    Good morning! I'm new to this forum. Just purchased an e-cig setup last Tuesday, and I haven't even had an urge to smoke a cigarette since. It's been over a week! This is the longest time (outside of pregnancy) that I've been able to stop smoking cigarettes. Is it this easy? Am I done with them? This is the best thing ever!!
    I've been aware that I need to stop smoking, but I didn't even plan on quitting. What happened was on NYE, it was very, very cold. Like negative wind chill cold, but I still went outside to smoke all night. When I came back inside one time, I heard a friend comment about how terrible it smelled when people smoked in the cold, like it stuck to them. She wasn't necessarily talking about me, but I felt a tinge of shame knowing it was probably me. I couldn't smell a thing. I realized I haven't been able to smell anything in about two decades. I'm also the last of our friend group who still smoked cigarettes.
    I'm so happy I made the decision to go check out what vaping is all about, even it was driven by unintended peer pressure and upon impulse. I love using my Aspire Pocketx. Fill it and fire it. That's all. Nothing fancy. Incredible tasting liquids. Super easy peasy! The gym is getting easier and I think my sense of smell is coming back after just a week!

    Congrats on "accidentally" switching to vaping, and yes you are lucky some people do indeed find it that easy and quit on their first puff of an e-cig. That was not my experience, but I feel lucky to have transitioned to vaping fully at last.

    Congrats, and welcome to ECF. No reason to think it will be harder as you progress, it will probably be easier. Glad you are liking your setup, and welcome.

    Congratulations and welcome! Yes, it's really this easy. 6 years and counting. Find what works for you and get a few backups. These devices break sometimes. You don't want to undo all the good you've done due to an equipment failure.

    It was almost 5 years ago my wife and I saw someone smoking this silver tube thingy in a parking lot at the harley store then we asked some questions. Thinking back if we never stopped to look at the bikes that day we'd still be smoking. Next day my wife showed up with 2 ego kits and the rest is history.

    Thanks for the welcome! I'm super happy to be here!! Great advice about a backup device. I'm going to stop in my shop and pick another one up today. It was like $40 without the extra pieces and liquid. My initial purchase was around $90. I used to (that's so awesome to type!! lol!!) smoke American Spirits, so vaping will pay for itself in under two weeks!!

    We well overpaid for those 2 ego kits, think they were $150US each but they included 30mls of juice....lolol and the clearos had replaceable heads that started me into rebuilding. Without including the prices of gear that I've bought, with rebuilding the coils and DIY juices my wife and I can vape for less than 20 bucks a month. Its the nicotine thats expensive in Canada, going rate is @150CAD delivered and taxes for a liter of 100mg nic or it be less than 10 a month.

    Yes, it can be that easy! It took me a month of dual use and very high nicotine to drop the cigarettes, but that was over 5 years ago now and I've never looked back!

    I had a similar experience -- shockingly easy due to the evolution of e-cigarettes. Good that you have a back up -- it becomes too easy to blame the equipment. I always have two batteries in use, and a new one ready to replace if one stops charging. Congratulations!

    It was that easy for me as well. I dropped it and picked up vaping over 4 yrs ago and have never looked back. I did take one drag off of a cigarette about a year ago just to prove to myself why I left it. All it took was that one disgusting drag and that will never happen again.

    Welcome to ecf. Congrats....I am so happy you joined us. ECF has the best support and members from all over the world. You will always have members to help find answers to your questions, joke around, or be there if/when you want to rant about something. LOL

    I do advise you to drink a little more liquids throughout the day/night. This helps to make vaping a much more pleasurable experience plus helps to flush out all of the toxins those stinkies put into your body. Since vaping does dry out the mucous membranes in our mouths, nose and throat, more drinking of your favorite beverage helps to keep you on balance.

    American Spirits make it easier, less additional chemicals for you to transition away from. I did a similar thing, went to organic tobacco, then vape, and it was easy as pie. Congrats!
