I wish there was a way to like this.

I'm not sure how I do it either. I can't stand the thought of a cigarette most of the time. I guess it may have something to do with my lifestyle. I work long hours on my feet without any breaks in a kitchen where there is no smoking. I play nights in bars and halls with no smoking. I usually head out for a walk after dinner. When I finally do stop I think of having one. Even then I may put it out half way. On occasion, if I am having a few drinks, I have been know to have 4 or 5. Then I feel so gross the next day I'll go weeks without one.

South Beach Smoke has a good online e-cig shop, and if any of your equipment fails, they replace it for free, no questions asked. And they do have nicotine!
I was just thinking he had a run-in with Tommy Chong!

And I just recently watched "Up In Smoke" again! I can just imagine the conversation!

Loved the post RD.....too funny! I'm glad you got started though.
There are many, many online sources for ecigs...just look around. One I like a lot is E-Cigarette | Electronic Cigarette | Volcano E-Cig


Dawg, I see that South Beach only has pre-filled cartridges. It's much more economical to have the ability to fill your own.

Apparently, you CAN refill SB, Kayelle, a friend in Mexico gets the juice and does it. I happen to have a lifetime supply of cartridges from when they were sending them to me monthly, before I figured it out and was able to stop the cartridge shipments without getting the lifetime equipment replacement guarantee stopped.

Well, day 1 with the ecig went pretty good. Not much different than a tobacco one. Mrs D did good with hers too. I just wonder how it's going to be when we head to an all inclusive in Puerto Plata in a couple of weeks.

Dawg - I emailed South Beach and they won't ship cartridges to Canada that contain nicotine. Apparently Canada has an import ban on such things. They would gladly sell me their new Magma kit though with blank cartridges that I could fill myself. I may do that as the one I bought here is quite complicated.

Day two tomorrow.......one day at a time as they say.

Well, week one comes to an end and week two starts. The ecigs are the answer for us. Both Mrs D and myself have had maybe 5 regular cigs this week. We have tried all kinds of Health Canada sanctioned quitting methods. Champex, the patch, the gum, and laser treatment. Nothing worked. I think this is the one....I hope. Week two begins tomorrow.
I hope all you other quitters are just as successful.
