RE: So done with smoking
OP - you aren't craving nicotine!  The first few days after you start vaping, you're going to have what FEEL like nic cravings, so you think it's not working and you want a cig no matter how much you vape.  What you're experiencing is your body detoxing from the OTHER 4,000 or so chemicals found in a cigarette.  Stay strong, keep vaping, and one day it'll just disappear.  For some people it takes 3 days, others 2 weeks - but it'll happen.  And when it happens, something amazing happens.  Cigarettes suddenly taste disgusting and you can't stand to be around them, much less smoke one.  You'll get there!

Remind one liberal per day, that laws affect only the law-abiding.

OMG that is exactly what i was thinking, holy crap what have i been smoking. I am vaping at the highest level i can tolerate and still i am craving something. Thank you so much for helping me not feel crazy!!! Well i am at 4 cigs for the day from 1.5 a pack a day to 4!!! i feel so happy with what i am achieving thus far and how i am progressing. I couldn't have done it without vaping!!! Thank you all for being a support system!!

RE: So done with smoking
well my bipolar kid came home, talking about how she hates life. she has proven to be suicidal in the past so when she gets like this i don't doubt what she is capable of. Now i am up to 4 to 6 cigs for the day. I am still celebrating i am far from 1.5 cigs a day.

RE: So done with smoking
Not been as successful today up to 6 cigs and it's only 630. Been a rough day. I just keep reminding myself i am coming from 1.5 pack a day habit to under 10 cigs a day. So far i haven't exceeded 6 a day in the last two days i set out on this quest. I think i am doing pretty good

RE: So done with smoking
cl, you obviously are determined to make this work for you - stick with it!

If I can make a suggestion, if at all financially possible pick up another tank or RDA or even a decent backup mod - set it up with a different e-juice - sometimes variety will help, if you're currently vaping fruits, get a tart type custard or pastry...you need to trick your taste buds and your brain....a different mod/tank with a different flavour profile may assist you in ways you hadn't thought of or considered...it's a psychological brain hack trick that works with many...

RE: So done with smoking
Just stop smoking.  Seriously - it's easier than you think.

1 - determine if small puffs or big inhales work better for you.  Picking the right style makes ALL the difference.

2 - don't use tobacco-flavored juice.  It doesn't mimic your favorite cig, it makes you want one.  Get a juice that tastes like your favorite dessert or drink or whatever - but nothing like a cigarette.

3 - Just stop smoking.  It's only really hard for a couple of days.  And after those other chemicals are out of your system, you'll be shocked how fast you can reduce your nicotine level.

You can do it.  Smile

RE: So done with smoking
honestly coming from a 1.5 pack a day 7-10 cigs is a major improvement..i am feeling withdrawals big time cutting back soo much. I feel i am making progress but maybe in increments which seems to be the best i can do right now...like i said i am feeling massive withdrawals
