I recently quit smoking, and diverted to e-cigs, I'm binning it tonight as I've read numerous articles of it actually being worse than normal cigs, defeating the purpose in the first place.

As far as health is concerned I don't think they are as bad as smoking. When used to smoke I would cough up all kinds nasty stuff but not on an e cig. However they do not aid quitting, simply move your addiction.

The only way to quit is to go cold turkey.

Just done an entire final year project on e cigs

The research is difficult to decifer at the moment as out is mostly biased but essentially you're putting stuff into body that it doesn't need and that we don't know how safe it is.

Good on you for stopping though

Having quit since new year I feel so much better. I still smoke from time to time when I'm out with friends but I no longer feel the need to smoke habitually.

Just go cold turkey the first week is hell but it gets easier.

There hasn't been enough scientific studies etc to come to any strong conclusions.

I have a lot more breath and just general levels of fitness are better. Nor do I have smokers cough anymore.
