Tom Davis with the Findlay and Hancock County Health Department talked to us about a new way of delivering nicotine. The e-cigarette has been touted as a safe alternative to smoking..
Davis mentioned that even though e-cigarettes do not carry the 400 different carcinogens regular cigarettes do, it’s not something that is recommended especially for young people.
Days like No Tobacco Day or the Great American Smokeout should be used as an opportunity to kick the habit for good but you must have a plan..
Davis said that you also must be armed with a plan if you encounter a smoking trigger. An example might be if you always smoked after a meal, have a plan to take a walk around the block instead.
