I am a hard-core smoker; trying to quit many times but unsuccessful. Maybe I don’t have the “will power” or maybe the friends that I am mixing around are majority smokers. Anyway no body shall be blame…..
Just to recommend my latest method for those who are in the same boat like me. Basically I am not recommending people to smoke…..so don’t misunderstand!
I started Electronic Cigarette….well, it save me a lot of money and acts much like actual cigarette. I don’t feel guilty when smoking in my house for contributing 2nd hand smoking for my family.
But, still one things ponder myself whether the vapouring from the e-cigarette consist any harm on our health or not?
Don’t ask me to kick off the habit of “Ta Nak” which I know I can’t do it………

well, it is the tar in the cigarette that kills you and the nicotine that causes the addiction, so in the case of the e-cigarette, since no tar content, should be safe.

Anyway, i am a 1 pack a day smoker and have tried to quit many times but always failed due succumbing to smoking's temptation in the end but from my personal experience in trying to quit smoking, I can recommend Nicorette's inhalator. It helps in reducing the craving but the rest is up to you. You can find it in major pharmacies like Caring or Watson. Go to here for more details http://www.nicorette.co.uk/stop-smoking/products/inhalator.aspx

well, coming from a smoker's perspective, put it this way, I am sure you have seen many pics of horrible car accidents, so does the pics make you stop driving? :D

p.s.- actually it is my new year's resolution to quit smoking.. so far for today, I have only smoked 2 sticks when in my usual days, it would already be 10 sticks... still hanging there and still weak in my resolve... :)

As far as safety is concerned, the way I see it is this - I'm already taking God knows how much chemicals into my body because of my cigarette smoking. How much worse can vapouring be? At least I won't be affecting anyone else with 2nd hand smoke.

The fact is that Nicotine is just as bad for your health. I believe this is just a gimmick and nothing more.

There was an article about e-cigarette in TheStar JAN 03,2010:

It looks like a ciggie, tastes like a ciggie, but then ... (http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2010/1/3/nation/5405489&sec=nation)

You decide for yourself if its a gimmick or not?? :confused: :confused:

I started e-cigarette slightly a month ago...it is working well with me, just hope no side effect in due time....haha!

this e-ciggie is not some new thing, its been around the market and even on facebook since last year.do check it up on it.

anyway, one way to quit smoking i wld suggest is go to the gym or do some exercise, not to distract u , but more of reminding u how much stamina ur losing by testing urself on the treadmill, that is a really good wake up call.

Almost everything taken in excess is bad for health.You're right, Bob. But the problem with cigarettes is that once you start, it takes over! :eek: You'll want more and more. There's no such a thing as smoke in moderation! My advice is don't start. If you're already smoking, make a concerted effort to quit for good.

At the very least, it'll be less polluting to the home environment and the family. That's the least us dysfunctional smokers can do, eh?

I bought it in Hong Kong for HK$ 700/+ complete with 100 cartridges/filters and a starter kits. I believe there do have it in Malaysia but I really don’t know where there are selling. Maybe I can get it for you during my next trip to Hong Kong.

I believe there's an outlet in Sunway Pyramid that sells the starter kit for RM250 or so ..

There is a shop selling this in Summit. It is either on the 1st or 2nd floor. It is towards the B-Point side but located at the 'central alley'.

understand this e-cigarette is not approved by FDA and no clinical trials have been submitted to FDA........................


read the excerpt from the website of world cancer organisation http://www.cancer.org/docroot/ped/content/ped_10_13x_guide_for_quitting_smoking.asp



from the website, it was reported that FDA sampled and analyzed e-ciggy in 2009.....>50% found containing cancer causing substances...............



in my view, heavy smokers must seek help from doctor to quit smoking. the nicotine withdrawal system cud be too difficult for individual to overcome without medical help.................




i hv a french colleague who was a walking chimney with min 5 packs/day for >20yrs. he eventually undergone clinical medication for a couple of weeks and he successfully quit the habit totally without 1 puff ever since.............................

addictive? try this.. my late uncle was in the hospital for a by pass surgery... during the recuperating period in the hospital , he'd sneak a puff in the room when no 1 was in the room... of course the smell of smoke lingered...
