When I was trying to quit smoking a lot of people said that it was a good alternative, so I tried it for a while (think about ~6 months), but it just made me want cigarettes more because nothing compares to an actual cigarette. I ended up quitting cold turkey a year after that. Since I actually enjoyed the taste of cigarettes and still crave them (even to this day) I got another with some tobacco flavors and some others that I thought I might like (grape, green apple, stuff like that) and though I liked the tobacco ones, the fruit ones tasted bad to me, it still didn't compare to a cigarette so I just stopped using it. I think that they help a lot of people, almost everyone I know used them to quit, but now they're reliant on them where I'm not reliant on anything anymore (but I do still crave cigarettes like crazy). Though, I'm sure it's still less expensive than cigarettes in general, so there is that.

tl;dr it didn't work for me but I can see why it does for others.

Vaping is a better alternative to smoking for sure. But, when I switched to Vaping I found myself getting hooked and spending just as much money as I did on cigarettes buying different flavors and batteries. But, after a few months of Vaping I find myself not touching the thing at all. Unless I'm drunk...then just vape a lot lol

I vape, I used to smoke and I find it infinitely better.

I use a Kbox mod with a fasttech atty ontop, here is a pic

I have a mix of juices however just started making my own as you can make the flavors infinitely more complex, I go for either cereal or fruity flavors but I also have some tobacco / woody flavors.

The biggest issues I see with new vapers is they go out and buy a "cigalike" or ego kit, these suck.. I mean they really suck I would go as far as to say that some of the ones made by tobacco companies are made poorly to drive people back to smokes, not only does the battery life suck but the flavors feel very muted, I was lucky enough to have a guy offer me a hit on his provari + Kayfun mod, the flavor and vape was insane compared to my shitty Ego vape.

Rebuildable tanks like the one above give you a good throat / lung feeling akin to smoking but also a much better flavor compared to cigalikes.

Nice!

Yeah, the little vape I'd had was an Ego kit I bought for ~$30. It was okay, but after getting a few hits of my friend's Rajin and later his Chaos Box, I fucking hated my Ego. Unfortunately I've yet to save up enough money to get a "real" vape. I'm looking at this to start. My friend had one of these as well and digged it, plus I really dig the "grenade" sort of look it has. I'd much rather go for a Raijin or Chaos Box, as those are both really fucking great, but they're pretty pricey. Raijin can pull off some fantastic cloud too.

I don't know if I ever really clearly indicated, but I'm no vape aficionado, I like them though. I only really know what little my friend taught me about them.

I'll hit a vape if a friend offers. I like the more citrusy flavors. E-juice definitely seems to be in the early stages though, I'm hoping some Edison will come along and create flavors that are more, for lack of a better word, real.

I've seen lots of people try to use them to quit, and for some people it helps. For others, there's something about a cigarette...

Yeah, my buddy was the one who got me into vaping, we'd pass his Raijin back and forth until I got a small $30 vape pen for myself. I've never been super serious into it, but I love the sensation of inhaling the flavor and puffing out clouds. The clouds smell pretty good too.

Yeah! The citrus flavors are fantastic. My buddy had Orange Gummy Bear that was fantastic.

Haha it seems like a fun hobby for those that are into it. I need to learn how to pick up those damn smoke tricks! Can't even blow smoke rings... :(

So a lot of flavors are actually pretty complex, the thing is if somebody isnt buying good juice they probably wont even know what real e-juices taste like.

Boss reserve by cuttwood

A golden honey graham cereal with roasted nut clusters. Drenched in creamy milk and layered with sliced bananas.

Or

Castle long

a combination of the dark, refined spirit of Kentucky Bourbon, accented with toasted coconut, roasted almond, Madagascar vanilla bean, and laced with a caramelized brown sugar.

Haha are you accusing a certain someone of being this "somebody"? Forgive me, I look forward to being able to try flavors like you describe when I get the chance. I wonder, how exactly does someone chemically nail the taste of Madagascar vanilla bean? I guess that's the talent that shines through in these real e-juices.

I still smoke, and I vape occasionally. And while I know many people have found that vaping is helpful as a smoking cessation aid. I, personally do not. I smoke just as much as I did before I discovered vaping. Probably more, in fact. But I do enjoy vaping for multiple reasons. I like the flavors(my favorite was peach rings by Endless Clouds before they were called Endless Clouds and before they changed their formula.) I also love building coils for my mods and whatnot, it's really entertaining for me to build new, different coils and fiddle around with ohms and amps and watts and shit. Basically it's a pastime more than a habit. They're obviously more healthy and far less smelly. But I just appreciate the feeling that cigarettes provide. It's a far more effective stress reliever and since I work at a call center, I can use all the stress relief that I can get.
