NICE to back use of e-cigarettes in new smoking cessation guidance


I have not smoked since 31 Dec 2014. The hard part previously has been avoiding relapse at times of stress. In this context I have found e-cigarette (vape device) invaluable. The best devices are not easy to set up so I advise purchase from shop, not online, to get it set up correctly. Suggest quit normal cigarettes, wait for pangs to happen, then use vape. OK it's not totally safe but no CO2, no tar, no lingering smell, low cost. BMJ says
