    :confused: I was just curious how people smoke their e-cigarettes. This was a thread I started on Dustin's forum, but now that the big forum is back up & running, I would like to get a wider array of E-Smokers to share.

    I prefer the direct inhale over the standard analog cig puff. It gives a better throat hit. My wife can only do the analog puff, and she doesn't like E-Smoking as much as I do. I think it is the difference in the type of inhale which makes it work for some, and not for others. What does everyone else think? :confused:

    well I am new to e-cigs and have a question. What is the direct hit? CONFUSED!

    I tried direct inhaling, but I usually choke my *** off after the first hit. I've got a couple home-made mods that run at higher voltages, so I'm fine with the old "analog inhale" I do a primer puff and then pull as much vapour in my mouth as is comfortable and then inhale.

    I mean directly inhaling the vapor as opposed to filling your mouth with vapor and then inhaling. :)

    There was a few on Dustin's forum (E-CigReview.com) that said they do the direct inhale with the analogs! Now that is rough! 8-o

    Tribbletrouble,
    You may be on to something. I remember when I first smoked analogs. I cough and choke and hated it, but kept at it and than loved it. Maybe this is the same. Always something to think about!

    I always direct inhale, and always did with cigarettes, too. I don't even like to do primer puffs, although the LTv9 batteries are getting me used to them.

    Direct hits in public (cos I'm a much more peaceful guy these days). At home or in permitted locations I blow a lot of smoke rings so I mouth the smoke more.

    I am going to try to get myself past the coughing. I am having a problem with still wanting analogs. Its like the e-cig is missing something. I tryed high nic and still this problem. Right now I am going back and forth with analogs and e-cigs and the analogs are winning. Don't get me wrong I love my e-cig but those darn analogs keep calling!!!!

    You are better than those stinky analogs! Don't give up. My first day, I struggled with the difference. I began to notice on that first day that my brain missed the the harshness of tobacco smoke. That is why I started direct inhaling. Part of why none of the other smoking cessation products would ever work for me was because I missed that harsh feeling on the back of my throat. When I began direct hitting the e-smoke, that is when it all came into focus, and I haven't looked back since. If only I could convince my stubborn wife!:p

    yep...lots of folks love it,lots of folks think its missing something...but im afraid some will power and stopping buying analogues may be required in your case if you really want to go off fags completely rejoice...

    but then,im not telling you anything you dont already know,am i...;)

    edit-oh yeah,it sometimes depends on what eliquid im using whether i direct hit or mouth...but i get more throat from direct...

    I tried to do a direct hit but it seems so unnatural to do. Unless I am doing it wrong, but that sure is a powerful hit.

    I personally mouth it everytime, I tried direct hitting a few times and it just seems like I can get more throat hit, vapor, and flavor by mouthing. And I got to admit, at the pubs I tend to show it off quite a bit with the smoking ban so I want as much vapor as I can get!

    I'm a confirmed mouther !!! little primer puff , then 3-4 longer modulating puffs ....... then a direct hit to the throat with a mouthfull of vapour on the deep inhale :)

    Actually, the combo technique is pretty cool, too! ;)

    Wow! I've just managed to get the technique of direct inhaling to the lungs down. Man that hits hard! Never done that before. I've always just done into the mouth and then inhale from there.
