I would say that the e-cigarette is better for you than the tar and nicotine a real one puts out. My friend uses them, and her Doctor was the one who told her about them. He didn't WANT her using anything, but she tried the medication "Chantix" and couldn't take it....and actually the medication made her feel horrible, and have lucid dreams, and depression. If the only way you can stop is with the aid of something, I would vote for the e-cigarette. I'm sure it has it's few flaws, but at least you are on your way to being smoke free. Good Luck!!!
Yes- they include many poisons and toxins that could enter your lungs and negatively affect your breathing. They are the main cause of lung cancer that could lead to death. They hurt people financially as well and they negatively affect your skin as well. The commercials do not lie, it is best to stay away from these kinds of things.
ALL cigarets are bad for you. True, e-cigarets don't emit smoke, but they DO have nicotine, which is the single most addictive drug on the planet. Yes, drug! It affects every single cell in your body. I learned this from my Pharmacology Professor when I was studying to be a pharmacy technician. Nicotine is bad juju, friend.
