Back when I got the DSE901 & Janty Dura-C I didn’t really see myself going back to cigarettes, however I ran out of liquid, my atmoizers died, batteries, etc and guess what? I ended up smoking again for another year almost. Now I’m back on ecigs, and so far so good. It’s been about 5 days, 1st day I had 2 cigarettes, 2nd 1 cigarette, 3rd half of a cigarette 4th none, 5th none. This time I went more “all in” because I bought 2 devices 5 back up atomizers and a lot of e-liquid from various places.
What 2 devices did I order? Well from the old days, I remember really liking the Janty Dura-C which recently I found out that’s a 510 atomizer. There’s a cheap version out there called the Joye 510 now, and it works just like the Dura-C I had way back when. However, that’s not what I bought.
I bought a Protigy V2 and a Janty eGo. I’m thinking about doing seperate reviews for both these models, really all I can say is I really enjoy the V2 with a 510 atomizer. It’s been what I mainly use, much stronger vapor and taste compared to the eGo (which is still a great device, compared to the old DSE901 pen style I first got.) Oh yea and I also decided to get a T-Tip from SuperT Manufacturing. I hated always taking off the tip to drip, since that’s all I do. This thing works great, and seems much better than the plastic crap. I actually ended up with juice in my mouth more often with the plastic stuff than this T-Tip, it’s awesome.
My overall goal with e-cigarettes is at the very least completely switch, and at the most stay on them for a few months and slowly down my nicotine intake, and the *final* goal would be to completely quit nicotine. That may or may not happen, because I’ve tried quitting before, and I can’t make it more than a day, I end up feeling like total crap. I guess if I were to not do ANYTHING for a couple months then it might be possible, but as it stands, I wouldn’t be able to be productive in my life for at least a few months, maybe more after quitting cold turkey.
As far as whether or not E-Cigarettes are safe, in my opinion putting a couple chemicals in my mouth and lungs is far safer than putting thousands. Also, as far as I know there’s very little cancer causing chemicals in e-cigarettes. The ones that are there are from the nicotine which was extracted from tobacco, but in VERY small amounts, about the same amount of cancer causing chemicals you’d find in nicotine gum or the patches. Tons less than real cigarette. So from that, I’m not too worried about it. In fact it seems blatantly obvious to me that they’re most likely much much healthier for you than cigarettes. Which is the point for me switching of course, I just figured I’d give an explanation for those who have been brainwashed by the FDA, pharma, and tobacco companies. They all of course have reasons for hating electronic cigarettes, but it all comes down to money.
Anyway, that’s my plan, and oh yea cost is going to go up very slightly for me.. I used the roll your own tobacco and it was very cheap. However, I know that’s about to change since they’re going to raise taxes higher on everything soon, so cost is actually going to be much lower in a little bit.
Lesson here is never start smoking, it’s a real pain
