Do Electronic Cigarettes Help You Stop Smoking?
The big buzz for those who are trying to kick the smoking habit is the electronic cigarette, or e-cigarette. This industry has grown tremendously and is a viable solution to quit smoking, and with good reason: the e-cigarette isn’t actually a cigarette, it simply fulfills your cravings for nicotine.
The E Cig falls under the same category as nicotine patches and gums: Nicotine Replacement Therapy. In the same breath, it has the exact same problems as the other nicotine replacement methods: it’s merely a band-aid for your urge to quit.
When trying to quit smoking, I’m sure you’ve tried everything that was recommended online. None of them worked, and for good reason. Of course, the solution to this is to keep an ample supply of whatever replacement you’re using on hand. But what happens when you’re out at a bar or with friends? Everyone’s out smoking, you’re not going to be that person who turns on their e-cigarette and takes a few drags, being all high and mighty over the other smokers. It just doesn’t make sense.
There is really only one real way to quit smoking: willpower. Many people say that cold turkey is the hardest way to quit smoking, and with good reason: they go about it all the wrong way. If you know what you’re doing and stomp out your want for cigarettes before you start, you’ll be able to quit and never look back!
