We use them, we're on the e-lites. Easy to get a hold of in a lot of newsagents round here and canny priced.
I quit over 2 years ago using an ecig - best thing I have ever bought. I still use it with high nic juice though, but at least no murders have been committed
I tend to use Electronic Cigarettes | Vaping Devices | Accessories | E-Liquid (10% discount code: Allabout)for my cartomisers - the new vision ego are excellent, and buy my juice from Enjuice (5% discount code: UKV89) and am addicted to their cafe tabac
A decent kit will work out better and cheaper in the long run than the ciggy lookalikes. Once you have a couple of decent batteries and a atomiser/clearomiser/cartomiser, or tank system, together with a juice you like, depending what and where you buy your juice it's very cheap. If you read the the 2 main uk forums there's plenty of advice/reviews/vendor offers.....as an orange coloured bloke once said on telly....it's cheap as chips.
I did EAT all the pies, then pinched the chocolate and crisps
Hi, I have been off ciggies (analogues) for 6 weeks now and have been using electronic cigarettes since then. I was a two pack a day girl too. At the beginning I was messing having real cigs and using the vaper but now Im on it full time I would never go back because I much prefer it for lots of reasons
It's cleaner - no mucky ashtrays and no fag ash and nicotine fog in my car
It doesnt smell horrid like fags - so consequently neither does my house or car
It is much cheaper as I was spending a fortune every week on cigarettes - more than £3.5k year
I have stopped coughing and my lungs dont hurt now
I can use it most anywhere .. even in hotel rooms! No more running outside in the rain!
No poisons either ... just the nicotine
No last minute borderline panic attack when I'm nearly out of fags to go to the shops and restock up on ciggies - yes, driving out to the garage at 5 am in the morning
My non smoking, cigarette hating husband is off my case!
Also, the e fag is kind of cool!
Much better all around. If you are thinking of switching I would recommend that you definately try it. It took me a couple of weeks to get used to it and you have to find the right kit and flavour for you but once I did I never looked back.
Ill never buy another packet of cigarettes. Ever! xx

I used the e cig last year it hurt my throat but I carried on, lasted a couple of months with it but returned to normal cigs as for me it was a substitute and I considered myself still a smoker. Quit cold turkey in November, had one night off in jan but nothing since.
wk 1 - 13 lb
1st goal - BMI 30
2nd goal - loose 2st by May 10th
3rd goal - BMI 25
4th goal - be a size 10
i use VIP e cigarettes and i haven't had a ciggy since december 2012, prior to that i'd had one or two cigs in 12 months, whilst using the e cigs so im sticking wtih the e cigs now, i find them very useful as a substitute and whilst im obviously still addicted to nicotine i'd sooner have it that way than smoke real ciggies with all the nasties in them
I quit 10 weeks ago today using an e cig. Got the £20 one from tescos and then buy the 3 pack of cartridges for £7. I used the e cig for 6 weeks then felt strong enough to go without x
I find the e cigarettes great. The biggest motivation though, is the reason you quit in the first place. My mum died recently and I wondered what gift I could give her, knowing how much she loved me, I thought I'd quit smoking and join slimming world as she would have wanted me to look after myself now she isn't able to. It's the best decision I've made, I haven't smoked now for three months
Week one ..... Lost 3 pounds
Week two .......Lost 2 pounds
Week three......Lost 1 pound
Week four .......Lost 3 pounds
Week five ..... Stayed the same
Week six ...... Missed class
Week seven .... Gained 1pound
Week eight ...... Lost 2 pounds
I am using an e-cig at the moment, been one whole week off the cigs I am using mine quite a lot, as a replacement for normal cigarettes. Is this alright? I will eventually drop the nicotine but I'm not ready to yet. I want to be securely off the fags! Is this alright do you think?
I'm on it!

I've just started using a vip e cig...... so far, so good, acutally prefer the taste to normal taste of ciggies.
I do not really agree to use electronic cigarettes because it is a misleading way to avoid smoking. The nicotine will be always around them . I do smoke and i know a lot of people using electronic cigarettes and sometimes they still having a smoke because it is quiet difficult to stop in this electronic way!!! the nicotine is easy to consume but difficult to stop it.
Any way, good luck for people are using the electronic. Ñ==
