Guess I started a bit of a hot topic in another thread on my use of the E-cig (vaping) vs the use of Analogs, or real tobacco type cigs. Thought maybe a dedicated thread would help get other threads back in track.
BTW: I sooo wanted to make this the Official e-cig thread. Hahahha

I'm a vapor of e-liquid cigs! I started w Blue (they're horrible), and now I do the Torpedo by Hotvapes.com. Bought Torpedo pack at a local smoke shop and it's just like a cig !

My mother Vaped and it helped her quit smoking two years ago. I'm SO PROUD OF HER! She smoked for 50 years! 50! FIVE ZERO!

She's doing awesome now. No more Vaping for her no more cigs either!

MY MOM ROCKS!

People here at work Vape at their desks. It doesn't bother me but others complain. You smell nothing and you don't know their doing it unless you stand watch.

No fruity smell? I guess they have flavorless too. There was a young couple in front of me in line for the 5s who were chain-vaping Concord grape for much or the twelve hours. It was pretty strong. Grapes will probably always remind me of the iPhone launch day experience.

No. No smell at all. I guess they have the old timey ones that first came out without flavor or scent.

Or....wait a second! Maybe that's what the candy smell I smell sometimes is. ROFLMAO! HA! I should ask this one guy if he has a flavored vapor cig. LOL! Yup out of all the folks who do it, he would be the one with a flavored one. Now I want to know!

Now, you @Europa will always have fond Grape scented memories around launch time forever and ever.

I don't smoke, but I'm wondering how well this technology will work with that which will be legal and commercially available in Colorado on January 1.

Marijuana? I thought that was already legal there? I don't think this type of pipe would work with that. It uses drops of (often flavored) liquid with nicotine that produce water vapor.

Legal to own, not legal to sell (Until Jan 1) unless for medical use.

99% use a combination of PG / VG a flavor concentrate and nicotine ( you can get 0 nic level). Hating coil vaporizes the PG/VG giving you the vapor.
There are dry burning type devices that some have used for 'herbs'

I use a Tornado Tank by Totally Wicked. I used to smoke the original tobacco flavour but it made my throat sore, now I use either Watermelon flavoured or Dr Pepper flavoured liquid. Use mine most of the time at work.

Sharunda, thx for this--so so encouraging. I've smoked almost 38yrs! How old was she when she quit?

LMAO ! This is too funny ! You waited in line for 12 hrs for the 5s?! Where I live (Washington, DC metro area) they were avail for a while. However, after a week they were out of 32GB and I had to get the 64GB that I really don't need.

Yeah, I did, but only because they didn't do launch day preorders this year. And if I hadn't I wouldn't have gotten one at all on launch day. They sold out fast in Vegas. The second half of the line didn't get one. I wanted one on launch day and waiting in line was the best way to secure one.

@Redhotchili

As a matter of fact, I got that info wrong. I talked to my mother yesterday and I mentioned to her how proud I was of her quitting smoking and she told me she had been smoking for 54 YEARS! WHAT?!?! ROFLMAO! OMG! 54 YEARS! So not 50 like I previously stated.

She also told me it's been almost three years since she quit not just two. So to finally answer your question, she was 63 when she quit. She was not a teen when she started. It may have started one a day or when she could sneak it and as she got older it was just what she did. I remember seeing a pic of her when she was 19 she had a cigarette in her hand in the pic.

@Redhotchili
You can do it! You can quit! Just start loving those vapor cigs like they were your new spouse!
