Nice to see you're all hanging on!

Wonderful JMFburns, congrats on almost 10 weeks!
I love your mantra too!

I'm a non-smoker now.
I don't like it.
I don't want it.
I won't do it.


We CAN make it

Good morning,

I hope you guys are still doing well. Yesterday morning was a rough one for me. I know one thing, I would have not been able to do this if not for the ecig. I am on an ultra low nicotine level as my plan is not to replace one addiction for another but am glad I'm not getting the ton of toxins that are in a regular cigarette. Eventually I'll wean from that.

Plus, as much as I've wanted to smoke I made up my mind that there's no reason I can. It's hard to do at points but the only way to succeed.

If you've smoked DON'T GIVE UP! Keep at it. I think this takes some time just like any addiction.

Vaping is awesome, until you want to quit vaping. I quit smoking 3 years ago and sometimes I feel like I never really quit it at all.

Will be joining in on this thread / the next thread by tomorrow, most likely. Time to kick that habit, too.

I hear you DeathBox, that's why I'm trying to only use the ecig when I'm absolutely climbing the walls. Sometimes I don't even use it then. My coworker, who quit 30 days prior to me, went out and bought the whole vaping apparatus. She looked up where all the local vaping stores are for me but I'm not going. At least with vaping you're not getting the ton of chemicals they put into cigarettes now. Still, if you're using the same level of nicotine then you're just trading the delivery device for the same thing. My goal is to be free and clear of all of this. For now I'm grateful to have something as a substitute. You have to know me to understand but I didn't think I was ever going to quit smoking. I was almost resigned to the fact that it was going to be what caused my death. So, during this phase of the process I'm thankful to have the ecig. I only buy the disposable ones.

Glad you'll be here!

Hi, LadyBlue!
Welcome, DeathBox (can I call you DB?)
Today is 1 week. I have been biking around the lake and I can breathe again. The roughest part is the morning but, I just let the craving pass. It is much more psychological for me so I either fight it off or let it pass by distraction.
Glad you guys are here!
I look forward to they day that I don't even consider smoking...

Still in and if I got through the events of this past weekend without a cigarette I would say I'm pretty damned committed!

2 weeks today.
