A couple of years ago I bought an e-cigarette. It didn't do anything for me, and I went back to analogue. That e-cig was the same size as an analogue cigarette, with disposable cartridges.

I thought I would give them another go, so googled a bit, found a popular brand and ordered one. This one is a newer generation, it's about the size of a texta marker, and instead of cartridges with a sponge wet with nicotine juice, it has a tank that holds almost 3ml of juice.

This one works much much better, and I am off the old analogues for good. the battery lasts all day, and I probably use about 60% of the tank. I keep the tank topped up though, so when it gets to 80% full I top it up. They recommend you do that if convenient to prolong the life of the heating element. Not that the element is expensive, it's a buck.

The e-juice is made of food grade ingredients in the USA,  there's nicotine, the same stuff that goes in gum and patches. and the base is made of glycerol and propylene glycol, which is a non toxic anti freeze. They also use that in margarine.

One reason they use those two ingredients for the base is to form a vapour. I couldn't care less about the vapour, but whatever. I can't imagine they would be worse to inhale than analogue cigarette smoke.

The marketing for e-cigs is really really slick, they pay a lot of attention to their brand, everything from websites, to videos, to packaging, to the e-cig itself is highly polished.

There's a lot of money in e-cig companies, and old tobacco companies are buying them up. I wonder how long the fun will last until they're made illegal. Apparently you can get juice that contains cannoids, for example.

i wish they would make their minds up. I guess breakfast is currently still important for energy levels and concentration, though.
As much as researchers themselves want to believe that breakfast helps people lose weight or keep it off, the evidence is far from conclusive.
