I quit smoking 7 months ago using the E-cigs and oils. I smoked for 30 years. I can finally breath again. It's amazing. The downside has been the ACNE. I'm 51 and have never had ACNE like this in my life. I only use the smallest nicotine , 6 mg so it must be the oils in the juices causing it. Ive made no other lifestyle or diet changes so it can only be attributed to the e-cig oil. I'm considering dumping the e-cigs altogether now but want to be careful that I don't go back to smoking again. I've heard around 40% of people that quit with the e-cigs eventually go back to smoking. The local service stations in my area don't make it easy for folks. They always seem to only sell 24mg nicotine oils which will only keep people addicted to nicotine. Not sure how many people have the ACNE side effect from the E-cigs, but its REAL.View Thread
