Way to go on the quitting but please rethink the "vapor" cigarette... it's entirely TOO MUCH LIKE SMOKING! Plus it's still feeding the nicotine addiction AND the hand/mouth issue. Another problem is with the vapor itself which, after much research, is NOT harmless in and of itself as it contains a derivative similar to antifreeze which is quite toxic, especially being heated and inhaled into the lungs. I also tried the vaporettes in my quest to quit (as well as gum, finally patches) and noticed severe hoarseness and shortness of breath which resoved when I quit the vapor smoking. They are quite new and the jury is still out on their safety.... I just think they are too close to the real thing to realistically KICK the habit with them.
Hope that helps. I've been off since 8/8/12 and feel great. Have maintained my weight too so you don't HAVE to gain weight either. God bless on your journey!View Thread
