I had been trying to quit smoking for over a year, with little to no success. I would use the nicotine patch, then step down to the nicotine gum, and then go on to ‘cold turkey’. I would have varying degrees of success with this method. Sometimes I’d get down to Step 2 patch, only for something stressful to happen and reach for one of my husband’s cigarettes.
A few times I actually would get completely off of NRT’s, only to reach for a cigarette that was way to easily reachable in my house, when something stressful happened, or a major craving hit. It’s kind of funny now, because my original idea of using the vape, was for my husband to use it, not me. I figured it would get cigarettes out of the house, and it would be better for my husband than smoking.
I bought him a complete kit which included range of Vape Juice from Eliquid Depot (link here); with flavor like Banana Ice, Sour Apple, Mango, Pineapple Lemonade, Strawberry, Blueberry Ice, Blue Razz, Peach Ice and Watermelon for him to try out every day, but he didn’t care for it. (He didn’t really want to quit smoking anyway, he just tried it for my benefit)
As rather a last resort for me, I decided to try it myself. AMAZEMENT!! It wasn’t too bad! This thing was showing some promise! The only problem was carrying it around as I had desktop unit. So I did some more online research and found portable vaping device. I ended up getting an inbuilt battery which would last me all day and very much portable.
My original thought was to use 0 nicotine, but after just a short time I found that was not the way to start. I had to learn to ‘trust’ the vaping, and rewire my brain so to speak, to replace the cigarette with the vape, so I bumped my nicotine content up to 31 mgs. Over the past few months, I have gradually worked myself down to 0 nicotine.
I have also got new device using a tank system, because I love to vape! This has been the easiest and funniest way to quit smoking than I ever thought possible. There are so many more positives to vaping over smoking. You don’t have 4000 chemicals going into your body. You don’t have sticky goo on you from wearing an NRT, you aren’t stuck with just one or two flavors of nicotine gum. A whole world of flavors is out there! I can now vape sitting next to my smoking husband with no desire to either wring his neck (haha!) or grab one of his cigarettes. I can vape most anywhere I desire to, including in my convertible car with the top down. (Try that with a real cigarette!) To anyone wanting to quit smoking, I would highly recommend you give this a try. I’m not saying this is for everyone, but if you’ve tried all the other ways with no success, what do you have to lose? It’s worked for me and thousands of other people.
