    E-cigs helped me quit - 1 1/2 months without a cigarette!
    sweetz79 posted:
    If you're wondering about e-cigarettes, please research, and don't bother buying one that looks like a cigarette. Look for the better models with bigger batteries (for less cost than those cancer stick lookalikes), and try it out! I'm within six days of being totally smoke free without any side effects.

    Within a week of starting to use an e-cigarette, I felt NO urge to smoke. I felt NONE of the side effects like irritability or mood swings. Best of all, it did not affect my diet, I have continued losing weight DURING the switch!

    Yes, I'm getting my nicotine, but I'm not getting the carcinogens! This is a miracle product. I feel better, I smell better, and my family and friends have all been supportive.
