i'm quitting smoking after thirty years. thought about just getting a disposable e-cigarette, but decided to try juul. wasn't too bad at first. tried quitting before (about seven years ago). the nicotine gum didn't work for me (gum you don't chew). tried electronic cigarettes then too. they've improved since. also tried the nicotine lozenges. still have those left.
juul works well. downsides would include the strength of their 5% pods. bit strong, but may be necessary. however, compared to cigarettes they were/are less expensive. about a month after i switched they cut their flavors. kind of a shame since three of them (fruit, mango, and cucumber) were pretty good. plus the cost went up for their pods.
bought some of the beard salted caramel and banana butt right cheek to refill pods with 0% nicotine fluid. also worked to cut the strength of half full (juul's 5%) pods.
rather than buy juul's tobacco flavors i tried the ovns duo. bought a few of the 503 flavors. those have worked well, but higher vg to pg ratios haven't worked well with ovns duo/cookie pods. if i transition over to those from 503 nic salts before i quit vaping i might get a different device to do so. notable that nic salt fluid isn't recommended for some systems.
the duo stays in the on (heating) mode occasionally. this tends to dry out and try to burn a duo pod's wick. strangely it's not always the pod in use. it does cut off after about ten seconds when that happens. their cookie battery/unit doesn't seem to have that problem.
if i had to try this from start i'd pick up one or two of the ovns cookie sets and one or two of the 503 nic salt flavors. where i live cigarettes are $6/pack. i was a pack a day smoker. i went through about a juul pod a day. juul pods hold .7ml and now cost about $5 each.
the ovns and two flavors of 503 will qualify for free shipping if you're considering trying to quit. personally, i like the lavender flavor of their purple rain fluid, but also used to smoke cloves.
