E-cig Blows Meth-like Clouds, Reduces Cravings. HQ pics.

Preface/Disclaimer: So anyway, this is just the anecdotal report from one person.. ME, so clearly the results will be different per person. The clouds have not been proving to be a "trigger" any more than anything else in everyday life for me and I'll take what I can get trying to get through my first year off of meth. This is a purely psychological occurrence as there is nothing in an E-Cig that isn't in a regular cigarette, in fact there is MUCH LESS in an e-cig than tobacco cigarette but once again.... purely psychological.

For those of you who prefer(ed) to smoke meth over any other ROA and have found that one of the hardest parts of quitting (or the comedowns when you're going without) is not missing the drug itself, but rather, missing the act of smoking... THIS IS FOR YOU!

I recently bought a Blu e-Cig and have found it to be fucking incredible at stress relief/mood increase simply because the clouds (water vapor! not smoke) remind me EXACTLY of good old meth clouds... the likes of which I havent blown in almost a year. After associating the strength of psychological addiction to a drug like meth with a certain kind of smoke/coud density the smoking of cigarettes or weed or really anything else which doesn't blow cumulus-fucking-clouds is just not as fun to smoke and all ends up getting compared to meth in my head.

That is simply not the case here.. for the simple reason that the experience of the blowing of E-cig clouds is very much indistiguishable from that of blowing meth clouds... hands down best replacement for just the smoking experience that i've tried without having to feel like I've relapsed into smoking amphetamines/stimulants. I'm not generalizing smoking stimulant drugs as "bad" or anything, I just have quite a tendency to binge so I prefer to steer clear. Anyway If anyone else has experienced the relief this technology has provided me with.. share it here. I'm very interested. If no one has, someone try it and get back to me. I provided pics so you would all realize how similar to meth we're talking here.

Best part is... theyre cheap as shit for replacement cartridges which equal OVER one pack of cigarettes EACH in nicotine content and is advertized as "containing 250 puffs" per cartridge. This number has proven to be over 300 for me personally and I'm taking meth sized hits so they seem to be making the number seem more modest than it is. This is possibly to make the consumer feel like they've won something when it lasts way longer than it says (which I admittedly do). lol Did I mention that they come in 4 or 5 different potencies, the lowest strength actually being totally free of ANY nicotine at all. Awesome.

So here are the pictures... please comment on using e-cigs as a coping mechanism for the behavioral aspects of meth smoking and it's potential negatives vs. positives. Really want to read people's input on the subject.

An interesting concept for tapering meth smoking, happy it worked for you, Nice pictures
Splendid idea. Well described and illustrated. Good work.
That's freakin' awesome!!!! Yea mang...the ritual and smoke are what make it addictive--so what I've heard. Can't see your face--priceless. :). Where did u purchase?
And can you sit there and clean the e-cig as well? I think I miss the whole procedure of a session...

Re: E-cig Blows Meth-like Clouds, Reduces Cravings. HQ pics.

Well I think they're an excellent substitute for the 'oral behavior' that became such a habit for me, both with cigs and meth.

Although I have picked up cigs again, I am getting sick of the cost and the smell, and even though it takes me a couple days to get through a pack, I am about to quit them again anyway. I just kinda wanted to get some meth free time behind me before I tried to deny myself anything else!

I dunno about the whole cloud thing, dude, cos tbh, I never really got it. I mean, years of pot smoking taught me that blowing out loads of smoke was "bad", so I can't say the size of my vapor cloud had much to do with my addiction.

But I am glad you mentioned it, as its not something I had consciously thought might help me with my cravings, so think I may go e-cig shopping later!!

And well done you, for continuing to find alternative methods of addressing your addiction. Good going!

I find that I'm more addicted to watching it melt, the smoke building up in the bubble and the taste of meth. Maybe thats just because it's new to me since I've never smoked out of a bubble pipe before.

After smoking meth for the first time, the after taste of ecigs reminds me of the taste of meth. Oddly the taste of meth does not remind me of an ecig. Perhaps the smoke of the ecig is another trigger, i just havent realized it yet.

Yes I can relate... I am working on procuring some non-psychoactive substance (at least when smoked) that would fully replicate the subjective experience of smoking methamphetamine without any high out of an "oil burner" (glass dick). As in... melt, smoke, blow out HUGE cloud, recrystallize, repeat, and maybe throw some scraping and cracking-back in there with it. Sounds like that would be a good replacement.. The e-cig is my current fix until I can start doing little chemistry experiments with crystals (probably DMAA not meth) inside a pipe again. Smoking crystals is so fun! Well... no it isn't but I am still quite addicted to crystal meth although not actively using so for me personally I still view the smoking as fun ONLY because.. to be honest.. of how euphoric the meth was making me feel and the association with crystals and smoking them that doesn't seem to be going away no matter how much further I get from my addiction to meth. My (not active) addiction is clearly much more manageable today than the day I quit obviously but if anything the craving to find other crystals to kick back and smoke has only gotten worse ....Strange.

