    Hey everyone, new to the forums- figured the one month mark is a good day to come out of lurking in the shadows here! I am so excited because I have not gone this long without smoking since high school! :oops: Well I graduated 20 years ago, so, yeah.

    I actually started vaping 2 years ago, got myself a starter kit for Christmas (Elite 808) and was soon down to a couple of cigs a day. Got to where I had 2 days? I think at that time smoke free, then got kicked in the face by a terrible family tragedy and went back to smoking. I was smoking about half a pack or so a day of American Spirit yellows when I picked up vaping again a little over a month ago. Quickly down to 1 cig a day which I realized was mostly a psychological thing. Decided I didn't need that anymore and here I am!

    So anyway, hello lovely people of ECF! I am happy to join you here!:)

    Congratulations to you and welcome!

    Know the feeling. Surprised that it worked for me too. Long time heavy smoker...quit on a dime. I needed good gear, long battery life, decent juice delivery (topper) and strong juice at first. Vaping at 12 mg/ml a year later. Definitely love vaping, even more so as a hobby. Seems like I vape less now than I did at first. Love the shinny's. Great Journey. Love the trip. Best to you! Good Luck!

    Thanks guys! Really surprised how easy it has been. Not that I haven't had tough moments but I just vaped my brains out at those times and got through. I admit I have one "just in case" ciggie tucked away in a drawer. I sometimes look at it, laugh at it and enjoy the fact that I don't want to smoke that nasty thing.

    That is great! Keep it up and get you a banner going! Watching me banner count the days smoke free actually helps me not light up! You're doing great!

    Thanks everyone for the warm welcome and encouragement. It means a lot! I totally do need one of those banners, I love seeing them on people's posts, I think it is encouraging to others as well as an affirmation to yourself!

    Congrats. That's a heck of a mile stone. I'm at four years and four months cig free. Every now and then I take a drag if someone is smoking around me. Mainly just to make myself sick and reinforce why I quit those nasty things in the first place.

    Congratulations, and welcome! I smoked Am Spirit yellows also. When I get a craving, I come here and read stories like yours. Good on you, and I'm glad you stopped lurking!!

    I'll echo everyone else's welcome to ECF and offer HUGE congratulations on being smoke free for 30 days. That is fantastic. You forgot to say where the party is to celebrate. :)

    It seems that I am not alone in getting true enjoyment out of hearing other folks success stories. I think that is part of the reason I spend time here. It is great that we can acknowledge each other's successes and celebrate our vaping journeys. Keep the vape !
