I finally quit Smoking

Real cigs that Is, Tried an electronic cigarette and haven't looked back since, Have not had a real cig for over 48hrs now and that Is huge coming from a heavy smoker of twenty years. Vaping for now, Same feel, Same hit, Nicotine too and at a fraction of the price and better for your health. Smokers should try them If they haven't already.

Re: I finally quit Smoking

Well done Steve and keep it up, it'll be well worth it.
Both of my 'kids' are vaping now and have been for some time.
I do wonder about Quit Smoking clinics and when they eventually become redundant will they turn into Quit Vaping clinics.

That's excellent.
SWMBO now rarely uses the ecig either having used it to give up smoking.

Re: I finally quit Smoking

Hi Steve, that's great, I'd like to give it a go myself.  Which one did you use if you don't mind me asking?

I first tried one of the Electric Zebra disposables and then I bought the premier pack, Seems they are out of disposables at the moment though.

Well done Steve  Smiley
I packed up over 24 years ago - pneumonia and a life support system was all it took  Roll eyes
SWMBO still smokes so we  do the Adinkerke run twice a year  Sad
Thought about getting her some E-Lites to try.
Edit - I see the ones you're using are flavoured.

Yes they are tobacco flavoured, My other half has a kit coming though from another company that has cherry and vanilla flavours and you can also get them with zero nicotine.

Re: I finally quit Smoking

I gave up around 1971. I just gave away a freshly opened packet of 20 woodbines to a work colleague one morning and never smoked since.
My daughter uses nicotine free cartridges in her e-cigarette.

Very good and a really wise decision, Were you a heavy smoker before you gave up? I gave up about 8 years ago ( cold turkey ) and found It extremely hard and smoked when I was out socialising and then I just started up again, I gained two stone In weight as well for giving up.
With the e-cigarette though Its surprisingly easy, I wish I had know about It sooner.

Re: I finally quit Smoking

I wasn't what you would call a heavy smoker at around 15 a day and I can't honestly say I particularly enjoyed it being more of a social smoker.

Re: I finally quit Smoking

Well Done Steve,,,..... add this as a real achievement in respect of where you were a year ago.....
I was a medium/heavy smoker, being in the R.N. I started smoking before I joined, when I was 14... after completing basic training, we were "issued" with 200 duty free cigs per month... ( we did have to buy them, but at greatly reduced price being duty free).... at some stages I was smoking 30 a day... like strat, more of a "social thing" than for enjoyment. .... eventually gave up after three years of gradually cutting down per daily count..... . I can still remember the last one I had, ... it was on a sunny saturday morning, about 8.30 the last one in the pack, and I did not go to the shop to get any more... that was about 25 years ago.... only had one since then, about 2 years after I stopped,... tasted vile, and put me off asking for another ! ! ! ..
