"If you are a smoker, and especially a smoker who hasn't tried vaping, read this book, and try it now"
Emeritus Professor John Britton. Former Chair, Tobacco Advisory Group, Royal College of Physicians (UK)
If you are a smoker who can't quit, this book could literally save your life. Vaping nicotine is the world's most popular and most effective quitting aid. However, it is controversial and poorly understood.
Dr Mendelsohn outlines the scientific evidence in simple terms so you can make an informed decision about whether it could work for you.
Is it really safer than smoking? Does vaping cause 'popcorn lung'? Does nicotine cause cancer? Is vaping cheaper than smoking? Is it really a serious threat to young people? Is it another ploy by the tobacco industry to get more people smoking?
The book guides you through the maze of getting started. What is mouth-to-lung vaping? Which devices are most suitable for beginners? How much nicotine do you need? What are nicotine salts? How do you actually vape and when should you stop?
