    I used my E cig when me and my husband were trying to conceive it really helped me cut down and when I found out it was pregnant it was a lot easier to stop altogether :D x

    Welldone for making the change!

    I stopped smoking in October after 17 years of smoking and untold numbers of attempts to stop. I used nicotine replacement mostly during my last pregnancy although I did slip up a few times so although getting pregnant is a great trigger for some people to stop, it certainly doesn;t work for everyone.

    I am however evangelical about the method I used to stop. 'Alan Carr's easy was to stop smoking' costs around £5 on Amazon (less than a packet of ciggies or a replacement canister for the e-cig). A mate at work went on about it for a year, I read the book to shut him up. Have not smoked since. Don;t even have cravings for it.

    It uses a mix of obvious facts and NLP (neuro-linguistinc progamming) to give you all the tools you need to stop smoking. For example 'managed to cut the down' implies a sacrifice, as does quitting or giving up.

    I am the last person to judge, as I said, I slipped up more than a few times in my last pregnancy and more by luck than judgement maybe, no harm was done. However I do also know that there is a lot of pressure on pregnant women to stiop smoking and that pressure in itself can be stressful and used as an excuse to carry on - I was nagged for years to stop before I did and it just made me more stubborn that I was going to carry on!

    I was using a vapour cig from jan to cut down and quit fags altogether when I got my bfp. Ive since quit the vapour cig too and despite having smoked twenty a day for ten years, ivw only had two hiccups (about three drags each time so not even totalled half a cig :))

    Well done you, they were a huge help for me and id have struggled without it x

    I couldn't get on with the ecigs at all! I smoked for 10 years and was up over 25 a day. Had my stop smoking appointment on the 18th March; the day of the BFP! I stopped completely using mini lozenges for about a week and nothing since. Surprising what a little life inside you can do! I never would have quit before
