Something I feel strongly about... quit smoking, and how to do it.

Post by johnspack on Thu Jul 24, 2014 7:45 am

I smoked for 40 years. Started when I was 12. Horribly addicted, tried patches, gum, inhalers, zyban you name it. Nothing worked, I promptly went back to smoking. I discovered something called an electronic cigarette. I have not had one smoke in 7 months now! It uses a mixture of a food grade propylene glycol, and food grade vegetable glycerin, when heated to a very high temperature turns into a water vapor. They add nicotine at varying strengths you pick, and flavoring. Nicotine is addictive, but it is bolstered by 4 additional addictive alkaloids in tobacco, that make it more addictive. Nicotine is also not cancer causing. Tobacco contains upto 7000 chemicals, 150 are known lethal poisons, 70 of which are known carcinogens. The e-cig delivers a smoke like hit, with the nicotine you crave, and makes dumping tobacco much easier. You will still withdraw from the other 4 chemicals, but it will be much easier. They did a study in the States and found e-cigs had a 60% success rate for quitting smoking. That is many times higher than any other method. In the States you can buy e-cigs with nicotine in any corner store or gas station. Up here in Canada, we need to get them online. A couple of sites to get you started:
