Try to stop: Whoever introduced you to e-cigs was NOT your friend. If they told you that they are "safe", they lied to you. Please do whatever you can to overcome this addiction. The damage to your lungs is not as bad as with regular cigs, but it is still real. Be tough and quit by whatever means you can.
