    Smoking cessation studies recruit people who want to quit smoking. In Polosa's studies, anyone who said s/he was interested in quitting was excluded from the study.

    One) the coil isn't wet and it burns
    Two) there isn't good wick to coil contact and the part of the coil that isn't getting juice is heating up and giving the burnt taste.

    I got my kayfun lite to work from the start but it kept giving a frequent to occasional burnt taste. As long as ...

One of the ones that is JUST enough to annoy.

    Right now I've got a small bit of it over the top of some 1/16" OD 7x7 316 stainless rope with
