Hello. I'm a lurker now become a member. Here's the deal: I was a long-time asthma sufferer, and a long-time smoker. In June I was diagnosed with COPD, at which time I stopped using tobacco. I wore the Patch for weeks, and it helped. I have been experimenting with E-cigs, but with some trepidation. i.e., I don't inhale, hoping that holding the vapor in my mouth for a few seconds will get me my nicotine "hit". I am, basically, afraid to inhale. Should I be? I mean, they say it's only water vapor with liquid Nicotine, but, as my cartridges come from China (V2 Cigs), I'm a little worried. If anyone has the patience to counsel a newbie, please do. It would be very welcome. Thanks.
