    I have been a casual smoker for several years now and have recently heard about electronic cigarettes. I started smoking cigars years back and still enjoy them and these seem to focus more on the flavor and experience of it all so I decided to check them out and do a little research. From what I've found these seem to be the the best brands out there.

    Blu Cigs & Green Smoke

    Me being a big tech guy I'm very interested in this. Anyone ever heard of electronic cigarettes and tried/own them, thoughts?

    Heard of them and hope everyone tries them, no offense to individuals, but smokers are the rudest people on the planet.

    I've tried one and its friggin' awesome. Its like smoking but with steam sorta. They're just wicked expensive. I think $100 for the cigarette, 35 for the motor and 10 for flavoring packets. Expensive, but if you smoke a pack a day, it pays for itself within a month.

    Actually most smokers, myself included, are anything but rude. We are treated like second class citizens and for the most part we take it in stride. We don't care that we can't smoke inside, we just ask that we have someplace covered with A/C or heat so that we can smoke in comfort. It's usually the non-smokers that are rude (this does not include ALL non-smokers mind you). In fact the other day I was smoking outside Books-A-Million when someone walked up to me and started pretend hacking and looked at me like I was a damn Nazi then proceeded to lecture me on how I would fouling "his" air. I was halfway around the building, not near the entrance minding my own business. Then look at all those so called Truth ads on TV that portray smokers as monsters. I don't see why care what someone's doing as long as it's not affecting others.

    Actually, this device does not have the bazzilion chemicals that traditional smokes has. The liquid cartridge contains water, glycol propylene (a food additive) to simulate 'smoke' and nicotine. There are several nicotine levels available. So in theory, a smoker can switch to the E-cig and gradually decrease his nicotine intake to zero.

    I've quit smoking 8 years ago and I recently tried a nicotineless e-cig from a friend of mine who bought one on puresmoker.com and I must say that the "throat hit" you get is eerily close to the real deal.

    Better yet, the 'smoke' that you exhale is actually water vapor. In other words, no smell, no second-hand smoke, nothing.

    IMO, this is the future of smoking. Now all wee need is the gov't to remove their stick up their butts and legalize this device. Because of the nicotine contained in the device, the gov't considers this to be a pharmaceutical device, and as we all know, the FDA must perform extensive testing on this device before it gets approved.

    Between the FDA and the huge control tobacco companies have, I don't think we'll be seeing the e-cig go mainstream anytime soon. It's a shame, because this is truly a remarkable device.

    I will have to disagree. Not all smokers are rude but a lot are. People smoke near building entrances, near other crowds of people. Throw cig butts on the ground, spit everywhere. Those are the ones I don't like. The ones who smoke in a designated area are fine. I don't care about that.

    We have a site for it. Kind of a silent sister site to TFW. It's Vapeatron.com.

    I've been using ecigs for over 7 months now. Used to smoke a lot. Haven't smoked since I have been vapin'.

    I quit about 6 months ago and it's been the best six months of my life. TBH if I could smoke and it not give me cancer or have any ill side effects, then I would definitely smoke. Those are big if's though and the smell is horrible. It took a 100.00 car shampooing and 3 months for the smell to even start to leave my car.
