    List Of Electronic Cigarette Brands (Careful)

    As a previous poster mentioned, I too visited a resource on electronic cigarettes (seen above). I also got the V2 kit and it helped me get off tobacco cigarettes, and then eventually I got off e cigarettes as well.

    One thing that I didn't really realize when I made the switch to the electronic cigarettes was that they have not really been around that long, so they really haven't been researched that much as far as how they effect health - and there's evidence that they could not be very good for you. So my advice is to just make sure that you do your research into them as much as possible.

    Just make sure that you look at trusted resources like WebMD and not sites like the above - because many of those sites (I later learned) make a commission from any sale they make.

    I actually found an article from WebMD on this exact topic called "e cigarettes under fire". If you Google that phrase it will come up for you.

    Again I'm very happy to be done with smoking (both real and electronic cigarettes) but if I had to do it over I would have done more research on the electronic cigarettes and possibly just tried to quit cold turkey or with a nicotine gum.

    Hope this opens some eyes, or at least encourages you to do your research.