I watch videos of people smoking meth on youtube occasionally, it's like porn for me.

Unfortunately not, as source discussion is against the rules but without getting too specific, the brand is Blu e-cigs and they sell disposable ones at most gas stations in the US. A google search will get you all the info. you need on it.

Very interesting Reason4ryme, I think you are on to something here, this may very well be the missing link in kicking a addiction to smoking meth, or at least it is a tool to assist those whom seek help with stopping a drug habit... Nice thread

Re: E-cig Blows Meth-like Clouds, Reduces Cravings. HQ pics.

Thanks a lot beenthere! This is the first time i've used the site for more than a 10 minute time period in a couple of days so it's nice to see some homies I know (lol) commenting on some threads I started.. makes me feel welcome. Also, lady_reason just got the rechargable Blu e-cig starter kit and I attatched a picture to show that the smoke looks about the same if not MORE meth like than the disposable (as well as how lucky of a man I am haha). It should be mentioned that most of the flavors besides methol are difficult to take large rips of without coughing due to the heat of the vapor, the soothing of the menthol couteracts the heat a bit and makes it far easier not to cough although my favorite flavor so far is tied between Vanilla and Cherry.

Re: E-cig Blows Meth-like Clouds, Reduces Cravings. HQ pics.

I too, have used e-cigs, I've never smoked meth, but I'm glad that it helps so many people.

I only want to say that my blu was great. For about 6 months. Then my desk was a mess of different batteries that never seemed to work properly, half empty cartridges that stopped producing vapor, and atomizers that all looked just slightly different, and each one varied in the way I had to puff on it to get a good hit.

The best e-cig I owned was from prosmoke, although it had its quirks too. It was more expensive than blu, came with fewer accessories, and was a little shorter, but I'll explain its pros and cons.

Cons - Prosmoke compared to blu.

The starter kit comes with one battery, so if you happen to run that out of juice, you have to ****ing wait for it to charge in the wall for 2 hours before you can go back to it.

Charging, oh man, blu charges waaaaaay faster, and comes with the charge on the go case. None of that fancy business with Prosmoke, not at all. This thing takes 2, sometimes 3 hours to charge. And it only charges in the wall. It needs some serious juice in order to charge, your laptop won't cut it.

The taste. Oh man, blu tastes so good! Admittedly the Prosmoke's tobacco flavor (my personal fav for blu and PS) tastes almost as good as blu, but, damn, blu just has the best tasting cartridges.

Okay on to the Pro's of Prosmoke

Battery life. If you buy an extra battey, you almost always have an 8 hour window for charging it, because the battery in the PS lasts about 4 hours if you sit at your desk and chain smoke the equivalent of 4 or 5 packs in a row.

Atomizers. Ok, so some bad, some good. I was originally disappointed by the PS, because no one told me, and their website certainly didn't admit, that the atomizers have a break-in period of about 500 puffs. My experience was thus: it sucks. It still sucks. Man, I should return this, it sucks. Am I getting anything out of this, is it broken? Oh god--hackweezcough--OH FFFFF GOD! What the hell is this? Ouch that's a lot of vapor all of a sudden, why did this happen!?

Another thing, it "warms" the vapor. Sometimes this is pretty cool. Sometimes you chain smoke it and it starts to be... a little too hot.

Th cartridges. Expensive. Oh yes. But! Each cartridge, puff for puff, (after break-in, and tested by me but in no way is this some sort of rule or fact) lasted as long as 5, sometimes 6 blu cartridges. And there wasn't that awkward "it's almost out of juice and it kinda makes smoke, maybe?" like the blu's. These just went from a large, good, flavorfull, 24mg nicotine smoke cloud, straight to nothing.

Anyway, just wanted to share some opinions, and waste some time while I'm at work much love, and I'm so happy these have halped you with keeping the cravings for meth at bay. I know full well the pull to go back to a habit because of the process of engaging in it, especially smoking. E-cigs provide relief by mimicking the motions of smoking in a way no gum will ever match.

Re: E-cig Blows Meth-like Clouds, Reduces Cravings. HQ pics.

