razors there not that much mate i looked into it for my mum. You can get a starter pack for about $50-60 with all you need for a week or two.

STAL is so happy. HK have finally inspected my ESC and have credited my account with $50 odd dollars. Stal is rubbing his fingers together. Hmmm this rare bear might be coming sooner then i thought.

Lazy day in bali. Ahhh this is the life.

Forget the ecigs there nothing like the real thing, i should know. I was one of the mods on the ecig forum back in the day when it first started. There was about 50 members back then,over the past few years its just got bigger and bigger but if your hoping it will match the cig it doesn't !
For starters they taste nothing like a cigarette and the nic hit takes wwway longer to get in your system because e-cigs dont have all the poisons cigarettes do. these harmful poisons help to speed up the nicotine absorption process. ecigs dont have these poisons so you are endlessly vaping looking for that nic hit having to have the ecig permanently welded to your mouth waiting for the craving to be met.do yourself a favour chaps, bypass the ecigs... pocket the cash... and just give up smoking !

I am 4 months clean now and never felt better. my only regret is i wish i had given up years ago.

Not really. You can buy an ego starting kit which should contain two complete ego's for around 50-60 bucks. The biggest cost once you have the ecigs are getting atomizers and juice. Depending on how much you smoke, it can be a huge savings. I was a 2 pack a day smoker so the cost for me was a pretty big savings. However, I have gotten into mods which are a bit more pricey than the regular ecigs but they do provide a much richer experience for me. I never planed on quitting smoking and when I tried the e-cigs, I was able to quit regular cigs but I still enjoy the experience so I stay with the e-cigs. But mods are a different experience all together, however, many people enjoy using the regular e-cigs and never look back.

Just to explain mods a little bit, just like RC, people like to tinker and create e-cigs out of just about anything they can. There are a lot of different mods out there but they really fall under a couple categories. Box mods, Tube mods, and bottom feeders (AKA some type of juice box). All 3 will usually hold either 1 3.7v battery or 2 batteries that equal 6v. Some have regulators in them that only allow 5v. A tube mod is usually just a round cylinder that holds an atomizer and batteries. A box mod is usually a battery box that holds batteries and an atomizer and a bottom feeder is usually a box that holds a battery and a bottle of juice that will feed the juice up to the atomizer. It is a lot of information to take in at one time as I could go on and on and on about them. That is why for a new person, most will suggest the ego and then you can decide if you like it or maybe want something even more. Anyways, feel free to ask questions, we will answer

That is very subjective. For you, it didnt work. For me, it worked instantly. I enjoy it and don't have to sit here and chain vape. Its all about finding what works for you. Anyways, I dont have a problem with the nic getting into my system. You are right in that it is not as instantaneous as a regular cig but depending on your juice and the mod you have, you dont have to chain vape it to feel satisfied. heck, I started at 36mg and I am now bouncing between 12 and 18mg. As I stated elsewhere though, I enjoy the experience and it is cheaper than smoking and is less harmful so its a win win for me.

See, you were just ready to quit. Nothing wrong with that at all. Being on these for nearly a year, I wouldn't call myself new. If anything, from all that I have read, I missed a lot of crap and came in when everything started getting good

Interesting listening to the ball going backward and forward over the 'Net. (pun/no-pun intended LoL)

One one hand, breaking the nicotine addiction is the ultimate goal.

On the other hand, anything that satisfies that craving has to be plain better than lighting up...

Well, for me, I was not looking to quit smoking. I simply wanted a healthier alternative and this works for me. Many folks have quit using ecigs but that is entirely up to the person.
