    Reads like an infomercial for cigs. Anon has the right idea, quitting altogether is way better than trading one bad habit for another. But you will pay the price for your addiction no matter what. Been there done that. Patch and gum worked for me.

    Chantix is also an option. And it won’t blow up in your hand or in your mouth like a vape or ecig. Yes it can be expensive especially without insurance but there are programs and doctors who offer help in paying for the cost. I actually got some on Saturday and through the Drs program the cost went from $369 to $56. I’ve set a quit date of March 11th and I hope to make it
