Stop smoking with the e-cigarette

It looks like a cigarette and feels like a cigarette, but it isn’t as bad for your health as its cancer-causing counterpart. At least that’s what its Chinese manufacturer wants us to believe.

The e-cigarette is a battery-powered device that —when smoked— will emit vapor and feed your nicotine-riddled body its addiction.

“In many ways, smoking the e-cigarette is like an actual smoking experience, and that’s what makes us different” said Scott Fraser, Vice President of SBT Co. Ltd., the Beijing-based corporation that originally developed the electronic cigarette technology back in 2003.

The e-cigarettes currently sell for approximately 1600 Yuan apiece (around $208 U.S. dollars) and are available in China, Israel and many European countries. Unfortunately, they cannot be found as of yet on the US and Canadian market, but with the current media coverage that the technology receives, it shouldn’t be very long until we see them appearing in North American stores.

So, here’s a question for smokers out there: Do you think e-cigarettes will be more effective to stop smoking than other traditional means such as nicotine gums or patches?

  1. I think I would try it. Whenever I've tried to quit in the past, I found that trying to break the habit of the motions of smoking was harder than reducing the craving for nicotine. The hand-to-mouth action of this item, coupled with nicotine replacement, has potential as a viable means of smoking cessation.

  3. I'm trying to quit…i've designed my own google gadget that tells me how many days i have left to quit…LOL

    This brings a whole new choice…

    Pitty, this piece of tech may not be reaching Argentina ever…

  5. I'm on day four of quitting and I'm using the patch. I'm getting the nicotine I need, and I think it is important that I break the habit of the hand to mouth action. I'm doing okay so far, although my sarcasm is far more biting and my kicks more accurate. I suppose 14 years of smokin will do that to you…

    • I've never actually smoked myself (Except for a cigar 2 – 3 times per year), so I can't really tell how trying to stop smoking feels like. But I do remember that many long years ago, when I was living at my parent's place, my mother used to turn into a total harpy each time she tried to stop :)

  7. I can wholeheartedly recommend these products to anyone who's considering giving them a shot. I've been using mine for a few months, its really made stopping smoking easier. Does take a little getting used to but its got to be worth it to be free of the evil weed :)
