E-cigarettes can cost as little as $0.30 per cigarette.
That’s less than a tenth of the cost of a pack of cigarettes, according to research from the University of New South Wales.
And there are no known side effects associated with vaping, according a 2016 study by researchers from the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation.
In fact, the only downside to vaping is the possibility of it getting you hooked on nicotine.
That said, it’s worth the effort to switch to vaping if you’re looking to quit smoking.
In a 2016 report, the World Health Organization said that nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) should be made available in every Australian community by 2020.
The World Health Organisation recommends a daily dose of 20 to 30 milligrams of nicotine for adults, as opposed to 10 milligram for children.
But a survey by researchers at Queensland University of Technology (QUT) found that half of the Australian population said they had tried NRT but “hadnt had an immediate benefit”.
The study found that just 5 per cent of those surveyed had been able to quit without nicotine, while a quarter of those said they would quit smoking but have not yet done so.
The other 27 per cent had used nicotine in the past, but said they did not feel the same way as they did before.
A study conducted by the University at Albany found that smokers who quit smoking using NRT for a year were able to reduce their risk of heart disease and stroke by 50 per cent.
However, researchers said there were still limitations to the benefits of NRT.
“There is no proven evidence that NRT reduces the risk of stroke in the long term,” the researchers wrote.
In 2016, a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that while the benefits were clear, it did not prove that Nrt was effective for treating asthma or other respiratory problems.
The researchers found that “long-term use of inhaled NRT, regardless of dosage, may be associated with increased risk of adverse health outcomes, such as cardiovascular disease and COPD, or asthma”.
Nicotine is addictive, and it can lead to cravings for nicotine and other chemicals, especially if it’s diluted.
However there are other reasons to switch.
It can reduce your risk of developing addiction, and you can stop the craving by changing the nicotine dose or quitting altogether.
And some experts have suggested that quitting nicotine could even help reduce the risks of heart attacks and strokes.
Nicotine can also be addictive, but it can be stopped with the right treatment Nicotine can make you feel full for a short time.
But it can also make you crave nicotine, which makes you crave more.
If you start craving nicotine, you might be tempted to continue using it to get the same high.
So if you are using nicotine to achieve the same nicotine hit, you’re likely to increase your use over time, according the Australian Medical Association.
“If you don’t quit nicotine, your risk is likely to go up,” said Dr John Caulfield, chief medical officer at the Australian Academy of Medical Sciences.
Dr Caulland said you might not realise it’s getting worse because you might still feel high for a while.
“Your risk of death is much higher,” he said.
“And the reason is that nicotine is addictive.
You get a nicotine rush and you feel euphoric, which is like a high.
You then have a craving for more nicotine and you get the urge to continue, so that is why you keep using.”
You can’t just quit smoking e-cig but it’s important to find a way to switch e-cigs without switching to smoking Source: ABC News (AAP) If you’re concerned about your health, there are different ways to reduce your exposure to nicotine and it’s best to consult a healthcare professional.
“It’s important you don´t get caught up in the hype about how it can cure everything and stop everything,” said QUT research fellow Dr Sami Asher.
“That´s not going to happen, and the research is quite clear.
You don’t stop smoking and you don t stop vaping.”
However, Dr Asher said you should consider quitting vaping if it does have health benefits.
“E-cigarettes may help you reduce your smoking and your exposure,” he added.
“But they are not going help you quit smoking.”
If you are concerned about smoking, talk to your GP about your vaping needs and whether there are any treatments available to help you stop smoking.
