  • Hey Carol, welcome to our online stop smoking community.

    There are quite a few people who have managed to stop by using the different types of e-cigarettes, however we cannot recommend them as they gave nt been researched enough as of yer and just recently there has been evidence that they may cause some dort of harm to you... Saying that, so does smoking cigarettes!

    There are lots of different forms of Nicotine Replacement Therapies (NRT) available that are safe to use and have fantastic results and feedback. You can get these either completely free or for the price of your prescription from your local stop smoking service.

    What area do you live in? If you want to private message me your postcode, I can find out where and who your local stop smoking service is and see if they offer early evening or a Saturday morning service for you both....

    It's worth planning ahead before you set your quit date, it helps make the job easier. So please have a nosie through ome of our questions and blogs and if we can help in anyway, then let us know :D

  • "fantastic results"?, few NRT treatments achieve a 10% success rate, advice like this kills people
