I visited the Quit Smoking Community because I saw it was on this list of top 15 smoking cessation blogs, so I thought it would probably be great. And it was, the information on quitting cold turkey was motivating and helpful.
But I was surprised to see that they found e-cigarettes to actually be an acceptable tool. They said that if you use e-cigarettes the same way you use nicotine gum, weaning off by cutting down the amount of nicotine you use over a period of time, than it's a great option.
And I agree because I was a heavy nicotine gum user for about 2 years, and I went from having perfectly healthy teeth to being a "high decay" patient. There are patches too but I have an oral fixation.
So anyway, I purchased a kit from V2 which they recommended and it worked very well. I started with the mid-range level of nicotine and was down to the lowest amount within a couple of weeks. It was a little harder to go from nicotine to non-nicotine but I did it. It was so much easier than all the times I tried to go cold turkey.
There's a lot of bad talk about these e-cigs but I think if used right they coudl be the best nicotine replacement product on the market....
Just my two cents. I'm so happy that my mood no longer depends on whether I've smoked or not, it feels great.View Thread
