Quit smoking... accidentally....

The plan was, get an e-cig get regular nicotine dose fluid and then dial it down until I was nicotine and additive free... boy oh boy was I wrong. I ordered everything I thought I needed, it all got here a few days ago and seemed up to snuff, so I smoke my last 2 cigarettes and the next morning I started puffing on the e-cig.. so for 2 days I did that. then last night I come to find out my e-juice has no nicotine in it! I plan to keep puffing this thing for a while, and keep it charged in case I "relapse" afterwards too, so I can keep off analog cigarettes and skip on nicotine! Cheers guys!

quitting nicotine is one of the best things you can do for yourself.....I know...15yrs, pack a day (or more when drinking).

16 years a pack a day... half my life so far! So I can relate to that.

Having watched my father in law die of lung cancer I cannot express how happy I am to hear that you quit. I dipped snuff from around 1979 until 1999 and smoked intermittently from around 1989 to 1999, so I know how hard giving up tobacco can be on a person. Stay strong.

Congratulations! If you ever see the lungs of a former smoker, you'll know you did the right thing.

Don't think that's particularly appropriate for a thread about quitting...

You're aware I invented a nicotine stop smoking supository in a previous Rubenstory TM thread to help the Rube stop smoking.

It was hard to quit 20yrs. ago.I got pissed when cigaretts went up to $1.25 a pack.


On a lighter side.
Any Texican worth his salt can roll a Bull Durhan cig on his tongue and hit a scorpion at 25 yds while spitting tobacco juice riding a maverick steer down hill in a dry gulch.

Congratulations! You went two days and that's the difficult part. One more day and you are free.

Just take my word for it and don't even let yourself get tempted. I probably quit six times before I did for good. There's no such thing as one cigarette won't get me started again - it will.

It's an amazing feel to be free of the addiction and the money drain.

Two bucks a pack is cheap, up here it is closer to ten bucks a pack. That wpould work out to over three grand a year.

Silently thinking I need to smuggle Ohio cigs across the lake and re-sell them to the Canuckers at a profit.
