Quit the Stick

Cigarette smoking- what do we know?


It's associated with lung cancer
as well as bladder cancer, oesophageal cancer, cervical cancer, even more cancers.

It's associated with an increased risk of heart attacks
as well as strokes, peripheral vascular disease (intermittent claudication, leg ulcers, gangrene and auto-amputations - see: wiki).

But hey, at least we still look fine, right?

Give us that million dollar smile...

...Is this all worth a nicotine rush?

Nicotine addictions can be difficult to overcome. Thanks to modern day research and technology, there are other ways around this: nicotine gum, patches, and the new e-cigarettes like the Vapestick

It's even ecofriendly (battery-operated).

This works by providing nicotine in a vapour form rather than smoke. It contains no tobacco. It gets rid of smells and second-hand smoke, making it family-friendly. 

I do not smoke and I have not personally tried this product, but e-cigarettes seems to be popular with celebrities these days and it sounds like a healthier alternative to smoking.

Are you a smoker? Will you give this a go?

What do you think? ♥

  1. Nice to see a beauty blogger varying up her posts! I'm not a smoker (never have been) but these sound like a good alternative for people struggling with their addiction.

  2. My husband uses one. He's been trying to quit for years. So far, it seems to be working well for him. He hasn't complained about it at all. ^^
