Now that more and more people are choosing to give up smoking and not using the traditional Nicotine replacement therapy, some are changing the cigarettes to e-cigarettes. E-cigarettes are battery-operated devices designed to deliver nicotine with flavourings and other chemicals to users in a vapour. They come in all different shapes, sizes and colours. Some look like a cigarette and others look like a high tech gadget.

As these products are still relatively new on the market there is no solid evidence or testing that has been done to say that these are a safe replacement for traditional cigarettes and indeed, whether they do actually work to help the user give up smoking.
