Are e cigarettes safe? If not, are they better than regular cigarettes and how? I want to quit smoking, my body doesn't need it but my mind wants it.
We Don't Know: No extensive studies have been done to test the safety or e-cigs vs regular cigs.

Have to pass a nicotine drug test for work just quit smoking 3 days ago what can I use to cleanse my body of the nicotine from showing up?
No: There is no evidence that "flushing" the body with excessive amounts of water will remove more of any drug, but it will sometimes make the urine so dilute that a drug they are testing for (cotinine) may fall below the detection limit and come up "negative." substances like milk thistle and other herbals are touted to help, but are unproven.
