In brief: Nicotine is a toxin

So it is still not safe.
Auricular (ear) acupuncture can be very helpful for smoking cessation.

In brief: Safer but not safe

Vaporized nicotine is almost certainly much safer than tobacco but that does not mean it is safe.
Adequate research has not been done. I feel it can be useful to help you stop smoking but please don't continue it long-term. See http://wapo.St/oom8qu ; http://www.Medicalnewstoday.Com/articles/249784.Php for help stopping smoking see http://whyquit.Com/ ; http://bit.Ly/hpwz4p.

In brief: No

It doesn't have the same amount of nicotine and for many people.
It is very helpful. Glad you're tring to quit.
