    Thanks for the replies, I still can't get it to work. It was quite a cheap one and it's got wire wrapped around the wick, I wonder if it's something to do with where that is?

    Noted! Any other non-sweet flavours that you enjoy?

So it is sweet I suppose, but it's got a sort of a sour fizzy taste as well? Hard to describe! Oh and I do love pear drops! Do you like fruity ones? I've heard that tangerine is a lovely one. Oh, and LT e-cigs do a lovely one called BLM which is blackcurrant, liquorice and menthol.

    I've tried the ecigs that look like cigarettes in the past, and tbh I burned them out too quickly.

    Have just bought a couple of cheap EGOs from ebay, and so far so good.

    Don't know if this has been mentioned before, but Home Bargains have some cheap ejuice in stock at £1.99 for 10ml/18mg. The blueberry is quite nice as is the menthol, although it's more like a stick of rock than menthol, but both very refreshing flavours. Before this one I was stuck on tobacco ones, so happy to be having a change. Aniseed one is totally addictive though

    Well done you, you're giving me hope for myself. I too am a heavy smoker, and rather pleased with how well I'm doing too. Day 11

    Wish I hadn't wasted money on those cheaper ecigs though, these ones are ace

    Just quit smoking all together - i know its tough, took me a year...

    But, not having that demand in my head, smell in my clothes and breath & extra cash in my pocket is fantastic

    good luck

    Works for some, if you're in the right frame of mind. Well done you for doing it. Doesn't work for others, sadly. I've recommended e-cigs to about 8 people altogether and ALL have successfully quit the stinkies with e-cigs. E-cigs aren't harmful. They're nothing to be ashamed of. And we still get all the benefits you mention. My vaping habit now costs me about £20 a month instead of over £220 and is no more harmful to me than a cup of coffee. What's wrong with people using an alternative?

    And it took precisely 3 weeks after discovering e-cigs to quit the stinkies completely. Which probably works out a tad cheaper than taking a year to do it....?

    I've been using a Kanger Pro Tank 2 for the past week.

    I'm unsure if life can get any better. It's brilliant

    Although having just seen the duel coiled Pro Tank 3 on MyEPack..... I'm spending too much on this now

    Got some 2 & 1 mm silica and 1 mm Ekowool winging it's way to me as well.

    Can anybody recommend any small EGO batteries? Talking length wise here so don't mind if they're a bit chunky. AAEC says there's 400 mah batteries but I can't find any. For out n about with my EVODs.

    ecigs are the way forward
    Hi,

    I smoked for 20 odd years and never thought i'd be able to quit, found it really easy using ecigs. Admittedly for me the push came from losing a relative to lung cancer, was a really horrible way to go and i wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy.

    If your considering quitting the definitely ecigs are the way forward.

    Smoking E-Cigarettes
    I'm not a heave smoker. In fact, I don't smoke on most days but when I decide to have a few beers, I very much enjoy a few smokes. I've read that some people who were once heave smokers have been able to stop smoking 'proper' cigarettes and instead smoke electronic cigarettes. I would like to try it out myself and hopefully, the next day I won't have a tight chest and much coughing. Has anybody on here tried them? I understand a decent 'set-up' will cost you as much as £50. I'm looking for advice on what to purchase and the cost and cost of re-filling etc. Thank you.

    I'm not getting much of a response on here. :-(
