I just started them and they seem to be really nice; they come in strenght from 24 all the way to 0 so i think if you wanted you could reduce the level of nioctine in them and stop smoking that way. Has anyone ever tried that before? Thats my goal. to quit smoking by Dec 31st. Oh i hope i can do it!

btw i am new! so hi!

 Hi,

My hubby is an ex-smoker...but he did the patch.

That's a tough habit to kick. Good luck!

fingers crossed

My aunt started using them because she either had to stop smoking or die basically. She is pretty much a chain smoker forever so she switched to those. Between her heart problem and her Parkinsons.. she had no other choice, however, she I've seen her with those nasty real cigs from time to time.

Hubby quit smoking cold turkey 2 1/2 yrs ago.  He went from 2 packs of cigs a day, to nothing!  He threw away all our lighters, matches, ashtrays, etc.  He just decided he didn't want to smoke anymore, due to us having a child and him not wanting to smoke around her.

If you are determined enough to quit, you can do it any way you want...cold turkey, patch, gum, meds, etc.  But a year to quit smoking?  Doesn't sound to me like you are ready to quit, though. 

Also...I heard the vapor cigs are worse for you than regular cigs.

My husband got an e-cig system last month and has been using it. He really likes it and is also planning to step down off the nicotine gradually with that system to help him quit. I think it'll work because for him smoking is as much about the habit of putting something in his mouth at certain times as it is an addiction to nicotine. Good luck with your smoking cessation goal, too! :)

There isn't any study to my knowledge that supports the claim that ecigs are worse for you than real cigs. In fact, because you aren't sucking smoke into your lungs or blowing smoke out around others, they're generally believed to be better for you (Note: BETTER for you, still not GOOD for you) and others around you than real cigs. Also, they contain significantly fewer chemicals and nicotine than do real cigs and do actually help people to quit smoking for far less than the cost of patches or gums and without the horrendous side effects of cessation meds. And while it's wonderful your husband was able to successfully quit cold turkey, that method doesn't work for everyone.

It isn't the smoke, it is the liquid nicotine that these contain that is bad for you.  More concentrated, and nicotine is a drug.  Easier to become addicted.
