Not sure how reputable this site is but for me the concern is still the lack of scientific testing.

I've never smoked before in my life (other than the occasional drag, or odd cigar). But now I vape, using an Arizer Solo, but not tobacco.

I think e-cigarettes and vapourisers are a great idea. Maybe they don't remove the habit/addiction of tobacco, but they remove the tar and many other chemicals which cause cancer and many other health issues related to smoking and combustion of whatever plant material is your taste. It costs less also, so saves the smoker a few quid a week, is friendlier for non-smokers, doesn't smell so bad....so whats the problem?

Ideal world, smokers stop smoking entirely (and don't even vape), but we don't live in an ideal world, and its ok to have some mild addictions in this world. I would imagine that drinking is unhealthier and causes more anti-social behaviour than vaping (any substance) and by some distance.

Another advantage, to add to my above post about vaping and e-cigarettes is littering....

Smokers are, in general, the biggest arseholes and contributors to littering, and pointlessly so. Too many of them just fling their fags onto the ground. They don't do that with e-cigs and vapourisers.

Another good reason for electronic cigarettes.

Rant over. :D

Ha yes you are right :D .

But in defence of my past sins, what are we supposed to do? For starters indoor smoking in public is banned (I like this btw). And apart from in town centres (and not a lot in these) there isn't a huge abundance of ashtrays in general public places to make use of - although I always did use one if possible. It's not like you can carry a stinking nub around in your pocket, so in fairness there's not much choice for the smoker. And, clutching at the final straw, they are bio degradable too :wink: .

I don't believe the butts are biodegradable.

People should carry small steel containers to dispose cigarettes. As well as more places should of course have more ashtrays.

They are biodegradable. They don't last long when wet.

I was under the impression that ciggies weren't biodegradable, but maybe the ones you buy in shops rather than roll ups.

either way....its still littering. Come on smokers please don't drop them on the floor :-(

I vape now, just bought a shed load of e liquid in a factory warehouse shop, reputable brand (kik) and trying some new fruity flavours, tried a fruit mix one now and it is lovely! Got caramel, bubble gum, cherry, fruit mix and strawberry. All 5 10ml bottle cost me £10 and should last me over a month! Can't complain at the value!

Just been to Emporium Vapor in Edinburgh and picked up 100 mls of 'rollies' for £40.

This is a rather exquisite blend of 80% vg and 20% pg at 30mg strength, guaranteeing a massive smooth cloud and big hit.

As a bonus the guy threw in a free 10ml bottle of strawberry and, since he was blending it there and then, I was able to ask for more flavour than usual.

Top service.

30mg strength? That is going to blow the roof off! I can barely handle 18mg without getting a head rush that could throw me into a coma.

Lol when the guy asked what strength I wanted, I jokingly asked how high he could go. He told me that he custom blends 48mg for one regular who's went cold turkey from a 60 fags a day habit!

I decided to try 30mg to see. I have about 5 mls of regular 24mg to finish first.

Which ecigs did you try? The disposable ones are a waste of money.

I have the new Kanger Subtank on order after trying my brother's one.

Huge cloud-chaser-pleasing vape and loads of flavour.

Big nic hit too. I could never go back to censored-flavour analogs now :)
