Real Life Stories’

E-cigarettes in pregnancy - North East Lincolnshire

Smoke-free when initial contact made after referral from the Midwife. Felt ok but missing the hand to mouth association from smoking. E-cigarette obtained and zero nicotine liquid used. Minimal use of the E-cigarette but was able to overcome the hand to mouth barrier. Continues to be smoke-free but no longer feels the need to use E-cigarette.

Great service from E-cigarette Outlet shop. Gave good information, demonstrated how to use, clean and fill with liquids. Very satisfied with the service. Found the E-cigarette fantastic. Has enabled a reduction in number of cigarettes smoked from 20 plus per day to 3 or 4 per day. Confident will become smoke free in very near future.
