First off I gotta say I'm not here to sell anything, I represent no company. Message any of the Flint Town Flyers and they will tell you I am just a bum who spends entirely too much time on the disc course, LOL.
I have smoked since jr. high school, switched to Black and Milds a little over a year ago, smoked 1 to 1 1/2 packs a day.
Just before Christmas I discovered the E-Cigarette. Haven't smoked since...
The E-Cig is a battery powered vaporizer, no smoke only vapor. No tobacco, no laws banning its use anywhere. It uses propylene glycol to simulate smoke(same ingredient as smoke machines). I have researched the safety of vaporized propylene glycol and was surprised to not only find out its pretty damn safe compared to real smoke, but it is actually a very effective airborne bacteria killer. But don't take my word for it, research it yourself.
I have 1 friend that has gotten one so far and he has totally quit smoking too. Don't get me wrong, we are still addicted to nicotine, but with no more smoke my lungs feel great and my sense of smell and taste is coming back. There is also possibly a connection with nicotine stopping different forms of dementia. I personally have never met a person with altimeter's that was a smoker for a majority of their lives. So maybe nicotine isn't that bad of a thing if you separate it from the carcinogens in the smoke.
I've tried several times to quit, tried the gum and some stupid pill that just made me wired. Nothing ever came close to filling the void like the e-cig.
Here is the best forum discussing them:
Here are the sites that I personally have ordered from with no problems:
I have tried the "penstyle" and the "mini" and I gotta say, the penstyle is much better, longer battery life and the cartridges with the nicotine juice are much bigger.
Good luck quitting smoking to all my fellow disc golfers. :)
