    My wife and I moved into a house 3 months ago. We had to unmove our couch over a 2nd floor apartment balcony using a ladder and climbing rope, then took 2 hours to open the bay window of a 120 year old victorian using a military shovel. It was the only opening in the house that the couch would fit through. That's just a taste of the move and we still have boxes that are unpacked.

    It's best to do it like a band aid. Pick a few days that are nothing but unpacking. Get caffeine'd out and go crazy, or that's kinda what we did.

    Glad you have made the choice not to let the set back stop you. I'm sure this time will be much easier. You are already armed with much knowledge learned the first time around and realize the consequences of letting yourself down.

    One Day at a time and Best of luck!

    Hi Broodwich-welcome back

    don't beat yourself up too much, you have a great advantage most beginners do not have,
    you understand vaping and the learning curve will be qwik !

    just go thru the motions and before you know it, burning paper tobacco will be YUK

    good luck
    Ω ... you have to "Learn" how to Vape, it's not smoking... it’s,“addiction without the consequences”

    You are being FAR too hard on yourself and those 8 months aren't "down the drain". Your lungs healed a bit in that time and you can get right back on the wagon, you know it. Forgive yourself and move on.

    If you had cravings the last time, perhaps your nic level wasn't quite high enough. Maybe boost it by a couple mgs to see if that doesn't chase them away.

    The most important thing is that you refuse to beat yourself up about it. Moving absolutely SUCKS under any circumstances and if it doesn't go smoothly, well, we can all be forgiven for not being perfect saints...lol

    That just means you haven't quit YET!
    You've had a good run at it and now know what to expect from vaping.
    Continue fighting the good fight and you'll get there.
