19 days today. I feel so much better. My chest doesn't hurt, I don't stink! The thought of a regular cigarette makes me a little queasy..when I'm around people smoking, I excuse myself. I hate that I smelled like that. My poor husband, what he put up with...he must of been so grossed out.

I'm telling you, if you want to quit smoking, get a vapor e-cig. They work! I am down to the 4mg liquid now, going to 2 mg next week. And then none. My doctor was so excited. Said my lungs sounded clear for the first time since he started treating me. No more wheeze.

Thank you S. Thank you thank you thank you!

S...how often do you use your vapor? I feel like maybe I'm using mine too much. Using it way more then when I smoked. It's fun and addictive in it's own way..I think because it tastes so good? Am I doing that because I need the nicotine? I literally puff on it through out the day. Is that bad? No one really told me how to use it. Guilt is starting....

30 days today..a whole month!

When I go back through these posts and see how much I struggled. Wow.

Down to the 4mg of nicotine and sticking with that for awhile.

Have ordered the 0mg.

I think I just want to be free of all of this, vapor too. I know it's fun and I love the taste and that it's not bad for me, but it's still an addiction and causing all kinds of bad thoughts.

One day at a time.

Finally went to the 0 nicotine on Sunday. 7 weeks, no smoking. Not even one.

My lungs are clear, I smell good. I can smell! Food taste better too..even gained a little weight. Good thing for me.

Still using the vapor..I'll give up that behavoir when I'm ready. Or maybe not. Nothing in it that's hurting me now so maybe this will be my one last vice. That and coffee. lol

It's so awesome to say, I'm a non-smoker.

It does feel good. And yes, I feel like I'm done. I smell cigarette smoke now and I just can't believe that I would ever want to smell like that again. Or even the taste. Ick.

Yeah, where is Jane?

2 whole months today!!!!

I saw your posts on the Family Board Jane so I hate that you're back for the reason but so glad you're back!!

You were a huge inspiration in me quitting. You and Stacey. Mom with her Vapor...it all just fell into place.

I love you girls.

CG _ holy s***. I can't believe that I would be an inspirtiont o anyone HA! No I am kidding. I felt the same when Stacey quit. I felt like I might could do it. It has helped so much. I never would have thought that I could have gotten so much just from quitting smoking. Its so freeing. That & I got into the rooms of AA what miracle. You are now the inspiration to many others as well. SO keep on keepin on.
As far as the friends and famiy post. At least I know the recipe to follow in order to start getting some relief. It works for practically anything. The steps, a sponsor and action. Here I go starting all over again.

Love you,

Jane

I don't believe that you are starting all over again. You are just "reminding" yourself of what works when you work it.

I can't believe how many times I have said the serenity prayer this past couple of weeks. Going to the 0 nicotine has had it's, not so great times, but I'm hanging in there. I find myself losing my patience with my granddaughters and that's not like me at all. But, I feel better every day and I will be ok. I will be around to see these girls grow up. I just keep reminding myself of that.

I'm working on my boys now. Jake quit a long time ago but the other 2 are next. I'm headed to the "vape" store today and buying them what they need. Both have agreed to try it and want to quit. Otherwise, I wouldn't waste the money. Neither can afford to buy the set up units. But both can afford to buy the liquid from here on out..cheaper than cigarettes. Yep, I'm on my soap box. The smoke natzi again.

You are my inspiration Jane. Don't even say you're not, even tho kidding. All of you have no idea just how much I learn from you. Every day.

No, didn't pick up but puffing like crazy on this thing. I'm at 0 nicotine now so it's just a crutch at this point but thank God I had it.

My new favorite flavor is Strawberry Smoothie. My husband (who was never a smoker) keeps stealing it.

I guess people are now using these vapes to smoke pot in public. Sigh...there's always some a****** who has to ruin it for the rest of us. Pretty soon, because of that, they will put some law into effect so that we can't use these indoors in public places. Although, those using pot in them, they stink. Like pot. So hopefully, most can tell the difference. Mine smells like strawberries.

Anyway, thanks S. If you didn't keep pushing...

Yeah, I heard that, someone asked me about it last week, if I knew anyone who had tried it for weed. I do. Anyway, I don't think they can make the actual device, the delivery system, illegal...it's just a battery and a cartridge. They are still trying to ilegalize the the nicotine juice because the FDA wants to control everything. If it looks like that might happen, I'll stock up, or buy it in Canada when I'm in VT.
