So, I have been off the stinkies for a little over 5 weeks now.
Tonight I was out at a bar hanging with some friends. 1 who is a smoker and another who I mostly converted.
My 1 buddy was smoking and my other buddy who had not had a smoke in 2 weeks asked to bum one as he wanted to see what it was like again. he had a few drags and was like "I think that is enough for me".
So...me, watching this was like, "what the hell, let me try." Now, I kinda knew what to expect, as when I was weening myself off smokes, they started to taste nasty, but one thing that I like about e-cigs is I have no fear of cigarettes anymore. I know I have something in vaping that I like.
1st drag in 5 weeks. OH MY GOD!!! How did I smoke for 22 years?? like half a drag, and I was gagging. Disgusting. I had to order a vodka-cran and basically gargle with it to get the taste out of my mouth. That 1/2 a drag was more than I wanted.
It actually made me feel ill.
Needless to say, the rest of the night tonight, I was vaping, even while there were smokers all around me(there are still smoking bars in Florida, and we were at one). The smell doesnt bother me at all, but oh my, the taste of an actual cigarette is disgusting. So have you tried one lately? Was it the same for you?
Most importantly, the having no fear of cigarettes or of falling back into them anymore is really really nice. The first time I have quit smoking that I dont want nor fear becoming a smoker again.