I'm a HUGE fan of the Joye/Janty eGo. I currently use an eGo A most of the time, but I do sometimes bust out my eGo-T tank.

I have a 1000 mAh passthru battery. This thing is FUCKING AMAZING. OMG. The throat & lung hit is amazing, and the vapor produced is obnoxious. This one thing is all you need, since you can use it while it's charging.

I had a hard time using a pookie the times I've used meth, so I don't know about the meth vapor thing, but I *DO* get GREAT satisfaction from blowing ridiculous clouds of vapor with my e-cig. My friend has an e-cig he likes, but he's all addicted to mine now that he's had access to it for a couple days. heh heh heh.

Thanks for the comparison and review. Can you say how long ago you had this blu as well as if it was the premium pack... That's what we have and it works wonderfully, the only "awkward" clouds as you describe them seem to be one or two at the end, but ONLY with the disposable blu. The one we got flashes the light 15 times when its out to tell you it needs a charge. It's working beautifully so far although i admit we've only had it less than a week.

Edit: AND LOL kailey! I have never heard of someone getting addicted to blowing huge e-cigwithout having the meth association first. Maybe it's just a cloud thang??

Wow, R4r, most rightous pics!! Put the spanker in the shade dude, I must check this out, as I really hate anyone using tobacco ciggies in my home, this could give way to a great door prize party favor and the next event, biggest cloud, most perfect shape, animal shape.

kudo's on your staying off the shit, and finding new, interesting ways to combat the urge to use again , I saw the pic of your lady friend in the 'show your breasts' thread, dude.... you have to do whatever it takes to keep her in your life, I love how you said you just loved watching her sleep, made a tear roll down my cheek, just freakin' awesome!! And I'm a gay man. Not that that matters, just sayin'.

Have you or anyone been able to blow smoke rings with these??

Thanks monkey, L_R4R and I are somewhat in a state of conflict ATM so i'll be able to use that comment to diffuse her a bit. She thinks shit like that is adorable and it generally pacifies her rather quickly.

On the subject of rings, yes it can blow rings... in fact it has quite a nice advantage over weed and regular cigarettes in the realm of rings. Basically with weed or cigs you need to just hold the smoke in your mouth and blow the Os which means that you're not getting any of the nicotine/THC into your system... so O's generally amount to wasted drugs. With the E-cig you can INHALE huge rips and blow Os straight from your lungs without the smoke getting less thick (visably).

Absolutely, at the time I first bought my Blu I was on my 416th attempt to quick my pack/2 pack a day habit I'd nursed for about 6 years.

I had the starter pack, the one that comes with 2 batteries, 40(?) cartridges in various flavors, a wall charger, the Blu charging pack, and 1 atomizer (I bought an extra too). It worked WONDERFULLY for about 5 months. Then one of my atomizers seemed to go out, this is where the "awkward" puffs, that, for me had been just the last 2 or 3 as well, started to creep into the 20-30 puff range.

I swapped atomizers, but both had been used about equally, and inside of a week it was acting just like the other one. My batteries, which used to last for 2 hours of constant joyful puffing, could barely make it 20 minutes without requiring a recharge. I realized I couldn't use the Blu charging pack to hold them when I was on the go, as the slightest jostle caused the atomizer to kick on. This left me, on far too many occasions, opening my freshly charged pack to find both of my batteries, that should have been at full power, dead or very close to it.

I bought a few extra batteries, and a few atomizers, a couple more cartridges, and this is where the disappointment really set in. The new batteries were a little longer than the previous ones. Apparently they'd changed their design, maybe improved their battery life? The new batteries were barely working with the old atomizers, and of the new ones, only one consistently turned on when I puffed. One battery, I discovered, just didn't work. Thankfully they sent me a replacement and a few bonus cartridges ASAP (good customer service, I'll never badmouth their support staff, you can actually get a PERSON on the phone when you call!) and I broke into them.

At the 6 or 7 month mark this was how my Blu looked:

1. Charging pack - never used. On one car ride, it bumped around a bit and activated the battery so much it burnt out an atomizer, one of the good ones too! I couldn't use it for fear of draining or even breaking my remaining working batteries.
2. Atomizers - 4 of them. 1 required the sucking power of a Bissell. 2 were broken. The last worked wonderfully--every 3rd puff.
3. Batteries - 6. 2 completely dead. 2 that lasted 15 minutes MAX. 1 that only worked when blown into (how useless). 1 that would last 30 minutes, but seemed to disagree with the 1 working but difficult atomizer.
4. Cartridges - This was the real killer. I had so many cartridges. SO MANY. And I had literally NO IDEA which ones still had juice in them. The continual malfunctioning of the batteries and atomizers, and continual frequent charging, had me thoroughly confused as to whether the battery was dead, the atomizer wasn't working, or the cartridge was out. Basically I wound up pitching about 10 full cartridges in all.

