What are electronic cigarettes (e-cigs) and how do they work?

E-cigarettes (also sometimes known as vaporizer cigarettes) are devices that give out doses of vaporized nicotine that you then inhale.

They usually have a re-chargeable battery, an atomiser and a cartridge of liquid. When you puff on your e-cig as you would an ordinary cigarette, the battery powers the device to heat the liquid and vaporize it. So what you are inhaling is vapour, not smoke.

I am using champix and it is making me feel nauseous

If you are feeling nausea it is often a good idea to try taking your tablet after food. Often this seems to help to settle the stomach. 

If it continues you could consider dropping to the lower dosage of 0.5mg twice a day and see if this helps. Speak to your advisor or GP to get more advice.

Many families enjoy chewing tobacco in paan at home. You don’t need to spoil this tradition by stopping the ritual altogether – try chewing paan without the tobacco in it. This is much safer and you won’t be putting yourself or your family at risk.
