By Laura Jayne Like 0 Support 3 Is anyone else vaping to quit smoking? Last night I read the new report on vaping and I’m just feeling a bit stuck in a cycle, I now feel I have no need for smoking which is great but now I am vaping, which even after reading the report I have to think it’s still better than smoking, I have gone from 6mg/ml to 2mg/ml and feel fine, hoping to get the nicotine out completely but have I just moved on to the next thing I have to try and quit? If I do stop vaping will I not not what to do in the morning, in my breaks, after I eat? Will I start smoking again? Don’t get me wrong I am fine in my journey to being a non smoker these are just concerns that flash through my mind when I read things like that report. I was in some ignorant bliss that if I couldn’t stop vaping then I was happy to do it for the rest of my life to not be a smoker, but I guess the reality is that as long as I am still inhaling something into my lungs my body won’t thank me for it. Interested in peoples thoughts about vaping, I have saved over $800 in a month making the switch and I have tried all other nrt products to quit smoking in the past, not looking for people to talk me out of vaping as I’m confident I will start smoking again if I stop using it to quickly but no vaping research or reports have comments from actual people who do it.

I have just replaced one addiction with another 😢. I am going to quit vaping, my quit date is Monday. It seems some people are able to moderate their Nicotine intake but I am unable to, so my only option is to get rid of it completely. Maybe you are one of the lucky ones with some modicum of self control, but I can see that I am not one of them. Good luck on your journey. I will need all the support I can get when I quit on Monday, and hoping to find it here on this site. Moo said: 17 February 2018 I switched to vaping. Started on 6mg nic. I feel now I’m ready to drop it down too which is a bit exciting. I’m on day 28 today, so 4 weeks. I wouldn’t have done it without vaping. I find some days I vape much more than others, but they would he my 30+ a day high stress days. But I also really enjoy it, so the likelihood me giving it up could be an issue. But I still feel I’m better off vaping over smoking. And I think I’ll cross that bridge when I’m on 0mg nic juice and it’s not the first thing I think about, the cravings have gone and a relapse isn’t on the cards. Good luck with your journey, you are doing great and keep up the good work. It’s a gradual process and dont forget Rome wasn’t built in a day 😉 Blondene said: 17 February 2018 baking is a very debatable topic…I vape and I have read reports that it’s dangerous and the nicotine is the main culprit…you can switch to zero nicotine ejuice …but there’s the other side that say it’s safer than smoking ..its your personal choice and opinion that matter as it’s your quit…do what you feel is right for you!

Theres no shortcuts , You know this , You cannot have a foot in both camps . Its the nicotine , one of the most toxic substances known ,plus all the associated habits . Its hard but You can Quit . Every moment after stopping seems an eternity , its short lived in a bigger picture . There are no regrets on my part , having walked the walk . There is No downside.
