Welcome to the forum madyus.
Not a good method you're promoting, however, in the e-cigar.

Does absolutely nothing to deal with the psychological attachment most smokers have nor the nicotine addiction all smokers have with cigarettes. This product is designed to 'replace' the cigarette, but with nothing to replace the psychological aspect of smoking (let along the physiological addiction to nicotine), this method is not effective for the majority of smokers out there.

Even hypnosis has more evidence for smoking cessation than this method. This is the real world of smoking - it's no easy fix problem...

I thought that was a joke post...could you imagine inhaling a fake cigarette and blowing out air? You'd feel like a right tool.

First, defeat the habit of buying matches and/or lighters. That should pretty much solve the problem.

Nah, I've been out of both and lit a cigarette off the stove burner and even a couple of times over the vent hole of my wife's ceramic kiln (up to 2300 F inside one of those things).

My father smoked Camels and died a horrible death of lymph cancer at age 52.
I was an impressionable youth of 16 at the time, and that convinced me to never smoke anything, ever.

Hi Chris, sorry to hear that ...

My father-in-law almost lost his voice 10 years ago due to smoke, so he had to quit. Even so, his voice is still muffled all these years.

I guess it's a bad habbit which not only costs you quite some dollars (especially here in Singapore, a pack of smoke would easily cost over 7usd), it'd also cost your health, and probably life. And worst of all, your family would suffer w/ you.

Yes, there are lots of harrowing experiences about friends and relatives who smoked and suffered as a result. Smoking should be near eradicated if people felt strongly enough about these expreiences. Unfortunately even the most graphic TV, newspaper and magazine campaigns seem to only have marginal effect at getting smokers to quit. Many know they should do, so the campaigns are like preaching to the choir, but this choir lacks the ability (and/or will) to follow through on their convictions.

So now, we're finding a new wave of smoking cessation happening with these new medications, since there are a lot of fence-sitters waiting for the new product to push them over the edge... only it does nothing for motivation - and that's where smoking cessation needs to be targeted.
