E-Cigs/ Vaping??

Postby Roxron » Thu Dec 17, 2015 7:44 pm

For ages I've been asking my husband to stop smoking and he is now starting to think with the help of an E-Cigarette he could do it! So wanting to jump on this opportunity I thought I'd buy him one to try asap! Initially I'd rather not buy an expensive kit but instead a disposable one from behind the counter in supermarkets, chemists etc..

So my question is can anyone suggest disposable makes to try or makes to avoid?
He currently smokes @ 10per day quite mild cigarettes.

Thanks in advance

Sorry - this is my first post! I have been a lurker for a while now...

Having successfully quit in one single day using a "proper" e-cig/vape, and fiiiinally managed to get hubby to do the same, I do recommend it!
There might not be one near you, but the best thing is to pop into a proper e-cig shop (not the stands at shopping malls) for advice. There is one in Hammersmith I can recommend.
The normal e-cigs can help but they are so unpleasant I never managed to stick with it. The point is not to "replicate" a cigarette but to find something that is really user friendly and satisfying, to make it easy to quit and even enjoyable.
For what it's worth my husband has an e-grip which looks masculine and he loves it. Models start from £50 and good quality, French made liquids start around £10, at 10 a day it would pay for itself within a couple of weeks.

Anyway, that's my 2 pence worth. Good luck!

The one downside I can think of is that it means more convenient smoking (i.e. on the sofa in the evening, in bed etc) so can end up increasing consumption!

House of Vapes in Clapham Junction can provide proper advice and they also let you try devices and flavours. It's like a 1-2-1 consultation and you walk away with the kit that's right for you. I have now been smoke free for over 6 months - so would highly recommend a visit. Not that expensive either (£30 for a decent device).

Let it try, I heard people stopping smoking tabaco with the help of e-cigars.

I don't advise you to buy cheap sets. They are of very poor quality. I am sure that because of this your husband will not like them. You shouldn't buy the most expensive sets, but the cheapest sets are also a very bad choice. They will only spoil the taste and cause disgust. Thus, your husband will return to cigarettes again. The same advice applies to vaping liquid as well. Choose only high-quality liquid from trusted brands. If you have friends vapers, then ask them about where they buy. You should also choose a good liquid. For example, I use Naturally Extracted Tobacco E-liquids. Since I used to smoke cigarettes, I really like it. I think your husband will like it too
