    Raven Brrrrr!

    Yeah you have to get used to the nicotine delivery. Apparently most of it gets absorbed in the mount and throat rather than by the lungs (So I read anyway)

    I prefer smoking but it just seems like a waste of money really. I smoke roll ups and even then its £20-£25 a week that I could be spanking up the wall on something else, like more booze. Juice is less than £5 a bottle and one lasts me most of a week (With cigs at the weekend)

    @Bodhi - I'm not being superior - I'm with @Raven totally on his point. It's a waste of money - you don't get owt out of it other than temporary nicotine withdrawal alleviation. And as he said - he could spunk £25 / week on booze instead and at least it's more sociable :)

    As per my first post on it. It boggles the mind. Well, not *really* because I used to smoke weed mixed with tobacco/nicotine and I know how hard it was to knock that on the head after just a couple of years. - and it wasn't the weed.

    Drugs should come with a good side. I wonder if tobacco's well-understood ubiquity is partially responsible for part of the general public's distaste for other (safer and better) drugs. They see the effects that, say, extacy has on people and equate the modification of behaviour with physical harm in some stupid but entirely ape-like way, with a subliminal understanding that tobacco does fuck all (apart from grumpyness) yet is really bad for you...

    Meh?

    Nothing to do with feeling superior, its just you don't get anything from it, what a waste of time!

    Not really, as most other drugs were criminalised long before the dangers of smoking became apparent.

    Not sure if I'd say there were no benefits to smoking either, it is a stimulant and are great for dealing with jet lag, plus that early morning headrush is awesome. I've met just about everyone I know including the OH whilst outside having a smoke, and if you want to get the inside track on where the company is going, then the smoking area tends to be the place to go.

    Sure it's cost some money (albeit less now I travel a lot) but overall I have absolutely no regrets about starting. I could quit but enjoy the taste of a good cigarette far too much for that.

    Nah, in the 60's and 70's people were a lot less puritanical about drug use.

    Only in London and California dude, the rest of the world? They were pretty much as bad as today.

    Nah. There's nothing special about the places. Drugs have been commonly used for as long as we've been human. Meh.

    Would recommend the Kanger Subtank Mini with something like the Eleaf 50w or other variable voltage box.

    I smoked one for 18 months. I saved a fortune but then i became more addicted because of the accessibility of it lol. I've completely quit nicotine together now and just became an all round machine in general

    People told me its really difficult to come off nicotine but in my opinion it wasn't as bad as they made out. Try it lads

    Currently on a Vengeance Tank (with an Innokin T18 when more portability is required) but frankly I want more. Thinking of getting a SMOK TVF4. It looks a beast. Anyone got one?

    You do know there's poison-free (isch) cigarettes to smoke instead of having to look like a complete dick with one of these. Or, you could just quit?

    Married with two kids. I care little about how much of a dick I look. In fact, having a beer-belly and sucking away on weird contraptions probably keeps all the fanny away that lesser men would get tempted by.

    old.Osy No longer scrounging, still a bastard.

    Nothing wrong with being tempted, and if you have to use the beer belly and other less manly contraptions to keep the fanny away, that translates to you not being able to hold off were it not for such tricks.

    I welcome the fanny, it's a pleasant exercise into futility, whilst caressing my ego. You know, ego?

    I occasionally smoke when pissed, it's mostly just something to do, the feeling in your lungs and the lack of oxygen rush, not addicted in anyway, hate the frickin things when sober.
    I'm pretty sure e-cigs are 90% process habit fixes, going outside, putting it in your mouth ..
