Does anyone know anywhere in Camden that sells them besides Exxon(former Scotts mkt.)? I bought one from there and it worked really well, but I misplaced the battery for it and they do not sell those. The website I got off the box was no help either. I really don't want to give another $80.00 for the whole set up again just to get another battery. If anyone has any info. that could help I would really appreciate it.

Dixie,

I quit smoking two years ago, so I can't give you much information; however, I can tell you that I've seen those e-cigarettes for sale at the Murphy gas station, the one by Wal-Mart. I don't know if what they have would be compatible to what you have, but it's worth a try to check it out.

Good luck on quitting!

Thank you I will check it out for sure. I quit when I got my E Cig. and I felt better than I had in years, I could actually breathe again. I started back after I lost that dang battery and now I am back to square one. I will get over to Murphy's and see what they have got. Thank you again.

It looks a lot like a real cigarette but it runs off a battery and it doesn't have all the harmful mess in it that the real ones do. You are still getting your nicotine and when you exhale it is water vapor instead of smoke. It is not harmful to others around you and its not as harmful for you as a real cigarette. The one I had was great and it really helped me quit smoking and if I had a "nicotine attack" all I had to do was take a draw or two off my E-CIG and I was fine.

That is simply amazing. My husband smoked when we married but I would not allow him to smoke in our home. He eventually tired of the cold and heat and quit cold turkey and has been smoke free for over 30 years.

The kit arrives within 72 hours, but mine were here in about 48 hours. The refill cartridges are pretty cheap, too

Hello there: I smoked for 36 years. Then tried out different e-cigs. Cigarti is expensive, heavy, too large, and their catrs are crammed full of duds. After all the experimenting I fell in love with Blu Cigs at www.blucigs.com . They look and feel much like the real McCoy --a mini e-cig. Starter kits about $60, cart refills not expensive but they do not last long. So I refill my Blu Cig with cheap e-liquid Cloud 9. One bottle of Cloud 9 is about $20 plus shipping but last me a month. I smoked 3 packs a day but vaping only one bottle of Cloud 9 per month saving me lots of $$$$jack$$$$. You refill the cart with one or two drops. More than two drops will ruin the battery. Also once refilled with e-liquid either vap right away or store the e-cig upside down so it will not ruin the battery. I worked my way down to zero milligrams of nic. Forget real cigs and get the safer cleaner e-cigs. Ah --75% of my family came from Benton and Carroll counties so no I am not a foreigner as I am probably kin to nearly everybody there.

I think the e-cigarettes are either going to be banned or regulated or warnings put on them, by the FDA, because they're supposedly not safe. The question is, in my mind, are they more dangerous than the real thing, if we really know how dangerous the real thing is, minus air pollution, pesticides, additives, etc. That's never been made clear. How much is the cigrettes, themselves, & how much is due to other factors & cigarettes are taking all the blame?

Having been a smoker for about 36 years I am not prejudice against it. I still feel like an adult can smoke if they please to so long as they do it at home, in their own car and then keep a few other smoker’s etiquettes as in smoking in designated smoke areas etc. Having said that --real tobacco cigarettes are killers no doubt about it. Yet if it were not for the much safer e-cigs I would still be a smoker of the real McCoy. Real tobacco cigarettes, depending on which company produced it, has anywhere from 3,000-5,500 dangerous chemicals in them. Compare that to the usual e-cigs ingredients: 98% water, 1% alcohol, propylene glycol (in food products and yes --even in your car), acetyl pyrazine (flavors from rye bread), and ethereal oils. The e-cigs can even include nicotine (found in some food products) in various milligrams but I worked my way down to 0 milligrams. Anyway count the ingredients in e-cigs and compare to real tobacco cigarettes --do the math. Then the adult smoker has to decide for themselves if they want to smoke or vap or neither one. My particular case is mine alone and might not be typical but a few months after not smoking my health is better no doubt, cigarette stench is gone from my hair, my home and my car. So e-cigs are right for me but I will not at all want anyone to think their case will be good like mine. So everybody has to decide for themselves what is right for them. As for FDA they cannot at this time regulate e-cigs because they are not a drug or tobacco of any sort. So some new laws will have to pass before the FDA can stick their nose in it.

The Link in Post # 13 was to an Article about the FDA issuing new restrictions on E-cigarettes, because they are not safe. I just checked it & apparently, it's been taken down because of the length of time that has passed since I posted it.
If you're interested in it, you might could "Google" it & find it. I'm not sure.

One of the BIG reasons for high taxes and our goverment being in debt is they have thier nose in everything.The E cigs are just something else to drive up the high cost of goverment. When they become more popular the goverment is sure to figure out a way to Tax them and make up for some of the sin tax money they are losing because so many people have quit smokeing. A simple warning "USE AT YOUR OWN RISK " is all that should be needed.

No, you are not crazy but rather you are of the norm. Smokers often have a fear of someday not having a cigarette so your feelings are of the norm. I am not advocating that e-cigs are 100% safe because there has been very little scientific research done on them. But personally I think e-cigs are a great deal safer. Also I have been told some medical doctors advise their smoker patients to go on e-cigs yet other doctors say no and even others will not give their opinion. With not much research done on e-cigs doctors are widely opinionated. Yet plenty of research has been done on real cigarettes and it is perfectly clear they are killers so all doctors agree. Now my case is mine alone and others might not have the same results. But with the much safer e-cigs that urgent desire to rush out to the minute mart for a pack of real cigarettes is gone. I no longer fear being out of cigarettes nor feel I better get to the store. For me, the reason why the urges are gone is because the e-cigs are so realistic. With e-cigs you go thru the same rituals and behaviors as with the real cigarette plus they taste real. You may have to experiment with e-cig companies as I did to find the right one for you. Some companies say their e-cigs taste like Marlboro, others are Camel like, etc…. Blu Cigs works out perfectly for me and they are refillable with economical e-liquids. Anyway if you decide on e-cigs then happy vaping to you. You will clean up your act if you switch over --no stinking smells, no nasty ashes, no cigarette burns in your clothes, furniture and carpets…. Heck, you can vap in bed at night and if you fall asleep vaping you can’t burn the house down either.
