    For me, the change was instant.

    I have completely stopped smoking analogs after using vaping to help cut the number down. My wife has cut down to 1-3 smokes a day, we both used to smoke over a half a pack a day before we started vaping. I love the fact that I can vape ALOT which keeps me calm(I have adhd and am bipolar) and not worry about killing my pets, ruining my house and alienating people around me because I stink.

    After 30 years of smoking anywhere from 1 to 3 packs a day (before I quit, about 1 1/2 packs a day, give or take) I had about a 12 hour transition where I smoked my last few cigarettes while vaping.

    Since then, I haven't had a single cigarette.

    Been vaping for a few years now, did a couple month transition at the start. While I do not smoke cigarettes regularly, I still get really fiending for them, like being wound up or stressed heavily. I have been using snus when I think I am going to hunt down a cig. Or using the snus like a patch. Vaping is no magic bullet, but I am feeling completely different than when I smoked. Just ordered some WTA, hoping that will help.

    I did not know this poll was here. Promise to bump on occasion.

    Whatever my signature thingy says down there? That's the truth - and I intend to keep it that way.

    These results should be shown to anyone who thinks vaping needs regulating (or worse)!

    Haven't smoked in a month after 14 years of varying numbers of cigarettes per day (8-30). Most time I managed to stop before was a couple of weeks tops before going crazy. I can honestly say this time, I haven't been even slightly tempted. The very thought of smoking turns my stomach and the smell really burns my nose.

    I cycle to work every day (2.5 miles each way) and before quitting it was taking me 13-15 minutes to get to work, being out of breath normally. Now I can easily do it in 9-10 mins with plenty of energy left. Lung capacity feels greater, my skin looks better, and I don't have to mooch off outside to smoke now!

    The smell was a big thing for me too. I was very self conscious of how much I smelled of smoke when around non smokers. The worst was getting through 30-40 cigarettes through the day during a night out. I've never had a hangover from drinking, but my body felt terrible after that many the morning after. Then I would go outside in the morning and start again!

    After how good vaping has been for me, I feel so stupid for ever having smoked in the first place.
