SWAMI tweaked Explorer Super Taster from Illinois

I’ve smoked all my teen & adult life.  I quit for a while every now & then but always fall off the wagon.  It relieves stress.  I’m trying to quit now by substituting electronic cigarettes.  It’s too expensive to smoke.  I was smoking natural cigarettes at a place that had machines & a carton was ½ the price of commercial cigarettes.  But Illinois imposed a $20 manufacturing tax on them so they picked up their machines and moved elsewhere.  I’m also losing height but I think the damage might have been done from years of Pepsi drinking.  I now get my caffeine fix from green tea.  But they say smoking is not good for bones either.   Last Friday I had my annual biometrics done.  We get off on our health insurance at work if we take it. All the readings were in the excellent range.  I’ve got high of the good cholesterol and low and the bad.  My BMI is spot on. Triglycerides are excellent.  But smoking causes wrinkles and as I’m getting older, that bothers me.  It is also not socially acceptable anymore.  So I’m giving stopping another try.  It is not easy, there is something in those 6,000 other ingredients that has such a calming effect.

I grew up around smoking, so I understand the smoker & am not offended by it!
I wish you well in quitting!

Years ago, Steve King of Steve & Johnnie fame(last on WGN radio)decided to smoke a brand he didn't like, hoping it would make him smoke less. I think it worked!
Can you give that a try?

Best wishes!

I have a question for those using the electronic cigarettes.... if you use the nicotine solution, what dosage of nicotine do you use?? I bought the highest dose but I find it is too much when I'm puffing away all day long.... so I'm thinking, is it more reasonable to purchase a lower dose when you're puffing frequently all day long? Any opinions?

I would assume that the health benefits from hormesis would be one cigarette per day. Not much more. I have no clue though...

If you are around strangers, especially students, all day and breathe in the same air they are coughing into, yeah, smoking would help kill germs in the respiratory system. As well as be a relaxing thing.

I’m experimenting with the doses now.  I started too low then went too high.  I’m now in the middle.  I use Green Smoke.  I tried ePuffer but they were too harsh.  I’m experimenting with the flavors right now too.

Quoted from Amazone I.
mostly in shizo-types smoke seems to be irrelevant.....


True. I noticed a lot of mentally ill patients in mental hospitals smoke.  Perhaps the belief that it won't hurt them?

This is the one my sister uses. It's kept her off cigarettes for 2 years now.

Maybe they became addicted while "self-medicating" with tobacco. Or maybe they start smoking at the same rate as "mentally healthy" people, but lack the mental energy to quit smoking when their health is unstable.
