Anyone ever try these?

I started gradually smoking while drinking a couple years ago, and it picked up to a full-time thing
I've quit for a while but still when I drink I always get that craving. These seem like a much safer alternative, (no carginogens, no actual smoke since it's all vapor, and the ability to get light, ultra light, or nicotine free cartridges) not to mention much cheaper. $60 gets the e-cig, replacement battery, chargers, and like 25 cartridges that equals out to like 275 regular cigarettes (
)

So for the people that have tried these or know people who have tried these, what is your opinion on them?

I have friends that got them and they're everything they're cracked up to be. The downside is, since you won't smell like an ashtray and you only have to carry the one cigarette around all night that it's easy to smoke it like hookah and just smoke on it all night long. Especially since it doesn't physically burn away. But the buzz you get is so pure and concentrated. I took a few drags off of one at a kiosk (with a new filter, obviously) and had a nice little buzz going on.

Here's what I've been lookin at:
http://www.blucigs.com/starter-kits

White or Black e-cig
25 Cartridges (5 of each regular, menthol, java, cherry, vanilla) Each cartridge is about 15 cigarettes
battery + spare battery
atomizer + spare atomizer
Wall Charger + USB Charger
and a "pack" that works as a battery charger and cartridge storage kit when you're on the go

the kit costs $60 which seems like a lot...but 25cartridges x about 15 cigarettes per cartridge = 375 cigarettes. Which would be almost 19 packs at around $6.50 per pack = $123.50.

That's why I was asking because this seems like a no-brainer. "Healthier", no smell, no smoke, no ashtrays, and much cheaper. The hookah feeling could be the one drawback cause I get a weird head buzz sometimes with hookah. I'm really tempted to try this though

I just bought one a few days ago!

I am locked in my job all night and can't smoke, so I decided to try one. I bought the $12.99 disposable by "Gamucci" to just try them out. It comes with 1 cigarette and 1 cartridge that is 375 puffs. They had just got in the menthol too.

It's OK. It has a mint flavor and it kinda like you're smoking, just no smoke. An old lady at my job ratted me out for having it in the break room and even though they are legal indoors, the day bosses didn't like it and told me I couldn't smoke it there, even though there is NO smell, NO smoke and it didn't bother anyone!!! So, I just take an extra bathroom break or two.....

Downside with this brand - I don't know how the $70 kit works, but the disposable has a button and it lights up green. I seen a guy at the poker table in the casino that had one w/o a button ("lit" when he inhaled) and it lit up orange with a fade in and out like a real cig. It actually looked very real. The battery doesn't charge cause it's a disposable of course. Oh yeah and it has a green butt....

Kit - USB charger and car charger.

isnt there also an electronic cigarette disguised as a pen?
people that need to smoke during an office meeting will look like they have a pen in their mouth, when theyre actually taking a drag

These things are equivalent to "weight loss" pills.

I don't know if they are effective ways of quitting, but I have no doubt that they are much healthier than smoking crude combustion product.
