I have quit smoking cold turkey 8 times. Every time I start working in a new call center, the stress gets to me before long, and I pick up the habit again, disgusted with myself. This time, before I could get to that point, a good friend suggested vaping (e-cigarettes) as an alternative. I was skeptical, but researched it and tried it out. I am happy to report that despite the stress of my job, I am still smoke free, instead vaping when I feel the need.
