    Vaping vs smoking

    I keep seeing these dire warning about e-cigs. I think that is bullshit. Tobacco companies would like to peddle that.

    He doesn't talk about e-cigs, but I remember this expose on how EVIL tobacco companies are:



    Anyway, what do you think? I noticed a long time ago that I don't even want a whole cigarette the majority of the time. I want a few hits of nicotine and then I'm good. Which the vape allows me to do w/o throwing away or relighting (ew) cigs.

    And there is just no conceivable way they an be worse or even nearly as bad, in my view. I am very excited with this.

    I have been sick of smoking for a long time and I can't afford it either. A cartridge for the vaper I have is the same price as a pack but is lasting me much longer. And I think over time I will use it less and less.

    I spend about $25 a month on cigarettes and smoke all the time.

    Plus, my tobacco is not loaded with chemicals.

    Personally, e-cigs don't do it for me, I couldn't see switching to those, but I believe that they are better than tailor-mades and if one can successfully switch they should.

    Perhaps if I had to go back to tailor-made it would be a more viable alternative for myself, because I can't smoke them now without being harshed-out by the chemicals.

    They taste like someone put ground plastic in them, although these smokers are immune to the taste and never really taste what they are smoking.

    Thx

    How do you swing that?

    I have a friend who buys unbranded smokes from the NA casino, but I don't care for them too much, tbh.

    From what I remember of cigarette taste, the only difference between brands seemed to be the filter.

    Not that I care today. I quit all tobacco (and thus all smoking) 21-1/2 years ago, and do not miss a thing. After the first month, I was completely fine, so it was totally worth it.

    April 1 our cost for a carton goes up from $40+ to $60+...these are the lowest cost off-brands. The big 'name brands' have been around $50 a carton for months. I'll be quitting my only vice April 1, or whenever I run out of what I have.

    Do you do "roll-your-own"? They never packed right for me.

    I used to smoke a lot when I drank all the time, but have cut it down to 5 or so a day after I quit. Bad habit.

    I tried to do the vaporizer for a bit but it just made me crave a cigarette even more.

    A pound of tobacco lasts me two months, that comes to less than $10 a month and rolling papers are about $15 a month for ten packs of 100.

    And if given the choice I will always take one of my own rollies over a tailor-made.

    Thx

    Someone was vaping and I tried to pass close enough to their fog to see if it had any scent.

    I did not pick up any...but I also get not get so close as to freak the people out either.

    Does the fog have flavor or smell?

    I don't think it's tobacco companies. Someone still has to produce the nicotene.

    Really...I wish you the best in that pursuit. I hope to be joining you soon (and you would probably think I'm nuts if I told you what I'm paying per pack here). Quitting cigs is the hardest thing in the world for me, but I've given myself some added incentive with the promise to buy an American Standard Telecaster if I can make it a year (I'll have saved more than enough money to pay for it by then).

    Good thing I have a few other vices to pick up the slack.
