I thought the initial draw of smoking was that it's supposed to be cool.  Now it's just going to be addictive and dorky?

I wouldn't buy stock. E-cigarettes are nasty. Everyone tried them, once. Plus "due to a credit tied to a landmark tobacco settlement...."

For something so 'nasty' I've sure been using them for a long time. May 4th will be 1 year with out cigarettes.

Close to 3 years for me now. And I know at least half a dozen other people who have quit and stayed quit using them. They're not perfect yet, but they are fantastic devices. I get to breathe and not feel all stabby--brilliant!

E-cigs are brilliantly simple.  For me, I found that the PG or VG base continued to build in my throat, and eliminated it as an option for me.  I definitely see the value for those who dont experience this, as it was a great "healthier" method of smoking.

And damn did it taste good.
Atomic Cinacide (Think atomic fireball),  Amaretto Sour,  Caramel Macchiato?  Yes.

I worked on a project as a contractor for Lorillard last year. I had forgotten that the tobacco companies were exempt from regulations about smoking indoors. That place was a throwback to the seventies. Smoking in offices, conference rooms, hallways. You had to go outside for fresh air. And they demand the employees wear coat and tie (which had to be dry cleaned every weekend to get rid of the smell). It was like living in an episode of Mad Men, only there wasn't a hot redhead with big hooters around.

All the smokers at my office in Kuwait switched to e-cigs. Not to cut down on smoking, but so they could still get their nicotine fix without leaving the AC.

 They're a lot closer to perfect now than even a year ago.  These days I use an Innoken MVP as a battery device for my primary, and their iClear 1.6 for tanks.  I dabbled in rebuildables for a bit, still have a few just don't have much time for the hobby side of it any more.  Started at 18-24mg and now down to 12-16.  No real plans to "quit."  Orlando has a couple of really nice brick and mortar stores that don't price gouge so that's good.  
 I've managed to convert a half dozen or so friends, and about as many people at work.
 And yeah, I feel like crude when I wake up.

Nice! I checked out one of the B&Ms a couple months back--they have some decent stuff.

I've been cigarette-free for 15 months now, using a GGTS and Ithaka. I vape 0-3mg just for fun. It has become a hobby for me now--how crazy low I can get my coil ohm'd, how high the watts can get.

I get into esmoker on Orange about twice a month. Usually just for coil heads. Great crew there. Knowledgeable and passionate about helping people quit.

I'm with you on the brick and mortar shops. I'm lucky enough that within a year of ordering them online a great shop opened up a block from my office. They carry quality equipment, mix their own juice in-house, and do weekly special flavors at $10 for 30ml. I order online and pick up my order on my lunch break. It rocks.

And I'm starting to see a ton of people using them around town--especially since the local Uni banned smoking on campus. The president specifically stopped the smoke-nazis from banning the e-cigs, too. He said (paraphrasing here): we've tried to get everyone to stop smoking and now they've found something that actually helps them stop and doesn't have secondhand smoke issues; we're not going to ban it just because it looks like they're smoking.
