    Coralie, for $3.95 or so shipped you can get a sample box. It's a win-win. And please let us know what you think. I just had ne of those moments, should I go outside moments, but it's about 95 degrees F outside, so I took my little pill and I'm happy.

    For awhile.

I didn't expect much at the beginning, but I'm finding that I really like those things. They definitely work, in a different way that snus or dissolvables, and they are perfect as a supplement to vaping. The interesting thing I noticed is that while snus is somewhat relaxing, the CigRx is both calming and stimulating, not unlike cigarettes. I now always have a box in my purse and pop a pill whenever I have to sit through a lengthy meeting or other social gathering where vaping or even snusing would not be practical. It calms me down and sharpens my faculties in a very pleasant way. As a matter of fact, it's become my favorite way of fighting cigarette cravings.

    I'm not sure how and why it works, but it seems to be working very well for me. YMMV, of course, but I highly recommend ordering at least a sample box. I was pleasantly surprised.
    This sounds like it could be an good compliment to vaping? Just ordered a single sample pack for $4 bucks.

    That is precisely right. In my experience thus far, CigRx -- when used with vaping -- provides some of what is missing from vaping alone.

    To me, the difference was more subtle than I'd hoped, but the effect is beneficial.

    Now, if we could just get tceight, kinabaloo and/or Dvap to tell us the best way to make the CigRx tablets vapable and add them into our regular eLiquid, then things might start getting really interesting.

    Frankly, I am surprised that one of them hasn't already done this and reported the results.

    I thought this was interesting for anyone looking to avoid employer testing for tobacco use.

    A useful piece of information about which I had been wondering is revealed in this study:

    "The half-lives of anabasine and anatabine, based on urinary excretion data, were found to be 16 h and 10 h, respectively"

    So, whereas the CigRx website only has data showing anatabine levels over the course of the first hour or so after taking a tablet, this study appears to suggest that the half-life of the anatabine in CigRx is ~ 10 hours. By itself, this is potentially actionable information for self-titration.

    This also gives us a benchmark against which to measure our subjective experience when taking CigRx in tablet form, and -- hopefully, in short order -- when using the CigRx converted to vapable form (i.e., when we are able to vape a combination of nicotine, anabatine and yerba mate).

    Are there any updates from people using these?
    Still using them? Not worth it? Best thing since sliced bread?
    Thanks

    Feedback has been mixed. Some have claimed significantly benefit. Others, not so much.

    One sample pack is free (I think there is a $4 shipping fee), so why rely on another person's opinion instead of just trying it yourself?

    (that was a bit snarky )

    The trial isn't listed on their site anymore, but I've emailed them about them. On their site, they want to lock consumers into those horrible auto-ship schemes- and their least expensive ($40), is quite a bit of money for me right now. I'm fighting with my insurance over thousands of dollars in apparently necessary monthly prescriptions & procedures for heart & kidney failure.

    I wouldn't rely on one persons opinion. If we had 10, or 20 people concluding exactly the same thing after the 5 months since the thread was active (particularly without few detractors) that would be useful.

    I definitely did not mean for my comment to be snarky or rude, and I apologize if it came across that way, deusXmchna.

    I'm also sorry to hear about your health challenges and your battle with insurance to cover medically-necessary medications.

    I don't know anything about CigRx's current promotions, but you can call them and ask about the getting a free or inexpensive sample package. I believe several people have commented that they were pressured to sign up for large orders, recurring orders, etc. Evidently, the key was to keep repeating that the only way you are going to try their products -- and potentially become a longer-term customer -- is if you are given a sample pack.

    If that doesn't work, there may be someone on this forum that buys CigRx regularly, and could send you single container to try.

    Deus, I've been using my CigRX for awhile now, on and off, in cunjuction with vaping and snusing. I think it helps, somewhat, but it's not a smoking replacement pill. I feel it provides a little MAOI kick, which is nice, but not a game changer.

    Snus and dissolvable tobacco, like Stonewall and Ariva, provide whole tobacco alkaloids, just like cigarette smoking does. BTW, the company manufacturing CigRX also manufactures Stonewall and Ariva, which are excellent. I know nothing about being pressured to make repeat orders, but I ordered my first carton a long time ago; it may have changed since then.

    I agree with Tescela that the best way is to just order a single free package and try it for yourself. If you can't find it on their website, give them a call and ask if the offer is still available. If not, I'll be happy to send you a sample.

    Tescela is not snarky, trust me! Never has been. Just helpful.
