I am so amazed that I have stoppped smoking real cigarettes. I tried everything. Patches, gum etc. couldn't give up) Now I am using some stuff that seems like I am smoking.25 days without smoking. I feel like I am smoking. But it is just water vapouur coming out.
It works. I have given up.
Skycig is the best. But get the money off code.
Great....though I don't smoke but it's good to know that you have stopped smoking.
So you are actually keeping up the new year's resolution. Wishes for your smoke-free journey.
Same thing I am smoking. My last hub was on the Ecig.....I have not had a real cig since.
Well done kmackey. I am so certain that the future is electronic cigs. If I knew how and had some spare cash I would buy shares in one or two of these companies. Perhaps with the money I save on cigs , I will do this.
Congrats to you on no longer smoking the dirty, deadly , old fashioned cigarette.
If you continue buying refills for the e-cigarettes, you won't be saving money. My son and grandson are using them, and they're expensive. If they're only used as a stopgap measure to wean you off real cigarettes and other tobacco products (such as cigars), and you wean yourself from the e-cigarette too, the temporary expense will be worth it.
Sometimes, however, the crutches people use to stop a habit become a new habit that remains with them. I know someone who has been smoking Nicarette gum daily since it was introduced! Using an e-cigarette for an extended period of time is more about holding it in your hand and putting it in your mouth than the taste you derive from it...I think. I don't know that for a fact because I've never smoked. (And you're now thinking, "Easy for you to say!")
Thanks Jaye. You are right. I know I am still addicted to nicotine and it costs money... but much less than I was spending. But it has given me hope that I can get myself weened off nicotene. In the mean time it is no more harmful than drinking coffee.Saving me money but I need to ditch the ecigs eventually. It is important to me that I no longer have the harmful cancerous tobacco. You are right though. Gotta truly quit.
Congratulations. I can't say I know what you went through trying to quit, as I've never been addicted to ciggarettes, but I do know that it's a very hard habbit to break, as I've met a lot of people that have tried and failed at it many times. However, I'm glad to hear you were able to find a way to quit, as you should be proud of yourself.
Thanks Stevennix. You are always so supportive to people who are struggling. Enjoying your film reviews. Are you gonna do one on Warhorse. Went to see it last week. Enjoyed it but recognise many feel it was a Disney style account. Truth is I did shed a tear and was glad of the darkness to hide my embarrasment.
What am I doing hijacking my own posts.
I already did a while back actually. If you want, you're more than welcome to check it out. To be honest, I thought it was a good film too, but it's kind of a shame that it probably won't win "Best Picture" though. However, stranger things have happened though.
Congratulations! I quit cold turkey about 24 years ago.
Keep it up!! This may be the hardest thing you ever do, and it is something you should be very proud of!! Don't ever give up. Don't ever go back!! Stay clean! Respect your body! Love your body - it's the only one you've got!!
I'm so proud of you!!!
it could be better if you give up even skycig. you still look like a smoker in it.
I talked to my doctor about that electronic ciggerette and they said it was just trading one set of chemicals for another.
I smoked for almost 20 years and quit sometime around last september. Haven't even really thought about it. However that came after almost 7 years of trying to quit, trying everything from the gum to the patch to the pill....I think that my will to quit became greater than my will to continue. I also had a pretty pivital faith moment around that time which I think helped alot but you keep at it buddy! Proud of you!
We all know that cigarette is Injurious to health, but when somebody start smoking, he/sh will be fonder to cigarette and it will become very difficult to give up. I must appreciate your efforts for giving up to cigarette. Keep it up buddy.
You should be very proud of yourself. Minute by minute you are getting further and further from the last cigarette. Bravo! You've made a step most smokers never will .
I'm using e-cigs too (personal vaper), I never wanted to or planned to quit smoking. Yes, I should want to but I don't. Or didn't. After almost a year, I've dropped the nicotine level for the first time and am now looking forward to dropping it again until having no nicotine at all. Crazy that I never really paid much attention to how bad smoking makes you feel day-to-day until switching to these and feeling the difference.
I quit a couple weeks ago. It sucks:)
But qutting is better than smoking.
I even dream about smoking, which I never did before I quit.
Jane, well done to you. You have chosen the courageous way of quitting. I am guessing you are relying on willpower alone. I think iread that we are only physically addicted for 17 days. Afterwards it is purely psychological. Hang on in there. You are the bravest of the brave and you will be rewarded with better health and finances.
