Other than the three tails I grew, that was it, though.
Did the muscle cramps go away eventually? Asking because I feel pretty " tight" too. Im taking extra magnesium to no effect......hmmm........

Well, still three years without the extra junk! I haven't seen anything about tightness.

Thanks for the info on liquid.

I got 2 manuals and 1 automatic. (Just a tiny bit OCD wi mah 3's). I figured manual would be better, but figured I'd try the auto.

Btw- thanks for all the info. I appreciate it bunches, it gives me encouragement!

Yeah, they did go away after about 5 or so months. I didn't have them all that often, but when I would get them - ouch. I upped my potassium and magnesium intake which did help.

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.

Been reading up on it. It's lactic acid build up, due to PG. Pretty much all forums said to switch to Vegetable Glycol. Or drink a lot and eat a banana a day.
I did look up VG juices.........interesting flavors....caramel cappuccino, hazelnut chocolate.....I think I'll give VG a try

aha. So it was connected!

When I first started I thought the non-tobacco flavors sounded really icky. Then I tried them and settled on caramel.

I liked coffee, and chocolate cartridge refilled with menthol. Have yet to try caramel. My current favourite is V2's mint tea. Green tea with mint. Yummy

Searching for the VG's I found flavors for mixing your own. Soooo, coffee, Graham cracker, amaretto and powdered sugar gives.....
Tiramisu!!

Coming to the conclusion e-cigs are a science, compared to cigarettes, lol

I don't smoke, so I'm pretty much an outsider. Are the E-Cigarettes better for you? I could see it probably doesn't have all those bad "fillers".

The biggest problem I see with patches, gum, etc is that people replace cigarettes with them instead of cutting back like they should be. My grandmother's best friend is just as addicted to the lozenges and has been for YEARS. She blew her stack when they got lost overseas in her luggage, so much so she wanted to go home.... From Iceland.

My mom did Chantex after smoking since a young teen. She tried to quit before and nothing worked. Sure she complained of unusual and scary dreams. I would imagine it would be very uncomfortable. In reality what is more comfortable, a scary dream or someone wiping your bum, showering you, feeding you, etc when you come down with COPD and its to exhausting to do ANYTHING for yourself. Not to mention the DOZENS of other thing smoking puts you at risk for. Personally, that's scarier then ANY dream or nightmare.

On a side note, I hope anyone who smokes IS NOT ON BIRTH CONTROL. Smoking increases your risk for blood cothsI just took care of a health 32 year old who had a heart attact from a blood clot. Her excuse, "I never thought it would happen to me".
