e-cigarettes for dummies
January 16, 2014 3:02 PM Subscribe
I'm thinking of going down the e-cigarette route, but I've got a few questions I'm not sure about, in brief:
1) Is there any research out there on their effects on your health? I get that it's early days, and they've got to better than smoking, but are there side effects/dangers that I should be aware of?
2) Is there much difference between a cheap one I can buy at the supermarket, compared to an expensive one I buy on the internet?
3) What have your experiences been like with them? Is it difficult to make the jump from normal cigarettes?

A bit more about me: I've been smoking for about 5 years now, but since I've started working in a hospital I think it's time to stop. I'd probably smoke about 5 a day if left to my own devices, and that number goes up a lot if I have a few drinks. I'm using nicotine gum at the moment to get me through the day, but I still have a cigarette or two in the evening. I smoke golden virginia tobacco which I roll, and I don't really like flavoured tobacco or menthols. Oh, and I'm in England, so I don't know if all the brands will be the same here, but any advice is appreciated, thanks.
