I have been using my ecig for about a week now. The cravings are there, but the commenter above me is right. It's the physical movements of smoking that I needed to be able to quit. With the ecig, I still FEEL like I'm smoking (I'm inhaling and exhaling smoke and I even pretend to ash my ecig). The nicotine levels in ecigs are MUCH lower than in regular cigs, so they are not addictive.

Single disposable e cigs give u enough vapour with each puff, especially the Jasper Impulse. However I found the recharagable ones where great and save me money in the long run.

Technically, it is not a quit smoking aid, BUT people have successfully used it to quit. My wife and best friend did it like this: First they switch to the ecig, after a few weeks, they cut back the nicotine level, after a few weeks more they cut back again. Basically they use it in steps, like you do with the patch or gum. They both said it helped more though, because it also takes care of your physical addiction of wanting to put something in your mouth. (Which made my wife very happy, because she was very worried about gaining weight when she quit).The key is to make sure you start out with the correct nicotine level to satisfy your craving, so you can stop the regular cigarettes, then you start cutting back. If you start with too low of a nicotine, you will not be satisfied and not give up the regular cigarettes.It costs the same as the patch or gum to start-around $40. My wife spent about $25 a month on refills and it got cheaper as she used it less and less.Since there is no tar in electric cigarettes, she experienced slight coughing up of stuff . Our family doctor examined her and told her it was because her lungs were starting the healing process of purging the tar from them. It is common for plepoe who quit smoking.Anything has to be better for you than regular cigarettes.