I gathered everything up and pitched it in the dumpster all at once and ordered my ProSmoke, which has its anomalies too, but really delivered a more consistent and enjoyable experience. Not more enjoyable than the Blu overall, I just mean to say that for the first 4 months of both e-cigs (barring the break-in period of the PS) they were both about equally enjoyable. Blu has the best tasting cartridges of course, but at the 5, 6, even 7 month mark, my PS (now with a second battery and second atomizer, and only on my second batch of cartridges :V it is amazing how long they last) was still going strong. Surely its battery life had shrunk from an impressive 4 hour constant marathon chain-smoking endurance, but it still lasted about 3 hours.

The PS is a lot less prone to being activated by waving it around or blowing near it as well. I found that the Blu, if exposed to ANY movement, will almost always turn on, and that is killing your battery life and wasting your nicotine gel!

Everything said, I would definitely say that your best bet for Blu is to use whatever comes in the starter kit, and ONLY that. Order cartridges, but no spare batteries or atomizers, and just wait until you start seeing your performance dip. When it does, go ahead and just buy another starter kit. It seems like when all of the parts are packed and shipped together, they work together. Blu, I think, is pretty regularly working to improve its stock, and if you order, say, a battery that has recently been updated or redesigned, and you slap your older model atomizer into it, it might not work as well. This is really speculation, but if I went back to Blu, I'd only use batteries with atomizers that were ordered simultaneously.

Re: E-cig Blows Meth-like Clouds, Reduces Cravings. HQ pics.

Wow, reason4rhyme, this is a most interesting discovery
My friend absolutely does not do meth.
My friend occasionally is stupid enough to bum a cigarette, then buy a pack of roll-up, then packs of american spirit(non filters). His wife bitches about it and he quits for 3-4 weeks, smokes one, quits for a few weeks, starts back...ad infinitum
BUT...this friend has found that when he quits, he joneses a lot for cigarettes, and smokes cannabis instead. And it is the feeling of large amounts of smoke in his lungs, that is what he missed. He would pour out the water, put fresh water and ice in the bong, and take take master-blaster hits, cough, repeat. And, its not "expensive", per se', But it seems to be wasting cannabis, as puffing that much HAS to be a waste(especially when he has taken ONE hit in hte morning, and fixed coffee, and was high before taking the second hit.

Super congrats on quitting the meth. If you ever need any advice or someone to talk to, Im here, bro

He is jonesing now, but his wife had to quit cannabis for 2 months for bullshit reasons, but in solidarity, he quit too. 24 hours down, 59 days X 24 hours left( 1416 hours...) so he feels like a bozo for opening his mouth, "Ill quit with you, baby, its okay, we can do it" he said. What a dork

There is an entire subculture with ecigs. A little society that uses, makes and modifies ecigs and accesories. Here's a pic of mine. I got something called a clearomizer on it. It's a tank and a atomizer in one. There is crazy stuff you can modify your ecig with. It gets to be a little hobby...for me anyway. I buy straight ecig juice and even mix my own flavors! Or I order....Vanilla custard, Caramel cappuchino, vanilla late'You can get batteries with increasing amounts of voltage that make it just INSANE the kinds of clouds you can get.
I'm such a froggin geek with this stuff. Just to give you an idea. People (not me) spent easy $200 on one ecig. No kit just the cig. ANyway didn't mean to get all geek'd happy vapeing. You are now officially a vaper! I quit cigarettes with it. A ton cheaper as you know

On the subject of rings, yes it can blow rings... in fact it has quite a nice advantage over weed and regular cigarettes in the realm of rings. Basically with weed or cigs you need to just hold the smoke in your mouth and blow the Os which means that you're not getting any of the nicotine/THC into your system... so O's generally amount to wasted drugs. With the E-cig you can INHALE huge rips and blow Os straight from your lungs without the smoke getting less thick (visably).

Re: E-cig Blows Meth-like Clouds, Reduces Cravings. HQ pics.

Excuse the bump, but I found the similarities between e-cig smoke and meth smoke to be pretty surprising myself.

I have been sober from meth and other drugs for 4 years, and just started trying e-cigs to quit. I noticed a weird thing when I first tried it. I was on my way to class and when I parked I was searching through my car for a pen in a manner than reminded me of when I was tweaking -- this was even before I noticed how the e-cig vapor smells almost exactly like meth.

