    and have ultimately tried to reach a happy medium where you are not completely wrecking your lungs... do you have a relatively reliable brand of electronic cigarette you could recommend to me? I picked up the habit my freshman year unfortunately but I'm looking to avoid tar as to keep my run times up. Sometimes when I run my lungs burn a bit and I absolutely hate that feeling.

    If you're here to tell me to quit, I respect your opinion and plan to this summer after I am done dealing with finals. Thanks to anyone who can help.

    Coming from a person who smoked for 7 years and quit cold turkey, I can tell you that planning on quitting never works. Because putting a timetable on quitting, what will those extra cigarettes really do for you between now and later?

    I finally reached my breaking point when I was so depressed at being so addicted to them. I think every quitter needs this watershed moment in their life to quit but unfortunately not everyone does (which is evident because so many people don't quit).

    I wish you luck in quitting. The best advice I can give you is that it is a scary feeling thinking about what life is like without cigarettes, but you will definitely get over it. After all, you spent 18 years of your life as a non-smoker compared to 3 or 4 as a smoker.

    I've used the G6 from Halo . It is the same model as the one sold by Bloog and the G6 parts are interchangeable with it. Halo has better tasting juice. Eliquidplanet Essence line at has great juice, too.

    Make sure you're using a high enough strength to combat cravings. If you smoke more than a pack of reds per day or the equivalent, try 24 mg. Half a pack or a pack of lights, 16-18 mg. Less than that, 12 mg. Very individual thing, but you have to get this part of it right to get the most benefit.

    Good luck!
