Ok, as I said been off the fags since Feb as a result of using e-cigs. I was increasingly getting short of breath and coughing, also went down with bronchitis twice in 3 months, so on impulse, went an ordered a starter kit of the web.
I'd previously tried the look alike e-cig which frankly did not work! Taste was meh, battery life was pants and it didn't hit the spot IYSWIM. So did a bit of research and ordered a starter kit similar to this: http://www.vapeescape.co.uk/Basic-Vaping-Kits/Kanger-Esmart/Esmart-Kit.html
comes with 2 batteries so one can be on charge whilst the other is used.
I'd actually now recommend this though: http://myepack.co.uk/kits/mini-protank-kit.html
Battery has a longer life and the tank is far more durable. Obviously I'd recommend 2 of these dfor the reasons above.
All you then need is some liquid to put in it. Depends on how heavy a smoker you are as to the strength you should get, I started on 24mg liquid, but have since cut this to 18mg as I found it a bit strong pretty soon after I started. As to what flavour, that's down to you, there are literally hundreds of flavours out there. I tend to like a slight sweetness in my vapour, but also have recently got into some specialist tobacco flavours. A lot of people really like fruity flavours as well as menthol/mint, your choice really!
A good supplier is http://www.ecigwizard.com/
. They have an extensive range and are very prompt with delivery, next day to your door! Their Redwood Blend is one of my all day liquids at the minute.
There is a good thread on BC that's been resurrected recently http://www.blatchat.com/t.asp?id=230942
It has a link to a comprehensive video review on the ins and outs of e-cigs here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cMjrsko_7Ps&feature=player_embedded
I've tried all sorts of methods to give up in the past and non worked, so, do they work? I can only answer with a most definite yes!!!
