    I've quit smoke, quite successfully, using Chantix a couple of years back. I felt good to do it and felt ashamed when I picked up that first cigarette but DAMN it felt soooo good. And I think that's what we're all striving for. That feeling ... that rush when we smoke that first cigarette after not having one for a while. A feeling we just don't get from vaping. Now mind you, I'm taking the baby steps too. I've went a couple of days to see if I could do it and it seemed to work out. My atomizers are a bit weak and waiting for replacements so I'm toking on the woods for now, but during work, I'll vape. So, along with a lot of you, I'll smoke in the morning and in the evening. 4 to 5 cigarettes a day - from 20 - I still consider that a win.

    I'd love to be able to just buy the 0mg flavoring and just enjoy vaping one day. .... one day ...

    I just ordered some WTA from Aroma. Should be here in a day or 2. I kept reading that people having trouble giving up the analogs had great success adding WTA so I thought I'd give it a try. Here's hoping this will do it!

    Welcome areinike, I'm not sure either about the WTA. It's some kind of Juice I guess that's made from (I think) wet tobacco leaves & must be strong or something. I'm sure if you type it into the search line up top you'll be able to find lots of info if nobody in here responds - although I'm sure someone will

    Whole Tobacco Alkinoids present In Tobacco but not nicotine used in juice. Many find the WTA gives greater satisfaction than just nic alone.

    WTA (whole tobacco alkaloids) is a special extraction technique that pulls in more of the alkaloids from tobacco, not just nicotine. See Aroma Ejuice

    The alkaloids not only give a more satisfying experience, they do so for many smokers/vapers due to their anti-depressant nature. Apparently some smokers lack the ability to regulate dopamine in the brain, and the alkaloids help do that. I don't know if it's a chicken/egg thing (that we self medicate to address the inability to regulate, or if smoking over time affects the ability to do so). So there IS a physiological component to the theory that having these in the juice helps with giving the relaxed, comforting feeling that nic-only juice doesn't.

    Very informative, thank you I believe a lot of us have "self-medicated" with cigs.

    Hey guys, new game plan here. I think I told you dh brought me two packs of cigs a while ago, one was a misty menthol 120 ... I've been taking a couple of drags here & there then droppin' it in the snuffer ... man, that third or fourth time is nassstyyy!

    I purchased some WTA, and let me just say, this stuff is more potent than regular juice. It does keep me from vaping non stop. I have not smoked anymore, but the urge is still there. I just drop a few drops of the Wta in my carto and vape away the urge. It has helped me to not fall off the wagon again (so far). I will definitely keep using it. Stress and sadness are my triggers. I miss my son every day (he committed suicide in January), and sometimes it hits me harder than others. I don't feel like smoking most of the time, but occasionally the urge can be pretty overwhelming. I'll get through this. Hopefully smoke free.
