK I will admit it, I am a smoker, I looooove to smoke!!!! I have smoked for over 30 years. For breakfast I have a cup of coffee and a cigg. For the first time in my life (besides when I was pregnant) I think I want to quit. I am also Asthmatic, so imagine this, I use my inhaler when I am tight so that I can smoke, how pathetic is that??

    Tonight I went to the tobacco store to buy a pack of ciggs and talked to them a long time about the Electronic cigg. I ended up buying one. I am really going to try to at least cut down with this thing

    Question. Has anyone tried one and what was your results?????

    I've never tried it, I quit about 9 years ago..cold turkey n was lucky. What I can offer you is this: remember, your body has developed a need for the nicotine. It can take up to 72 hours initially for the physical urge to smoke to begin to dissipate ...peaking at about 48 hours. Then the struggle is mental. Try to identify your triggers..what makes you want o smoke (aside from the physical part) The emotions from smoking, the hand gestures, oral etc. keep a journal daily if you can about how you feel, urges etc so you know what is going on w you. Most quitters end up going back in 3 months ..mark that on your calendar so you have good support when those triggers you have pop back up, or new ones decide to show their ugly heads. Change up your routines.,if you are used o smoking in your blue chair in the living room, move it to a different spot, have your breakfast in a different spot etc...sometimes ppl have had to rearrange everything to combat triggers. You can do it if you try...I have faith in you. We can do anything if we really try and have support! Also...a physical urge actually lasts 7-10 minutes..physically..it's the mental part that kicks in n makes it seem like hours. You can talk yourself n rough an urge as well as talk to someone else about it to help!

    I don't think they had e cigarettes back when I quit about 15 years ago. When I finally set my mind to quitting, I used the nicotine gum. I never needed as much as they said I could use and quit using it much sooner than they had in the "plan" Not that I didn't ever crave smoking anymore, but I could at least handle it. But it has to be the right time for you and you have to be committed to really wanting to quit too.

    After a point it was easy to remind myself how much better I feel because I too am asthmatic although that is much less of a problem smoke free.

    Kelly,

    Don't have experience w/the E-cigs personally but I've heard that Vapage E-cigarettes are very good (vs. the "cheaper" kinds you can get at 7-11, for instance).

    I have several friends that have either used them or are using them now. I have not personally tried one but am seriously considering it. The main thins all of them have told me is to be sure you get a good one that you can adjust the settings and levels on to slowly bring the nicotine levels down. I have one friend that his vapor cig is all he uses anymore and another who has gone from 3 packs a day down to half a pack in a month and is planning on dropping the real smokes on the 1st and them the vapor cig on the 1st of September.

    I tried a few things before I was successful quitting, I think the toughest was 'The Patch' do you have ANY idea how hard it is to light those things??????? The final straw for me, I was 'rolling my own' to keep from going broke smoking, and then the government decided 'Well people are rolling their own to save money, since we dont tax loose tobacco much... so we'll increase the tax from like .50 a lb to 20.00 a lb. ! ! ! ! WTF ! ! Oh an guess what they DIDNT increase the tax of...yup you got it Cigars ! (they wont tax what they themselves smoke)

    That is when I quit, but now I notice the loose tobacco is called 'Pipe tobacco' (even though its not for pipes) I guess another way to get around the taxes !

    I think its been... 4 years now.... I'm not really sure

    YAY KELLY!!!!!! We are all behind you hon!!!
    I quit a few years ago when the economy collapsed and I lost my job.... needed to find a quick way to save a lot of money so after about 50 years of smoking I got the patch (which I didnt need) and quit on the spot.

    No luck. Worked out for my boss. They are making it illegal in LA to use e-ciggs indoors to just like regular smoking. You can be prosecuted for smoking within 20 feet of a window or door here. We're such outcast. At least our Bullys love us.

    My little Espresso shop gal has started using one in order to quit and she's having wonderful results. I've heard mixed reviews from others. My one neighbor ("Uncle Fester") said simply, "It not the same.", while puffing on his Marlboro light. Other neighbors just started using them and the jury is still out. My dear friend Barbara is coming up to visit from Walnut Creek, CA in August and I plan on getting one for her and one for me, to try while she's here. She's had a heart attack and I've been diagnosed with emphysema. We are POSTER GIRLS for people who really need to quit smoking. We really do love our cigarettes though! She and I have tried to quit together before.....

    Godspeed to you. I could open a bully rescue with the money I spend on cigarettes. LOL

    Well so far I have used it quite a bit over the last couple of days, along with still smoking, but I have def. cut down some. What I notice is I am coughing my lungs up a little bit more by using this. The $$$ is ridiculous on what I spend on ciggs!! Almost $14.00 a day 7 days a week. I smoke over a pack a day so I always have to buy two.

    My friend uses a combination of the Volcano brand and the Blu brand (Blu has better batteries). She started using them and quit entirely, except for the ecigg and she has been using them for about two years. Good luck to you!!!

    Ive been using an e-cig on and off for the past 3 yrs or so. So far, smoke free for the past 11 mos. Ecigs have really come a long way in terms of technology and have vastly improved these past couple yrs. I started off on the volcano and blu brand, but i found it to be more cumbersome and annoying every time I had to replace the filters. I've been using the provari ever since, and its been great and I havent actually smoked a real cigarette in 11 mos.

    If you'd like to know more, PM me, and ill be more than happy to help you.
