Electronic cigarettes (e cigarettes) are battery operated products designed to turn nicotine and other chemicals into a vapor. You then inhale the vapor. These products are often made to look like

  • Cigarettes
  • Cigars
  • Pipes
  • Pens

E Cigarettes may contain ingredients that are known to be toxic to humans. Because clinical studies about the safety of e cigarettes have not been submitted to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), you have no way of knowing

  • If they are safe
  • Which chemicals they contain
  • How much nicotine you are inhaling

Nicotine is a highly addictive substance. Additionally, these products may be attractive to kids. Using e cigarettes may lead kids to try other tobacco products including conventional cigarettes which are known to cause disease and lead to premature death.

With e cigarettes there are many unknowns, including the unknown health effects of long term use. Currently, there are no e cigarettes approved by FDA for therapeutic uses so they cannot be recommended as a cessation aid. For smokers who want to quit cigarettes there are FDA approved treatments which have been proved to be safe and to work, including

  • Nicotine gum
  • Nicotine skin patches
  • Nicotine lozenges
  • Nicotine oral inhaled products
  • Nicotine nasal spray
  • Zyban
  • Chantix
