I'm smoking Beedi. Quite nice, although hard to draw.

these tobacco-filled leaves deliver more nicotine, carbon monoxide and tar and carry a greater risk of oral cancers.


Sounds lovely. Errr

So I keep getting pretty strong urges to have a smoke, I think I can resist but it's annoying having to feel like this so was thinking about buying an electronic cigarette, I'd be quite happy with a disposable one for now.

What are people's experiences? Plus, there's one thing I don't get. Just looking at this - http://www.tesco.com/groceries/Product/Details/?id=267408115 It says "Equivalent to approximately 30 regular cigarettes". Without the cigarette burning down, how do you know when to stop smoking? Stupid question, but if I'm just sat here, not bothering anyone with smoke, I'd probably be sucking on it all night until I felt sick. Is there an indicator? Does it just heat up for a few minutes?

Not bad, they do actually release a vapour that's a bit like smoke. But its not the same, I got sore cheeks sucking the bloody things, got so frustrated went for a fag. Afraid I keep falling off the wagon, but at least this bloody rain is putting me off a little.

I dunno, think dellas used them.. I got sickness when I tried to use patches, I don't inhale for 12 or 16 hours so why does it make sense to have a constant intake?

This reminds me that I need to get a Christmas 'stash' in to smoke.

I like quite harsh smoke, I like to feel it claw down my throat. If it's just a bit of steam not sure I'll bother, don't really like the buzzy ill feeling from nicotine anyway lol.

You're not meant to take more than three puffs so many times a day. I was puffing on the bloody thing for ages, didn't feel sick but still wanted a cig.

what it is good for is giving you the sense of holding a cig,also when you suck it glows red at the end, bloody stupid really, but then so is smoking at all I guess,
