E-Cigs: Anybody Using One?
Anybody else tried one of these things? I've been using a Foos E-Vapor for the past week and am digging it. I noticed they'd become quite popular where I work after they decided to allow them there, although you can only use them in dedicated smoking areas.
I decided to try it as an alternative to smoking, but do use the 16mg nicotine juice, which is supposedly the equivalent of the "light" cigarettes I smoked. I will say, I didn't opt for it as an aid to stop smoking, rather as a means to get the smoking experience without all the cost, mess and smell.
It's nice to be able to "smoke" inside the house instead of standing outside freezing my ass off in the cold and dealing with cigarette butts and my car and clothes smelling like cigarette smoke.
Are they safe? I don't know. Opinions abound on the Internet, but, at 51 years of age and after almost 35 years of smoking "analog" cigarettes, I doubt these things are going to kill me.
They nicely replicate the mechanics of smoking a real cigarette, thus I've had no desire to return to regular cigs since I started using it.
I quickly learned the "tobacco" flavored fluids tasted like shit and I've settled on the Almond flavor. A $3.50 bottle of that will last me a week whereas before I was paying over $3.50 every 2 days for cigarettes.
But, knowing my luck, the FDA will probably outlaw them.
I do not intend to endorse or tout them here as a stop-smoking aid or as a "safe alternative" to cigarettes, nor am I interested in what anybody thinks of my health or how I spend my money, but am curious if anybody else on here uses one and what you think of it.
