    Howdie Ya'll! I joined up about a week ago and just worked up the nerve to post. I'm 47 days tobacco free after 20+ years smoking. I currently reside in the lone star state. I have really enjoyed reading through the threads and was amazed with the pictures of the vape set ups some of the members are using. I've never felt like such a newb before.

    Yeah. I am so glad I gave vaping a try. I had just about given up hope on ever getting rid of that nasty habit. The first couple of weeks I still wanted to light up just out of shear habit but that part has gotten much better. And I have found the vaping community to be very welcoming to new converts. Both on here and in my local shops.

    I am tobacco clean for only 7 days. I learned that even with the vaping assistance, it still taking some willpower. Congratulations on 47.

    I feel your pain. The first couple of weeks really sucked. They say it takes 40 days to break a habit and it has gotten a lot easier the last couple of weeks. So don't give up. Vape on Brother!

    "Odd Little Man" huh? Well you can't be my husband, he hasn't smoked in 40 yrs. :lol: And he lives here in GA with me! :D But he's definitely an odd little man, no question about that. :thumb:

    My first two weeks I was so euphoric to be not smoking, and not climbing the walls, it felt pretty easy. When the third week hit, I went thru that "3's phase", really depressed for about a week. That passed, and I was back to delighted to be smoke-free and NOT craving. I hate to think what the addiction has in store for me at 3 months, but I'm actually kinda looking forward to it; I quit cold-turkey one time and made it for 3 months before I gave in to the suffering and started smoking again. When I hit 3 months this time, with all this NOT suffering going on, I think I'll be pretty much home free -- as long as I keep vaping! :D

    Glad you stopped lurking and decided to join in on the fun. :thumb: But welcome anyway, even if you have been lurking here for a while -- we didn't know it! :D

    Welcome to ECF Jeff. I can call Odd Little Man that because he happens to be my son in law. He's not as odd as his title might imply, but don't tell him I said that.
