Hiya guys, I have smoked since I was 16, I am now 31. When I was 25 my son was born, and I quit cold turkey for 4 years. It never goes away fully though, and 2 years ago I slipped, and am now smoking 20 - 30 Amber Leafs a day (roll ups). I suffer from manic depression, and agoraphobia, smoking kept me calm and sane for this past 2 years. But my OCD kicked in. I found a swollen lymph node. Doctors, all clear, no worries, but the fear stuck with me, I fret about things, and have become obsessed with cancer. Everytime I find a lump or bump I crumble. If I can't find anything, I go digging around, I found glands in my neck, and freaked out, I poked and prodded so much, that they are now inflamed and swollen and have been for 6 months. I am making myself Ill. It's a real problem, but giving up the ciggs was hard as it helped with my other problems, I am also Overweight, and quiting makes me eat double. In the last year I have quit, for 2 days was my best, and have tried to quit over 20 times.
I discovered today in our market in town, the E Health Cigarette. Its a Vapor type thing in a black and red box. It cost £9 for the setup kit, and you charge the thing up in a plug socket. I have scoured the web for advice on these and decided to give it a shot. I have not had a cigg for 10 hours and dont want one, this device is like a miracle for me, I know its not a cold turkey option, but it seems to be doing the job, and has so so many advantages over smoking. But this is why I am here. Nowhere on the internet can I find a catch. A bad side to these. My device came with a small leaflet, no manufacturer info, nothing informal. Are these safe to use? I plan to eventually ween myself off this device. I don't want people saying, just quit man, It's not ideal for my situation, I just need to know where I stand with this E-Cigg? Health wise of course. Any sensible advice would be greatly appreciated. I really mean that.
I was informed in numerous sites that ALL toxins related to cancer are gone, however Nicotine is still present, but I can accept that for now. I want to know what other toxins are health risks are contained within?
Is there any health risk? I mean they say Nicotine is like Caffeine, large amounts is always gonna be bad, but nothing life threatening, within reason.
Where do I stand?
