I'll try to keep this brief. Recently found the "are we getting it" thread and was fascinated by the discussion. Have a 30 pack/year history, and I like tobacco. RYO, pipe and occasional cigar. Still smoke a few as the e-cig just doesn't deliver the right stuff.
After reading that thread and a few others in this section decided to try a higher nic e-juice and the CigRx product from Star Scientific. WTH - spent $$ on every other NRT they've brought out - yes, been there, tried them all. Been combining CigRX, Stonewall and higher nic juice. Just a couple or three Stonewall and CigRx a day.
Now here's the thing - not really trying to quit, just getting my toe wet so to speak and have been surprised that when using CigRx and not just Stonewall I forget to pick up the e-cig (or smoke) but when I do the higher nic juice takes care of the need. Without CigRx this never happened. Suddenly I notice a couple hours have gone by, and I'm still good.
Did not see any personal CigRx stories, thought I'd throw this out if anyone else want to share. Thanks.
Did you see this thread?
tobacco alkaloid pill?
Can't wait for my Cigrx order!
I have ordered the CIGRX. I am so excited to try it. It appears that they have a backlog and it may take a while to ship, but they will send email to let me know when they do.
OUCH! Pricey stuff! I'll stick to vaping. Thanks for posting it.
Well, according to UPS tracking, my Cigrx will arrive on Tuesday. I will let you all know how it goes when I try it. However, THANK YOU FORUM. Thanks to this forum I researched the company (Star Scientific) and bought a truckload of shares below $2 last week. I figured I may either lose it all and look stupid or make some money. But the real decision maker was that I figured if I did lose it all, at least I would at least have better health for me and my entire family because of this little compound RCP-006. I, for one, am not going to get Alzheimer's.
200 pieces of Commit (now called Nicorette) lozenges cost $70 or so at Costco. So $39.99 for 200 pieces is not too bad a price. The caveat, though, is that these do not contain nicotine. Tropical Bob recommended combining one of these with 1/2 of a Stonewall orb. These contain 4 mg of nicotine, which TBob finds too strong, hence cutting them in half. The Stonewall supplies the necessary nicotine and the CigRx supplies some additional chemicals that are missing in both e-cigs and NRT products. Stonewalls cost about $15 for 100 pieces.
It would also be interesting to see how well CigRx augments vaping a liquid that contains nicotine.
