I’m thinking of buying an e-cigarette, is it worth it?
Answer by Miles Dolphin:
Yes – if you are a smoker.
No – if you are not.
E-cigs were originally designed as a replacement for tobacco cigarettes, and have evolved from the first generation "cig-a-likes" to the big powerful mods and atomisers at the top of the current range.
So, if you are a smoker:
Not all e-cigs are suitable for any one person, pick one to suit yourself, your habits and needs. A current first generation e-cig is fine as a "proof of concept", but may not suit you in the long run. Experiment with other types and other flavours, it has taken me a while to settle down to one main set-up and a couple of reliable flavours, but it was worth it.
I would suggest that you visit a competent vape shop as close to home as you can and ask for their advice.
If you are not a smoker, just think very hard about all the cash you will spend fiddling with your new pastime, and the fun you can have watching your money blow away with the vapour on the wind. If you still decide you want to, FFS use a zero nicotine e-liquid.
