Do Electronic Cigarettes Help People Quit Smoking?
I am a non smoker who lost my Mother to smoking. I know several people that smoke and have been trying to quit. I see advertising for electronic cigarettes and was wondering if anyone has found them helpful in reducing (or even eliminating) the need for smoking.
With any smoke quitting tool, it is all in the way your psycologically approach the chore as well as dicipline. I am a smoker and have tried the ECig. It does give you some nicotine to take off the edge, but the real benefit is no smoke going into your lungs. Unfortunately I missed the draw of the smoke. I did not quit smoking cigarettes and have since lost my ECig. One has to really want to quit and be done with it before there is success!
Funny you should ask I talked to a guy last week about this same thing and I told him I don't think it does..I told him I quit cold turkey, that electronic cigarette still has nicotine which makes a person desire to smoke. He said they have different levels of nicotine I asked him to show me where does the FDA shows that this works he had no proof..only thing he had was people who wrote in his book testimonies of how it worked for him...
I've never smoked in my life but I honestly don't think that using one of those is going to help. If you're going to quit, then quit. It's that simple. Don't give in to what your body is telling you otherwise you'll never stop and it'll just end up killing you in the end. You've got to have control over your body, not the cigarette.
It totally depends on how you are going about. Some people are able to quit cold turkey. Especially if some major event in their lives happens, such as becoming pregnant, or loosing a friend or family member to cancer. It gives you that extra kick to quit. Either way you go about it. It is never going to be simple. Some people need to wean themselves off of smoking. Which is where these products come in. Take someone who smokes 2 packs a day. A product like this can a least help to wean them down to a few smokes a day. Which yes, they are still smoking. However, a couple cigarettes is better than 2 packs. From there it will be easier for the person to quit completely.
All of that being said. The person still has to be 100% sure they are going to quit. If they aren't decided on this. Using stop smoking products, or quitting cold turkey is not going to work for them.
Yes, using a product like this is still giving you the nicotine. However, it is not also giving you the harmful effects of tobacco smoke. So for those who need to wean themselves off of cigarettes. This can be a better approach.
I was a smoker and I have switched to vaping. I tried quitting for the last 20 years and until I was able to switch to vaping I was poisoning my body, getting sicker with each puff. I'm not here to say the e cigarette is completely safe but I can definitely say the dangers are no where near that of tobacco.
I too have lost family to cigarette smoking and I wish vaping had existed years back but we can't turn back time.
My deepest sympathy for your loss and I pray more people keep switching to vaping to at least get off those dangerous cigarettes.

Are there any downsides to using electronic cigarettes to quit smoking?I've tried everything else. Now I plan on purchasing an E-cig (though not that brand) to help me quit. Are there any downsides to using these? Are they any worse for me than the cigarettes I'm already smoking?
