University Of East London - Electronic Cigarettes: What We Know So Far

This is a very informative presentation on ecigs. This is a good presentation for those smokers who are thinking about transitioning and for anyone else who is simply interested in ecigs. My one year anniversary of being smoke-free is fast approaching. I could not have done it without ecigs. I've tried nearly everything to quit and nothing worked for me. Ecigs will save lives.

Unfortunately I was told some bad news. About a month after I transitioned I got an old high school friend to transition as well. Everything went great. She loved it. Then I didn't talk to her for about 7 or 8 months. We finally talked again and it turns out she went back to smoking. This really concerns me because she just had her first child. She was talking about exposing the child to the unknown dangers of vaping and I was flabbergasted. There are no unknown dangers. All this talk about the dangers of vaping is fear propaganda or "fear porn." If she would have stayed with it she would have been fast approaching her one year anniversary of being smoke free as well. I think the major problem with her is that she wouldn't invest any money on the right model of ecig. She was using a rinky dink ecig and I tried several time to get her to invest in a better model but she wouldn't listen. I guess she doesn't realize she's spending far more money on cigarettes. I'm quite bummed. I hope she doesn't wait to quit smoking when she develops her first smoking-related illness or heart problem. Not everyone who waits until then to quit gets a second chance at life.

I recently purchased another ecig model. It's an iTaste MVP2. I already have the first model and loved it so much that I bought the second model. The batteries on both last me about three days of heavy vaping or five days of light vaping, if I vape like I used to smoke.

I bought my iTaste MVP2 at the Vapor Hut, my local vape shop for $70. It comes with a free 20ml bottle of ejuice.


  1. Congratulations!

    I'm a former smoker so I know what an accomplishment it is to make the decision to quit. Not to mention actually doing it and staying smoke free. Good job and I wish you continued success!

    1. Thank you. I'm weaning myself to lower and lower nicotine strengths. Eventually I will stop vaping too.
