Electronic Cigarettes Can Help You Quit Smoking – by: TimJohnstone

Are you looking for an electronic cigarette in Australia yet? Recent studies suggest that electronic cigarettes can help people quit their nicotine habit. In fact, if you want to quit, e-cigarettes may work even better than nicotine patches, gum and plain willpower. You​​’re 60% more like to succeed if you use them. Smoking is a very difficult habit to beat, but this is definitely one strong step in the right direction.

This is how smokeless cigarettes make quitting that much easier: while they contain nicotine, they don​​’t have any tobacco smoke. What this means for you is that your cravings won​​’t be as severe, and withdrawal will be correspondingly less painful. From a health point of view, tests for toxicity seem to indicate that using e-cigarettes involves lower risks than regular ones. By any standards, then, they are definitely an improvement.
If you are a long time smoker, the chances are that you have thought of quitting more than once. Maybe you​​’ve even tried a couple of times, but fallen off the wagon sooner or later. Five million people every year die from tobacco use and related complications; this toll can be reduced and prevented. smokeless cigarettes have the potential to do just that. The success stories are many. Not everyone who starts smoking electronic cigarettes is going to quit smoking. However, those who start smoking electronic cigarettes for the express purpose of quitting have a high chance of success.

Feedback welcome

Here is rough draft of an excerpt I wrote for the "menu" we intend to provide to our prospective retailers.

I submit it to all of you for honest and candid feedback…

Nicoticket means family. The establishment within which you find yourself is part of that family – a carefully selected partner we have chosen because of their dedication to YOU, the vaper. If you are new to the vaping community, I congratulate you on the well intentioned steps that led you to this moment – and invite you to join us in a community movement unlike anything the vaping industry has seen before. If you are a seasoned veteran coming to us from another vendor, let me be the first to welcome you to a new path – one in which you can stick your chest out a little bit and “tell ‘em what’s in the tank” knowing you have world-class value in the atty. And for you salty-dog regulars – thank you. Thank you for loyalty you have shown – thank you for giving Katy and I the opportunity to prove that “Blood is Thicker than eliquid.” Enjoy the vape. ~ “Clark” Kent Brooks, MS, PLMHP

(sidenote – I am looking for some eccentric verbiage to describe the liquid – contributions welcome!)


  • Gravity (GTY) – Tied for 1st Place, Fruit, Best of <acronym title="e-cigarette Forum”>ECF 2013. An enigmatic blend of Tangerine, Cranberry, Peach, and Pomegranate. Some say it tastes like a Baha Blasted Beverage that descended from the Mountain and landed in Taco Hell. PG/VG Ratio: 65/35

  • Betelgeuse (BG) – Tied for 1st Place, Fruit, Best of <acronym title="e-cigarette Forum”>ECF 2013. An explosion of fruit flavors featuring Raspberry, Mango, Pineapple, and Strawberry. This is our most beloved and time-tested recipe… Betelgeuse is the flavor that “got us off the launchpad” in April of 2013! PG/VG Ratio: 65/35


  • Custard’s Last Stand (CLS) – 1st Place, Bakery, Best of <acronym title="e-cigarette Forum”>ECF 2013. It’s thick; it’s creamy; it’s decadent; it’s vanilla custard. Made with a generous amount of our in-house vanilla extract, derived from from all-natural vanilla beans sourced in Madagascar. PG/VG Ratio: 50/50

  • Crème Brûlée (CB) – 2st Place, Bakery, Best of <acronym title="e-cigarette Forum”>ECF 2013. Features our famous vanilla custard base with a shot of “burnt caramel.” Mix 50% CLS with 50% CB to yield "Naki’s Blend." PG/VG Ratio: 50/50

  • Grandma’s Cinnamon Danish (GCD) – 3rd Place, Bakery, Best of <acronym title="e-cigarette Forum”>ECF 2013. Features a delectable medley of bakery-style cinnamon, buttery Danish pastry, and creamy confectionery style icing. Add a dash (10%) of GCD to CLS, CB, or Frenilla for a sinful bakery treat. PG/VG Ratio: 50/50

  • Frenilla – Captures the rich, decadent, complex flavors of traditional French Vanilla without the custard notes. Made with generous amounts of our in-house vanilla extract. Mixes well with virtually everything. PG/VG Ratio: 50/50

  • Strawnilla – Pairs Frenilla with a ripe "natural" strawberry – reminiscent of strawberry flavored milk. PG/VG Ratio: 50/50

  • Got Cookie? – You’re 12 again and your parents let you stay home alone while they run errands. First order of business: raid the cookie jar, pour an tall glass of milk, and twist the chocolatey wafers until you get the filling on the right side (or was it the left?) Fast forward: you’re a little bit older and a little bit rounder, but all is not lost – embrace your inner child without having to work it off at the gym later. BYOM (Bring your own milk)! Add little Frenilla to make it "double stuffed." Mix 30% Strawnilla with 70% "Got Cookie?" to yield chocolate covered strawberries. PG/VG Ratio: 50/50


  • The Virus – 1st Place, Tobacco, Best of <acronym title="e-cigarette Forum”>ECF 2013. Winner – Best Overall eliquid, Best of <acronym title="e-cigarette Forum”>ECF 2013. Notes of chocolate, coffee, peanuts, honey, caramel, vanilla, and maple syrup serve to accent an even bodied naturally-extracted tobacco flavor. “Changes flavor profiles more frequently than a teenage drama queen changes clothes." #INFECTED PG/VG Ratio: 65/35

  • Wakonda – features a bold, authentic, dark roast coffee paired our in-house vanilla extract, a dollop of vanilla custard, and a very faint undertone of naturally-extracted tobacco. “May the Sacred Vapor Never Dissipate"

Vamo Fire

I was perusing FT tonight and found what appears to be a wooden Vamo V6: <a href="http://www.fasttech.com/products/0/10009229/1926105-vamo-fire-3-20w-variable-wattage-apv-mod” target=”_blank” rel=”nofollow”>$36.75 Vamo Fire 3-20W Variable Wattage APV mod – 1*18650 / wood + brass at FastTech – Worldwide Free Shipping

I kind of like the looks of it except for the massive "20W"…it definitely cheapens the look. 🙂 Anyone have any experience with this thing and can compare it to a regular Vamo?

Online retailer with widest selection of e-juices?

I ran across Giant vapes – <a href="http://www.giantvapes.com/” target=”_blank” rel=”nofollow”>Welcome to Giant vapes – looks like they have a wide range of brands and flavors available. And from my search here, folks have indicated their shipping is fast and they have great customer service.

Just wondering — are there other online retailers that you would recommend that have this wide range of vendor’s e-juices available?
