E-cigarettes and quit smoking

The use of E-cigarettes to help people quit smoking is becoming more and more popular. Little is known about the health risks of using e-cigarettes and there is also debate about whether they help to quit smoking cigarettes and about how effective they are.

The following is the result of a survey done in the EU.

Expectations: Why people used e-cigarettes

The increased use of e-cigarettes to quit smoking has caused a lot of debate and uncertainty of how safe it is and does it lead to chance that more young people will see it as a way to smoke. Some interesting new information has come to light.

Are Electronic Cigarettes Healthier?

There is more and more research coming out about the adverse effects of electronic cigarettes.
At first the main objection to electronic cigarettes was that they used liquid nicotine. Nicotine when put into the body causes the blood vessels to constrict. This interferes with blood flow and causes your blood pressure to suddenly increase and opens you up to stroke.
In an effort to bypass this the manufacturers of electronic cigarettes brought out mixtures that did not contain nicotine, supposedly a good thing.
Last year researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health found that three of the flavouring chemicals have adverse effects […]

Is Vaping Safe?

Many people these days in attempting to quit smoking are turning to vaping (electronic cigarettes). The question is, is it safe?
At the moment the jury is out and that is because there is no real evidence that it is safe. Some countries are banning and others are allowing vaping.
Let’s apply some logic to this habit because after all vaping is just changing the habit of smoking cigarettes to smoking electronic cigarettes.
Nicotine is I believe one of the underestimated killers of smoking. When you introduce it into your system it causes your blood vessels to constrict and therefore interferes with your […]

Electronic Cigarettes. Are they safe?

At the moment the jury is out about if e cigarettes are safe or not. Here’s something I’d like you to consider, but before that a little information on nicotine.

Electronic cigarettes Yes or No

Electronic cigarettes are becoming more and more acceptable these days as a way to reduce or quit smoking but I have some serious concerns about the use of them.
If you look at all the cases there have been no proper studies on whether e-cigarettes are harmful or if they are beneficial. The most common factor that I can see with e-cigarettes is that they use nicotine in solution. Sure there are other mixes without nicotine but most people are using nicotine mixes.
Before working as a hypnotherapist and becoming a quit smoking expert I worked as a crop scientist worked in […]

E Cigarettes: Good or Bad?

Electronic cigarettes are gaining ground as people search for what they perceive is a healthier way to beat the habit of smoking. I get more and more clients at quit smoking in 60 minutes who have tried e-cigarettes in the hope of quitting smoking. The problem is that they do not quit, they just change the habit from smoking cigarettes to smoking e-cigarettes. I for one do not believe they are healthier if nicotine is involved. When are people going to wake up to the fact that nicotine is extremely poisonous and stresses your circulatory system.


While most researchers say e-cigarettes […]
