    Anyone have any experience with these? I've heard little, but am interested. Seems like a great way to break the disgusting habit, and still enjoy the deal without the health risks. What say you?

    As far as I understand it, its like a micro-vape.

    I'll stick to my real cancer sticks, thank you very much.
     
  7. Hi.

    They seem to be illegal to be bought or sold here, but I'm still amazed by them.

    LEDs and all, amazing ;). Great for preventing the passive smoking I'd guess.

    And great for discretely smoking any alcohol soluble products...


    Chemists please: propylene glycol? Doesn't that fall into the toxic/lethal alcohols category?

    Regards
    Sam
     
  8. Sign me up! I love smoking, but I don't do it often because it's so damn unhealthy.

    So is this totally benign? Because if it is, I'd be down for sure.

    I was reading the Guardian this week and there was an interview with the actress June Brown :

    June-Brown-as-Dot-Cotton--001.

    ...and there was mention of her special "electric cigarettes" used in places where smoking is banned :

    "The PR returns with the electronic cigarettes, as Brown is lighting up her second real one. "Can't you smoke your electric ones?"

    "Oh, darling, you're not here, go outside, don't take any notice."

    "If upstairs come down they'll shoot me."

    "You'll not be shot, they'll shoot me. Just tell them it's me." Puffing away, she murmurs, "I tell everybody to say that, just blame me."

    To each their own, I just thought this looked like a way I could break my habit, and at least do away with the many negative aspects of smoking. The stink, lung damage, and risks.......
     
  12. On a similar note: if someone invented a non-alcoholic beer that didn't taste like crap, I would never drink water again.

    Maybe it's a "generational" thing - when I was in my teens I didn't care what beer tasted like as long as I got drunk! In middle age I can actually taste the difference in nice German beers! ;)
     
  18. I look at beer the way many people look at wine. While I'm not opposed to getting drunk on occasion, there is no finer drink than a pint of ale, porter, stout, and so forth. After having drank the good stuff for so long, 95% of noth american beers are just flavourless carbonated water to me. Though our microbreweries are slowly changing that, thankfully.
     
  19. I can see how those E-cgis could be used for different purposes.
