For those trying to give up, how do e-cigs stack up? Helpful, a panacea, or just a bit of a distraction?
I know people who've smoked for a long time, and have talked of various schemes or attempts, over the years, that they were going to give up - especially these new programs at doctors / clinics where they try their level best to help you. Last thing I saw they'd dived on that bandwagon that is e-cigs, but were still smoking some normal cigarettes a day, but at a claimed, reduced rate.
To me, that just sounds like every other attempt, where they've claimed they were smoking less for a while, then after a bit, revert to form - but e-cigs do seem to be becoming much more popular - that'll have to be stopped, there's a revnue stream to consider, selfish B'Stards - it's prime case for needing taxing - sorry - regulation, after all, they're clearly quite dangerous, people are dropping like flies from using them, aren't they...?
When I gave up after 13 years I didn't find the so called addiction to be any problem at all, gave me a bit of a cough, but what I really struggled with was the habit, the not having one with my coffee or after doing something or after dinner, you know what I mean, so the rolled up rizla's were brilliant, I'd have definitely used an ecigarette if they'd been around BITD when I gave up. It does help also if you've decided these taste shiite, but if the loves still there it is much harder.
You can't buy happiness but you can buy a bike and that's pretty close
