Has anyone else switched from smoking to vaping; either with e-cigarettes or vaporizers?

I messed around with e-cigs for a couple of months, but they really didn't quench my desire to smoke. But once I discovered vaporizers, I haven't smoked since. Just wondering if anyone else is now vaping instead of smoking.

I don't smoke, my mom is a smoker and I would love it if she quit.

What are the costs, benefits, etc?

Tell him to try a personal vaporizer. I too found e-cigs not enough to stop my cravings to smoke. But a vaporizer has worked wonders. Plus, even though I'm still feeding my nicotine addiction, I'm no longer inhaling all of the really dangerous chemicals and tar that is in cigarette smoke. Since I've been vaping for a few months, my lungs have cleared up, my health has improved, I no longer have a smokers cough, my sense of smell and taste are back, and I have much more energy, and myself, my clothes, and my vehicle no long reek of cigarette smoke.

Plus, vapor tastes and smells a heck of a lot better than cigarette smoke. After a few weeks of vaping, I really couldn't understand what it was about burning tobacco and paper that I thought tasted so good.

Much cheaper than cigarettes, and so far, no known health risks beyond inhaling vaporized flavoring and liquid nicotine (and the carcinogenic properties of liquid nicotine is still debated).

The downsides are a slightly different nicotine "buzz" than smoking produces and the limited availability of personalized vaporizers. E-cigarettes are much more readily available, but they may not fit all smokers needs.

Do an internet search for your closest Vapor shop. They can teach you what you need to know about personalized vaporizers (which I recommend far more than e-cigs).

It will cost around $20 for a rechargeable battery, another $7 for the attached vaporizer, and then $7 per bottle of liquid nicotine, that lasts me about three days, and I vape pretty heavy.

I can't remember what mine was, honestly. It looked like a cigarette, but the cartridges gave you nicotine and a LOT of vapor (The vapor helped immensely by giving me the "look" of the smoke) and the "throat hit" was almost identical to actual cigarettes. It was a huge help.

I tried the cheap E-Cigs and they did nothing. I finally went all in and invested some money and the difference was huge.

For me it was. Not that less expensive as cigarettes (the cartridges were expensive and I went through 1 1/2 to 2 per day), and the batteries burned out every few weeks.

But I sure am pleased with Personal Vaporizers (VP). MUCH more vapor (hence nicotine) than an e-cig, the batteries last much longer, the refillable liquids are cheaper than buying pre-filled disposable cartridges, and all of the equipment is better quality than what e-cigs are made of.
