2 days no analog!
Hey there me again just over 2 days without touching a cig now! Iv been vaping my butt off its been really hatd I cant stop thinking about burning cig I fight it but it happens Iv been a smoker for over 25yrs its sick I cant wait to say ots been a month or six months since I quit I want to get there I have to get there I ordered more juices a tank and couple more attys tonight
Thats awesome, keep it up. Not gonna lie, had those strong urges too and still sometimes do and I started vaping 3 years ago. Even if you break down and have a real cig, guarantee you will have one puff and throw it away because your not going to like it now that you can taste what they really taste like. Thats what happened for me. Stay strong!!
It does get easier, don't beat yourself up over it.
I wouldn't tell you to smoke, but I know a few
people that went from 1-3 packs a day down to
1-3 cigs a day. Everyone at a pace that's comfortable for them. We all know
What it feels like.
Congrats, we're in the same boat Been vaping my butt off too! I don't really have urges, but every once in awhile I feel like I'm "forgetting" to do something when I do the things that I previously associated with smoking. Taking out the trash, coffee in the morning, etc. My old butts are still in ashtray outside, when I pass them by they smell revolting now which makes me smile.
Don't know if you're male or female, but in addition to getting my ego kit I also got perfume and L'Occitane lotion in lavender and cherry scents. Smelling good is a great motivator haha! Good idea for guys too imo. Though in hindsight I probably shoulda just blown it all on a Provari!
Keep up the fight man! Let me tell you the "one" thread I will answer is the one that's looking for motivation those first days. You know what, smoke an analog a day, smoke one in 5, tell me how good it tastes. Realize it tastes so good because your tongue is healthy now, you can smell better. Realize how awesome these juices taste, or for the first time in years how the "day" how the"weather" smells. It only gets easier my friend.. vape on!
RIP MegaMan, I hate you Crapcom!
congrats keep up the good work!
Congratulations on your achievements, and keep it up!
No really, one of the best advices I've seen here is to make the change a positive experience for your brain and body. Basically, you need to adjust, you have not won until you rather pick up your PV over your coal sticks, even unconsciously.
So what you really need to do is: if you DEFINITELY need an analog, go and grab it, but keep on vaping, most people get over analogs in less than a month and some in under a week, maybe even immediately.
When I was starting to vape, I made sure to always have at least 2 cancer sticks around the house, and once every couple of days I used one, then went to buy a single (they don't sell singles here anymore due to latest regulation), this, I noticed created a negative (i'm too lazy) experience when I wanted an analog, and using this method my brain realized it was better to stick what I had handy. Regular cigs forgotten in 2 weeks, and the 2 analogs remained in my drawer for over 3 months as an old medievil virgin, untouched, and undesired...
Worked for me, but I know I can be crazy sometimes. It might be easier for you, try your hardest, if you can't, use my method, if still not there, try again
I hope your 2 days become a lifetime, enjoy your vapor
Hang in there. As a 30 year smoker on day 8 analog free it really does get better. You will find yourself reaching for your vape instead of your lighter and pack. Then comes your next problems working on getting backups so you don't have to worry about losing vaping, figuring out which is the best (perfect) e-juice to get and deciding what is the next vaping set-up that you need to improve your experience. It's not the destination, but the journey.
For the love of God, Relax!!

Fighting with yourself only stresses you, and you do seem stressed.
When you surrender, there is a peace that comes with it. When you find it, You will Know.
