Frankly, I didn't have the will power to stop cold turkey, but my e-cigarette has made quitting smoking a breeze! The first week was a little bit of a transition, but after that it was downright easy. I have literally smoked ONE cigarette in the past 3 months...AND IT TASTED TERRIBLE!!
To anyone thinking of trying to quit by using an e-cigarette, I definitely recommend it :) Just wanted to share!!
(On a side note, I've heard it's important to invest in a half decent e-cigarette; the little gas station "blu" e-cigarette isn't anywhere close to the same quality of a real one. I think my starter kit was $50, but it was enough for 2 people, not 1)

After I quit cold turkey I thought it'd be nice to have an e-cig around to appease my urges. We bought a super cheapie one from over seas (China made knock off I don't remember what it was called exactly) It was actually nice. But I stopped using them after I started inhaling the actual liquid into my mouth. I'm guessing the cotton inside the ends that absorbed it just kind of ran out. Idk. I stopped using it a longgg time ago. Still cig free :)
I quit smoking cold turkey BUT every once in awhile Ive used an e-cig in times of high stress (like when we thought my dad was gonna die even the drs pretty much said it) and the E-swisher brand wasn't that bad.
Oh some of them have nicotene in them the E-swishers and 21st century disposables do. I never tried a rechargable one.

I was lucky. A little shop opened up in my town that specializes in e-cigarettes. 250+ flavors and a wide variety of customizable "vaporizers." After getting to try them out for myself, I realized that it was a very viable option. My flavors now are Creme de Menthe, Blueberry, Watermelon, and Peppermint. What I most love is that it only costs me about $5/week total :)
I've thought about trying them. I just don't know what to get or how to start or whatever and that's already too much work. So I walk into the smoke shop and get my usual lol.
