Using E-cig to quit smoking

Please note: This is not a paid advertisement. I purchased this from a local shop. I am sharing this info in order to help others. And record my results from use. And things I have to learn. There are so many devices and liquids.  I know the on going cost of the device that looks like a cig is too much for me.

I bought  (Vapor X EGO ce4 electronic cigaret), on May 4, 2013.
I had hope this would help me quit smoking. I have a niece in Tennessee, who has had great success with Vaping.

(Vaping definition)  Propylene Glycol or Vegetable Glycerin or a mix of both based liquids, are mixed with small amounts of nicotine and flavoring that get vaporized in a small battery powered atomizer. 

 I at first experienced coughing and choking. It took many tries to get use to this. I am now almost 24 hours free of regular  cigarets. This morning I woke up with a sore throat. I took a honey and lemon cough drop. It helped.

 Yesterday, I put on a nicotine patch to help with with draw.  I had to mix about .2ml chocolate flavor with 1.4ml USA mix. To make the taste more pleasant. These too are VaporX brand products. Both are 50/50 Pv/VG. ( I used a total of about 1.4ml liquid.)

I have been researching the web and watching videos. To learn more. like (Why an I coughing?) I found the coughing can be a way your body is riding its self of tobacco toxins. Or an allergy to PV. I can not get VG base in my area. So I may have to order online. But I am finding I have less congestion in my lungs.  The taste is not like normal brands of tobacco. It is like comparing real chocolate to fake chocolate. I can tell the difference. I even had to learn to inhale differently at first to get use to this. I found it easy to take a puff in through the mouth hold it. Then breath in through the nose to get deep inhale to the lungs with clean air.Then slowly exhale the smoke from the mouth and nose like a normal cig. After a while you are able to inhale the smoke. Try small amounts at a time. When your lungs get cleaner it is easier. I found self talk helps allot. Telling your self this will be good. This is better for your health. But I do not know if this is the truth or a lie. Not enough research or facts to prove it. We are all Guinea pigs. paying to test the products on our self. Only time will tell.

But I have to do this. Cigarets are not killing me. They are only damaging my lungs.

I have quit many times, only to go though some event that triggers my need for a cig. So If I use this device rather than a real cig to fall back on. My lungs may benefit.And my mind will have to learn to be satisfied.

I soon will do a utube video on this.
I would love to test out and review other flavors and E-cigs. I saw where some of the videos were sent products to try out and review. Some of them were so fake. And some were honest. But I think some reviews were educational. And that is what I want to do. Help save people the hours of researching to find out what to buy. .Or they already spent way too much money on what they thought was permanent, only to find it is an on going expense.

 I bought This for $24.99
This it there description of the product. Not my words.
  The eGo CE4 Provides a Superior "Throat Hit" over the competition. This device is designed for customers who like a strong throat hit but still have good flavor. The clearomizer holds 1.6ml of e-Liquid combined with a 650mah battery it is considered the "All Day Lollipop" for adults. This is the same unit we offer in Blister Pack  but comes in a Carrying case instead. This device is simple to use and doesn't leak e-Liquid all over your purse or clothing.
• 1-Clearomizer: Average Life is 3-4 weeks
• 1-650mah Battery: Good for 350 recharges (Usage is 8-10 hours between recharges)
• 1-usb Charger
• 1-Carrying Case: Available in Black
• 1-10ml Bottle of USA Mix 18mg e-Liquid


My words:
 You have to replace every thing except the case and charger. The charger is only for usb. So you have to buy an adapter for direct wall plug.

I bough a 2nd clearomizer for $9.99 So I could have 2 flavors. The second one is no where as good as the original. It may have too much air and or a leak.  I also may get another battery so I can charge one and use one. So more cost. You really need a kit with 2 of each.
Update: 5/13
I took this back and they replaced the 2nd one that was defective, and gave me a new deluxe kit. With 2 of each.and another e liquid for only $24.99 more.  Good customer service at the store in my area.

Here is a link to my utube video. It would not let me place on the blog for some reason.

 Have a wonderful day and remember to laugh and play.Photobucket

Good on you for trying to quit. A friend of mine uses these but she isn't going to stop. She will use these forever instead of quitting. I hope they help you quit and eventually you can quit these too! Lots of luck to you xxxx

I bought an E-cigg a few days ago and so far I'm okay with the results, it's easier on my lungs and the knot in my throat but it's too soon to tell if it will help me stop smoking.

On the other hand I'm 69 years old so maybe it doesn't make any difference.

Good for you! I hope things are working out with this e-cigg. Must be hard to quit.

My daughter had much success with a similar kit. May it continue for you, too. I'll check out that video next! Well Done!

I've had mine for a while now and it's not working so well for me, nothing works for me, I just flat have to stop any kind of smoking or kill myself smoking.
