e cigarette ?

Anyone tried any of the electronic cigarettes? I had heard of them, but last week my Doctor actually suggested I try one to help me stop smoking. Yesterday I bought the "No. 7" starter pack, and I haven't had a real cigarette since 4:00 yesterday afternoon. I am 35 years into this addiction so I know not to celebrate just yet, but so far it's really interesting. Tastes pretty good after the first 3 or 4 sessions with it. Seems to satisfy the nicotine need. I may like it so much that I won't quit smoking but just replace real with e. Just wondering if anyone out there has any experience. Here's the brand I got: E Cigarettes, Electronic Cigarettes, Wholesale E Cigs by No.7

Been off cig's about 6 months(DW and I). No more smoke smell in the F53, no more burn holes in carpet or furniture, no more dirty ash trays. Can even smoke in bed and on airlines. Joy E 510, direct from China. Cheaper. My Dr. did not know what I was talking about when he asked if I smoked, I had replied yes and no.

My doctor asked me if I smoked...I said no...I don't. DH does. There isn't enough Febreze or similar products to take care of the after smell.

I stopped smokin a couple of years ago plus a few months. I had smoked for about 50 years so you could say '' I had the habit''..... Willa is a nurse and she asked me to stop.. she didnt nag at me she just said that she didnt want to lose me and I should live longer if I would quit. One morning I went fishin and started to ''light up''...... I thought to myself '' Why the heck am I doing this'' and I went back to the coach and handed her my lighter. I told her that I was going to stop smoking for a while and sex would take my mind off of ''ciggies''....Since then our sex life has been great and I havent smoked a ciggie in a long time. My suggestion ....TRY SEX AS AN ALTERNATIVE TO SMOKING.
If you use this valuable information you must pay me ten cents the next time you see me.......

I stop smoking in 2007, I used Chan-Trex, I don't miss it nor do I have the "need" for one, it took about 3 weeks for me to do it. I am glad I did it too. Hope you the best

We watched a close friend suffer and die not quite a year ago from smoking. She was only 48 years old. Anyone who is quitting I wish you the best luck for success. If you smoke please do your friends and family a favor and try to quit.

I quit many years ago and can say it was one of the hardest things I ever did but you can do it. Take the money you save and buy a new car. That is about what cigarettes are getting to cost.

DW has been down to zero nicotine now for several months. We probably can get a better insurance rates even on the RV. If I keep busy I even forget about the e-cig after 60 years of smoking. The best part is still no "mess and smell". With the two of us the money savings really add up fast.

your right about the smell & the burn holes from hot ashes, I am so glad I stop smoking, back then it was the thing, no one knew, today, its just plain ole dumb, but once started its so hard to stop, its even harder when people around you still smokes. but your on the right track, one step at a time. as for me i don't even pick up a cigar I just stay away from all of it.
