    So I have been a vaper for over 8 months now, but have never been able to go a entire day without a analogue usually many more than one. Prior to vapeing I was a 2 PAD smoker. While it has been a long time coming but I just successfully completed my first week of being analogue free. I feel pretty awesome about it. It has been a very long road for me and I feel like I can finally do this full time. Just wanted to share my journey for the others that can't yet beat the analogues. Give it time and it will happen.

    Hey congrats brinks!! Good job. The first week is always the hardest, or so they say! You made it a week, and the second week should be easier for you. Feel good buddy, you've done yourself a huge favor!

    So true I started smoking at 11 years old and have tried every other option. If I hadn't found this community it most definitly would have killed me directly or indirectly. In my career physical fitness is a top priority and for me running has always been out of the question which poses a significant risk.

    Great job Brinks keep it going. When I started vaping I also kept having a few smokes here and there. In January of 2011 (not sure of the exact day) I forgot to have a smoke and have not looked back since.

    Hey Brinks, nice going! I've been vaping for a few weeks now and been analogue free for the last week. Used up my last couple of packs and I doubt I will buy any more. I hardly ever get a craving lately that a good vaping will not cure, which is nice because the cigs were getting really rough on me.

    I remember my first day as well. March 11 this year. Since then I haven't missed smoking except for one day when under big stress. The next day my Stardust and Boges arrived and I would have been fine with them if I had them the day before.

    I've had a smoke now and then since the 11th, but I haven't NEEDED one. It was a choice and I could have gone without if I wanted to. It's nice when the need is gone. I too wondered if it would ever happen. It does!
