Q&A: Is the e cigarette a good alternative?

Question by Chris: Is the e cigarette a good alternative?
I’m a pretty heavy smoker, about a pack a day, and i was wondering about e cigarettes. What is it like? Is it airy and unsatisfying, or will i be able to just substitute it completely for actual smokes? What kind feels the most real?

Best answer:

Answer by kali boi
to me it was unsatisfying but that is not why i stopped using it. a study came out claiming that it is just about as harmful as regular cigs. there are many added chemicals and you are inhaling pure nicotine so they have been getting some bad reports.

What do you think? Answer below!

  1. First, lets just get this MIS-information cleared up. NO study came out claiming they are “just about as harmful as regular cigs”

    FALSE: “a study came out claiming that it is just about as harmful as regular cigs”
    The FDA released an incomplete report highlighting partial results they found and omitting the comparison to real cigarettes. They also omitted any comparison of findings to FDA approved NRT products. The only thing “bad” they found was trace amounts of diethelyne glycol (sp?), attributable to contamination in manufacturing. They found this trace amount in only 1 of the 18 cartridges tested from one company.

    FALSE: “there are many added chemicals and you are inhaling pure nicotine so”
    Most liquids contain only a few ingredients and comes with or without nicotine; all of the ingredients are individually FDA approved as generally safe for human consumption.

    TRUE: “they have been getting some bad reports”
    Well yeah, there is too much mis-information and outright lies floating around perpetuated by ignorance and people who are too lazy to do even a little research!

    Ok so now that we’ve straightened that out…

    After smoking for over 30 years, I had no problem switching over to e-cigs fairly quickly. Once you find a good model that fits your needs it was easy and fun for me to make the switch. That was almost 10 months ago!
    I would recommend that BEFORE you spend any money (unlike me) you do a little research on different models to find the one that you think will be best for you and your budget.
    The best advise I got was to hit some forums and read and talk to real people (not affiliates or sales people) to learn and help. Even check out some videos on you tube or vapetube.com

    Here’s a couple of forums I couldn’t have done without (and still can’t) Great people and information. Vapersforum.com and e-cigarette-forum.com

    Take your time, learn, shop, and go for it! You’re going to love vaping!
    (sorry for the wall of text) LOL
