Do e-cigarettes help with smoking cessation?

Although e-cigarettes have been touted as a way for tobacco smokers to kick their cigarette habit, e-cigarettes in one study were only about as effective as nicotine patches.

Comment from: Chris, 55-64 Female (Patient) Published: September 04

I smoked for 44 years. In the last few years, very heavily - sometimes more than 2 packs per day. I tried everything to quit and had given up hope until a friend came to visit and I tried his e-cigarette. I bought my own and within a week, I smoked my last cigarette. I have been more than 3 months tobacco free and I feel great. My apnea is gone and I can breathe through my nose again, for the first time in years. I no longer snore I'm told, and I am energized and feel years younger. I even lost 10 pounds. E-cigarettes have been a miracle for me. I never want to go back to smoking.

I'm 55 and started smoking when I was 12. I was up to 3 packs per day. At first I tried one of those e-cigarettes that look like a cigarette, and it didn't help at all. Then I tried a more powerful vaporizer, still no go. My son vaporizes for clouds. He taught me a lot and told me what he thought I should get. I bought a battery powered vaporizer, with a separate tank. And I even make my own juice, so I know what's in it. I haven't had a cigarette since! It has been over a year now. I highly suggest that if you're going to use a vaporizer to quit smoking, do some research and buy a powerful vaporizer. Some are very strong, but I prefer to vaporize at 11 watts, just right for me. I make all different flavors of e-juice and it's awesome. I don't crave cigarettes at all any more. Cigarettes stink and make all your stuff stink. It's pretty amazing the difference vaporizing has made. I don't care what the so called 'experts' say. Yes it will let you quit smoking cigarettes! Make your own juice, it's easy and you will have chemical free e-juice.
