    I stopped smoking 3 months ago and use an electronic cigarette now. I'm addicted to it and don't miss the real fags at all. I'm losing weight slowly.

    Just like to add that I gave up smoking 2 years ago using patches. It lasted for 6 months but I gained 2 stone!! Stress of a new job finally made me start smoking again but I did quickly lose the 2 stone I'd gained. To me using an e cig is just like smoking so if I'm in need of a smoke I vape instead :-). and it doesn't make me want to eat more either. It's the hand to mouth bit that I need and vaping stops me missing that.

    I stopped smoking 14mths ago...originally I lost a stone as I dieted whilst quitting smoking...I have since yo-yoed and am currently 2 stone heavier than when I first quit :-(. I do however believe it is possible to quit smoking and lose weight at the same time, I found dieting helped give me something else to concentrate on and take my mind off the cravings. Good luck xx

    I'm another vaper. E cigs are brilliant as they fulfill that craving. They're a bit strange to get used to at first but once you've started you really don't want to go back. Especially as you can get lots of lovely flavours, I only know one person who's stuck with tobaco.

    I got mine from www.nicolites.com but I've noticed the ones that you have to put oil in yourself are very popular lately and have hundreds of flavours. They seem to sell them on most markets I've been to.

    You can get them from shops or online. I'd probably say going to a shop to get your first one would be best as they'll be able to advise you on things like what strength liquid you need and what cigarette will suit you best. If you google e cigarette and where you live you should find somewhere local.

    Another vaper here - I gave up ages ago but have since been on and off the cigs (usually when I've had a drink). The vapour e cigs are fantastic, I have been using mine all week and managed to stick to the diet no problem. As cherry-blossom says, they really do stop the cravings. Currently having a mix of tobacco and apple and it's lovely - couldn't recommend enough! I honestly don't think I could have done it without them, stopping smoking makes me run to the biscuit tin like there's no tomorrow!
