There's a lot to be said for any product that replaces the deadly habit of smoking with a much safer way of enjoying nicotine. I personally find nicotine use very pleasurable and I'm relieved that there are so many safer ways of partaking these days. I started by using the mini cig but found the taste to be off-putting so I now use the nicotine inhalator which delivers an extremely clean and pleasant nicotine hit. In the initial stages of using nicotine without smoking you will always have a bad withdrawal from cigarettes if you cease immediately and replace it with either the e cigarette or use NRT. Why this is the case, I have no idea - I call it the four day dip where I feel nauseous, dizzy, foggy and generally out of it. By the fifth day of total abstinence from cigarettes there is a sudden change and I feel a million dollars - my body feels clean, I can breathe easier, and I'm much much more relaxed than I was when I was smoking. There is also a massive increase in energy. I think this is an extremely important point that everybody should be aware of when making the switch. I'd personally advise the total abstinence of cigarettes and ride this 4 day dip as it's extremely rewarding when you come out the other side. At present, I'm completely happy to consider the long term use of the nicotine inhalator as studies show that the long term use of nicotine is not harmful. I'm convinced I'll never use cigarettes to deliver nicotine to my body again. So - whatever you decide to use, enjoy that nicotine but never - ever smoke those filthy and extremely dangerous cigarettes again.
