    Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. If I am just sitting around watching TV at night (like I am now) I vape a lot. Not so much when I was smoking, because I smoked outside, so it wasn't as convenient. I noticed this evening though, that I don't have that "need to smoke/vape" feeling I always had when I was smoking.

    I definitely do as well. Largely because, as grad said, its more convenient. I can vape in places where I was not able to smoke. Plus I enjoy vaping way more than smoking....at the end I didn't even enjoy smoking at all, I just did it because of the addiction.

    yes. but i also learned that i could because a 15ml bottle can last me a week so it's definitely cheaper so i don't feel guilty

    Yes and no. Sometimes I'll work an entire 8 hour shift and not vape once...but then at home after dinner it's pretty much non-stop.

    Yeah, it's common. Most of us do it. I keep my vape on my nightstand so I can have a few vapes before jumping in the shower in the morning. I just tell myself it's better than smoking. It must be, I do feel better and I am in good health. Good luck. Maybe I'll cut back someday, but for now it's not happening.

    It's natural to vape a lot more than smoke, especially at first.

    * There's less sensation to vaping (taste, throat feel, etc.), so people tend to overdo it at first.
    * The nicotine alone doesn't feel like the chemical cocktail of a cigarette, so people try to overcompensate by vaping till they feel a nicotine buzz.
    * Without having to step outside or take a break for a smoke, people vape more than they mean to because there's nothing obvious stopping them.

    Some simple "fixes":

    * Get stronger juice that leaves you satisfied faster. You'll start vaping less as you feel like you can go longer in between vaping.
    * Put your vaporizer away when you're not using it, and focus on using it in little "sessions" like you would a cigarette. Partitioning your vaping into groups will make it more apparent to yourself how much you're doing it, and you'll naturally cut back.
    * Get weaker juice and just enjoy it!
    * Measure out juice for each day for a week, and force yourself to use less. If you purposely vape more and more each day, you'll crave more and more each day. That works just as well in reverse. Force yourself for a week and you'll naturally want less afterwards.

    If you're anything like me, it'll go like this: you'll get the strongest juice you can to make getting off cigarettes as easy as possible. Then a month later you'll notice you're vaping like crazy and the nicotine is affecting your sleep. It'll be easy to cut back now, because now that you're off cigarettes you don't have that to mentally compare it to. Now I'm down to juice half as strong as I started with, and I finally vape as much as I want without feeling it the next day. I wouldn't have wanted to do that from the start because I would have been craving cigarettes at first too much.

    If u mean more as in puff vs puff, then yes this is normal as your taking in way less nic per puff.

    IMHO I still consider I'm taking in way less nic. So I Vape only when my eyes are open.

    I absolutely vape more than I smoked. I was never big on smoking indoors, and about seven years ago when I bought a new truck I decided not to smoke in it, then got a new car and did the same thing and eventually sold off my smoking trucks, and I didn't want to smoke at work (having two jobs as a real estate broker and a writer, you don't want to offend a client or source and some people are really touchy about smoke smell). But now I can vape on my way to work in the morning, sneak a puff or two here or there during the day, and chain-vape at night when I'm writing tomorrow's news just like I used to chain smoke - I only used to smoke 12-15 cigs a day but 10 of them were in one three-hour late night work window.

    I'm not going to let myself worry about it, I have a bunch of 18 and 12 juices and switch to the weaker stuff at night...if I could find a 6 strength juice with any kind of decent throat hit I'd probably cut the nic back even more and just enjoy the vape.

    $2130 deep in vape toys and now an interweb shopping addict...so close to saving money!
