I have been vaping now regularly for 3 1/2 weeks. I have markedly reduced my cigarette intake. I was smoking 20+ cigarettes per day.
On my worst day since starting to vape I have had perhaps 6 cigarettes. On better days it has been three.
I am aware that there are some physical aspects that can occur when a person quits smoking. I am wondering if this can occur, in anyone's experience, from reducing the amount of cigarettes as much as I have.
The specific thing that I am experiencing is my tongue has become very sore in the past 2 days. I've read this can occur when a person quits smoking. I am also having incredible amounts of insomnia for the past 5 days. In fact, I never fell asleep last night even though I am very tired.
I am not too concerned just yet because in the last few hours it seems the tongue is starting to feel better already. If it starts getting bad again I will see a doctor but it does feel like something to do with cigarettes.
As more information: I am vaping a 60/40 mix of 24mg nicotine (Desert Ship flavor). I started the 24mg last Friday because the original 18mg I was using didn't really handle my nicotine cravings.
So, I am just curious if anyone has had any similar experience when they cut down their amount of smoking vs quitting it altogether. I plan to be done with smoking completely by the end of this week.
