I've tried to use ecigs to help me quit smoking a couple of times before, without much success.
I'm after something straightforward and as close to real cigs as possible - I'm not interested in messing with liquids and parts, so I'm trying to find something "off the shelf" that I get on with. My choice isn't made any easier by the fact I live in Portugal, so what I can get hold of is limited.
My previous experience of eCigs is as follows:
1. I purchased one of these sets with a range of different cartridges: SMUKY ® Electronic Cigarettes | Kit Basic Original | SMUKY® Cigarro Electrónico
Unfortunately, I found that using it gave me a nasty sinusy headache within a few puffs, even with the nicotine-free carts. The taste was pretty nasty too, and a couple of times I ended up with liquid leaking into my mouth - not a nice experience.
I wondered if the headache was due to the PG, so when I went to the US earlier this year I...
2. Purchased two disposable BLU ecigs (mainly because they were easy to find and they are VG instead.)
This time, no headache. The flavour of the menthol one was OK, but the tobacco flavour was nasty. I also found that the vapor seemed to catch in my throat and make me cough.
SO....eight months on, I want to have another go, and I'm tempted by this Green Smoke starter kit: Green Smoke Starter Kit
I know Green Smoke gets mixed reviews, but that largely their reputation is good and a lot of the criticism is down to price. Price doesn't really concern me at this point - it's more important that I have another good go at giving up smoking, which is particularly important as my wife is pregnant with our first child. I'm also intrigued that Green Smoke carts use a mix of PG / VG.
Can anyone tell me whether they think I'll get better results with the Green Smoke than with the Smuky and Blu products I've tried? I feel ready to hit the "buy" button, but would like some reassurance that it's a much better product than those I've tried already.
