Witch is worse between electronic cigarette with nicotine or Nicorette (nicotine gum) gums?

Witch is worse between electronic cigarette with nicotine or Nicorette (nicotine gum) gums?

No difference: Overall, there is no real difference. E-Cigarettes deliver the nicotine to the user in a very similar fashion as a regular cigarette (hand and mouth movement).
