A good friend of mine has been getting electronic cigarettes since they first came out. He has gotten quite a few different brands (including; Green Smoke, White Cloud, Blu, South Beach Smoke, and Lucy). Luckily for me, he let me try them all before I purchased one for myself. After testing them all out I first narrowed it down to my top three choices (White Cloud, Green Smoke, & the V2 Cigs e-cigarette) and from there between price and features offered I decided to get the V2 Cigs e-cigarette.
Originally, I bought a vaporizer thinking it would help wean me off smoking altogether, but it ended up doing the opposite. Towards the end, when I was smoking cigarettes, it felt more like a chore. There was really no more enjoyment in it (though when did I ever enjoy it), and I had tried quitting cold turkey so many times before, but all it would take was one major incident to stress me out, and I was back at the store for another pack. I was going to transition to e-cigarettes, but after a few people ending up on the news after their e-cigarettes blew up in their faces, I decided it wasn’t worth the risk. I mean regular cigarettes are bad, but I never ended up in the hospital because of one. I’m not big on medications either, so I wouldn’t even consider the patch. So, I just put it in my mind that I was going to space out my cigarette breaks until eventually I didn’t feel the urge to smoke anymore, however long that would be.
