    Mrs t has just started using an e-cig

    Don't want to start a debate re tobacco

    And smoking .

    But as a previous smoker haven't for 23 yrs

    She puts the e cig down on the coffee table

    Goes about her business comes back

    The number of times I've been tempted to

    Pick it up to see what it's like

    Especially when I charged it and set it up

    Apparently you have to have a couple of
    Draws before it works initially
    Without thinking i nearly had a puff
    As tempers frayed ( no fags left )

    Just thought I'd share it with you

    You have managed to resist Mrs Ts cigarettes for all these years so why even think of how these gadgets would make you feel. Like you I am a non smoker, I am not tempted why are you. Forget it,:thumb: it is Mrs Ts addiction not yours. Tell her to do it in the garden as leaving it around the house is having an adverse affecting your sanity.:winky:

    Thing is I've avoided all temptations of picking up
    Cigarets for 23 years .

    It was the unguarded moment of getting the thing assembled
    Charged for someone who said I'll try them know

    The kit that was purchased and sat for 3 years but failed
    Fluid seeped and or evaporated

    Eventually bought an e lights kit
    So she didn't buy cigarets again
    She has brilliant smokers cough
    And I have been trying for 23 years
    For her to become baccy free

    Thought we had nearly turned the corner
    And there I was nearly succomed by accident

    Just a warning it's easy to lapse with them about:thumb:

    e-cigs don't have the many bits of crap that is put into fags to keep you wanting them......and destroy lungs:thumb:

    Getting onto them from fags is a good start, getting onto them from not smoking is a bad start.

    E-cigs contain the very thing which addicts you to real cigarettes.....nicotine.

    'Normal strength e-cigs contain exactly the same amount as tobacoo cigarettes.

    in the quantity used in cigs nicotine is a harmless but extremely addictive drug.
    its the other ingredients in tobacoo smoke which do harm.

    I smoke an e-cig without nicotine (plenty of zero nicotine fluids on offer) or with the lowest dose.....even smelling the smoke from a fag now makes me feel sick.......:thumb:

    Caffiene is also addictive, and affects the nervous system I believe, but I never heard of anyone dying of coffee.

    Tofo, whilst I applaud you for giving up al that time ago, and sticking to it, and also Mrs T for finally giving up normal cigs, can I ask WHEN and WHERE did she smoke them? The reason I ask is that it makes me wonder if you have been a 'passive' smoker for 23 years so indirectly getting your 'fix' and that's why the e-cig is proving to be so tempting to you as 'harmless' addiction? Just curiosity on my part, nothing more, no condemnation or anything else, so please don't take it the wrong way! :Smile:

    As for e-cigs generally, the danger of it becoming 'popular' for those who do NOT smoke has always been a concern since they came out, as they seem to be quite 'fasionable' now especially with all the different 'flavours' etc that are available which to me makes them more like 'sweets' than an aid to giving up altogether. IMV if they stop people from smoking normal cigs, then obviously that is a good thing, but only if it means they stop altogether at some point. :thumb:
