you gotta pull hard as fuck to get a hit on one of those things, i could see it giving someone a headache easily. honestly these got me more ripped than my default cig (marlboro 27s), so it may not be the best avenue for actually breaking your nicotine addiction.
i’d grab a box of nicorette, or the generic alternative. $30 at walgreens & they got me off cigs, feels nice to breathe again. also, smooth ride down, no fiending/cravings along the way, makes it much easier to taper your dose of nicotine day to day.
are they really that popular? that sucks. i use Blu cigs because they look cool. I use the ones with no nicotine so i cant really say much about the flavor or effect, but the sure are good female conversation starters
During my short, short stint as a smoker(few months), out of curiosity i tried two electric cigarette brands. Luci and the Blu cigs and they were lame.
They all tout the benefits of the E-cig and the bad stuff it lacks, but what few don’t realize is a good chunk of the sensation and “high” one gets on a cig is due to those excess toxins and stuff. Its not just the nicotine!
To try and compensate, some makers try to pack more concentrated amounts of nicotine in the e-cig than what would normally be in a real one, but the result still feels LAME.
I guess its like drinking a protein shake to substitute for eating a steak, you still get the protein but its nowhere near as satisfying. I suggest you try your friend’s e-cigs to see if you care for it.
OP, just quit cold turkey. I only smoked for a year and a half but it was still very difficult to stop. I kept trying random shit like having a small ration of cigarettes at work instead of bringing my whole pack but I end up bumming some off my co-workers. I even tried switching from Marlboro Reds to Lights but that didn’t help at all. I tried quitting by toning my smoking down multiple times but it didn’t work. When I realized that for that I had never been as unhealthy as when I started smoking and I did the math for how much money I’d save if I quit I then decided to quit cold turkey. It was tough but at least I can look back and feel like I accomplished something.
