Withdrawal Symptoms
As someone who quit smoking after 50+years I was expecting the worse. Well so far after taking up Vaping there hasn't been a lot of problems.

Only 6 weeks so far !

My Withdrawal Symptoms

Heavy Breathing, Now passed
Sudden urge for cigarette, Carried on vaping, but later bought more powerful box mod,, all OK again

Does it get worse ?

I Looked it up, some things they say could happen;

Headache
Nausea
Constipation or diarrhea
Fatigue, drowsiness, and insomnia
Irritability
Difficulty concentrating
Anxiety
Depressed mood
Increased hunger and caloric intake
Increased desire for the taste of sweets
Tobacco cravings

RE: Withdrawal Symptoms
Most of the above symptoms occur in the first 10 days or so, except the eating crave. But to my opinion we can take well care of that oral fixation but using calory free vapour.

RE: Withdrawal Symptoms
Most of the withdrawal symptoms listed assume quitting nicotine completely.  We avoid those by putting nic in our juice.  Since nicotine itself isn't harmful when properly dosed - you get all the benefits of quitting smoking without the hellish withdrawal symptoms.  Vaping FTMFW.

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

RE: Withdrawal Symptoms
@peter-k So your saying 10 days those can happen, so get passed that and its then all down to the nicotine crave, which would need reducing slowly.

but will vaping take over, yer its suppose to be healthier, but what happens if you no longer give the body nicotine , then you get those Symptoms? Anybody drop to zero nicotine? after all you can still vape without it and perhaps a flavor too

Oh I eat lots of sweets, but have done all my life

RE: Withdrawal Symptoms
Basically, when you quit smoking, your body isn't only missing nicotine, it's also addicted to all the thousands of carcinogenic chemicals that were in the smoke (tar). Those withdrawal symptoms are from all the chemicals and from nicotine. But if you vape, that helps because you have nicotine to help manage those symptoms. And so by the time you decide to quit vaping nicotine, you're already past most of the withdrawal symptoms because nicotine isn't as addictive as those other chemicals. 
You can quit nicotine after a while if you want, but there's no reason to. Nicotine isn't bad for you on its own, it's actually found in many vegetables like eggplant, and nicotine also isn't very addictive at all. The media likes to make up stories about how nicotine is the most addictive drug in the world, but the truth is that nicotine by itself is very similar to caffeine. It's mildly addictive, but that's all. All the tar in cigarettes is what people actually get addicted to. So yeah, you can stop vaping nicotine if you want, or don't, it really doesn't matter health-wise.

RE: Withdrawal Symptoms
Yep the nicotine is actually the overrated part of this equatation.

The last real tobacco cigarettes were taken off from the market more than a generation ago. Many don't even know anymore real tobacco cigs.

What is being sold is a mixture of treated tobacco particules, fillers and chemicals to increase the addcition. Why is the failure rate for plaster or nic tablets so high, even if the nic is sooo addictive? Because they only deliver on nic which may be for a relevant % of quitting people actually the least problem.

RE: Withdrawal Symptoms
Well I'm starting to feel changes, I use to get really high rate if for example... when driving the car, I used to get high rate if some idiot drove out in front of me, Id be cursing them for hours after. Would get a hot flush...

I no longer have this feeling, it no longer bothers me, I just carry on driving and think nothing of it..

What a great side effect ?
