    Today was my first day vaping while having to work, and it's going much better than I anticipated! (8 cigs all day, down from about 25! My Breeze 2 works like a champ, but I'm a firm believer in the old adage that two is one, and one is none, so after receiving a tip in my introduction thread, and fairly extensive research here and on YouTube, decided to order myself the Innokin Kroma-A kit with the Zenith tank. Now I'm eagerly awaiting its arrival! I've set Friday as my first no-stinky-cigarettes day, as it's usually my most stress free day of the week. Fingers crossed, but I feel better prepared for this quitting attempt than I ever have before!

    Congrats on cutting down. The Kroma-A/Zenith combo is a solid choice -- make sure you prime your coils well and start them on reduced wattage. Best of luck Friday (and beyond): We're rooting for you.

    Great choice on the Kroma/Zenith combo. It's the setup that I recommend to most new vapers. Just make sure that you prime the Zenith's coils well prior to filling the tank, and then break the coils in for the first few hours by starting out on a lower wattage setting and gradually increasing it in small increments until you find your desired wattage setting.

    Remember, what's important is not how many cigarettes you smoke every day, it's how many you DIDN'T smoke that is.

    Congrats on your progress. It does get easier with time, once you quit maybe keep a bottle of higher nic mg on hand to get you through the cravings. Just adding some to an active tank can help.

    Like Letitia said...don't be afraid to up the nicotine if you need to. The important thing is to knock down the craving and sometimes it takes more nicotine to make that happen.

    Upgrading wasn't much of an option when I started... it was all junk.

    However, the hobby aspect and certainly rebuilding stuff kept me amused and certainly helped in finally quitting. It sounds a little crazy but as I invested more money, I felt more determined. Once you've bought a few hundred $ of mods and tanks you're obliged to never smoke again.

    Keep going. You'll do it. :)

    Today's stats:
    4 cigarettes smoked
    0 cigarettes enjoyed
    0 regrets!
    Still allowing myself to smoke, but I'm increasingly just reaching for the vape. It tastes better, smells better, quickly kills my urge to smoke, and doesn't make me feel bad.
