So i was wondering how this would feel...you know that cigarette after a meal to help the poopshoot move a little faster. I don't know what to expect tomorrow morning. Thing is that I know for a fact i don't want cigarettes anymore... my body tried to disagree with me though.
I did one of those things that you habitually have a cigarette after. I'm not going to say which one because I would like if anyone does reply to be able to relate it to a habit they had before they started e-smoking. I've been puffing on this thing all day since about 12:20 when i finally got it all together. I went straight to dripping and I'm happy...now i just need a drip tip and a 510 usb passthrough.
I went to stretch and my hand almost went for a cigarette pack that I'm looking to give away along with half a carton. But then I remembered my eGo...and just playing with the atomizer blowing out the juice in it got my mind off the cigarette...it was more like "i want to hit this eGo". I did a tiny tad of dry burning (probably shouldn't have without cleaning first) just to help break it in and get any leftover vanilla out of it (trying new flavors..but my tastebuds still need some time i guess). I just hit that sucker a moment ago because writing this was making me want a cigarette...now i don't want a cigarette...
I LOVE MY ELECTRONIC CIGARETTE. I was smoking as the mail lady showed up at my house at 11:45. it's now 4:45 EST and i have NOT had a cigarette.
I'm 28 years old. My first cigarette was handed to me by two beautiful asian teenage girls (as some of you may have read in the new members forum) at the age of 8 years old..yes let me spell it out for you e-i-g-h-t. My habit developed more and more over the years and by the time i was 15-16 i was getting near pack a day...by the time i was 18 i was smoking near two packs a day..by yesterday i had lost count how many cigarettes i was smoking in a given day...losing half packs here and there and always having a carton to go to when i chose. I'd say i was smoking a little under 2 packs a day...but sometimes i would have intense chain smoking sessions despite the pain i felt in my lungs the following day. In the last 2 weeks i've woke up coughing for about 30 minutes about every other morning, sometimes in the middle of the night...then be fine the rest of the day. Needless to say I was tired of smoking. Tired of my lungs hurting.
I've been vaping for 5 hours...and the pain in my lungs is gone..i'm sure i'll wake up coughing here for who knows how long because MY LUNGS WILL BE HEALING. i'll actually be able to get rid of this gunk. And I hate to be graphic, or turn anyones stomach - but even hocking up a loogie is slightly easier than it was this morning when i woke up. Meaning it's going to get easier with time for me.
5 hours...20 year smoker...no cigarettes...no cravings...and i just took the deepest breath i possibly could without coughing.
Thank you for these forums as while i've been waiting for my e-cig in the mail there has been alot of encouragement. The people here have been extremely nice and helpful. I love all of you guys. These forums helped me find what I needed and I've never been more excited about anything in my life.
I'll update this thread in a weeks time hopefully telling you I've not touched another cigarette.
Much love e-smokers <3
