At QuitNow, we always want to support you in your quitting journey. Right now, there’s a lot happening with vaping and there’s so much information floating around. We want you to know that the Government of Canada is currently investigating the severe vaping-related lung illness. While this investigation continues, we recommend holding off from using vaping products, particularly those with THC.
If you're using e-cigarettes, monitor yourself for symptoms and seek immediate care if they are present. QuitNow now offers services to help you quit or reduce vaping. For more information on services and vaping, click here: www.quitnow.ca/quitting/e-cigarettes-and-vaping

    Thank goodness for much needed information on these products and thankyou to the QuitNow team for making it available.  If something sounds to good to be true do your research before you buy into products that may harm your health and remember the forum is available for help and encouragement with quitting,  be it vaping,  e-cigarettes or regular and menthol cigarettes.  Welcome to the quitnow community .  You won't regret it.

    The QuitNow Team; yes thanks for the reminder; things are not looking good for those who are vaping; who would have thought something worse than cigarettes would come out after all of these years.

    If quitting is for losers than I am so glad I am one. Because of being a quitter my children do not have the experience of losing there father in their 20's like I did!  Losing the smell off my clothes yep I am glad to be quitter! Losing the high risk of dying from a tobacco related disease yep I am glad to be a quitter! Losing the stained fingers and early wrinkles yep I am glad to be a quitter!  I have to say being a quitter in this case I and everyone in the forum are not losers but winners!

    Hi Tina,
    using the nicotine patch is an excellent strategy to help avoid withdrawal symptoms and help with cravings, so good that you have chosen the Nicotine patch. Maybe you can spend time with your husband in non-smoking environments.
    All the best for you quit. Please reach out to the quitline at 1 877-455-2233 if you would like more support.
