E-Cigarettes (Personal Vapors): A Way to quit smoking.

E-Cigarettes (Personal Vapors): A Way to quit smoking.


After more than 30 years, I stopped smoking. Only last november of 2010 when I decided to use e-cigarrettes or what we cal as Personal Vapors. I was still smoking in between vaping but somehow the real cigarettes/analogs, does not seem to taste so well as I use my vaporizer. I completely stopped smoking after a month and started using my personal vapor full time.

Comparison between the real cigarrettes and E (electronic) Cigarettes (Personal Vaporizer):

  Analogs, you burn the tobacco and paper which creates tar which comprises 4,000 bad chemicals that are detrimental to our health, and 4 chemicals are found to be cancerous which sticks to the lungs and to our tongue. Whereas, with e-cig, the e-flid or juice that is being put on an atomizer, creates vapor instead of smoke. the juice contains basically water, food variants for taste, nicotine (o mg, 6mg, 11, mg,16mg, 18mg, 24mg or 36mg) and Propylene Glycol ( 1940's studies by Dr. Robertson: use to prevent flu and influenza but wasn't able to do so then because of the lack technology to spray the mist in theaters and other public places).

So, basically personal vaporizers emits vapor instead of smoke. Though, the only thing that is left to change is the nicotine in the juice.

Upon using the personal Vaporizer, our taste and smell becomes better, you do not feel you are always tired, you can breath better.

Side Effects of using a Personal Vaporizer:

1. Dry throat , because of puffing vapor. You tend to drink more liquid.
2. I found myself always wanting to eat, maybe because of better digestion or the oxygen intake.
3. I tend to emit more gas from behind.
4. I pee more often, maybe because of the increase liquid intake.
5. a bit spaced out (nausea) because of the oxygen intake and the effects of nicotine.
6. I easily don't get drunk fast anymore.

There are is a stall in MOA near the Science Museum that sells e-cigs kaso medyo pricey. May nakita din ako sa Tutuban at 168mall, the brand is Denkat which is a good brand. Hassle lang kung malakas ka mag yosi kasi each full charge of the e-cigs is equivalent to more or less 6 sticks.

Can anyone give suggestions?

Which brand of e-cigarette is good, in terms of quality and battery life?

And which flavor resembles Marlboro Lights the closest?

I want to buy one.  ;D

Get the drip type if you want something close to MLights  (mine is melon flavored. May cheese flavor pa ko nakita haha). The cartridge type is cheaper but its parang disposable.

Got mine it's lemon flavor. Nakakatulong siya na makalimutan ang real yosi. Medyo boring nga lang pero masasanay na rin ako.

Heto lang ang disadvantage:
Anytime pwede kang ma-lowbat at kailangan i-charge muna bago makapagyosi ulit. Di tulad sa tunay na yosi labas ka lang makakabili ka na ulit. ;D

Thanks so much guys! With the info i got here and online. I think that the drip type with manual battery would best fit my partner.

Though i read that the atomizer component should also be changed once ina while... How often should i do that?

Thanks again in advance. =P

Guys, in all honesty, the reasons for smoking is the one that you need to get resolved.  Replacing that with vaping may only provide temporary reprieve, and does not usually end up in successful quitting from smoking the real thing.

While there could be one or a few who may claim to have been helped with the use of e-cigarettes, there is no long-term study (verified and accepted by the medical community after peer review) that says that it is effective, nor safe.

Those who claim its safety are those who manufacture it.  No health agency has ever claimed to support it.  Which is why it is better to err on the side of safety, as there are other ways to "kick the habit" or "kick the addiction" that has been proven through years of experience and study.

Though I am not saying e-cigs won't help, I'm saying it has not received sufficient validation by authorities in the field of medicine and health.

Besides, the presence of nicotine should be enough to tell you that this requires regulation and prescription by a competent medical professional.  Nicotine is highly addictive, causes vaso-constriction, and is an upper and downer at the same time.  You can go down that same spiral you were trying to avoid in the first place.

Already, the tendency of e-cig users is to use it in indoor public places!  No one can ever say, at this point, that secondhand nicotine vapor is safe and that it should not be a public concern.  The FDA also has not allowed e-cig manufacturers or distributors to openly advertise claims about its safety and efficacy.  The unregulated advertisement that's out there could still, if I may say, be misleading.

Guys, safety first.  Quitting smoking cold turkey is still the best way, and best supported by lifestyle adjustments.

Peace out  :)
