Are You A Quitter?


I am not a fan of those disposable types you find in Walmart or your local gas station. They weren't even close to effective for me and they were quite expensive. They are fine for an hour or so in an "emergency" but not long term.

As far as nicotine in the e-liquids, they have options on the level of nicotine provided. Over time, many choose to slowly reduce the level of nicotine until they reach zero.

Many towns (even small ones) have a local store now that carries these products.

Look up vaping and your town name in Google to see if you have a place nearby.

I want to mention again, for those who are able to quit by other means such as cold turkey, patches, gum, medications, etc, you should do so. IMHO vaping is for those who have tried every other means of quitting first and have not been successful.

For me, now, I just like to blow smoke (steam, vapor, whatever you want to call it, etc.). I like the feeling. I can put it down any time I want, and don't have the "must have it now!" urge like with actual cigarettes.

With high nicotine liquid, I can turn the voltage down low. With zero nicotine liquid, I can turn the voltage up a bit and still get that same feeling in the back of the throat.

Is that because you're puffing less or does vaping just cost that much less per puff?

Maybe we need a new thread. Are you almost a quitter?

Once the initial investment is made for the equipment, the e-liquids tend to be quite a bit less expensive than buying cigarettes.

For me the savings was pretty substantial because I was a pretty heavy smoker and I smoked name brand cigarettes. Even though I am very particular about the e-liquids I buy (I only buy high quality products that I know every ingredient and from local suppliers.) it still comes out to less than 25% of what I spent smoking.

More importantly, I feel 100% better and my blood pressure has returned to normal for the first time in many years.

I also love that I no longer smell like smoke.

I used to smoke almost a pack a day of Marlboros 2yrs ago. Don't know what they cost now.

The bottle of the e-liquid costs me $17.00, and lasts me 1.5-2 weeks.

I don't quit, I just procrastinate.

I rolled the dice and bought a starter kit three weeks ago. In addition I also decided to quit drinking. I haven't been able to accomplish anything this entire time but there have been no homicides so I guess it is working.

the third time I quit I had locked my keys in a house. Done it may times before, real simple, just slide through a side window. About half way through I realized someone came by an made the window much smaller. Sometime before the 8th time i quit I was run over by a car on my bike. Once I was able to walk the cops would not let me go. I refused medical treatment. So they agreed they would take me to my chiropractor as a last resort. So I showed up to the doc with the cops in tow. He talks to them, says something about x rays, so cops leave. Make a long story short he presses on my neck about 15 times and said okay all better. Tells me I will never smoke again. I thought he was kidding. That was 15 years ago and I have never smoked since.

I started at about age 14, tried quitting several times and succeeded for as long as 2 years at a clip before starting again. This went on for maybe 12 years. The thing that finally allowed me to quit for good was when I met my wife, a non-smoker and started a family. I attribute my success to the entire lifestyle change. I wasn't in singles bars where I would find myself bored and borrowing cigarettes of my smoking friends and I wasn't in the Army where I also found myself surrounded by smokers. It helped that we couldn't afford cigarettes in our early year even if we did smoke. However, if my wife was a smoker, I probably would have gone back to it.
