The trend towards using e-cigs rather than smoking is (I believe) growing at a rapid rate and is more socially acceptable than smoking cigarettes.
I quit smoking ages ago, long before I went into hospital last year to have some work done on my heart. Up until then I had smoked quite heavily for most of my life and I fully realise that smoking was the main contributory factor in my heart problems, and as such the damage done was self inflicted. I did manage to quit a few times but these periods of quitting did not last long and I restarted smoking each time. Yes, I know and I don't need to be told that I am lacking in will power and I am not be as strong (mentally) as some of you - I'm not too proud of that but willing to admit it.
Since I quit the last time I have been using an e-cig as "a prop" and because of this i have not had the slightest inclination to start smoking again - and I sincerely hope that this will last. However, I have however noticed that I am using my e-cig more frequently nowadays so I have to ask the question "While e-cigs are believed to be less harmful to the health than normal smoking is are e-cigs adictive and if so are they harmful to our health"?
Do any of you have any thoughts on this please?
