I have tried multiple times to quit smoking. I have been a smoker since I was 18. I have tried hypnosis, acupuncture, nicotine gum and patches, cold turkey and even Chantix. I have always had severe cravings or side effects. My family has even asked me to start smoking again because they could not deal with me. It has been 3 weeks since I started vaping full time. I kind of eased into it and got down to 2-3 cigarettes per day. It took me increasing the nicotine level on my e-liquid for me to finally quit (even though I only smoked 1/2 pack per day, I guess my body needed the higher nicotine levels to give it up) My Doctor is suggesting vaping to his patients and one of my friends said his Cardiologist suggested it to him. I know it hasn’t been around long enough to have any true studies being done on it but, I like the fact that there are many less ingredients/carcinogens as opposed to cigarettes. After 30 years, I can finally say I am a non-smoker.
