Hi Hon
Firstly congrats on giving up. I can't answer wether smoking an electronic cig will affect egg quality but what I done when I gave up (for the same reason as you) was to use an electronic cig without an empty cartridge. Ok you can't puff smoke out, but it is all mind over matter and just having it in my hand, putting it to my lips and blowing out nothing seemed to help. Nicotine is the addictive part so personally I would stay away from it, mainly because it will just take that one timevto feed the addiction and youl be back to a smoker. However at the end of the day a couple of puffs on an electronic cig has got to be better than patches and even better than a cig. Xx
