Jenny just bought me an e-cigarette. My mom stayed here while she went to buy it, since I'm basically under lock and key tonight haha. She brought it up to my office where I've been secluding myself (what else is new?). She said that if I'm going to chain smoke in my office, I should try the e-cigarette, because she said you can smell the smoke in the hall. My office is the only room in the house where smoking is allowed. That was the rule I made when I bought it. But I only have the window open a crack because it's fucking freezing outside and I've been chain smoking, so I guess the smoke scent isn't confined to this room like it usually tends to be. I usually have the window open more than just a crack. Plus I usually spray Febreeze and sometimes light candles, but I don't give a shit today. So it has been pretty smokey in here. Now I'm supposed to try this damn e-cigarette. I've had drags off of other people's before and didn't think much of them, but I've never had my own before. So far I don't know what I think of it. It's ok, I guess. But a real cigarette is so much more satisfying. I wonder if the nicotine content of an e-cigarette is close to that of a real cigarette. I don't know. But I know I real ones better. Jenny has been wanting me to try e-cigarettes for a while now anyway, since they're not nearly as bad for you. I don't know. So far I definitely prefer my real, normal cigarettes, but maybe I'll switch on and off. At least for now, so that I can continue to chain smoke in my office. Chain smoking is gross, I know...but it's a hell of a lot better than what I could be out doing, given the way I'm feeling right now.

Those of you who have tried e-cigarettes...what are your thoughts on them, and what are your favorite kinds/favorite brand?

This really isn't the same, but at least it's still menthol. The ADD/ADHD part of me likes that it lights up at the end every time you take a puff of it haha. So that's one good thing it has going for it. That and I sit here amusing myself by blowing smoke Os since it's just vapor, and I'm not holding like...tar and shit in my mouth to do it. Blowing Os with a real cigarette is just kinda gross. That should be left for hookahs, smoking weed, and apparently e-cigarettes haha.

I'll catch up with you guys later and respond to the comments you left for me. Right now I'm just too fucking drained and still really emotional, so I can't think clearly at all...let alone focus on reading and think of things to say in response.

I hated the e-cigarettes for awhile. I recall my younger brother getting one, and smoking it obnoxiously indoors at dinner. I didn't like how the vapor smelled.
That said, this past Sunday I decided to try to quit! I've never really tried before, and it's been over 10 years. I bought an e-cigarette for no real reason except for an 'oh fuck' moment.
It has helped me SO MUCH. I'm pulling off it right now. It tastes sort of strange and has no nicotine (They aren't legal here in Canada with nicotine...does yours have it?) but is quite nice to have.

You take care, mmkay? You have at least one person (who isn't even a US citizen) knowing that you'll push through this and make it out alive on the other side.
Keep your kids close & your mind clear!
