Electric cigarette £1 @ Poundland the first step to saving lots of money!

Obviously not everyone's cup of tea but for those who are trying to find an alternative and starting to try and quit this could be good!
.
Electric cigarette x 1 usually these cost quite a bit but they have just got them in today. It is equal to 10 normal cigarettes, and what many consider a starting point to stopping smoking and ultimately lots of money saving.

I guess that depends on your company. Mine states they should be used as if they were normal cigs, and therefore smoke them off premises.
In public areas, ie shopping centres etc they could be (from a distance) be confused as being real - so I reckon you'd be up for a few close looks by security.

People smoke them in my local pub. At the office if folk object just have one in the loo. Noone would know, they leave a smell something like talcum powder. Well worth a try for a quid.

Nicotine Poisoning
IMPORTANT: Nicotine is a known toxin, both ingested and absorbed. It is very important as an e-smoker to be aware of the dangers of e-liquid that contains nicotine.

Precautions and warnings for Nicotine:
Nicotine is not safe for pregnant women, or women who beleivg they may be pregnant, or are trying to become pregnant.
All nicotine products must be kept out of the reach of children and pets.
Nicotone is highly addictive substance

A packet of 20 cigs is around £7! A disposible ecig lasts the equivalent of 20 cigs! The normal price of a ecig is around £7!

That is why this is a good deal...get your head around it(_;)

Those aren't studies - One is the Daily Mail for gods sake! The headlines "may cause damage" says it all - MAY. There are no "facts" as the studies have not been done, at the moment its impossible to claim any ill effects from using these - but as they are not yet "proven" safe, they will always be sold with a warning.

Also, as there is no evidence (again due to the lack of studies) its not allowed to offer this as a smoking cessation aid - thats not to say they wont help you quit smoking, but as yet the evidence is not there.

Personally, I used an "e" cigarette to quit smoking about nine months ago - I had tried everything (hypnosis, patches, gum, spray etc,) over the years without success and I found these worked.

All I would say is I did a LOT of research before and the one thing that I found repeatedly was people saying to avoid these cheap ones, they do not work and put people off the whole idea.

My advice. based on my experience, is that they do work, they cant be any more harmful than smoking (to my mind) but buy a proper one (around £50), buy the liquid yourself and control your intake.

For me personally, I started smoking it like I would a cigarette (I was on 40 a day so it didn't leave my mouth for the first few days). As I got used to it, I as able to control it and very simply weaned myself off, it really was painless and I havent had a fag since March.

And do not contain:
Carbon Monoxide
Rat Poison
Gun Powder
And alot more
In the news today:

"Nicotine itself is not a particularly hazardous drug," says Professor John Britton, who leads the tobacco advisory group for the Royal College of Physicians.

"It's something on a par with the effects you get from caffeine."

"If all the smokers in Britain stopped smoking cigarettes and started smoking e-cigarettes we would save 5 million deaths in people who are alive today. It's a massive potential public health prize."

There are however concerns about the safety and regulation of e-cigarettes.

So are e-cigarettes safe?

"The simple answer is we don't know," says Dr Vivienne Nathanson from the British Medical Association (BMA).

"It's going to take some time before we do know because we need to see them in use and study very carefully what the effects of e-cigarettes are."

Johnash118 here, i have been a vapor for just over 4 years. I have read every for and against article and study that has been published online. Adam you cant go telling people like this guy that they are wrong - he is obviously another one of the blindly follow a tabloid article brigade. 2 of his supposed proofs are the same article published in 2 different places. I read it and found it hilarious. they studied a whole 24 people for 10 minutes. wow that gives them 100% accurate results then - ha, ha,ha. a we all know a study like this is bs propaganda. you would need to study at least 1000 of each type - smoker, non smoker etc over at least 6 months for anything meaningful to show up - i cant believe this guy used the daily mail as his proof - ha, ha, ha. The 3rd one is just some opinions. would almost be funny if it werent for ignorant people like this stopping people using ecigs
I am just using an e cigarette for the first time as I am typing this. Gonna take a bit of getting used to as the brain is still set in baccy and roll up mode! But am gonna persevere. Ok its still got chemicals in but they dont stink the house out and got to be better than the cheap lung killing baccy I been smoking!
I am a passive smoker and would like everybody to use e-cigarettes. It is cheaper and a much healthier alternative. Buy a the actually e-cigarette from Poundland for £1 plus the liquid for £1. I cannot see those simple ones that came with a charger. I only see them in the shop itself. poundland.co.uk/lei…ies and the bbc programme with Michael Mosley who used to be a doctor that used volunteers over several weeks showed how much better it is for a smoker. It has much less harmful substances. They had evidence that the body recovered when switching from normal to e-cigs. It is not real smoke just vapor. There is no evidence that passive smokers are badly effected. I am sure it is even for me it is much healthier having a e-smoker around than a real one.When I pass people with e-cigarette or have to stand near them at a bus stop it hardly bothers me at all whilst real ones always do. I understand that not everybody is willing to quit but then please use e-cigs.
