Change from standard to electric cigarettes
I had a XC race last Sunday which I had problems with breathing in, was constantly out of breath. Due to this I made a decision to switch from real to electric cigarettes in order to hopefully help with that
Has anybody done this also with any success? No need for the 'why not just quit' comments, I struggle going cold turkey so hopefully this is a stepping stone which makes it easier to quit down the line
If we are to believe what is said, then electronic cigs are less unhealthy than smoking. End of thread.
As the question I asked hasn't been answered I hardly think it is end of thread, I asked if anyone from experience has found breathing easier as a result of it, not if we believe what is said
Why don't you try quiting now rather than "down the line"?
I've tried several times and found it very difficult so I've set a time when I want to try and quit properly. Just wanted to know how much of a difference people have found there to be between the real and electric cigarette with regards to ease of breathing while running.
Okay, then. I tried electronic cigarettes instead of real ones. After a while I felt much better and ran a bit faster.
Was the name A N Other already taken?
No idea what the bottom comment is referring too, probably a joke I don't understand but thank you for answering.
It's a bit like checking into a hotel as Mr and Mrs Smith. Flip to the front page of the phone directory. Ahh A Brown. That's who I will be.
This last race was ridiculous, within 3 minutes of plodding along at the start I was gasping for air. Running is meant to be fun, if it is that much of a struggle clearly something is going wrong. That's really why I thought it was time to make the change
I have been told this is what I am called, perhaps my parents have lied to me all these long years, who knows
I must say it is fairly rare to meet a smoker who runs. As Cinders says, don't. But you don't want to hear that do you Mr A Aardvark?
Starting running again was an attempt to slowly kick the bad habits one by one, plus I enjoyed it in school. And I have heard it many a time before so it is nothing new haha
Stay tuned for Dr Grinch's next free medical health seminar, Depression: cheer up and snap out of it.
You forgot about the slap round the face. Your fault Phil, I'm still depressed after listening to the Low!!
Congrats on taking the first step. I'm now 2 years and 4 months smoke free and feeling good. I didn't try the electric ones but used patches and tic tacs and quit cold turkey. Haven't looked back! Keep at the electric ones and you never know someday soon you might just quit them.
After 3 minutes of a pace that isn't particularly quick? I saw quite a few actually. At the end of the race, well that's a different matter entirely!
