I bought a nicolite e-cig from WHSmith for £20, 19 days ago (you get 2 cartridges, equivalent to 40 cigarettes, and a USB charger - refills are 3 for £6.99 - equivalent of 60 cigarettes.


I used the e-cig and thought it was good.


For the first week I used 2 cartridges. Before I gave up I was smoking between 10-20 per day. (usually 10 in the week, more at weekends if I go out)


Found it fine, then week 2 started taking it to work, but leaving in my car, so i wouldn't use it, but could go and get it if things got bad enough that I felt myself about to ask someone for a smoke.


I haven't used it since Thursday now, but am going to keep taking it to work and leaving in the car, as a comfort blanket.


I've given up before but never found it this easy, the thing that I think is key, is remembering they've got nicotine in, so you will eventually need to give up the e-cig, if you don't want to stay a slave to your nicotine addiction!

p.s That's not an ad for the nicolite one.


I got it as was the cheapest one I could get in town.


If you're going to be keeping it longer than I plan to, you can get bigger ones that look like pens that have all sorts of flavours.


To me though, they'd be too enjoyable and I'd end up struggling to give up fake cigarettes!!!

Hi there,


I have been smoking for 40 years at between 10-20 a day and have tried giving up before but failed


I bought an e cigarette and have not had a proper one since 1st december, gave my daughter any cigarettes I had in house and told her to get rid of them so I would not be tempted, I did buy 2 rechargable cigarettes so when one wanted charging I still had the other one, not missed smoking one bit, and my chest and health seem to be better, give it a go, If I can do it, im sure you can, and good luck to you all who are trying.

I have been Smoke-Free for about 2 years now. Yes I did try Nicotine replacement but it didn't work for me, if anything it made things worse. So I 'bit the bullet' and went 'Cold Turkey'. Not the easiest option, But I had prepared myself for it beforehand, I was making the conscious choice to retake control of my life.

A friend of mine did exactly the same as you. She had smoked for over 20 years, but her teenage son was worried about it and begged her to stop.


She made her last cigarette a special occasion, sitting in the sunshine and enjoying every puff, and that was it.


Yes, she did find it hard for the first couple of weeks, but said it was actually easier than she thought.


Well done, and also, Welcome to CAG to all of you new posters! :-)

Champix tablets worked for me, though I have known people who have become ill taking them and had to stop. They are available on prescription. You take them for three months and during that time you carry on smoking, but after a couple of weeks I no longer wanted a cigarette. Had my last one on Jubilee Day, after smoking for nearly 50 years.
