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 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."
Well over Twenty Thousand cigarettes NOT smoked and over $6000.00 savings in just 18 months. There's your 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.

I'm sorry about your friend SNS.

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
Oh yah, I still have the same 3 1/2 packs of cigs I quit with. Because of those stinkin politicians and such, I hate to let em go just yet.
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.

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?
Keep up the good vape!
