Is an electronic cigarette capable of helping you stop smoking? Many
people ask me that, they say, "What about the e-cigarette?"
Well, I have to tell you that it is capable. I've heard a couple stories where people have actually quit smoking using the electronic cigarette. But most times I hear that people are smoking more.
In fact, just the other day I have a friend who I'm trying to help stop smoking. And he decided to show off and come into house with an e-cigarette saying, "I'm not smoking in your house. There's no
smoke." And I said, "Oh, are you using this to quit smoking now? Are you
not smoking regular cigarettes?" And he went, "No." I said, "Oh, so you're
smoking more?" So and he actually said, "Yes, I am smoking more because now I'm smoking indoors and outdoors."
Well, I find that to be true for many, many people. I've heard more stories of people smoking more and also saying, "What am I doing with the e-cigarette when I really want a regular cigarette?"
So I don't know that it's a nicotine replacement therapy per se
but if it helps you, good luck.
