Planning on giving up, told about DIY site, what do i buy?

Hi,

Sorry if i'm in the wrong area, or if this site is in the wrong area. I honestly haven't a clue what i'm looking at, and hoping somebody here can help me..

I've been moaning about giving up for a while now. I smoke heavily when i'm out, but not so much (Very little) when i'm sitting home or working. But again heavy when i'm in my workroom/shed.

Someone told me about this site - http://www.inaweraflavours.com/en/
Specifically this link - http://www.inaweraflavours.com/en/10...otine-pg-based

He said it is good prices, and i could "Make my own..."

My confusion starts there... Make my own what?

What am i supposed to do with these liquids?
He gave me the link from the bottom of a print out, and said to go there. I have, and have not a clue what to buy.
I can't see any e-cigarettes or anything to smoke. Am i supposed to?

- I think he said something about Apple for marlboro lights.. i see Apple flavour, but... so what?

Have you thought about giving up smoking altogether, Champix has worked for a lot of people, big support thread on it here http://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/showt...458413&page=48 , I'm off smokes 12mts next month, can't praise Champix enough. It's worked for a lot of my friends as well.

Don't start making your own juice until you're already vaping a while and understand what you're doing, full-stop.

A kit that you only use occasionally with juice you use occasionally will still be cheaper over time than smoking if you smoke pre-rolled fags.

No idea why anyone would guide a smoker who hasn't yet quit towards DIY juice.

Vaping is giving up smoking altogether as long as they stay vaping.
Champix has caused a lot of people to kill themselves, depression in a lot of others, and has a dismal success rate to boot...
What's with the Giving Up Smoking invasion today?

I can see why we'd invade that forum (makes sense as this is the easiest most likely way to stop smoking, and we don't do it often at all), but people coming in here recommending methods that are LESS likely to help the smoker?

Are these posts that've been moved from the G.U.S. forum? Might explain it I suppose.

Going to read that now. I have been waking with a bit of a heavy chest, as i smoke mostly late at night.

No, i posted this here. As i assumed it had something to do with giving up, and e-smoking..
But i don't have a clue what it is. I was looking through that site for about 20 minutes - half an hour. My head was throbbing thinking i was missing something, so decided to post here to find out..

Thankfully i did, 'coz i'm about to read about Champix and see if it's what i am looking for..

If it is, good for you. You'll be one of a rare few.
What you're looking for with ecigs is a battery, an atomiser to vapourise the juice, and some juice.

This kit has everything you need to start, is much cheaper than Champix (ZERO suicides - imagine that!) and if you vape as little as you smoke your juice costs will be much lower than your smoking costs.

Ahh, it's the giving up smoking forum

I think OP should just cut to the case and stop smoking completely. It works for nearly 50% of people and there's great support here on boards.

That's bollix. Don't mind him, ask the people who don't smoke any more in that thread. The Vaping thread, is about keeping you smoking, champix one is about stopping you smoking altogether.

A-HA!! - That site looks more like what i'm looking for! Thanks.

How long does that kit last? - For a 20ish a day smoker? Should i buy extra cartridges or anything?

Getting a little confused now.
I think i'll look a little further into Champix, as i'd be stupid to ignore that, true or not.. It's a bit scary. I do plan on giving up, but for now i just want to remove some of the heaviness on my chest. If i can do that and still smoke when out, then maybe that's would suit me better..

Google Champix or Chantrix class action.

Chantix/Champix success rate is 44% @ 9-12 weeks, 22% @ 1 year and 10-14% @ 2 years.
Guess what happens @ 2 years? 86-90% of people are smoking again.
Woohoo! Success!

Vaping is stopping smoking completely. If you don't smoke, you have stopped smoking.

I think i'll go for the kit. - For now anyway.

Should i buy any extra cartridges or anything? Or do they last a decent amount of time?

I am kind of a habitual smoker. I smoke mostly in the same places, and one has become my shed/workroom and it's there i smoke heavily in front of the PC. Without even noticing i could have had 5 in 40 minutes.. (Then find myself leaving, purely so i stop smoking).

So if i could swap that for an e-cigarette i'd be laughing.

If you've for a fag looking object hanging out of your mouth and your pulling on it, your smoking. You need to break the habit of smoking to fully not smoke.

I've not seen one friend succeed by vaping, yet i've seen 9 friends succeed with champix and 2 of them are pharmacists who know a bit about drugs and side effects, 4 of them are over a year off smoking, 4 just about to hit a year off them, One 4 weeks off them one 2 days off them and 1 failure.

I don't believe your stats and you shouldn't really be pulling out points like they will kill op, he's trying to stop smoking and simply dismissing Champix as some kind of murder drug is not fair on him or anyone that it's helped.

There's nobody dead on boards yet from them or Ireland.

The atomiser it comes with are called clearomisers or clearos for short. They have replaceable heads that you screw into the inside of them, like these.

If you choose that value kit, when you're buying replacement heads in future make sure to buy the 1.5-17ohm head n the drop down menu.
The heads last anywhere from 3-4 days to 1-2 weeks depending on how often you vape and with what juice (sugary juices and dark juices clog the coil quicker).
The tank part can just be washed out, dried and used again.
The batteries are rechargeable & the two will last you a full day before needing another charge easily unless you're on a drinking binge for a full day.

That'll last you long enough to figure out what questions you really need to come back and ask us next. Personally I'd just order that, try it out. Then come back and talk to us again. You'll know a lot more than you do now if you buy and try this kit out. You'll be in a much better position to ask what should you get / what do you need next.

Just make sure to choose three flavours from this page and write in the 'comments' when you check out what flavours you want and what nicotine strength.

http://www.e-smokeireland.eu/categor...how=100&page=1

They're all kinda sweet. The RY-C9 and Strawberry Milkshake I like. There are no eliquids that taste really really like tobacco. I've heard some people talk highly of 'The USA Mix' as being similar to tobacco but flavour doesn't come with this starter pack linked above.

No. If there's no smoke, it's not smoking. You're a troll.
I'd have to break the habit of vaping to fully not vape: I don't smoke and I reap the benefits of that.
Funny you say that about your friends, the ones I have that've tried to quit tried EVERYTHING to quit. Only vaping has worked (for all of them). Strange world.

Go jump with your name calling, this is a giving up smoking forum, I just gave a recommendation that a lot of boarde's would agree with and you told OP it would kill him, vested interest troll yourself.

How many dead friends have you that used champix, what a bull **** statement to come out to someone who wants to stop smoking you should be ashamed of yourself.
