Good philosophy! And i agree with it whole heartily!

I love it and have cut down from smopking a pack and a half to about 5 a day with the help of the e-cig! To ban the e-cig would ultimately lead to more deaths due to smoking cigarettes! I'm glad the e-cig came out and please let's all fight to keep the government from banning these e-cigs since they care not for our safety but the money they generate from cigarette taxes etc.. Please everyone let's keep this e-cig around since I know me quitting cigarettes was just a dream before the e-cig became available as a safer alternative and now thanks to e-cig I believe and can c myself quitting permanently cigarettes! Thank you e-cigs and please stay around forever! You have made my life better and healthier! Thank you forever I'm greatful!!

US Senator Lautenberg, the guy who kick started this global ambush on E-cigs a few weeks ago, by demanding the US FDA do what Health Canada has done. Let's expose the underside of that
Lautenberg turd and we find that Lautenberg is joined at the hip with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, which is Johnson & Johnson's NGO, and the main source of funds for global anti-smoking, to the tune of over $ 440 MILLION so far, while of course it's 'parent' makes BILLIONS from their various anti-smoking products. Johnson & Johnson also owns Pfizer, the maker of the Nicotine Inhaler. Now - it turns out that Lautenberg has approved numerous gov't grants to RWJF over the years, and, received campaign donations from the same eople. Meaning - those most against the Electronic Cigarette are the very same people who will lose the most because of Electronic Cigarettes, and the very same people behind the global anti-smoking and anti-ecigs campaigns. What really pisses me off is that the global so-called news industry refuses to report these facts.- Steve Hartwell -

E-cigs totally undermine the entire purpose of smoking bans, the bottom line.

Honestly our government just keeps getting more and more corrupt and im sick of it. This is just politics and anyone with half a brain can see politics run this so called free country. All they care about is the revenue we produce for them. Not us.

You guys have got the right idea. Thanks for all the information, I have deducted from this site that E-Cigs are a lot safer an alternative than cigarettes. Its big tobacco companies that are shaking in their boots knowing that people are going to stop buying them once they figure out that you can have the nicotine you need, without 4000+ poisons in them.

I smoke my E-Cig all day. I never really care to quit smoking; however, it just not acceptable in public places. So now I use smoke free e-cig and it really works. it took me about two days to get use to it and now I am a changed man. I am so happy that I am able to live in a day and age that something like this can be marketed. Here is the e-cig I use; http://www.smokefreeonline.com/howitworks

I bought an eco cigar about a week ago and have not smoked a regular cigar since, haven't even had a craving to do so. I am using the one called "Libre Leon".

Petaluma, California just passed a smoking ban that INCLUDED electronic cigarettes and stated that they could not be used INSIDE people's own residences!!!
Ridiculous AND unconstitutional!

Please sign my petition to reverse this new law, link above.

I got the Green Smoke brand. I have been using it since the end of Nov. after 5 days I was cigarette free (real cigs). I have noticed that I am using it less and less. I got the lower nicotine level from the start.
I have found this a very very good and comfortable way to stop smoking.
I think I have more cartridges left than I will use. This is good.
I highly recomment these, better than others I have tried.

General, your tagline says "non smoking freedom loving vet." How long have you been a nonsmoker? I ask because it's pretty obvious that you are still obsessed with smoking, even if you aren't doing it right now. So why did you quit?

no fried food, we dont like it and im the only one who will eat the sweets. but theres only me and hubby now.
but im not likely to die from that amount anyway.

i know someone using the E cig. and not sure if its better or not, but i looked it up on the internet and from what i read, its not.

cool turkey is probably the best way to quit, it CAN be done - i know..

You know what's ironic? They cannot ban them. They don't have enough proof why they should.

Two of the four ingredients in the refill juice are already approved by the FDA as legal to use: PG and nicotine, both already found in cigarettes.
This makes them very unhappy. It's proof that the government we have is all too eager to dictate to you what you can and cannot do, what you will and won't use or be addicted to, etc.
Typical.

The most they can do is tax them (like that's anything new!), and even if they tax the refills at 100% its STILL CHEAPER THAN SMOKING!! Ain't that a kick in the teeth?
