Totally agree with not inhaling. At first it takes some effort to not inhale as that was just so automatic as a cig smoker that we never even had to think about it. We just did it. What i did was everytime i picked up my mod i said to myself....do not inhale. Kept getting easier each day. Took maybe a week before starting to trust whether or not i was sure that i suffered no nic fits etc. I tested that by not vaping for a night. Could hardly wait to get that vape the next morning Yep same level of nic still where it was. Now its just as automatic as inhaling was. Just keep at it. Your lungs need to rest and heal. And you need to get nic in your system. Win-win in my book . good luck. Rooting for you.