It could be that I did in fact smell the similarity and was subconsciously under the impression that I was smoking meth , which changed my behavior... or its even possible that vaporizing gloycols found in ecigs (and coincidentally meth) and ingesting them through my lungs also triggered a physical response

Now that I have made the direct observation of the fact that they smell the same, smoking e-cigs kinda stresses me out since it reminds me of meth, which recently I had seldom been thinking about. I don't think I can continue using them if I can't break the association of meth with the smell of e-cigs.

Which makes me curious why they smell the same.

It could be the fact that they dilute the nicotine with propylene glycol, or polyethylene glycol.
Its my understanding that those glycols frequently end up in meth because they are added as a filler in psuedoephedrine capsules and are particularly difficult to remove from the final product.

I am curious if the similar smell is actually just the glycol, or if perhaps the similar structure of chemicals that activate the dopamine receptors would cause them to smell very similar. Perhaps some of you could rule out some of these possibilities, having tried various types of e-cigs with differing ingredients.

Mantanuska added 835 Minutes and 31 Seconds later...

To amend my last post I would like to clarify that it was the regular flavor from cigalectric that was giving me those problems. I have since figured out that the flavored stuff from blu does not smell like meth at all, so it doesn't bother me at all.

A very interesting observations for a first post, thanks for the addition to the thread.

Re: E-cig Blows Meth-like Clouds, Reduces Cravings. HQ pics.

In regards to avoiding glycols and the associated addictive trigger, psychosomatic or not, many mail order companies offer 100% VG (Vegetable Glycerin) e-juices as well as at many local shops. Most companies use a 50/50 mix. I actually prefer the VG anyway as it produces more vapor than PG. It has other side effects as well such as dehydration, though mild generally, and it raises blood sugar. So if you are diabetic then you wanna go with the VG as well. I could go on but thats all the ape infobthat pertains to this specific subject and there is no need to wax intellectual online.

By the way this information is all inspired hy this thread I created an account so I could hopefully help y'all chase clouds without tasting somethin thatll trigger your thought patterns. Also, it pertains to those who vape with refilliable, reusable and even fully mechanically rebuildable. As someone said it can become quite the hobby

Much love to everyone! Peace

Re: E-cig Blows Meth-like Clouds, Reduces Cravings. HQ pics.

I have an unusual perspective on this interesting thread...it was the vaporizer's lovely billowy clouds that actually played a part in my decision to use meth for the first time.

About seven months ago I bought the best vaporizer on the market at the time--the Vapor Zeus. It cost a pretty penny, but at a pack of cigarettes a day, it became cost-efficient in about two months. I loaded it up with one of their hundreds of different flavors and instantly fell in love! I stopped smoking cigarettes the day it came in the mail and haven't touched them since.

I noticed early on that my vape created huge clouds that twisted and swirled in a way I kind of became addicted to. I never got cool swirls like that smoking cigarettes and weed! I was aware that meth vapor looked very similar to my e-cig's vapor, and sometimes I would imagine I was smoking meth with it--obviously, I had never used meth before as it was on my "never to do" list--hell, it was the only drug on that list--and I was just having fun.

The more I smoked the more I thought about meth and the more I became curious about what meth might be like. This wasn't a quick process, but happened over the course of the first month vaporizing with the Zeus.

One night I simply could not handle the boring weed high, and was unwilling to wait out another opportunity to score painkillers, so I made some inquiries and though I was scared yet excited--I have 20 years' worth of drug use and abuse behind me, but it's incredibly rare that I get to try a new, strong drug I never have before--I found a new friend and finally took the plunge. It was a great time, and I enjoyed myself quite a bit. Of course, that first time was followed by a second, and fourth, and sixteenth...

Fast-forward six months: I now have a very heavy psychological addiction and physical dependency to meth that I should have seen coming (or at least, should have snapped into reality early on and stopped my use when I still could). It turns out that with the best product, I can and do vaporize my dope in exactly the same manner I once pretended to do it innocently enough with the Zeus.

Since I smoke meth multiple times every day now I do not crave meth when using my vaporizer. In fact I crave the way I felt just vaporizing and being silly--that's what I want. Go figure!

Not for nothing but I prefer the battery and tank method of vaporizing. cheaper than popular disposable e-cigs as you are only really buying the liquid and occasionally a replacement coil. If you want the cigarette look there are slimmer batteries and atomizers but I like knowing I have something that has the power and capacity to last all day with maybe one refill of liquid.
