What about E-Cigarettes without Nicotine?
What’s interesting to note is that e-cigarettes without any nicotine content can also help minimize withdrawal symptoms and cravings, although at a slightly lower level in comparison to variants that come with nicotine. This suggests that the way e-cigarettes are used, resembling the physical act of smoking a cigarette, has an impact on the user’s mind, and simply going through the act of smoking an e-cigarette can help alleviate withdrawal symptoms. In fact, tests have shown that using an e-cigarette is perceived as being more satisfying in comparison to using a nicotine inhaler.

A common pattern noticed in users of e-cigarettes with and without nicotine, at varying levels, is that their use can lead to reduction in cravings, irritability, mood swings, anxiousness, restlessness, nervousness, impatience, and insomnia, and they can also help deal with difficulty in concentration and sleeping.
