Health Experts Praise Intellicig Electronic Cigarette

A smoking alternative has been suggested to those wanting to quit smoking and have a healthier lifestyle by health experts from Avon Obesity Service.

(PRWEB) August 19, 2009 -- A smoking alternative has been suggested to those wanting to quit smoking and have a healthier lifestyle.

Patients have been introduced to the Intellicig electronic cigarettes at Avon Obesity Service (AOS) as a possible tool of choice to use in their battle to quit smoking.

Intellicig has a mix of just four ingredients ethyl maltol, glycerol, deionised water and nicotine and is the first re-chargeable electronic cigarette to be manufactured in the UK.

Intellicig contains no carbon monoxide, tobacco, tar or any of the other 4,800 chemicals found in a typical cigarette, making it safer and more pleasant for the smoker and everyone around them.

Praising the electronic device, Sharon Bates, Bariatric Nurse Specialist at AOS said that the Intellicig has helped a number of her patients cut down their cigarette intake.

Sharon said: "When patients taste success in their weight loss they then want to squash other areas of their lives they are not happy with - often this includes their smoking habit."

"Introducing significant personal life changes relating to food and eating can be very challenging. However, some patients are determined not only to reduce their size but to reduce (or stop) smoking too."

"Patients use Intellicig as a means of helping them stop smoking alongside surgery as a method of weight loss," said Sharon.

"Quitting isn't easy at the best of times. Intellicig allows the individual to wean themselves slowly off smoking, allowing them to take control of both smoking and eating behaviours."

AOS fully supports the National Campaign to get people more active and lead healthier lifestyles and replacing conventional cigarettes with Intellicig is a good start.

Sharon added: "Intellicig has positively contributed and supported some of my patients in their drive to stop smoking."

"It's early days but the response has been very positive; one patient who was smoking over 30 'conventional' cigarettes a day now only smokes the Intellicig."

"Another patient completely gave up smoking in four weeks and particularly enjoyed smoking the Intellicig indoors whilst fellow smokers trekked outside the hospital in their nighties on a wet and windy day."

Health Professionals are only too aware of possible smoking linked medical complications. There is always interest, in all medical specialities, for suitable practical support for those addicted to smoking. Having surgery or other medical treatment is an anxious time without any additional anxieties.

Intellicig can currently be purchased online direct at and at selected retail outlets.

Located in Bristol's Spire Hospital, AOS specialise in the assessment, operation and post-operative support of people undergoing obesity surgery to assist their weight loss. For further information please visit
