E-cigarettes increase your nicotine addiction

DO YOU smoke e-cigarettes to help beat your addiction to cigarettes?

Well a new Harvard School of Public Health study says you're shooting yourself in the foot because e-cigs make you more dependant on nicotine.

Pyrazine additives in low tar and e-cigarettes may be reinforcing the addictive qualities of nicotine, and should be strictly regulated, concludes research published in the journal Tobacco Control.

Evidence suggests pyrazines have sensory and pharmacological effects which act independently of, and in tandem with, nicotine.

The tobacco industry developed pyrazine to make low tar ('light') cigarettes taste richer and smoother.
