    I never thought I would quit, 3 packs a day... nope I tried everything to quit why would this be different. I actually got my first mod because I didn't want to smoke out hunting. I bought it and used it for a couple hours. I went to go have a smoke and thought I was broken. I threw it down after two drags. I told myself I guess I'm a vaper now. I switched my wife over, same reaction. I was actually behind my dad when he went out to smoke, I will admit I was a bit sick to my stomach. Next time I go to the vape shop it is going to be clearos for everybody.

    I put the cigarette in a box of my gear a few days ago because it was taking up space and never thought about it.
    Heehee.

    The first week I quit, I had THREE half empty open packs in my car. I left them sitting on the front seat.

    I was actually recently unpacking a bag from a trip I went on the last week I was a smoker(yes, I am lazy with unpacking...lol).

    Well, guess what I found in the bag. An unopened pack of smokes. I did not throw them out, as I am thinking about framing them as they are the last pack of smokes I bought. Haha.

    I figure, I can't hide from smoking or smokers or even cigarettes. That was also always my downfall when I tried toquit previously as I would try to change my lifestyle to avoid being around smokers or cigarettes.

    Vaping though, really got that 20+ year monkey off my back as I have something I like More than smoking. I actually feel like I could be a part time smoker like those I envied before when I was a smoker. But the funny thing is, I have no desire to be a smoker, whether part time or anything anymore.

    Cigs are just...nasties now.

    I have absolutely no desire to smoke an analog ever again and I'm not even tempted around those that still smoke. That's the magic of the VP to me.

    And I don't want to look at my signature banner and think to myself, "except the one I smoked just the other day."



    Over Fifteen Thousand cigarettes NOT smoked in just 11 months. Now, that's a milestone!

    I figure if you don't have a whole one it can't count on your meter....lol It doesn't show HALF cigarettes nor does it measure in hits.

    That said, I didn't feel I could put a banner in my sig until I'd gone a full day without a cigarette.

    I'm sorry about your friend SNS.

    I've just given my little dog a tummy-rub and had a big old vape in both your and your pets honor.

    Some real neat stories here, but I'll tell ya what I noticed in the last couple days...By the way, my names Joe, I've been off almost 5 months. Smoked 38 years never missing a full day that I remember Anyway, havn't had a smoke since June 4th, the day I started vaping. No desire for a smoke the whole time. Almost...too easy I should say. Had a double hernia repaired last week, so I've been vaping my head off. You know, you've seen it, take my sister inlaw who is bypolar. Every now and then, she thinks, I don't need this stuff, I feeeel great! Then don't be followin her to close on the highway - ROAD RAGE.
    Back to me feeling pretty good. Remember, 5 months and not even an inckling desire to lite up. So, I say's to myself, don't vape this morning, wait a while. tic, tock, tic, tock...4 hours later, hear it comes, no vape for just FOUR STINKIN HOURS, big deal right. I've got 24mg juice I've been breathing in. I smoked 1.5 pad a day. I'm thinkin a smoke would be real nice right now, first time in months.

    I grabbed my 650 mah, Iclear 16 and everything lined up again. that was yesterday, so I though, come on, try it again. So I did the same today, only went 3 1/4 hrs before caving.

    The moral of this story - That smoke thing is hangin around very, very close to us. Still kind of a helpless feeling. I'll tapper down my nic intake before flying solo again

    That's where I am now. I'm still smoking a few analogs a day which is an improvement over the pack and a half I was smoking. I just started vaping a few weeks ago, and only got a kit that works consistently this week. I'm not 100% about my flavors yet. I need more variety, because I keep getting bored with what I have.

    Still, when it's great it's great. I know I'll get it working right. When I do, I'll get my banner. I have 9 packs left to sort it out, and at the reduced rate they should last as long as I need them to, or longer.

    yup...it's the darnedest (spelling, tho spell check seems ok with it) thing, I actually had to brush teeth to get taste out of my mouth, and I don't seem to recall it tasting that bad when I first started smoking!!!
    Which admittedly was at a very young age and that age you haven't developed a taste for the finer things anyway .... like I used to always drink freeze-dried coffee, that you just throw in some hot water and what not, now I don't even want to touch that stuff anymore (it does work in a pinch, but rather not).
    However, I still do like the very first drag of a freshly lit cigarette and the smell of that too (but I still have to mouthwash right after) ....what's up with that?
