Whatever you need...: First, congratulations! i think you need to do what you need to quit smoking & stay quit whether it's taking zyban (bupropion) or Chantix or nicotine patches/gum/sprays or electronic cigarettes. Sure, you're sometimes trading one form of nicotine for another but at least you're no longer exposed to carcinogens (cancer causing stuff). Exercise & good nutrition helps, too.

First step: Quiting is an important step. Understanding why & perseverance will follow. Although no chemical substances as in a cigarrette, vapor or other types can still cause some damage & risks.
